blackfriday

Last Friday was of course, the kick off for the holiday season. No doubt people will be going to war with each other for cheap microwaves and HDTVs in scenes that no doubt rival the WWE Royal Rumble.

$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.



$20 Game of the Week: Soul Sacrifice Delta (Playstation Vita)

Space Rangers HD is a remake of Space Rangers 2 with tons of new content. Space Rangers 2 was already one of the deepest space sims available, now there is even more meat. Developed by SNK Games (not to be confused with SNK Playmore, makers of King of Fighters), Space Rangers allows players to intervene in a three way war between the galactic authorities, space pirates, and a race a alien beings called the dominators. Of course how you choose to go about your business is up to you. You can ally with one faction, engage in economics,or simply become a pirate and attack ships for their valuables. There are several different play modes, from spaceship battles, to text-adventures, and even a RTS mode where you can construct your own robot troops. Space Ranger’s randomness will ensure that no two playthroughs will ever be the same. Although there are some interface issues and translation errors, Space Rangers is sci-fi nirvana that grants players an unlimited amount of freedom. By the way, be back here this weekend for A Midsummer’s beatdown, where we take a look at some of the most adequate and some of the worst in fighting games.



$20 Game of the Week: Hunniecam Studio (PC)

huniecam_studio_steam_1

Not being content with corrupting the match-3/dating sim genre, developer HuniePot has taken it upon themselves to make a NSFW take on the clicker and business management sim genres. Like the studio’s previous effort, Hunniepop, HunieCam studio has been designed with a certain audience in mind. This time around while there isn’t nudity, it still deals with some NSFW themes, so lets keep this away from the young ones shall we?
