This week Ran Signature came to an end, and (spoiler alert) the Ransistance too will soon come to a close, this means I have to pick both a shorter game for the Sunday slot and another longer game. Generally when this happens I start looking through my steam library, trying to find recent additions or just games that have been sitting on my backlog for quite some time. I try to keep in mind game length when I do this, I reserve different lengths of games from each game slot.
Sometimes I am reminded of a game I started ages that I want to finish, or a game I remember generating a lot of discussion and I slot that in, other times I talk to people or ask for suggestions. I try to avoid First Person Shooters, not because I don’t like them, but from past experience they take too much focus from me, making it too difficult to keep up commentary. I also try to avoid games in genres I have no real interest in like sports or racing.
In the case of the next Sunday game, I have picked Emily is Away Too, I was surprised to see it pop up in the November humble bundle given I had absolutely no idea they had made a sequel to Emily is Away. I am looking forward to exploring it.
The last week’s releases were:
Saturday and Thursday: Pillars of Ranternity
Sunday: Ran Signature
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: The Ransistance: War of the Chosen
Tuesday: Heat Signature Hot Tips / Ranneko’s Tuesday Tips
Pillars of Ranternity
It is time to add a new party member to our retinue. Pallegina is a perceptive godlike with a distinctive avian appearance. She seems… unusually willing to stand aside and let people suffer if she doesn’t like them. Not really sure what I think of her so far.
In the final episode of Ran Signature I start my first personal mission way under equipped and still not quite understanding what all my equipment does. Watching this now I can see so many mistakes adding up and yet… I did surprisingly well for a first attempt?
Ransistance: War of the Chosen
This week we get a taste of the new Chosen lead Avenger defence mission. It seems the Chosen are much less interested in trying to take the ship intact. There is a GIANT gun built to crack the avenger open to take the commander back. I could have sworn I took sharpshooters, but they didn’t seem to show up…
Heat Signature Hot Tips / Ranneko’s Tuesday Tips
This weeks tip is to use the Acid Extractor liberations to give a few new characters a leg up. 100 drops of acid can go quite a long way to equipping a new character to take on pretty much any situation.
