Hey guys, just a quick post for me this time. There have been two new games released recently that I think really deserve your attention. If you’re wondering what to play, this quick spotlight may be just what you need at this time so without further ado, here are the most noteworthy new games on the market for PC users.
First one is Dishonored II. You’re probably familiar with this one by now since the marketing of Bethesda is doing a nice job but in case you’re not, it’s a first-person game that is very reminiscent of the old (and frankly speaking new one as well) Thief games. Of course, it is not a Thief game so you may expect it’s to be filled with some combat as well as great stealth mechanics.
Without going into much details to avoid the possibility of spoiling it to anybody who hasn’t played the original game and is planning on doing so, let’s keep things as basic as possible.
You have powers. You can blink, you can freeze time, possess humans and animals to gain all kinds of different advantages, it has a great progression system allowing you to upgrade some of those powers so they can be even more effective and on top of that, you have a wide variety of weapons. Not a very conventional weapons, but the stuff like crossbow with all kinds of darts, explosive, sleeping, steel, etc. There are various types of Robles, like grenades and smoke bombs of a kind, blah, blah, blah you get the idea.
Possibly the best thing about this game is that it should you option for a nonlethal play through you may finish it without ever having to fire a single shot from your weapon or use your sword to assassinate anybody absolutely ever. This is of course the most challenging way to play the game but at the same time if these the most rewarding and makes you feel great while doing it.
The other recently released game that I would like to mention is Tyranny.
If you’re a fan of well-written role playing games that truly allow you to role play that’s highly likely that you’re more than well aware of this game. For those of you that are not, Tyranny is the latest game made by Obsidian Entertainment. They are the guys behind Fallout: New Vegas which is, by many considered to be the best “new Fallout” game, and to be honest, I do agree with this statement. It is definitely the most role playing modern Fallout title.
They are also the guys who made critically acclaimed Pillars of Eternity so, if that’s your kind of game, then Tyranny is definitely something you want to look out for. Otherwise, I recommend this one to everybody who appreciates a well written computer RPG with party systems and tactical combats where your choices directly affect the development of the story.
That’s it for today, just wanted to make a quick notice of these new games in case you were wondering what to play next. Hope you like my picks. See you guys soon!
