Game Hype: Balatro, Jackbox Naughty Pack, Lorelei and the Laser Eyes, Game Scent P.U. & More

Last week it was Hades II, this week, we're totally into Balatro, a rouge-lite deck-building card game. It might look like Poker, but it isn't. It's a totally addictive game that has you unlocking different cards that give you more than an unfair edge to make enough bank to beat the score. And, it does look like it was made for a 16-bit console. 

Highest recommendation to get into as something to play with downtime or just get lost in.

Balatro is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.

News on this came out a little while back, but it's funny to ponder what will be in the pack. Jackbox Naughty Pack is the first M rated pack from Jackbox and we wonder what will be in it. It's headed out later this year;does that mean it's taking the place of Pack 11? We're hoping it isn't just older games with a sexy sheen on them.

Lorelei and the Laser Eyes is out now on Switch it's from the same team who gave us Sayonara Wild Hearts. It's a totally killer looking puzzle game.


I tried the GameScent so you don't have to and, trust me, you don't want to

Not the greatest endorsement for the scent spewing gaming device. 

The Rogue Prince of Persia is still coming out in early access May 27th. From some of the people who made Dead Cells.
