Sam has been playing a lot of games from her backlog while trying not to buy too many new ones. Has she been succeeding on the challenges she set for herself? Let’s see how she did during the first three months of 2021.
Super Rare Games is partnering with Shiro Games for a physical Switch edition of Evoland: Legendary Edition. Pre-orders for the limited run will begin later this week.
Shiro Games’ history-tracing Evoland games are coming to consoles. Evoland and Evoland 2 are being bundled in a Legendary Edition set to release in early February.
Developers were once consumed by the need to push technological prowess as much as possible, but in recent years a smorgasbord of titles that evoke earlier generations has been created. We here tackle a hefty helping of this sort of RPG, using a lineup that varies wildly in style and quality.
The second Evoland tackles a great number of genres and issues in its many areas. One notion is tantalizingly never resolved though: where do other party members hide when they’re with the lead but not visible on screen, in his pocket? Mammoths must not get out much if they’re so hard to move.
Take a guided tour through certain aspects of RPG history, complete with genuine evil to slay and a world to save. Beware of aggressive local wildlife, though. Slash and cast to your heart’s content!
