Almost a year ago, I had an Early Access version of this game and though I liked it, I never really went back to it because I didn’t want to burn out on the game before it was even completely done. Now that it is, Mercenary Kings is even more fun then it was back when I first played it. It’s not perfect and asks you to do some nonconventional things compared to most games of it’s type but it didn’t stop me from playing over 30 hours of it in the past month. I’ve already given my intial thoughts on the game back in the Early Access version, so I’ll just say, it’s a terffic game to be playing on my PS4.
Can we talk plainly for a moment? Goat Simulator is fucking silly. Whatever emotions the above picture rouse in you is probably what you will feel about this game when you play it. It’s full of oddball surprises, some more rewarding than others, but at the end of the day, your experience with this game isn’t too much bigger than what you’ve done between home screens.
I didn’t review it; I couldn’t review it.
The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3
As a more simplistic, straight forward entry in the series, it also serves as the most poignant and important. Bigby has opportunities to have uncharacteristically soft moments with advisaries, as well as a bit of role reversal with Snow White. The lack of substantial action sets really allow you to reap what you’ve sown narratively so far, having multiple chances to see how your interactions with characters in the past have shaped their lives presently.
It’s not completely devoid of action, though. An early shootout serves less as a fight and more as the appropriate plot pushing event. The legitimate brawl happens at the end, when we as the viewer finally get to see what all the fuss about Bigby is. His embrace of his inner beast serves as a gratifyingly bloody punctuation mark on this pivotal chapter.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch
I’ve been following Octodad since it’s first premiere at E3. Seemed like just a dumb game I could get into for a day and just enjoy for what it is. Though all these things turned out to be true, I was taken aback by how heartfelt the story was. Now I’m not saying this is the best story or even a good story but to see what Octodad does to be the best father and husband he can be for his family was very sincere. Other than that though, it’s a really stupid game in the best way. Get a couple of friends together, have a few drinks, and give this hilarious game a shot.
