Once again NIS America was nice enough to toss me a copy of their new game, GrimGrimorie Once More to check out,which of course is always appreciated. This one is a bit different from what they usually send me.
You play as a new trainee magician named Lillet Blan at Silver star Tower. The game starts out like many PS2 games, and that’s what this is. A beautiful remaster of a PS2 game many of us missed. It is a real time strategy RPG that is almost like a tower defense.
The game is simple and straight forward, you use some units to collect magic powers or mana (which ever is easier for you to think of them) which are then used to create new magical circles or buildings. (again however you want to think of them) These act as either towers to defend your base or to create new units, all of which are magical creatures with their own strengths and weaknesses. They range from elves to fairies etc.
This isn’t to say the game is simple,just that the concept is. And while the game is fun (if not a bit repetitive) and the story is intriguing, the mystery of who the ghost in roaming at night and why there is a devil teacher is pretty nice it does show its age in a few areas.
Graphically and music I have no complaints. They did a nice job bringing it up to date. The game play itself follows the same pattern and gets dull fast. Mine mana, build the same buildings, send the same creatures up and down a 2D surface to kill the enemy, repeat. Every so often they add a new enemy or unit. The game isn’t bad,it just wasn’t my kind of game.
We all know I won’t punish it for that,fans of the original GrimGrimoire will appreciate this,and it is a solid 7/10 and worth checking out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
We all know my love of these types of games, and Urban Games was awesome enough to hook me up with a review code for this one.
The idea behind this game is pretty easy, deceptively so. The map is covered in different cities and different businesses. Each city in Transport Fever 2 wants something from these industries, it might be food or construction materials or even liquid gold, I mean of course fuel. You have one job, bring all these things together in the best way possible and make millions.
The problem is, everything is easy when you say at first but actually do it,not so much. You can start basically at any time between 1850 and 2050 and the technology will match. 1850, all you got is his horses and some basic trains. Now do you use trains to get wheat from the farm to a bakery then use some trucks to ship it to a nearby city? How you do things means as much or more than what you do.
My first free play game I had a nice run going. I had 3 trains set up running crude oil to turn it into oil. Then one that ran it up to a fuel depot and turned it into actual fuel to be delivered to a nearby down. Eventually I was making money hand over first and decided I could make more money by upgrading my trains.
This is when I didn’t realize the oil cars I had would transfer to the new train and I went bankrupt. You live and you learn I guess.
That is the basics of the game, how it plays is what matters. I am happy to say it plays beautifully. As much as I love these games historically they don’t play well on consoles, which has been changing lately thankfully. Transport Fever manages to nail putting the controller in this format. I never felt like I was held back not having a mouse. If you do feel that way, good news, that’s an option here.
The game looks beautiful as well,more than once I’ve just rode one of my trains and watched the trees or occasional animals go by. In the 1850’s seeing the horses just troy along and the people jumping in and out of the carriages is simply mesmerizing. It doesn’t change with the time either, watching trucks show up to drop off merchandise or pick up a load of logs. It never seems to get old for me.
Normally at this point I would start to wrap things up, but I do want to offer some advice to anyone playing this game. First,start with the campaign. Even if you don’t finish the campaign it acts as the tutorial. It will teach you everything you need to know about getting things set up,setting up lines for your vehicles and what connects to what to make some money.
Second,don’t feel obligated to play on normal or hard. Start in easy and work your way up, even doing things right on the higher difficulties doing it at the wrong time can be just as bad.
And last but not least, money made is based on distance traveled from point A to point B, but done as the crow flies as they say. Going around mountains and such won’t help, the faster you can get from point A to point B the better.
Now those looking for a score in this one, this is probably the best simulation style game like this I have ever played. It’s a 9/10 must buy for fans of the genre. It has vehicles from the US and Asia and Europe, different animals and cities etc. Definitely check this one out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Fans of the horror genre have something new to look forward to when Jukai studios and Versus Evil release Stray Souls later this year.

I personally can’t wait to check this one out when it releases on PS 4/5 or Xbox series S/X. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

I don’t know what to say about this movie Mia Goth killed it. This movie is actually the perfect example of what would happen if you made an 80’s slasher movie except you convinced everyone in the movie actually care about the movie. Seriously everything about this movie, should not work.
The basic idea is a group of people, led by Wayne Gilroy ( Martin Henderson) all say screw it, we are making porn. Except it’s 1979 so there is no internet so they find a tech nerd named RJ (Owen Cambell) and his camera so get can make high-class smut. His girlfriend, Lorraine (Jenny Ortega) agrees to help film and be the boom operator.
Added to that we get our actual people in the porn movie, Bobby-Lynn (Brittney Snow) and the guy with the best porn name in the movie Jackson Hole (Kid Cudi) The last person character I haven’t mentioned is played by Mia Goth, because she absolutely kills it playing both the 3rd person in the movies porn, Maxine and Pearl, another lady in the movie. She does a fabulous job playing both.
Now truthfully I can’t say a ton about the story without spoiling it, but I will do what I can. See they leave their strip club that Wayne seems to own or manage so they can shoot their movie on-site. A farm Wayne rented in the middle of nowhere. The farm is legitimately beautiful. Whoever did the scouting for this movie did fantastic. The camera work is also great, they truly managed to capture the feeling of the 1970s without making it look like it is actually the 1970s.
After they get to the farm we meet this old man named Howard (Stephen Ure) that isn’t happy all these extra people are here. Howard is creepy as hell to be completely honest here and warns them to keep the noise down because his wife is right in the house.
Our porno party doesn’t listen and starts, well shooting porn. It isn’t long before the homeowners discover what is going on.
I will leave the story here because truthfully any more and I risk getting too far into the story for one and for another I would basically have to start describing either sex scenes or murder scenes, and really wouldn’t you rather watch them? I thought this movie would be some horrible B movie but instead, I was treated to one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time. I am actually excited to see both the prequel Pearl and the Sequel. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
