Well, it’s been a busy week here on Ladiesgamers.com! I must say it wasn’t the most exiting E3 for Nintendo fans, but still, there was enough news to tell. If you want to read up on the things that stood out to me, you’ll find the blogs here:
Still, there’s more gaming news to share on this Friday, so take your cup of Coffee, sit down and let’s enjoy our weekly gaming chat!
Human Resource Machine mobile game
I noticed a new Mobile game on iOS that looks mightily interesting, and gets high reviews. Human Resource Machine is a smart and engaging puzzler that is part math game, part programming game, part contraption builder and overall can be quite a challenge. It seems to be a unique game that doesn’t test how quick you are or how dexterous. It’s a unique game that tests your grey matter.
This is from the review on Gamezebo:
The game casts you as a lowly worker making your way up the corporate tower. Quite literally in fact, as each level is a floor you access through a dirty elevator. As the lowest of the low it’s your job to sort things from the inbox to the outbox. They roll in on conveyor belts, and you have to move them over to a conveyor belt on the other side of the room.
To do this you need to program a series of actions to take. To begin with they’re as simple as adding the inbox action and then the outbox action. You drag them from a list and add them in the order you want to perform them in a list on a clipboard. But after a while you’re adding in jumps to circle to different points of the code. Then the game starts putting different obstacles in your path. You need to add and subtract numbers, put things into the outbox in certain orders, and discard some boxes altogether.
Stardew Valley will be released on PS4, Xbox and WiiU
Developer ConcernedApe announced that they’re bringing their indie farming simulator game Stardew Valley to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U in Q4 2016! Now that’s good news, as this indie game on the PC has quite a large loyal following.
With help of Chucklefish Games and Sickhead Games, Stardew Valley will be available in time for the Christmas holidays. They also mentioned that the current, rudimentary controller support in the PC version is “far from ideal,” and it’ll need to be adjusted prior to the launch. The Wii U version will feature a second screen using the Wii U GamePad.
I’m curious: those of you who have enjoyed the PC version, will you start a new farm on the other consoles?
Gurumin a Monstrous adventure
A port of a game that was previously available on the PSP has been announced for release in Europe and America as a download only title in the eShop. I must say the game is new to me, but if you want cute and colourful, this might be a good one. The game has multiple endings and some 35+ hours of gaming fun. This is what the story is about:
Gurumin follows the adventures of Parin, a young human girl. Sent to live with her grandfather while her parents are away, Parin discovers a whole new world when she stumbles on Monster Village! Making friends with the friendly monsters who live there, Parin is also able to unearth a legendary drill – just in time to start helping her new friends defend themselves against a group of baddies known as phantoms.
Here’s the trailer:
Grand Kingdom, lite version for free on the Vita
Yesterday, on my regular check of the PS Store, I was surprised to see that Grand Kingdom is downloadable for free on the Vita. Free is good, even if it’s only a lite version for this tactical RPG. I must be honest, that game hadn’t been on my radar. I haven’t checked it out yet either, so I don’t know if I’ll like it. But I will surely give it a try.
This is the description: “You’ll be traversing the continent of Resonail as the leader of a mercenary group. Along the way, you’ll discover the complex history behind the fall of the Uldein Empire, hire new members to build up your mercenary crew, and spend time fighting under contract for each of four unique countries using an interesting team-building and tactical combat system.”
Well, I guess there’s enough gaming ahead to help us through next week, right?
Thanks for the chat, and I hope to see you again next week!
