Live show: A night of 1,000 deaths

Roguelikes, roguelike-likes and roguelike-like-likes

[Mash Tactics airs Monday through Friday at 4p.m. Pacific on Dtoid.TV. Watch Rick 'King Foom' Olson play a variety of games, each day with its own theme. With a heavy focus on community and viewer interaction, you can be as much a part of the show as anything else.]

To say that I've been addicted to roguelikes and the sort as of late would be a bit of an understatement -- in fact, this brutal genre is all I've been in the mood to play over the past few weeks. What can I say, I've recently become addicted to permadeath and punishment. Be sure to come by Mash Tactics tonight and watch me suffer, as I run through a showcase of pain. Games being played include, Spelunky, DoomRL, Dungeons of Dredmore, Sword of the Stars: The Pit, and Rogue Legacy

Also, speaking of roguelikes, tune in this Friday as we celebrate the launch of one of my recent favorites, Legend of Dungeon. We'll be chillin out with the awesome peeps from Robot<3Kitty, while having a six-way stream where we'll be battling each other to see who can get the highest score. We'll have some copies of the game to give away as well, in case you wanted to join in on the competition and show us all up from the sidelines. Get there!

QotD: What other roguelikes would you recommend to someone just diving into the genre?
