My summer in games, part XI: AM2R – Return of Samus

snap 0003Today we conclude my summer games summary with a very recent surprise release, Another Metroid 2 Remake or AM2R. Less surprising is that the game is now significantly harder to play after Nintendo sent out their cease- and desist-team to take down the fan-remake.

Ori-Definitive-Edition-artwork-mainIn “My summer in games, part X” I will talk about the Definitive Edition of Ori and the Blind Forest. A previously Xbox One-exclusive metroidvania. I cheered for Shadow Complex Remastered, will the story be the same for Ori?

doomOnly a couple of parts left of my summary of what I have played during the past summer. In this ninth part I talk a bit about the surprisingly great new Doom.

My summer in games, part VIII: Abzû

Abzu-752x430In part VIII of my games of my summer-summary I discuss the diving- and exploration game Abzû that I just finished a couple of days ago. It has been compared with the revered Playstation-classic Journey, and rightfully so it turns out.

My summer in games, part VII: Quadrilateral Cowboy

It was supposed to arrive years ago but the small team at Blendo games could not let go of it until very recently. Did it live up to my expectations? Find out in part VII of My summer in games.
