Late To The Party: Tower of Fortune

hen you ingrain yourself in the culture of video games, giving in to the lifestyle it can manifest, then there’s one consistent rule of thumb that should be understood if anything else; video games do not stop for you, they stop for no one, and they will continue to move by the numbers with every passing day. There’s no shame in it, even the most privileged individuals who can afford the time and money for their favorite past time will find themselves cast on the sidelines when it comes to certain games; it’s honestly one of the best assets from the gaming community and how connected we all are with each other.

That’s why we ‘re introducing this new feature, Late To The Party: a feature profiling our impressions and overall thoughts on individual games that we initially missed on our radar during their launch run, and why they’re worth mentioning now. It just so happens that I have a game for this inaugural feature too; Tower of Fortune, it’s something else.

QCF: Forced

ith platforms like Steam and the new wave of online multiplayer, it's never been easier to find something fun to play with friends. Whether it be facing your comrades or helping them, the videogame industry has provided us with tons of experiences to share with our loved ones. However, there's always room for more, and with the new action/RPG Forced's emphasis on co-op, there's a new option for those looking for new multiplayer adventures.

However, can Forced really stand up to the likes of Magicka and the tons of other co-op experiences offered on Steam? Does it even work as a single player title? The answer unfortunately, may underwhelm you.

QCF:Penny-Arcade Adventures:On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness EP3

Freelance review by Johnathan Sawyer from GameFAQS

It has been four years since the release of the first episode of Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, and roughly three and a half years since episode two. Since then, the series has changed directions and almost started anew. This time around, Zeboyd Games took it upon themselves to continue the series, but rather than continuing on the same path that Hothead Games was taking, they decided to go with what they do best, as they've already proven with Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII: a classic-feeling, parodied RPG... console-style. It looks, feels, and even plays like the console RPG's we fell in love with on the SNES in the 90's, and it gives you a TON of bang for your buck. At $4.99, it's too good of a deal to pass up.

Ser Flash's Cheapskate Holidays

If you're like me, you're poor. You don't have enough cash to spread around as you'd like, and that often means, unfortunately, that games get the cut in favor of food, shelter or other essential commodities. But that doesn't mean you can't have hours of fun in front of your ten-dollar, 13" TV from the Salvation Army (or Goodwill, if you prefer.)
