AFK Today 8/4/2023


Happy Friday, my friends! This week we got some new releases to talk about! If you’re a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, then you have to check out Baldur’s Gate 3! This D&D inspired RPG is sure to leave a mark on fans of the genre and of video games in general. On the other side of the fantasy spectrum, Aliens: Dark Descent was also released. Make sure to check this game out if you’re a fan of the original movies or want to play a horror RTS shooter to sink some hours in this weekend. Lastly, we got a new refresh of games for the PlayStation monthly games. Stay tuned next week for some more gaming news!

Reaching nearly half a million concurrent players on launch day is very impressive. The turn-based D&D-inspired RPG is already getting some amazing reviews, while also releasing with no paid micro-transactions and the normal $60 price tag. It is still a bit early to give any in-depth reviews on our end, but we do see that a majority of reviewers have already been giving the game glowing praise. Definitely go check out this game if you the RPG genre is of interest to you, and we will be bringing you more updates on this game in the coming months.


Aliens: Dark Descent Out Now

We didn’t forget about this game, which released late June, and has been a great success for the Alien gaming brand. As an unforgiving horror RTS shooter that prioritizes stealth and strategy, it has been a breath of fresh air in the genre and many critics have been giving glowing praise. Players have been saying it is quite unforgiving, and you will probably find yourself save-scumming when your team gets wiped. High stress strategy games are always rewarding to players willing to push through the difficulty, and the community is saying great things about Dark Descent, so it is worth buying in our eyes. It’s good to see Alien return to the gaming scene with how much great potential it has in the horror genre, just like how Alien Isolation turned out to be so amazing.
