A new year is about to begin and another round of Games with Gold predictions is here. December’s Games With Gold are: Warhammer: End Times – Verminitide, Back to the Future: The Game – 30th Anniversary Edition, Child of Eden, and Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death.
1) Dishonored 2
Dishonored 2 is the sequel to Dishonored. It takes place in Karanca some years after the death of Empress Jessamine Kaldwin. Her daughter Emily is now Empress and you can choose between playing between Emily or her bodyguard/dad Corvo Attano when Emily’s aunt witch Deliah Copperspoon takes over the throne. Many of the same mechanics from the first Dishonored game appears in Dishonored 2. The story is great and overall a great play.
Cuphead had just came out in the last few months. It is an indie game where you play as Cuphead and the player fights a series of bosses in order to repay a debt to the devil. The game was heavily inspired by the rubber hose style of animation used in cartoons of the 1930s. The player must fight bosses to gain contracts since he had lost his soul to the devil in a game of craps.
3) Fable II
The game takes place in the fictional land of Albion, five hundred years after Fable’s original setting, in a colonial era resembling the time of highwaymen or the Enlightenment. Guns are still primitive, and large castles and cities have developed in the place of towns. Unlike the original, the player may choose to be either male or female.
4) Mass Effect 3
Mass Effect 3 is set within the Milky Way galaxy during the 22nd century where interstellar travel is possible through the use of mass transit devices called Mass Relays, a technology believed to have been built by an extinct alien race known as the Protheans. It is set 6 months after the events of Mass Effect 3.
What are you guys’ thoughts? Would any of these games be a good edition to the Games with Gold?
