Jotun: Valhalla Edition

Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology.In Jotun, you play Thora, a Viking warrior who died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. Impress the Gods! Jotun is currently free on both Steam and GOG, it’s not my cup of tea, but maybe someone else might be interested in it? In particular, there’s no tutorial, so good luck figuring out what buttons do what. Additionally the “map” they give you in next to worthless, it doesn’t show where you are or where anything of note is. If you like exploration games,...

The Walking Dead Season Two Video Game

Your decisions and actions will change the story around you Episodic series based on Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic books. You don’t have to play Season One or 400 Days to enjoy Season Two, however we recommend that you do in order to get the most from the story. Season One of The Walking Dead won over 90 Game of the Year Awards. Your decisions and actions will change the story around you Walking Dead Season Two improves on season one, but only marginally. The frustrating pace and odd choices for story decisions are still frustrating, so while I’ll admit that...

Titanfall 2

Step on to The Frontier as a Militia rifleman with aspirations of becoming a Pilot. Stranded behind enemy lines, and against overwhelming odds, you must team up with a veteran Vanguard-class Titan and uphold a mission you were never meant to carry out. I only played this for the campaign, I have very limited interest in the multiplayer, as I got my ass handled to me enough during the first game to realize I’m not the target audience for that kind of thing. The story was great and I got some pretty cool screenshots, though there was a twist in...

The Final Station

Travel by train through a dying world. Look after your passengers, keep your train operational, and make sure you can always reach the next station. Make your way through swarms of infected at each station. Explore mysterious and abandoned stations looking for supplies and survivors. A great looking game with an absolutely amazing story that completely falls to shit in it’s final moments. I can only imagine why this happened, perhaps they ran out of funding or the team was abducted by space aliens. Whatever the reasoning behind it, I was actually hooked until the last 5 minutes, and now...

Halo Wars 2

Real-time strategy makes an explosive return to the Halo universe in Halo Wars 2. Lead Spartans, Warthogs and other classic Halo fighting forces in a brutal war against a terrifying new enemy on the biggest Halo battlefield ever. I bounced off of this several times, the first act is pretty weak with limited story progress and frustrating game play. I apparently stopped playing the last time right before the second cut scene which really gave the game a turn for the better and improved the game play with new units and game mechanics. I really enjoyed the second half of...

Each of them have their own abilities that can be used to solve environmental puzzles. It’s included with a X-Box live subscription as a part of the Games with Gold program. I enjoyed my time with it, though after about a dozen levels I felt like it had overstayed it’s welcome.

Sonic 3

As the first game to introduce us to Knuckles, this Sonic game has a very special place in my heart. For some reason I remember this game much more than either Sonic 1 or Sonic 2, and had completely forgotten how quickly you can get through the entire game if you just keep running through everything. Exploring the maps can easily double your play time, but I think I spend about 3 hours on it this play through?  I remember playing this with my sister playing Tails, we were a great team! Also noteworthy of how I played it: my...
