By Joel Franey, Friday, 6 November 2020 15:59 GMT With Black Friday 2020 a few weeks away, retailers are already beginning to lower their prices to try and stay ahead of the curve.

Here’s your first look at Geralt’s new armor in The Witcher Season 2

By Dom Peppiatt, Monday, 5 October 2020 16:20 GMT It’s taken a little while, but we’ve finally got a decent look at what Geralt is going to look like in The Witcher Season 2.A few new images of the eponymous character have been officially released by Netflix – and they feature a slightly different look for Henry Cavill’s Geralt.The pair of images show off a new suit of armor that emphasizes the actor’s impressive abs, and goes a bit darker in tone compared to what we saw in Season 1. New armour, same witcher. Here’s your first look at Henry…

Hotshot Racing

The Indie Game Website Sep 8, 2020 90 Hotshot Racing is everything a fan of arcade racers could want, especially if you have fond memories of those aforementioned classics. It truly captures a style of racing that is so rarely seen these days. It’s fast-paced, easy to pick up and play, friendly feeling and, most importantly, it’s so much fun to play.

The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon

Score distribution: Negative: 0 out of 14 Even though it’s disappointing that there are no new companions, noteworthy enemies, or gameplay systems, Peril on Gorgon is excellent for many of the same reasons that the main game was excellent. Its well-paced and immaculately written story, rock-solid comedic foundation, and open-ended RPG gameplay have carried over without losing their luster and are, in some ways, at their best here. Gorgon might be a dangerous rock that has been overrun by hostile Marauders, but it’s one heck of a spot for a hilarious and engaging multi-hour tale of intrigue. Peril on Gorgon…

Star Renegades

The Indie Game Website Sep 7, 2020 90 Star Renegades is an excellent game, one that will keep you entertained for as long as you’ll let it. It’s pretty, the gameplay is exquisite, and ultimately, it’s just a lot of fun. The fact that it’s also got some of the most interesting systems of a roguelike I’ve played helps a lot too. The difficulty can be a bit wonky in places, and the writing doesn’t always hit, but overall, Star Renegades is a deceptively deep and really rewarding game that’ll beat you over the head just as often as it’ll…

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning

Score distribution: Negative: 0 out of 13 It may not be the most important remake of the year, but Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is a gorgeous, dense, and charming adventure. Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is the same game many of us fired up for the first time back in 2012. For the most part that’s a good thing, the vast world offers plenty of paths for the player to take and the combat still feels so dang good. The technical improvements are well done also, the extra details of each environment adding a little more color to Amalur’s world while…

The Sims 4: Star Wars – Journey to Batuu

Whatever you think of Journey To Batuu, it’s the very first pack that you can truly just skip over if it isn’t your thing. Batuu is entirely separate and you can only edit Oga’s Cantina and the First Order supply building as well as the Resistance bunker and a small part of the camp outside. The build items are useful, but fit a very specific aesthetic many people may not like and the clothing options are the same. If you choose to pass on this one, you truly won’t be missing out in terms of the wider game, which is…

The I do suspect that this game will get trashed for its campaign mode. This is unfair considering how great the operations mode is.

Paradise Killer

There are very few murder mystery games that give you as much agency as Paradise Killer does. Although it takes a little while to get into the swing of things, when you’re deep in your investigation, coming across key pieces of evidence or catching your suspects out in a lie, you feel unstoppable. And having the power to make an accusation, right or wrong, is a very nice touch too. I’d like to see the same gameplay replicated in an experience more grounded in reality, but once you get used to the fact you’re living amongst gods and immortal beings,…

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 could have fallen into easy nostalgia. Instead, it lives up to its name. The attention to detail in the easter eggs, the music selection that respects classics like Guerrilla Radio or Superman, the classic outfits combined with the current look of professional skateboarders, all of this makes this game a remake that understands everything and that even laughs at itself.

marvel’s-avengers Metacritic

Marvel’s Avengers

Jeuxvideo.com Sep 3, 2020 65 As a whole, the game is interesting, thanks to a (too?) complete customization system and complementary superheroes. On the other hand, the player often finds himself confronted with awkward choices and great redundancy synonymous with repetitive missions… Although Crystal Dynamics has, unlike BioWare with Anthem, avoided the trap of unbalanced loot, the game remains, as it is, simply attractive if not essential.
