Other than Killer Queen Black will check out all the games shown. Already got a free pre-order of Outer Wild's through a Mixpot anyway. Probably most interested in Outer Wild’s, Void Bastards, Afterparty & Blazing Chrome. Operencia out on Friday.
Finished this months quests today, a nice bunch of points.
Operencia tells a wonderful story derived from Central European folklore, mythology, and history, and it does so with unwavering confidence in its makeup. Companion characters are funny, and the banter between them makes for a fun experience that's not without its heartfelt moments. In terms of combat, the strategizing is so engaging that you'll likely end up charging rat warriors headfirst instead of hopelessly attempting to avoid bumping into them. Best of all, though, this world is so stunning that you'll just look at the trees, the water, the rocks--everything. It’s a shame that some of the puzzle solutions are needlessly frustrating and present significant obstacles in getting through the story, but aside from that Operencia provides a truly special experience.
Operencia transports you somewhere far, far away, and once you get there, you'll probably want to stay a while.
I read somewhere (maybe on the reviews in the Store) that Operencia has been causing motion sickness to those susceptible to it. It’s kind of putting me off starting it. I don’t want to like the game only to find I can’t proceed without vom-ness.
Good morning, Morgan. Prey joins the Xbox Game Pass library tomorrow, taking you from the comfort of your home to the treacherous depths of space.
