Steamworld Heist - PC

Not sure how I got this, i think it was a humble store giveaway, but i'm enjoying it a lot - its like a much more accessible XCOM with the satisfaction of manually nailing headshots or sick ricochet kills. I like the hat system where you have to shoot enemies' hats off to take them for yourself, which also serves as a missed headshot consolation prize. I'm playing on regular difficulty so am no judge of it on higher levels but i'm getting my turn based combat fix from it.

Coincidence, I started this last night. Only played the first level but didn't find it gripping. Not sure if I will return to it.

Yes?

Played a few hours and felt the same. It's ok, but it hasn't clicked for me.

Night in the Woods (Switch)

I've started the game evening, playing the opening hour or so, and my initial impressions are:

+ Great characters
+ Quirky script
+ Simple but interesting graphic designs
+ I'm taken in by the story
- The guitar / band rhythm mini games really aren't my cup of tea...
+ ...but the computer dungeon mini game is :-)

Early days but overall this seems to be pretty cool.

Also started Knack 2 last night. Feels very similar to Knack so fixed camera may put some off.

Yes?

Just started this myself, not a fan of the guitar mini games either but really digging the rest of it.

Did you happen to try either of the prologues in the extras menu? I tried the first one (Longest Night) but I got to the part where you look at the constilations......couldn’t actually work out what I was supposed to do :lol:

I haven't tried the extras stuff myself, Milner - figured I'd tackle that after the main game. I really do like the ambience about the town... it feels like this is gonna be really enjoyable :) .

It’s a very ‘chill out’ style game isn’t it, just wandering around talking to all the characters......i’m Looking forward to seeing what Mae done previously that the characters keep alluding to.

Predator music from the movie. This is awesome, and surprisingly scary! :shock:


Is that a free upgrade?

Coming from a big Advance Wars fan, I don't think Tiny Metal is very good. The AI is bad and so is the story/writing. In terms of gameplay and mechanics it seems okay, but with rubbish computer opponents (and no multiplayer - yet), it's not that fun. The scoring system isn't very good either. It might get good with later patches but we'll see.

Wrote a review on it the other day here.

I'm alternating between a few games at the moment. Mainly GTA V which I'm enjoying.

Yep. In truth it took us both by surprise that it was already patched in.

I've been going through Xenoblade Chronicles 2 since Christmas. On Chapter 4 and I'm really enjoying it. Starting to get decent at combat, it's very satisfying to pull of combos, and the story and characters keep my interest. Soundtrack is phenomenal.

My main at the minute is Skyrim, though I do keep popping back to Star Wars Battlefront II every once in a while.

Pokémon Crystal, Skyrim (again), Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and replaying Zelda BOTW on Switch after putting 100 plus hours into the Wii U version. Skyrim and Pokemon seem to be my main games on the go currently, despite the fact I know I should be playing more Xenoblade Chronicles 2 instead.

It’s early for me to say but I’m finding it “okay” it’s really easy at the moment but I assume it will become more tricky as I progress

I'm currently splitting my time between three games, The Sims 4, Call of Duty WWII, and the brilliant Cities Skylines (all on PS4).

My Cities Skylines town now has a population of 200,000!
