Space Raiders in Space

Space Raiders in Space

Platform: Xbox Series X
January 13, 2023
Space Raiders in Space is a wave defense roguelike based around 5 orders: Attack, Defend, Cower, Search, and Build. Command your almost competent crew to loot weapons and supplies, build defenses, and fight their way through the Bugpocalypse. Have your raiders scavenge materials from their surroundings and use them to design and build elaborate fortifications, hopefully keeping your crew a safe distance from the bugs' sharp and stabby parts. With over a dozen defensives, there are many build strategies to explore. Your crew is armed with enthusiasm and a bunch of weapons (assuming you have been looting), but not much intelligence. Issue commands to individuals or the group as a whole, then hope they know how to follow instructions. It's up to you to tell them when to search, what to build, how to fight, and more. Or else they'll all die horribly violent deaths, Probably that second thing.

At the close of the 20th century... A large-scale natural disaster struck the eastern area of a certain country. The disaster wiped out the financial sector and toppled high-rise buildings over a wide area, even as far as the main functions of the capital. This resulted in the loss of a staggering 158,000 lives. At the dawn of the 21st century... Conglomerate PROBE-NEXUS, commonly known as Probe, begins reconstruction efforts in the eastern area of said country. Probe relocates its own base of operations to the ruined sector and builds a massive city run by the corporation. Lavished with colossal capital and cutting-edge technology, the modern-day Babylon is made up of skyscrapers that put the old high-rises to shame, the biggest shopping mall in the world, and recreational facilities one might mistake for a theme park. This was the dazzling birth of a symbol for the new century. It became the most essential place on the planet and was christened Zone Prime. The Rumble Fish is a 2D fighting game. The arcade version was developed in 2004. The arcade version of The Rumble Fish 2 came out in 2005, introducing new game mechanics and characters. It gained popularity with its sleek 2D visuals powered by S.M.A. (Smooth Model Animation), fascinating characters and strategic gameplay using 2 types of gauges.

Far Cry 6: Lost Between Worlds

Far Cry 6: Lost Between Worlds

Platform: Xbox Series X
December 6, 2022
Lost Between Worlds is an expansion for Far Cry 6 that transports players to an otherworldly dimension full of fractured worlds called rifts, each a twisted slice of Yara full of surprises, dangers, and diverse gameplay challenges. Playing as Dani Rojas, players scramble down an active volcano in one rift, navigate a submerged version of Esperanza prowled by sharks in another, and race to stay ahead of a deadly lightning storm in a third, to name just a few. Along the way, they unlock new weapons and abilities as they fight crystalline enemies in their quest to collect lost shards and earn powerful gear that bring them closer to escape. Across multiple runs, players choose different paths from rift to rift and develop an uneasy alliance with Fai, the strange, sardonic artificial intelligence whose spacecraft created the rifts.
