Science fiction is always a genre of game we love to keep our eyes on hi folks it’s a falcon and today on game ranks the sci-fi games of 2020 that deserve your attention just a quick disclaimer atomic heart outright death loop and halo infinite are not coming out this year so we are not talking about them today we do have a lot of great games to talk about:
Cyberpunk 2077 flying cars
which we don’t know what we could possibly say here to explain what cyberpunk 2077 is now other than it seems like they’ve delayed it a lot however these delays keep coming in very incrementally and they’re not long distances of delays which makes me think oh they found another thing that they want to do either differently or fix or whatever we’re just really excited that this massive first first-person shooter action rpg in what is probably the most beautiful version of a cyberpunk world we’ve seen is coming soon we are so excited obviously this is going to be the biggest game of the year it’s the follow-up to cd projekt red’s the witcher 3. it’s cyberpunk it’s cool we mean it’s gonna be the biggest game of the year there’s nothing else to say you’re never going to escape this game once it comes out we can’t wait to play it when it lands on every system that you could possibly want to play it on on december 10th couple of bonus games for you as well starting with destiny 2 beyond light the fifth expansion to destiny 2 taking place on Jupiter’s icy moon we are interested in that that sounds like an interesting place to expand to watch legion came out the version of watchdogs that takes place in an authoritarian state love it actually a very good game we haven’t been able to spend as much time as i want with it yet the game is literally a day old as of this recording however it’s out on everything and from what we have played it’s really enjoyable probably the best watchdogs if it continues next is hell point an action rpg that is out on xbox one ps4 windows and switch an action rpg that is in a lot of ways souls like but in some key ways different particularly in that your health is refilled by dealing damage to monsters that adds a very interesting mechanic to the game finally and this one’s not out yet but proteus which is like a old school first person shooter which does some really clever stuff trying to look like a sprite based scam while not being we don’t know it’s really impressive it looks like something out of the 90s but also utterly impossible for something in the 90s that comes out later in the year.
the third party independent remake of half-life the original which essentially rebuilt the game from the ground up into a much more cohesive experience particularly the ending areas on zen but overall really redesigning a lot of elements not just artistically but also mechanically and attempting to incorporate more of the design principles from half-life 2 into half-life 1. ultimately comes out as essentially an official release it’s an amazing game it also does a lot to sort of resolve some conflicts between the original half-life story and the retcon stuff that happened in half-life 2. that just works like the half-life is a great game don’t get me wrong but we would say that black mesa is a better game we enjoy black mesa more than we enjoy the original half-life they did a fantastic job and it is currently available on steam you should play it.
a game that i cannot stress is really innovative and fun so it is essentially a game in which the premise is you have a billion credit debt to pay back to lynx corporation and you’re gonna do it by disassembling ships for salvaged parts metal etc essentially the best way to describe it is taking apart pieces of ships in zero g and accumulating credits by selling those parts and paying that debt back to this big corporation that apparently holds power over you it is a really good looking game for one the graphics are incredible space is both kind of eerie and kind of beautiful the ships are ominous dead looking and the physics simulation in which you are taking them apart is absolutely one of the coolest things you’re ever gonna see you’re literally just chopping these things up you take that scrap it’s not just chopping things up though you also transport what you’re taking out of the area really it’s just it’s a different kind of game and i think that you’re gonna see this copied a lot as the technology becomes more normal the destroy things and recover salvage from a site but we are also curious as to how that idea would work in a situation with gravity because in zero gravity man it just works hard space ship breaker is actually already out in early access and i highly recommend it highly recommend it.
