First Thoughts on Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire

First Thoughts on Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire

Developed by Whale Hammer Games, Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire hit Steam this week and I’ve thus far played a couple hours. My first thoughts? This strategy RPG has a fascinating backstory, great mechanics and a cool aesthetic, but could benefit from a little more polish and seems to be in the bad habit of ‘telling’ instead of ‘showing’ when it comes to the story- but overall, it seems that the game’s a real diamond in the rough. Still, these are just my first impressions based on a couple hours of play. To delve a little deeper, Tahira follows the game’s... Read On

A Quick Look at Tick Tock Bang Bang

A Quick Look at Tick Tock Bang Bang

Dejobaan has a history of strange games- the bizarrely titled Drunken Robot Pornography and somewhat more normally named Elegy for a Dead World are both very unusual- their latest game, Tick Tock Bang Bang, is no exception. The game’s concept isn’t totally original- it draws inspiration from SUPERHOT and wears its influences unabashedly on its sleeve. The game’s premise is pretty simple- you play as the world’s greatest stuntwoman- time only moves normally when you do- just like in SUPERHOT. Your goal is simple- destroy your robot enemies and make it to the end of the level as quickly as possible, while shooting a... Read On

7 Underrated Games to Pick Up in the 2016 Steam Summer Sale

Every summer, there’s a big sale held on Steam, the world’s biggest digital distribution platform for PC games. For many developers, having a game on Steam is the difference between obscurity and success- it’s almost unheard of for a PC game not to be released on Steam- unless, of course, it’s coming from Blizzard, or another company that keeps a tight hold on its own distribution. If you’re new to the world of PC gaming, these sales are essential as they’re a great way to get one’s hands on a good number of classic games at incredibly low prices. If... Read On

Fallout 4 – Closing Thoughts

Fallout 4 – Closing Thoughts

It’s hard to say I’ve finished Fallout 4.  I feel as though there’s just too much content for the average gamer.  If you’re anything like me however, you simply realize you’ve been playing the game for too long, and decide that enough is enough.  Fallout 4, was a truly entertaining experience, and one that I’ll likely not forget, but there are a few things that stuck out to me as persistent issues for Bethesda in 2016, and that’s what I’ll be addressing. Replayability — Virtually nonexistent. I know that I can change up my character’s style and go about... Read On

The Eight Most Exciting Reveals from E3 2016

The Electronic Entertainment Expo returned this year, and as per usual, it brought a ton of game teasers, announcements, and a lot more- here are the eight coolest things that we saw during E3 2016. 1. Xbox Play Anywhere I’m surprised that the announcement of Xbox Play Anywhere didn’t make more of a splash, considering the fact that it’s such a big deal: Xbox Play Anywhere will allow you to purchase an Xbox One game and enjoy it on Windows 10- or vice versa. This is somewhat similar to Sony’s Cross-Play on the PS4/Vita- thus far, Xbox Play Anywhere-eligible games are ARK:... Read On

Last Train to the End of the World: First Impressions of The Final Station

Last Train to the End of the World: First Impressions of The Final Station

A while ago, Tinybuild announced that it’d be publishing a postapocalyptic platformer/train management game called The Final Station in which you play as a train conductor riding from station to station, fighting off people infected with a mysterious illness that turns them into monsters and picking up survivors. The game is set to be released this summer for Windows-  I got to play an early version of the game’s first chapter: these are my first thoughts.
