Rust - It Begins With A Rock

Posted by Syntax Error, 18 March 2014 - - - - - - · 552 views

A couple weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win a contest a friend was holding and get a couple games. One that I chose was Rust. It was one of those titles that sounded intriguing but I knew I'd never buy for myself so this seemed like a great chance to try it out. I've put about 90 hours into it and decided to take a break. Here's my thoughts on it.


Backlog Alphabet: There IS a letter Z!

A friend was upset enough about my ending on the letter "Y" than he bought me...

Z is for Zombie Driver HD : Zombie Driver HD put you in the action in a city ravaged by zombies. Starting with your trusty taxi, you must race through the streets and over the undead as you rescue citizens, kill giant zombie bosses and whatever else the military has you do...

Backlog Alphabet: U-Y/Z

Posted by Syntax Error, 27 January 2014 - - - - - - · 505 views

The final installment of the Backlog Alphabet. Can you believe it? Probably, since the alphabet ends with "Z" so there wasn't much of a shock there.

U is for Unstoppable Gorg : Unstoppable Gorg is a "tower defense" game. You have your base you're defending, you set up your turrets of whatever type and watch them shoot the stream of bad guys trying to ge...

Backlog Alphabet P-T

We're down to the last two entries! Let's get this show on the road.

P is for The Political Machine (2012) : Sure, it's 2014 now but this entry into my backlog wasn't going to get any fresher. The Political Machine is a fairly simple game that has you running your bobble-headed candidate for president. Pick from an array of candidates spanning current/r...

Backlog Alphabet: L-O

Each time I start to draft one of these, I have to count out the letters on my fingers. My college education hard at work.

L is for Legend of Grimrock : I was raised up on the dungeon crawler: Bard's Tale, Might & Magic, Pool of Radiance (& the other Gold Box games) and assorted other lesser titles. But I can't say I had been dying to go back to...

Backlog Alphabet H-K

If you haven't read the two previous entries, you're seriously doing this wrong.

H is for Hotline Miami : Hotline Miami is a pretty well lauded game so I figured this one would be something of a bye. I mean, it's legitimately backlogged and I had no immediate intent on playing it otherwise but I figured I was at least safe from a terrible experience. An...

Backlog Alphabet: D-G

I assume if you're reading this, you read the previous entry . So let's jump right in.

D is for Don't Starve : You're not the boss of me, game. I starved. I starved good. I didn't even know what this game was when I first started hearing of it. I assumed it was probably another platformer or puzzle game or something. Instead, my ass got dumped in the wi...

Backlog Alphabet: A - C

Posted by Syntax Error, 10 January 2014 - - - - - - · 678 views

Backlogs: We all have 'em and we all have varying levels of guilt about them. I decided try something new in digging into mine: Every night I would spend at least one hour with a new game, going alphabetically through my catalog. I have no strict rules about what game I'll pick beyond it being new although my inclination is to lean towards games that were...
