PC Gaming Catch-Up Impressions the Ninth

Night Sky

You are a sphere.  You roll around.  The world is detailed in black with some basic background colors.  Sometimes the controls do weird things.  That's my general summary of Night Sky.

It's a strange little platformer.  I tried it for a bit, but if I want a platformer there are many other games that are much better.  I won't be coming back to this one.

Nuclear Throne

Nuclear Throne is an early access game by Vlambeer.  It's an overhead action shooter with pixel graphics.  It's set in a post apocalyptic world and you get your choice of mutant creature you want to play as.  Each one has a unique mutant power.

WASD moves your character.  The mouse aims and shoots.  I really wanted to use a controller to play this game, but it doesn't seem to be supported at the moment.  Maybe that will change as early access progresses.

It's an ok action game right now.  It's a roguelike, which doesn't typically appeal to me, but this one has more potential than most.  I had fun during my time with the game but I probably won't revisit it until it's out of early access and actually has a full release.

Red Faction: Guerrilla

This is my favorite environmental destruction game.  I beat Red Faction: Guerrilla when it first released 5 years ago.  After that I used to revisit it on my Xbox 360 whenever I felt like causing destruction.  The buildings just get destroyed in such a satisfying way.

Your character's main weapons are a sledgehammer and explosives.  The perfect combo for structural destruction.  The weapons and vehicles only get better from there.

I'm glad this is on Steam now.  It used to only be through Game for Windows Live, which is a horrible service.  Now that it's on Steam again I can add it into my gaming rotation for whenever I need to break something.  It's so very very satisfying.
