Overall not that bad, I wanted to play these games anyway, more or less
We start with Adventures of Shuggy.
As far as I can tell you play as batman, but you don't fight crime, you instead have to traverse all of these ridiculous obstacles and jump around and stuff. Once you collect all the green gems you beat the level, which I think is how batman is so rich. Pretty fun game, not as masochistic as Super Meat Boy. It's more of a 1 viking The Lost Vikings.
Next game: AI War: Fleet Command
anyways if you can understand even half of what is going on in these screenshots, you will be doing better than me. AND I'VE BEEN PLAYING IT FOR 5 AND HALF HOURS NOW.
Needless to say this game was not marketed to be enjoyed by the masses. It has a ton of depth and strategy, but you have to shovel through so many submenus and extremely tiny tooltip text that it's likely you will never find it. This game is hard.
Next is Alan Wake's American Nightmare which should be good. Alice is downloading.
There is an Arcade mode which is probably worth playing, but not now. It's time for Alice: Madness Returns
The game itself is pretty cool, it's very dark with hinting to child prostitution, abuse and exploitation. Alice is working with a therapist to forget her memory of her entire family being consumed in flames and she ends up in Wonderland once again but Wonderland is definitely not how she last left it.
I've only played through the first chapter so far, but I'd have to agree with most of what others have said, it's well made the jumping puzzles may be frustrating (or not) and the fighting is only hard when there's a bajillion of them.
Pretty great game overall. My only complaints are the lock-on targeting often is way more problematic in large fights than it is useful, and there's parts of the game where it just steals camera control from you for no apparent reason. Sometimes it's to point you towards where you are supposed to go but it's annoying nonetheless. The most similar comparison I can draw for this game is probably Psychonauts. They have a lot of similarities in combat, platforming, and storytelling. I think I like Psychonauts more than Alice, I like it's story and overall style better and just generally had more fun playing it. But Alice is a damn fine game and worth playing by anyone that likes the Alice in Wonderland story (albeit an exceedingly dark version) or that enjoyed Psychonauts.
Next is Alien Breed 2, which I need to download first.
As you can see I found Raz too
I got it for free like a lot of you did (i'm assuming) from that first big Steam Summer Sale event of ridic. It's a remake of an old Atari game by Team 17 where you play the main beefcake of pain. Your ship has jumped out of hyperspace and was immediately collided into by a larger "ghost ship" and with your ship lodged into the ghost ship you are losing orbit and beginning to crash into the nearby planet. Luckily you are beefcake and have gun and can kill all the aliens on the ghost ship so that whatever scheme Officer MIA (yeah that's her name) comes up with to free the ship can be tried. So far it plays like single player Alien Swarm or Shadowgrounds and I'd say both of those games are more fun. Alien breed 2 has you walking around at Deadspace walk speed fighting waves of aliens which lends the game to more of a survival kind of situation rather than run and gun like in Shadowgrounds. I'm nearly halfway done with the story mode as I am on the 3rd mission of 5.
The graphics are decent, the music is ok, and the story is pretty meh. Which kind of describes this whole game. At least I got it for free right?
The game mostly accomplishes it's goals. It's a mostly mindless survival shooter which is pretty good for the stress relief I suppose. Mostly though the repetitiveness of the levels and environment as well as the enemies makes the game really start to drag. I'm glad to be done with this one, there may be some decent replay value here with co-op or hardcore modes, but other games do a much much better job of it.
Next game is Alien Swarm, which is a boss game to play with other people and I don't really want to play it alone, so if anyone wants to play some with me i'll be in irc, or you can skype me, or steam msg. While I wait I might play some of the game after this which is Alien Zombie Megadeath.
One ugly mofo on the monorail
Easily the most annoying part of the game. This turret doesn't stop moving, it continuously rotates depending on which way you aim which gave me a headache and the enemies can't really hurt you so it's like 2 minutes of unnecessary torture.
Protip: if you can risk it, it's best to really save your medpacks. At the start of the next level you get full HP so be a man!
This game is an arcadey style platformer where you are a space man and have to clear out these pesky alien zombies with your trusty laser pistol. There's powerups and crystal shards which raise your score multiplier so you can get dem points. The game requires you to do specific things on each level to unlock the medals, which are needed to unlock the later levels in the game. Bonus stages can also be unlocked, but since these are just survival mode get as many points as possible, they aren't necessary to completing the game for this challenge. I'm at just 4 levels away from beating the game, but I have to farm up medals to unlock the last stages which has been somewhat daunting.
As you can see the game doesn't take itself too seriously, which is a good thing
You will see the you failed screen A LOT
Each level can unlock 4 medals, some of the requirements are a little crazy though.
yeah here's the level:
As an interesting aside I got a funky glitch to happen, while unlocking the final level I managed to make all enemies stop spawning in a bonus stage. I just stood around for 2 minutes and then had to restart the level.
Up next is All Zombies Must Die!, which can't be more infuriating than level 39.
There's lots of collectible items you can find, but their uses can be dubious at best
To slow down the zombie outbreak there are these sentry walls which can get quite sassy at times
Leveling up requires visiting the restroom in your home base... don't ask
OMG CRAZY MUTAN ZOMOMBIE
The last level was kind of insane, not because it was hard but because it was SO FUCKING LOUD HOLY SHIT. Perpetual airstrikes blowing up your ears OP!
Next is Alpha Protocol, should be nice change of pace to these more arcade-like games I've had in a row.
One time I was being charged down by a guard after exchanging cursory smg shots. I timed my melee attack to instantly knock him out as he dove in on me. Amusingly he glitched out and just stood stock still even though I had already knocked him out. Then suddenly he just laid down.
That guard found out why you don't get jelly donuts.
