Gunfire Reborn: Borderlands with Roguelite and Cute Fuzzy Critter Flavors

Honestly I’m surprised it took as long as it did for someone to try and turn the Borderlands formula into a Roguelite FPS as opposed to a full fledged RPG, but the folks at Duoyi managed to do it. And the result is a pretty darned fun experience, solo or co-op. So yeah, it’s time we take a look at it I think.

GENRE: Co-op Roguelite FPS (But you can play solo too)

Crystal Project (Demo version): Where has this been all my life?!

So this is a bit of a special one for me. My favorite Final Fantasy has always been Final Fantasy V because of its job system which offers you so many ways to build your party, using a combination of abilities from different jobs to customize each character’s playstyle. Since you can freely change jobs at any time, it means you can always experiment and try something new.

And now someone’s making a game based on that concept. Heck yes I want it. And the demo just solidified that want. More after the jump.

Genre: Super open ended JRPG

Vampire Survivors: Just one more run I swear!

When I first saw Vampire Survivors, I didn’t think much of it I admit. Then a friend gifted me a copy, and the next thing I knew, I was hooked. For a budget $3 title this game is way too addictive, and it’s still in early access! More after the jump.

Nobody Saves the World: Scratching a Very Specific Itch.

So, I gotta get something off my chest. I love RPGs with a Job System. What’s a Job System? Basically a thing where you can freely change between classes/jobs and customize your character with abilities from the jobs you’ve used, mixing and matching to create awesome new builds. Final Fantasy V and the Bravely Default series are particularly known for this. …And now this unexpected gem from the Guacamelee team can join that list.

A deeper look at Golden Souls 2: The Final Part…That I’m looking at.

To be clear, this is NOT the end of Golden Souls 2, but after this you’ll have seen all the weaponry the mod has to offer, and all of its weapons minus the hidden weapon I’m leaving you to find. And frankly I think the finale of this is something best experienced, so consider this the conclusion of my deeper look at the series, and if you want to see how it ends? Well…Go play it! So let’s have a look at the final worlds I’ll be going over: The Mountains and the Sky!

It’s a big world, but I gotta leave some of it for you to see…
