The Folks behind the recently released SOMA, which is already on my contender list for the Twinstiq Awards, are currently releasing a live-action series that promises to take a look at what happened before the events of the game. The first episode clocks in at 5 minutes, and more will be released daily on their YouTube channel until Oct. 5th.
Little warning though: The first episode does include some slight spoilers, unless you’ve seen their teaser trailer before. Read more
One of the most talked-about games to hit the Steam Store this week is Frictional Games' underwater sci-fi horror title, Soma. The game looks to be a bit like Amnesia meets BioShock, which is interesting enough in itself. On top of that, it seems like the story might be worth the price of admission, alone. I don't know about you, but I will definitely be checking this one out at some point.
Also new this week, Blood Bowl 2, a (so far) pretty tepidly-received enhanced port of Final Fantasy V, and an epically crazy sci-fi twin stick shooter called Assault Android Cactus. Talk about a dark descent, then proceed further to see more of this week's new releases.
Well, turns out that my game of the year so far, is a game I’m too chickenshit to play myself, and it’s actually not that great of a game anyway. SOMA, the new title by the folks behind the first Amnesia, offers one of the most interesting pieces of Sci-Fi I’ve seen in years however. It’s a story that keeps you guessing all the way through and is asking some really great questions. Shame it’s a horror title.
But what’s everybody playing over the weekend? Read more
Soccer fans can spend even more time on the virtual pitch with the second great soccer game released on the PlayStation Store in as many weeks. FIFA 16 is here to kick balls and take penalties...or something to that effect. Also out this week, underwater sci-fi survival horror game, Soma, "fantasy" football game Blood Bowl 2, and Pumped BMX +. Take your penalty kicks, then proceed further to see more of this week's new releases.
