Nights Into Dreams

LSD in video game form? What the fuck did I just play? half the buttons don’t work and there’s no damn story. It’s actually THIS MONTH’s game with gold on the X-Box One. Seriously! A game from over 20 years ago! With buggy buttons and graphics that have not aged well at all. MS is on some drugs!

Perfect Dark

A first-person shooter that mixes spy and sci-fi, Perfect Dark is both a thoroughly engrossing one-player experience and a riotously fun multiplayer romp. Easily one of the best games of its genre on any video game console, this long-awaited follow-up to GoldenEye 007 is a must-have for Nintendo 64 owners–and a damn good reason to be one if you’re not. I guess we’re too far removed from the generation that Perfect Dark comes from for me to really make a good connection with this. The game is rough and the story is limited and the VO work is just unfortunate. I wasn’t able to...

Doki Doki Literature Club

The Literature Club is full of cute girls! Will you write the way into their heart? This game is not suitable for children or those who are easily disturbed. This game is not suitable for children or those who are easily disturbed or anyone that has sensitivities to topics like murder, suicide or self harm. The game is only about 2, maybe 3 hours long, and man does it get dark at times. I nearly fell asleep during the first hour, but it’s building a world that’s important for the back half of the game. Free on Steam, for now...

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...

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.

Set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2, this is a story full of Borderlands’ trademark humor, following two adventurers on their quest for greatness.You’ll play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle. Thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is...

Slime Rancher

Slime Rancher is a life simulation game video game developed and published by Monomi Park. The game was released as an early access title in January 2016, with an official release on Windows, macOS, Linux, and Xbox One on August 1, 2017. I own this for both Steam and X-Box One, I played the XB version, which unfortunately is the worse of the two versions, with some pretty considerable issues that pop up from time to time, namely the framerate and the edges of the screen being cut off. I’d bet that the frame rate issue will never be solved...
