Our videos of The Final Station

This afternoon, Gamersyde is going all retro 2D games, starting with The Final Station, which was released on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on August 30 - in North America at least. Despite the pixel art visuals that might not be engaging to some people, Do My Best Games' title is a surprisingly atmospheric and addictive experience, with some beautiful pixelated backgrounds on top of that. You play a train driver whose mission is to deliver a precious cargo which is supposed to help the army fight the strange virus that is turning people into shadowy monsters. The enemies in the game are quite reminiscent of Heart of Darkness, which is a good thing, as they are just as merciless and dark. The gameplay mechanics may be simple, but they work very well and it's hard to stop playing. The only minor problem we have with the game is that it's hard to read what the survivors you pick up are saying to each other when you're making sure the train is running properly.

Update: The Xbox One version will out tomorrow worldwide. There has been a slight delay for the PS4 version, but it's on Sony's end so it shouldn't be long.

    GriftGFX And he's frequently way more personal than calling his taste shitty. Give me a break. (1 minute ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: You have done this with me on several occasions. I see you do it to others. The reason I don't like posting in the shoutbox anymore is your attitude. (2 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Please.. this guy is dropping insults on me literally all the time. I don't need to show him patience. (3 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: I respect you. But you can be a dick at times. You started with the personal attack. There is no need for that. If anyone has a different opinion than you, you make it personal. (4 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX ayy.. that's like.. a string of random words meant to be insulting, right? (1 Hour ago)

    nostradamus keep shoving these tard amalgations into your hole, it won't fill your void, lmao. effin' hell, ayy. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The deck building aspect of it is more of an immediate cause for concern. Customization really messes with the predictability of encounters, which can be a bad thing in this context. (1 Hour ago)
