Another year, and another chance to complain that there are too many types of games and not enough money or time to play them all. So, it’s probably best to start thinking ahead and making plans for how you want to spend your money and time on games in 2023. We’ve already talked about a lot of the indie games coming out this year. Now it’s time to see what Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft are putting out this year.
- Persona 3 Portable
This year, there will be yet another Persona game for PC. After Persona 4 and Persona 5, the next official port is Persona 3 Portable. This is, of course, another modern fantasy story about a teen detective, and it’s also one of the strangest in the series. In P3, characters call up their Personas by firing something called an “Evoker” at their own heads. This is not a gun at all. Persona 3 is similar to the rest of the RPG series in that it has time management, mysteries, and high school antics.
Frey Holland, a modern New York teen, ends up in the magical world of Athia, where, of all things, parkour starts to happen. Frey skates, jumps, and divider runs her way through the open world of Athia. She does this with the help of a magical bracelet and some powerful magical skills. When Forspoken was first shown, it really stood out because of how pretty it looked. In a later trailer, however, there was too much talking, which made it seem a little less impressive. When it finally comes out, we’ll see how well the two go together.
- Dead Space Remake
Motive is remaking the popular space horror shooter from 2008, and based on the short amount of time we gotta play it a few months before it came out, it’s a pretty good copy. Tyler Wilde, our executive editor, said back in October, “The new Dead Space will look a lot like the old one, but with updated graphics, fewer bugs from the mid-2000s, and a much more detailed Ishimura.” Cutting off alien limbs with a plasma cutter is still gruesomely fun, and the no-HUD approach and physics puzzles from the first game are still there.
Inkulinati is a turn-based strategy game based on mediaeval marginalia. Animal flatulence is as deadly a weapon as a greatsword or a morningstar, and it’s drawn in the game. You’ll put together a team of cat bishops and man-eating snails and draw them in Living Ink so they can fight against the forces of other Inkulinati. The art style is based on the weird pictures in mediaeval manuscripts.
