So there was a knock on the door the other day and a man posing as a post man handed me a battered amazon box that looked like it had been kicked down a flight of stairs and then run over.

Inside was this message addresses obscured for operational security reasons Code Milk Tray protocol

Cult Of The Lamb: Roguelike with Settlement Building and NPC management where you manage a cult as a lamb

Cult of the lamb is a very strange game with a somewhat twisted sense of humor and a very distinctive art style. Elements of games like Hades or Dead Cells with roguelike dungeon runs added to a settlement builder where you manage resources and cultists akin to something like Stardew or Oxygen Not Included with this very distinct paper cut out in 3d graphics like Don't Starve with cute music and sprites and this very dark sense of humor.

Diablo Immortals: Not a bad diablo game with a shitty end game and some of the worst greedy monetization ever seen ... DO YOU NOT HAVE PHONES!

So Diablo Immortals is smashing records left and right unfortunately they are records for worst user score with it currently in the top 5 of the worse scored games of all time on metacritic.

I wasn't expecting much from this late season April fools joke given it was NetEase and Blizzard two terrible companies their powers combined for double awful mobile game nonsense.

But what has come out is worse than most people even guessed at.

Vampire Survivors : The other game I've been playing where you die over and over but this one's 1/20 the price of the other

Vampire Survivor is a rogue-lite ... wait come back it's good ... if you like that sort of thing.

It sort of came out of nowhere and went from a little known extremely cheap game (think it's $2.50 at the moment) to being all over the blogosphere the youtubs the twitchers and tictacs

On the surface a very simple game you control a vampire survivor through a series of environments with their own set of enemies bosses and environmental pecularities and just have to survive collecting power ups by gathering the gems enemies drop.

Elden Ring

I'm not really a Dark souls person I find the gameplay mechanics somewhat frustrating the fail Die fail die fail die fail die maybe succeed die mechanic gets grating after a while and every time I've tried one of these games I've usually bounced off it fairly quickly. Even some of the dark souls like often get annoying the most recent God of War or the Jedi Fallen Order being notable examples.


Played a bit of this just to try it out.

Their interface is still as shit as it was the first time through. Incredibly difficult to work out what is what and how things work the various module controls for stuff on the drillship are not really explained and because of the design half the time they are positioned behind other stuff.
