Remember that scene in Kazaam when the kid wishes for so much junk food that it reaches the sky and then he’s really happy because he’s a 12 year old boy with a room full of junk food? What’s that? You’re not old enough to know what Kazaam is? Well… VIDEO GAMES!!!
Bad North ($14.99)
Bad North is one of the many indie games that I’ve had my eye on since E3. Everything about it just looks unique and a lot of fun… I know, not the most original sentence discussing a game, but I mean with Bad North. It just looks like a lot of fun.
Now, I’m not saying that I’m aware of every single indie game that’s out there but I try really hard to keep an eye on what’s out there. I bring that up because I’ve never heard of this game and while I have no idea what the actual game is, I can safely say that it looks amazing. It almost looks like Minecraft but instead of everything being blocks, it’s all clay. I’m not sure if the game is any good or not, but just looking at the trailer, it looks really interesting.
Divinity Original Sin 2: Definitive Edition ($59.99)
For a long time, I had heard those PC nerds talk about how this was one of the most amazing games of all time, but I just rolled my eyes. After all, those people still use a mouse and keyboard to play their games. IT’S CALLED A CONTROLLER! TIME TO UPGRADE! It turns out though, a broken clock is right once a day because Divinity Original Sin 2 is one of the most games I’ve ever played. Watch the trailer, then go to your PlayStation, and click the buy button. You’ll thank me in the morning.
Donut County ($12.99)
Donut County, yet another game that I’ve been talking about since E3. This game however, I’ve already purchased and have already started playing. Guess what? It’s a lot of fun! Do you like relaxing, quirky puzzle games that’s filled with fun characters that speak fun wacky dialogue? THEN GO BUY THIS GAME! JEEZ! Take a hint…
Fire Pro Wrestling World ($49.99)
Do you like wrestling games? Great! Go buy this. I spent 2 hours perfectly recreating WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan and then had him wrestle a famous Japanese man. I may have lost my first match, but I assure you it was a lot of fun. I can’t wait to see what the community creates so I can down their hard work and eventually have one of the biggest wrestling rosters ever assembled in the history of video games. And I know what you’re thinking. That already happens with the other wrestling game on the market. Well… yeah, but this game’s actually fun to play.
Strange Brigade ($49.99)
IGN recently gave Strange Brigade a really promising review which is great because this seems like the kind of game that gets a hardcore fan base that claims it’s really good, but can’t seem to convince anyone else to play it. Which is a shame because this is a title that’s been on my radar for a while and it does in fact look like a lot of fun. Check out the trailer and if you like what you see, try and convince your friends to pick this one up with you so you guys can go and enjoy some co-op goodness.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 ($49.99)
When Yakuza 0 came out we were all shocked at how good it was. Talk to any long time Yakuza fan though and you’ll quickly learn that we were all learning something that long time fans of the series had known for years. Even with how good Yakuza 0 was, a lot of remained skeptical. That was until the release of Yakuza Kiwami, the HD remake of the first Yakuza game. Suddenly, we had two great Yakuza games on our hands and before we could go out and admit that we were wrong and announce that Yakuza was one of the best series out there, SEGA hit us with Yakuza 6. OH MY GOODNESS! Mr. Sonic, what did we do to deserve this greatness?!?! And do you know what he said? NOTHING! He just reached into his pocket and pulled out Yakuza Kiwami 2, the HD remake of Yakuza 2. Oh my Lord, I’m starting to feel the vapors! Not only is this yet another great Yakuza game but according to all of the long time fans, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is the Yakuza title with the best story. Not only that, but it features content that ties back into the stuff we all did in Yakuza Zero. Seriously folks, if you haven’t jump on the Yakuza band wagon yet, you’re missing out. GET TO IT.
And for those of you that haven’t seen Kazaam yet, at least now you understand what that little boy was going through when his wish of endless junk food came true. This week is just too much goodness to handle. Thankfully we get small break next week before everyone’s favorite neighborhood Spider-Man shows up.
