Recommendations of Esports Extras
In this section you can find up to three recommendations of each partner of Esports Extras. What will they have prepared for you?
My colleague Rubén Márquez tells you everything you need to know about three very original, fun and varied games. Beware of his recommendations because you will see them in other publications!
Ghost Trick: Ghost Detective
That nintendo ds he bequeathed us several jewels that stayed to live in our hearts is not something that at this point can reveal to anyone, but if by some chance of fate someone let Ghost Trick: Ghost Detective escape in his day, this is as good a reason as any other to remind you of your mistake. A superb graphic adventure and one of the most original games ever released.
I’ve never been a big fan of dating games, but I must admit that the Barcelona studio won my attention with its spectacular visual display and a most entertaining party game formula. Highly recommended if you are looking for something different to play.
One of those gems that Double Fine gave us with the rise of Xbox Live Arcade along with titles like Stacking or Iron Brigade. A Halloween adventure in which to get costumes, become champions and complete missions with a most endearing artistic style.
Sergio Cejas (Beld)
Sergio Cejas likes vampires and the dark! I tell you everything you need to know about his three recommendations, which cover both single and multiplayer experiences.
You wake up as a vampire, with nothing and thirsty for blood. Your goal in V Rising is to gather strength, build your empire from your castle, and progress through the open world while upgrading your character. You can play both solo and in multiplayer mode.
We return to action-adventure and psychological terror. Put yourself in the shoes of novelist Alan Wake, who seeks to solve the mystery of the disappearance of his wife. The events of his latest novel come to life…even though he doesn’t remember writing it. Light is your best friend.
Vampyr is an action role-playing game set in London, 1918. You are Dr. Jonathan Reid, a newborn vampire and doctor looking for a cure for a disease that is decimating the population.
Juan Sanmartín has it very clear: nothing like the classics to make safe recommendations. He recommends three jewels that you must have in your library yes or yes. Don’t miss them!
This proposal unifies the frenzy of first-person shooters with an atmosphere of supernatural terror silent hill style. A mysterious military force infiltrates an aerospace complex. The elite FEAR team is the government’s response to this attack… but the mission hides much more than meets the eye.
Are Miles Upshura journalist who goes to the asylum in Mount Massive after receiving an email that narrates strange experiments. Asylum and experiments. What can go wrong? The peculiarity of Outlast is that you cannot fight. Your only weapon is a battery-powered night vision camera and your wits to hide.
If you are looking for a platform game to spend Halloween night, this mysterious proposal could be the answer to your search. Its official description reads thus: “Persecuted and alone, a boy finds himself, without eating or drinking it, in the middle of a dark project“.
It was impossible to expect less from Frankie! His Halloween concept is a bit more colorful and cheerful, but no less scary. Bet on family and cinema, among others. He tells you himself.
Luigi’s Mansion 3
Possibly, this is the only game on the list in which instead of suffering you will have a blast and you will even have a laugh, but it is undeniable that Luigi’s Mansion 3 represents that very essence of Halloween celebrations in which the entire community participates. family, including the little ones in the house. Did you know that it even has a multiplayer mode?
One of the best graphic adventures of the legendary Roberta Williams, of the last great stage of the mythical Sierra On-Line and of all time. Phantasmagoria borrows the clichés of haunted mansion movies and novels, and the fact that it was released in 1995 is outrageous. Now he who had retained and, setting aside the presentation of him, still has that that that can only be found in cult classics.
We are not only talking about one of the best video games based on the acclaimed film franchise, it is a true extension of it that will allow us to experience anguish and fear in our own flesh. Alien Isolation is a sci-fi horror game that lends itself to being lived with the lights off and guarantees that kind of substitutes able to stand up.
I’m sure you’ve played all the Resident Evil series and it is more than likely that you have managed to escape from Silent Hill. The next step is to enter the nightmare of Outlast. Red Barrels immerses us in a Survival Horror in the first person with a peculiarity: we have neither weapons nor more help than a video camera with night vision. One that, by the way, always runs out of batteries at the worst time.
Halloween Events in Video Games
I have decided to reserve this section for those games that do not fit into the Halloween category because they do not have elements of terror, paranormal events, zombies, nightmare monsters, etc; but they have themed events that offer unique rewards.
The Headless Horde awaits you, Guardians. Haunted Sectors are now available for the Festival of the Lost!
