Billy is checking out SpellForce: Heroes & Magic this week and it’s a mobile game that brings the strategy of a PC series with it.
Into the realm of rogue-like adventure games like ADOM, Shiren the Wanderer, Nethack and others, we can add the delightful Tangledeep, one of the best RPGs of this type that we have ever played. Get tangled up in this great dungeon delver.
Outland, Quantum Earth Book One is a good end of the world type disaster tale that has some deep physics like experimental quantum uncertainty principals at it’s core. Basically, science nearly destroys the world, and these people try and survive it.
Although not particularly unique among stealth action games, Aragami: Shadow Edition is a solid title that will thrill those who like sneaking and stabbing in a semi-realistic cel-shaded environment. Give this one a whirl.
The Time Waster this week is an hack and slash game on mobile devices called Tower Breaker that Billy is more than a bit torn on. The game is great, but we might have a case of simply too many unskippable video ads really disrupting the play experience.
The amount of gory details and hardcore fighting inside Mortal Kombat 11 is insane. And it’s got a deep story mode, a krypt diving adventure area and plenty of brutal one versus one combat. If you thought that Mortal Kombat 10 was amazing, then this new game is your combat masterpiece.
We have been following The Demon Accords book series for quite a while, and Demon Divine, number 14 in the series, is quite possibly the best tale yet from author John Conroe.
We don’t know why the birds are so angry in Blazing Beaks, but they sure have gathered a lot of firepower. The game offers a fairly short stint of fighting levels, but also a nice local co-op mode, plus a lot of replay ability.
Billy’s Time Waster this week is a simple arcade game for smartphones called Bounce Blast that is all about getting high scores.
Based on the book and movie, World War Z the game offers hours of good and gory zombie killing for single players, four person cooperative multiplayer parties and even in PvP matches against both live people and computer-controlled undead hoards.
Peter Green just has his pajamas, a silk tie, and a one-way bus ticket to Mrs. Battisworth’s Academy for Unliving Boys and Girls, a strange and spooky school for dead orphans like himself. This book is like Harry Potter, but with dead kids.
Our reviewer is used to translating books he reads from Japanese, but even he was confused at what the Sword and Fairy 6 game was trying to accomplish. The story is a terrible, badly translated jumble, and the graphics, audio and controls are just as rotten.
Todd goes crazy playing Rage 2 this week. His review of the game is not quite ready, but he was bursting to let you know how this one is playing so far. We’ve even got a 30 minute movie of an extended firefight, cumulating in an epic convoy assault.
Michael’s back with another LitRPG Web Novel for this week’s Serial Saturday. It’s Upheaval Chapters 0-8 by Hodhandr!
A battle of tiny proportions is about to go down as Jordan’s pet(?) prepares for the launch of the new Godzilla movie coming out later this week.

Playdate is the new handheld console with more than a little quirkiness to set it apart. The tiny yellow box with a crank handle controller and 12 indie games has Chella intrigued. Will it be a success or just an idle curio for the gamer who has everything?
John Wick is getting the game treatment, with Mike Bithell at the helm, but there are so many films that could make great games. Drew and Chella devise a list of films you may not expect to see as games and discuss how they could work.
