August 2022 – The best game releases

As usual, in the summer months you have to “sew” a little while looking for the right number of interesting premieres. This year, as well as the previous one, got us used to the fact that they can make up for the quantity in terms of quality. New editions of old games too. And so, the biggest hit of August is actually Spider-Man coming after four years of rocking on PlayStation, on PC. He is accompanied by really good news like a quiet hit Cult of the Lambor a big (well, it turns out) return Saints Row. Strategy fans will finally run their own college in Two Point Campusand those who need a solid injection of Japanese, neon atmosphere will be able to spend time with Soul Hackers 2 or Dusk Diver 2. The whole picture will be completed by a collection of classic games with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Honestly – it’s very okay. There is also a lot more variety than we might expect. So once you take off your straw hat and sit in front of the screen, look towards the novelty.

Two Point Campus – August 9

Very well received Two Point Hospital had to bear fruit in the construction of a new series of economic and strategic games. Former employees of the famous Bullfrog studio, they know their stuff very well, because they created it 25 years ago Theme Hospital. Now they are moving to a new area, allowing us to create the best – as the title suggests – campus in the world. Supporting learning and academic life by taking care of the development of staff, building, equipment and, of course, their proper arrangement and supervision, are one of the many challenges that will be waiting for us here. Supporting student initiatives and enabling students to develop (apparently everyone who comes under our thatch has a unique character) is our goal here, as well as climbing in the rankings. They are beautiful principles, and how different from what awaits us in reality. So let’s have fun virtually!

Arcade Paradise – August 11

Here’s a game in which the protagonist decides to turn the family self-service laundry into… a fantastic saloon with vending machines! But before he can do that, it will take some time – after all, acquiring more machines is not easy! It’s 1993 and we are faced with the task of creating the most awesome place of its kind in the area. It’s actually a great way to create an interesting envelope (and add to the styling of the simulators) around a collection of 35 games that refer to the great times of the Arcade machines. Because Arcade Paradise in a way, it is a simulator of a certain era, told with the help of gameplay solutions that are still close to us today. It looks really interesting – may it not be lost in the stream of this year’s premieres.

  • Platforms: PC (PLN 72.00), PS4, PS5 (PLN 89.00), XOne, Xbox Series (PLN 89.00),

  • Minimum hardware requirements: Intel Core i3, 2 GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 660 graphics

  • Recommended hardware requirements: unconfirmed

Cult of the Lamb – August 11

Cult of the Lamb promises to be truly unique. It is a parody of several extreme themes – building a community and a wonderful town, marrying macabre, Satanism and fighting monsters here. Everything is served with a feeling reminiscent of the craziest cartoons there is Adventure Time if Gravity Falls. This is a funny satire; refreshing the reasons why we’re once again venturing into the dangerous randomly generated dungeons. It is all about strengthening our worship in the land of false prophets – and strength and persuasion will also come in handy. If then zeldowata structure combined with a croissant and a new look at Stardew Valley sounds encouraging to you, it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on this title. The Devolver Digital (publisher) tag also makes us pay special attention to it.

  • Recommended hardware requirements: Intel Core i5-3740, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics

Spider-Man Remastered – August 12

The time has come – another strong flagship from PlayStation is coming to Steam! new version Spider-Man it’s obviously cranked up by a few technical fireworks, but it’s really just a slight refreshment. The game Insomniac is so fantastic (we reviewed it) that it does not need a big rebuild. It is a great demonstration of how modern high-budget games can look like, how important is a satisfactory model of movement and how comics should be adapted to this medium. Spider-Man is a unique, closed story that does not need to be watched on any movie. It’s a fun-filled web adventure that does almost everything. Manhattan looks great than ever, and character development and a great script complete the image of a must-have game.

  • Type: Action, Adventure

  • Platforms: PC (PLN 299.00)

  • Minimum hardware requirements: Intel Core i3-4160, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 950 graphics

  • Recommended hardware requirements: Intel Core i5-4670, 16 GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics

Saints Row – August 23

It will be a very difficult comeback. Saints Row lost momentum long ago. The mega popularity of the unique third part and the good ranges of the crazy “four” mean nothing today. That’s why the new story about the purple gang of Saints is trying to hit a new demographic. Her stars are young people in tight jeans raised on the Internet. Can it be combined with mass extermination of members of other gangs, assaults and pervasive (exaggerated, but still) violence? May it be, because what was most important in Saints Row were only revealed to players when they reached for a pad and realized that all these minor differences in relation to GTA (to which it naturally compares SR) create something interesting and very original. There was also goofy humor, which we haven’t seen in the trailers so far.

  • Type: Open world, shootout

  • Platforms: PC (PLN 269.00), PS4, PS5 (PLN 239.00), XOne, Xbox Series (PLN 239.00)

  • Minimum hardware requirements: unconfirmed

  • Recommended hardware requirements: unconfirmed

Soul Hackers 2 – August 26

When I think about the big surprises in the gaming industry, most often they are related to the fact that a title that is completely niche gets a continuation after years. He certainly is such an example Soul Hackers 2one of several variants of the hardcore series of Japanese dungeon crawlers, Shin Megami Tensei. Of course, the whole thing again revolves around the end of the world and the fighting factions of people with supernatural abilities to summon “devils” (because it is also part of the sub-series Devil Summoner). Sublime music and story, a lot of characters and even more rummaging, leveling and combining in turn-based battles is something that you have provided here. This is a game for hardcore hardcore fans who will get tired and be treated very unfairly at times, but in the end everyone will be happy anyway. If you swallow the style of combining anime, cyberpunk and magic, then you have dozens of hours in a completely unique world.

  • Type: RPG, dungeon crawler

  • Platforms: PC (PLN 259.00), PS4, PS5 (PLN 239.00), XOne, Xbox Series (PLN 239.00)

  • Minimum hardware requirements: Intel Core i5-3470, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GTS 450 graphics

  • Recommended hardware requirements: Intel Core i5-8600, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 760 graphics

Dusk Diver 2 – August 30

Do you like defending the world from the demon invasion with fists and kicks? If so, you are in the right place. Already the first part Dusk Diver it perfectly combined the atmosphere of a summer anime about a superhero girl, with fast-paced action and so attractive to many views of colorful, contemporary Japan. Dusk Diver 2 it is to give us even more of this, while also combating repetitiveness, which was the greatest vice of its predecessor. You know what it’s like – completing missions, lots of dialogue, talking pets and living a double life; a heroic one in which we save the world and an ordinary one in which no one even suspects that we have super powers. It will not be the most original title of the year, but it will certainly allow many people to spend the last moments of summer in a very pleasant way.

  • Platforms: PC (PLN 219.00), PS4, PS5 (PLN 209.00), Switch (PLN 209.00)

  • Recommended hardware requirements: Intel Core i7-9700, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics

TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection – August 30

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are having a nice moment right now. After the recent premiere Shredder’s Revenge they are on the lips of players again, which is a great opportunity to release a compilation like The Cowabunga Collection. This is a complete list of Leonardo, Rafael, Michelangelo and Donatello titles produced by Konami in the 80’s and 90’s. So if you are eager to take the powerful Adventure Turtle Pill then this collection is for you. It is a great return to the times when walking killing was one of the leading genres on the market and almost every company tried to create its own hit of this kind. Thirteen games with brave reptiles using Japanese weapons, from the era of 8 and 16 bits, are probably the best proof of how times have changed.
