Latest releases have adventures for everyone

“Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse,” a mystery released in 2013, is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as of Friday, Sept. 4. The mystery takes place in Paris where a fearless American teams up with a French journalist to get to the bottom of a murder in a gallery and track down a stolen painting, all on a two-dimensional, hand-drawn. Money for the game was raised through kickstarter making well over the amount asked for and some through paypal donations.

Another game, released in 2013 and recently released on new platforms, is “Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.” This is a third person adventure overseeing two brothers on a journey to save their sick father by collecting waters from the Tree of Life. The two brothers have different abilities which, luckily, go hand in hand. Naia, the older brother, is able to help Naiee do things like pull levers and boost him up to higher places and levels so he can squeeze and sneak through smaller places. The player must figure out ways to work with the brothers to perform many different functions to get to their destination.

If you enjoyed “Mad Max,” the popular action packed film, you can now be a part of the story. On Sept. 1, “Mad Max” was released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. The game is based off the film series, but was not planned to have relation to the films itself because pieces of the game were taken from the “Mad Max” universe. It is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, using mostly vehicular-based combat. There are many obstacles for Mad Max to work through, including being robbed of everything he owns.

A new magical little world opens up for us. From the makers of “Little Big Planet,” PlayStation 4 is given an exclusive adventure into a world of paper in the new “Tearaway Unfolded” on Sept. 8. Throughout the game you battle a quest with Atoi the Messenger to deliver a top secret message. The game features are exclusive to PlayStation4 because the actions in the game are based around the “Dual Shock 4.” So make use of your touchpad and catch and throw things back at the game, because you are in it!
