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.
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.
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.
Although Spaceland is still in beta, it has great ideas and challenging gameplay as you work your way deeper into the storyline. With hints, tips and such for the gameplay, you learn about each character and what they can do, learning new abilities as you progress deeper into the storyline. Spaceland does offer different modes of difficulty as you play through the game, which you can change at any point and any time in between missions. The game also offers several different languages you can change at will, an option extremely different than any other game I have played.
I’ve always wanted to check out this game, but life and too many other options with Gaiscioch over the years made me skip it until now. During the twelfth anniversary celebration, I finally jumped into the game, along with other Gaiscioch. Better late than never!
Oh, look another control point, let’s go and take it. OK, we took the control point, but there’s a patrol of Hyenas, let’s get them. Patrol down, hostages need to be freed, let’s go and free them. The hostages have been saved, now what were we originally doing again? This is a sample of what my play sessions have been like since Ubisoft launched Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, sequel to 2016’s Tom Clancy’s The Division. It’s just so easy to forget what your objective is with all the other activities popping up.
With the release of Wild Appalachia to Fallout 76, Bethesda added some new crafting stations that can be acquired in the special quest chain. I hopped in to see how this worked out. Appalachia was wild enough without crazy drinks given out at frat parties.
