In the video: I will be reviewing the new PC shooter: Neighborhorde, and analyzing the nostalgia this game gives off.
Game Description: Neighborhorde is a couch co-op shoot-em-up where you and your team of friends use toys as weapons and game-changing superpowers to try to survive the attacks of evil robots and zombie Abe Lincolns.

I assume you have played an RPG; since this is a PC game you’ve probably played Skyrim right? Well if you have you probably at one point played spell sword where you attack primarily with some sort of melee weapon and then occasionally make use of some sort of spell to do some damage. Well, Lichdom Battlemage is that minus the sword and with double the destruction.
Lichdom Battlemage is tagged on steam as an RPG, and steam said it was similar to the likes of Skyrim. However, this to me was one simple thing… DOOM with spells. The game doesn’t make use of any currency, and not much of any open world, but it is very much run-and-gun with spells. The only things you collect, are little modifiers that you can use to craft and upgrade spells...
Ultimagus has the look, feel and sound of an old arcade game. The sort you’d play as a kid in the early 80s for a quarter. I’m sure that, back then, this would have hit the sweet spot between difficulty and challenge. Being a 2D hack and slash with shooter elements it evokes the shooter arcade games of the time. Like Galaga or Galaxian with a landscape format and medieval/fantasy theme. Some might compare it to a tower defense. To be perfectly honest the ‘set it and forget it’ traps and spells are less tower defense and more just a tactical play mechanic. Like land mines or C4 in Metal Gear games.
Although a thematically retro title I expected more of a game built in 2017. I enjoy difficult and complicated games. I’ve sunken countless hours into Dwarf Fortress...
As I browsed the art assets the publisher placed on the Steam page for this game I had a sinking feeling someone had taken a 90s era PC game and uploaded it to Valve’s storefront. Boy was I ever wrong. Not only was my fear unfounded I was also delighted when I got the chance to play it for myself. In Captain Kaon you play as the titular heroine. Or should I say Anti-heroine? As an ex-con with a checkered past and a commuted sentence Kaon comes fully equipped with an attitude, a lot to prove and an itchy trigger finger. As one of the few remaining gunship pilots she’s been given command over the Argus. The flagship of the defense fleet...
Its one big question for gamers, will Nintendo Switch be a interesting console for indiegame developers? The answer is yes. There are already indiegames announced for Nintendo Switch, think about the binding of isaac, afterbirth and many others. But these are known indiegames, indiegames we have already played on PC and even on other consoles.
Lets make a list of the good games for the past week. So many games release every week! In this article i only look at games that got released on Steam. I choose games on how they look, what they are about and gameplay. Of course i don’t own all these games, in those cases i have to follow the opinion of other people.
The Land of Dasthir was a game I didn’t expect too much from, being an RPG made in RPGMaker and priced under a dollar. Expectations of RPGs such as a deep system, a medium to long amount of playtime, tons of locations, and a complex story were set aside as I loaded this game up. After playing through to the first battle and dying at it, twice, I either need to skip cheap RPGMaker games or set my expectations even lower in the future.
