I'll admit, I never played Of Orcs and Men, where Styx made his first appearance or Styx: Master of shadows, Styx's first main game, and one I've had in my library for a little while. I've always enjoyed stealth games, games that require you to sneak around, have done since i played Metal Gear Solid for Playstation. I was never particularly great at them, but the thrill of trying to reach your objective without being spotted and if you are, having to then fight your way through or flee. Needless to say I was rather excited to get my hand on on Focus Home Interactive's latest title, Styx: Shard of Darkness and see what this game was all about. Despite having no previous experience in Styx's universe, I thought i would be perfect for this job as it means i can judge the game not only on how it plays, but how easy it is to access for newer players.
The first installment of Styx gathered quite the gathering of supporters. Players welcomed the opportunity to play as the 'bad' goblin in another stealth adventure game. However, the character of Styx looks to capitalize on the whole Deadpool and breaking the 4th wall. The trailer even references and casually jabs at assassins creed. Early gameplay looks to create quite a detailed high fantasy game with some great stealth combat. Fans of high fantasy settings blended with comic humour should check this out. Here's the launch trailer to wet your appetite.
Bethesda Softworks have announced the official release date for the highly anticipated stealth action sequel Dishonored 2, and it will beNovember 11th, 2016!
Made by Arkane Studios, you now control Emily Kaldwin, the child rescued in the first game and Corvo Attano, the once tarnished royal protector and protagonist of the first game. Set 15 years since the event in the first Dishonored game, the throne has been stolen from you and you must travel to the city of Karnaca to regain what you have lost.
Most stealth games involve a highly skilled military operative infiltrating a declassified off-the-grid environment. However, in LEVEL 22: Gary’s Misadventures you play as the titular Gary; a middle-aged, spectacled office worker who’s overslept after a boozy birthday party the night before and is on his last warning for being late to work and therefore must sneak through his place of employment to his office. The clandestine high-tech munitions factory, military base or other Fort Knox-like facility that you’d encounter in a Bond movie is swapped for the banality of a white-collar office in which you can almost smell the vending machine-brewed coffee and LaserJet cartridge ink. Gary is the Sam Fisher of the corporate world.
LEVEL 22: Gary’s Misadventures is an isometric stealth puzzle game developed by Noego games. Originally a PC game, Moving Player have ported LEVEL 22 to consoles and can be bought digitally on Xbox One. Your mission, if you’re willing to accept it, is to guide Gary up to his office on the twenty-second floor without being seen by his colleagues or the company’s other staff members.
