Mirror’s Edge showed us you can have a game that lets us live out our parkour fantasies. But what if we wanted to be a parkour ninja? Well Ghostrunner suits just that. Now we’ve got a sword and can jump all around in first person perspective.
There is something about the first person perspective that brings out an intensity that isn’t felt in other ninja games. When the blood flies onto the screen it feels like it’s on you. You’re basically ping ponging at lightning speed from one enemy to the other. Trying to figure out how to master the kill with that new power up you just received. The frenetic insanity is addicting.
With the Xbox Series X and PS5 you’ll get 4K, 120 FPS, Post-Processing HDR, ray tracing fidelity mode, 3D audio, and haptic feedback on DualSense 5 controllers. So obviously it looks great! If you only have the PS4 and Xbox One you will have access to the next-gen versions as well that feature Wave Mode and accessibility-focused Assist Mode.
The FIA World Rally Championship is in its 50th season in 2022. So WRC 10 is celebrating by reliving classic moments from 1973 to the present day.
Some of the historic rallies include Acropolis Rally (Greece) and Rallye Sanremo (Italy). Of course there are over 20 iconic cars from Alpine, Audi, Lancia, Subaru, Ford, Mitsubishi, and Toyota.
Career mode has been updated with a livery editor and the ability to create your own team. You should be able to hear the difference between WRC 10 and other editions as well as the audio design has been reworked.
You can pick up WRC 10 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC and on Nintendo Switch.
City vs Neighborhood. Next-gen vs. current-gen. This is the battle in NBA 2K22 you get a pretty different package per generation of console. The City is available on Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Neighborhood is on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. With The City you’ll get a new Quest system and NPCs. Neighborhood changes the location to a cruise ship with some off boat outings!
So you’ll want to play the game across both generations for the full experience. Thankfully there is cross progression with MyTEAM. Buying the Cross-Gen Digital Bundle with MyTEAM makes jumping between both generations easy to do.
When you’re done skateboarding through town and start playing basketball pay close attention to to the dribbling. They’ve modeled over 50 new signature styles from both the NBA and WNBA.
To keep the game feeling fresh they’ve also introduced First Fridays. Ever Friday new songs will be added to the soundtrack throughout the season. Tons of music labels are participating such as Columbia Records, Def Jam Recordings, Low Profile/Casual Records, Ninja Tune, and Warner Records. They’ll give you a mixture of both up-and-coming artists and world-renowned musicians.
Pretty cool to see NBA 2K22 continue to expand beyond the pure basketball game and more into a basketball lifestyle game. Can’t wait to see it keep growing!
As the story goes Bright Memory is an indie game made by one person in China. As you’ll see from the trailer the work is impressive.
Bright Memory is an intense over the top first person shooter. You’ll spend the time switching between shooting and melee attacks. Every now and then there’s a puzzle to figure out before you can move onto the next battle.
Sadly the game itself is short and you’ll probably beat it in a couple hours. The visuals are cool enough to make you want to play it all the way through. If you get Bright Memory on the Xbox Series X you’ll be able to enjoy it all at a smooth 60fps.
Get ready for a car race full of challenge and artistry. There’s a reason why not everyone can be a professional rally driver. WRC 9 will confirm that you should stick to your day job.
Impressively WRC 9 has almost 559 miles of road to race through. With diverse locals such as Japan, New Zealand and Kenya. The tracks are cramped, but the vistas are a beauty. If you make the slightest wrong twitch of the stick you’ll quickly find yourself falling off cliffs, or flying through the air after hitting a boulder.
You will be able to enjoy WRC 9 on both the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X at a new 4K 60FPS. The extra frames should help your mastery of the course.
As they say practice makes perfect and that’s what you’ll be doing in WRC 9.
NBA 2K21 is the cleanest basketball game out there. With the power of the Xbox Series X or Playstation 5 you question whether or not this is a real life game. There are 150 AI powered characters from reporters, to fans, and vendors. The realism is on a whole new level.
It’s also great to see NBA 2K21 expanding the WNBA experience allowing you to create your own fully customizable WNBA player. You’ll compete with 12 WNBA teams. Also there’s The W Online which has 3v3 MyPLAYER competition.
The soundtrack is huge as well with 350 tracks to listen to.
Specially for next-gen consoles you’ll get a crazy mode called The City. It’s like a MMO dedicated to basketball. It’s a living breathing city that only cares about that one thing. It’s really trippy to see such a detailed experience inside a basketball game. I do think this is where most die-hard fans will find themselves spending tons of hours playing.
NBA 2K21 expands the realm of basketball games to new heights making players feel more on the court than ever before.
