Oman Gaming: Top games to look forward to this month

One of the top two games set to release this month is about guns and lots of blood, but the other is expected to take you to more leisurely settings.




Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus


The Americans clearly haven’t got past the whole Nazi thingamajig. One would have expected the Jews to hold a deep grudge, but that doesn’t seem to be the case today. The Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is the sequel to the successful Wolfenstein: New Order game from 2014. Like its predecessor, the new game also revolves around Polish protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz and his skirmish to overpower and overthrow the Nazi regime. We hear that he is relying on a newly formed militant group of resistance fighters to do the job. Whatever be the case, I feel it’s going to be a gory affair. Expect heavy gun action and lots of blood. This isn’t for the faint hearted.


Super Mario Odyssey


Not every game release this month features blood and gore: The Super Mario Odyssey is one clear example. The much-loved game will see Mario continuing his run – now with a host of extravagant moves and jumps – to save his beloved Princess Peach from Bowser. After all these years, one would expect her to be a bit more vigilant; but no. Thankfully, Mario, in this new game, will receive a new sidekick – Cappy – who can throw at certain objects or enemies to temporarily obtain their unique abilities. The game will be in 3-D but the physics engine will continue to be cartoonish. I’m not complaining, though. After all, I did grow up playing Mario on Sega.
