Here’s Humble Bundle again with some grade-A indie games, courtesy of 2017, mostly.

I don’t know how they keep doing this.

The Down Under Humble Bundle – a tactical decision

Oy mate.

Put another shrimp on the barbie.

Okay that’s all I’ve got.
The full extent of my “down under” vocabulary.
Let’s move on to the games. Or skip everything and go Humble!

In Dead Space, everyone can hear you scream

Many, many years ago, I wrote my very first reviews.

One was about the survival horror masterpiece Dead Space. Others were about the decline of decent Dragon Ball fighting games…

But before I could release these silly and naive pieces of prose into the world, disaster struck. My gaming mindset and ideas became suppressed for many years after, until I recently was made Whole again.
Time, however, had moved on as well, and so did the Dead Space franchise. Books, movies, comics, spin-offs, DLC, mobile games, micro-transactions…

They did it all.

And now, the end has come.

Defunct as of October 2017

It’s that time of the year again

High time to pack your bags, grab one last sandwich, and hit the road to whichever festival strikes your fancy.

 

 

See you all in a few weeks, for more game rants and other word porn!

But for now, have a complementary KISS / “Sailor Moon” crossover.

It’s … glorious.

 

 

Right up until the moment where it just gets too fuckin’ weird.

This article is not about tits.

Well, maybe it is, a little.

But it’s more about three upcoming fighting games who try to redraw the rules of engagement, or give fans exactly what they want.

Besides tits.

 

But also tits.
