Welcome folks, and happy “226th Anniversary of Napoleon’s wedding to Josephine” week!

It was fairly unceremonious. Napoleon was an up-and-coming artillery officer at the time and wanted to be wed quickly before he was sent off to Italy and war. Napoleon was 2 hours late because he got distracted looking at maps. They went to Jospehine’s apartment for the wedding night, but Josephine’s pet pug wouldn’t let Napoleon on the bed and bit him. Napoleon was shipped off to Italy a few days later—the lack of a proper honeymoon may have explained the many, many letters Napoleon wrote to Josephine while he was on campaign. You may all celebrate by playing a game where one of the NPCs won’t stop bugging you until you do their quest.

Finally, a relatively quiet week (for games). I’m still nomming on Horizon Forbidden West, patiently hunting mechanical beasts for upgrade materials. There’s a world I’m supposed to save, but I need that Sunstriker pineal gland!

Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok is a 35-hour, “gods and monsters” endgame. You play as Odin, with a host of new, freaky powers like raising the dead, magma skin, and raven form. The new, giant (dwarven, actually), mythical realm you’re in is replete with new enemies and standard Ubi openworld activities: strongholds, arenas, quests, and collectibles. Here we see Assassin’s Creed do a bit of a Far Cry and use DLC to mix things up, picking up and amplifying the mythological themes that were set up in the “Odin dream quest” storyline in the main game. It sounds pretty wild, if you haven’t already burnt out on this game.

Aztech: Forgotten Gods is by Mexican devs, Lienzo. It’s like the original, PS2-era God of War, but with Aztec mythology and less gore.

Dead by Daylight: Sadako Rising adds the spooky girl from The Ring as a playable character.

Submerged: Hidden Depths is a combat-free, exploration platformer. Take your boat around a sunken city and parkour through the protruding ruins. It’s a game made up of just the tombs from Tomb Raider, the shrines of Breath of the Wild, or the ruins in Horizon Forbidden West.

Distant Worlds 2 is a space 4X looking to take the crown off Stellaris. It got some early buzz from space 4X fans who are desperate for something to play other than Stellaris.

Century: Age of Ashes is a free to play, multiplayer, dragon-riding combat game. There’s not many games where you can ride dragons through castle archways and shoot fireballs at other dragons.

This week’s triple-I indie darling is RPG Time: The Legend of Wright!. It’s called a “papercraft RPG” because of its arts-n-crafts aesthetic. It’s presented as a kid’s notebook full of pencil drawings come to life. Each page is a different, offbeat minigame that’s part of the kid’s rambling story. The charm lies in strange tasks to undertake and funny details. This game is going to get called “quirky” a lot.

Republique: Anniversary Edition is a 10-year anniversary re-release of a stealth game that was one of the first big Kickstarters for games. It’s one of those strict stealth games, where you can’t fight your way out of trouble: if you get caught, you will be frogmarched to a cell and will have to break out to continue sneaking.

On the Switch, Will You Snail? is not a garden-based survival sim where you move very slowly, but rather a frantic, neon-drenched reflex platformer with a Super Meat Boy level of difficulty. Chocobo GP is kart-racing with the chicken-like Chocobos and other creatures from Final Fantasy. There’s also Yong Souls, a 2D brawler RPG with split screen co-op.

RPG Time: The Legend of Wright! stands out from the crowd on pure force of personality. Despite watching a lot of previews, I still have no idea what it would be like to play, which makes me curious to try. GOTW.
