CastleStorm

Enjoy a unique take on medival warfare in Zen Studios’ light-hearted action-strategy game. As rival fortresses attack your own, you’ll use a ballista to fling an assortment of weapons at enemy towers and spear approaching enemies, while sending your own troops and unleashing powerful spells. Battling opposing units up-close as an individual hero nicely balances the ranged combat, and CastleStorm’s goofy characters and richly detailed graphics keep it an enchanting experience throughout. Dusted off a 360 that I had in my office to take with me on a trip and found that I had this game installed on it but...

Starfish (Peter Watts)

A huge international corporation has developed a facility along the Juan de Fuca Ridge at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean to exploit geothermal power. They send a bio-engineered crew–people who have been altered to withstand the pressure and breathe the seawater–down to live and work in this weird, fertile undersea darkness.Unfortunately the only people suitable for long-term employment in these experimental power stations are crazy, some of them in unpleasant ways. How many of them can survive, or will be allowed to survive, while worldwide disaster approaches from below? First in a series of three, very very good. I...

Else Heart.Break()

Else Heart.Break() is a reimagination of the adventure game – a fantastic story set in a fully dynamic and interactive world. Instead of rigid puzzles you will learn (with the help from other characters in the game) how the reality of the game can be changed through programming and how any problem can be solved in whatever way you find suitable. Yet another point and click “adventure game”. This one was boring. Very very boring.

Avernum 2: Crystal Souls

Huge indie fantasy role-playing adventure in a massive, underground land. Packed with over 100 towns and dungeons and an epic story. Fight to complete up to three distinct game-winning quests. Master over 60 spells and abilities. Hunt for hundreds of magical artifacts. Over 50 hours of gameplay. Related story, I recently tried out IRL D&D and learned a fair bit of the gaming system in the few months that I was actively playing with friends. Avernum 2: Crystal Souls uses many of the same core concepts and is a pretty good d20 style RPG. I’m burnt out on the fantasy...

Grav

GRAV is a sand box experience where you explore a multitude of planets, hunt strange alien creatures, build and defend outposts, craft weapons and armor, and attempt to survive against other players in a hostile environment. GRAV shares a name and is losing the SEO battle to a company of the same name that provides smoking devices for smoking enthusiasts. I believe the game is still in early access, and still has a fair bit of work to be done on it. I tried it out because it came in one of those stupid Humble Monthly bundles, and because I...

Year Walk

In the old days man tried to catch a glimpse of the future in the strangest of ways.Experience the ancient Swedish phenomena of year walking through a different kind of first person adventure that blurs the line between two and three dimensions, as well as reality and the supernatural. A walking simulation game with a confusing method of movement and a story that doesn’t interest me at all. Another piece of shovel ware thrown into a humble bundle monthly pack. I didn’t finish it, played just enough to know that I wouldn’t enjoy anything about it.

Bushwick

Stupe (Dave Bautista) and Lucy (Brittany Snow) must navigate through a hail of gunfire and lethal explosions in their Brooklyn neighborhood as Texas attempts to secede from the US in a new civil war. “The Division” as a movie. Want to see a pretty nuanced and impressive performance from Dave Bautistia? This is it! A pretty shallow story but very well shot, there were a few scenes that went on for nearly 5 minutes that didn’t have a single cut, which is impressive after watching a modern action film turn “a man jumping over a fence” into 15 separate takes...

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, which has a good science fiction world with a nice science fiction story that you really don’t want to look too closely at. Luc Benson has a great eye for over the top science fiction civilizations and architecture, and I’m happy to have been on this science fiction ride. SCIENCE FICTION Y’ALL!

Wonder Woman

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny. I stand by that assessment that this movie was great while they were on Themyscira and went down hill from there. Luckily it didn’t fall very far and still ended on a stronger note than any of the other ‘modern’ live action DC films to date.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

The world’s top protection agent has as a new client a hit man who he has been exchanging bullets with for years and he only has 24 hours to get him to The Hague. Everything I hoped it could be, everything I wished it could be. I’m happy to see that Ryan Reynolds is finally back in his groove.
