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 Anime Game
One Piece: Unlimited World Red (PS3, PS Vita & Wii U, July 8th)
I don’t recommend too many licensed anime games, because most of them aren’t very good, but the One Piece games are generally pretty solid RPG/Brawlers. One Piece: Unlimited World Red in particular has been picking up some decent reviews, so it might be worth a spin.
This Week’s Retro-Styled Horror Game
Claire (PC, July 7th)
Miss classic Silent Hill? Well, Claire is basically Silent Hill done in a retro 8/16-bit style. As the titular Claire, you explore a nightmare filled world with flashlights and lighters being your only weapon against the growing darkness. Looks like good creepy fun. Here’s Claire’s Steam page.
