The title is mainly based on its fluid and visceral combat that allows you to dodge, counterattack and finish your enemies, all accompanied by precise animations because they are made with motion capture. Over time, you unlock new techniques to become more and more devastating. And the good news is that Midnight Fight Express will be available from launch on Xbox Game Pass.

Like No Other: The Legend of the Twin Books

With its extended title, Like No Other: The Legend Of The Twin Books is a point’n’click adventure game in which we follow Dan, a clumsy adventurer who risks everything to solve the legend of the twin books by exploring the abandoned city of Red Pines. In fact, rumor has it that a talented artist reproduced the Book of Spirits so perfectly that museum staff mistakenly forgot the original when evacuating Red Pines. Thus, this dear Dan goes in search of the latter, in a fun and family adventure. A game of short duration since the developers speak of only two hours to see the end of it, but it has something to please with its nice graphics.
