A classic hack-n-slash title, renowned the world over as possibly the best ever made. However it’s been around for 17 years, having debuted in 2000. Therefore, it’s time to finally pick the game up once more and scrutinise it deeply. I will compare it to games before, around and after it to see if it still maintains the title of best hack-n-slash around. The gloves are off, Lord of Terror!
I remember saying during my review of One More Dungeon that rogue games may not work for first person shooters, then I reminded myself of the fantastic Heavy Bullets which made me backtrack on this statement a bit. I also forgot about the game which I am going to talk about today and that is Tower Of Guns. The game is available for OSX, Windows and Linux from a number of different online retailers, which can all be found on the developers’ website.
I’ve rocked out to plenty of songs on older Guitar Hero titles, from Guitar Hero 3 and Guitar Hero World Tour, as well as their rivals in Rock Band. In fact, I used to be pretty good, if I do say so myself. I can still play Expert on some Guitar Hero titles… Until I was met with Guitar Hero Live, which took all we knew about the series and changed it in a drastic way. For better or for worse, I’m here to talk about Guitar Hero Live and what makes it different from other Rhythm games of the same ilk.
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. From DC Comics Deck-Building Game, to the curious Kickstarter-backed title, Barbarossa, there’s a lot of diversity in a relatively niche sub-genre of deck games. Contributor Murray Butler has returned to offer his insights in this Sci-Fi inspired deck building title, Star Realms.
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.
We’ve had a few weeks of inactivity on our YouTube channel whilst we prepared for Kitacon and the last GeekOut Bristol Meet… But now we’ve returned and we’ve got some new games to get recording and we’re starting our podcasts over on the platform! Read on to find out more about our upcoming schedule.
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.
Since it’s one of our current Let’s Plays, featuring more important Sus Sapiens than Tomba, we have a look at Beyond Good & Evil. Is it any good or is it just another game that gets over hyped due to nostalgia? Timlah investigates the reporter and her epic action adventure.
Stonekeep is a classic RPG adventure game. You take the helm of Drake, a brave young man who saw his home ripped apart before his very eyes by the evil Khull-Khuum. Drake is encouraged by the Goddess Thera to defeat Khull-Khuum by returning to his home of Stonekeep. Khuul-Khuum however has other plans, as he imprisons Thera. Join Timlah as we play though this exciting classic adventure.
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!
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.
