UFO super fighter

Do you know the UFO hunter? These claw machines that allow you to get good rewards are a true institution in Japan and are a must for any self-respecting tourist. But the developers of VV-LABO offer us an intriguing diversion here. UFO super fighter is a mix between an action game, a UFO catcher and UFO fights (precisely UFO in English). Facing another player or the computer, you must manage to grab as many objects as possible and drop them on your base. But of course, it won’t be easy since your opponent can attack you to slow you down and score the most points.

rune factory 5

After a release on Nintendo Switch last March, the youngest license of Rune Factory comes to PC. As a reminder, the license mixes RPG elements with life simulation, gardening, and farming. Prized by a niche of gamers, Rune Factory was also designed as a spin-off from Story of Seasons. East rune factory 5 takes you to the border town of Rigbarth, where you, as a SEED Sentinel, must maintain peace and balance. Note that the Nintendo Switch version earned a score of 68 on Metacritic. Although satisfactory, the title was disappointing for many players, especially after such a long wait.
