Gamers Heroes Holiday Buyer’s Guide 2023 – Shooter Video Games

Immortals of Aveum

An FPS with a magic system? It works in Ascendant Studios and EA’s Immortals of Aveum!

Players will be able to follow the story of Jak as he joins an elite order of battlemages. This isn’t just for show; players will be able to master three forces of magic as they chain attacks and counters. 25 spells and 80 talents are available, along with hundreds of pieces – ensuring players will never be bored.

Immortals of Aveum is a worthwhile and interesting spin on a genre that is renowned for its lack of drive and innovation. It features an engaging and rewarding combat system backed up by an excellent narrative in a fleshed out and immersive fantasy setting that wouldn’t feel at all out of place in a Netflix show.Immortals of Aveum Review, Blaine Smith

Immortals of Aveum is available for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Purchasing options can be found on the official Immortals of Aveum website.

Remnant 2

Third-person shooters meet the world of Soulslike titles once more with the release of Gunfire Games and Gearbox Publishing’s Remnant 2.

After choosing from a number of different character archetypes that each have their own perks, players will be able to wield guns and a melee weapon as they take on “The Root” with up to three players. This is far from the same-ol’ same-ol’; enemy types, region aesthetics, and even boss characters are all randomly regenerated.

I find myself thinking this about a lot of games this year, but in a weaker year Remnant 2 could be a GOTY contender. Don’t hesitate to check it out if you like these types of games.Remnant 2 Review, Johnny Hurricane

Remnant 2 is available for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Purchasing options can be found on the official Remnant 2 website.

Resident Evil 4 Remake


Evil awakens once more with the release of Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 Remake.

A fan-favorite of the franchise, players will follow Leon S. Kennedy as they take on the mysterious Los Illuminados cult and Plagas. Those that rescued the President’s daughter back in 2005 will be pleased to know that this remake completely overhauls the game; new mini-quests, vastly updated graphics, and even modernized combat makes it worth a trip to this rural Spanish village once more.

While I still think the Resident Evil 2 Remake is the king, Resident Evil 4 Remake is still a fantastic game. Fans of Resident Evil or survival horror, in general, should check it out.Resident Evil 4 Review, Johnny Hurricane

Resident Evil 4 Remake is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Purchasing options can be found on the official Resident Evil 4 Remake website.

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon

After a decade of waiting (and plenty of Soulslikes in the interim), FromSoftware returns to the world of mechs with the release of Bandai Namco’s Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon.

These giant hunks of metal are anything but slow, however; this third-person shooter encourages speed and high level play as they step into the shoes of mercenary 621. For those new to the series, expect thrilling action, plenty of firepower, and a cool setting that rivals the best anime series.

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is an absolutely thrilling game, providing a hefty amount of challenge and the tools needed to grow and overcome any threats. Take up this call from Handler Walter – he’s got a new job for you.Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon Review, Casey Scheld

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Purchasing options can be found on the official Bandai Namco website.
