A metroidvania, simulation, and exploration game today. 

Cyber Shadow:


I played this for a hot few minutes streaming on Xbox for Game Pass rewards. It's a Metroidvania in old pixel-art glory. Of course, it kicks your butt. 

Matrix Awakens - The Unreal Engine 5 Experience:


A free download, so why not? Keanu Reeves says cryptic things and then you "play" a short action sequence just aiming an agent's weapons at enemies. Then you are set loose in a gigantic city rendered in Unreal Engine 5 (menus are shown in Windows '95 style, haha). It's impressive, but you can't do much in the city but run around and send your drone out to look from above. You can't enter any buildings or interact with anything. I just did a jog around a city block and ended it. It's going to be crazy when the next open-world game gets made in this engine. Imagine hunting for Crackdown orbs in a realistically scaled city. They'd be impossible to find. 

The Gunk:


Just started this game on Game Pass. I am already hooked scanning plant life and mineral deposits. You have an arm-mounted vacuum of sorts that can suck up the weird oily deposits that lie about and squelch plant growth on the alien planet you are exploring. I'm already recalling Journey to the Savage Planet. I can't wait to get further into this.

I think I tried to request a review copy of that Cyber Shadow game but wasn't able to get one.

I definitely wanna try Cyber Shadow. I need to get that on my Switch wishlist so I don't forget. It cracks me up, though, that someone would name their game "The Gunk" lol.

I didn't finish The Gunk. There was a puzzley sort of part near the end I couldn't figure out. 

The stuff you siffon up is exactly what you'd call "gunk", just an oily, gelatinous waste product.
