This week Billy was a bit of a flake on the Time Waster, but he promises that he was still doing some that involves gaming this week. It’s D&D!
Rainbow Skies is an adventure game that combines tactical turn-based fighting, deep dungeon loot diving, a little bit of Pokémon, and some light role-playing into a fun little adventure whose only flaw may be trying to do too much.
On the surface Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom seems like a whimsical fairytale, full of anthropomorphic animals, genial sky pirates and a young king coming of age. But just below that surface is a much deeper game and story that is not to be missed.
Man the cannons and hoist the mainsail, as one of the best RPGs of yesteryear comes sailing back with a nautical and pirate-themed sequel. Pillars of Eternity: Deadfire is more fun than a barrel of grog, and should become an instant classic.
Prepare to die, again, as we return to the apocalyptic fantasy world of Lordran in Dark Souls: Remastered. Do modern-day enhancements re-light the Souls bonfire? Or is this resurrection simply another step towards Hollowing?
Originally released for the PC and other consoles, Battle Chasers: Nightwar moves to the Nintendo Switch, where its comic book-like RPG elements, intense action and good graphics make it perfect for some epic couch play sessions.
Developer 11bit Studios have done it yet again, this time combining deep city and empire building, a haunting story, and plenty of surprises into the frozen masterpiece that is Frostpunk. Those looking for something new and cool (or cold) can chill out with this unique city-building experience.
Moonlighter is a wonderful game that stands as yet another testament to not all Kickstarter projects being bad. The marriage of dungeon diving and running a shop works incredibly well and the love put into the game shines through with the graphics and audio.
It’s time to fry some big Mechs once again, as BATTLETECH plods onto the gaming scene. With such a rich history in both computer games and pen and paper titles, expectations were high for this robot rumble, but is BATTLETECH up for that considerable challenge?
Our Time Waster is checking out yet another game in Early Access this week. This time around the game stealing away his time is a spaceship management simulator called Pixel Starships.
