Xenon Valkyrie tasks you with the challenge of stopping an evil witch who has horrible plans for the good people, aliens, and robots of your future land. In order to do so, you’ve got to take control of one of three valiant warriors: Renna, who has the power of a rechargeable shield, Nue, a high-jumping space reptile, or Eloen, a bomb-toting robo-vixen.
Overall, Xenon Valkyrie is a sure-win for both rogue-lite action lovers and run-and-gun platform aficionados. The plot is well-represented through the text and world, and comes in intriguing bites and nibbles, and the gameplay is solid with unique weapons and attractive graphics.

de Blob, the colorful platformer of revolution and a color-splattering ball named Blob, is back! Originally released to great acclaim late in the Wii’s life cycle, THQNordic has brought this family-friendly romp to this generation of consoles with updated textures and upscaled custcenes. Grab your controller, and get ready to fight the grey, boring man with a bevvy of graffiti talents!
Just as it was during it’s initial release, de Blob features charming cartoon-esque city-scapes and cute Rabbids-ish characters (minus the unnerving Rabbid faces), in addition to family-friendly gameplay and challenges that are sure to be right for young kids and veteran arcaders alike. The Jet Set Radio wall-clinging gameplay and funky design is wrapped around a 1984 non-conformist rebellion tale, and offers a lot more than most kid-friendly action titles.
