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.
Mysteries and point-and-clickadventures are two gaming niches that I adore, so I was looking forward to play The Raven Remastered, a port of the 2013 game The Raven – Legacy of a Master Thief. The game features an original story that is inspired by Agatha Christie’s murder mystery novels.
Valiant Hearts isn’t your typical war game. It isn’t a first-person shooter where you run in guns blazing. Rather, it is a slower puzzle adventure title centering on four ordinary individuals. It shares their poignant experiences during the Great War, otherwise known as World War I.
A highlight of Nintendo’s Super Mario Odyssey was its capture mechanic – the ability to take over another creature’s body to complete challenges. Zoink Games takes that possession concept and injects its own wacky sense of humor with Flipping Death, a game that blends adventure, puzzle platforming, and a bizarre artstyle that is out of this world.
The word Yomawari roughly translates to “night watchman.” It’s an apt description of my experience with Yomawari: The Long Night Collection: patrolling a small Japanese town alone at night. In this survival horror game, monsters lurk around every corner, ready to kill. This collection compiles two games: Yomawari: Night Alone and its sequel Yomawari: Midnight Shadows. Both appear to be cute adventures at first glance, but as the old saying goes, “things aren’t always as they seem.”
