One of the things I love about PAX is the variety. Not just video games and board games, but insights into designing, playing, marketing – there is something there for everyone. Steam has revealed the Steam Digital Tabletop Fest starting in a couple of weeks, and it focuses on a very niche area – digital board games!
Hi everyone. I hope you got through another week well! I was exhausted by last weekend. PAX Online has kept me going
I hope you had a great week! How is everything going with you? Are you looking at all the releases and rumours through the tech and gaming spheres at the moment?
Work has me back in my old ways. Yay? Sure, let’s go with ‘yay’. But I did get some gaming in last week, and I am finally back in a space where I can start doing other things. I am belting away at the streaming setup and trying to learn a few new tricks for the site update. But that’s the tech stuff – Monday is for Gaming! So come and see what I got up to in Last Week’s Gaming
Well, another week down. Where does the time go? Again, it feels like I just finished writing Last Week’s Gaming. No wonder I haven’t squeezed in as many games as I would like!
Today, most of Australia is enjoying a long weekend. Here in Queensland, we are back at work. I could have squeezed a few more games! As usual, I played more than I thought at least. What have you been playing?
As I wrote last week, I was really excited Blood Rage was getting a digital implemntation. After having a few games up my sleeve both physical and digital, I thought it was time for a full review. At it’s heart, Blood Rage has been faithfully translated from it’s physical form.
But be warned – if you are playing solo, there are some quirks for the developers to sort out still. If you are playing multiplayer, there are many more severe issues to be sorted.
Here we are in June. End of Financial Year. The time all of the last minute requests start piling in. It’s going to be an interesting round this year. Last Week, I only really played Animal Crossing on the Switch. Well, video game wise. I did play a few digital board game implementations which was relaxing!
What about you? What have you been playing?
Another week down, and I don’t know where it went. One thing that I did enjoy was trying out Dragon Castle during the week thanks to a Steam sale. A great game for a fun conversation and hidden depths, the Mahjong Solitaire inspired Dragon Castle is a game that can be easily overlooked. It’s a pity, because I think a lot of players that would pass on it would find a very entertaining title.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Normally on Wednesdays I like to talk about Kickstarters that make me excited. This week, unfortuntely, none have quite done that. A few made me smile, but nothing to rave about.
Tomorrow though, the Kickstarted board game Blood Rage launches for retail the Kickstarted Blood Rage Digital. That counts, right?
Control is a game that has gotten a lot of hype. Some for the use of Ray Tracing with Nvidia RTX cards, some for the weird story, and some for the frame rate issues on consoles. A lot of the time, this makes Control look like it’s only for certain people.
Well, let me tell you why Control is just an absolute blast to play.
Have a great weekend everyone!
