Okay so usually im too lazy to write about games I play nowadays, but yesterday I found a game I really enjoyed. A game that deserves the time it takes to write an article. The game was Machinarium.

Besides the fact that this game has the most annoying title to pronounce, I didn’t know much about it. I saw it on the steam store when I browsed around for some game that might entertain me for a couple of hours. I started to look at the print-screens, well fair enough the game has one of the most amazing artworks i’ve ever seen. The whole game is hand drawn to perfection.

There was no decent reviews to be found. So I took a chance and just got the game hoping that if the game sucked I could look at the pretty pictures at least. I must confess that I’m a huge fan of point and click adventure games. I even bet I could jerk off to monkey island (fuck yeah I’m hardcore). Machinarium got it all right. Artwork, humor, controls, all of them was perfect to my taste.Only complaint is that it’s so short! I need more damn it!

What is this awesome game about you might ask? Well it’s hard to pinpoint since all you get is short, crummy drawn videos that tells the story the more you progress through the game. You’re a small robot, and you are getting bullied around by some asshole robots. You need to stop them from blowing up the city with a bomb and save your girlfriend from the prison. As I said you only get videos to tell the story so the characters don’t have any names.


It took me about 5 hours to get through but I did the whole thing pretty quick. If you’re a point n’ click veteran like myself you might do better but count about 5-7 hours gametime of awesome animations and an interesting story.You can clearly see that this game is inspired by “The neverhood” wich is a good thing. Because I love that game. Also go play the neverhood now if you haven’t done that yet.

A great indie game wich you NEED to play to be cool.

Brütal Legend

There’s nothing you can really do to prepare to rock. Do you prepare to eat a delicious meal? Are you hungry? Then you’re gonna eat it
– Jack Black

Maybe you can’t prepare yourself to rock, but at least get ready for Rocktober! The month when Brutal Legend is up for release.
Brutal Legend is a upcoming action-adventure game and the mastermind designer behind it is none other than Tim Schafer. The man who brought us Psychonauts, Grim Fandago and the first two Monkey Island games.

You play as Eddie Riggs, the worlds best roadie for the worlds worst Heavy Metal band. Eddie is accidentally brought into a fantasy world after bleeding on his cursed belt buckle. Which is actually a amulet for Ormagöden, “The Fire Beast, Creamator of the Sky, and Destroyer of the Ancient World”.
The fantasy world Eddie Riggs is transported to is inspired by Heavy Metal posters and it’s in that world where the whole story takes place.


Brutal Legend will be in third-person in an open world, apparently 64km2 according to Tim Schafer. As mentioned you play as Eddie, but here comes the funny part; Eddie is voiced by Jack Black. Yes, the comedian rockstar! I personally think it’s an awesome feature to the game. Don’t you just love Tenacious D and Pick of Destiny?
Anyway, as Eddie you will have three different tools to choose from. One is a broadaxe named “The Separater”, another one is Eddies guitar “Clementine” with magical powers within the Heavy Metal world. Lastly there is a Hot Rod named “The Deuce” which Eddie builds for himself.
As you progress you will be able to upgrade these three tools and their abilities.

With that it’s up to you to fight of the evil in the Heavy Metal world and save your love and the human world from being destroyed. A awesome concept for a game and I can’t wait for it to hit the stores.
Jack Black, Heavy Metal and a crazy fantasy world filled with evil. Who wouldn’t appreciate that?
Another thing I like about this upcoming game is the graphics. It has more of a childish look to it. That shows that Brutal Legend isn’t some radical metal game for hard-rockers only. That gives the game some self distance. There will probably be a lot of humor too for that matter.

Let’s rock like there’s no tomorrow in Rocktober!
