Gaming 6 games That Caught Our Attention At Gamescom 2022

This week, PC Gamer’s Mollie Taylor and Phil Savage attended Gamescom in Cologne. They have already released previews for The Callisto Protocol, Homeworld 3, and Jagged Alliance 3. We’ll have to wait till they regain consciousness to figure out which games they are most enthusiastic about because they have seen many more than those—I saw some terrifying-looking schedules before they went.

This week, PC Gamer’s Mollie Taylor and Phil Savage attended Gamescom in Cologne. They have already released previews for The Callisto Protocol, Homeworld 3, and Jagged Alliance 3. We’ll have to wait till they regain consciousness to figure out which games they are most enthusiastic about because they have seen many more than those—I saw some terrifying-looking schedules before they went.

The majority of Gamescom’s announcements and reveals occurred earlier in the week, notably during Tuesday’s live stream, which was once again presented by Geoff Keighley, the host of the most videogame programs that he has hosted. Gamescom continues through this weekend.

If you missed any of Opening Night Live, you can watch it all here(opens in a new tab). It lasts for nearly two hours, and just so you know, the major announcement is simply the Dead Island 2 release date. There were several thrilling games at the exhibition, however, it’s not really a moment you need to see in context.

There were other shows as well, such as a new episode of the Future Games Show from our publisher. Here are the six games that interest us the most after watching all of the action this week. ( Here is the remainder of our coverage of Gamescom 2022. (opens in new tab).

A New RTS From The C&C Remastered Studio

RTS revival, according to real-time strategist Wes Fenlon. RTS resurgence! A few years ago, EA collaborated with Petroglyph Games, a tiny firm established by several of the former Westwood devs who worked on the original Command & Conquer and Red Alert, to create a very nice remastered compilation of those two games. Following that success, Petroglyph unveiled The Great War: Western Front, an RTS set during World War I.

Although it’s a little too brown for my tastes, I appreciate the idea of Petroglyph branching out beyond the confines of C&C into a more expansive realm of strategy. This statement on the Steam page resembles Total War: Remastered.

Bulwark: Falconeer Chronicles Looks So Cool

The settlement builder-upper, Chris Livingston There are times when a trailer will instantaneously press the endorphin release button in my brain. Airships? Settlements? tall castles perched on precipitous cliffs? All of those are true.

Although Bulwark, the sequel to the aerial combat game The Falconeer, looks wonderful, I’ve never played it. Create towns and fortifications on the summits of snow-capped mountains on an ocean world, hire commanders to unlock additional building possibilities, and repel aerial enemy assaults. My physique is equipped.

Pinnochio, But it’s Bloodborne

Tim Colp, He’s Bloodborne, though: I sometimes overlook the fact that Lies of P is a souls-like game that is very loosely (very loosely) based on Pinocchio. Without breaching the fourth wall, the trailer makes light of how ludicrous the idea is, and I appreciate that: After overcoming bizarre foes, an oddly handsome Pinocchio encounters his father, Geppetto, in a gloomy 19th-century France. It’s all so overtly Bloodborne that I now believe I must play it.

However, She’s Bloodborne by Lauren Morton: I suppose I should acknowledge that I am aware of Lies of P and have been eagerly anticipating it since it was introduced. So, I suppose the only thing that surprised me was that nobody dragged.

New Tales From The Borderlands, Old Telltale Staff

Editor for the New and Old Weekend, Jody Macgregor: In April, Gearbox said that Tales from the Borderlands will have a sequel, with the caveat that it would be developed internally. The original was fantastic because it deviated so much from typical Borderlands, with entirely unique gameplay and a cast of ordinary people to underscore the ridiculousness of the looter-environment shooter as viewed from below. It looked like a possible warning sign that the writers of Borderlands 3 were attempting to manage that kind of humor. (Though to be fair, the writing in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and the Borderlands 3 DLC also improved.)

However, Randy Pitchford, the creator of Gearbox, provided a statement alongside the Gamescom teaser for New Tales from the Borderlands.

This Offbeat Indie Detective Game Slays

Chris Livingston, a homicide detective I became fully hooked on the little demo for the independent detective game The Case of the Golden Idol. Click on the clues in the bizarre pixel art crime scene scenes to continue your investigation. It’s similar to Return of the Obra Dinn and Mad Libs since you need to identify everyone who was engaged in the crime and ascertain the specifics of the murder by dragging and dropping the words you gather into a scroll.

In total, there will be 12 homicides to look into, and oddly enough, they are all connected in some way. The complete game’s release date is unknown, but the demo is fantastic, and I can’t wait to continue playing it.
