Faeria is a solid card game that has enough depth, and unique features to make it standout in a overcrowded genre, despite a low total number of cards, the vast singleplayer options here, coupled with a generous economy, and very interesting mechanics makes this one of the better games in the genre.
Hades' Star Review
Hades’ Star game is solidly built, the soundtrack is a bit boring, but there’s really nothing overly offensive about it. The question is whether or not you’re willing to put in the time. I’m concerned with how little there is for you to do during those sessions where you’re doing nothing more than trying to earn money but at the end of the day, it’s a nice way to take a break from computer work and video editing like I did during the making of this review.
The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia Review
In The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia, there’s an attempt to tie the act of typing with real-time bullet hell dodging action in an arguably innovative manner. Whether it fails or succeeds really comes down to how well the player adapts to controls that came about through a notable design compromise.
The Eternal Castle Review
Indie games come in all forms. Some try new and innovative ideas, some refine established formulas, and some call back to the past. The Eternal Castle is a bit different; it calls back to a past that actually never was. It’s a remaster of a game that only exists in the imaginations of its developers.
For an old nostalgic soul like myself, Dusk is great. It’s simple, elegant, and succeeds exactly in what it sets out to do. Gamers who grew up in the HD era with an entirely different set of mechanics and gaming conventions will likely find it archaic, perhaps excruciatingly so. However, for those yearning for their glory days, or those who want to see what gaming used to be like in the early 1990’s, Dusk is certainly for you.
Planet Coaster World's Fair DLC Review
World’s Fair is probably a must-have for Planet Coaster aficionados and for anyone who eventually wants to access creations made with it in the Workshop. Like Cities: Skylines, with each new expansion Planet Coaster just establishes itself that much more firmly as the game to beat in its niche.
Don't Starve: Hamlet Review
Don’t Starve: Hamlet is a no-brainer recommendation for Don’t Starve fans. It likely won’t win over anyone who previously rejected this series, but this refreshing combination of humor, creativity, and challenge is sure to delight the long time fans who are hungry for more.
Killer7 is a work of art that surprised many in the past. Now that it’s been remastered for the PC, a lot of new players and old fans alike can finally experience the game in gorgeous high definition. Personally, the game has always been a landmark title to me that set a creative standard that has yet to be topped.
The shoot'em up genre has always been somewhat difficult for me to really get into. It’s often dedicated to pattern recognition, intense challenge, and repeatedly dying until you get it just right. The amount of devotion required to beating a lot of these games has resulted in a high barrier to entry. ZeroRanger bucks this trend in a manner suitable to its Buddhist themes.
CrossCode is the very definition of a passion project as it was painstakingly developed over a span of seven years, and it really shows. The game is filled to the brim with content, including a lengthy story campaign, diverse enemy designs, and many side quests. It really has a lot of bang for your buck.
