January 16 – January 22

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 11:18:51 +0000

Now we’re getting back into the swing of things. This is a good-looking week. My wishlist expanded quite a bit just while researching the list. Don’t worry. I won’t inflict my top-ten list of this week’s releases on you. I’ll only pick one, but believe me when I tell you it’s a struggle.

After a lot of deliberation, I think I’ll go with Torn Tales. No, it’s not funny like some of the other games coming out this week – except in that the premise of fighting an evil bookbinder who has harnessed the power of literature against you reminds me of Witches Abroad, which is my favorite Discworld novel. Your team of literary warriors consists of Snow White, Robin Hood and Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde. So it’s basically Marvel Ultimate Alliance featuring the nerd (nerdier?) versions of Black Widow, Hawkeye and The Incredible Hulk.

I can’t very well pass that up, so Torn Tales gets my nod for Game of the Week.

Bold Predictions 2017

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 15:56:00 +0000

Maybe it's just because 2016 was such a whirlwind, but 2017 feels positively tame as I survey the landscape through my futurescope. Beyond stuff I predicted on the latest podcast, I think survival games will finally begin to wane as the market teeters over much like the MOBAs and MMORPGs that came before it. Shadow of Mordor 2 will be announced and it will take place long before the events in Lord of The Rings. Sean Sands will buy a VR headset. It's prediction time everybody, make yours in the comments and let's see how we do!

Also make sure you look back on 2016 and see how you did. Good luck!

January 9 – January 15

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 11:17:03 +0000

There are a lot of zombie games out this week. Zombies and JRPGs. Sometimes both at the same time.

Fortunately, there is something for those of us who don’t care about zombies, and for those of us who don’t need new JRPGs since we’re still playing Final Fantasy XV. The Behemoth is back, and it’s coming out with Pit People.

In Early Access on PC, but it’s January, so I’ll take it.

You might know The Behemoth as the makers of Castle Crashers, though I fell in love with them with Battleblock Theatre. The humor in both of those games is so good that I’m picking Pit People for my game of the week without even knowing what sort of game it is. Hexagonal tiles seem to be involved, giving me the impression that the game is a cross between Castle Crashers and Heroscape, which is a concept I can very much get behind.

Pit People gets my game of the week.

January 1 – December 31 (2017 pre-game show)

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 12:29:50 +0000

Welcome to 2017! This week there are a grand total of fifteen games scheduled, so rather than torture everyone with picking a handful of indie games nobody heard of yet, we’re going to sell out and look to the year ahead.

Too Long; Didn't Play: Claw and Feathers

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 12:13:56 +0000

And so we come to the end of Danopian December, and of the year more generally. It's been pun, so let's wrap up with Claw and Feathers.
