Deus Ex is a series that is near and dear to my heart after playing the first one many years ago on PC. However, I did not love the reboot Human Revolution, as I felt it controlled really old. Now with Mankind Divided, I’m curious to give it ago and see how I feel. Batman: The Telltale Series is another game I’ve been looking forward to giving a try. I like Batman, I like Telltale, and I’ve heard nothing but great things from year one. Looking forward to next Tuesday.
Sacred 3 is a diablo-esque multiplayer title that released on PS3. Eden thought the game was good. The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 looks to be a fun point and click adventure on PS3, Tracey reviewed it and liked it alot. Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness looks to be a fun visual novel. Currently the blog post lists it as Cross-buy with PS4, however, I can’t find anything in the store to support it being a cross-buy game. Guess we will find out on Tuesday. Finally, we have Uncanny Valley which Eden thought was a very cool horror game.
