JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle R
10 years after its arrival on PlayStation 3, this punchy fighting game is back in an ultimate edition on home consoles, and as much to say that there is plenty to do. On the program: fifty different characters from the famous franchise, skills to choose from to optimize your combat, a slightly updated and better oiled gameplay, various and varied game modes (like the All-Stars Battle mode allowing you to relive the events of the anime or the versus mode with 1v1, 2v2 and even 3v3)not to mention a nice graphical smoothing. In short, there is plenty to do, we told you.

Train Sim World 3
Coming from a series which, out of the blue, is beginning to date and to master its formula extremely well, Train Sim World 3 is neither more nor less than a railway worker simulation. With a first-person view, we will therefore have to drive trains and bring them to safe harbors by opting for dozens and dozens of routes, including necessarily some new ones for this new iteration. The same goes for the trains themselves, which are even more numerous. Oddly addictive, this is the kind of game with a much larger community than you’d think and here its even more generous content and authenticity make it a title to watch closely. And for the uninitiated, a whole new mode is offered so that you can learn how to get by gently. And why not, after all.
A solid Souls-like action-RPG that we’ve been staring at for quite a while. And for good reason: its context takes place in the middle of the 18th century in France, when Louis XVI persists in sending horrible automatons on the population. The French Revolution then takes place and in this bloody and fantastic bazaar, the player slips into the skin of Aegis, the queen’s bodyguard. Its very atypical, dark and fascinating universe as well as its promise of demanding action make it one of the releases to watch closely for the month of September. Moreover, the set is developed by Spiders and published by Nacon, two French companies.

If you like big metal that stains and beat demons in a satanic and post-apo atmosphere, then already, you are probably a Doom fan and we congratulate you. This is precisely why you should pay attention to Metal: Hellsinger, a very naughty FPS in which the protagonist, inhabited by an uncontrollable thirst for revenge, will attack the forces of hell with great shotgun blows and other joys. Its rather original particularity – because yes, it takes one to avoid being accused of plagiarism – is that its fast-FPS side also mixes with the “musical” game. It will thus be necessary to shoot in rhythm with the soundtrack and the more we manage to synchronize with the OST (heavy metal that stains, we remind you), the more it intensifies and the more powerful we become. . Un concept that promises chaotic action and that, we like.
If you like motorsports, then maybe SBK 22 will catch your eye: it’s a cult franchise that surprisingly retired from racing for ten years. 2022 thus signs its big comeback and here is what deserves a serious look at its proposal : a big solo mode with the official WorldSBK 2022 championship with twenty-four drivers and twelve stages, authentic race weekends (with three days of free practice, races and various situations), great management of his bike with the possibility of optimizing it in depth, an AI that we are told is revolutionary thanks to a data collection system… without forgetting the multiplayer. In short, a promising simulation that we can’t wait to discover from this month of September 2022.
This beat ’em up, which could well recall Devil May Cry at times, takes place in a gloomy universe, where we control two sisters, Briar and Lutes, reincarnated in the form of a chimera. Together, she has extraordinary power and resistance and will go and fight the Specters, ferocious creatures who manage to cross the “Veil” to attack the Sacred Kingdoms of Keidas. In short, you will have understood it but the universe of this Italian production (eh no, it is not Asian) promises to be frankly sought after and it is necessarily a good argument. In addition, its unbridled action is based on a sharp gameplay that we are promised rich, with also a little exploration in the key. Interesting, right?

Since Skate disappeared from the surface last decade, some have tried to replace it and Session is one of those pretenders to the throne: after years of early access on PC, the final release is finally due this month on and next-generation PC home consoles. We are therefore on a skate game whose open world can be traveled freely using your board and your imagination, a myriad of tricks being offered. We will emphasize the very authentic aspect with a “fish-eye” type camera and precise gameplay based on the following concept: each stick of the controller represents a foot, which we will have to learn to manage to perform tricks. Note that Session is defined as a game “by skateboarders for skateboarders”, which does not necessarily make it ultra-accessible… but no less integrated.
We are entitled to it every year and for 2022, it will therefore fall on September 30: Electronic Arts will deliver its behemoth FIFA 23. So, what’s new for this umpteenth vintage? Even deeper technology thanks to HyperMotion2, allowing for in-depth realism, but also all teams and licenses updated with in particular women’s clubs. PSo to speak, there are 19,000 players, 700 teams, over 100 stadiums and over 30 competitions. Not to mention the FUT mode. With that, you should hold out until next year without too much trouble.

Goat Simulator 3
We honestly don’t really know what it’s going to give, but the marketing campaign is in any case going all out so that we hear about it as much as possible: could it be that the budget injected allows for a slightly more polished experience? It’s still too early to know, but from what we know, the game looks totally crazy with a constant second degree and recurring nonsense. As a reminderwe take control of a goat among many available species with various objectives, always with the aim of causing a huge mess. The game is playable solo but also in online cooperation, up to four : there is also an extensive customization (and WTF) of our goat, the availability of several weapons, collectibles everywhere… To clear your mind after a hard day, Goat Simulator 3 could well be the game ideal. Maybe.
