Xbox Live Recommendations For June 27, 2017

Xbox Live recommendations for June 30th 2017

Microsoft is doing a Summer sale (starting on the 30th and ending on the 10th of July), and there are some pretty good ones in there. People have probably already decided whether they want the big sellers like Gears of War and Dark Souls III, so my list focuses primarily on games that I’m guessing most people haven’t checked out, or may not even have heard of. Below is a brief blurb for each, and a link to a review (where possible) that should help with decisions.


Narcosis Review

Ghosts In The Shellfish

HIGH Top-notch tension in its opening hour.

LOW Dying ten times while trying to navigate one section.

WTF Should it really take this many stabs to kill a squid!?


This Is Not A Review: Everspace

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Everspace, developed and published by Rockfish Games.


The Inner World Review

Pooh + Burton + Point-And-Click

HIGH The cutest voices and soundscape, and the animations are adorable.

LOW Trying to make point-and-click work with Xbox bumpers.

WTF Pairing a naked monk and a dirty barmaid to make a baby’s onesie.
