Screenshot Saturday: Child of Light Kills the Bad Guy with a Sonic Boom


It’s two for one day on this week’s edition of Screenshot Saturday. I missed last weekend due to some PC technical difficulties, so prepare yourself for two weeks’ worth of screenshots instead of the usual one!

Child of Light is looking so gosh darn beautiful that I just had to lead off with the latest pretty pictures from the UbiArt-based RPG platformer. A little indie PC game by the name of Kill the Bad Guy jumped out at me as well while sorting through the ol’ backlogged inbox, both for its title and its stark visual style. Sonic Boom also grabs its share of the headline as probably the hottest hot button gaming topic of the week for its…let’s just say questionable character design modifications from what fans are used to from a classic Sonic the Hedgehog game.

What else is there? Well, let’s see. OK, there are new shots from Dark Souls II, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Drakengard 3, and Strider. Namco Bandai (or technically it’s now Bandai Namco) games are strongly represented, particularly on the anime side from the latest Naruto, One Piece, Short Peace, and Tenkai Knights projects. You’ll also want to check out intriguing indies like QBEH-1, VoidExpans​e, Randal’s Monday, and Jetpack 2.

That should give you a good idea of what lies ahead, but there’s a whole lot more to see so I’ll step aside and let you get to it already.
