Link from Skyword Sword

Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary

It’s also The Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary! Nintendo unveiled an HD remaster of 2011’s Skyward Sword.

 

This new version will give players a chance to try the game without stubborn motion controls, the second worst thing about the game next to the “Sacred Tears” trials. The best thing about the game? Groose’s hair.

 

Characters from Bravery Network Online

Bravery Network Online

When Toronto game-maker Damian Sommer hit a wall finding new Pokémon opponents, he decided to make his own game.

 

Bravery Network Online is about training, customizing and combating gangs of fashionable future people in lieu of pocket monsters. Use your attacks and taunts to lacerate opponents’ armour and ego in this turn-based, sci-fi fighter available in Early Access on Steam.

Character from Disco Elysium: The Final Cut

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut

2019’s dark-horse hit Disco Elysium comes to home consoles this month with the The Final Cut edition.

 

You’re a detective suffering from amnesia after an incredible bender, solving the murder of a corpse in a tree while navigating the politics of Revachol, a postwar shipping town, and the maze of his own mind.

 

Warring aspects of his psyche, like logic, endurance and ‘savoir faire,’ decide the outcome of your actions in place of traditional RPG skill trees. The Final Cut adds new quests, full voiceovers and will be free for owners of the game’s PC version.

Artwork for Valheim

Valheim

Gamers have been busy beavers. Valheim, a game about logging and Vikings, has become one of the fastest-selling PC games of all time.

 

A team of up to nine roughhousers can forage in moody mystical forests, craft, sail, build elaborate homesteads and fight trolls.

Main character from Loop Hero

Loop Hero

The next big game to-do looks to be Loop Hero. An amalgamation of all the most addictive genres (RPG, deck builder, city builder, roguelike, clicker, tower defense), Loop Hero has you doing circles— in a good way.

 

Pick up unpredictable cards to manipulate your hero and your environment, changing your repeating path to confront the doom-bringing Lich.
