Special Shopping Guide: August 2017

Aeons of nothing and then August arrives, a very hot month and the Shopping Guide full of must-haves. Agree with the exits, in the name of heaven!

This month more than one will be tempted to take advantage of the sweaty holidays (in more ways than one, looking at the thermometer) to park in front of the home TV, air conditioner pointed in the face, onion omelette, frozen beer family, devilish cheering and free belch. And clearly a well-lit reference console, an increasingly lighter wallet but the satisfaction of an increasingly satisfied player. Let's see what diversions there are on the menu:

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

Developed by: Ninja Theory

Release date: 08/08/2017

Ninja Theory is a team that has already shown several times that courage - the real one - is certainly not lacking in the parts of Cambridge: Heavenly Sword had tried (with mixed fortunes) to make PS3 great, when the platform was the most distant from domination cheeky and absolute that Sony has accustomed us to. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, in a moment that (we will talk more about it in another location) was marking a profound crisis for all medium-budget productions, it was putting on the plate a very solid artistic direction and a post-post-apocalyptic concept that years later it would almost become a trend. On DmC Devil may Cry we have already spent too many words, calling it one of the bravest - and therefore controversial - chapters of the Dante series. It goes without saying that Senua could not be outdone compared to Nariko and Son: so here it is Hellblade tries to reinvent the concept of an independent title, proposing an “indie triple A” production that aims to combine a price within reach of all budgets with blockbuster production values. A demanding challenge, which we can only follow with an entirely academic interest - beyond the affection we have for studying English here on Holygamerz. The litmus test is scheduled for8th August.

Batman: The Enemy Within - The Telltale Series (Episode 1)

Developed By: Telltale Games

Release date: 08/07/2017

He could miss a second season of the Batman di Telltale? Fortunately not, since the American studio in this hot August goes out of its way (or rather in two, as we will see) in order to be able to dedicate itself to one of the most powerful DC Comics icons on the market. The promise is to please the fans of the first season but at the same time to be able to act as an entry point for those who missed the appointment last year, with the intention of bringing the usual and well-known cast of rivals to the screen. of the best Detective in the world, Joker first and foremost.

Sonic Mania

Developed By: Sega

Release date: 15/08/2017

 Already defined by some malignant "the beautiful Sonic of this year" (given the warm and cold welcome reserved for Sonic Forces), Sonic Mania is the umpteenth champion of those Nostalgia Operations that are doing very well this year. Sonic returns to its origins in an even more brazen way than seen with Sonic the Hedgehog 4, with the aim of bringing back in the middle of the 90s - times when ocio, however, were precious games - all fans of the Anti-Super Mario. Go as it goes, this year will still be remembered as one of the fattest of the last five years as far as the old school platformer is concerned.


Developed By: Toby Fox

Release date: 15/08/2017

Undertale also arrives on PS4 (and Vita, if anyone is interested in removing layers and layers of dust from the "ugly duckling" of the PlayStation house) on the wave of success already enjoyed on Steam. The title has become a cult in its own right, focusing very strongly on the strength of his ideas and on that attitude to lateral thinking that players have shown to greatly appreciate - we will not go to bother Hideo Kojima, and we will limit ourselves to mentioning Pony Island. The prerequisites for reconfirming oneself also on consoles are all there, given that however one lands in this new world already driven by a certain fame. Of course, maybe it would have been better to take the field in a less hot month than this sultry and crowded August, but the game is still to be played.


Developed By: Housemarque

Release date: 15/08/2017

Announced at the 2015 Paris Games Week on the Sony stage, Matterfall is finally ready to make its debut pad in the hand. Housemarque leaves the home garden for the first time, moving the camera from a bird's eye view to a side scrolling, but we don't expect the substance to change: arcade, frenzy, stroboscopic colors and explosions - chromatic, but also real. After the excellent Ex Machina, Housemarque's act of love towards herself, we want to see the same passion but aimed at the players. Another title to add to a fiery mid-August.
