Question: What is on your gaming wishlist?
I decided to view this questions quite literally and take a look at my wishlist on steam. Here are the 5 games that are the top of my wishlist:
- Rollers of the Realm Rollers of the Realm by Atlus is a game that combines pinball with RPG. It sounds like a fun and original game which earned a place on my wishlist as soon as I came across it on steam.
- Tropico 5 I have played Tropico 4 and really enjoyed it, so I eventually would like to try out Tropico 5 by Kalypso Media as well. I really enjoy Tropico 4 so far even though I haven’t finished the game yet, it features a variety of levels with different objectives and a fun soundtrack. It does get a bit repetitive if you play too long after each other and it can really eat your time, but once in a while I just get the urge to pick up the game again.
- Folk Tale Folk Tale by Games Foundry had my attention when I saw the logo and kept it when I read the description. It’s a fantasy city builder! I love city building games and combined with fantays elements it should make a great game! And take a look at those graphics, it looks great and has that medieval fantasy city feel. Unfortunately it’s quite pricey, but I have high hopes for the steam winter sale.
- Never Alone Never Alone by E-Line Media is also a game which cover picture caught my attention. It looks eery, wintery and fun. The grpahics give the game a very unique feel and I love the fact that you can play this game alone or with a friend (one plays the girl, the other the wolf!).
- Final Fantasy VIII I have played a few FF games, but not yet Final Fantasy VIII by Sqaure Enix and as soon as I noticed it was on steam I added it to my wishlist, where it has been ever since. I enjoyed the Final Fantasy games I played so far, so I have high hopes for this game. The graphics might not be the best, but I am sure the story and gameplay will make more the up for it.
So those are the games on the top of my gaming wishlist, the steam winter sale has probably started by now and I hope to grab a few of these games!
My recommendation this month is Minecraft. Minecraft has something for every gamer, it has adventure, the building aspect and even battles. The world is made of blocks. It certainly would make a good present for any gamer in your life, if they don’t alreayd own this game ofcourse.
I am currently playing Robocraft. It’s a fun and free multiplayer game. Basically you make a robot and you fight against other robot and try to capture their base, you win of you capture their base or destroy all robots of the enemy team. I often play it with my boyfriend and there’s aplatoon option so you can play together in games. I like the robot building part the most, it does take quite soem tiem before you get into a higher level and build a better robot. They made it fun to get to the higher levels, by making some weapons or part exclusive for higher level bots. If you like gaming I would recommend giving it a try!
So that’s it for this month’s Read Play Blog post :).
