PSX 2017: Super Daryl Deluxe Preview

I won’t lie: Super Daryl Deluxe was probably the strangest game I tried out at this year’s PlayStation Experience. The game, developed by the two-man team of Dan & Gary Games, is an oddball adventure about Daryl, a slack-jawed high schooler who finds himself at the center of an interdimensional conspiracy involving self-help gurus, an underground textbook market, and friendship-starved computers.

PSX 2017: Bow To Blood Preview

The idea is that players will take the role of captain on the airship Freelancer and take part in ship-to-ship combat for fortune and glory in The Arena. Bow To Blood struck a powerful nerve with me because I felt like I was playing a hybrid of Star Trek Bridge Crew with the sailing portions of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. Moving the Freelancer feels really great--it’s not zippy as a starfighter nor does it lumber about like a huge capital ship like the Galactica. The maneuverability of the airishp strikes a great balance that makes it a dream to fly.
