No More Papers, Please

Story
The story of Papers, Please takes place in the fictional Arstotzka, a country similar to an Eastern Bloc communist state during the Cold War. Your character is a border crossing guard who evaluates the paperwork of those wishing to enter from neighboring states. You start the game with a family (wife, child, mother-in-law, uncle) all living under the same roof. The new position as a...

Hollow and Rotten

Back in 2017, a new Dutch Indie startup calling themselves Twirlbound launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund an ambitious new game development project, which would be published by Kongregate (you know, the Flash/browser game guys). The Kickstarter succeeded, though not by nearly as massive margins as other Indie darlings both before and since, reaching 121,000/100,000 Euros – that is to s...

The Monty Python of Hack ‘n Slash

Occasionally within the world of videogames, celestial twins are born. Brothers from other mothers, in these situations, two titles with nearly identical premises and concepts release from different developers within a couple years of each other, at most. The most well-known example of this phenomenon amongst the MJ Crew is the release window of “Dungeon Defenders” and “Orcs Must Die!” tw...

Front Mission Evolved  Add to game list
Rating of: 2/5

Evolution Does Not Imply Improvement

‘Front Mission’ is a long-running series of Tactical Role-Playing Games developed by Squaresoft starting back in 1995. Since that time, only a handful of ‘Front Mission’ titles received official localizations outside of Japan. Moreover, Squaresoft demonstrated a disturbing preoccupation with adding Action to a turn-based franchise, starting with 1996’s “Front Mission: Gun Hazard.”

Banal Fable

I remember back when there were many exclusives between consoles (there are still a few here and there, but they are becoming easier to to play on PC as long as you can wait) that I was upset the Xbox crowd was getting the Fable exclusives as it looked like a solid and fun open-world RPG. Big choices - be good, be evil, kill chickens, change your appearance, romance! And when Steam finally got th...

The most enjoyable instalment of the long running series with plenty of variety and loads of ideas. One of the best run'n'gunners you can buy.

Strange Brigade  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Raucus, Rip-Roaring Adventure Time

While not every pick I have provided has been an unmitigated success, I have to say that I think Strange Brigade is probably one of my better choices. It's one of those games that probably went under the radar for many people and that's too bad as Strange Brigade is more than solid - it's a lot of fun and Rebellion should be proud of the result. Granted, you have to have some enjoyment of pulpy a...

A Hard Reigns Gonna Fall

When it comes to co-op games, our group is open to anything that looks even remotely promising. Often this means playing trusted series (like Borderlands) or something that has an established fan base (like Stardew Valley) or something in a genre we have enjoyed in the past (like Victor Vran) and sometimes it means taking a chance on something like... Satellite Reign. In fact, I believe this game...

Assault Rigs  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Tank-based puzzle/shoot 'em up hybrid set in a Tron-like virtual world. It would've benefited from sturdier physics (the tanks feel a little rubbery) and the sound design is rather dated, but as the levels get more complex and devious, the better it gets. Never one of the top notch PS1 titles, but a decent enough diversion.
