Fenris Talks About: Three More Gaming Gems You May Not Know About


Going with a more generalized format this time, here's three more games that may or may not have slipped under your radar.



1. The Suffering (and The Suffering: Ties That Bind)
While I think the current state of horror gaming is kinda dead, there's still certainly classics you can play. The Suffering and The Suffering: Ties That Bind are two games that definitely know how to shock and unnerve the player. In The Suffering, you seek the truth as Torque, a man who is sent to prison after allegedly killing his wife and children. It's up to you to uncover the old prison's (and Torque's past) secrets after all literal hell breaks loose. The games are available on PC, Xbox, and PS2.

Overview (The Suffering): Unleashing the horror throughout nine levels, The Suffering features dynamic lighting that illuminates frightening visions of horror-filled exploration and frantic combat sequences. In the dark world of The Suffering, creatures attack from the shadows and emerge from jail cells, chambers, the ground and trees, surprising the player in the most disturbing ways possible. As Torque, the main character, players encounter a cast of uniquely hardened criminals, prison guards and grotesque apparitions.

Jailed for a murder he may or may not have committed, Torque is next in line for execution when apparitions besiege the prison and inadvertently free him. Utilizing more than ten deadly weapons, Torque sets out to uncover his past and unlock the deadly secrets of The Suffering. In the game, players can transform Torque into his monstrous alter ego and unleash the power of his primal fury while battling 12 horrific creatures. Depending on how they play the game, players will arrive at three distinct endings for a unique gaming experience.


2. The Bard's Tale

Not like the original Bard's Tale games in the slightest, join a sarcastic prick called The Bard on a journey to save the land... And acquire loot and coin along the way! Available on PS4, PC, Xbox, PS2, and mobile.

Overview: The Bard's Tale is an action/role-playing game in which the player takes on the role of the Bard, a sardonic and opportunistic musician and adventurer, driven by carnal rather than noble pursuits. The Bard is not interested in saving the world, his humble motivations are strictly coin and cleavage.

3. Postal Redux

Postal Redux is a modern reimagining of Running With Scissors' 1997 cult classic Postal with a new coat of paint and a shiny new engine. Everything has an upgrade in this twin stick run and gun. Plus you can buy the game for only 2 dollars on the RWS website! PC only, as the PS4 version was cancelled.

Overview: The classic dark and surreal twin-stick isometric shooter returns with a vengeance!
POSTAL Redux is a high definition remake of The Postal Dude's infamous first foray into the world. Prepare to experience his psychological journey with faithfully recreated high resolution visuals, remastered music, sounds, and dialog, and revamped and modernized gameplay. Crazed gunmen out for your blood await you around every corner. The only choice is clear: Get them before they get you. Fight back with a devastating arsenal as you make your way through a violence-stricken town.
It's time to relive the madness of GOING POSTAL!
