Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you. Each week I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, let’s get to it…
This Week’s Action RPGSubscribe to UPROXX
Sacred 3 (PC, Xbox 360 & PS3, Aug. 5th)
The Sacred series of hack ‘n’ slash action RPGs returns this week with Sacred 3. This one should serve up more demon slicing goodness for up to four players both on and offline.
This Week’s Roguelike
Road Not Taken (PC & PS4, Aug. 5th)
Road Not Taken is a new Roguelike RPG featuring a super adorable art style. The focus of the game is more on puzzle solving than battling — the little ranger you play as isn’t so good at direct conflict, so avoiding enemies is the name of the game. Here’s the game’s Steam page.
This Week’s Adventure Game
Mind: Path to Thalamus (PC, Aug. 5th)
Mind: Path to Thalamus throws you into a gorgeous surreal world, in which you have the power to alter the weather, seasons and humidity. You have to use those powers to solve puzzles as well as the large puzzle of whose mind you’re exploring anyways. Here’s the game’s Steam page.
