"Syberia 3" for Xbox One
A narrative, story-focused game, 'Syberia 3' is the latest (and possibly final) entry in the 'Syberia' franchise.
Syberia 3 is a narrative-heavy puzzle game. It's more focused on telling a story than presenting the player with challenges, but it's still a worthwhile adventure that differentiates itself from the first two games in the franchise. At for just $6, what do you have to lose?
"Cris Tales" for Nintendo Switch
Any fan of classic Japanese role-playing games owes it to themselves to check this out.
Cris Tales is a stylish love letter to Japanese RPGs, and it has everything you'd expect: powerful magic, incredible animation and a plot about time travel. I can see influences from Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger just from that description alone.
"Need for Speed: Heat" for Xbox One
It's "The Fast and the Furious" but with brighter colors.
When it comes to racing games, few are as intense as Need for Speed. The game is not only fast-paced and absolutely gorgeous to look at, but the vibrant colors pop off the screen. Race during the day for cash, or bolster your reputation with illegal street races at night. The choice is yours, but know there are consequences if you get caught during an after-hours event.
"This game is amazing. The gameplay is incredible, from just playing adventure mode, to racing online with friends. The graphics are super awesome, multi-platform cross-play–compatible," said one adjective-happy gamer.
"Hot Wheels Unleashed" for Nintendo Switch
It's all the fun of Hot Wheels in video game form.
Hot Wheels have always been fun to play with, but there's something about Hot Wheels Unleashed that brings the charm of the little toys to a brand-new level. The ability to rase and jump them through tracks made of household items feels decidedly nostalgic and will keep you hooked for hours.
"This game literally slaps so hard. I’m not even a big racing game guy, but this game is so well done. This is my favorite switch game since Zelda BOTW. If you’re thinking about it, just do it," one player said.
"Anno 1800 Standard Edition" for Xbox Series X
If "Civilization" and "Sim City" had a baby, it would be "Anno 1800."
If you're itching for an in-depth city builder, you can't find a better game than Anno 1800. Plan out huge cities and logistic networks as you expand your towns and settle new lands. You can dominate opponents through warfare or with your mercantile prowess. This is designed for console play, so it's not nearly as demanding as the PC version — but it's just as fun.
"I love games like this. The graphics are stunning, conversion from mouse and keyboard to controller is seamless and done extremely well. The gameplay will provide countless hours of fun. Brings me back to the days of Sierra games with games such as Pharaoh and Cleopatra. Highly recommended," one player said.
"The Callisto Protocol" for Xbox One
From the minds behind "Dead Space" comes a game that is guaranteed to leave you quaking in your space boots.
The Callisto Protocol was a highly anticipated game that a lot of people missed out on, but right now, it's 50% off. This is the perfect chance to try it out for yourself and have the pants scared off of you. Be warned: It's a gore-fest, not suitable for kids or those with weak constitutions.
One player said, "Great graphics, good storyline. If like Dead Space, you'll like this."
"Grand Theft Auto V" for PlayStation 4
The game that has captured players' attentions for thousands of hours, "Grand Theft Auto 5" is now over 50% off — a great price for diving into the franchise if you've never played it.
Grand Theft Auto V is a popular game, but take note: it's absolutely not for kids. It throws players into the criminal elements of a fictionalized city, letting you explore the seedy underside and even become a crime lord yourself.
"I fully understand that this game is now pushing 10 years old, but it's still a marvel. The upgrade to the graphics and smooth gameplay are definitely worth the upgraded version for the new-generation consoles. Although it doesn't fully make use of the consoles' power, given that it's an older game, it's still one of the cheapest options out there for PS5 games. If you haven't played in a while, or ever, give it a shot, especially if it's on sale," urged one player.
Explore the titular danger zone in an all-new way with this fun — and sometimes raunchy — romp through Pandora.
Borderlands is best known as a looter-shooter, but New Tales is a narrative-driven adventure that lets you dive deeper into the tales of your favorite characters. The choices you make will influence the story, and a series of branching paths means that each playthrough can be different. Right now this game is 60% off!
"As someone who is fairly new to trying the Borderlands games, I wasn't sure what I should expect," related an enlightened player. "After all, looter-shooters are not my usual preferred game style. That said, this game pleasantly surprised me, and the fact it included both Tales games was even better... It has a good sense of humor, fun to play and you don't have to be a FPS pro to enjoy either game."
"Star Ocean: The Divine Force" for PlayStation 5
Join Raymond and Leticia in a galaxy-spanning adventure in this action RPG.
I've played almost every Star Ocean title before this one, and The Divine Force is one of my favorites. Between the bombastic story and lovable characters, the game will suck you in. The new ability to fly around the map makes exploration more fun than ever before, and of course, there are tons of side quests and extra content to explore once you finish the main story.
Fans say this is a great comeback for the series: "Great game plot, game play and story. It’s reminiscent of the best Star Ocean games in the series."
"Spiritfarer" for PlayStation 4
Take on the role of a guide for the deceased in this gentle, charming game.
Spiritfarer is a cozy game about death. You take on the role of Stella, a girl who makes the idea of passing over as comfortable as possible. Ferry spirits around on your boat, fish for their favorite snacks (or hidden treasure) and so much more. But fair warning — this game can tug at the heartstrings.
"Halo: Infinite" for Xbox
The latest entry into the "Halo" franchise, 'Infinite' revolutionizes the way the multiplayer works and introduces a brand-new story and characters to love.
Ah, Halo: Infinite — simultaneously one of the most celebrated and scorned games in the franchise. While fans can't agree on what they think of it, one thing is for sure: Movement in this game feels smooth, and there's an array of new weapons to choose from and vehicles to drive.
One fan said, "Definitely the best Halo since Halo 3! ... If you take your time and do all side missions and such, playing in two- to three-hour increments, it took me almost five days to do everything in the campaign!"
