Autumnal Waterfall 37 – Skullgirls

Ladies and Gentleman(?)

Skullgirls is a fighting game that’s been on PS3 and Xbox360, but now it’s also coming to PC! I’ve been wanting to play it for a while now, but have held off. It’s a fighting game that features an all female cast of improbably proportions. Several of the characters are kind of disturbing, though.

Note, I’m speaking from experience on the PC version. All features might not be available on all platforms at the same time. I hear that patching on consoles is actually a time-consuming and costly process.

Also, get it on Steam. Or if you prefer the console version, it’s on PSN and XBox Marketplace.

It’s Showtime!

The Skull Heart, the perfect gift for any girl. (No, it’s not. Do not give the Skull Heart to anyone.)

Autumnal Waterfall 36 – (Some/No) One Has to Die

AutumnalWaterfall

Welcome to No One Has to Die, a free web game that can be found here: http://die.clay.io/

Of course, this game is lying to you. Someone has to die.

This game is like a visual novel with branching paths. It’s not too long, I beat the entire thing in less than half a hour, but its quite a fun experience going through it. So, someone has to die, and you get to choose.

You are the visitor.

Autumnal Waterfall 35 – Dust: An Elysian Tail

Dust: An Awesome Game.

Super serious. As an example of the Metroidvania style games, Dust is really good. It’s cool, crisp, clear and refreshing. Combat is pretty much a two button system for attacking. As I am using the keyboard and mouse, my 2 keys are the left mouse button and the right mouse button. You perform slick combos with a combination of the 2 keys, get some new moves as the game progresses and kick lots of ass.

Get in on Steam

Tail, get it? Tale, tail? Eh? Eh?

Autumnal Waterfall 34 – Primordia

Welcome to Primordia, a world where humanity has passed away, leaving only robots behind in a post-apocalyptic scape. This is a point and click game made in old pixel style. I’m quite fond of point and click games and this one is no different. I also enjoy exploring these post-apocalyptic worlds. Even with just pixels, they make some pretty nice scenery.

The main character is Hortial Nullbuilt, Version 5. He’s a simple robot on a quest to retrieve the power core to his home. Let’s follow him around and see what he does.

Primordia is available on SteamGog, or you can google for other places.

Autumnal Waterfall 33 – Super Squat Simulator

Are you ready to get into the best shapes of your lives? If so reading this is not going to help you. But if you want to work your fingers to the bone, this will help, for this is Super Squat Simulator-or-or-echo-echo-echo.

You can feel the burn with this game. Start out every computer session with some of this and you will be ready for whatever furious clicking/typing that awaits. So, are you ready?

Or get the game here and squat along.

Autumnal Waterfall 32 – Reus

And I’m back, this time, with a game called Reus. They call Reus a simulation game, though I find it’s more like a puzzle game where you have to adapt on the fly and not hit the wrong hotkey, breaking everything.

Reus has pretty nice visuals, though I didn’t notice the music much. Depending on how much you want to manage things, it can be relaxing or hectic. You do everything in the game through 4 giants that have different abilities. Each level consists of a circular world, and you use your giants to shape them for civilization. Of course your giants move slow as mole asses so if you make settlements too far apart, it’ll take a while to do anything.

Making things hectic are timed challenges where you have to get a certain settlement up to a certain amount of resources. Succeeding gives you more abilities, failing doesn’t really penalize you, but I want to do it anyway.

Now, step into Reus.

This giant does not appear in the game to my knoweldge

Unbeaten Games: The Untold Saga – Episode XVI

Surprise! I’m back early!

So, I had a little bit of spare time on my hands over the weekend and decided to beat Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). Now as most of you know, this was not an easy task. The incredibly long loading times, horrible camera angles, and terrible voice acting made the trek arduous at best. Top that off with having to complete three different stories (Sonic, Shadow, and Silver) and the part where they all meet (the “Last Story”) and you have one hell of a weekend. Despite the challenge, however, I drudged through and came out on the other side with one more game marked off my list.

The task I’m left with now is deciding which game I wish to pursue next…

I’m just kidding. We all know that I’m going to play Tomb Raider (2013) next...

Unbeaten Games: The Untold Saga – Episode XV

Welcome back everyone!

I’m sorry it has taken me so long to post a new update to this blog, but things have been crazy busy since the end of January. Between Mardi Gras, Spring Break, Easter, etc. I’ve have very little time to update, but I’ve had plenty of time to play some games. Without further ado, here’s the newest updates:

At the beginning of February, I finally finished Prince of Persia. I had initially tried to make a video review of the game; however, between my lack of drive and multiple party-like events, I never got around to finishing it. Let me know in the comments below if you’d like me to edit the remaining minute or so and post it for people to watch.

Last night, I completed Phantasy Star Universe...

Autumnal Waterfall 31 – The Journey Down

Hello and welcome to The Journey Down: Chapter One. It is another point and click style game. If you haven’t already guessed, I quite like those kinds of games. This time, it’s a game based around African myths where the characters have an aesthetic reminiscent of African masks. Now, I don’t know much (read: anything) about African myths so I can’t really say how much of it is based on that. But the game is a solid point and click experience. So won’t you join me on the The Journey Down?

Now, this is only chapter on...

Autumnal Waterfall 30 – Ghost Recon Online

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online’s Tactical Cover Shooter’s Open Beta

From now on, I will just refer to it as Ghost Recon Online or GRO. Also, all screenshots for this are taken from the game’s official website. Find the website here.

GRO is a squad based tactical cover shooter. Two teams are pit against each other, mostly in capture the point style maps so far. Will there be more maps later on? Most likely. The game is free to play with a cash shop.

Most of the time, you’re in the third person, over the camera style. You go into first person mode when aiming down gun sights. In the game, you must effectively work together with your team, utilizing cover, suppressive fire and special abilities to defeat the enemy.

What is a tactical cover based shooter? It means get your ass in cover or you’re going to die horribly. Crouch, go prone, whatever you do, don’t try to charge in like an action movie star. Remember, this is an open beta, stuff might change later on.

Unless you are this guy, he has an energy...
