Special Mentions For Our Audience

A Bastard’s Tale – PS4 Digital

I almost did not feature this game because it has such a minimalist look. But if you look deeper you will see that there is a lot of tight mechanics there. This seems very much to be a spiritual successor to those brutally difficult Atari games of my youth.

Aragami – PS4 Digital

There was no question about featuring this game, however. This is a very pretty looking 3D stealth action game where you star as a ninja. It looks very cool, and it also makes you question why there aren’t more games like this mixing the Kojima stealth action with ninjas.

Atari Flashback Classics: Volume 1 – PS4 Digital

Atari Flashback Classics: Volume 1

I’m not sure how many of our audience members will appreciate these games, but I had to feature them. This collection features classics such as Combat, Centipede, Swordquest, Star Raiders, and more.

Atari Flashback Classics: Volume 2 – PS4 Digital

Atari Flashback Classics: Volume 2

Likewise with this game as well, although it’s a little surprising that they did not just bundle them both together. This one features Asteroids, Adventure, Haunted House, Major Havoc, and more.

Mafia III – PS4 Digital, Retail (Out 10/7)

New Orleans has been explored a couple times before, but it’s not nearly as represented as locations like New York, Los Angeles, London, or Tokyo. The major release of this week bears a lot of resemblance to the Grand Theft Auto games, but the Mafia franchise has always taken itself much more seriously and has carved out it’s own niche and fan base.

Wheels of Aurelia – PS4 Digital

This is a very interesting little niche indie game. It calls itself a narrative driving game, whatever that means. But from all appearances it is almost like a visual novel in some respects, including the fact that it has 16 different endings. That will definitely add onto the replay value, as well. But one of the primary aspects that drew me to featuring this one was that it is set in Italy during the 1970s. Even if I didn’t already love the films from that area and time, that is a very novel concept for a game.

About William Haderlie

Born in the 1970's, I've been an avid participant for much of video game history. A lifetime of being the sort of supergeek entrenched in the sciences and mathematics has not curbed my appreciation for the artistry of video games, cinema, and especially literature.

    I usually suck at stealth games, but Aragami is really addictive. I really like that it doesn’t punish me for being a bit too kill happy. Also the trophy titles in the game are great.

    • William Haderlie

      Nice to hear, I haven’t had time to play it due to a bunch of game reviews, but it looks like something I would like to buy in the future.
