Darkest Dungeon II 1.0 Releases on Steam

After almost 2 years of Epic Games exclusivity, Darkest Dungeon II has finally released its 1.0 update on Steam. With a completely new playstyle and 3d art direction from the first game, fan reception has been somewhat mixed so far. Many are happy to see more from Red Hook studios and enjoy the Slay the Spire roguelite runs, while others have conflicting feelings about no longer having the same type of gameplay progression. After a few hours into the game myself, it feels like hard work was put into its creation, and deserves to be played through fully before a complete review. Check out the game on the Epic Games or Steam store page if you are interested in picking this up for yourself.

Any fans of Zelda will be well aware that Tears of the Kingdom is now out for everyone to enjoy. It is too early to give concrete fan reception, but Gamespot has already given it a 10/10 review which you can read by clicking here. The continuing trend of Zelda as an open-world adventure game continues with Tears of the Kingdom, seemingly improving greatly on the formula in many ways. This time it will also have you exploring many islands located hovering off the ground of Hyrule. Let us know what you hope to see in Tears of the Kingdom and we will be eagerly awaiting more reviews to come in.

In a recent tweet by Matthew Griffin, it has been revealed that the game's development is still in progress, and they are fully committed to delivering the perfect addition to the original Hollow Knight. The wait may be a little longer, but rest assured that the developers are putting their hearts into making Hollow Knight: Silksong the best it can be. Click here for more details.
