The Simpsons Games

In 2007, the unthinkable happened: a genuinely GOOD Simpsons game was made. Yes, for a cartoon series that has been around for decades they sure did produce a lot of crappy games. And we’ll get to the good Simpsons game in a minute, but for right now, I wanted to highlight the cacophony crapshoot that was an endless series of failures in the Simpsons megaverse.

My Thoughts on Earthbound

Earthbound. A game that for many is a fond, but distant memory. A game that did so much and (used to) receive so little recognition. A game that upon a distant glance doesn’t look like its anything special, but provides a fun, deep, and rewarding experience. Earthbound is one of the best SNES RPGs in existence, providing a quirky, surreal experience to all who would frequent it.

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 10

This time I’ve decided to go with as many packages as possible. No, it’s not because I’m trying to knock out every single game I have as quickly as possible. Mostly it’s just that for a lot of these I didn’t realize they were within packages and you typically get better deals with said packages, so there you go. All in all, pretty decent games this time around, so let’s get started!

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 9

Nope. No true correlation between each title. Each one was picked up for a different reason, each one is very different, and each one is definitely recommendable…to the right person. I’ll provide a few more details on this, but for now just keep in mind that these have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Yay, intro’s over!

Torchlight 2

General Overview

I’ve been wanting to review this one for a while, but never felt like I had enough content to do so. I’ve beaten the game…and I still feel this way. If anything, this speaks volumes about the magnitude of ridiculous content stuffed into this package. If you enjoyed anything at all about the original Torchlight or any Diablo or Diablo-like game, why you haven’t picked this up already is beyond me.

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 8

Ayup, another random collection of stuff. For this roundup we have a wannabe that actually works quite well, a puzzle game that references new gen puzzles, two unfortunate titles, and two kickass titles that I’m truly surprised I didn’t mention as early as the original Steam Roundup. Could’ve been that I wanted to give them full page reviews, but ehh. Let’s go!

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 7

Ya, another random assortment. It started out with me wanting to tackle all adventure games, but sadly I don’t really have that many left. And no, this isn’t some calling to arms for making adventure games (though I totally wouldn’t complain if it ended up forcing more out as a result), but I at least wanted to give you guys more of an idea of what’s available on steam.
