  1. Unreal Tournament. It's pretty cool
  2. Imagine being that miserable all the time.
  3. Oh no, what if.. we're all really just trapped inside a Pringles™ commercial!
  4. I always thought the extreme price discounts were a psychological business tactic. Like companies could sell their game at full price and have 10 people buy it in a month, or they could drop it to 1/4 the price and have 90 people buy it in a month. Or something like that. Star Citizen is a huge scam. It looks pretty, sure, but has very little to show for how long it's been in development and how much money has been thrown at it. Is their grand vision of the game even possible with the technology available? Who knows.
  5. Devil Daggers - 2016 A chaotic arena shooter set in the depths of hell. Lisa: The Painful - 2014 A quirky side-scrolling RPG set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. It has a superb soundtrack. Receiver 2 - 2020 A tense FPS with a detailed simulation of firearm controls and randomly generated levels. Overgrowth - 2017 A sandbox fighting game where you play as a parkour ninja rabbit and fight against evil.
  6. https://steamcommunity.com/id/Axi0hm/ I play a mixed bag of stuff. Always in need of a Portal 2 co-op partner though!
  7. Coolest game I've ever played? That is a tough one to narrow down. Time Splitters was a phenomenal FPS game. I remember having the absolute shit scared out of me fighting the zombies in the first mission. The Matrix: Path of Neo was probably one of the coolest adventure/fighting games I played for the PS2. Left 4 Dead was also a great FPS, but its dark atmosphere was what did it for me the most. Valiant Hearts was one of my favorite story-driven games despite being published by Ubisoft.
  8. An indie game from a one-man-studio which isn't too bad. It takes about 3 hours to complete and the gameplay is comparable to the original DOOM games, in that you only shoot enemies and occasionally interact with objects. The main focus is the story, which is a little hard to follow as it jumps between trying exploring subjects like philosophy, the afterlife, mental illness, etc. Not great, not bad. Impressive for something made by one person. 6/10 because it has a punk rocker rat girl.
  9. Paratopic is in some weird genre territory. A psychological thriller/exploration game would be the best way to describe it, I guess? There aren't many overtly horror elements in it. It's a short but very bizarre experience that leaves you with more questions than it answers. I played through it 4 different times to get all the achievements and still don't completely understand the story. It really captures that somber, melancholy feeling of listening to the radio while driving down an empty highway at night, though. 7/10 for what it is.

    ADR1FT

    Adr1ft felt like more of a tech demo than an actual game, but that's not to say it has no redeeming qualities. The gameplay is mostly repetitive fetch quest type objectives, where you go collect/activate something and then return to the hub to repeat the process in a different area. The controls are also a little difficult to get the hang of, and there's a constant need to monitor oxygen as well as repair your damaged spacesuit. The story only takes about 3 hours to complete, but you unlock a free-roaming mode after where you can explore all the maps without the obnoxious gameplay mechanics. The main positive thing about Adr1ft is the environment — a space station that's been shredded to pieces in low earth orbit. The amount of detail and care the developers put into the visuals and atmosphere is awesome! Definitely an underrated title for that alone. I can only imagine what it's like in VR. I'd give it a 5/10.
  11. A short and very silly/quirky game in the same vein as The Stanley Parable. It's free and Justin Roiland did some funny voice acting parts for it.
  12. There isn't much I can say that the other review didn't cover. If you liked the game Uncanny Valley then you'll probably like this one too. I couldn't verify if Cowardly Creations, the creators of Uncanny Valley, had a hand in developing this game, but The Long Reach definitely feels like a more fully realized version of it. The game even takes place during Christmas time and has some pretty disturbing holiday-related story elements. The whole thing took me around 4 hours to finish, mostly because the puzzles can be a little frustrating to figure out. All in all, I really enjoyed it. A solid 8/10.
