Well, folks, it is finally here. We are doing the last stretch of 2022. The fourth quarter is barely a day old but coming to us hard and fast. This year has not been typical in gaming but this month seems like the saviour.

October seems like it will be going a long way towards restoring normality as it hosts a list of pretty impressive titles that will be dropping. There are lots of options and we sample a few of them. Grab your console and dive into something different and fresh.

Lego Bricktales

In this puzzle adventure, you get to embark on an epic adventure across a world of beautiful LEGO diorama biomes crafted brick by brick as you search for inspiration to help your grandfather reinvigorate his rundown amusement park with your little robot buddy in tow. Your journey will take you to the deepest jungle, sun-drenched deserts, a bustling city corner, a towering medieval castle, and tropical Caribbean islands.

 The Last Oricru

This is a story-driven action RPG, that puts you in the middle of an ongoing conflict between two races, on a partly terraformed planet, isolated from outer space by a protective barrier.
