I absolutely suck at strategy games. Even light-strategy games really. I think I just don’t think far enough ahead when playing a video game. This to me is what Tooth and Tail really gets right, it’s quick and fluid combat through units is so easy to get to grips with you’ll be forming your own menagerie of bandits in no time to take down the various rival factions. Pocketwatch Games have really pulled it off again, just like they did with Monaco in 2013.
I have played Tokyo 42 for at least an hour every day for two weeks now. This game. I love it. I’m sure many other reviews will cite SMAC Games, the developers, references to their influences being GTA2 and Syndicate. Although I can see why they’d say that in an effort help new players understand, I do feel that Tokyo 42 falls confidently into a realm all of it’s own devising. Tokyo 42’s opening moments hold your hand just enough to show you the basics then back off and let you dig into the sandbox with all toys immediately available to you.
To date, Harry has now only written two reviews for Saving Content, but he plays lots of games we are otherwise already covering. Though, he’s also playing games that aren’t on many people’s radar, which makes his list one to look for as it may present games to you that maybe you hadn’t heard of before.
I don’t particularly enjoy strategy games. I don’t know what it is, but if a game requires just a little too much thinking, I have practically no desire to play it in my downtime. I’m a lazy casual I suppose. Though Planet Coaster… Planet Coaster did something to me. I played Theme Park and Theme Hospital as a kid. But at that time I had no concept of winning or losing in a video game – maybe I just never beat the first level.
To date, Harry has only written one review for Saving Content, but it hasn’t stopped this self-proclaimed “Designer / Developer by day and Designer / Developer by night” from playing more games throughout 2015 and giving you his thoughts on them.
There’s certainly not much that can be said about Galak-Z: The Dimensional on PC that has not already been said about its very recent PS4 outing back in August. See here for the original review this article is an extension of. However the PC edition does have a few quirks and niceties that I think bare worth bringing to light. Mainly just things that I personally like to know about before purchasing a video game.
