I’m really looking forward to playing Knack again on my PS4 Pro- I borrowed it the first time I played it, so now it can be permanently added to my collection – the game is legitimately tough to 100%! You can check out what I think of the game right here. RiME seems almost Zelda/ICO inspired, so I am obviously interested in playing it.
Spelunker HD seems like an interesting title, similar to Spelunky I think. Mugen Souls Z looks like an interesting RPG, which EdEN enjoyed. Exiles End looks like an interesting Metroidvania with 80’s action movie elements built in. EdEN liked the game upon its release. Finally, Grand Kingdom is an interesting tactile RPG, which Tracey really enjoyed! Check some of these titles out!
