Magilou from Tales of Berseria

Tales of Berseria is the seventeenth iteration of the Tales series and a prequel to Tales of Zestiria, though set in the distant past. It brings with it a cast of surprisingly lovable misfits, an exciting combo-based combat system, and the same sort of narrative focus as its predecessors. The one big difference is that Berseria's storyline is far darker, with characters often acting out of self-interest, which is a fairly rare and rather intriguing take on the RPG genre.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in action I've prepared a decently lengthy gameplay video going over both the story and combat. And don't worry about spoilers as I've chosen a mission that mostly revolves around obvious goals and plot-irrelevant character interactions. With that said, here's the video:

Shadow Tactics, in the most basic terms, is a Commandos inspired strategy game that's all about sneaking around, taking out enemies with carefully concocted plans, and then desperately trying to fix the resulting mess once those plans inevitably fail.

And since that description doesn't really do it justice, allow me to show you a rather lengthy gameplay video featuring the very first level from Shadow Tactics. So if you're interested in seeing what Shadow Tactics is really all about, have a look:

Killing Floor 2's flamethrower is a devastating weapon in action

In the most basic terms, Killing Floor 2 is a co-op shooter that pits you against ever-increasing waves of mutants, monsters, and other such nasties. While that alone might not sound like much, Killing Floor 2 distinguishes itself from the rest by having an extremely satisfying arsenal of weaponry... of which my favorite is the good ol' flamethrower.

So if you're interested in seeing what Killing Floor 2 is all about, and more importantly how awesome the flamethrower looks, I've prepared a brief gameplay video showcasing just that. Have a look:

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game Ciri artwork

The standalone version of Gwent is a card game that focuses heavily on resource management, card advantage, and careful planning in order to ensure that your own tricks don't end up working against you. And unlike most other card games, in Gwent you're only allowed to play one card per turn, so there is always a chance to counter the opponent's strategy before it actually grows to fruition, but also to bait them into a devastating trap!

While this might sound incredibly complex right now, Gwent is at its core a rather simple game, though there is definitely plenty of avenues to outplay your opponents. In order to show you what exactly Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is all about I've created a simple video showcasing a single match with each of the four currently available factions. So if you're interested in what the standalone version of Gwent looks like, here you go:

To most Dark Souls players the wretched swamps of Blighttown are one of the worst areas in the known universe. I can certainly understand why given that its easy to fall into pits, get poisoned by voodoo midgets, or just plain ol' ravaged by hellhounds.

Even with all of that considered, however, I still consider Blighttown to be one of the best designed areas in all of Dark Souls. There are plenty of secrets to uncover, difficult enemies to test your skills against, and best of all, a whole bunch of creative ways to dispatch said enemies. It is a challenging area, that's for sure, but as you'll see in the video below it is also an incredibly fun one as well:

Shadow Warrior 2 shotgun gameplay

Shadow Warrior 2 is one of the most ridiculous FPS games I've played in quite a while, a fact that shouldn't come as much of a surprise if you've ever laid your hands on the series. And as you would expect, the same brand of 'humor' is back once again to plague the world with endless wang puns!

Since its hard to judge whether Shadow Warrior 2 is any good from trailers alone, I've prepared a ~15 minute gameplay video showcasing pretty much everything you can do during an average mission. Have a look, and I hope you don't mind chainsaws or wast quantities of explosions:

World of Warcraft: Legion Demon Hunter warglaives

Mythic Keystone Dungeons are the hardest form of 5-man content currently present in World of Warcraft: Legion. Their scaling difficulty is more than enough to provide a challenge for even the most seasoned of veterans, but at the same time they offer some of the best gear you can possibly obtain, so its definitely worth giving them a shot! 

If you're wondering what these Mythic Keystone Dungeons might look like, and whether this is something you can even attempt yourself, here's brief gameplay video that showcases how me and my group managed to demolish Maw of Souls so hard we ended up with three chests at the end. In other words, don't worry about the difficulty and just throw yourself in there - its pretty fun! Anyway, here's the video:

Battlerite's Pyro and Croak characters artwork

Battlerite is a spiritual successor to the once excellent Bloodline Champions, and as such it contains the same diverse set of characters, the same intricate balance, and most importantly, the same skill-based combat system. While it does feature the same gameplay mechanics as Bloodline Champions, Battlerite is not a boring ol' clone as it brings with it numerous improvements to both the gameplay and the visuals.

In order to give you an idea of what Battlerite is all about I've prepared a brief gameplay video showcasing two matches with my favorite character - Croak, the Ranid Assassin. Expect to see plenty of poison, jumping around, and a whole bunch of opponents running for their lives! Have a look:

Sorcery! Part 4 screenshow showcasing the citadel

Sorcery! Part 4 - The Crown of Kings is a story focused adventure/RPG with an intriguing narrative, some unique and interesting characters that can't be described in a single cliche, a world that consistently follows its own rules, and most importantly, the ability to make a personal impact on the story.

Since there aren't that many games like it, especially not these days, I've made a brief gameplay video to show you what exactly Sorcery! is all about. The footage you'll be watching is the first 20 minutes from The Crown of Kings, so don't worry too much about spoilers as this is only a tiny slice of the entire game. Here's the video:

Stardust Galaxy Warriors character screenshot from up close

Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax might have a completely ridiculous name, but behind it hides a rather impressive shoot 'em up. It features numerous weapons to choose from, five playable ships that you can either pilot solo or in local co-op, lovely backgrounds to look at as you blow away thousands of aliens, and most importantly, some kick ass music!

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in action, well, wonder no more as I've prepared a brief gameplay video to show you exactly that. The footage below is from one of the challenge modes, as such its a bit different from the campaign itself, but it should still give you a general idea of what to expect from Stardust Galaxy Warriors.
