Todd continues his video adventures inside Fallout 4’s Nuka World amusement park, the final DLC for that epic game. He starts to take his place as the over-boss, but tensions among the various gangs is running high. And remember, in Nuka World, you are only the boss for life.
Flying around in a spaceship exploring new worlds, meeting new characters and alien races, going on quests, combating enemies with plasma weapons and future tech while enjoying a sci-fi story sounds great, right? Unfortunately, PlanCon: Space Conflict does not quite offer everything it set out to achieve. Still, this one is worth a second glance.
The final DLC for the epic Fallout 4 has finally been released. Welcome to the fabled Nuka World amusement park, which is a lot more deadly today than it was before we got frozen.

Anyone looking for a cool twist on the standard tower defense genre should give Space Run Galaxy a whirl. The game combines deeper strategy with almost twitch-level tactics for a fresh take on a classic mechanic. Just beware the space squids as they can get nasty this time of year.
Heaven’s Hope is a point and click adventure with an interesting concept. Players take on the role of a friendly but foolish angel named Talorel who has fallen from heaven and can’t get back up. Going home is not that easy though when you’re missing your wings and halo, and stuck in a town where anything out of the ordinary is condemned as evil witchcraft.
Comparisons will be made between Drake Ramsey and Indiana Jones, and for good reason. Ramsey’s Gold is one of the best adventure tales Michael’s come across, and it’s even more exciting as an audiobook.
Breached is one of the most beautiful sci-fi games you will likely find this year, with a great concept and even cool things like real science puzzles that you wont find almost anywhere else. It’s also, unfortunately, one of those games that is likely to drive you crazy as you play. Come read our love/hate review of this really cool adventure game.
After quite a few missteps, Todd was finally able to blast off with No Man’s Sky this week using his PC. His adventure so far has been funny, frustrating and also fulfilling, just not so much in that order.
Michael’s back with a sequel to a book he covered ages ago for this week’s Bookish Wednesday! It’s Split the Party, Book 02 of the Spells, Swords and Stealth series, by Drew Hayes!
