The Phil Files - 01: Games from under your radar.

   0
So a friend suggested I do a c-blog featuring all the shit I play (Damn you Jinx!). So I said fuck it. I used to try to highlight all the obscure shit on our (now defunct) podcast, but that ain't coming back soon and I'm bored. In this (soon to be) ongoing series, I will give a basic rundown on the game, if I feel it's worth your money and try to throw in some screens. WARNING!: I play a lot of obscure indie shit, so if you don't like different or pixels, kick rocks. Now let's get on with this.

Game: Vector Thrust.



What it is: It's a game stupid. Seriously though, it's basically a fan made, old school Ace Combat. Cel shaded, fuck tons of planes, dynamic missions (soon), mission editor, campaign, mp, the whole shebang. That's just what it (mostly) has now (more planes, missions, etc. all are coming). The game is still in early access ($15), but is already loaded with content. Also runs great on older rigs.

Should I?: God damn yes. If you love that sort of game that is. I have already got my monies worth and look forward to getting much more out this beast. It's a blast to play, plays nice with a controller and gives me a boner.

Game: Ziggurat



What it is: Hexen with a dash of roguelite, procedural generated rooms, weird ass monsters, awesome level ups and unlocks and a good smattering of weapons. Early access again ($12), controller support, runs on low end rigs.

Should I?: Depends. How much do like these sort of things? I personally love them and have also got my money out of this one already. The dev is fantastic wit the updates (weekly), very open to suggestions and interaction in the forums, bug fixes roll almost immediately with each new build and I'd totally blow the guy.

Game: Bedlam




What it is: So you're this awesome Irish lass, stuck in a machine and somehow transported through the ages of FPS'. You start in Quake II then go to the OG CoD. Weapons carry across (and get mixed up in) games. The voice acting is great btw. Another early access (I'm a slut for projects I believe in) title, coming together very well. Not super optimized for low end rigs, but you shouldn't have much of a problem if you're poor. Decent controller support, pretty bug free and updates come along regularly . Devs seem like solid folk as well. Also this was based on some book I never heard of by some guy named Chris Brookmyre. Price tag is steep here also: $20.

Should I?: Only if this really, really interests you or you have a thing for Irish lasses (Glowbear has already clicked buy I bet. Actually I don't know if you like your own kind, but I always think of you when playing this). I personally wanted to support the devs and loved the idea, so I jumped in. Don't regret it. There is currently about 2-3 hours of content there. 2 sections (Quake II and CoD) out of a planned 8-10 I believe. Really interesting concept, they are pulling it off nicely and I would probably give the team a round of handies. 





That wraps up the first one. I'll shoot another out in the next few weeks. All over your tits (man or lady).

About PhilKenSebbenone of us since 9:50 PM on 04.21.2009

Formerly known as Miguel Martinez. He is now almost 38 and old and one of your Community Managers. Focusing on community playdates, contests, and modding. He will never be Andy Dixon. He probably hates you as well (He's lying about that). He loves the cock though. He used to run The Low(er) Tier, he podcasted (and was on PStoid, led by dudes in pants) and got into development and then fell out of it. He says he enjoys nothing (his fat ass loves tacos though), but his known interests (besides games) are: reading, hiking, playing with his kids, yelling at old(er) people, collecting various urine samples, stalking Smurfee, bad MSPaint work, thinking about working out, itching his bare butthole and seeing how long he can go without smelling his finger and Batman. He loves old school cars (Chevy), football (Packers & Niners) and of course: Vidya Gamze!

His favorite games as a wee lass were: SMB3, Gunstar Heroes, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, Doom/Quake, Excitebike, Anything from Sierra/Lucasarts and MK. Now days he barely has times for games. Keen on TBS and Roguelikes still though (Spelunky ftw!). The replayability makes his dick hard. He also is known to be playing FPS online and headshotting your ass. He's always down to game with anyone, so feel free to hit him up on whatever you see I'm on. He's been on Dtoid quite awhile now (almost 8 years) and has been involved in numerous off the radar things like contests, recaps, Community Managing and spreading his AIDS. You could find him lurking mainly in the forums, but yeah. Dtoid has forums? Nlol. Now he's a simple qpost whore. He also checks for spam and spreads his love here and there in cblogs and the fp. He loves you sick bastards. In a sexy non-sexual way.



He is also on that thar Tweetarr @MikeMcPhil. Feel free to hit him up, He is always down to chat or lend an ear to someone in need. Or he'll send you some horrific or weird memes. Your choice.
