I'm definitely going to play Astral Chain at some point, and Wilmot's Warehouse looks like an adorable little puzzle game. Collection of Mana also just got a physical release so I might dive into that too.

I have Torchlight II pre-downloaded now, was mulling over it for a while but decided to go for it cause I loved the first one. Maybe some others here will get it for online co-op.

Bad Nintendo, bad Nintendo.


Never pull off a pun like that again. I don't care how good Astral Chain is, let it speak for itself.


I've already pre-registered for MKT on Android. I'm getting Astral Chain today and I got Stranger Things 3: The game (it was on sale). Playing the first 20 minutes feels like a chore to pad up the length of the game. Like I watched season 3 and how they make you look for a key that literally takes less than minute to then take you to another detour till you get to the main story bit is a bit asinine. Couldn't there be another way to pad it up main story bits, like I get the combat leading up those point but how they put you in them is really bland.


Hopefully there be more this game than what I played in the first 20 minutes.
