Stranger Things: The Game re-imagines the Netflix TV show, set in 1984, as a 1980s videogame. How meta, you might think. but it works.
You take on the role of gruff Officer Hopper, trying to uncover a mystery at the heart of Hawkins, Indiana. As you work your way deeper into the game, you gradually find new characters, each with individual powers that are vital for further progression.
This pixelated adventure game looks the part (despite not being quite as retro as games of the period), and offers an entertaining mix of straightforward puzzling (find an object; put it somewhere specific), and gleefully punching local security forces when they get in your way.
Well, it is set in the 1980s – you’re not supposed to solve mysteries with brainpower alone.

Other games news: Games are, more often than not, escapist power fantasies about taking on a superhuman role and doing things that would be impossible in any other context. That makes The Stillness of the Wind all the more striking. It’s a game that gradually takes away your choices, inexorably leading you to your own final breath.
In The Stillness of the Wind, you play as Talma, who tends to her goats and her garden on a remote patch of land. She’s living through her final days as she always has, as a subsistence farmer living off the crops she can raise and the cheese she makes from her goats’ milk. It’s the end of the world.
Developer Memory of God says The Stillness of the Wind begins with a kind of sandbox-like freedom, where you’re given the ability to explore the game’s world and its systems however you like. But as time moves ever forward, Talma starts receiving increasingly upsetting letters from her friends and family who have moved away from her village to live in the big city.
After years of development and multiple delays, Microsoft’s next big exclusive, Crackdown 3, launches this week–and you can play it for only $1 if you meet a few requirements.
As a first-party game, Crackdown 3 is free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. And right now, Microsoft is offering an one-month Xbox Game Pass trial for only $1. The catch is that you need to be a new subscriber to enjoy the savings.
Xbox Game Pass already has “millions” of subscribers, but if you’re not among them, right now seems to be a good time to jump in. You can sign up for Xbox Game Pass on the Xbox website or through your console.
Crackdown 3 is coming to Xbox One and PC, but Xbox Game Pass is only on Xbox One right now. It could come to PC and other platforms down the road, but no announcements have been made as of it. Crackdown 3 launches on February 15.
Developer Respawn believed that it was “putting a lot on the line” with the surprise launch of Apex Legends, but it looks like the decision was the right one: just three days after launch, the game has reached 10 million players. Fortnite, in comparison, took two weeks to hit the same milestone.
“We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch,” Respawn CEO Vince Zampella wrote in a blog post. “But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it, too.” In addition to the overall player count, the developer also says that Apex has already reached 1 million concurrent players.
