Burgle Bros.

Burgle Bros.

An excellent implimentation of the board game. Takes care of the setup and cleanup and enforces all the rules while providing additional maps and options not available in the physical version.

The game scales well for 1-4 players, is cooperative and does a good job of simulating “Heist” movies including all the unforseen problem that crop up. Each turn is a changing puzzle to solve and strongly encourages teamwork.

as owner of the board game i thought i would try the digital version.

What can i say?well its as maddeningly difficult as the board game but that difficulty is what makes you stand and shout smack talk at the computer when finally you make it. (my wife is not so keen on this).

Its a great game on and off the PC. I would reccomend you buy everything this games developer does except of course for paperback (stupid dyslexia mumble mumble)

SteamWorld Heist


Steamworld Heist is a side-scrolling, turn-based strategy game that is set on a space sci-fi/steampunk environment with its gameplay being inspired by the combination of both the X-COM and Worms series.


As you start the game, you will be introduced to five (5) levels of difficulty that suits your preference. Those are “Casual”, “Regular”, “Experienced”, “Veteran”, and “Elite”, and as it increases in difficulty, it also yields more bonus experience the harder it is (and you can change it before you start any mission).

I played SteamWorld Dig quite a while ago mainly because, despite the fact that it looked like something I’d enjoy, people kept praising it. Unfortunately the game didn’t meet my expectations but I still found it to be a good game overall. All this to say that when I heard that there was a new game of the SteamWorld series coming out I got a little bit skeptical. When I eventually saw the game itself I knew the chances of enjoying this were far greater than the previous one. ”Inspired by classics like XCOM and Worms”, they caught my interest right there.

The most important thing I can say about Octopath Traveler is that it can restore a childhood-like imagination in you… if you let it. To get the most out of this game, you have to be willing to suspend your disbelief and fill in some blanks with your own thoughts. Don’t rush to complete it mindlessly… take your time with it, and explore at your own pace. If you let yourself be immersed into its world, both inside and outside the game (more on that later), Octopath Traveler will take you on a truly memorable journey. One that will feel like your own.

Wow, this is a hard game to review, particularly as you have to give it either a thumbs up or a thumbs down when all is said and done.

Okay, full disclosure: I played this during a mammoth replay session of the Legend of Heroes (Trails) games, in preparation for the release of the Geofront Zero translation, and Cold Steel III to hit stores. As a result, that may bias my opinion of this game, as I was used to a certain quality in storytelling, character development, and the like.

I bought Octopath Traveller hoping to be transported back to the golden era of Final Fantasy - ie Final Fantasy VI - but with the sort of QoL improvements that time has granted us.
