So if you don’t mind the fact that it’s not Darkest Dungeon But More and it’s Darkest Dungeon But Different…it’s worth caveating that the first 10 hours are so are basically just punching you in the face over and over again and normally I don’t put up with that at all before going “okay yeah but then it gets good” but I am an unemployed goth degenerate, so what else am I gonna do?

Frogwares really really likes doing Sherlock Holmes games and there is a deep affection for the characters woven throughout.

Sitting around making weed smoke. Not the fun kind.

3.5 / 5.0 - BLACKTAIL
Dec 20, 2022

There’s really nothing like Blacktail as long as you don’t mind the video game stuff stumbling over the weird story stuff. Or play in story mode, I suppose.

4.5 / 5.0 - Dwarf Fortress
Dec 9, 2022

I think they’ve done it. This is the classic Dwarf Fortress experience but with nice graphics, some quality of life improvements, and more robust mouse support. Strike the earth! Don’t slip on the puke!

4.5 / 5.0 - Victoria 3
Nov 15, 2022

I think the real appeal of Victoria 3 and the series overall is it’s very self-directed. Picking one game can result in a completely different experience. Managing the diplomacy and economy of the British Empire at its peak is absolutely insane, then during the next run, you are trying to do things like “figure out how to even have diplomatic relations” and “wtf how do i economy???” in some backwater nation you are gracing with your benevolent rulership.

4.5 / 5.0 - Nitro Kid

If you like roguelike deckbuilders, 80s action movies, and synthwave, Nitro Kid is a banger.

I feel like you know if you want to give a World War 1 shooter a try. This is a niche thing and you know if you’re in it. Also hi, haven’t seen you at the niche meetings.

4 / 5.0 - Hard West 2
Aug 30, 2022

I found it compelling. Even if you don’t like tactical combat, you have to admire something so completely insane and very much its own thing when the world is busy making roguelike soulslikes platformers. It’s also an excuse to buy a cowboy hat of your very own.

But if you’re looking for Vampire: The Masquerade and you are also old and you don’t want to play a janky battle royale, Vampire: the Masquerade – Swansong is…kinda interesting.

Great visuals, great voice acting, great sound, great music, shame the game is mediocre.

The video game equivalent of being picked up in a 2000 F-250 by a guy blasting Skynyrd and yelling HELL YEAH BROTHER at everything you say.

3 / 5.0 - After The Fall
Dec 20, 2021

Worth buying if you have a VR crew, but don’t buy a headset for it unless you want to die alone like me.

3 / 5.0 - Hell Architect

Not a bad little diversion but there’s so many good pop/city management games now it’s not worth more than a few minutes.
