Six must-see weekend plans: ‘Tribes of Europe’, ‘Capcom Arcade Stadium’, ‘X-Factor’ and more
If you let yourself be carried away by our recommendations for the weekend, a couple of quite violent days await you– Rescuing helpless mutants, post-apocalyptic or recalling the good old days of pixelated savagery. In any case, you can do it comfortably and keeping your skin safe thanks to the six plans that we have selected for you.
Without a doubt, the most chilling thing about the new film by Michel Franco (winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Young Jury Prize at the last Venice Film Festival) is how frighteningly credible it is. Its development is planned with a classic narrative of suspense and tension, but his story of a rebellion of the less favored classes that devastate a wealthy wedding and they turn the the state of the country seems almost a television news program. Daring and politicized, but at the same time ambiguous and without positioning itself clearly, ‘New Order’ is a dystopia that takes place in two days. If it hasn’t started this morning.
‘Tribes of Europe’
The Producers of ‘Dark’ pose a post-apocalyptic world at the end of the 21st century with elements that we have seen in fictions such as ‘The 100’. Here, humanity is divided into three great tribes, now at war. One of them wants to remain isolated away from the cities, but the landing of a flying object on their territory will force them to get involved in the conflict. A story of ambition and violence set in uncivilized environments, and that give us a possible new bombshell of the platform.
‘Capcom Arcade Stadium’
It is not the first time that Capcom publishes a compilation of greatest hits, not even the first time in this format of game bundles that are sold separately and run in a common environment (often with references to the golden age of arcade games). In this case, 32 impepinable landmarks of the medium, among which it is difficult to highlight one: ‘Street Fighter II’, ‘Final Fight’, ‘Strider’, ‘Captain Commando’ … and for you to taste the song, a gift: ‘1943 – The Battle of Midway’.
- Now available for Nintendo Switch
The indie treat of the week is this modest but frenetic arcade game with pixelated aesthetics and shattering pace that pays tribute to the classics of yore. From ‘Spy Hunter’ to ‘Afterburner’, passing through ‘Zaxxon’, everything has a place in this turmix that aims to curl the eyelashes of the respectable based on feverish speed and chiptunera soundtrack. It is signed by Gamechuck and Chorus Worldwide Games.
- Ya disponible para PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series y Switch.
‘Open Grave’ (Joe Hill)
Joe Hill has long since earned his place in modern horror literature without bragging about being a father, and perhaps that’s why he already signs half-stories with Stephen King with some frequency. In this compilation published by Nocturna there are some, such as ‘In the tall grass’, which Netflix adapted in 2019. But it is not the only story that is terrifying in this volume: doors open to fantastic worlds, truckers involved in dangerous chases, librarians who take readings to the dead and much more.

‘X Factor – Baptism of Fire’ (Roger Stern and others)
Before the arrival of Rob Liefeld, Cable and Deadpool, X-Factor was a very different group. In its beginnings, they were none other than the original X-Men, before the arrival of Wolverine, camouflaged as mutant hunters to actually save them from human hatred and misunderstanding. Featuring newly resurrected Jean Gray, Cyclops, Beast, Angel and the Iceman, this volume that compiles the group’s early adventures also features the first appearances of Apocalypse.
