Sunday Update (January 25, 2015)

Hey gamers! This week, I’ll be reviewing three games: Grim Fandango Remastered on the PS4 and both Dying Light and Life is Strange: Episode 1 on the PC. I’ve never played Grim Fandango before, but as a fan of Tim Schafer’s work, I’m thoroughly looking forward to playing this widely-acclaimed, classic adventure game.

I’m also excited to see what Dying Light brings to the already saturated zombie survival genre. With its elements of parkour and survival in an open world environment, this game holds a lot of promise. But, it also holds the spectre of becoming another Brink looming over it.

Last on the list is an episodic adventure game called Life is Strange. The first episode hits retail on Friday and I’m intrigued to see how its indie movie charm and mystical time travel element will blend, especially in regards to gameplay.

Cheers!
