In the Outward RPG, you’re not really special. You’re not a hero. And you certainly aren’t the chosen one. Yet you must still venture forth and overcome incredible odds with no handholding. Not every player will make it, but if you like challenges, you might thrive.
We take a look at Cannon Arena in beta this week, a tank versus tank combat game that attempts to blend single and multiplayer modes, and do something a little bit different for this classic genre.
Don’t Escape: 4 Days to Survive is an old school style point and click adventure that tries to stay grounded with real world solutions to the game’s many problems, while also presenting a compelling and somewhat epic sci-fi story.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is one of the most engrossing (and sometimes simply gross) adventure titles to come out in a long time. Set during a time of plague, it finds a vulnerable young French girl and her little brother trying to survive invaders, angry peasantry, the Inquisition, and billions of very hungry rats.
Into the realm of rogue-like adventure games like ADOM, Shiren the Wanderer, Nethack and others, we can add the delightful Tangledeep, one of the best RPGs of this type that we have ever played. Get tangled up in this great dungeon delver.
Although not particularly unique among stealth action games, Aragami: Shadow Edition is a solid title that will thrill those who like sneaking and stabbing in a semi-realistic cel-shaded environment. Give this one a whirl.
The amount of gory details and hardcore fighting inside Mortal Kombat 11 is insane. And it’s got a deep story mode, a krypt diving adventure area and plenty of brutal one versus one combat. If you thought that Mortal Kombat 10 was amazing, then this new game is your combat masterpiece.
