Rhythm Zone Review

Good and fun music game built up the same way as Guitar Hero just with a keyboard. You can change the difficulty from decent to impossible. It's always a great feature in music games that you can add your own music - in this game you even get an achievement for adding 10,000 songs(!).

One little note: This is possibly the only game ever that gives me nausea. After one song my vision is all weird, and after 4-6 songs I just have to stop.

It's just a bit sad I will never get all achievements in this game. I don't think I have 10,000 songs to add, and the hardest difficulty is just impossible for me.

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days Review

I've heard a lot of bad press about this game, and seeing that the game had already dropped to 29,99€ after just a few month didn't look good. But since the game had a 75% sale (already!) I could resist, since, afterall, the game has achievements. I won't be getting all the achievements for this game, since a lot of them are for multiplayer, and I don't want to play the multiplayer in this game. Here's the review I've written on Steam (for all my Steam review, look HERE).
Being an IO game I really wanted to like it, but I just don't. In fact, I have a hard time even comming up with something positive to say. Sure, the weird hand-held camera view is somewhat stylish, but it quickly just gets annoying. Also, who's filming and why? And why is gore and nudity censured?

The guns are weak, and doesn't really feel like they do any damage. The story, well, I never really got it - you hunt someone in the beginning, and your girlfriend gets *snip*, and you hunt the people behind? From all previews I thought it would be about a robbery, but that's only the multiplayer part (or arcade mode).

I've played 4.4 hours so far, and that's 3.5 hours of completing the whole campaign(!), and 0.9 hours playing arcade mode. I'll try to complete the co-op campaign, and then I'll just try to forget this game...

New Design

I've changed the design so it looks more like Steam's design, since I really like that. Also, the new design has allowed me to make the text arena more width.

The pre-holiday sale on Steam has started, and this year the theme is gift packs - for instance you can get 10-pack of Freedom forces for only 7,49€ (84% off on each game). I'll list each day's sale here:

            Steam Recommendations

            As a new feature on Steam it is now possible to recommend a game to your friends. Sadly, you can't see all recommendations for a game. Anyway, it is possible to see all recommendations made by a single user by looking at the Recommended tab under his games (hopefully, they'll add a link on one's profile soon).

            Anyway, I've been recommending a few games so far, though mostly games I've already discussed here. You can see them all HERE. The link has also been added to the right hand side.

            100% on Flight Control HD

            Let me try this again...

            This is a new small casual game on Steam, which didn't take long to 100%. This is my review of this game (see all my review HERE):
            After ~30 min. you've tried every level, and it already seems a bit too repetitive. If just they've added some simple story mode or some special objectives it would have been much better. If you're just going after the achievements you'll probably have 11 of 12 after those ~30 min and ~30 games, which means your still 170 games away from that last achievement...

            All in all, if you have 30 min. where you want to play a small, simple, casual game, then this is a decent pick if you can get it 50% off.
