Between The Stars Demo - On Kickstarter now.

I just played the demo for Between the Stars, which is a roguelike space ARPG. It kind of reminded me of FTL and Firefly. It's got silly banter mixed in with a serious story that unfolds in mission type segments. They all seem to put you in a liner path, at least for the demo. Loot is gathered in pods which you open and then loot is thrown at you, like opening a pack of cards in hearthstone.  I enjoyed that small surprise more then I should of. It has it's quirks, like the flying takes a bit to get use too, and some systems need a little bit more explaining, but it is a demo after all. I recommend everyone check out the free demo and then support them on Kickstarter if they like it. I know for $20 I am going to help support the game because I can see having a lot of fun with it.

Trains VR - First look

I check out Trains VR. A puzzle game that has you using trains to collect stars in the fastest and most efficient way possible. A Nostalgic trip back to my childhood.

New Dawn - Survival game first look!

The pieces are in place for an excellent survival game. Combat is very simple  and they need to figure out some systems. Food is your main enemy right now, as it seems to be very hard to find / kill.  There is a lot of things to craft and the environment is hand crafted with nice points of interest.  If you enjoy survival games and don't mind playing early access one that still has a way to go then I recommend supporting them.

Catan VR _ Lets play!

A very well made VR game that plays just like the board game minus all the setup and cleanup, which is awesome. Trading is easy and happens more then I've ever experienced in an online Catan game. This critical feature tends to not happen in online Catan like it does when playing the actually board game. Which has always diminished my online experience. To see it implemented in the VR version and done so well makes me very happy.  Any fan of Catan will enjoy!

Omerta City of Gangsters Review

I skipped on this game at release(2013) after being really excited for it. The price and mixed reviews were the main deterrents if I remember correctly. At some point I did purchase it along with all the DLC content. I sadly have no idea when or where I picked the game up at, most likely one of the big sales, none the less that doesn't matter at this point. After 5 years I finally have experienced Omerta and let me tell you it has a lot of flaws, but wow is it a lot of fun at the same time. If you like management games and x-com lite style combat then your in for a treat. Be warned it has a lot of things that may turn people off. Like the fact that it doesn't really do either Strategy or combat well. The city management is where it really shines. The sheer amount of city management and customization of how you want to run your gang is beyond great. I try to auto most combat's but the %percentages for most interactions seem really off. I've failed a lot of 60-75% success chances, I've seen others report the same issue, so it's not just me and my bad luck. With all that said I am still left in a state where if Omerta 2 was in the works (it's not) I would buy it at release without hesitation.
