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.
gaming isn't a hobby.. it's a lifestyle. (21 minutes ago)
I can't play VR. I have severe simulation sickness. (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Just stop with 'new hobby'. It makes you sound like a snob. I love gaming. I'm just tired of the rehash and playing it safe. (2 Hours ago)
Death Stranding will probably be more generic than you think. Yes the trailers are weird, but it'll probably just be a third-person survival (2 Hours ago)
you're never going to get a bunch of original game ideas these days. may i suggest VR though, it might be the game changer you're looking for. otherwise new hobby seems like your best bet. (3 Hours ago)
they have zombies...that's kind of where the comparisons start and end. it has more in common with last of us but then that's linear and more stealth then shooter. (3 Hours ago)
@droezelke: i'm pretty sure every game will feel like every other game when you think something like days gone is the same thing as dying light. lol (3 Hours ago)
