PS4

It was meant to be a routine mission. Escort two scientists to The Pilgrim – a space station studying some anomaly at the edge of the universe. You remember seeing it now. A blinding flash. Alarms. Darkness. And then… the crash. Marooned on a hostile alien world, armed with the standard issue from the escape pod, you set off towards where The Pilgrim came down. Your only hope of getting home is to locate any survivors from the station while keeping yourself alive with precision accuracy.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadow of Valentia

Follow

3DS

In Valentia, battle is waged in the traditions of elder Fire Emblem games, when the rules of battle were simpler, yet the challenge formidable as ever. To stop the war and unify the continent, you'll have to balance the needs of an army of soldiers with unique stats. Play as iconic Fire Emblem character classes, such as Mage, Paladin, and Archer as you bring strategic skills to bear in the challenging grid-based battle system. When you encounter a dungeon on the world map, explore every corner in action-adventure style. You never know what secrets you may unearth.

Quite interested in the Surge from the few streams I've seen of it so far. Going to wait a bit before getting it though.

The Surge does look pretty cool. I'm a little put off by it being a Souls-Like. I'm not good enough or patient enough for that time of game lol
