Over the past weekend, I had the chance to play a new action-adventure title called "Waking". At first glance, the visual style and soundscape attracted me to this game. What I found was much deeper than I could have ever imagined. Waking was doing something very different from every game I've ever played in my 42 years of life.
A year ago the action RPG Conqueror's Blade fired it's first trebuchets as it launched into early access. This medieval war simulator brought some fresh dynamics to the genre with troop management, territory control, and some wicked good rock, paper, scissors gameplay.
To say a game is life-changing seems like a gross exaggeration. However, in the case of these two games, we Perfectly Pair today is more of an understatement. I was initially drawn to these games by their stunning visuals and what looked to be a rich story.
There are times when different games suit a certain mood. So when GmaFog just wants to go hit something, find friends for hunts, or fly through the air, Dauntless is her choice in games.
For the past year, I have led a group of houses (The Gaiscioch Alliance) that help new players learn the ropes before sending them off to the big war. There are several key things I've learned along the way that are imperative to your success and enjoyment as a warrior in Conqueror's Blade.
The storyline, images, and style of play are all nicely done. All the country/town settings and relationships are what you would expect of 14th-century culture. I noticed immediately the cultural speech and family relationships are very deferential.
Super Inefficient Golf proved to be a frustratingly fun and distracting game. It takes miniature golf courses to a new level because you are not using a club to move your ball. No, you have to propel it with bombs!
RPG Maker MV software on PC, a program that allows you to create your own retro style game.
When I first received Portal Knights from my son, I thought, here is another crazy kids game I might be able to play with my grandsons. Little did I know that I would be sucked into this game to the point of losing track of time. Spending about a month now in the adventure, I absolutely love it. I acquired the PC version of the game on Steam. You can play Portal Knights on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Android, Xbox One, iOS, or Microsoft Windows. It is considered a cooperative 3D sandbox action-RPG. The only downside is that it is only a 4-player game and not cross-platform, but it is still fun to gather in groups of four on one platform.
Honour, signified by a gold medal, serves as the gateway to unlocking new troops, new troop abilities, and new eras. It is the single most important currency in the game as it opens doors of opportunity to you giving you more powerful troops at your disposal.
