Steam Roundup – Episode 15

I apologize in advance for having one disappointing game this time around. And really, it’s not a BAD game, I just figured it would be…well, better. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these and I’ve got a number of great titles to show you. Honestly, there isn’t a whole lot else to say, so let’s just dive right into it!

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.

Game Ideas – Zombie A.I.

In my opinion, the zombie craze is going to have to die down sooner or later. I don’t know when this zombie fetish stuff started, probably back in 2006 or something, but it will eventually take its toll and zombies will be on the same level as other monsters again shortly, I’m sure. That said, I have an idea for a zombie game told from a very different angle.

RPG of the Year – 2011

I was hoping this year would be a little more eventful and tough to pick a top 5, but it really isn’t. Sure, the top 5 are EXCELLENT and there are a few good runner ups, but there are also a lot of terrible MMOs and poorly thought out mobile games. There are 81 games in total, but you probably already know what’s going on the top 5.

No real correlation of any sort this time, just 5 titles you should check out at your earliest convenience. Yup, I can definitely say I would recommend these. No duds here.

Why Games Like Xenogears Still Hold Up

This is sort of a review of xenogears, but from two angles: the me from right now and the me from 1998 (I was 16). Now, this might still be a little tricky, but effectively the reason for this article is for a lot of us we have this rose-colored glasses look of games from the yesteryear that we used to love, then when we go back to play it, we either make excuses for it or outright cannot enjoy it anymore.

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 11

Yup, it’s been a while. That’s mostly because I got a new 360, but also because I hadn’t been playing much new on Steam. All the same, with nearly 300 games and counting, I figured I could squeeze in another one. Let’s get this started!
