Simulation games are somewhat of an oddity for me. I’ve tried and played a lot of titles in the genre throughout the years but have come across outings that either don’t hold my interest long enough or are too complicated for my simple mind. Enter the latest from Two Point Studios – Two Point Campus. Coming out on August 9 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch, and PC, this installment is the latest from the minds that brought you Two Point Hospital back in 2018. As a Two Point newbie, I was quite intrigued about the game, so Sega handed me a bone and invited me to preview a sizable chunk of the game. While the coverage of this preview was supposed to show some advanced levels like the Wizardry Course, starting the game from scratch meant that I had to work my way up the ranks…

Boasting 186 unique endings and the ability to finish the game without even touching a button, The Quarry will definitely take players for a ride. Ahead of its launch next month, we were fortunate enough to try out about an hour’s worth of gameplay, showing us just how scary this spiritual successor to Until Dawn can really be.

Sony has been slowly ramping up its release efforts on the PC with titles like God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn. While it is still unknown what the next game will be, a Steam DB listing suggests that Housemarque’s Returnal is lined up for a PC release. According to the SteamDB info site, a product by the codename of “Oregon” has made its way to the app, and while there isn’t any specific mention of Returnal, scrolling down the logs will show some familiar terms like the Tower of Sisyphus, Atropos, and Helios. Furthermore, other terms like Female Protagonist, Roguelite, and bullet hell make it much clearer what the game is. Until an official announcement is made, it would be wise to take caution, and while there’s no mention of a release date yet, this lines up with Sony’s plan to bring more of its beloved franchises to the…
