Adventure Game

Hob: Definitive Edition

It’s hard to categorize HOB: Definitive Edition. The game reminds me of Zelda, but lacks the scale of story and quests, and epic bosses. It also reminds me of Hyper Light Drifter, but lacks the explosive combat. Really, HOB is its own sort of animal. It seeks to emulate, but not copy other great games.

Deracine Review

From Software’s games are built on non-traditional narratives that primarily involve sleuthing context and backstory from item descriptions, environmental design and hanging onto every word spoken by NPCs. Those who seek out clues will be rewarded with context, though none of that is necessary to enjoy the games. That’s why I was intrigued by Deracine, a first-person adventure game created exclusively for the PlayStation VR.
