Phoenix Point: That time we chucked up a youtube clip

Bloody hell I hate adverts.

I’m glad you’ve noticed that you haven’t had to tolerate a cacophony of brightly-coloured shitty flash adverts clogging up the site. Sorry in advance for the unskippable advert on the following video.

More to the point, I’m excited about a game! The chap that created the original X-Com has turned to crowdfunding kickstarer-alike Fig to create his true successor. Lovely.

Bulb Boy comes to the Switch

Wait, I thought Nintendo were only going to concentrate on new games?

They did say that right? Well, I guess this is the first time Bulb Boy’s left the safety of PC-land to console valley.

Now, I’m not saying I had any influence on one of the biggest companies in the world, renowned for doing their own thing, often with baffling result; but I did say Bulb Boy would be most excellent on a phone an’ that’.

Hey, would be nice if they brought over a Towerfall, Black and White Bushido, or some other excellent single-screen local multiplayer titles to a multiplayer handheld.

Anyways, you can read my Bulb Boy pc review here. If you’re in the mood. It’s pretty short.

No… I won’t force you to click more. You can look at the Switch trailer below.

Endless Space 2: Not a review

Endless Space is a 4x space strategy nerd game. I’ll resurrect my quote from my Stellaris review.

Why, it’s a nerd game in which you do a Star Trek. You start with a single planet and attempt to best rival civilisations to take over the galaxy. Hopefully to the soundtrack of an 80’s montage sequence. You’re the best, AROUND!

The first game had interesting races, smooth presentation and was very easy to negotiate.

Yes, I liked it a lot. Now that Stellaris is out the way, I’m very much looking forward to taking over the galaxy again. Always with the taking over the galaxy. Every few weeks. I can’t help it.
