With the world in a glass case of emotions during COVID-19 quarantines, ID@Xbox is offering a bit of sunlight in the gloomier times. Available now until July 27, Xbox owners can download more than 70 demos to try up-and-coming indie games. I was able to play some over the past few hours and so far, four absolutely grabbed me and have me waiting for release dates. Check out the four below:
With the announcement of Ms. Marvel joining the playable list of characters in Marvel’s Avengers, Square Enix seems to have finally presented a slew of new information to get more players excited about their upcoming game. During New York Comic Con 2019, I was able to go hands-on with the introductory mission to Marvel’s Avengers. Though I was expecting a lukewarm demo, I was happily impressed by the gameplay mechanics, hints of the future, and ending trailer showcasing more of the game that is to come.
Panda Cult Games is a dynamic, charismatic, and enthusiastic small company with obviously passionate team members. With their successful board game, Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay, it’s not a wonder why Yacht Club Games entrusted the crew to create a tabletop adventure based on their beloved franchise, Shovel Knight.

It seemed lady luck shined her light on me because I got a beta code much to my surprise. When I say surprisingly I mean it because friends I know who are the biggest fans of fighting games did not get one, I was the only one they knew who actually got one.
