The setting is Earth. Aliens have crash landed on the planet and are out to harvest the world’s resources. It’s up to Earth’s strongest militaries to thwart the aliens’ attempts at world domination.

Far Cry 5was a satisfying adventure, from its vast open-world journey across the rural landscape of Hope County, Montana to its central conflict against maniacal cult leader Joseph Seed. However, its conclusion left the game with dangling plot threads. Ubisoft has seized the opportunity for resolution with a direct sequel Far Cry New Dawn.
The Far Cry series is known for its exotic locations and maniacal villains, but its latest installment brings the action to the rural landscape of fictional Hope County, Montana. Far Cry 5 tells the story of Joseph Seed, leader of the cult “Project at Eden’s Gate” and megalomaniac who believes God has empowered him to save mankind from an imminent catastrophe known as the Collapse. Joseph’s three siblings, the “Heralds,” have taken over the three county regions, and the task lies on a rookie deputy, the player’s customized avatar, to liberate Hope County.
Let me tell you a story. There once was a wolf who sang atop a cliff every night. A young prince heard her voice, and without knowing the singer’s identity, applauded. The wolf appreciated the praise, and she continued singing for him every night. Then one day, the prince climbed the cliff to meet the singer. The wolf, nervous of what the prince would think of her appearance, slashed the prince’s eyes. Feeling remorseful, the wolf, under the disguise of a young princess, set out on a quest to escort the blind prince across a treacherous forest to seek aid from a witch. This is the tale of The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince.
I’ve been on a Castlevania itch lately. Between trying to main the Belmonts in Super Smash Bros. Ultimateand watching my wife play through Metroidvanias like Symphony of the Night for the first time, I’ve been eager to do some demon slaying. Brazilian indie developer JoyMasher has effectively scratched my itch with Odallus: The Dark Call, a retro platformer inspired by Castlevania III.
