Cyberpunk lovers need to give Citizen Sleeper a go. 

Very inspired by Blade runner and a pretty chill game you can play to unwind. 

 

Also, really hyped for Sniper Elite 5. Will play today.

noice!!! and Ninja Gaiden is the uncensored version I think. 

 

 

It's the Sigma remake for Ninja Gaiden II, so the gore has been removed.

oh, thats unfortunate.

 

Not a big deal though, it's still a fun game. Plus I think this version had some extra character chapters (Ayane, Rachel & Momiji) that the original didn't.

Quite a big deal. 
 

The original version was much superior & created by series originator Itagaki Tomonobu.

 

He deleted the original source code before leaving the company out of some vendetta though. 
 

One should play the 360 version through BC on XBoxOneX/SeriesX,I think it was upgraded to 1800p@60fps.

Trust me, I swear by the original as well, but as someone who has played both the games, I feel like Sigma 2 is fine for people who haven't tried the X360 one. I even replayed Ninja Gaiden II when it arrived on GamePass and the 4K 60fps treatment made it look so crisp. But with all that said, Sigma 2 is a perfectly fine game to play on it's own as well. I was on Ayane's chapter on the PC remaster before I got distracted with some other game. Else would have completed that too. The remaster does sport 4K 60fps here too, so it's much crisper than the PS3 version. Plus you have those additional playable characters and boss fights mixed in, not bad if you're cruising through this collection for the first time (or even a replay), especially now that it's on GamePass.

How hard is Ninja Gaiden compared to say, Returnal or Elden Ring. I have heard a lot about it. Would like to try. 


It has difficulty settings & there is no grinding so can’t compare with Soulsborne genre. 
Can compare it to Platinum Games stuff. 
 

But it’s quite hard on difficult settings.

I played Sigma on PS3 & 2 on 360 on normal difficulty if I remember correctly.

Finally got my xsx and joined the scamgang. Other than the obvious big games, what are some of the gems that went under the radar that I should give a try?

 

If the obvious ones doesn't include Psychonauts 2 for you, definitely play that first.

 

Other than that: Death's Door, Tunic, Artful Escape, Hades, It Takes Two

Yup, already downloaded it. I haven't played Psychonauts 1 though. Hope that isn't a prerequisite.

Not at all. The game starts with a video recapping the first.

Watch story recap on YouTube. 

 

It's a direct sequal with same characters so best to know what they are trying to do in the beginning.
