Mass Effect Legendary Edition
Anthem may have failed as a project, dragging Bioware’s reputation through the mud, but the famous and acclaimed game developer not always has been the shell of its former self it seems to be today. Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a perfect testament to Bioware’s complex storytelling and character development, intervening plotlines, and massive, epic scale of space adventures.
Released with updated graphics, 4K visuals, and featuring over 40 DLCs from the entire Mass Effect Trilogy, Mass Effect Legendary Edition still remains the grand space opera from the time when Bioware was a force to be reckoned with. Ride once more with Commander Sheppard and the crew of Normandy to save the universe from extermination. Replaying Mass Effect is like meeting a group of old friends.
Cosmic horror in Dead Space and Alien: Isolation
There may not be many Lovecraftian elements in Dead Space, but the author has invented the cosmic horror genre that continues to terrify audiences throughout the various media: movies, literature, and video games. The fear of the unknown, the isolation, and never knowing what lurks and waits in the dark are the elements of the best cosmic horror crafted by the pen of H. P. Lovecraft. They are also the ingredients that made gamers fall in love with the Dead Space series and Alien: Isolation.
Wandering alone in an abandoned space station with flickering lights and ominous creatures following your every step, sending chills down your spine as even the playing shadows can make you jump out of your seat. Alien: Isolation is still considered a masterpiece of cosmic horror by those who dared to play it, but seems to be evaded by gamers mostly because of the curse bestowed upon the Alien video games. Meanwhile, Dead Space is getting a remake. Before it releases, Moon Landing Sale is the perfect opportunity to experience the best this horror subgenre has to offer with huge discounts.
