PS Store Sale: 500+ PS5 & PS4 games on sale for less than €20
Persona 5 – Gameplay Trailer shows us the Palaces that we have to infiltrate
Persona 5 can probably be called one of the best JRPGs ever. As usual in the series, we play a Japanese high school student and experience his everyday life, from classes to small part-time jobs. At night, however, we use our special abilities to travel into the so-called Metaverse, through which we can penetrate the subconscious of Tokyo residents. The imaginatively designed environments and the excellently told story are among the greatest strengths of Persona 5. But the turn-based battles are also surprisingly fast and action-packed, since each action type has its own button on the controller and complicated menus are no longer necessary.

Cult of the Lamb
Cult of the Lamb lets you found a demonic cult as a cute lamb
Cult of the Lamb is one of the big indie surprise hits of the last year. It is a mixture of a life and farming simulation in the style of Animal Crossing or Stardew Valley and a roguelike dungeon crawler like The Binding of Isaac or Hades. This combination is unusual enough on its own, but what makes it most special is the scenario: we play a lamb who leads a dark cult inspired by the horror stories of HP Lovecraft. Accordingly, despite its cute look at first glance, the game contains many extremely macabre gameplay elements, up to the point of sacrificing loyal followers.

A way out
A Way Out – Co-op action game test video: An extraordinary experience
A Way Out is a pure co-op game where you play either online or locally in pairs. You take on the role of two criminals who want to escape from prison together and also experience one or the other adventure that we don’t want to spoil at this point. In terms of game mechanics, it is a largely simple but well-functioning mixture of action, puzzles and sneaking, which draws its charm from the cooperation. But the most spectacular thing about A Way Out is the staging, because the events are presented to us in a split screen that constantly adapts to the situation, which provides many cinematic moments.

Little Nightmares 2
Little Nightmares 2 – Test video for the horror hit
Like its predecessor, Little Nightmares 2 captivates at first glance with its pretty and cute, yet dark graphic style reminiscent of Tim Burton films like Nightmare Before Christmas. Compared to Part 1 of the horror game, however, we are offered a lot more variety this time, because Little Nightmares 2 is divided into five very different chapters in which we traverse, among other things, a dark forest and a hospital full of creepy dolls. At the gameplay mix of stealth, exploration. Riddles and some platforming have changed little, but at least this time we can defend ourselves against our enemies at least in some places with force of arms.

BioShock: The Collection
BioShock: The Collection – PS3 Original vs. Remaster in graphics comparison
With the BioShock Collection you get the three great first person shooters BioShock 1 and 2 as well as BioShock Infinite in one package, in a technically improved remastered version including all single player DLCs. All three parts are not least famous for their great designed game worlds. In parts 1 and 2 we travel to the underwater city of Rapture, which was planned as a paradise, but has long since turned into a dark nightmare. BioShock Infinite, on the other hand, takes us to a city above the clouds, which we can first admire in all its splendor before witnessing its collapse. The story DLCs for BioShock Infinite offer an exciting connection with the predecessors.

Inscryption – One of the best PC games of 2021 is coming to PS4 and PS5
Inscryption is the latest stroke of genius from Daniel Mullins (Pony Island, The Hex). It is a creative mixture of trading card game, adventure and horror game. The card game works very similar to what you are used to from other genre representatives such as Magic: The Gathering or Hearthstone: We use cards from our deck to summon creatures and trigger spells. By winning, we earn more cards, which we use to improve our deck. Between games, however, we can also get up and explore the space where we seem to be being held captive by our opponent. Here we encounter puzzles that we should solve as soon as possible if we want to survive.

Unravel Yarny Bundle
Unravel – Test video for woolly puzzle fun
With the Unravel Yarny Bundle you get the first part and Unravel Two together for only €5.99. Both games are pretty puzzle platformers that score particularly well with their cute protagonist, the ball of wool character Yarny. Yarny uses his own strings to overcome obstacles and solve puzzles as he journeys through beautiful landscapes. In the second part, he is no longer alone, but is accompanied by a second ball of yarn and has to work with him to advance. You can either switch back and forth between the two figures in single player or you can play in co-op for two.

inFamous Second Son
inFamous: Second Son – PS4 superhero spectacle review video
inFamous Second Son was one of the first big open-world hits of the PS4 generation. Even though that was of course a while ago, the superhero game is still worth a look today, especially at the low price of €9.99. We play as Native American Delsin Rowe, who discovers that not only does he have superpowers, but he can also steal the powers of others. This makes him an interesting research subject for the head of the DUP agency, who even attacks Delsin’s tribe. Now we can either use his powers for bloody revenge or fight for good. Depending on how we decide, not only the story changes, but also the behavior of the population towards us.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut
Disco Elysium: New trailer for the Final Cut version
Disco Elysium is one of the biggest critics’ favorites of the last few years, the average rating on OpenCritic is a proud 92 points. In the RPG we play a shabby detective who has to solve serious crimes in the world of Elysium. There are always a lot of different approaches open to us, and success also depends on how we have distributed the skill points in the complex character development. In addition to the playful freedom, the excellently written narrative texts and dialogues are one of the most important reasons for the high ratings. The Final Cut offers additional missions, a complete, if only English, dubbing of the dialogues and a lot of detail improvements.

Launch trailer for Blasphemous shows the hard-hitting 2D souls
Blasphemous is a 2D action game that is reminiscent of Dark Souls, both in terms of its challenging level of difficulty and its gloomy graphic style. You play as the sole survivor of a massacre caught in the cycle of death and rebirth, tasked with ridding the land of Cvstodia of its curse. The art design was inspired by the Spanish Inquisition and accordingly not only uses a lot of religious symbolism, but also comes up with many unusual instruments of torture. The design of the partly grotesquely disfigured opponents is also very creative. You only have a chance against the often gigantic bosses if you have mastered the combo system.
