First Impressions: Starward Rouge

A roguelite labyrinth lodged in the side of a star. Dodge gorgeous waves of bullets, claim weapons and upgrades, defeat The Warden, and rescue... Rodney? That's the description on Steam for the latest release from Arcen Games, 'Starward Rouge', and it's quite on the money in my opinion. It's a simple, easy to pick up top-down maze navigating shooter... think the maze portion of 'Legend of Zelda', except with a mech that shoots rockets. Graphics wise, it's decent, as is the sound work.... but of course the big factor is it fun, and the answer is of course yes. It's a very easy game to learn, with a game pad, you can use the right stick to navigate, the left to fire your main weapon in numerous directions, the left trigger to spring, left bumper to pick up items, right trigger to fire rockets and right bumper for the energy weapons.

This Week's Comic Book: Amazing Spider Man Annual #21

Image
Valentine's Day is in 13 days, so we're opening February with a look at one of the biggest wedding's in comic book history!



Recorded January 2, 2016

Additional Thoughts Since Recording: So of course I recorded this a month ago, and yeah, to say things said in this comic certainly 'justified' One More Day. Peter nearly calling off the wedding because he's feeling guilty about Gwen Stacy is a decent plot point, but then we continues to see and read about what Mary Jane 'gave up' to be with him and her questioning if she wants to give that up. Hell it's a good thing this event happened in the 80s, cause if came out in 2016, Mary Jane probably would've ditched Peter at the alter.
