  1. Capcom a few months ago announced Exoprimal. Dinosaurs are falling from the sky and only you can save humanity or something. From the brief video below it looks a bit like EDF but with dinosaurs. Looks promising. Due out next year.
  2. Announced at that there Paradox Announcement Show, this really piqued my interest. Harebrained Schemes' games have improved in terms of strategy gameplay with every release; and this is a great, crunchy choice of setting on which to hang everything. No diving into the narrative in the trailer makes me fear this'll be skewing closer to Battletech's focus on combat over story, than to Shadowrun's delightfully heavy RPG element, but I'm excited to see what they come up with nonetheless. Out later this year on PC and Xbox, and will launch on Gamepass.
  3. Announced and shadow dropped in the Microsoft Developer Direct this is a new rythem action game with cell shaded graphics from Tango Gameworks (Evil Within 1&2, Ghostwire: Tokyo). Available on Xbox Series and PC. Also Game Pass of course.
  4. Pre-install available now.
  5. The first chapter of the next 3 part episodic game from DONTNOD - Tell Me Why - is out on Friday and I couldn't see a thread. I'm always interested in what these guys put out and it looks to keep to the traditions set by the LiS series. Anyway, it's going straight on Gamepass on both Xbox and PC so there's no reason not to give it a whirl! Episode 1: August 27, 2020 Episode 2: September 3, 2020 Episode 3: September 10, 2020 Here's the first trailer:
  6. Thought this maybe warranted its own thread since discussion on it is currently split between the Gamepass, Switch and eShop threads. I love the art style, animation and premise, but kind of switched off when they showed the management side of things, which I always believed wasn’t my thing, but then I remembered how much I grew to love the various management sub games in the Yakuza series, and how much I’ve been enjoying the base management in between missions in MGS: Peace Walker which I’m currently playing. I feel like I’ve been living a lie telling myself I don’t like management sims, or maybe it’s something I’ve grown into, but whatever. Spiritfarer also looks to have a little bit of platforming and exploration, so it could actually be a really sweet blend of stuff. I thought this was a lovely review on Gamexplain: Anyone going in on it? Curious to see how good or otherwise the co-op component is (player 2 can go the cat!)

    Ghost Song

    Just a few more minutes and Ghost Song will finally be released! This one's been in development from before Hollow Knight was even a game jam entry, so yeah, the wait has been long! Gonna dive into this over the weekend. Anyone else keeping an eye on this metroidvania?
  8. Surprised not to see a thread on this unless my searching skills have let me down again. Monster Train is a deck builder which appears to crib heavily from Slay the Spire, but I'm actually finding much more enjoyable! At first glance it appears a lot more complex, with a more MtG approach of summoning many monsters, buffing them, as well as spells, all over 3 floors. But after just a couple of runs it all fits together really smoothly. Any StS veterans will know the score- pick a class and choose a direction from the first few cards, then keep your deck as lean and focused as you can because the final boss will escalate things. The differences are all positives to me: 5 classes, one your main and one support, each with 2 different basic cards and champions, allow for 160 different starting setups and playthroughs before the different upgrade paths and artifacts are taken into account. Very generous deck customisation from the off- it's not heal or upgrade, it's heal and upgrade and discard 2 and an event. But this doesn't mean it's easier, just more interesting. Also it's free on Gamepass, so there's no excuse to skip it.
  9. Just hit early access today on Steam and Gamepass (19.99 on steam). I've only played the first few days but it's a very polished one of those with a charming art style. Steam Deck users will want to use Proton GE - 7.15 (Until we know better) so the in game vids play. Sadly no controller support yet but there are quite a few community control schemes to play with on Steam Deck. Apparently controller support will be coming later. I think I'm going to like this one.
  10. Stavi


    Why is no one talking about this fantastic game?! It's just released on gamepass and I had an amazing time last weekend playing couch-vs with my kids and my brother. It has a real Towerfall vibe about it where you're leaping around an arena picking up various weapons (light sabres! Rocket launchers! Shotguns!) trying to take each other out. It's a little tricky at first, but once you get a feel for the controls it just clicks. And when it does it's amazing. Within 20 minutes you'll be pulling off some pure Jon Wick moves (as a spider!). An example being I was being chased weaponless around area by my brother who had a light sabre. I managed to grab a shotgun midair, turnaround and blast him in the face to cheers and laughter all round. These moments happen all the time. It's on gamepass. Try it (especially if you liked Towerfall).
  11. Last Stop, by Variable State, is a game that would be painful to describe in spoilers and PM maybe isn’t inclusive. (note. More of a visual novel, with mild interactivity and some nice scene framing). Accordingly, here is an open spoilers thread. You. Have. Been. Warned. In both this post and the thread title.
  12. The Xbox app for Windows is about to become less awful! hurray! https://www.theverge.com/2021/11/11/22776024/microsoft-xbox-app-windows-folder-install-uwp-options

  14. Out on gamepass now and I believe for sale tomorrow. You are time. Your friend Miss Mass gets killed by Golden Boy causing the big bang. You have to travel through time and space to figure out how to stop it. A very, very weird game full of Jazz http://www.genesisnoirgame.com/ I'm only a little way in on XBox but it's really good. Headphones recommended.
  15. Just completed this on Gamepass and had a fantastic time with it. The game is a perfect recreation of 90's internet, except surfed through mind bands whilst you sleep. You play an enforcer, which is essentially a RLLMUK moderator, except for the corporation that runs the internet. It's an incredibly accurate pastiche of the internet, and the scope is pitched perfectly. It's a tiny microcosm of the internet, full of fan pages, badly drawn comics, arguments over bands, nostalgia, conspiracy theories, and oh so many gifs. And the game is really just reading these pages, and getting drawn into the lives of the people behind them. Initially I thought the game was going to be a puzzle game where you have to work out what rules are being broken, but the game quickly dispels that notion by making it completely explicit what you're looking for, and just laying puzzles in place to prevent you going there. There are a few issues with it- typing with a pad is terrible, and some of the late game passwords are long, which is really frustrating. Combined with the obtuseness of some of the later puzzles means I used a walkthrough later on rather than try and puzzle through. Apparently there's a great hint system though, which I somehow missed. The other thing I'd advise is to enjoy it the most you need to take the time to allow yourself to get involved in the people's pages- rushing through would be utterly pointless here. However, just like real internet, a lot of it is chaff, so only read the pages which interest you, don't try to 100% from the off or you'll burn out. Thoroughly recommended, especially because it's free on Gamepass.
  16. PHOGS! (Pronounced "Fogs") is out today on pretty much everything and it seems to be reviewing exceptionally well. https://culturedvultures.com/phogs-xbox-one-review/ https://www.heypoorplayer.com/2020/12/02/phogs-review-ps4/ https://www.thedigitalfix.com/gaming/review/phogs/ Essentially it's a co-op puzzler (both couch and online) where you each control the head of a conjoined dog. Yeah, you read that right. Anyway, it's on Gamepass which should give it some exposure and it's installed on my Xbox ready for my other half tonight.
  17. GDC info That ain't no track....
  18. From the makers of Layers of Fear and The Observer. Looks pretty good and is on gamepass so no reason not to give it a try. Plus there's a really nice doggo. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-08-30-blair-witch-review-lumpy-horror-that-has-its-fair-share-of-scares
