Lists Yakuza: Like A Dragon...


Anyway, if Kena is even coming out next month I'll be grabbing that and Monster Hunter Rise. I might get It Takes Two if any of my friends want to play it.

Kena, please be announced as March PS Plus on the State of Play or at least announce an early date for next month. It looks fucking gorgeous.

First RPG to unlock the power of the character class that is Homeless Guy

I'm expecting Kena to be released in early April and hoping that it ends up being on PS Plus for April.

Evil Genius 2 for me, I absolutely loved the first one and the sequel looks very good.

I didn't know Stubbs the Zombie is getting a re-release, I'll pick it up when it's on sale.

I'm already playing Yakuza 7 on my PS5 so it's unlikely I'll want to restart since the saves aren't going to be compatible.

Lol at this video assuming that Kena would be out when it didn't have an official date. We had barely seen any footage either. There was no way they were just dropping this out of nowhere in March.

Also it's a pretty bad month when you have Balan Wonderworld and a last gen port of Overcooked All You Can Eat in your top 10

Fanboys crying about the lack of games. Not a surprise. Meanwhile anyone who doesn’t have the mental maturity of a 3 year old can see there are plenty of fantastic games this month.

Loop Hero releases on the 4th.

Retro RPG where you don't play the hero: you play the environment. You build the world as the hero walks around fighting monsters from a pre-assembled "deck" of tiles. Build mountains, place rivers, dot the landscape with villages, maybe add some spider lairs and vampire mansions...but watch out for the boss that spawns once you've filled in enough of the world.

There's a demo out and it's crazy addictive.

Thanks for the heads up! Added it to my list.

How is the demo? Right now I'm unable to try it, but the game looks interesting and pretty original.

I've got 19 hours on the demo. You get resources, unlock new tiles, and have a settlement mini-game that all sit next to the main game so there's a large element of progression (even if your world "dies" every time you do, your resources/unlocks/settlement is permanent). The demo progress carries over, and has some really hard unlockables that I've been aiming for. The way the tiles interact is the main draw. Place a village and bam, your hero rests and heals when he gets there. Now add a wheat field and the town becomes better at healing...but every few days a scary scarecrow spawns. Place a vampire mansion next to the village and bam, undead plague in the village! but if you defeat the undead in it 3 times it becomes a town, which is even better than the village. If you delete the village, the wheat fields aren't maintained and become overgrown with razorwheat which act as traps. Stuff like that. The sneak peak at the full version showed more classes, a shitload more tiles, and a lot more clever interactions.

Wow man, sounds very cool and most of all, very original. Thanks!

Do we know if the 4th we'll be getting the full version? Or will it be some kind of early access?

Not that great a month but Rise is going to take up a crazy amount of my time.

MH Rise would have made the month pretty great until I found out it's coming to PC.

It Takes Two looks fun.
