Due to popular demand, I started including big-name games in my monthly game release lists. Looking at the November release calendar made me want to curl in the fetal position and die for the sheer scale that the list was going to be.
Let’s be honest, no one would read a list of 50 games, and any nice indie gems would get buried. I’m trying to move to weekly lists instead. I’m hoping the smaller number is more digestible for people, and it might be easier to garner excitement about games that are coming really soon.
On the plus side, you now get shoddy edited and sub-par voiced video compilations of these games! Yay! I’ve left the written version below the video.
SpellForce 3: Fallen God
Spellforce 3: Fallen God releases to Steam on November 3rd, 2020
The original Spellforce 3 is a real-time strategy, RPG hybrid, and Fallen God is a new stand-alone expansion for it. It features a new campaign and a new race. You can now take a break from being an internet Troll to manage an army of them in the game!
I haven’t played Spellforce 3, a glaring omission on my part, but I have played its predecessor, and the hybrid genre is neat. Most importantly, I’m happy to see the RTS genre still hanging on. Hopefully it will have a resurgence soon.
Kosmokrats releases to Steam on November 5th, 2020.
This one is a zero gravity, physics puzzle game. It’s narrated by Bill Nighy, not the science guy, the British actor. I’ve always found physics games interesting, and Kosmokrats looks fun.
You’re basically controlling a drone in zero gravity and attempting to push, pull and nudge space station pieces into place without exploding everything or smashing the cosmonauts. It looks humorous and there are apparently mini-games to look forward to.
Quantum Protocol releases to Steam on November 5th, 2020
Card playing Weebs rejoice, Quantum Protocol is a deck-building game connected to an anime style visual novel. The gameplay itself is centered on master hackers taking on malware. As a Netrunner LCG fan myself, (rest in peace dammit), I can dig it.
It looks like you can actually alter your deck mid-game which is a novel idea. I think the cards look neat too. It plays off of its hacker theme pretty well. If you’re interested, there is a demo on Steam.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered
I’m not a fan of racing games, and growing up, my dad hated video games. Well, look at me now! I sure showed him right? Right…? Anyway, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit was one of the few games he was willing to play with me.
For that reason, I don’t mind showing off the remaster. Basically, it’s a racing game from a simpler time…Actually, as I am putting this together, I just realized that it’s a remaster of the last generation version of Hot Pursuit. NOT the PlayStation 2 version I was thinking off. It’s too late to change it. God I’m old.
Time to Stop Time
Time to Stop Time releases to Steam on November 6th.
This game looks ridiculous in the best way. You play a time-traveling superhero who can stop time. The game looks like an action-packed first-person shooter, but it’s really more of a puzzle game I think.
You stop time, figure out the situation, and alter it, such as redirecting bullets. I’ve seen everything from wild west levels to modern warfare and all the way up to mechs and lightsabers. The concept is as clever as it is crazy, and I really hope it turns out to be a good game.
Dirt 5 is…a racing game! I think it’s called Dirt because of the tires, they spin and, they kick up Dirt? Look, I don’t know, it’s not a game for me, but I know it’s important to the racing crowd, and you know what? The game is gorgeous.
Dirt 5 is also a game that is supporting free next-gen upgrades when you buy it on current generation consoles, which is a big thumbs up from me.
Well I hope you found something to look forward to. You should check out last weeks game release list, though be warned that one is only in video form. If you want to support me, be sure to check out my fancy new creator store I mentioned earlier. My Kofi is still around too. I’m going to try to publish one of these lists every Friday, assuming the demand for them is there! Happy gaming!
