I Finally Finished: Steamworld Dig

I’ve had this game in my Steam library for some time now, and I finished my first playthough of it. So what is it? The developers outline it pretty well: SteamWorld Dig is a platform mining adventure with strong Metroidvanian influences. Take the role of Rusty, a lone mining steambot, as he arrives at an old mining town in great need. Dig your way through the old earth, gaining riches while uncovering the ancient threat that lurks below

Steam on Linux: An Experiment

DISCLAIMER: I’ve got 20 years of Linux experience, so don’t come at me with the old “You don’t know what you’re doing” card. I tried this experiment as a normal user, not a power user, would. Linux. It’s a great OS for a lot of things, and there are a ton of people that will tell you it’s a great gaming platform. I’m sure it can be, but if you’re talking Steam, you’re in for a bit of pain.

I Finally Finished: Ryse Son of Rome

After Diablo III, I started looking at my list and decided to finally give Ryse: Son of Rome a try. It’s a hack-and-slash game set in, no shock here, ancient Rome. The playthrough was very, very short. 6 hours short, to be exact, and honestly I’m glad I picked this game up when it was on sale. I don’t think I would have been happy had I paid 59.99 for 6 hours of gameplay.

I Finally Finished: Diablo III

It took me long enough, but I finally managed to get through the main storyline of Diablo III. It took me forever, simply because of my massive backlog of games I’ve been playing. I really enjoyed the storyline, and I’m definitely not done with the game just yet. There’s still leveling to do (my witch doctor is currently at level 64) and there’s also Adventure mode. I’m hoping I can hook up with a few friends and play co-op, as I have yet to give that a go.

What Have I Been Playing?

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything, and I apologize for that. Work has been quite busy for me, so I haven’t had time to write. So, what have I been playing lately? Doom (2016) I finally finished up Doom since I last wrote, and I loved every minute of the game. Fast paced, beautiful and lots of blood and gore, just as Doom should be. I still have it installed because I want to check out Multiplayer as well as the Arcade and Snapmap modes.
