    New hot releases!

    Well, today is a great day! Two quite impressive games got released today, both of them are made by very experienced developers teams and totally should get your attention!

    So let's roll with the first one:

    FROSTPUNK

     

    Firstly, let me mention how the developers describe their creation:

    FP_header_logo.jpg?t=1524581501

    "Frostpunk is a brand-new title from the creators of This War of Mine. It’s a society survival game that asks what people are capable of when pushed to the brink of extinction. In an entirely frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. The city’s ruler has to manage both the citizens and the infrastructure they live in. The leader’s tactical skills face challenges that will frequently question the morality and the basic foundations of what we consider organized society. Optimization and resource management often clash with empathy and thoughtful decision-making. While city and society management will consume most of the ruler’s time, at some point exploration of the outside world is necessary to understand its history and present state."

    If you were a fan of the tycoon-survival games, like Rimworld or This War of Mine, this "Siberia simulator" should definitely pull some of your strings.

    Next one is the well-known universe, which probably older than the majority of the community =)

    BATTLETECH

    From original BATTLETECH/MechWarrior creator Jordan Weisman and the developers of the award-winning Shadowrun Returns series comes the next-generation of turn-based tactical 'Mech combat. 

    The year is 3025 and the galaxy is trapped in a cycle of perpetual war, fought by noble houses with enormous, mechanized combat vehicles called BattleMechs. Take command of your own mercenary outfit of 'Mechs and the MechWarriors that pilot them, struggling to stay afloat as you find yourself drawn into a brutal interstellar civil war. Upgrade your starfaring base of operations, negotiate mercenary contracts with feudal lords, repair and maintain your stable of aging BattleMechs, and execute devastating combat tactics to defeat your enemies on the battlefield.

    So, this is a great turn-based game by the people, who are really know how to make a good turn-based action-RPG, especially with the story, written by the same guy who had written a lot of original Battletech novellas.

    Lol, get rekt. I've actually backed Battletech on Kickstarter over a 1,5 year ago, as soon as it started. And I was super hyped about Frostpunk since the announcement.

    I've been playing FrostPunk a bit and I'm really enjoying it, the developer's interpretation for how society would change in this kind of environment is interesting though it is a bit hit and miss at times for me. The game has three scenarios at the moment for dealing with over-population, temperature and under-population each one you need to adapt correctly to survive. I did think it needed a tutorial but there are in-game guides to help you get started. I will say the UI is great and really gives you everything you need. Also, I think they should add a sandbox mode in the future but perhaps since they're adding mod support perhaps someone else will at some point. 8/10

    Frostpunk: Well currently me and my brother are hooked and are attempting to 100% it. What the game does good it does amazing. Only real flaw with it is that between the choices of religion or authoritarian always go authoritarian. Religion buffs are small compared to the other option and until they are balanced you are hurting yourself by going religious as there are no achievements for it (from what we know, still 4 unknown achievements left). 9/10

    Battletech: Literally XCOM with giant mechs. Mechs bring in extra strategy such as angling and when melee builds are good so I really like it. That being said for the main story missions I wish you have the option of backing out of them when you first lock in your mechs since I am currently faced with the option of restarting or losing 4 of my best mechs and pilots since I thought the hint of bring missles was mandatory. As such I have no tanky mechs and the enemy just rush me every chance they get. 8.5/10
