Ashen is one of those games that could be a hit or miss. It seems to have blocky/low polygon and stylistic graphics but may make up for this with smooth game play and an in-depth story. The real-time fighting looks very satisfying - we just want to see how skills, magic, and other aspects may work in this interesting looking world. A little multiplayer would be pretty sweet too.
August passed by in a flash, but that doesn't mean we aren't still playing the big titles that released. If you weren't hiding under a rock you will probably already know about Dead Cells and Guacamelee but lets take a look at which games made the top for each category!
Developer: Creative Assembly
Genre: Strategy, Action, War, RTS
Platforms: Microsoft Windows
Total War: The Three Kingdoms has announced they will be going a different direction than previous games. It seems they will be focusing more on developing characters, alliances, and relationships. This is a different approach and we will have to see how it works coming next spring… uhg that seems so long. But hopefully this will be well polished and ready to hit the charts by then.
“If the original Total War: Three Kingdoms release date had stuck then the game would be nearly upon us. Three Kingdoms was first scheduled for autumn this year – though with May’s Thrones of Britannia to tide us over, it wasn’t too painful when Three Kingdoms was delayed. Now it’s set to arrive in spring 2019.” -pcgamer
“Total War: THREE KINGDOMS is the next major historical Total War game and is the first game in the award-winning series to take place in China. The Three Kingdoms period is one of the most turbulent times in Chinese history. The Han Dynasty is crumbling; the stage is set for a great new epoch, forged by the fires of conquest – the time to establish your legacy is now. But with many warlords eyeing the throne, each with a large army to back up their claim, it’s clear that the future of China will be shaped by its champions.” –totalwar.com

“Star Citizen was originally due for a commercial release in 2016, which was then pushed back to 2017 but, as we know, it didn’t appear in 2017 either. The original delay was said to be due to the team working on getting one of the game’s 28 chapters to release quality so it could showcase it, but that would suggest there is still a long way to go if there are another 27 chapters to finish afterwards.
Following the delays, Star Citizen’s creator Chris Roberts went on record to state that the game won’t have a ‘normal commercial release’ which suggests to us that the game will become available in big chunks over time.
There’s still no real timeline though – fan sites suggest a 2018 launch could be possible, but honestly, given the scale of the project and how badly the current alpha performs, we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s still at least a year away from launch, if not two.”

“In Cyberpunk 2077, the player will be thrown into a dark future. The metropolis of Night City is a stage set to tell the tale of one individual, raised on the streets, who tries to lift himself up from the gutter and find a way to survive amongst boostergangs and megacorporations in a city of filth and sin. Drugs, violence, poverty and exclusion haven’t disappeared by 2077, as people stayed they were for centuries – greedy, closed-minded and weak. But not only ghosts of the past trouble mankind, but new issues have appeared. Psychos go on rampages and the streets are filled with junkies addicted to a new form of entertainment – the braindance, a cheap way to experience the emotions and stimuli of someone else, someone living a more exciting life.” –siliconera.com

“Acting as a direct sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest, Will of the Wisps once again has you playing as Ori, a white guardian spirit responsible for watching over the forest alongside Sein, the light and eyes of the sacred Spirit Tree.” –trustedreviews.com
Hey there gamers, July has come and gone and it sure went by fast. If you missed all the new game releases, don't worry because AButtonGames has your back. We have taken the liberty of compiling a list of the top 10 games for each console!
Hey there gamers! Over the past month or so there have been quite a few game releases included a good host of games released today (6/5/2018). Some of them are hot and some are... not so much. Bigger titles can be found on meta reviews but we want to cover some smaller titles or games we just otherwise missed!
So if you are a fan of the Little Witch Academia anime then you will appreciate this game. If not, do not even waste your time. The game brings the characters to life with lots of colors and peppy conversations but the RPG elements lag behind and border on annoying.
Hey there souls fans, if you aren't out there buying this remaster right now... then I'm sure you are contemplating whether buying this classic remaster is worth it (like I am right now). From the looks of things, it just might be. There is a massive improvement in texture quality and performance with almost everything else staying the same. With this new release massive amounts of people will be playing online (the lack thereof is what made me stop playing), so get in while it's hot. Watch out for LokiAdvanced though or you might just end up with a dagger in your back.
Have you been craving a good Beat-Em Up game? Well Raging Justice might just be the game for you! Sure it's an older genre but that doesn't mean it's bad. The animation and graphics do look a little rough though.
Hey RPG fans, if you still own your PS2 just to play Baldur's Gate or Champions of Norrath, then come back to 2018 because Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is what you have been looking for. Although you might want to start with the prequel if you haven't played that yet (you don't have to... but it will probably make the game experience better). Not only it have the best RPG elements that give us that nostalgic feeling but you are also the captain of a ship and can sail the ocean! Sounds like a great mix, and other critics agree.
Destiny 2: Warmind takes the game to a whole new level! But that 'new' level just happens to be more of the same stuff and actually not new at all. You will get a slough of new gear but if you are playing by yourself then this expansion is a bit daunting. Seems like they made a big PvP improvement though
If you are looking for an awesome game to play through with a buddy then A Way Out is the way to go. It's short and sweet and looks like a ton of fun (especially if you've ever seen prison break). You get lots of choices, options, and dynamic gameplay with alternate endings! Of course it's not without some short comings but no game is perfect right? Well take a look at some reviews below and find out a bit more!
