    2021’s Big New Viking Game

    Image: Gearbox / Norsefell Games I wanted to like Tribes of Midgard. It has great style, with wonderful visuals that feel ripped out of an ancient painting. The combat is fun and responsive. But it also incorporates some of the worst parts of roguelikes and survival games and quickly becomes repetitive, with little payoff or […]

    Why broken RPGs and in-game jank are my favorite things in gaming

    One of my favorite games this summer is Necromunda: Hired Gun, which is a thrill ride of violence, guts, and gore in the grim darkness of the far future. The game is extremely fun, but also … kind of sloppy. It isn’t quite broken, but it doesn’t fully work, either. In a word, it’s janky […]

Its tiered alien megacity is one of the liveliest cyberpunk settings I’ve explored, always crawling with people and machines, whether you’re massacring mutants in the sewers or gazing out from a boardroom window.
