7 Days to Die (PS4, Xbox One)
The market for post-apocalyptic games is a bit crowded right now, but there’s always some quality releases that keep the genre intact. Telltale Games is going the publishing route right now and their 1st release is one of those games. 7 Days to Die is a survival RPG that challenges you to survive in a world ravaged by the undead. In order to thrive in such a violent world, you’ll need to develop your own fortress and defend it with all manners of traps. You won’t have to take on all those zombies alone, though. There’s a 2-player offline and online mode, so building and fighting can be a fun endeavor with an ally. 7 Days to Die provides another great game that focuses on survival instincts.
God Eater: Resurrection (PS4, PS Vita)
Bandai Namco has been giving owners of Sony’s consoles a wide variety of great titles that fill the role of other popular games. Pokemon fans got to fulfill their dreams of monster collecting/battling with Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. And now, Monster Hunter fanatics will get to play a game that’s similar to its play style. That game is a title that was once an Japanese exclusive: God Eater: Resurrection. This console remake of God Eater Burst refines its behemoth battling gameplay with balance changes. One of the newest features is the “Predator Style,” which adds an extra ability to the “Devour” skill. You can go ahead and pre-order the August 30th launch of God Eater 2: Rage Burst and automatically get a digital code for God Eater: Resurrection, if you’d like.
