๐Ÿฏ๐ŸŽŽ⚔️ Katana Zero | REVIEW | PC | "A Must Buy For Any Indie Gamer" ๐Ÿฏ๐ŸŽŽ⚔️ #GameDev #IndieGames

Katana Zero is set around a Samurai Assassin type character who can shift through time to kill targets. It’s a 2D action platformer developed by Asjiisoft and published by Devolver Digital. It seems to take something from the Hotline Miami collection, not a lot, but I see some similarities in the game. The game is very fast-paced so be ready to play as a fast, time travelling Samurai with a complicated background.

Have you ever played a video game where you just can’t fathom out how a developer would be able to create such exquisite perfectness?
I’m here to tell you what you already know and that is that Dead Cells is the epitome of perfection.
This game is slicker than the Fonz and more addictive than a kilogram jar of Nutella.

It Came From Space and Ate Our Brains is a stylised voxel-based shooter that was originally released on PC in 2015 and is reminiscent of titles such as the mighty dead Nation and has shades of Neon Chrome.

It Came From Space and Ate Our Brains is a super-smooth and addictive isometric game that revels in its local co-op, split-screen glory but whilst it’s a solid and fun title, its basic premise and singular focus may not be to everyone’s tastes.

Headliner Novinews Review PS4
As the titular Headliner, it’s your job to choose which articles make it into Novinews, the national newspaper of the fictional country ‘Novistan’.

Each choice you make will have an impact not just in the wider world but will also massively affect co-workers, family and friends but can also threaten your very existence.
Presented in a format that’s reminiscent of a very, very light visual novel (this is a good thing), Headliner: Novinews presents the world as a single street to act as a microcosm of what is happening in the further reaches of the world.

For most of us, long journeys are a bit of a drag. There’s a lot of sitting around, waiting, and restlessness before we reach our exciting destination, and it can be tough to find ways to pass the time. 

The key to keeping yourself entertained is variation. That novel you’re reading might be great, but are you really gonna want to sit and read for the next six hours straight? Probably not. 

What you need are a few options. So if you’re looking for some ideas on how to pass the time whilst you’re travelling, check out the list below for some boredom-busting activities that’ll keep you entertained.

You may not have heard of Henk Neiborg but you will probably be familiar with the titles that the veteran artist has turned his hand to – Lionheart, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, Contra 4, Shakedown: Hawaii and Xeno Crisis – You’ll notice that these games are, as the ancient Persians used to say, ‘very good’ (especially Shakedown: Hawaii, which was one of my top games of last year, funny and gorgeous to boot, cheers Henk).

Not For Broadcast on the PC sees you thrown in at the deep end, you begin as a cleaner and end up as the producer for the nightly news in a dystopian 80’s timeline that sees Britain being run by a radical government that is looking to brainwash the nation with propaganda.
What the people of Britain see on their TV screens is now up to you...

My brother kindly bought Metro Exodus for me as a Christmas gift, knowing I am a big fan of the game series. Anything miserable and Eastern European gets my hands rubbing together in glee and I must, MUST get around to reading the books that the games are based on. 

Having played the game for around five hours, I was really getting stuck in, until something happened that slammed the brakes on for me and resulted in my enjoyment of the game coming to an abrupt halt.

A 2D platformer with an existentialist narrative delivered through simple gameplay, Devwill Too is only currently available for the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis in physical form.
The developer – Paulo Andres de Matos Villalva – released the first game in the Devwill series (simply titled ‘Devwill’) on Steam in 2017 and it is currently priced at only a couple of pounds (£1.69, to be exact) it could be worth for people interested in this sequel to wait for a digital release as the physical copy is currently full price and probably one for Sega enthusiasts only.

When I was about 6 years old I had a stamp collection of sorts. It consisted of an A4 book all about stamps through the ages and it had spaces in the book just in case you stumbled across a penny black and wanted to casually stick it into your book.

From memory, I had lots of 1st and second class stamps in there that I had lifted off of my mum and dad's regular post by steaming the envelopes.
