So, things have been busy. And I don't mean slightly busy - but more akin to: I'm exhausted and sleeping by 10:30 most nights, usually after putting in an 11+ hour day of work, which this week included moving, and several rather stressful proposals as we make some big changes in my department going forward. But - you're not here to read about work, but probably video games, right? Well, that's upcoming in large quantities hopefully as well.
It has been stupidly busy at work and home lately, so I apologize for the less-frequent posting of late (though appreciate all of the hits I still seem to be getting despite my slacker-ness. I'm pretty sure that's a word). Anyway, we are moving offices today at work, but I had a quick review written up I thought I would get posted this morning first. So - here it is:
When Frozen Synapse first came out, I really did not pay much attention to it. The visuals were really bad, and it was something that had almost no pre-release buzz. Then I picked it up cheap as part of a bundle and finally decided to see what all of the fuss was about.
I went into this title blind. I will admit that I saw the blocky, basic visuals and thought it might be a puzzle game of some sort - wow was I off-track on that one. What you have is a turn-based strategy game that actually feels fresh. Now, I cannot give the graphics a pass - they are pretty rough in my opinion. The map and characters would feel right at home on a PC from two decades ago, though there are some decently rendered sequences between missions that show peoples' faces and locales.
