This week we journey into the Bermuda Triangle, and thought it to the Lost Sea, a land outside of space and time. Can our ragtag crew come together to escape the islands of this game? Perhaps, if it were not so darn difficult.
This week Billy is back to his smartphone for his time wasting needs and he’s checking out an unfinished game called Deul. No, that isn’t a typo. It’s spelled Deul. a game that has players taking on AI and others in a contest to see who is quick, and who is just dead.
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.
This week Billy is taking on the role of The Cave Explorer in a 2D platforming game that gives players very limited control of its protagonist.
The Muv – Luv visual novel is easily one of the most fascinating and fun games of this type that we have yet come across. Depending on your choices, your journey can be short and terrible or long and fulfilling in this quirky blend of anime and sci-fi, with a touch of romance tossed in for good measure.
Broken Bots is an 8-bit neon shooter similar in speed and style to Hotline Miami. While it certainly has its shortcomings, its entry-level price and totally over-the-top chaotic gameplay make it an exciting, if somewhat mindless, diversion.
Phantaruk is the first attempt at a horror game from indie developer Polyslash. While it provides an interesting setting and backstory, this freshman outing is likely too flawed to gain widespread success in the increasingly crowded horror genre.
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 another One-shot for this week’s Manga Monday! It’s Getsu in no Onmyouji by Gotsubo Masaru!
GiN is gearing up for the massive Call of Duty XP 2016 event out in LA later this week, with our own reporter Marion Constante covering the show . Tune in to find out more about the Call of Duty World League Championship as well as live reports about where this beloved series is going next.
The D&D adventures continue this week and the group is starting to realize how unreliable their scout is after he’s catches the eye of an owlbear.
Drew and Chella discuss Inside, the latest game from Limbo developer, Playdead. From the puzzling ending and the artsy intentions, can the Argue The Toss team agree to disagree?
Timothy Zahn is well known as a Star Wars author, but he also wrote many other books in the sci-fi and fantasy genre including the Cobra series, The Icarus Hunt, The Conquerors Saga, Dragonback series and the Quadrail series. He has written over forty novels, many more short stories and novellas. He came to AwesomeCon this year to talk all things sci-fi, but especially Star Wars.
Welcome. If any of you are regulars here at GiN, you probably remember that I played through Final Fantasy IX last year as part of my New Year’s Resolution. Final Fantasy IX was a very polarizing game for me. I … Continue reading Why Final Fantasy IX Has the Saddest Ending of Any Game
