Overcooked! All You Can Eat

Under the premise of saving the Onion Kingdom with the help of stoves and cooking, up to four chefs (with a selection of adorable and simply brilliant character avatars) will have to collaborate to complete orders on time by chopping, frying and plating against the clock. The handling is terribly simple and the difficulty ranges from very basic to making the worst Souls pale.. This version includes the titles Overcooked! and Overcooked!2 along with additional content. Plus, it’s available on all platforms for a very low price.

Hours and hours of fun in the company of a game for all audiences that you can’t go wrong with.

It’s not a party, but Mario and company’s kart racing has been strengthening friendships and relationships for so many generations. also smashing them in salons around the world that cannot be left out of the selection. Piques, laughter and betrayals in a game that has barely changed since its beginnings because it doesn’t need to.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
Crash received his own kart game in a game so clearly inspired that that is precisely why it works so well as the father of the Nintendo genre. CTR Nitro-Fueled completely redeems itself from its past fiascos in other generations to bring a game with all the strength and the spirit of the PS1 original with updated graphics and many, many more characters and tracks.
Just Dance 2023
The most dancers will already know this series of video games that has been with us since 2010. The 2023 edition is a show that refines the experience like never before, with a polished interface reminiscent of streaming services such as Netflix or HBO, where you can give it your all while dancing to the most popular songs with a catalog of 40 songs at its output, which are already more than double.
