$20 Game of the Week: Pro Wrestling X (PC)


Are you sick of sim heavy games like WWE 2k and Fire Pro? Are you wishing for a return to the simple, yet fun era of wrestling games? Do you still play on your N64 emulator? Well, check out Pro Wrestling X, a title that has been in development for over a decade, and is now on Steam early access, meaning that while you can purchase the game, It’s not complete, but you can submit feedback and suggestions on the game’s development. More often No Mercy than not, developers abuse this practice to ship half-assed games they have no intention of completing. However, Wrestling Gamers United, PWX’s developer is dedicated to delivering their game, informing fans of new updates almost on a weekly basis. As for the game itself, it looks impressive so far. Although animations are lacking, the characters are large and well detailed, and there is a nice variety of moves available along with a rudimentary create-a-wrestler. Hopefully it won’t be much longer before this leaves early access.



$20 Game of the Week: Project X Zone 2 (Nintendo 3DS)


I love crossovers. Whether it’s Super Smash Brothers, Capcom vs SNk, King of Fighters, Warriors Orochi, Marvel vs Capcom, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, or really, anything vs Capcom, there is just something special about taking players from one company and either putting them against or teaming them up with characters from another company. Thus, when Project X Zone hit the Nintendo 3ds in 2012, bringing together characters from Capcom, Sega, and Namco, I had to check it out. I was not disappointed. Of course in 2015 when a sequel was announced with a 2016 release date, that became an instant must-watch game for 2016. Again, I was not disappointed.

$20 Game of the Week Double Shot: Shaolin vs Wu-Tang & Kings of Kung Fu (PC)


I’m sure many of us remember those Saturday Afternoon Kung-fu flicks. It’s difficult to look at films like Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, Dance of the Drunk Mantis, and Five FIngers of Death and not see the inspiration for modern day fighters such as Tekken and Mortal Kombat. Hell, look at Fei Long and all the other Bruce Lee look-alikes you see in various fighters. Kings of Kung Fu and Shaolin vs Wu-Tang is a pair of fighters from jae Lee productions that pay tribute to these old movies. For a pair of independently developed fighting games, these aren’t half bad.

$20 Game of the Week: Ridiculous Fishing (iOS, Android)

Ridiculous_Fishing_cropped_logoVlambeer’s (Super Crate Box, Luftrausers) 2013 mobile fishing game, which is an enhanced version of the company’s flash browser game Radical Fishing, is perhaps more famous for the developer’s battle with the developer of a cloned game. To make a long story short, shortly after beginning work on a mobile version, developer Gamenauts released Ninja Fishing, an game that had a similar style of play. The game became an instant success, and this discouraged the developers to a point where they temporarily scrapped the project. However, after winning awards for their game Super Crate Box, the team decided to scrap everything and rebuild Ridiculous Fishing. Thankfully the game was a success, and is one of the best games available on mobile platforms.

$20 Game of the Week: Ubermosh Vol. 3 (PC)

ubermosh

Some games push the envelope in graphics, gameplay, and storytelling, redefining genres and creating new experiences. Ubermosh Vol. 3 is not one of those games. It’s simply a fun arcade-style game that’s addictive and is good for killing a little bit of time. As a female cyber-demon-samurai-type thingy, you last as long as possible against unending waves of enemies. You can use your sword to cut bullets and pick up various guns that help blow them apart. Vol. 3 is actually the third revision of this game, and currently it is the most refined. The game is available for only $2 on Steam, and it goes on sale all the time. If you’re a fan of old school arcade-style action, check it out.



$20 Game of the Week: The Westport Independent (PC, Linux, mac, iOS, Android)

The-Westport-Independent

Much has been made about the media and the role it plays in daily life. Also, much has been made about censorship and its role in the media. With this past week’s election, many people have different opinions on the media and its role in politics. Double zero double zero’s indie title The Westport Independent takes aim at the press and censorship. Like 2013’s Papers Please, it’s a low resolution title that is easy to play, but makes its players think about a major hot button topic.

$20 Game of the Week: Shadows of the Damned (Xbox 360, PS3)

shadow_damnedps31

With yesterday being Halloween, it’s only fitting that we have horror inspired $20GOTW. Produced by Goichi Suda (Killer 7, No More Heroes) and Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Devil May Cry), scored by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), and released by EA, Shadows of the Damned is a horror action-shooter that’s barely more than the sum of its parts, however, it’s still a decent game. Playing as demon hunter Garcia Hotspur, you return home to find your girlfriend Paula being kidnapped by a demon named Fleming. Along with your sidekick/weapon Johnson, you travel into hell which resembles a city slum. Players must battle their way through the game’s levels, and can upgrade Johnson to use his weapon abilities. There isn’t much to the game besides some interesting visuals. The gameplay is still solid, and it’s a fun waste of time. While SOTD may not be as psychological as Silent Hill or as esoteric as Killer 7, it’s still an excellent game from two of gaming’s most unique visionaries.
