On the 21st day of Festivus, Humble Bundle gave to me…..
*GASPS AND RUBS EYES*
I’m seeing double here! Eight games!
Oh wait. Now that I have got my eyes checked and settled with Matt Groening out of court, I can see that there are in fact 4- count’em, FOUR- games today! That’s more then 3! Wow! However, are they good?
OF COURSE NOT!
That was sarcasm. I hope, anyway.
Match Point (9.99)– I’m going to have to say it- I was hoping on not seeing anymore of these games after last year’s bundle. Local multiplayer only- no bots, no singleplayer, no items, Final Destination. Sigh. Anyways, I played the game by myself anyways, and I have to say- it looks like it could be fun…. if you could find someone to play it with you. That’s going to be an “eh” from me.
Board Battlefield (1.99)– A board game thats sort of like chess, but only with three units- Soldier, Missile Launcher, and Tank. Simple but fun- you move each piece, defeating enemies units, trying to secure the enemy flag. Has an online mode, but you can also go against the computer. Not bad!
Grimm & Tonic (9.99)– So many times during this bundle, I have looked at a game and asked myself “This is going to be pretentious indie garbage, isn’t it?”. Well, I think I was right. One of the first texts you see when you start the first episode of this visual-novel is “Slavery was never abolished.” Slavery in this instance being a 9 to 5 job. It then gives you this screen
Picking each one does nothing but chastise you. You have to pick all three to eventually move on.
Then the story begins. Death appears in your living room, and tells you that he doesn’t know what to do with you, because you lack a soul. He gives you an address to go to….. but you also have the option to go back to sleep. Guess what happens if you do so?
Game Over. Bad End.
I hate this game. There- I said it. I just…. can’t. Don’t @ me. CLAPPING EMOJI.
Lost in the Dungeon (5.99)– A neat card game RPG- use cards to fight enemies and find treasure. Very reminiscent of “Hands of Fate” but without the combat sections- just the cards. I can see myself playing more of this one in the future. Another solid title!
FINAL VERDICT– Okay, look. I know I was harsh on Grim Fandango or whatever it’s called (I’m too lazy to scroll up) but I just hate things that think they’re smarter then me. Anyway, I actually give today’s offerings a 3/5. It was actually a solid day, filled with three games and someone’s art house thesis. Okay, I’ll stop. I promise!
