442053511_preview_new_5

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Formula Fusion, an action racing game that combines the best from Wipeout and F Zero in order to create a game that reinvents the arcade racing genre. Being a huge fan of F Zero, I was excited to see this game pop up on Greenlight. Racing through futuristic environments at ridiculous speeds is something that ...

AAA vs Indie: Another Meaningless Assassin’s Creed Subtitle

Assassin's Creed 6

News of the latest Assassin’s Creed makes me wonder. Do we need another one? Haven’t we had enough meaningless subtitles? Meaningless collectibles infesting the mini-map? Meaningless and tedious – so very, very tedious – framing stories? Of course, it doesn’t matter what I wonder. The yearly arrival of a new AssCreed is as inevitable as death and annual EA Sports ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Okhlos

screen1

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Okhlos, a unique take on the action-roguelike genre. In Okhlos, you take control of an angry mob of ancient Greek citizens. First of all, it is most likely pretty obvious as to why this game was chosen for the spotlight. Controlling an entire angry mob? Come on, that sounds like one of the most intense ...

“Create a custom space fleet, lead it into battle and fight for control of the galaxy!” This is the sentence that I first read about Starfall Tactics, and it immediately led to me wanting to know more about the game. Space has always been a fascination of mine, and from space sims to RTS games such as Homeworld, I’ve lost ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Sentinels

download (1)

Today’s standout on Greenlight is Sentinels. Sentinels is a combination of elements of tower defense and the skills involved in first-person shooters. While games such as Toy Soldiers have taken similar mechanics and implemented them successfully in the past, it is still nice to see another game trying to put a spin on the tower defense genre. For me, tower ...

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Blues and Bullets, a story-based detective game. First off, I’d like to freely admit that I am a sucker for a good detective mystery. I love games like the Tex Murphy series and L.A. Noire, and it’s really great to see something of the like coming out of Greenlight. My interest in Blues and Bullets ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: The Human Gallery

download

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on The Human Gallery, a horror game that foregoes the jump scares and focuses entirely on messing with your head. Horror games are definitely not one of my favorite genres, as they often end up being poor recreations of each other with little substance and cheap jump scares. I’ve always felt like horror games were all ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Gridberd

gridberd

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Gridberd, a first-person survival horror game by Wareberd. Gridberd is developed using Cryengine 3, which goes a long way to providing the very realistic and well-done visuals that you’ll notice in the trailer and the screenshots. As has been pointed out in the comments I’ve seen about the game, it looks a lot like P.T, ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Gunnheim

Mayhem

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Gunnheim, a top-down shooter with a strong focus on bringing back the classic fun of local multiplayer experiences. Unfortunately, in the age of internet and minimal face-to-face interaction, couch co-op is not even close to being as popular as it once was. However, I have seen a greater public outcry for local multiplayer recently, and ...

There are those who believe that if a game does not provide a certain level of entertainment, then it is not worth the time to play. However, on the other side there are those who say that a game doesn’t ...
