First Impressions: Mugen Souls Z (Steam Port)

Mugen Souls Z Screen 2

Even though the situation has changed quite a bit, Japanese Role Playing Games (JRPGs) are still kind of rare on PC. They still don’t really feel at home on this platform, after all these years of console exclusivity. Slowly, this is changing, with more and more games getting ported to the PC and published on Steam. Some of those ports aren’t all that good, as we have seen with the Tales of Symphonia HD port.¬†With that in mind, let’s have a first looks at the Steam port of Mugen Souls Z, which was originally released on PS3 back in 2013!

Review: Another Metroid 2 Remake

AM2R Title Screen.jpg

I’ve been talking a lot about Metroid these past few weeks. That’s mostly because Nintendo does not seem to care all that much about the franchise, even though they are releasing Metroid Prime: Federation Force, a game that got a lot of heat for being untraditional, and including new Metroid-themed items in Miitomo, which actually made me start that App for the first time in a month. No, the Metroid thing most people seem to talk about these days is a little fanproject called Another Metroid 2 Remake, or AM2R for short. I got it, played it and now I’m going to tell you how it holds up to official products.

Impressions: Resident Evil 7 – Beginning Hour

Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour_20160614114901

The playable teaser is a fairly new way of showing off a game to the audience. P.T. Was one of the first games to do this in order to tease a new Silent Hill title, that unfortunately would never see the light of day. Taking some cues from Konami, Capcom has released a playable teaser for the upcoming Resident Evil 7. I gave the teaser a try and was positively surprised.

Review: Mad Games Tycoon (Early Access)

Mad Games Tycoon 4

I love Game Dev sims. Game Dev Story was one of those games that managed to burn away many hours of my life. It still is one of my favourite games on my iPhone. And for a long time, it was also pretty much the only game of its kind. Thankfully, Game Dev Tycoon came out in 2012. While it managed to be similar to the aforementioned game, it was also a bit more complex and supported mods. I played it a lot back in the day, but it never became an evergreen for me. Thankfully, Mad Games Tycoon has been in Early Access for some time now and I think it’s the right moment to write this little review of it.

Please stop swearing, Moira

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a fun game, but if there’s something that really annoys me, it’s the fact that Moira, Barry Burtons daughter, swears so much. It’s not just the sheer amount of swearing that is so irritating, but also the quality of the swearing that really turns me off when it comes to this character.

A quick look at: Plague Inc: Evolved

Plague Inc Evolved 1

While I am a pretty active mobile gamer, I don’t spend a lot of time playing on a smartphone. However, one of the few games I play regularly on my phone is Plague Inc, a game where you design an illness and try to kill off humanity with it. Doesn’t sound like a lot of fun, but it sure is. A PC-version has been in Early Access for quite some time now and played around with it for some hours. Here are my impressions!

Why on earth can’t I stop playing this?

Civilization V

You knew from the start, that this was going to be about Civilization V? Every single time I boot up Steam, I just have to stare at the number of hours I have poured into this game and I begin to wonder, what else I could have accomplished in those 600+ hours. I could have written several books instead of just one. I could have written dozens, if not hundreds of blog posts about pretty much any subject. But no, I had to play it, and now I have to write about it.
