Three games to be featured this time around.
This is late due to me being busy today. Not as many games as I had hoped to feature but what can you do. Enjoy!
This post is part of a series where I feature the most interesting new releases on Valve’s Steam store. With my first impressions commentary to go along with each. Learn more about this series at this blog post.
Mixed Feature: Grey Cubes
This genre of games are a dime-a-dozen. There are so many that it takes quite a bit to impress me. What did it take this time? It’s the use of real-time physics and 3D styled gameplay. And some actual development. Still not enough to make me want to get it but it looks promising and/or possibly unfair.
I……really don’t know what to make of this game. It reminds me of….something…something that I can’t recall the name of. It’s weird, clearly indie and has a lot of purple UI. Did I mention it’s weird? Cause it’s weird. It feels like a game that forgot to be published from the 90s.
Mixed-Feature: The Curious Expedition
Another FTL-like experience except this time set in the late 19th century. Complete with British-accents, pixelart and a turn-based combat system. Way too early access for my tastes but seems promising enough. Especially if all of the attention its getting from the press is deserved.
Side Note: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
It has finally launched. After much time and fanfare, CDProjectRED’s open world title has launched. To very positive reviews so far. For myself, I’m finishing up my review of The Witcher 2. It’s in the cards to review Witcher 3 as well as Witcher 1. My current ETA on a Witcher 3 review is fall of this year right now. But I think that’s an optimistic date at best. I am slightly concerned with direction to open world version over the more directed experience of previous titles. They have bitten off more than they can chew and while initial reviews are good, well, that can change.
Thanks for reading as always!
