There’s no doubt. This Christmas hardly feels like Christmas, given the kind of year that 2020 has been. Many of us, won’t be seeing our families, exchanging gifts or taking part in much holiday cheer. Videogames have been an incredible boon this year, and will continue to be one over the next several months. Here are 6 new games releasing before Christmas that might help keep you company during this period of isolation.
The onslaught of the season’s heaviest hitters is mostly over, and now we enter a quieter period for a little awhile. But that’s okay. Great games release every week, but are often lost beneath larger shadows. Here are 7 games releasing this week you might be interested in, assuming you can pull yourself away from CyberPunk. I’m a bit behind on a few things, so this list will a little brief compared to usual.
Minions of Mordak is a one versus many board game designed by James Van Niekerk and published by Skybound Games. I have the deluxe version, which comes with a couple of features exclusive to backers. For that reason, I will not factor those features into this review. You can pre-order Minions of Mordak from Valor & Villainy
Once again, I have found more than 10 worthwhile games releasing in one week, but for the sake of brevity and my own sanity, I’ve chosen to feature just 10 of them. Don’t fret, I’ve still included a small compilation of all the others at the end of the article and video.
People think I’m crazy, but despite being called the perfect video game, I don’t actually like Tetris. There’s no puzzle game category on my website because when taken alone puzzles aren’t something I generally enjoy. A Tetris inspired deck building rogue-lite, on the other hand? Now you’re speaking my language, and Tetrogue Dragons is exactly that.
The opening hours of Startup Panic were a bit surreal, painful, and interesting to experience as a lone self-employed Content Creator. It accurately represented the early days of my website. Alone in my house and slaving away to create something when nobody knew or cared who I was.
