Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando

Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando: With James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye, Jim Ward, Rodger Bumpass. After saving the galaxy two years ago, Ratchet and Clank are recruited by the director of antother great enterprise, called Megacorp, in order to recuperate a robbed experiment in a far away galaxy. Made for the ps2, remastered for the ps3, then played about 10 years after I bought it, this sequel is much better in every way than the first game. Ratchet isn’t mean to his sidekick, the new weapons are fun, and the plot is still dumb but acceptable. My one complaint is...

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.

Ico

Ico: Directed by Fumito Ueda. With Kazuhiro Shindou, Rieko Takahashi, Misa Watanabe. On a distant island, there is a legend that anyone born with horns will bring about calamity. When such a boy is locked away in a fortress, he must work together with a girl named Yorda to flee before they can be claimed by the spirits. Played on the PS3 as part of the “The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection”, I bought this back in September 2015, it sat on multiple shelves for about 7 years, never being opened or even paid much attention to, which...

Ratchet & Clank

Ratchet & Clank: Directed by Perelandra Beedles. With Mikey Kelley, David Kaye, Jim Ward, Kevin Michael Richardson. When an evil chairman’s moneymaking scheme puts the entire galaxy at stake, the only ones who can stop him are the unlikely duo of a lone mechanic and a defect war machine but can the galaxy really be saved when the duo can’t get along? I should point out that I played the remastered version on the PS3, which is slightly better than the PS2 version from my understanding. I purchased a whole collection of Ratchet games back in 2016 for a total...

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...

Journey

Journey: Directed by Jenova Chen. A robed figure in a desolate world undertakes a journey towards a distant, glowing mountain. The second game of my PS3 backlog mission, this one I got for free back in April of 2020, though it was originally published in 2012, if you can believe that. I had set aside about 4 hours for the game on Monday, but turns out that I didn’t need the full allotment, ‘finished’ it in about 2 hours. Don’t believe me? Here’s the stream: www.twitch.tv/videos/1510316328 I have the word in quotes because this isn’t necessarily a game that gets...

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...

Satisfactory on Steam

Satisfactory is a first-person open-world factory building game with a dash of exploration and combat. Play alone or with friends, explore an alien planet, create multi-story factories, and enter conveyor belt heaven! I’ve played about 15 hours of this world building game and while I’m no where near done with it, I have enough of a feel for the game to give it a strong recommendation with some very slight caveats. I got the game as a part of the Humble Bundle for Ukraine, which was only $40 for a large list of games, including Back4Blood, so the price was...

Kingdom Two Crowns on Steam

In Kingdom Two Crowns, players must work in the brand-new solo or co-op campaign mode to build their kingdom and secure it from the threat of the Greed. Experience new technology, units, enemies, mounts, and secrets in the next evolution of the award-winning micro strategy franchise! A game without a User Interface, but fantastic concepts and soundtrack. It’s way too short though, but well worth your time if you’re into chill games that you can just vibe to. Buy On Amazon!

Grim Dawn on Steam

Enter an apocalyptic fantasy world where humanity is on the brink of extinction, iron is valued above gold and trust is hard earned. This ARPG features complex character development, hundreds of unique items, crafting and quests with choice & consequence. I first started playing this about 3 years ago, finished the first level then promptly forgot that I was playing it. Luckily, I got back on the Grim Dawn horse and continued it as a result of needing a co-op game to play with a buddy on my Twitch stream, to much success. At first glance you’d be forgiven to...
