      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Santa Claus Xmas Season 2022, Arcadia Xmas Quest, & Lilly's Saga

      WEEKLY DOSE OF GAMING NEWS: Santa Claus Xmas Season 2022, Arcadia Xmas Quest, & Lilly's Saga

      As Christmas draws near, alongside the New Year, the hype train for retro gaming won’t be slowing down anytime soon. From Christmas-themed games to gamer gear, we’ve been giving you a list and of course, we’ve been checking it twice.

      This time, we got a couple of games specifically tailored for the yuletide season, and one that could be a very nice stocking stuffer—if you can get your hands on it. Stick around, and I’ll give you the lowdown.

       

      Santa Claus Xmas Season 2022

      Christmas comes just about a week early, thanks to Amiten Games, and their season-appropriate title,  'Santa Claus Xmas Season 2022'.

      Amiga owners can rejoice again—especially if you’re a proud supporter of Amiten Games, as this may be a limited release. While the artwork gives a very wholesome, festive feeling, the game itself is more akin to the TRUE Christmas movie—Die Hard.

      Santa, atop a high structure, getting rid of baddies trying to climb up. It’s textbook, McClane! While a relatively small game, it’s chock full of colorful graphics and Christmas music, with quite a bit of unexpected action. It’s the perfect formula.

      In terms of requirements, you’ll need an Amiga 500 to run it. Sounds good? Well, that is, if you can get your hands on it. In any case, Santa Claus Xmas Season 2022 just might be the next big holiday thing.

       

      Arcadia Xmas Quest

       

      From Amiga to Atari, we have another holiday-themed title. 'Arcadia Xmas Quest' by Amarok is a brand new game based on the 1983 title 'Arcadia', and it’s an adventure set in a much more festive winter world.

      And festive it is, complete with the snowy motif, bright holiday colors, and slight shift in tone from your usual Arcadia. Still, it plays just as smoothly as you’d think.

      Amarok has a bit to say about the game: "In Arcadia, the Christmas Mission will find 9 new levels and a new crazy bonus round. You will also be able to hear 9 famous Christmas songs: "Carol of the Bells", "Deck the Halls", "Jingle Bells", "Jingle Bell Rock", "Let It Snow!", "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree "," Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer "," Santa Claus Is Comin 'to Town "and" Sleigh Ride".

      Now, just like the original Arcadia v1.2, the game has regular joystick support, so there’s no need to worry, about whichever model you have. So, if you’re looking to have a more Arcadia Christmas, look no further.

       

      Lilly's Saga

      Lastly, not exactly a holiday-themed title, but more of a potential preorder present if you you’re ever so keen.

      The MSX 2 game 'Lilly's Saga' by Fabulous 8bit is a game that didn't just become a community favorite but also became an absolute champ in Gameplay, Graphics, and Sound in this year’s MSXdev competition.

      Now, you’re probably thinking, what’s the big surprise here? Well, the game already has its digital download version, which is nice. But for the more hardcore aficionados, it’s also getting a BIG BOX EDITION—which, is now available for preorder.

      For those unfamiliar, the game isn't just a take on the classic platformer genre, but it’s a fresh new take on the game itself. Complete with fresh new ideas, and a twist on game elements, it’s worth considering a standalone title. A nice reboot, if you will.

      So yes, if you want to own a nice, physical version of one of the best MSX2 games of 2022, you can reserve a copy at the Côté Gamers website, and check the fine print while you’re at it. The Lilly’s Saga big box edition is currently priced at 45 euros or 47 USD plus shipping. They’re set to come out in 2023, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a nice holiday treat.

      Just extend your holiday, and you’re good!

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News - Chocobo GP, Rainbow Billy & Jack Axe

      Hey Everyone, this is your weekly gaming news!

      We've got a mix of features this week that you should explore for yourself! Three words for this first game: racing, final fantasy, and Switch. The title is Chocobo GP .It's a card game that looks quite a lot like Mario Kart but includes characters from across the Final Fantasy series. Other characters confirmed for the game are Sharoma and Vivi. A lot of the courses will be Final Fantasy inspired and very fitting, as you will be competing against other Final Fantasy characters. You can do this either offline or online like Mario Kart. You will use abilities to knock other racers out in the hopes to reach the finish line first. Now i know it has a lot of similarities to Mario Kart but in Chocobo GP, online tournaments are possible! Competitions with as many as 64 players can happen, the assumption is that these 64 racers will be split into eight groups of eight, with the winners qualifying for an eight person final. No specific date of release for Chocobo GP, only that it's coming to Switch by 2022.

      From one colorful feature to the next ,this is Rainbow Billy The Curse of the Leviathan, a universal coming of age story that explores very relatable themes like empathy compassion inclusion and self-identity. Hopepunk is the exact opposite of Grimdark. Hope Punk games like Rainbow Billy restore faith in the goodness of humanity and send a message that everything is going to be okay. You'll play Rainbow Billy, a fisherman who was out fishing when the evil leviathan cast a spell that washes away all color from the world of imagination. Billy, together with his rainbow-powered fishing boat, try to restore color to the world in a non-violent and empathetic way. Combat in this game equates to dialogue with different creatures. It can appear as a pong-style minigame, where specific symbols have to be hit to create your argument. Winning the creature is over means your team grows with more members to help you save other creatures and restore the world's color. You'll have 60 creatures to collect that vary from cats. walruses, and even unicorns. Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan is now available on PS4 XBox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