an action rpg we’ve seen delayed a lot through the years um but it’s a game that i really want to play on account it looks like it’s got a pretty ambitious look at things like the way that you do character creation is a lot like how an animal works the actual physical attributes you give it affected statistics instead of picking statistics like if you make a bulky character they’re going to be able to take more and give more as far as damage but they’re going to be slower smaller characters obviously similar they’re going to be weaker but they’re going to be faster it also looks like there’s a lot of collecting of various items for the purposes of crafting but the really big thing we’re interested in is just the actual type of game it is like in a lot of ways it looks like a platformer but in a lot of other ways it looks like a very combat oriented game we haven’t really seen a lot of those that have actually gotten a lot of attention like you’ve had your jack and daxters you’ve had your ratchet and clanks but i think it’s maybe even a little bit different from those because it calls itself an action rpg i just have a sense for whatever reason that it is going to be a really interesting game possibly a very good one and it’s still scheduled for release on windows PlayStation 4 and Xbox one this year.
having played it the best way can describe this game is mirror’s edge with a samurai sword and if that sounds like fun it’s more fun than that so the slicing is done with a physics simulation it’s one hit one kill it’s incredibly fast-paced and it takes place in a post-apocalyptic cyberpunk world that exists inside a tower in destroyed earth um yeah you will play this if that sounds like fun to you it’s better than it sounds the premise is so well executed and although would say it’s a little bit short for my taste if you download the demo you will understand exactly why we recommending it so incredibly hard ghost runner is currently out on windows PlayStation 4 and Xbox one it’s hitting the switch in November and it’s hitting the next generation of consoles early next year highly recommended.
which is an open world factory building game yes in every possible way it is an incredibly unique experience and again highly recommended the sci-fi genre is very far-reaching and it includes a lot of different types of games satisfactory is kind of one part Minecraft kind of one part of survival game and kind of one part a city builder except for the city is in fact a factory the factory is making things i mean genuinely it is just something that is totally different from anything else you’ve played and it involves so many different types of gameplay that it’s a little bit hard to even like settle down to one specific genre as you obviously heard a moment ago but the core mechanics of this game are so damn good that it’s amazing it’s an early access game at this point this is one of those games that kind of takes a premise like factorion and makes it into this much larger much more intense and much more immersive experience and i just i absolutely love it i think that it’s something that is much bigger than the sum of its parts and you will waste tons of time playing this game and it’s still in early access again.
a space combat game in some ways a continuation of the rogue squadron and in some ways a continuation of x-wing and tie fighter very old games that frankly are series that should have been continued this isn’t a game that is going to shock you with its narrative brilliance or anything like that, however, this is a fantastic space shooter it just does a great job with everything it’s doing and it comes down basically to the difference between the republic ships and the empire ships as long as you again aren’t looking for the best story you’ve ever heard in your life is just a phenomenal game it’s so fun star wars squadrons is fantastic it is also out to play now on PlayStation 4 Xbox One and Microsoft windows.
which some people might not think that is sci-fi however we would classify it for sure sci-fi kind of a hell demon space demon situation it’s doom did you play doom 2016 you want more you lose your crap over the thought of a grappling hook shotgun added into doom we did, in fact, that again we have said this probably a million times is enough of a selling point for me to be like all right yeah that justifies equal absolutely and you know what it is as fun as it sounds do maternal turned out so good there are several little tweaks like how death is handled and stuff like that which make it a different enough experience and in a lot of ways we think to improve on the formula that was created for doom 2016. do maternal is out on pc ps4 and Xbox one you will be seeing it on Nintendo’s switch PlayStation 5 and Xbox series x sometime in the future however you can play it now and you should it’s fantastic.
Black mesa does not mention half-life Alex
which is a prequel to half-life 2 following Alex around that’s probably one of the more significant elements of it however to me the biggest thing is that this is a game that more or less gets VR fps’s completely right as well as gives you a lot more to do than just shooting enemies the only complaint we have is that the movement system is a little bit rudimentary however everything else about this game more or less overrides that in my mind half-life Alex just a fantastic game like they did such a good job with it and it was a smart idea to do for VR to sort of push people into VR half-life 3 when valve half-life 3 win.
Totally we really happy to share the sci-fi game for all of you, hope you make decision to play all the game we recommended above and don’t forget to like our Facebook page and subscribe with your email to read more our content.
