Master movie assassin John Wick might seem like the ideal subject for a frenetic murder-fest, but John Wick Hex tries a different approach: it’s a strategy game with grid-based combat—sort of a “John Wick chess,” as developer Mike Bithell originally pitched the concept. Right now, the physical release is marked down from $30.

Just released today, Ubisoft’s Immortals Fenyx Rising is an open-world adventure inspired by Greek mythology as much as it is Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Saints Row began life as a fairly bland Grand Theft Auto clone, but over the course of the franchise has become much weirder and thankfully also much more wonderful. Here’s the official synopsis for Saints Row IV, just to give a taste of what to expect:

“The Boss of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States but the Saints are just getting started. After a catastrophic alien invasion of Earth, led by the evil Overlord Zinyak, the Saints have been transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. With homies new and old at their side, and an arsenal of superpowers and strange weapons, they must fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp.”
