Since it is more of a challenge to review a #Steam Early Access game. Yet most of use are still very keen to playing Windows #games with Wine. And since this is our first experience with Dead Cells.

INTRO

Half Life is a cornerstone of PC gaming.  When it was released back in 1998 it broke sales records, was critically acclaimed, and revolutionised the FPS action genre.  Half Life 2 continued that legacy and the rest is glorious history.

Fast forward to today and Half Life 2 has aged well enough that you can still play and enjoy it without the graphics being so mind numbingly ancient it makes you want to poke your eyes out. The same can’t be said about Half Life 1 though.

Even if you have not heard of them before, it’s likely you’ve played one of their RPG’s before. Think Star Wars KOTOR 2, Pillars of Eternity or even Fallout New Vegas.

Slayaway Camp, an 80’s slasher, sliding puzzle game.. Obviously.

Slayaway Camp, an 80's slasher, sliding puzzle gameI had never heard of Blue Wizard Digital before loading ‘Slayaway Camp’ for the first time, but since playing this puzzle game I think I’ll be keeping a close eye on them.

FTL: Faster Than Light Review on PC

FTL: Faster Than Light Review (PC/Mac/Linux)

“So what’s this FTL game you guys have been raving about?” I asked my friend, attempting a more gentle phrasing of “what’s this thing you won’t shut up about?”

“You remember that Battlestar Galactica episode called ‘33’?” he said. “Where they have to make a faster-than-light jump every 33 minutes, or else they’ll get blown up by the Cylon fleet?”
