My Time at Portia Review

In a gaming landscape littered with building/farming/life sims like Stardew Valley, Harvest Moon or Minecraft, is there a spot for another game eager to suck endless hours of grindy time from your life? Of course, that’s a matter of choice, but My Time at Portia would like it to be your time sink of choice.

Raging Justice Review

There are two kinds of B-grade games. The first have tight budgets and schedules but the developers push their big ideas nevertheless. The result can be a mixed bag but despite the modest production values – or just because of them – these games can be fun. Then there are those titles that are deliberately trash. What they lack, though, is the honesty of real B-grade games, and the results are most often contrived. Guess in which category retro-conscious Raging Justice fits in?

The Escapists

The Escapists is a unique experience in the games industry, and for that reason alone it’s worth giving a shot. However, this isn’t a game that attempts to slide by on novelty alone. There’s real depth and real heart to the game, and even if you have to fight and fail multiple times to discover it, you’ll end up with a funny story to share with your friends for each time that you die. In that way, The Escapists stands among the best sandbox games of the new generation.

Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark

I’m afraid the developers did not fully take advantage of all they could offer us, to the point of insulting my craving for challenge, instead giving me unwanted repetition for the sake of extending the game’s duration. I sincerely commend them for their effort, and I know they can do even better if they work on these things I mentioned. I would definitely buy a sequel if it came out.

Worms Revolution Extreme

Overall, it's the same game as before but on a handheld, which worked very well for the gameplay. It maintained my attention for a while and I was able to enjoy the puzzles presented throughout the campaign. As I mentioned before, it gets pretty repetitive after a few rounds. If you don't take full advantage of your turn by destroying a worm or two, don't underestimate the computer because it will move its worms in place and take the shot. If you liked any of the Worms games, I suggest you try this out. The mobility of the Vita gave it a slight edge over Worms Clan Wars.

Alien Breed

So the one thing about Alien Breed is that the game is kind of boring and if you aren’t a fan of the old game there really isn’t anything here to bring anyone new to the mix. Even going back to the game, it was hard to stay focused and want to keep playing. This package is a love letter to those who really enjoyed the original game and it doesn’t seem to be targeted towards anyone else really. Alien Breed is a decent package and great love letter to a classic arcade game but that’s all it manages to be. The inclusion of multiplayer goes a long way to make this package worth the price but if you are looking for something more in depth you may want to look elsewhere.
