Stripped down to it’s essence, Furi is a game made up of straight up boss battles - and nothing else.
If Furi were a meal, it would be a multi-course meal consisting of filet mignon - perfectly prepared with just the right amount of seasoning - and then more filet mignon.
And then another.
Every one of these boss battles are challenging in the most serious sense. You as a player better come correct, equipped with twitch reflexes, mastery of your controller, and a keen mind and memory.
For the people in the back, let me repeat that - this game is challenging; hard even.
Like a rock.
Tough as nails.
You play the role of a silent-but-deadly swordsman, led by a Afro Samurai-looking bunny (this is not an accident as Furi's characters were all designed by Takashi Okazaki, who created Afro Samurai). Your goal is to escape the highest of the high security intergalactic prisons by defeating the wardens, each with their own unique character, level, and powers.Read More

Our run up to Unique Drops Live had us reaching out to game devs to seek permission to share their games. All of them had already been released and were living in my Steam library, ready to be shared, except one.
Battle Chef Brigade is still in development, and won’t be available to the unwashed masses until some time in 2017. It took quite a bit of wit and charm (read: lots of begging) to get not only permission, but for the team at Trinket Studios to be willing to share their game demo and trust us to share the partially built game with the public. The seeds were sown at PAX earlier this year when we had a chance to speak with Tom Eastman and play the updated demo.
In case you’re not savvy, Battle Chef Brigade is part match 3, part brawler, hand drawn graphics, multiplied by the power of Iron Chef. It has all the components to ensure I was going to write about it, buy it and play it.Read More

Not having a proper Assassin’s Creed game this year to play, my heart has felt a bit empty, and yes I know there have been some “less than stellar” outings for the series the past few years (although AC:Syndicate is quite good). But not having a single player open world game this year left me longing for something in that style. After pouring many hours into Forza Horizon 3 (honestly one of the GOTY), I needed something more focused on a narrative and story than just tooling around an open world racing game. After the mostly positive things I’d seen about it, even though I had not played the two previous games, I decided to pick up Mafia 3 on the PC. I did this for a couple reasons: first, my PC is a beast and I need to continue to test its limits, and second the actual setting and storyline for the game was something new.Read More
