Choice of video games: in May, play as you please

Published April 30, 2022, 6:28 p.m.

Back on the road… We are on the road again with a new selection of video games to take the end of spring break…

Wonderland of tiny Tina

Imagine a game in which the characters are a lidkorn (unicorn with two horns), called “donkey stallion”, a rebellious hero, a little stupid named Valentine and, finally, Frett, a robot, a former office worker (closer to C6PO than to Terminators). A game in which these three shaky heroes must fight against the Dragon Lord, a necromancer who does not like heroism … And now imagine a 13-year-old girl, Tiny Tina, as the mistress of the game, with her cubes, her rabbits. , her sweets and her explosives. And you will get a rich, colorful and charming adventure game. Too funny. This is Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, a game developed by Gearbox Software, to which we owe Borderlands’ powerful post-apocalyptic role-playing games.

The idea is original and gives birth to a little crazy game, a chaotic fantasy world, where the rules are few. For now, we will stop the Dragon Lord thanks to a strange detachment: a group of heroes called the Hands of Fate. On the menu: monsters, dungeons, booty and conversations Tina, who without hesitation changes the rules and sets traps for our heroes. Because of this, the epic breath of the Borderlands saga took place.

Tina’s amazing world is full of links and promises many surprises to players, in this adventure sometimes a little chatty, but available, despite the large number of weapons, spells and enemies. The developers have developed a beautiful, visually almost psychedelic and rich single-player game, but they have not forgotten those who love a joint or even competitive game. Tiny Tina’s can be enjoyed by more than four people. Also expect a competition for originality in the settings of the characters, which you can handle for long hours of play.

majority : epic. Least : It is not always easy to follow Tina in her delusions.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is available on Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Lego star wars skywalker saga

For several years now, the Lego license has been entertaining with Warner Bros. A game to adapt some of the biggest movie sagas into video games. The Star Wars universe has already suffered, but the developer of TT Games has never done such a thing: insert nine movies from the Star Wars saga into one game. With the characters: Luke Skywalker and all his friends, including R2D2, Leia, Ray, Chewbacca, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Lando Calrissiana and so on. There are over 300 characters to unlock! Ability to explore the entire universe of the series in Lego mode, with many fights, removable sets and humor, which is still just as devastating and well suited to the original spirit of the film. For the script, it is not complicated, but movies. But you can always start three trilogies in any order.

What a pleasure to experience the best scenes of the saga anyway … between several phases of battle (on earth as well as in space, driving a Millennium Falcon or TIE-fighters or X-Wings), research, little puzzles. To satisfy adults and children. The game is easy to pick up, extremely enjoyable and fun. There are 23 planets and environments (graphically very successful) to explore, enough to have a good time alone and especially with friends. Especially since the game is not stingy on quests. It’s beautiful, successful and funny.

majority : STAR WARS !!!!! Least : sometimes a little repeated.

LEGO Star Wars : The Skywalker saga is available on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has sold 3.2 million units worldwide in the last two weeks

Crusaders III

I am the king… Well, not yet. But almost. I am currently running a small corner of Ireland. I have a few squires, a few not-so-demanding serfs, and not-so-intrusive neighbors. But my reign has just begun. My dynasty, which I am going to establish with my wife and children. Welcome to Crusader Kings 3, which recently came out on the console, enchanting PC gamers. Management consoles are a bit more complicated, given the many features in this royal simulation. A mixture of lordly life management and medieval warfare.

The tutorial is welcome to start in Ireland (where we won’t be expelling Scots for long), but once we learn the basics of the game (war and moving armies, influencing other characters, building several fortifications, etc.), the interactive Paradox will allow you to start your French dynasty. , England, Iceland, India, Central Africa or goods from other more or less remote countries, taking care of the power of immediate neighbors.

In Crusader Kings III, the saying goes: the king is dead, long live the king. Every decision (plague epidemic, crusade, etc.) will affect the rest of history. A story that will not end with the king’s death, which will happen sooner or later. From here it is important to find a good wife, grow and multiply. Each leader – and each character in the game – also has their own personality and skills. This will need to be taken into account when deciding on the future of the Kingdom. Watch out for stress that can push you down the wrong path. Think about organizing a small tournament to relax from time to time.

In the console version, the battles are different, supported by artificial intelligence games. This slightly reduces opportunities, but not strategies for conquering territories or defending one’s own. Undoubtedly, one of the best military games on the market: strategic, giant and instructive. Successful adaptation.

majority : hours of history. Least : time consuming and sometimes difficult.

Crusader Kings is available on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S (tested version) and on PC.

Road 96

With the advent of DigixArt, it’s definitely time to transfer from PC to console. Road 96 is not an ordinary game, it is an adventure-story, a video game-road movie, which was presented by the Frenchman John Fanis, known for his game Soldats Inconnus for Ubisoft.

So, here you are on the edge of Route 96, thumbs up. If you do not want to spend a little money on the bus. Unless you decide to “borrow” a car. Landscapes parade, adventures gradually take place. Adventure, escape and purring engine. But the road trip is reminiscent of Thelma and Louise, and it will quickly become a dangerous trip to Petri, inspired by the United States. A country where freedom is an empty word and the police are very persistent. In short, the life of a runaway teenager in this authoritarian country, on the verge of collapse, is not easy.

Awarded many prizes during the Pegasus 2022 ceremony, the PC game finally appears on consoles without losing any emotional charge, colorful universe, strange and cozy atmosphere. Hitchhiking allows you to meet amazing, cute, and sometimes disturbing characters. Along the way, the player will have to make more or less complex decisions that will more or less strongly affect the rest of the adventure. You have to write your story – there are five different journeys that can be repeated – trying to find a way to survive. Road 96 is worth a detour because of its scenery and imagination, as well as its prospects. Indie game in every sense of the word.

majority : on the way to the unknown. Least : Reserved for fans of story games

Route 96 is available on the Playstation 4, Playstation 5 and Xbox One / Series X.

Jurassic World Evolution 2: Chalk Camp

I have never been a fan of summer camps… in particular. But I’m ready to make an exception for this DLC, this pack of dinosaurs from the prehistoric Frontier Park Management game. For € 9.99, the developers of this tribute to the Jurassic Park saga invite you to discover two new beasts: Scorpius Rex and Monolophosaurus. Dinosaurs that will draw crowds to your park. You will also find two wonderful herbivores (so to speak): uranosaurus and centrosaurus. A story to slightly extend the pleasure of being considered a god.

majority : Here, Rex, here. Least : A bit expensive (DLC, not the main game required in this area).

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, Microsoft Windows (version verified).

GTA V for everyone

Awaiting the release of the next GTA 6, Rockstar is releasing a version of its gangster game for the PS5, which has sold over 160 million copies! The main innovation is the graphics quality of this new version, more beautiful, more testosterone, crazier than ever. For the beauty of the gesture and for those who want to discover the rich and famous universe.
