The survival game 'Rust' has come a long way, I've completely changed my mind about it

By liamdawe, 17 July 2017 at 8:31 am UTC (34 Comments)
Rust is a game I've tried a few times and it never really seemed to click with me, but now after coming back to it after so long I'm finding it to be incredibly fun.

Revisiting Tyranny a few months and patches later

By BTRE, 16 July 2017 at 8:28 am UTC (6 Comments)
Over half a year since release, the RPG from Obsidian has gotten several large patches with free content as well as DLC. I was interested in seeing what had changed and how the game stacked up through multiple playthroughs. Here are my updated thoughts after playing many hours more with the DLC.

Golf for Workgroups is a very weird golf game that's now on Linux

By liamdawe, 10 July 2017 at 10:28 am UTC (6 Comments)
A very serious Golf game, absolutely no fun allowed. This is so you and your work colleagues can go hit some holes and talk about work. Okay, not quite.

World of One is a cleverly designed and rather creepy puzzle platformer that you should consider taking a look at.

Paradigm, probably the strangest game I've ever played is now on Linux

By liamdawe, 23 June 2017 at 7:09 pm UTC (5 Comments)
Paradigm is, and I don't say this lightly, possibly the strangest adventure game I think I've ever played. It starts weird, then it gets weirder and it doesn't let up.

By BTRE, 14 June 2017 at 2:01 pm UTC (1 Comments)
The first of what Paradox is calling an “immersion pack” has been released for the sprawling grand strategy game. I gave it a go, exploring just what they changed for the Russian region and powers.
