The Joyous Destruction Of Broforce

After the slow-paced, thoughtful Star Trek: Judgment Rites, I decided I wanted to play something more action-packed. So I went all out with Broforce, by Free Lives. After all, sometimes you just need a game that’s full of explosions. Broforce is an action platformer homage to 1980s Hollywood action films, and underneath its cacophany of gunfire, airstrikes, and ballooning body count, it’s actually a very smart design.

History Lessons: Star Trek: Judgment Rites

Oh dear. When I wrote my History Lessons post about Star Trek 25th Anniversary, I intended to play its sequel Star Trek: Judgment Rites soon afterwards, with only a short break between. A few months at most. But it’s been over a year now. What happened? Oh, right: Solium Infernum happened. I suppose that justifies some delays. Now I’ve finally played through Judgment Rites, although it was too late to fit into my Star Trek watching spree which served as motivation for playing Star Trek 25th Anniversary. I’ve not only finished watching all the old shows and films, I also watched the debut season of the new show, Star Trek: Discovery (brief synopsis: I had many reservations at the beginning but by the end I was entirely on board). Since Discovery serves as a prequel to the original series, and is hinting at more direct connections to original series characters in its upcoming second season, I figured it was high time to finish my adventures with Captain Kirk and his crew.
