Saints Row

Some seven years after the last installation of Saints Row (Gat Out of Hell, ed.) by Volition, The new Saints Row invites us into the fictional city of Santo Ileso in the heart of the American Southwest. In this crime-stricken world, a group of friends set out on their criminal venture. Attempt to make your crime organization (The Saints) the best in the business, fighting other lawless crime groups for power and dominance. Saints Row tells a brand new story with a new lineup of characters. You play as the “Boss,” and together with your allies, try to rise to the top of the criminal world.

Saints Row now boasts a much larger, more varied sandbox, acting as the first Saints Row game to combine both urban and scarce suburban zones. Dundle thinks this is a welcome addition to expand the landscape compared to previous versions of the game. The more to explore the better. This installation of the Saints Row series promises hours of entertainment as you seek to earn cash and buy business plots to set up your criminal organization in any way you please. With so many customizable aspects like characters, vehicles, voice, clothing, and more, the freedom in this iteration of Saints Row reaches unprecedented levels. If that isn’t enough, the entire campaign can be played co-op, so sit back and enjoy with friends on any criminal mission the game offers. A great addition if you ask us, because what's better than Saints Row? Exactly, Saints Row with friends!

Two Point Campus

Two Point Campus is a management sim game that offers you the chance to reform education in your image. Build your university, hire the staff you deem fit, run the academic institution, and make it the best in the country. The academic year begins with summer vacation, so prepare for the incoming students and help get them labour-market ready. All study and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so spice things up and keep an eye on student satisfaction by introducing various parties, clubs, and study associations. Education is the key to success, and you are here to help students on their way. Whether it is courses to become a knight or gastronomy, motivate the students whether they protect or feed. Dundle’s Tip: when designing your university, remember to create friendly recreational and social spaces because students are the lifeblood of any university, and it will promote student satisfaction.

Spider-Man Remastered

Insomniac Games in collaboration with Marvel are revamping their award winning game. They are set to release Spider-Man Remastered for the PC. Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man may be a little different than what you remember from the movies, as this game lets you explore New York City through the eyes of a more experienced Spider-Man. We love all things Marvel over here at Dundle, so we are excited to see how this Peter Parker evolves the character arc. Peter Parker must balance his frantic personal life with tackling the many obstacles the iconic villains provide for him. After eight years behind the mask, embody the skillset Parker has developed with improvisational combat, dynamic acrobatics, and environmental interactions. New York City is your playground, and my spidey senses tell me this game will be a hit.

Cult of the Lamb

You may have heard about the term, the sacrificial lamb, well luckily for you a stranger saves you from an unfortunate demise. You must repay your debts by forging a large cult following in his name in Cult of the Lamb. In a land of false prophets, you must venture out in mysterious regions and gain support in spreading your message. Perform dark rituals to satisfy the Gods and give sermons to maintain your strength in your flock. Rise to the top, battle enemies, and defeat other neighboring cult leaders to become the one true cult. Cult of the Lamb requires you to cleanse the non-believers and become the mighty lamb God.
