Mutant Year Zero Road to Eden - Review

A smart mouth Duck and an aggressive Pig walk into a post apocalyptic world..stop me if you've heard this one.
 X-com focused game play mixed with a cartoon style post apocalyptic world. MYZ has a much greater emphasis on exploring  then most turn based strategy games. That doesn't take away from the combat at all, which still requires planning and good execution to come out on top  and ensure no causalities in battle. The Story last for approx. 15 hours along the way your hunting salvage and looking for crew members. The salvage is used to buy and upgrade gear for your team and base. I think anyone who like turn-based strategy games will enjoy this one and it's priced just right at $35.

You can grab it from Humble for $35 and help me Support St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital at no additional cost to yourself. 

Epic Launching it's own Game Store

This had to be something that was in the works before the surprise hit that was Fortnite right? I'll give Epic a lot of credit, even though I am not a huge fan of Fornite, they did and are continuously knocking it out of the park with that game.  They do move fast, so maybe it's a new idea that came along with the success of Fortnite? Honestly no I don't think so, it makes sense that a company who makes one of the most popular game engines would do this.  Now I am sure the popularity of Fortnite has only accelerated this move, but I am going to go with this being in the works for along time.

We've seen a string of new stores announcements  recently. Including the Western Juggernaut Tencent saying they wanted to bring the WeGame store global. Robot Cache is also coming soon with a few tricks up it's sleeve. It has the lowest cut of sales take at 5%, plus offers a cut of any game sold as used to the developers as well. It allows users to mine cryptocurrency (there own form of it called Iron) and use that to buy games. The last big difference between it and the others is that you can sell back digital games for 25% of the value.

So whats different about Epic's Store, right now we know they are offering a 88% cut of sales to the developers, plus even bigger bonus for games made on there Unreal engine.  Plus the all mighty Fortnite will be featured automatically bring in a huge player base.

Steam is going to be getting a lot of new competition very soon and they've taken notice. Just earlier this week they announced they would be taking a smaller chunk of revenue from games that are popular and have sold X amount of copies. So bigger AAA games will have more reason to use steam. Right now though that's it and from what I heard the Indie dev's are ready to move ship. As much as I hate having a lot of different stores to log into, competition is good for the consumer.

Mystic Vale - Review

Mystic Vale is a fast pace deck building game that has some mechanic's that I've never seen before. It has multiple  strategy's you can take to win and reminds me of Ascension in the randomness and style of game that often has you building your deck differently each game based off what the cards available are. The tutorial doesn't explain everything, but after a few games you figure it out and realize how well thought out and fun the game is. Multiplayer is coming but even playing the A.I. is a good challenge.They are really good or I am really bad, one of the other. Well worth the $10 asking price.
