In a series that never fails to deliver, fans should rightfully be excited for this entry.

Thirsty Suitors takes place in the vibrantly colored town of Timber Hills where Jala, the main protagonist, finds herself in a bevy of interesting — if not head-scratching situation. Better yet here’s what the trailer describes it as — “Battle your exes, disappoint your parents, find yourself.”

Wartales – Out Now (Cloud + Console + PC)

Wartales is a well-received open-world turn-based RPG that came out earlier this year. This is a game that lets you explore the massive medieval world, recruit companies, and collect bounties. It’s worth a look for anyone that enjoys this kind of niche game.

Wild Hearts – November 9 (Cloud + Console + PC)

For Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, November brings Wild Hearts via EA Play. Inspired by Monster Hunter, Wild Hearts was reviewed decently well and brought its own twist to the monster-hunting formula. The monsters are interesting, the world is beautiful, and the combat is fun. More than worth the time for anyone itching for a hunting experience. That said, it is allegedly slashing support (thanks PSX Extreme), but what content is there is hopefully here to stay.
