Sequels I Would Love To See

Sometimes you play the fuck the out of a game to the point that there’s literally nothing else, you’re left still wanting more. Sadly, if there was more, it probably wouldn’t be as good, maybe some tacked on at the last minute DLC or whatever, but what about a sequel? Ahhh, but only if it could be as good as the original, right? Well, how about…

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!

Liberty or Death

General Overview

Once again establishing themselves as leaders in the sim/strategy genre (back at the time), Koei comes up with an amazing turn-based strategy/resource management game featuring major players and events of the American Revolutionary War.

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.

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 5

Ayup, another Steam roundup! This time around I’ll be talking about all indie titles, which Steam has been great for finding. Sure, not all indie titles are great, but these ones are and are all priced pretty low. In fact, they’re cheap enough that if you bought all of them at the same time, you’d be paying right around what you would be for a brand new mainstream title and you’d get oh so much more!

The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 2

Yup, I decided to do another. This time I decided to throw in only games that I would recommend, but I’m thinking if I do another that I might have to throw in games that I seriously would not recommend to anybody ever. All the same, let’s think positive!

The Fantastic World Of Japanese Games – Episode 4

Sometimes a game is deemed “too weird” to come to American soil. This doesn’t happen all the time and usually when it does, it’s for good reason. I mean, I guess so. I’ve decided to include youtube embeds on all the game pictures this time. Aren’t I such a nice guy?! All three of the games highlighted here definitely have their quirks, but should still definitely have come to America. Sadly, all three are RPGs as well, so that may have something to do with it. Anyway!

Thousand Arms

General Overview

Blacksmithing, RPGs, and dating sims collide in Thousand Arms, a game where smooth talking the ladies can help power up your weapons as well as earn you new spells and abilities. Atlus scores yet another hit on this playstation classic that blends multiple genres, lots of great humor, and much more. See? Being a pervert DOES have its benefits!

ActRaiser

General Overview

Usually when you throw several genres together, it just doesn’t work, especially when you’re dealing with older titles. ActRaiser is a shining example of how it CAN work, however, throwing a qualified action game very similar to that of the Castlevania games into the mix of a God sim whereupon you also level up. This is an excellent title that should appeal to action afficianados, RPG nuts, and megalomaniacs alike.

Atelier Annie – Alchemists of Sera Island

General Overview

A very odd entry in the already odd Atelier series by Gust, Atelier Annie concentrates on developing a resort with alchemy. Combat is far too simplistic, yet complicated and fairly uninspired. In fact, there are many things that Atelier Annie does wrong, though the one thing it does right will often keep you coming back: the sim aspect. It’s strange that only this one new concept helps keep things together, so it would be hard to recommend this for fans of the Atelier series.
