Games Ideas – Martial Arts and Crafts

I agree that the title is a bit dorky, but I really can’t think of anything else to call it and honestly, “Gymcraft” wouldn’t really describe the idea in its entirety, so here goes. Two sub-genres I’ve been liking a LOT lately have been Metroidvanias and roguelikes. Of course, we already have an excellent combination of both worlds: Rogue Legacy.

The Great Steam Roundup

Hello, everybody! I want to try something a little different (yes again), so this time I’m going to list off 5 things very quick from Steam and whether or not I can recommend them and why.

Brawler of the Year – 1997

This was a slow year for brawlers (unless Wiki’s being a jerk). However, there were some interesting titles this year all the same.

Brawler of the Year – 1996

There weren’t that many brawlers this year, but trust me…if you recognize at least half the games in the runner ups list, you’ll know immediately this was a hard year to call a #1.
