While Fe might be the name of an upcoming EA Originals game made by Swedish developer Zoink Games, Fe is also the name of a tiny, black, fox-like creature who sings to a mysterious place inspired by the Nordic Forest. The game itself is a delightful mixture of Ori and the Blind Forest, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid/Castlevania, and Shadow of the Colossus – without ever being too much like any one of those games that it loses its sense of originality. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever played anything that made me feel the same unique, meditative sense of…

The Surge 2 will be released next year and promises “larger and more ambitious level design, more brutal combat, and an expanded limb-targeting system”, according to a post on the official Surge Facebook page. May 2019 is the month the sequel is expected to land and improvements include “a bigger arsenal to overcome all the new enemies and bosses!”. The original game allowed the player to target specific body parts, resulting in a wider range of tactical combat choices – you could aim for a foe’s weak spot or opt for dismemberment if you wanted specific loot-based rewards, and the sequel…

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a strange game. Like the 2009 PSP game that spawned it, it’s a battle royale between your favourite Final Fantasy characters from most of the games in the series (including Type-0 and Tactics!), but the reworked combat couldn’t be more different. Dissidia NT is a 3v3 arena brawler with a real emphasis on team structure and strategy, and while it’s occasionally brilliant, it is unique among fighting games and cluttered in a way that makes it difficult to pick up and play. Also baffling is the weak single-player content, which Square Enix should’ve learned by…
