Should I buy on Steam Split/Second: Velocity, a #videogame I already bought twice in my life on console, and arguably one of the best arcade racing game of all time?

I've been collaborating with an italian #gamedev, we made this #mobile #game, is not as finished (at least visually) as we would like, but we had to move forward in order to participate in another project with other dev and a musician. #videogame #roguelike
It's a #card based game. Give it a try if you like and have a great week!
#minireview #videogame Unfortunately, Battle Brothers is turning out to be one of those games where you realize you should have done something different several hours earlier. I am not amused.
#VideoGame #MiniReview So far Battle Brothers by @OverhypeStudios is every single game of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay I attended in high school: Germanic town names, no magic user, endless comparisons between different weapons, repetitive quests, and a lot of fun.
#MiniReview #VideoGame Playing Subnautica after my aborted No Man's Sky playthrough is like a breath of fresh air. Meaningful level design, dramatic story-telling, world coherence, easier inventory management, almost every aspect is more compelling.

Mini #videogame review: I'm trying too hard to like Dead Cells by Motion Twin that I see is a good game, but which frustrates me doubly: by being a Rogue-like and a Dark Souls-like. In a similar genre, Rogue Legacy seems to be my personal skill ceiling.
The time hasn't made this better: I still can't play a Sonic game. It's either confusingly fast or frustratingly slow, and the 3D makes things worse.

A Twitch-type encounter

Yesterday I was Lost in Twitchslation. #videogame
Twitch-type encounter
I'm now running on a single machine:
  • Valve Steam
  • EA Origin
  • GOG Galaxy
  • Itch.io
  • Ubisoft Uplay
  • And until recently Desura (RIP)
  • But not Blizzard Battle.net since 2010 but I could have!

Everything is under control.
Mini #videogame #review: I bought No Man's Sky on sale after watching @JP stream it on Twitch, and I have mixed feelings about it. Resources are sparse and inventory is limited, and I feel like these design decisions should be mutually exclusive. Minecraft is a great example of sparse resources with an ample inventory. Borderlands is a great example of abundant loot with a limited inventory. Both at the same time feels punishing for no good reason, especially since 1 item absurdly takes as much space as 250 of the same sort. Otherwise, it is an excellent freedom simulation.
Anyone? #videogame #gameing
Mini-review of Hard West (2015): A well-made turn-by-turn tactical combat game with a strong theme. Forgoes an epic string of random encounters à la XCOM in favor of relatively short scenarios with few but meaningful encounters. Recommended for genre amateurs. #videogame #review

Rant about linear survival management games

I’m growing increasingly tired of those survival management games with a linear path to success where luck is a bigger factor than player decisions. Yesterday I rage-quit Surving Mars because a randomly long dust storm made all my planning efforts useless.

On the contrary, in Frostpunk, there are 2 or 3 ways to obtain all the game’s vital ressouces, and luck only plays a marginal factor in the game, giving agency to the player and a welcome narrative color to what is essentially a numbers game.

Moreover, having multiple ways of reaching the critical survival milestones allows for specific scenarios where some ways are unavailable, essentially forcing the player to play an entire different game.

Olá a todos, sou #novato. Tenho interesse em #cinema, #videogame, #futebol e #xbox.

Mini #videogame #review: Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants (2012) is a classic Caribbean marine adventure game with a tedious economic simulation and confusing battles. Fun was nowhere to be found.

Sometimes I play bad games and I write about it so you don't have to. This time it's Master of Orion (2016).

Anybody remember playing this game? I loved the soundtrack. The original Quake soundtrack was done by Nine Inch Nails, the second was done by Sonic Mayhem.

Video Game Review: Master of Orion (2016)

After a recent Steam sale, I bought a Master of Orion pack including the three original games released between 1993 and 2003, and the last one, released in 2016.

And as a wannabe game designer, I'm not impressed.

I discovered Graveyard Keeper through Steam coupons as it got out of Alpha and released in August 15th 2018, and the game is so stupidly cute with its polished #pixelart that I jumped the gun and bought the #videogame for more than I usually spend for a single game.

This was a good hunch, the mechanics resemble the little I know about Animal Crossing: harvesting, crafting and making the villagers happy running errands. However, the unusual theme gives a nice color to it reinforced by the omnipresent dark humor in the dialogues. The trailer itself boasts an "obligatory dungeon crawling" feature.

Content Warning: Religious themes, some witches are burned at the stake. In cute pixel art, but still.
