West Of Loathing Review

The Best RPG This Side Of The Pecos

HIGH Shockingly nuanced and detailed, both in writing and game design.   

LOW My failure to figure out Stench resistance for far too long.

WTF The game’s obsession with spittoons, but in the best possible way.


Fox N Forests Review

Romp In The Woods

HIGH The boss battles at the end of each season.

LOW Unlocking the bonus stages is far from rewarding.

WTF Some enemies reappear after death, but others don’t?


Smoke And Sacrifice Review

Swunge-ing In The Deep

HIGH Finally getting to an environment that isn’t swamp or snow.

LOW The first time I fast-traveled at moderate health and got killed by enemies before the world finished loading.

WTF How does this arrangement of swamp, blazing hot coal fields, and bitterly cold snow zones even exist?

The subject of this installment: Football Manager Touch 2018, developed by Sports Interactive and published by Sega.
