Lovin Games Weekly – A chance to create a character for one of 2021’s biggest games

Rory Cashin

Your weekly fix of all of the biggest news, releases, and deals in the world of gaming.

Loyal gamers, welcome back!

Once again, we’ve got a big new game, the big new news, and the big special offer of the week.

Let us dive right in!


Curse of the Dead Gods

That title.

That top-down angle.

Those swords and magical abilities.

Yep, it does immediately seem like this is a developer jumping on the Hades bandwagon. That in itself is no bad thing – since Hades was amazing, so why not take some notes from one of the very best games of 2020 – but once you get into the strategy behind the gameplay of CotDG, then you’ll realise there is more going on than a simple copy-paste job.

Essentially, yes, if you loved Hades, then you should love this game as well, but there are enough tweaks to the rogue-like formula to ensure that while the superficial similarities remain, everything beneath the surface feels like a different beast.

Curse of the Dead Gods is available on PS, Xbox, PC, and Switch.

Stardust, one of the most anticipated games on the horizon, will feature a character created by a fan, as the games developers Bethesda are auctioning off the opportunity for one lucky person to leave their permanent mark in the upcoming open-world sci-fi adventure.
