New on Steam...."A Day in the Life of Jarhead". Review by RPS to follow!

It’s called, “Tom Clancy’s Jarhead” and it’s filled with all kinds of misogyny.

 Outstanding!   ;D ;D ;D O0

And, again, RPS defeats any attempt at satire...

Being RPS, they probably get paid per use of the word misogyny. 

So give it all ya got.  <:-)

...i rather prefer that review either in Soldier of Fortune Magazine (if this still exists?), Guns & Ammo or just the Marine Corps Gazette ^-^

Well, look, here's a good article from RPS on the state of Wurm Online a couple of years ago. https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2016/10/14/wurm-online-king/

It's nostalgic, and sad, and a bit wry, and kind of breathtaking in how the game engine inadvertently simulates a medieval state which has failed from depopulation. Like touring through a fantasy-novel's land of ruins (e.g. Randland, or Westland, in Wheel of Time).

Edited to add: sorry, had to walk off there. I'm just offering it as a palette cleanser.  O:-)

I'd never buy it as I could never complete it.
Now if it was GTA style, I could get into it.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

If you're a certain kind of gamer, Wurm Unlimited/Online is absolutely brilliant.  I ran my own server for a while and it was tremendous fun.

Steam games that aren't A-list titles have lifespans approaching that of quarks.

Congratulations to this brave defender of public virtue on giving this rubbish three more seconds of air.
