Evil Dead: The Game is a surprisingly good nostalgic romp thanks to its fluid matchmaking system and game modes. It is a blast to play as a Survivor and it’s downright gratifying on the Demon side of things. However, the offline missions feel lacklustre and are forced to unlock the in-game characters on the single-player side of things. Considering its lack of polish and not-so-enticing visuals on last-gen consoles, your best bet would be to get the deluxe edition on sale when most of these issues have been fixed. Still, it is an easy recommendation if you have a fun squad to hang out with.
Salt & Sacrifice is a very challenging game and that may put off a lot of people. But these games are made with a very specific audience in mind. For fan, the sequel is a bigger and better version of the first game with a satisfying kill-die-repeat gameplay loop. It doesn’t make any compromises in quality and that is quite evident from the look of the game to how it play. If you’re someone who’s not put off by the challenge (that’s sometimes needless) and “immersive” Souls features, definitely give Salt & Sacrifice a try. It’s definitely worth one’s salt….hahaha…I’ll see myself out.
While the narrative aspect and the frustratingly unresponsive bot are not the strongest suits of Time Loader, its intricate platforming and interactive puzzles present some engaging challenges. Though the story seems smart at first and has multiple ways in which it can come to a close, its heavy focus on characters without making them engaging feels like a total emotional disconnect at the time of its closure.
Dune: Spice Wars is perfectly poised to be the meta-defining 4X real-time strategy game in the market. However, the lacklustre amount of game content as well as the repetitive gameplay does hurt the game’s re-playability. There also seems to be some performance issues, albeit mild, which hinder the player’s experience.
What on first glance I thought that Winter Ember can beat most indie stealth games out there, that thought evaporated soon because pretty quickly the game started to feel repetitive as it never introduces any new mechanics. Also while the levels themselves are cool they also have interesting design choices, where you just loop back to the same point like in metroidvania games. Normally this is okay if its an occurrence here or there, or if its essential to the mission, but after a while it feels off In other words, give it a pass.
Trek To Yomi is a surreal cinematic experience based on times when Samurai existed. You play as Hiroki and get to experience his traumatic fate and his journey where he travels to a depth of Yomi itself only to protect the people he took an oath to protect. The combat system is straightforward and sometimes troublesome, but the cinematic experience put throughout the chapters of the game will have you hooked. I proudly give the game a super 8/10. Personally, you don’t want to miss this title at all!
No Place Like Home is an RPG based upon restoring a post-apocalyptic world into a beautiful green land with animals prospering and crops growing all over. The game may have a satisfying take on cleaning mountains of trash and recycling it into decorative items and resources, it mostly feels like a Trash Cleaning Simulator. With the lack of proper story writing, dialogues, poor graphics and repetitive music, No Place Like Home never had me hooked into it.
Although there were some moments in the game where I felt frustrated with how little explanation about objectives in the game was given. But there was nothing more satisfying than having soup at the end of the day and going to sleep using a bedroll. Overall Fix Fox is supposed to be a relaxing game targeted at all age groups but its lack of explanation of objectives can sometimes make the experience an unpleasant one.
$40 might be too much of an asking price for Weird West. But thankfully, the game is on Xbox Gamepass from day one. If you’re looking for something new to try out, There’s only a cheap subscription in your way of enjoying the game over a weekend. But if you want to enjoy the game in all its glory, I suggest waiting for an update or tw
Cat Café Manager is a great management simulator with cats to care for and cuddle anytime you wish to. Expand your café according to your rules and shape it into your perfect dream café. Have a perfect kitchen with a variety of food on your menu. And finally, make your café the heart of Caterwaul Way.
MLB The Show ’22 puts up a stellar display of the baseball spirit, thanks to its more realistic than ever in-game visuals and player animations. The in-game physics ensures that every time you hit the ball, it’s a rare and rewarding sight to behold. Despite its fair share of nuances in microtransactions and online matching, there’s enough content to keep you hooked for at least three months time. As for newcomers, the payoff might not be that significant in the short term, but in the long run, it is an easy recommendation.
Happy’s Humble Burger Farm is a dark, cooking-themed, psychotic game with a very deep plot and storyline. The game almost tricks you into making you fall prey to the plot but once you break the loop, things get even darker, horrifying and strange. The game is filled with lore, and backstories to make you understand how you ended up here and has a perfect setting and visual filter for it. The game however has a clunky user experience and the controls could’ve been mapped better.
Despite its numerous shortcomings, lack of side activities, and plot-armored love story, The Kaito Files manages to deliver a finale that feels like a refreshing change of pace in Ryu-Ga-Gotoku’s sister series. It’s not as compelling as the Yagami or Kiryu Saga but it is enough to establish Kaito as a standalone protagonist. Considering its current price tag, you should pick it up while it is on sale or buy the season pass to make the most out of it.
Medieval Dynasty tries really hard to become the simulation cum survival RPG that people want it to be – and despite a few flaws here and there, does manage it quite well (if you manage to forget the RPG aspect of it). If you want to flex your creative mind organizing a living, functioning village from scratch – this game should certainly be up your alley. But if you want a pure RPG that wants to stand apart from the masses with some different mechanics – be sure to look elsewhere.
WWE2K22 is a solid entry into the Wrestling sim ecosystem, but things have changed. AEW is coming out with their own Wrestling sim this year, and WWE2K22 will have a legit competitor in more than a decade. It’s definitely the best wrestling game in the last 3 years, but will it be the best wrestling game this year?
There isn’t much to talk about Dawn of Ragnarok. You can grind your 30-40 hours, finding loot, collecting new powers and uncut gems that reward you with decorations for Ravensthorpe that you might not even log back into, to actually place them. The expansion has a great map to explore, but again, lacks good lore, deep storytelling and interesting powers. Dawn of Ragnarok is, unfortunately, a huge missed opportunity. You might have fun for the first few hours, but it will be a dry experience until you reach the last part. The side missions are more enjoyable than the mains, and you will have more fun hunting the chosen ones and other groups.
Gran Turismo 7 marks a delightful return to the series’ roots and delivers a trendsetting campaign that we haven’t seen since the PS2 era! Despite its strong focus on the campaign, it almost retains every competitive aspect of 2017’s GT sport. Its photorealistic visuals and life-like animations are possibly one of the best yet. With almost 25 years in the making, Gran Turismo 7 is not only the celebration of cars this time, but it is also the celebration of the legendary franchise itself.
Ocean’s Heart feels like a mixed bag for a number of reasons. It has great dialogue and side quests but features a lacklustre protagonist and a world brimming with unexplored potential. It riffs off of 2D Zelda combat but fails to execute it nearly as well. While it borrows elements from the classics, it doesn’t always stick to the landing. It feels so close yet so far to being a great top-down RPG, but overall leaves a lot to be desired.
Shadow Warrior 3 is a well-paced, well-polished first-person shooter. The gunplay is fast, brutal and beefy with lots of blood, guts and gore. It may not break any new ground but the formula established here is a solid framework for future entries. That being said, the short campaign, limited exploration, and lack of replayability factor make Shadow Warrior 3 a one-and-done kind of experience. The inclusion of story DLCs, an endless mode, NG+ as well as more difficulty settings will make it a better game for sure.
Expeditions: Rome is a decent game with a huge focus on micro as well as macro-management that makes its mark in the small genre of strategy games. I’d recommend an immediate buy if you like turn-based games and want one with a decent blend of RPG mechanics in it.
