Sometimes, you don’t have the time to write a review. You might not even have the time to play the game for long. But you always have time for opinions – opinions about indie games!
Back when I first got into Warhammer 40,000, there were no Craftworld Aedari – just Eldar. But those were the days before desperate copyrighting. It was also a time before Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War‘s latest DLC, Craftworld Aeldari.
Zachtronics makes open-ended puzzle games that may involve programming, visual or otherwise. That’s the reason why I never played any of them – I just can’t see myself writing any code for fun. I also couldn’t see myself playing an Advance Wars-like game. Yet these mad lads somehow made me do it with Möbius Front ’83.
Back when I was a kid, new campaigns for games came with these things called “expansion packs.” Granted, that concept has been absorbed by DLCs, which encompass any and all additional content that’s delivered outside of patches. And as a kid, I missed out on the original Fantasy General. I made up for that by playing Fantasy General II. Empire in Flames DLC is a great addition to the main game.
When you don’t have the time for a full review, you do a review in seven screenshots. This is what I’m doing with Partisans 1941.
Premier robo-animal hunting game Horizon: Zero Dawn came out in the blighted land of the consoles back in 2017. It only reached PC in these the darkest of days. And what can I say, folks? It was well worth the wait. Especially since we got it with The Frozen Wilds DLC from the get go!
Gothic horror is fine and good, but you know what would be even better? Shooting it in the face, as is the video game way. Such is the premise of Alder’s Blood, though it takes into a somewhat anime direction.
Growing up in Lithuania in late ’90s/early ’00s, I fed on a steady diet of action movies and thrillers. I also grew up to be an avid sci-fi nerd. And basically no game captures the nostalgic feeling of those years of gritty action violence like Huntdown.
How often do you see a sci-fi 4X game that’s taking place on another planet and it isn’t a warmed up clone of Alpha Centauri? And how often is it set in a post-apocalyptic setting? Because that’s what you can expect in Shadow Empire: Planetary Conquest.
