While Paper Mario may boast a larger selection of allies, Bug Fables still holds its own as an unofficial sequel of sorts. This is a game that matches the style, feel, and humour right down to the even the smallest things that made the Paper Mario games so iconic to begin with.
The price tag that the game boasts is actually less than I would have been happy to pay for it, after sinking quite a few hours into it. If you want a mindless shooter, then Tannenberg definitely isn’t for you. If you like to plan your actions, and if you’re methodical about how you proceed through a map, Tannenberg should be right up your alley.
After a good twenty to thirty hours with Rune Factory 4 Special, I gotta say it was a good time. This is a game with quite a lot to do, between combat, farming, requests, and planning festivals, plus whatever other jobs you have as a supposed prince. It’s hard to tell how much there would be to do after finishing the story, but at least with a lot to occupy your time until then, Rune Factory 4 Special could be a good fifty to one hundred hour time sink if you need something nice and long to pass the time.
Machinarium may be simple in concept, but just like other point-and-click puzzle games, the solution can be a bit mind bending. I do very much appreciate that there is an option to help you find the solution. No one wants to throw a controller across the room simply because they didn’t think to add a magnet to a fishing rod in order to tank a dog across a river.
Minecraft Dungeons does promise that DLC is coming, whether this ends up just being a cash grab to add a couple extra levels is yet to be seen. All we can hope for is that this will give fans of the game a reason to return to the game and give a reason to grind out levels and gear, otherwise, Minecraft Dungeons will surely fall to the wayside.
While graphically Wartile might not be much of a looker, the gameplay is where it really matters, and although the game started off a bit tough to navigate, once you’re through that hurdle, it’s quite an enjoyable experience, especially if you are into Dungeons & Dragons or Warhammer.
