Card Game Review: Star Realms

Deck builders are one of the best games to pick up and play over an extended period of time, especially with established companies invested in deck building titles.

Not a Hero – Review

All hail the BunnyLord and his quest to be the mayor! Forget all other potential world leaders like Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Teresa May and Kin Jong Un for they are all pretenders. Although worse than any Brexit back-pedaller, I will deny all knowledge. I’ll claim that I was used for political reasons when all the bullet cases finish hitting the floor and the corridors are filled with bloody corpses. Now before you think I have gone utterly mad I’m here to tell you about an awesome little side scrolling shooter entitled “Not A Hero”. Yep, another one of those pickups during a sale that I grabbed for £1.99, but it’s available at £9.99 RRP from Steam and HumbleBundle.

YouTube and Me: Stonekeep Highlights

Having been playing this dungeon crawler for quite some time now, I’ve come to some conclusions about it: Some I was unable to draw when I was playing this as a young kid. I used to find this game so tricky, but am I finding the same now, as a grown up? Join Timlah as we talk through the game so far.

In this weeks GeekOut Plays, I manage to lop the top bit of the videos off. Aren’t I smart?

Episode 10 – Shoo Snakes Don’t Bother Me

In this episode of GeekOut Plays Stonekeep:

  • I run into a lot of snakes.
  • I kill a lot of snakes.
  • I have a lovely chit-chat with the audience.
  • I use the journal a lot…
  • And I pick on Farli.

 

Episode 11 – The Cylinder Has A Use

Episode 11 is already here (How is this going by so quickly?!) Here’s what it looks like:

  • We uncover a bucket.
  • We kill way more snakes.
    • They kinda look like mini Loch-Ness Monsters.
  • There’s a use for that bucket after all.
  • I edit out a lot of boring stuff.
  • ‘Quirky Dog’ makes a return
  • We find out what that Cylinder is for – And it relates to something I did not think about, but makes so much sense!

As always, let me know what you thought of these episodes in the comments below, over on Facebook and Twitter. Whilst you’re at it, please remember to go and subscribe to our YouTube channel and show us some support. These episodes are fun to make, but there’s a lot of work involved. Next week, I’ll do an article on how I make my episodes and the work that goes into them. Thanks again!


Video Game Review – The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth

The first official DLC for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, this is the Afterbirth of Isaac. With updated visuals to already existing floors, new bosses and enemies as well as a whole new character and items galore, Afterbirth is an inexpensive way to breathe more life into an already exciting roguelike. But is this expansion to the game any good? Timlah has been playing it recently and weighs in.
