August 30th

Destroy All Humans 2 failed (PS5, XSX, PC)

You know if he destroy all humans games are your cup of b-movie tea. These games follow an angry alien trapped on earth, taking out his frustrations on unsuspecting humans who get in his way. Silly, uncomplicated fun. destroy all humans 2 it’s a 2006 game, so even with a fresh coat of paint, it can still show its age.

F1 2022 Manager (PS5, XSX, PC, PS4, XBO)

With F1 enjoying its most significant rise in popularity since the Schumacher era in the 1990s, thanks to Netflix drive to survive, there has been a flood of games hoping to capitalize. Many of these have been cheap mobile dairy cows. EA F1 22 has been a successful, if temperamental, racing simulator that allows players to live out their dream of driving one of these ultra-high-performance cars and make broad decisions about the future of the teams. F1 Manager removes driving from the equation entirely. Instead, this is a game about being a team boss or, in F1 terms, a team manager. Every decision, from the finances for the full year to updates on which team, race and tire strategy will focus on, and even which systems will be available to your drivers during a race, is up to you. Every move you make must translate into an advantage for your team, so that your drivers can take home podium places and constructors’ championship points. One for the min-maxers, for sure.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection (PS5, XSX, PC, NS, PS4, XBO)

Not so keen on churning out new games, Konami seems happy to mine their library of classic titles these days. Case in point: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collectiona Konami game suite TMNT apogee. Similar to your Castlevania collection, there are actually a surprising number of games in this pack. This is what you get:

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles* (Arcade)

Games with asterisks next to them also have online play. Eleven of these games have regional and Japanese versions included. Without a doubt, the most complete package of TMNT games ever released.

Tinykin (PS5, XSX, PC, NS, PS4, XBO)

tiny share a conceptual space with Pikmin. Both games are about a little astronaut stranded in a world he doesn’t understand, who turns a local color-coded beast of prey into an unstoppable and productive personal army. Like Pikmin, the different colored Tinykin can be used for different purposes. Blue Tinykin are conductive and can be tied together in a line to connect an electrical current. Purple Tinykin are very strong and can be used to lift and reposition heavy obstacles. Green Tinykin can be stacked to create a ladder. You get the idea. Instead of Nintendo doing something with the Pikmin franchise, I’m glad someone out there he continues to use his ideas to do something new.

September 1

Timesia (XSX, XBO)

This one has been available for a while on other platforms, but this week it’s coming to Xbox. The latest to jump into the crowded Soulslike genre, timesia is a dark fantasy action RPG in which you are a character named Corvus, who ‘wields the power of disease’. It all seems very Soulsy, but will it be comparable to FromSoft at its best? Find out on Game Pass later this week.

september 2

Fallen Legion Collection (PS5, XSX, PC, XBO)

would not be TWIG without a JRPG listed. Fallen Legion Collection combines rise to glory Y ghosts in one package. This will be the first outing for both games on PlayStation 5.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R (PS5, XSX, PC, NS, PS4, XBO)

I have never seen JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, so I don’t know what the hell is going on here. However, this trailer features a woman who lands a 20-punch combo on a man with her breasts and then hits him further with trash she found on the street. Make of all this what you want. I, for one, am terrified. This is a remake of a 2013 PS3 game and will be its first appearance on current-gen consoles.

Lego Fights (PS5, XSX, PC, NS, PS4, XBO)

everyone has a Smash Bros. clone suddenly. When did that trend start? In any case, lego fightsThe focus is to have you build your own fighter from scratch and take the battle to various platform-style levels. It definitely looks a little less complex than Smash Bros., which can make it a much more accessible entry point into the genre for younger gamers. This one started life on mobile platforms first and is now making the jump to consoles and PC.

The Last of Us Part I (PS5)

There is some back and forth around the value of the last part of us me as a package Most have played it before and we know how valuable it is to PlayStation as a brand. The game is a verified masterpiece, but it’s also almost ten years old. For this remaster, Naughty Dog has visually rebuilt the game to be more in line with the look of its sequel. Lots of new accessibility options have been added to help you further reflect your PS4 following. Naughty Dog promises that elements like combat have been toned down, and there have also been some refinements made to the game to help it feel more modern than the PS3 game it will always be at heart.

I guess the big question for gamers is: Do you have another The last of us play on you after all these years? Has it been long enough since you’ve played it that an expensive lick of next-gen paint entices you to play again? Let me know; I’m very curious about the audience’s intuition on this.
