If you want to experience the nostalgia of visiting Tokyo, there are few other games that capture the feel of that city like GHOSTWIRE TOKYO, but it's a city devoid of life emptied of the thrum of humanity. This action adventure game set in a world of spirits and magic, is an ambitious departure for Tango Gameworks (THE EVIL WITHIN) but while you can explore much of spooky Shibuya there isn't much motivation to do so, as you find yourself repeating similar tasks over and over. Edmond Tran, Managing Editor of Gameshub joins Mainstream to share thoughts on a game that does a lot of things right, but feels conflicted in it's design.

Deathloop is the new immersive sim by Arkane Lyon (Dishonored, Prey) set in a stylish 1970s themed time loop where you must die and repeat the day to break a timeloop.
