4.5 / 5.0 - Isonzo

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.

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.

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

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.

They will make video games after this but they shouldn’t, perfection has been achieved.

There’s a good core but the rest of the game is the Diet Coke of Evil: Just one calorie, not evil enough.

Stubbs is emblematic of the end-of-lifecycle game in that it is extremely weird, kind of janky, and beloved by those who happened to pick it up in the game store, which was something we had way back then, because console games hadn’t invented online purchases yet.

3 / 5.0 - Empire of Sin

At its heart, Empire of Sin does a little of everything and does none of it well.

Interesting indie game that’s not quite as good as it wants to be, but still aims for the sky and hits.

This may be Paradox’s best game and it’s about…family.

It’s XCOM but less intimidating and overwhelming.

Surprisingly playable and fun for a reasonably complicated wargame.
