Disc Jam by High Horse Entertainment is best described as a pong/tennis game using a frisbee. Just like in tennis, there are 1v1 Singles and 2v2 Doubles matches. Instead of using a ball and racket, players launch a giant frisbee at each other until one player misses and concedes the goal.
The Council is a new narrative-based game that looks to upend the tropes that such games have falle into. With an emphasis on character development and choice permanence, it infuses the genre with some RPG elements. Depending on how the rest of the five episode series goes, The Council right now is shaping up to be a wonderfully intriguing title with more replay value than the traditional narrative videogame experience.
Cyberdimension Neptunia: Four Goddesses Online is a spin-off of the Cyberdimension Neptunia series which focuses on the four main goddesses (or CPUs) of the world of Gaminindustri playing the beta of a new MMO. If you haven’t met these characters before, never fear, throughout the game main character Neptune will fourth wall break to introduce you to each character. In addition to Neptune, there’s Vert, the competitive MMO player, Blanc, the caring-but-occasionally-angry healer and Noire, the slightly insecure cosplayer. Neptune also introduces the players to the supporting cast, but unfortunately, a large portion of what she tells you is often about the character's looks, not particularly helpful, given the player can already see them.
Gravel sees Milan-based racing enthusiasts and developers Milestone SRL come back to the off-road and showcase their expertise in a title that favors a more arcade approach to the off-road experience, having an almost Sega Rally Championship vibe fused with a bit of Dirt - two amazing series that I feel sometimes get overlooked on the topic of some of racing's best. Milestone SRL is certainly no stranger to racing titles either. These guys have done nothing but, in fact, giving us majority of the MotoGP and WRC series. While Gravel has some of the best track designs I've seen in a long time that keep it consistently fun, the overall presentation of the game keeps it from becoming a game you should undoubtedly pay attention to.
