How many games allow you to assassinate people as a Ninja, throw toilets at people as a Wrestler, and chloroform people as a Doctor in the same game? Just one, and it does so in complete expert fashion. At full price, the game is just $20, which is an absolute steal.
This is painful. Waking was made by one person and is a game of true passion. It contains a concept I would like to recommend to anyone who is comfortable enough to delve within themselves for the sake of an intimate video game experience. What Jason Oda set out to do is truly touching. Yet the vessel in which the experience is presented is badly blemished.
Remnant is an incredibly solid souls-like shooter and Swamps Of Corsus is simply more of it. It isn’t perfect but the asking price isn’t steep and it can add a significant amount more playtime to the game. The new survival mode is incredibly fun to play and there is a lot to enjoy if you already were a fan of Remnant.
Is it worth it? It is for me. Total Warhammer 2 is a complex game with deep mechanics, varied gameplay and I’ll never tire of watching my Carnosaurs thrash the filthy Skaven (Via viewing replays of course). It takes an investment of time to dig into the game but that investment pays off in spades when you know what you’re doing. It’s just a shame that you need to seek sources outside the game to truly grasp it.
Whenever the game starts to lose its luster, the next level throws a curveball at you to keep you engaged. The single-player is pretty pointless and for the price, I do wish the game was a bit longer. Overall Moving Out is a great party game that would make a solid addition to anyone’s couch co-op repertoire. It’s entertaining and depending on your company, hilarious as things inevitably go wrong.
Stranded Deep is a pretty chill survival game. I enjoyed the setting and my early hours with the game. It had a few high points such as building my raft and my first boss encounter. My enthusiasm didn’t last long, however, as the lack of variety and surprise combined with the game’s problems and inconsistencies wore me down.
The lack of meaningful gameplay, try-hard humor, and day one DLC make it hard to recommend. You could get some laughs by getting some friends together and goofing off in the open world, but there are much better alternatives out there you could spend your money on.
