Seen At PAX West 2016: Crashlands


Let me start out by saying that Crashlands is not my kind of game. Resource collection and building, even when accompanied by quests, just don’t draw me in.

Daily Scoop: September 20, 2016 – The Sims 3 on sale at Steam

I wish I had an exciting game-related story to tell from last night! But I’ve been so swamped with work that last night was nothing but lesson plans, homework, and a brief break to eat dinner.

I was hoping to get a chance at their most recent game, Pit People, previously known as the very descriptive Game 4. I sat down with a buddy, grabbed my (surprisingly heavy) custom arcade stick, strapped on some headphones, and got down to cooperative business. (more…)
