Learn the business of running an RPG item shop and do some dungeon-delving of your own on the side! Capitalism, ho!
Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is an action RPG and business simulator hybrid. How does that work? Well, it all begins with a fairy loan-shark coming to collect on a debt! You play as Recette, who gets stuck paying off her father's loan after he went to fight a dragon. Tear (the fairy) suggests converting your home into an item shop as a way to make some money.

It's like we're back in GvG with this mech-centric arena! A friend and I express our Winter Veil wishes for a special Tavern Brawl and the Dirty Rat provides a pinch of salt!
Also, a quick stream announcement. I'm taking some time off to enjoy the holidays, so no streams until at least Thursday!

I spent a lot of time and effort working on this video, and I'm pretty proud to have gotten it out in time for Christmas! This isn't just a series finale, but also a special tribute to our late friend, James "AngerPuppet42" Boley. We'll love and miss you always, James!

Also, no stream Saturday or Sunday. I'm making candy, then eating it! :~P Have a great Christmas weekend, everyone!

Experience action, stealth and intrigue in the New World!
There's probably nothing I can say about Assassin's Creed that hasn't already been said. The franchise is so huge that a film is about to release in theaters as I write this. What I can do is express my first impressions of the title from the standpoint of someone new to the series, but not to gaming.

Two weeks in to Riders of Icarus, and I'm still disappointed. Aerial combat could've been so much better.
I still don't get how a game focused on taming beasts dropped the ball so hard on the pet system. Pets are essentially walking totems, as using them to do anything besides stand around providing buffs drains way too much energy. Also, how is there not a pet class or beastmaster-type spec in this game? If any title should have it, you'd think this would be it.

Over the top action, extreme explosions and uber manliness!
The Expendabros is a run-n-gun action shooter similar to Metal Slug or Contra. You're part of an elite combat team that's been captured, so you need to rescue your bros as well as take out enemy installations.

I got to try out Grimestreet Enforcer in arena this week and I'm pretty impressed by the results. I got fairly lucky, but it feels stronger than similar cards (Jeweled Scarab, Dark Peddler, even Babbling Book) due to the high RNG swing. It seems like chances are good you'll see at least one card that helps your current position, with the possibility of just getting something nuts.

My first week in Riders of Icarus has been somewhat mediocre. I feel I spent a lot of time complaining this episode, but the points are valid. I can't say Riders is a bad game right now, but it's been a bit disappointing so far.

Lie, cheat and steal to appease the voice in your head!
The Knobbly Crook is a point-and-click adventure game with a healthy dose of quirky humor, much in the vein of the Monkey Island series. You play as O'Sirus the Snip in a flashback as he recounts a tale that ultimately landed him in trouble.

Sergeant Sally calls in reinforcements to clean up the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan! Special guest appearances by Bolvar, N'zoth, Antonidas and a damn lucky Murloc Knight!

The December game for MMOMG is Riders of Icarus, an MMORPG about taming dragons! The stream begins tonight at 8pm ET on my Twitch channel - you can also join me in-game on the Hakain server (NA). Hope to see you there!
My final week in Project Gorgon (for now), I address some pros, cons and planned updates. I very much enjoyed my month here, and look forward to revisiting the game at some point in the future!
