PCs, handhelds, mobile, console, indies, triple A, free-to-play — the gaming scene gets more diverse and difficult to follow by the day, but thankfully I’m here every week to guide you through what’s happening with games.
As always, 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, here are the games you need to know about this week…
This Week’s Strategy-RPG
The Banner Saga 2 (PC & Mac, April 19)
The Banner Saga was a strategy-RPG, which put you in command of a band of Vikings forging their way through a beautifully rendered Norse fantasy world. The Banner Saga 2 is more of the same, but that’s certainly not a bad thing. The choices you made in the first game continue to have impact in The Banner Saga 2, and this time around you’ll have even deeper, more difficult decisions to make. Here’s the game’s Steam page.
