You can get involved in arguments, or even win the heart of a giant woman by feeding sharks to her bird. Obsidian’s newest adventure is a world that lives and breathes, giving the player a real taste of what it is to live outside the realms of reality. It’s a classic adventure game for the adventurous gamer.

Dark Souls Remastered For PS4, Xbox1 and PC By FromSoftware

Dark Souls Remastered is a game like no other in that it is famous for all the wrong things. It builds on a dark fantasy in which almost everyone is trying to kill you. That tagline has become famous and in their marketing campaign, the company adopted the words “prepare to die” as their slogan. Dark Souls Remastered has been upscaled to 4K resolution with 60fps. For Nintendo Switch enthusiasts, the game will be released sometime during Summer 2018. Such is the success of this series that From Software have released a deluxe Trilogy Box at a price of four hundred and fifty Dollars. Contained in the box are the first three Dark Souls games, a pair of bookends, six soundtrack CDs and books.

God of War for PlayStation 4 by SIE Santa Monica Studio

God of War, the eight instalment of the God of War series, is an action-adventure video game. Unlike the previous games that were loosely based on Greek mythology, this game is all about Norse Mythology. The main heroes are Kratos, the former Greek God of War, and his young son Atreus. After Kratos’s second wife dies, father and son embark on a journey to spread her ashes to fulfil a promise to her. Atreus has no idea that his father has special powers. Along their journey, they encounter Norse monsters and gods. Moving slightly away from the tradition of the games, Kratos often uses a magical battle axe instead of his usual signature double-chained blades. Critics have praised the game. The narrative is superb, the design world class as well as the art direction, graphics, characters and the combat moves.

Minit for Switch, PS4, Xbox One, Windows, Linux, Macintosh By Devolver Digital

Minit is a game that is played sixty seconds at a time. In this unusual gameplay, the player uncovers mysteries, lifts curses and overcomes dangerous enemies. It has the potential to be very frustrating in that a minute is a short time to achieve goals, but instead, it is a fun puzzle game that will have you hooked right from the start. This game is filled with interesting characters that are inviting or aggressive and some just want to be left alone.
