EVEN MORE EPIC STUFF
Outriders Outriders is a chaotic shooter made by People Can Fly and Square Enix. For me, this game seemingly came out of nowhere, which is always a nice surprise. The question is: was it really the nice surprise I hoped it would be? We will find out the answer to that question a little further on in this review. So, let's dive in!
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 How do you remake a game that's spent 20 years at the pinnacle of what this industry has to offer? I mean, the original Pro Skater 2 isn't just considered as one of the greatest skateboarding/sport games ever made; it's literally amongst the top three highest-rated video games of all time on Metacritic. You'd probably be better off cutting your losses and photocopying Starry Night at this point, right?
Harvest Moon: One World Since a couple of weeks I can call myself the proud owner of a Nintendo Switch. My wife is super happy with it as well, which sometimes is a bit unfortunate for me, because now we both want some playtime on this awesome console. Last week, I had to baby-sit my sister in law's dog and like the ninja-pro that I am, I surreptitiously took the Nintendo Switch with me, so I could spend some quality game time alone and play the latest Harvest Moon game (after I finished walking and playing with the dog, of course).
Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Heart of the Forest So either I am a fool, or I just really like werewolf games. Last month I reviewed Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood for the PS4. And I was slightly befuddled by the type of game it turned out to be. As I mentioned in that review, I was expecting something completely different, hence was caught off guard, but pleasantly surprised, by the game it turned out to be.
Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & The Secret Fairy This game doesn't take the traditional approach to sequels, it takes the much better approach in my opinion. It creates an entirely new story with brand new areas to explore and things to do. The only returning parts of the mix are the amazing characters. And boy did they take "character growth" literally...
Immortals Fenyx Rising - A New God DLC It has been a while since we first met Fenyx and roamed around the Greek lands, solving intricate puzzles and slaying hordes of evil beasts in service to the gods. So, it is about time to return to ancient Greece and see how Fenyx is doing, wouldn't you agree? And there's more reason than ever to do so, because Ubisoft just released the very first DLC for Immortals: Fenyx Rising, called A New God!
Renature The first board game review of the year is a refreshing one, as we are going to reclaim na-ture in Renature. We played the digital version of the game on last year's Spiel.Digital and we really liked it, mostly because we got a friendly explanation and had a really good time playing it. So it might not come as a big surprise that we tried to get a copy of the game, to review the actual production version and see if it could meet the high expectations we had.
Loot hero DX In medieval times, in a distant land, far from here, a big bad red dragon has been terrorizing the locals. Through its magical powers, evil monsters have gathered in its wake and are taking over this once beautiful and peaceful community. There has to be someone who can stop this evil menace once and for all, but where is he? (enter heroic shot of a 8 x 12 pixel knight ). Ah there you are. Thank god someone can take up this fight against evil, and maybe slay the big bad red dragon.
