God of War: Ragnarok 1.

God of War: Ragnarok

Platform: PlayStation 5
November 9, 2022
The freezing winds of Fimbulwinter have come to Midgard, making survival for Kratos, Atreus, and Mimir in the Norse wilds even more challenging than before. Kratos, still bearing the knowledge of his past mistakes, wants to spare Atreus the bloody lessons he learned from his conflict with gods. He wants to keep his son safe, above all, and their confrontation with Baldur has vindicated the belief that only tragedy will come from further entanglements with the Aesir. Together, Kratos and Atreus will have to make a choice about which path they will take. Whatever they choose will define the fate of all those living in the Nine Realms as Ragnarok approaches. Whatever your choice of combat strategy, the enemies that await in God of War Ragnarök will be ready. The realms have grown harsher, and a whole host of new creatures from across Norse mythology will test your skills. God of War Ragnarök will take you to the previously unreachable Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard - as well as to new areas from locations featured in the last game. Exploring the realms will take you everywhere from verdant, otherworldly jungles to intricate subterranean mining networks. This next installment in the series will bring you a more diverse, beautiful, and mysterious variety of locations than in any other God of War game.

Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song Remastered

Platform: PlayStation 5
December 1, 2022
In the long, long ago of 1992, Square Enix released the fantastic Romancing SaGa on the Super Famicon in Japan. The fourth 'SaGa' game, it revolutionized the series with its non-linear structure and innovative mechanics. 13 years later, a remake was released for the PlayStation 2 in Japan as "Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song" and later in North America as "Romancing Saga". This new version of the game was faithful to the original but featured impressive 3D visuals and some welcome features that made the adventure more approachable for new players. Now, 17 years after that, it's back again - and it's bigger and better than ever. The game now features remastered HD graphics, new quality of life features that make it easier and more convenient to play, and you can even expect some new elements too!

The country remains in a state of shock following the assassination of President Sheridan. You wake up, wounded and with amnesia, on a deserted beach on the east coast. The only clues as to your identity are a tattoo of the number XIII near your collarbone and a locker key. Even though your memory is failing, you discover that you have the reflexes of a highly trained professional fighter. You set off in search of your past, discovering that you played a role in the murder of the President of the United States of America, and revealing the most astounding conspiracy ever hatched in the country's history.
