Starting another game today, one I really dislike in fact: Jade Empire. Released by Bioware in 2005 for the Xbox and in 2007 for the PC, I have never been a fan of this game. Which came as a shock for me as I was a big Bioware fanboy prior to this title. But for me this game really marks the beginning of the end for Bioware as they transformed into the EA subsidiary we know today. As an aside, I have never actually beaten this game before so this will be a first time playing through to completion.
So join me, and share in my pain, as I explore what I feel is one of the most over-rated games released in the last 10 years.
Another game I have been waiting to play since it came out and just haven’t given the proper time too, Prison Architect is a wonderful little Building-Sim, with a twist. Instead of building a city, or a park, or a hospital, things people generally enjoy or appreciate; in this game, as the name implies, you instead are tasked with building a functional prison. Something I am apparently awful at. Keep checking back though, I think this one will be a series.
It took me a while, but I finally beat the first three levels of this bitch. Watch as I fail, then later narrowly succeed!
Ever played Roller Coaster Tycoon? Or maybe Theme Park Tycoon? Or even Hospital Tycoon? If you answered yes to any of those questions you likely already know about Game Dev Tycoon. If not though, do I ever have a video for you! Game Dev Tycoon is the tale of one mans plan to build the biggest empire in video game history, and I’m not referring to Electronic Arts. You start in a nebulous year sometime in the late 70′s or early 80′s and play forward through video game history all the way up to the near future. Along the way trying to develop and design and dream up the best video games money can buy.
I played a bunch of Receiver recently, and as frustrating as it is I recorded it anyway. Recently released on Steam Greenlight this little gem will cause you to have so much fun you might pull your hair out.
