Galaxy of Pen and Paper takes the formula of the previous two Knights of Pen and Paper games and goes where no man has gone before– space! Or to be specific, sci-fi parody space!
Ever wish you could run your own TV studio that exclusively produced its own Mighty Morphin Power Rangers-esque super sentai television show? Do you wish that the act of shooting said television show was a turn based strategy challenge not unlike X-COM or Fire Emblem? Well, you have a really specific set of wishes, but also some incredibly good luck, because Behold Studios have created exactly that with their newest game, Chroma Squad. So is it a real morphinomical experience, or should be banished for 10,000 years in a dumpster on the moon? Well, let’s do some sick karate flips (KYA!!!) over the jump and I’ll tell you all about it.
What do you do when you are elected Vice President of the Planet Earth and strange things start going down? You gather all the constitutes you can convince to help you and get to the bottom of things! At least that’s what you do in Citizen of Earth, a new heavily JRPG inspired game from the developers at Eden Industries and published by Atlus. Is the journey to fix the world a worthwhile one? Is battling deadly Telefawns (phone/deer hybrids) or Meloncloudys (sad clouds) worth your precious time– or should your vote go to another canidate? Hit the jump and I’ll fill you in on Citizen of Earth‘s campaign platform.
Man, vampires get all the good games. There’s two great Vampire: The Masquerade games, the Legacy of Kain series, and oh yeah, freaking Castlevania! See what I mean? When was the last time you played a good game about a werewolf? Probably never unless you count, like, Gabriel Knight II or that lame Castlevania Nintendo 64 game. I think it’s about time werewolves got fair representation in games. Oh yeah, and women too (you hear me, Ubisoft?). Well, hey, what do you know, here’s a game called Blood of the Werewolf that has a protagonist that’s both of those things!
In the middle of Microsoft’s ID@Xbox (which is what they are calling their offering of indie games for some reason) game reel there was a blink and you’ll miss it moment of something that looked like a wonderful 1930’s cartoon. That, my friends, was Studio MDHR’s Cuphead. It looks super amazing and has that 1930’s old timey cartoon on lock. It’s apparently some kind of platform run and gun with a fighting game 1 on 1 style. I’m sold! It’s supposed to come out sometime this year. Trailer below!
Hey, it’s another Lego game again, this time with a Marvel Comics flair with Lego Marvel Superheroes! They keep pumping those out like nobody’s business so they can’t still be good, right? Well, you couldn’t be more wrong! TT Games manages to build even more so upon what it accomplished with both Lego Batman 2 and the criminally underrated and underplayed Lego City Undercover (no pun intended) and create a really fun game that really is just a joy to play.
