What I’ve Been Playing

It’s has been a while since I wrote some actual content for the blog. And what better way to snip the ribbon the overhauled site then give you guys a little update about the life, times and games of me. Well, mostly the games. SO, without further ado here is What I’ve Been Playing (Cue cheesy 80’s theme song).

Really cool art


Risk Of Rain

I picked up risk of rain on the steam sale (as you do) and downloaded it (as you do) and almost vomited joy to discover that this praised indie gem was just as fantastic as everyone said it was (as you do). This game strikes the perfect balance of challenge, statistics and actual style that all action RPG’s should strive for. The game feels fluid and it’s really easy to pick up. In fact it’s a pretty simple game with set objectives and a straightforward concept, but there are so many different systems that can be engaged with that hardcore rogue-like fans will find hours of fun here.

And yes it is a rogue like, and yes that can be a turnoff for some, but for risk of rain the roguish elements work in it’s favor. With so many characters to unlock and try out the concept of starting over isn’t really as annoying as it sounds. So do yourself a favor and go pick up this ridiculously fun game.

It’s like this but imagine you suck at it

MechWarrior Online (MWO)

MWO is a super hardcore game. There is really no other way to describe it. It’s deeper than the Marianna trench, Harder than tom Brady’s abs and requires more devotion than scientology. If your going to play this game you’re gonna need to watch at least three beginners guides and spend six hours sucking at everything until you are at least competent, and even then you will probably be laughed out of the match because your mech configuration sucks. And I loved every second of it.

All the keyboard spanning frustration is worth though. When you finally find the right mech, figure out that weapons have and an effective and stop sucking you will feel like a true MECHWARRRIOR! seriously though the payoff is fantastic.

The game is goofier than this guy’s grin

Marlow Briggs And The Mask Of Death

If you are looking for a deep, introspective and pondering game; stop reading here. This is God of War; Self Aware Edition. BUT if you are looking for some dumb combo-tastic, button mashing fun that might make you chuckle, give Marlow Briggs a chance. I honestly don’t think there is much else to say about Marlow Briggs. It is a simple games but if you have five bucks and a little time to spare, have some fun.

So, what have you guys been playing? Let us know in the comments and hope you have wonderful day.
