Mysterious Island - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


A hybrid of RPG and survival with impressive AI and charming characters!

Mysterious Island is an adventure RPG available free for a very limited time over at itch.io. You play as a band of colorful characters stranded on an island after their ship crashed. Exploring the island, you discover a mix of inhabitants - from friendly talking totems and helpful natives to dangerous animals and monsters led by an evil witch. Your goal is to build a raft so you can sail home, which means facing the island's dangers that stand in your way.

Down the Rabbithole - Hayven Games (WoW Exploration)


Videos exploring the hidden or hard-to-reach places in WoW are what really got me interested in the game many years ago. While watching some random videos today, I stumbled upon Hayven Games, a channel devoted to finding the really hidden stuff. Take the above video for example - a look at an alpha version of Ironforge with two tiers, an entirely different Great Forge area and tram lines running to both Stormwind and Gnomeregan.

My interest in WoW dropped right around the time Hayven's channel began, so it's no wonder I haven't noticed this awesome channel until now. I'll certainly be sinking a few hours of free time into these videos, taking in sights of things that never saw the light of day. There's just something about seeing these alternate/hidden versions of the game I find intriguing, even though I have no interest in the title itself anymore. Nostalgia obviously plays a part of it, but I think it's more about imagining what could've been.

The Ultimate Test... of RNG! Arena - RNGBS


Grimestreet Informant (and to a lesser extent, Grimestreet Protector) doing work in arena again. This deck had a 63.8 tier score (according to Hearth Arena), the lowest I've had since before Christmas. It fared much better than I could've hoped and I feel the cards mentioned above are what carried it so far.

Mega Man 2.5D - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


"Highlights" might be a bit of a misnomer - perhaps a fail compilation is more appropriate!

Mega Man 2.5D is a fan-made game lovingly crafted by a small team led by Peter Sjöstrand. I'm pressed for time, so I'll cut to the chase. This game does a wonderful job at recreating the classic series you remember from the NES. It's compatible with Xbox controllers, allows for co-op play and even has save features! Be sure to give this one a try!
