PC Gaming Catch-Up Impressions the Nineteenth


When I picked this one up I didn't realize it was a Game for Windows Live game.  I've had enough trouble with that service over the years to know not to even try to make it work.

I got the game to launch but it wouldn't let me play without signing into Games for Windows Live and jumping through all the hoops.  I gave up right there.

Goat Simulator

It's unexpectedly fun to be a goat!  Well, a goat with a super headbutt who is a jerk to everyone.  Goat Simulator is a ton of fun!

I spent most of my time in the first two areas they originally included with the game and I already feel like I got my money's worth.  I haven't even touched the Goat MMO Simulator expansion that they added for free.  I'm going to be revisiting that soon.

The Banner Saga

The Banner Saga has come a long way since I played it in Beta.  I'm actually pleasantly surprised.  I love the core combat of this game.  If I didn't already have a couple turn based strategy games waiting in the wings I would probably lock down with this one for awhile.

I have a few nitpicks.  The story is slow to start and hasn't really grabbed me.  I'm also not a fan of the unit management I need to do in camp at night.

I appreciate the multiplayer mode, it truly showcases the battle system.  The thing that would really be perfect for me would be a set of one off scenarios of increasing difficulty with pre-selected units.  I wouldn't have to do unit management or drag myself through the story, I could just enjoy the core combat... which is fantastic.
