Green Hell - A Hardcore Survival Story

I am new to Green Hell, I just jumped into it when the 1.0 update came out last week. I started straight into the story mode and that's all I've played so far in my 7 hours.  My love for survival games is strong and I've played almost all of them currently out. Let me tell you this one is no joke. In fact, I'd say it's hardcore, but done so well it's an amazing experience. The sound effects, graphic's and game mechanic's really standout. I am still early on in the story mode, mostly because I keep dying, but the story so far is fascinating. They do a great job of leading you just a little and letting you find things on your own. With that said it has almost no tutorial, there is no hand holding, just infected scratches, rashes, bug bites and more.  You are left to figure things out on your own after you leave the base camp, and it's not easy.  What's great about this is it all makes sense, you'll be struggling to figure something out and then it will just hit you...that is how you'd do it in real life and that's how it's done here. The game has its hooks in me bad, and I've completed part 1 of my Green Hell Series already and Part 2 is on the way soon.

Project Hospital Review

Project Hospital is the best simulation of Hospital building and management that I've ever played. In fact, it's one of the best Sim games I've ever played period. It's got a lot of moving parts and can be a bit tedious and confusing due to how much stuff you can customize. With that said they've also streamlined some stuff like room prefabs that make it much more user-friendly to get started. If you're looking for a realistic simulation that gives you every square tile of customization possible, then look no further as Oxymoron games has tested positive for Best Hospital Simulation / Management game.

Re:Legend - EA Review

Backstory:
 I backed this on KS about 2 years ago and like most KS games it's a year late on the estimated delivery, but I'm KS veteran (aka sucker) so this is normal for me. Plus there are so many games to play in this day and age, it never phases me if one is delayed.

Game Review:
 Cute as hell mixed bag of Stardew Valley, Pokemon and Harvest Moon. It's still really buggy and co-op isn't working well, but it's already getting daily patches and if they get it all fixed up it will be a ton of fun and for $20 it's worth it. In my single-player game I've run into far fewer bugs, than when I tried to play MP. This was something that Magnus games warned players about to be fair. The game has the Japanese style over zealous NPC's that are full of Excitement and expectations. The main creatures in this game called Magnus, and they are all very cool looking and fun to interact with. Taming uses a rodeo style mini game that is used capture the Magnus's. Farming, Mining, Fishing, Logging, Crafting, Weaponry and more are all skills you can level up. If you the type of person who hates Early Access  games, I would wait and let this one fully cook before tasting.

Decay of Logos - EA Review

I got my hands on this game a few days earlier than the EA release, so I've played a fair bit of it. I am not a hack and slash Dark Souls styles combat fan, but I did finish Zelda Breath of the Wild, so I am not a complete noob at these types of games.  I struggled at first with the combat in DOL, it's hard, feels slow compared to other games but once you figure out that timing is key it gets better.  For me it took multiple deaths and more than a few times of raging at the combat mechanic's. If  you watch my video below you will see my frustrations, I did get better and started to see the patterns each enemy had. The world and creatures in it are joyous and fun to see, the world feel alive and full of potential.

I do wish the tutorial, and combat was better, but it's EA and to be honest I enjoyed it enough that I figured this game would be well-received by the community. That doesn't seem to be the case as right now it's sitting at a 43%, which I feel is really low. This game was done by a 4 person team, not a huge multi-million costing team like both Dark Souls and Zelda have. So to have that expectation for an early access title of this caliber is not far to this team. It's a $20 game and yes you can tell it's in an EA state, but I think this game will only get better and the $20 is justified.
