Horizons: Psychonauts

October 1st, 2011 by | No comments

If you’re one of the few people who have still not purchased Psychonauts, now’s a good time to right your wrongs. The Steam version of the game has received a bit of an overhaul, adding achievements and decreasing the difficulty of a particularly hard level (that I didn’t get to on my first playthrough, which reminds me I really need to play that game again). To be fair, the reason I didn’t finish it was because keyboard controls are just a bit too clunky for a platformer, so it’s nice that they also added support for an Xbox 360 controller in the update!

Horizons: Big Brain Wolf

August 6th, 2011 by | No comments

I love puzzles so after completing Puzzle Agent 2 in a few hours I found the game Big Brain Wolf on Steam and bought it to work as a fix to my endless hunger for puzzles. I’m going to be comparing it to Puzzle Agent 2 as a frame of reference. The story in Big Brain Wolf is stupid and one you probably won’t find yourself caring much about, but the puzzles are superb.

Horizons: Pirates, Vikings and Knights II

July 30th, 2011 by | No comments

If you’re looking for a game like Team Fortress 2 that’s also based on Valve’s Source engine (like Garry’s Mod), but you find that to be lacking in the pirate department, here’s something you’re sure to enjoy: Pirates, Vikings and Knights II. The game is a lot like TF2 in that you play against others online (or on a local network), but this time you’re not using guns. Well, one or two, but only if you’re playing as a pirate. As a Monkey Island fan, you’ll probably want to do so, in which case you have several other weapons at your disposal, including a homicidal homing parrot. The other two classes, Vikings and Knights, are fun to play as well, and word is that all of them are getting a few extra characters to play with soon. Best of all, it’s free to play on Steam!

Horizons: Garry’s Mod

July 10th, 2011 by | 2 comments

If you find we’ve been a bit lax with updates as of late, it’s likely because we here at the blog have discovered Garry’s Mod. It’s a sandbox game in which you can build things, but more importantly, you can shoot each other in multiplayer (or do other fun things, but mostly shoot each other). The only thing you need for it to work is a game using the Source engine, such as Team Fortress 2, another fun game that is now free on Steam. Then purchase a copy of Garry’s Mod and you’re ready to waste many hours of your life! Do you play Garry’s Mod? Any maps you want to recommend to your fellow Monkey Island fans? Perhaps you’re even working on a Monkey Island mod? Do let us know!

Horizons: The Tiny Bang Story

May 14th, 2011 by | 2 comments

What is ‘The Tiny Bang Story‘? It’s a relaxed and gentle puzzle game that can be quite frustrating at times. I stumbled on this game on Steam and tried the demo. I though it was fun and enjoyable and I wanted more so I ended up buying the full game although I felt the price was to high for this type of game. More on that later.
