It’s a new month and hence there’s a new choice to make. March’s Humble Choice supports Lotus Outreach International’s mission to empower vulnerable women and children living in poverty, which is pretty amazing. The game selection is not my cup of tea personally, but I could see how others may like to get this one for themselves, given that there are some pretty stellar (heh) titles in the selection of eight games available here!
|1||Mass Effect: Legendary Edition1||Bioware||Action, Sci-Fi, RPG|
|2||The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan||Supermassive Games||Adventure, Horror, Co-Op, Gore|
|3||Evan’s Remains||Maitan69||Indie, 2D, Puzzle-Platformer|
|4||Nebuchadnezzar||Nepos Games||Indie, Strategy, City Building Sim|
|5||Desperados III||Mimimi Games||Stealth, Strategy|
|6||Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl||Ludosity||Action, 2D Fighter, Multiplayer|
|7||Police Stories||Mighty Morgan||Indie, Strategy, Action, Top-Down-Shooter|
|8||Red Solstice 2: Survivors||Ironward||Strategy, RPG|
Right from the get-go, you may notice how there are only eight games in this month’s Choice, which may bother you potentially but I can assure you that the value is still there. Mass Effect: Legendary Edition and Man of Medan provide a lot of value for the whole bundle in themselves, so this month’s certainly worth it if you’re into story-driven games like these two. Man of Medan can get quite gore-y at times, though, so trigger warnings ahead! Sadly, I’ve already seen plenty of gameplay of Man of Medan, although I’d argue that the individual experience is always slightly different due to the sheer number of choices you can make. Evan’s Remains looks interesting but I’m personally not the biggest fan of platformers, so there’s that. Nebuchadnezzar is an interesting old-school-esque City Building Sim set in ancient Mesopotamia, which is an interesting premise for sure!
And well, while I do enjoy Stealth-Strategy games like Desperados, I must say that I’m not too excited about this one, given that I’m just not the biggest fan of games set in the Wild West. Yes, I’m quite excited about Weird West but Desperados never seemed to do much different. It’s more of the same, pretty much… Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl sounds like a fun idea. It pretty much is what Smash is… but with Nickelodeon characters and while I find the idea fun and while I’d enjoy it a lot, mostly due to nostalgia, I don’t think I’d ever be good enough for it. Meanwhile, Police Stories and Red Solstice 2 are just kind of there. I’d imagine that there is a fanbase for those games but personally, I’m just not the biggest fan.
As you may have noticed, I’m not the biggest fan of this bundle. Mass Effect is still on GamePass and while I planned on playing it eventually, I’m frankly not in the mood at the moment and I’m not even sure if I’d enjoy the game in the first place. Meanwhile, I’m not the biggest Horror fan… and Gore is pretty… “ew” for me. I will pause this month’s Choice subscription despite having a bit of an interest in some of the titles. As a whole thing there is a lot of value to this month’s Choice but personally, I have a lot of other things on my plate and it’s – as always – a matter of “will I play these anytime soon or will they just be forgotten in the backlog?”… and it’s mostly the latter, I guess.
Still, will you check out this month’s Choice? Are you excited about some of these titles? Are you bothered by having to get Origin for ME:LE or do you not mind at all?
