My brother and I didn't get along when we were kids. However, even we had some things we could do without yelling at each other. It was only a handful of things, but they were there and they are the most precious childhood memories now, of course. One was how he taught me playing table-tennis. … Continue reading First Impressions: C64 Mini
I got the game, Urban Empire, as a Christmas present from bookahnerk. It released on January 20, so there was quite some aniticipation built up there. I had watched a few streams about the game and read a few articles from gaming websites (and a German gaming magazine), but I didn't read too much about … Continue reading Urban Empire: First Impression Review
Bookahnerk had told me about Otherland long before the MMO was in the news as Otherland is one of his favourite books and Tad Williams is one of his favourite authors! This is the main reason this game even caught my attention. We had both watched the gamescom trailer and really liked what we saw … Continue reading Otherland MMO – First Impressions
Atlas Reactor is currently in alpha and they are currently holding their "alpha sneak peek" event until February 24. Since there is no NDA for this event, I can write about my impressions. Hurrah! Just in case you missed it, I will repeat myself here: This game is in alpha! A lot is subject to … Continue reading Atlas Reactor: First Impressions Review
In general, I really despise permadeath in games and stay away from games where I am forced to play with this feature. With my playtime being limited due to my job and other stuff I also want to do in my free time, it just seems so frustrating having to start all over again because … Continue reading Sunken – First Impressions Review
(Update: They have added the "save last session" feature with their update on January 22, 2016) Steam's Winter Sale just finished and throughout it, you could gain Steam trading cards for looking at the "Explore" queue of the store. I like getting those cards to sell them. Hey, even a couple of cents are nice … Continue reading First Impressions Review: Gremlins Inc.
I've previously written about Valhalla Hills and my impressions from the outside, but now you can get an impression piece from me from the inside! I was the lucky winner of the grand prize of Blaugust and received a Steam game that I could choose. While I have lots of games on my wishlist, only … Continue reading Valhalla Hills: First impressions
I have seen the name "Project Gorgon" quite often before, but never actually read what it was about. But after reading Syp's impressions, I figured it's time to try it out myself. They have started their Kickstarter campaign, but you can actually try out the game for free. I like this a lot, because it … Continue reading Project Gorgon: First impression – Blaugust Day 4
Trove launched last Thursday and a lot of people are curious whether this game is any good. I will try to give you an impression of the game, but will try to keep it short(ish). There is a quite simple reason for this: This is the 4th time that I'm writing down my impressions of … Continue reading Post-launch Impressions: Is Trove a good game?
Update (July 18, 2015): This post is outdated! Go here for a newer blog post. Trove is the first game that I have been following this closely since alpha. And so it's probably not a big surprise that it did not only get a "First Impressions Review" (in alpha), but a Second Impressions Review (in … Continue reading Trove: Open Beta Impressions Review
