OK, time for me to get cancelled by one group or another, and thus halve my leadership (to two). This is the weirdest thing on the Steam Next table: Fursan al-Aqsa: The Knights of the al-Aqsa Mosque demo. The game isn’t even on the Steam store anymore (but you can still read the discussions to immediately die).
Back in the day when cutting edge FPS graphics meant having fancier sprites than other guy, Hexen was a notable standout since it gave you spells and magical axes instead of guns. Experience something like that as you follow your sister Into the Pit (demo).
Pssst! Hey kid, you want to shoot some weird fish? Then you’re looking for an old school FPS – one of the many that are cropping up these days – where you get to blast some of New England’s finest abominations. This is the Forgive Me Father demo.
I have burned myself on isometric wandering RPG-type games before. Never the less, Undungeon looked interesting enough, esp. since it’s one of those games where you don’t start as some random dildo. No, you’re so suffused with cosmic meaning that only a handful people of the same type as you exist. So here’s my experience with the Undungeon demo.
Boy, September was an intense month for me. I probably beat the most games in a single month – or at least it felt like it. Here are a few words on the cutest of them – Tails of Iron!
Up until this point, the DLCs for Unity of Command 2 focused on the German victories in early World War 2. They did quite a good job of portraying them as the real fights they were, and not just cakewalks as popularly imagined. Barbarossa was particularly good about showing how spread out and worn down the German forces became when faced with Soviet resistance and vast distances they needed to cover. Unity of Command 2: Moscow 41 DLC actually puts you in command of the Soviet forces that will stretch that attack to the breaking point – and then break it.
It’s decent time for CRPG games. Various indies are picking up where AAA left off (to hunt the DLC and multiplayer fairy). From UnderRail to Colony Ship, we’re spoiled for visions of the post-apocalypse. And in this Encased preview, I’ll make the case that it’s shaping up to be one of the standouts even in this varied arena.
At first, I wasn’t at all excited about the revival of MicroProse. Then I heard they’d be publishing Second Front and Regiments. Now, I’m reviewing HighFleet, and you know what? That’s a good game right there.
When I started this blog, I expected to do more miniature content that I ended up doing. Oh, I’m certainly playing games, painting miniatures, and doing window shopping, I’m just not used to writing about it. But whatever! I recently painted Horus Lupercal for a contest (I didn’t win), so here’s my story.
“Strategy video game with Space Marines” always piques my interest, especially since there’s no good analogue version of that. While I was initially skeptical – Tyranids are racing and disgusting neck with Nurgle for the coveted “most boring Warhammer 40,000 video game opponent” trophy – Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector won me over via good gameplay and obvious craftsmanship.
