Summer’s winding down and the first week of August marks a month before we get the big dogs of Fall coming. August starts off fairly strong with a delightful remaster and a new game from a great studio.
This week’s new releases include Tacoma and Patapon Remastered.
Patapon Remastered – PS4 – August 1
A once proud and mighty tribe now lives a bleak life on a desolate frontier driven from their home by an evil adversary. The Patapon tribe used to be powerful warriors until they were defeated and chased out of their home by the Zigoton army.
A fierce warrior spirit lies beneath the Patapons’ adorable exteriors just waiting to be reignited. By taking the role of their God, “the Almighty” you can sound the war drum that will spur the Patapon tribe to war once again. It is up to you to lead the Patapon tribe to re-take their homeland from their enemies.
Patapon Remastered mashes up action and rhythm genres to create a unique gameplay experience. You’ll need to master six different drum beats to lead the Patapons to victory over the Zigoton forces. With over 30 specific missions, you’ll need to utilize different strategies and drumbeat combinations to best your foes.
Patapon Remastered takes advantage of both PS4 and PS4 Pro with 1080p and 4k resolutions respectively with the smoothest lines and textures possible.
Tacoma – Xbox One, PC – August 2
In the year 2088, you are tasked with a mission to explore the Tacoma space station and figure out what happened. This mission requires you to discover the details of how the station’s crew lived and worked.
Thanks to the Tacoma’s digital surveillance system, you can witness and manipulate 3D recordings of important moments the crew experienced on the station. Immerse yourself in what the crew felt and lived to feel like one of the crew yourself.
You can rewind, fast-forward, and move physically through the different scenes in the Tacoma space station. How you look at these moments from different angles and times will help reveal the multiple layers of the narrative.
By exploring the minute details you’ll uncover a story of trust, fear, and resolve in the face of disaster. Along with learning who these crewmembers were and what relationships they formed during their time on the station.
The interactive-narrative of Tacoma is complex. How you interact with it both in a physical and digital sense will inform how these multiple parallel stories form together. What you gain from your time on the Tacoma is up to you. Whether you scour every detail or keep it at a surface level, the narrative forms as a result of your thoroughness.
Tacoma not only lets you learn about its crew, but you can also learn about the year 2088 and how humanity expanded into low-Earth orbit and beyond.
