These are always fun, and can make you want to try new things.
I have tried out two new (ish) games lately, the first being Dead By Daylight.
Dead By Daylight is … actually kinda brilliant. Outside of the perk system, which is horrendous, it is just so … easy to play. Firstly it is a asynchronous game of killer vs survivor. The killer is alone, and is hunting the survivors, he wants to kill them all and he does it by hitting a survivor with his weapon 2 times, at which point the survivor is floored, and the killer then picks up the survivor to hang them from a nearby meat hook. (It is as grusome as it sounds!) When the killer has done this to the 4 survivors, the game is over.
The survivors wants to escape, and to escape, they have to fix 4 out of X amount of generators which are randomly placed around the map. After they have done this, they can open the door to the map to escape.
And while doing all this, both killer and survivor has the same controller scheme, which basically is - and this is the brilliant part - 4 buttons. Left mouse click, shift, control and space (Or, LT, LB, RB and X/A on a controller). This makes understanding the mechanics of the game so extremely easy, and in a somewhat competative game, this is something I have been longing for for a long time (which is also why I hope FSFG is going to be great!).
There are other things you can do within the game that makes it more interesting, like when the killer has picked you off the ground, you can wiggle out of his grip and run away, as the killer you can see “tracks” from survivors who actively run - the tracks lasts for about 10 seconds - you can use a flashlight to blind the killer, which gives you 2-5 seconds of running away, the killer can use traps to trap his opponents.
The next best thing about this game, is how cheap it is. I would guess it is around 12$ to get, so it is well worth the money. So a definitive “should get” for anyone who enjoys asynchronous play, slasher movies from the 80s and 90s, and tense gameplay.
The other game I have been playing lately, is Battlerite. Battlerite is a moba, without all the things that makes mobas boring, but with all the things taht makes mobas fun. So no leveling, no useless creepfarming, just you, a teammate against 2 other heroes with abilities that are ready to use, in a close quarters arena. It is pretty fun, and the controls feels amazing, and it reminds me of a fighting game. It even has timed rounds and plays as a best of five set. It is also very cheap to get.
So what have you played lately, and would you reccomend it?
