Star Trek: The Lower Decks: The Badgey Directive

I had really hoped for more from this game, and while it has a really nice wrapper on it, it’s essentially the same exact game as “Star Trek: Fleet Command” in which you are incessantly checking on timers that are counting down at a set rate to unlock credits to unlock a longer lasting timer, which in turn unlocks an even longer timer.  The game play mechanic is tired and absolutely unsuccessful at capturing my attention, so this one’s gone into the trash bin.

Fat Princess

Fat Princess is a multiplayer game for up to 32 players, with the basic goal of rescuing the Princess and bringing her back to the team’s base, a twist on capture the flag. Capture the flag, but with problematic themes!  It’s a well enough PS3 game, the second of which that I played on Monday during my twitch stream, but at the very end of the stream Sir Mixalot’s “I Like Big Butts” came on and I’m pretty sure that i’ll get a DMCA strike against my account if I like to that, and would you believe that in 2022...

Resistance 2

Resistance 2: Directed by Brian Hastings. With Troy Baker, David Boat, Emerson Brooks, Dan Brown. The Chimera have launched a full scale invasion on both the east and west coasts of the United States. Hale joins a special task force group put together by the SRPA, who are also resistant to the Chimera virus. Due to a fun quirk of how my day job is letting us work, I now have Mondays off, and I’ve decided that Mondays are going to be days that i work on my video game backlog, starting with the consoles that I’ve owned for years...

Generation Zero

Sweden. 1989. When the residents of Östertörn wake to find robots on the rampage, winning becomes living. Alone or with up to three friends, sneak, scavenge and shoot your way to safety across a vast, varied landscape that is as intriguing as it is deadly. I found the concept cool and they had a fantastic sale, it was only $6! This is much more of a pondering, lingering game than it is an extreme battle for supremacy over a robot horde, but even with how long it can be between encounters with enemies, it’s still best played with a full...

Warhammer: Vermintide 2

The critically acclaimed Vermintide 2 is a visually stunning and groundbreaking melee action game pushing the boundaries of the first person co-op genre. Join the fight now! I have a gaming buddy that really enjoys games set in this time period with older cross bows, long bows, swords, and maybe a flint lock. For that, this is a pretty good game, lots of exciting stuff happens. I don’t particularly like that type of game and need something with spaceships or lasers or something futuristic, and it’s just not here. Buy On Amazon!

Watch Dogs 2

Watch Dogs 2: Directed by Danny Bélanger, Jonathan Morin. With Ruffin Prentiss, Shawn Baichoo, Tasya Teles, Jonathan Dubsky. In San Francisco, hacker Marcus Holloway joins DedSec, to take down a corrupt system by fighting and hacking his way trough the entire San Francisco Bay. Me and a buddy tried doing this co-op and we had some problems figuring out if the game was even co-op to begin with. It is, but it really isn’t. It’s a pretty game that I just don’t have the energy to try playing any more. Buy On Amazon!

Aliens: Fireteam Elite

Aliens: Fireteam is a new three-player co-op PvE shooter set in Ridley Scott’s Aliens universe. It’s due out in Summer 2021 for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, and Xbox One. Better than what I hear the Colonial Marines game was (I own that one, but still haven’t had the motivation to play it), but it’s still pretty rough around the edges and you can see the limits of their budget every time you go ‘talk’ to one of the in-game NPCs, as the devs opted to not include mouth movements, just a character standing there while the voice overs...

Remnant: From the Ashes on Steam

The world has been thrown into chaos by an ancient evil from another dimension. As one of the last remnants of humanity, you must set out alone or alongside up to two other survivors to face down hordes of deadly enemies to try to carve a foothold, rebuild, and retake what was lost. I really enjoyed the base game, the core gameplay loop of entering into an area, killing all the bad guys, then moving on was well done and the fighting feels tight and well done. Sadly, the base game is pretty short, taking me and a buddy only...

No Man’s Sky

No Man’s Sky: Directed by Sean Murray, David Ream. With Rutger Hauer, Steve Malpass. Explore and survive in a procedurally generated universe with 18.4 quintillion planets. As they say in the business, this game is a mile wide, but one inch deep. It’s pretty at times and most of the mechanics work pretty well, but the story is non-existent and there’s little to no push to go out and do anything in the procedurally generated universe they want you to explore. I’m happy I was able to try this on Game Pass for PC, which I got for free for...
