Team Picks is our monthly feature where members of the team get together to tell you about their most anticipated games of the upcoming month.
Murdered: Soul Suspect – This one was a pretty easy one though I fear it’s for all the wrong reasons. First of all, there’s little to nothing else that really interests me in June. Second of all, the game reminds me a lot of Ghost Trick, a DS title that had a similar premise, but the creative officer at Airtight Games insists that they play completely different.
I’m just looking for something to play that isn’t victim to a diluted focus between single player and multiplayer. Single player only experiences like Wolfenstein: The New Order have given me so much fun lately, so I’m excited to dip my toes into Murdered for a similar reason. I hope it’s as well focused as I’m expecting it to be.
While I am a little bit sceptical of Airtight Games’ output – games with great premises but flawed execution – I feel like Murdered will still deliver. The setting of Salem is unique, the characters look interesting and I’m just really keen to see how the concept of the game plays out. As a disclaimer, I’m going in completely blind on this one, so there’s little to nothing that I actually know about it beyond it’s simple premise.
