This was nice to read, especially nice because my husband worked on this game for 2+ years, and I was able to beat it a few weeks ago in front him. I can only imagine how good it feels for him to see things like that. I also want to share this, his post from the night before South Park launched. It still makes me cry…
Best Pacific based game was the Koei SNES game, Pacific Theater of Operation. You could play as either side and it was quite a massive strategy game with turned based tactical combat for a console game.
That was one of the disappointments for me of CoD:WW2 - it seemed very formulaic, the same levels we’ve played again and again, many of which have arguably been done better already by other games.
We should not forget the firsts in WW2, for there were many firsts for minorities during the war.
Operation Chariot was featured at the start of Medal of Honor: European Assault.
Shoshana is a creature you’d expect to be disgusting based on the description but the second she turns up it’s just like... she’s so cute.
that’s amazing! Also Shoshana is the best, I’d 100% buy a Shoshana plushie
Man that is some really confusing perspective on the right hand patent image...
A ha! Now I have a name for this that I can conveniently forget by the time I need to describe it again. :-)
Yeah right. Next you’re going to tell me Bloody Mary isn’t real, and nobody has been levitated by reciting light-as-a-feather-stiff-as-a-board.
Doesn’t mean there can’t be some amazing coincidences. A father of a friend in high school was extremely opposed to them because, when he was in high school, he used one and asked if it had power to kill a bully he didn’t like. It said, yes. The kid died in a car accident not too long after that. I think he has guilt…
There’s a version of this that you can do alone which can be helpful for unlocking answers to questions you know subliminally.
Can we consider it to then be a medium for ones subconscious? From a psychological perspective?
So, my 10 year old son wanted to play Stardew Valley. As tradition, we always start a new game sitting together on the couch. I let him play and he asks me for help if he doesn’t understand something and we sort of fumble through it together. We started playing around 7pm. At 8:30pm, game goes off and he gets ready…
This looks like a game that is going to scratch all of the itches. Highly reminiscent of Frost Troll Tribes for Warcraft 3, but even more in depth. It oozes style, and I like how choices affect more choices around you as it goes - not simply resource acquisition and exploitation.
But... do they lack of any better fuel for the flames, burn the poop?
It looks like a cool game, but I wish it wasn’t so mean. TWoM made sense to be so brutal and unforgiving in order to convey its themes properly, and I really like the concept of this, but I’m just not down for The Walking Dead On Ice.
Nice article, I love city building games, specialy those with a twist like this one. Right now I have my eyes on Surviving Mars and Frostpunk. I hope they release them to EA soon.
