Leave it to Grasshopper Manufacture to keep surprising us with strange games. The studio that brought us Killer 7, Killer is Dead and more, now has Let it Die: A F2P Rogue-like. Once again, the punk-inspired studio has a lot of surprises up their sleeves with something no one else has seen before. Unfortunately, playing the game makes you realize why that is.
Dragon’s Dogma is Capcom’s attempt at creating what could be considered Skyrim meets Monster Hunter. The game is an open-world RPG where you and your party fight giant monsters, and I do mean giant. In their attempt at combining these two games, they took one of my least favorite and mixed it with one of my favorites; leaving me somewhere between the two.
Salt and Sanctuary is the latest game from developer Ska Studios, who have made a name for themselves with their unique aesthetics. Staying true to their 2D roots, the game feels like a 2D Souls-like. However, while the game may or may not have been intended to be compared to the Souls series, the game misses the mark on what makes those games so amazing.
Killing Floor 2 is the follow-up to the popular mod turned full game Killing Floor. Developer Tripwire Interactive has spent the last few years working on the sequel and taking it to Early Access. With the game finally out, we have a title that is blast from the past, but kind of ends with a whimper.
