Summer is coming to an end but that doesn’t mean the hot gaming season has slowed down one bit. August has been a packed month for games we played and you should know about. We brawled giant monsters in GigaBash, build up a fierce firefighter team in Fire Commander, tried the new take on an Atari classic with Yars: Recharged, and more. Check out the thoughts and review of the games we tried this month in the game box.
Last month we experienced a lot of games at PAX East but the flow of new games never stops. We have even more games that got sent our way and for this month we tried: the Soulslike isometric action of Achilles: Legends Untold, a horror sim in Ravenous Devils, the pushing puzzles of Sokobos, roguelike golfing with Golfie, and more for this month’s game reviews.
As we’re gearing up for the return of PAX East next month, we checked out a batch of new games to review. We explored a futuristic Aztec society in Aztech Forgotten Gods, tried to solve an FMV whodunnit? in Who Pressed Mute on Uncle Marcus?, drove a high-tech spy car in Agent Intercept, tried to survive frozen horrors in Expedition Zero, and more.
While huge games like Horizon: Forbidden West and Elden Ring are taking up most of the gaming spotlight, there were a bunch of smaller games that a few people might have missed. We experienced the horrors of war in Martha is Dead, fought against monsters with Elf magic in About in Elf, battled zombies pinball-style in Zombie Rollerz: Pinball Heroes, and more. Check out everything we got to play below in this month’s game reviews in the Gamebox 2.0.
As 2021 comes to a close, we wrapped up the last bits of gaming for the year. We got to float around in the seas in Trash Sailors, silently took out enemies in Aiko’s Choice, survived a fast-food nightmare in Happy Humble Farms, bounced and toss robots around in Clockwork Aquario, hunted for resources in Mechajammer, and got some fun in the sun with friends in Retired Men’s Nude Beach Volleyball League.
