Freelancer is still missing, I loved that game so much, however seeing as I can't find anywhere selling it I guess that is fair enough to leave it off the list.

Um... that art style is like lego on zomboids. Kerbals were excessively cute as well as incredibly intelligent, this might be smart but the art is hairy.

Well if you can't afford a house might as well get a great PCReply

That's the spirit! :)

They can make it all the way to Mars but can't work out how to make batteries that store solar energy? Who cares I'll buy it.

How can they call it Gull Wing if it isn't hinged? I didn't want a gull wing case before but now I doReply

I know, right? Just how satisfying it would be, no matter how impractical...

I have had this game on my wishlist for some time, however in reading your preview I don't notice you ever saying you had fun, which is not good.Reply
Robert Zak Avatar

It was fun - my run just happened to be disastrous. I'm sure I'd have had a better time jumping into the 'Explorer' mode rather than into 'Rogue', but I threw myself in at the deep end. So don't base your decision on my chaotic personal experience, because yours will inevitably be very different.


As I mentioned, people around me had a much nicer time with it, and part of the joy of games like these is the strange - sometimes disastrous - scenarios that the procedural generation throws up at you. One bad run isn't going to put me off.

The story of Destiny, was a binary rinse and repeat, collect and deconstruct, grind until you are too numb to care affair. It belongs in my top 3 games of buyer's remorse.Reply

I felt exactly the same at launch, but it's much better now. When was the last time you played?
