I won’t gonna sugarcoat it: Close to the Sun is immensely disappointing and kinda bad. The only two redeeming qualities of this game are the sometimes good dialogues and the standout art style (including the world design) that together can create some fun and enjoyable moments that are able to elevate the product from the absolute mediocrity.

The game is a rather big surprise as the IP is pretty much dead with the sequel being shelved, and many thought the game is a simple cash grab with barely any fun attached to it. Especially so close to being to Days Gone release. In a weird twist of fate though, World War Z: The Game is actually….fun?

Magic Design Studios, creators of Unruly Heroes, has confirmed the premiere of their platform video game on PS4, a platform on which the game could not be released in its premiere last January.

Outward - The story isn't the game's strong point either, as all you get to do after creating the character, who will be one-of-the-many, is to have 150 silver coins to be paid to your village as your ancestors had debts. You join your friend called Yzan, you get shipwrecked - and if you think co-op gameplay here, you are right -, and you'll have five days to pay it back.

I'd have gladly swapped the format here, but since I do not have an interest in receiving yet another complaint novel, I'm not going to use a dialogue format in how Dangerous Driving isn't exactly something that the Burnout series was on the PlayStation 2 (fine, include Burnout Paradise, too...), as it has a few points that don't give it a high score at the end of the day.

The Surge - The early enemies in the video provide no threat, but the same cannot be said about the later ones: they will be ready to fight, and they won't go down in one shot.

It is a relatively simple story, with not that many twists or turns, and a lot of things are spelt out by the developers. The occasional revelations do happen, but I think the players will appreciate the story and most importantly the lore around Buddha plus Japanese history.

You are a Division agent, a hero that every civilian, and basically Judge Dredd that eliminates all opposition to the City’s good.
