Well my fellow gamers, we are in the month of July. Since there is no stopping the passage of time, why not at least make it enjoyable with this week’s game releases? We have a survival horror, a VR shooter, and a retro RPG waiting in the wings. There’s also a Mega-Man-style platformer and a 2D action-puzzle game to round out the week.
Synapse– PlayStation VR2
- The first VR game to grace the weekly game release article. You play as a mind-breaking agent who must infiltrate the subconscious of an enemy of the state. Use your telekinetic powers and trusty weapons to battle through surreal levels. Will you find what you are looking for, or is the mind too powerful to break?
Alterium Shift– PC
- A retro-inspired RPG where your choices matter. Choose from one of three heroes and try to prevent a catastrophic conflict. Each hero has their own story, which intertwines with each other as their journey moves forward. Will you save two worlds in conflict, or are the choices too difficult?

Check out the new Time Attack Mode and online leaderboards to show you are truly the superior star.
Gylt– PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, Series X/S
