    Martial Masters continues the tradition of cool martial arts video game names getting translated to generic form. A rough translation of the original name, 形意拳, would be "Fist of Form and Will". The o...

    @stevec: most of Jeff's concerns are very valid, but at times he does seem too impatient. 2 obvious examples are: not reading the first quest completely, and complaining that water does nothing when t...

  • Francium34 posted a message on the post Stream of Thieves.

    The game is weird enough that it's not for everyone. If you are curious about it, go sign up for Game Pass and try it for a month (you might even be able to find deals, so you are paying <= $10). A...

    Like the art, the music, the ideas. If only this was half the length, or as multiple reviewers pointed out, let the player walker faster. Here's to hoping the devs patch it somehow.

    @paulunga: no shame playing on easy. I think I got through easy with buildings taking only 1 hit total. Also the pilots only level up twice, so losing and starting over isn't that big of a deal progre...
