In wilds beyond they speak your name with reverence and regret,
For none could tame our savage souls yet you the challenge met,
Under palest watch, you taught, we changed, base instincts were redeemed,
A world you gave to bug and beast as they had never dreamed.
~ From ‘Elegy for Hallownest’ by Monomon the Teacher
Subnautica is an early access open-world survival game, set as its name implies, predominately underwater. That’s right, a survival game set completely underwater. It is only available as single player.
Oh, did I forget to mention it is also set on an alien planet whose underwater inhabitants are not always the most welcoming kind.
Enter the Gungeon is a rouge-lite bullet hell dungeon crawler, where a band of misfits seek to find the ultimate treasure within the mythical and titular Gungeon: the gun that has the power to kill the past.
Before we get to the main post, I just want to apologize for missing the last upload date. The internet has been really uncooperative before it stopped working. We then swapped our internet service provider which meant another day of no internet. Please accept this humble apology and onwards to the main post!
Tales from the Borderlands brings you back to the Pandora. Telltale Games are famous for the episodic style games they have released such as Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Wolf among Us to name a few. Speaking about that, I have yet to play Wolf Among Us…..I’ll get to it. Eventually. Maybe.
The game revolves around two main characters. One is a Hyperion worker called Rhys and a con-artist called Fiona. Include ten million dollars somewhere in there as well. Both of them believe the money belongs to them (and not their “partner”). Throw in a bunch of shenanigans and bandits, the two characters have a task ahead of them.
Note: At the time of this post I have not actually completed Episode one in its entirety. Just throwing that out there now. Opinions/thoughts may change as I progress further.
