Six Exciting Games to Watch Out for in December 2022

What? You thought because we’re near the end of 2022 that, all that video game goodness that you’ve enjoyed throughout the year would stop? Well, I’m happy to inform you that the hits haven’t stopped yet, and December 2022 will close out the year with some of the best games of the year.

Below are several games you should check out before the year ends. December 2022 is here, and it comes bearing several games that you won’t want to miss.

Gundam Evolution (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S) – December 1st

Gundams! Perhaps the best giant robot anime series to ever grace the world is now taking on the team-battler format with Gundam Evolution. Jump into your favorite mecha to capture objectives, put the hurting on the opposing team, and become even better than that guy, Amuro Ray.

It’s like Overwatch, but I think it’s definitely a lot more fun, even if it does turn into rounds of team deathmatch battles because your team doesn’t understand the concept of capturing objectives. Still, it’s Gundam, and that’s always fun. The game features a season pass, in-game currency that lets you purchase skins, stickers, and other cool stuff, as well as new Gundams and mobile suits. With the games’ launch for consoles on December 1st, the game will enter its second season as the game has been available on PC for several months, and with it will come the Nu Gundam unit.

Sadly, there won’t be any cross-play between the platforms.

The Callisto Protocol (PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC) – December 2nd

Did you enjoy Dead Space? Are you looking forward to a new game to scare the shit out of you? Well, The Callisto Protocol is looking to be that game. Stuck on the moon of Jupiter, players will attempt to survive in the Black Iron Prison while lots of grotesque creatures roam around, while a madman who runs the place has an agenda that involves you. Everything that we’ve seen, screams Dead Space x 100000000.

Which makes sense, as The Callisto Protocol comes from the mind of Glen Scholfield, who worked on the Dead Space series, and was part of the Visceral Games studio before Electronic Arts foolishly closed the developer down.

If you enjoyed Dead Space, or Resident Evil (only the good games), then you’ll likely want to check out The Callisto Protocol when it releases this month.

Need for Speed Unbound (PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC) – December 2nd

Fans that like fast cars, and the ability to soup them up will be happy to know that Need for Speed is back. The iconic racing series is not only back, but Criterion Games is also back at the helm, and the game has been a pleasure to play. The upgrade system will excite car fans, as you can upgrade every aspect. Paint, body kits, engine mods, and lots more. This is the Need for Speed game you’ve been waiting for, and it’s almost here.

There’s not much to say about a racing game, it’s all about experiencing the game, but after having some hands-on with the title (Thanks EA), it’s like Need for Speed Underground, and that’s a good thing. Oh, and the game has 143 different cars to play with, and there are lots more on the way.

Marvel’s Midnight Suns (PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC) – December 2nd

When Lilith, the Mother of Demons is resurrected, all life on Earth is threatened by her demonic hordes. Playing as “The Hunter,” a new customizable hero, you’ll do battle against Lilith’s fearsome army, which includes possessed versions of the Hulk and Venom in a Marvel game that’s unlike anything we’ve had before.

What separates Marvel’s Midnight Suns from other Marvel games is its genre. Where most superhero games are set within the action genre, requiring you to beat up anything within fifty yards of the hero you’re playing, Midnight Suns takes a different approach. Developed by Firaxis games, the developers behind X-COM, an RTS set during an alien invasion, Midnight Suns is a game in the same vein but with a card battler twist.

You create your character, assemble a team of your favorite Marvel heroes such as Blade, Magik, Spider-Man, Wolverine, etc. and then confront Lilith’s forces in RTS battles. As your heroes engage in combat, you’ll attack or defend your team using a set of cards in your hand. Making an RTS Card Battler is always a risky move, and even moreso when you think about applying those mechanics to a Marvel game. However, the deep dives they’ve shown us leading up to the game’s release have offered a glimpse into what seems like an intricate and deep card system. The one thing we can say for sure is, if anyone can pull this move off, it’s probably the madmen over at Firaxis.

Dragon Quest Treasures (Nintendo Switch) December 9th

Square Enix has a passion for milking its IPs, and Dragon Quest Treasures is yet again another attempt to drain your bank account. Which the success of Dragon Quest XI S, Erik makes his return with his sister Mia, with players exploring the island of Draconia, recruiting monsters, and attempting to dig up buried treasure.

Of course, it won’t be as easy as it sounds, as there will battles, and finding those hidden treasures won’t be as easy as it sounds. You won’t be the only one series for treasure, and other rivals will be doing their best to stop you during your journey. The game looks cutesy, and while it may not sound as interesting as it sounds, fans of the series should be on the lookout for the title.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Reunion (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, PC) – December 13th

Final Fantasy Reunion Crisis Core VII

With the hype of Final Fantasy VII- Rebirth only a year away and showing off some of the stories, including Zack Fair, now is the perfect time for a remaster of Crisis Core, with Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Reunion. Crisis Core was a game originally released on the PSP that showed off the hardware of the little handheld device. Not only are we getting a remaster of the game, but it is by far one of the most ambitious remasters of a game yet. We have new lines of dialogue, entirely new models made for the game as well as new music, and an entirely new cast for the characters. We could even experience the tragedy of Nibelheim in 4K quality. There are changes to the game combat in terms of balance and added features. There is a whole lot to this game, and it already was one of the best side stories to a Final Fantasy game of all time.

Hopefully, this gives more eyes to the fantastic character of Zack Fair. This game also gives us some added stories behind Shinra, Soldier, and the Turks that let us see even more of the corruption of Midgar. There is a lot to love in this game: the narrative, the combat, the dialogue, and the side content. Hopefully, we get better voice acting in this version than in the PSP one! It is time to see the beginning and the motivation surrounding the events that led up to Final Fantasy VII in the best way possible, current gen!
