Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues

Collect artifacts through the game to unlock more than 60 playable characters, including villains and supporting characters; enjoy character swapping and free-play abilities along with two-player drop-in, drop-out cooperative gameplay. I had an absolute blast playing this, I’m pretty sure I got it with Games With Gold last year and it’s been sitting patiently on my xbox since then. I haven’t played the first one, but this one has 3 Crystal Skull story arcs, then one for each of the original movies. The Crystal skull stuff was amazing and fits in with the rest of the LEGO games pretty well,...

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia

Join Nikolaï Orelov in his search for redemption as you journey through an iconic, propaganda art style Russia in 2.5D gameplay. This was a beautiful game with a somewhat interesting premise, all ruined by absolutely confusing and frustrating controls. Not sure why they decided it was a good time to re-invent the wheel, but I gave up after the first level was completed.

WRC 6: World Rally Championship

Authentic: 14 official rallies with the official drivers and teams, 12 Super Special Stages faithfully reproduced on a 1:1 scale, Iconic locations from real events A racing rally game, I would not have even tried it if it weren’t free. I still feel like I wasted my time, as there were no spaceships, nor lasers involved with this game. Plenty of directions to turn left 2, hard right, no break, slow, no slow, hard right, full on. I have no clue what any of that means and it wasn’t included in the tutorial, so no clue what I was supposed...

Back to the Future: The Game

A classic Telltale game that lead to their breakout hits The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Game of Thrones, and Tales from the Borderlands I’ve played through 3/4 of the Walking Dead games, so I’m pretty well over the Telltale formula of just wandering around a scene clicking on things and hoping you figure out the black magic to move the story forward. I know this was the game that launched a dozen other games just like it, but it did nothing for me, so after a single chapter of the first episode I just gave up. RIP TTG,...

Starlink: Battle For Atlas

This is your typical Toys to Life game with some really great twists, the greatest being that you don’t have to buy all the plastic toys and can play it completely digitally. It’s gone through some huge price swings, from $75 all the way down to $20. I cannot suggest this game for anything more than $20, it’s just not worth it for much more than that. After that slight dig and I’ll admit that I bought the base game with the plastic mount, then bought more ships, then bought two more pilots, then went and bought the two exclusives...

Celeste

Brave hundreds of hand-crafted challenges in this super-tight platformer, as you help Madeline survive her journey to the top of Celeste Mountain! Mind bogglingly difficult / frustrating video game that I just don’t have the patience for. After missing a jump for the 20th time, I just gave up on it and uninstalled.

Q.U.B.E. 2

In Q.U.B.E. 2 you play as Amelia Cross, an archaeologist who has awoken among the ruins of an alien landscape. With the distant help of another survivor you must solve the puzzles of this mysterious world and find a way back home. If you’ve played Portal 2, you know what kind of puzzles await you in QUBE 2, a game that was included in the monthly game release for X-Box Games With Gold. It was a fun 8 hour long game with a much more serious story than Portal, but the puzzle elements were on point. There’s no portals per...

Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna)

Play as both Nuna and Fox. Switch between the two companions at any time with one button press, or play side by side in local co-op mode, as you rely on the unique skills of each character to succeed in your quest. Less of a game and more of a sidescrolling, slightly gamified story as told by a village elder with an unintrusive soundtrack. It was short, but blessedly so, no need to labor the point or make it go longer than necessary. Judging from the comments, it’s actually the combination of two different stories. The real interesting part of...

Orwell: Keeping an Eye On You on Steam

Big Brother has arrived – and it’s you. Investigate the lives of citizens to find those responsible for a series of terror attacks. Information from the internet, personal communications and private files are all accessible to you. But, be warned, the information you supply will have consequences. A fun “game” with a mysterious storyline that ends abruptly and with little warning and no way to back up the storyline to see exactly what you clicked on. I loved the interface and the story itself was entertaining. I was able to get to the end of the game in only about...
