In One Piece Odyssey, players control all the 9 characters, each of whom has their own unique abilities which the players must use to their advantage while fighting the monsters. Besides the character abilities, One Piece Odyssey’s combat mechanics also stay true to the original source.

To hype things up, the game also incorporates a “Dramatic Scene” gameplay element that creates random and unexpected situations during battles, such as Sanji being distracted by women. Players must then re-evaluate their strategies and progress accordingly.

Scheduled to be released on September 21, 2023, Eternights bags the third place on our list. Developed by the visionary minds behind Studio Sai, Eternigths is all set to deliver a bone-chilling gameplay experience unlike any other on PC, PS4, and PS5.

Eternights take place in a dark post-apocalyptic world destroyed by an anti-aging drug that mutates people into cannibal monsters.

While Eternights is a top-notch action game, it’s also highly sim-driven where players get to date and romance 5 different beautiful characters. How exactly the story unfolds is totally up to the players. While you can build relations, you can also ruin them. Consequently, this sim nature of the game allows for a whole more immersive gameplay experience.

As seen above, scavenging, dungeon crawling, and dating are the core concepts in Eternights. The game is played in a branching narrative format, with players making choices that will affect the story and the relationships between the characters. The combat system is a mix of real-time action and turn-based strategy, with players using a variety of weapons and abilities to defeat their foes.

Can you bear to forge lasting relations while struggling every day to live for one more day in Eternights?



Star Ocean: The Second Story R (2023)

Star Ocean is a name that many are familiar with as it was part of the original JRPG titles that made their way to the West and established the genre as a classic. Among them were absolute gems like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and last but certainly not the least Star Ocean. Specifically Star Ocean: The Second Story for the original PlayStation. While it was beloved by fans the game lacked the majority of the original content thought up for the game, causing it to have major gaps and plot holes. This would have remained the case were it not for the upcoming remake of the game which not only adds in the cut content but also recreates the game in a whole new engine with new graphics and effects. The plot of the game centers around Claude C. Kenni a mysterious soldier who is transported to a distant and foreign plant where he meets up with Rena Lanford a local village girl with mysterious powers and an even more mysterious past. Together they will set off on an adventure that will unveil a plan set into motion hundreds of years ago, by forces beyond their comprehension. Along this adventure, they will meet new allies and fight foes who will go to any length to stop our adventurers.

Star Ocean Second Story R is a complex tale with many different moving parts and hence is a story that delves into quite mature topics that help set it apart from the rest of its peers. Combat on the other hand was always a critique of the original game, and it seems the remake has finally fixed it by following the examples set by the newer games of the series. Combat is action-oriented and now with all new leveling and skill management players can easily focus on taking down the enemy rather than micro-managing their party. It also helps that the game will now be on multiple different platforms such as Windows, PlayStation, and Nintendo meaning it can take advantage of these system's specialties to make the game even better. So are you ready to brave the unknown in this accurate retelling of a classic? Find out as the game drops 2nd of November 2023.

Disgaea is a series that brings forth different emotions from multiple gamers, because for some it is a great CRPG, while others praise its on-point humor and deconstruction of JRPG stereotypes. But among them all one thing will be unanimous, the game is one of a kind, a tradition that is carried forward by the latest entry into this beloved series called Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless. Set in a completely new part of the Netherworld based on old Edo period Japan the game focuses on deconstructing the stereotypes of samurais and their code of honour the Bushido. Our main character is a ruffian who will use any trick in the book to win and is not above using honor to make his foes lower their guard, whereas our other main lead is a fanatic believer in the Bushido and believes there is nothing better than it. The story as in all games before it is a perfect blend of humor, emotional moments, and blood-pumping action scenes, making it a must-play for fans of the series.
