A side-scrolling ship-shooter with upgrades.

While pretty neat, it's unforgiving and a bit annoying.

Aliens drop by Earth and evil Humans shoot them down and mug them.

Nothing about the interface makes enough sense, and there are no hints as to how things work. It could have been made much better, even back in the day. I'm not going to forgive how bad it is, especially since there was zero effort by Steam to actually fix basic things like aspect ratio.

A classic/vanilla World of Warcraft server with additional modifications.

While it looks like it has hope, it fails because there are no quest markers on the minimap, so I don't know where to find quests. I don't want to re-live that part of things.

A heavily-modified World of Warcraft which removes the concept of classes, allowing the player to pick-and-choose abilities to create their own unique character. Another server has a random selection+choice concept which is very fun.

Has various challenge modes and the ability to rework a character back to level one for a reward.

While lacking some bits and pieces of convenience, it's really quite good. Has some expensive pay-to-win. It's ultimately not good because it has bonus experience available to all the players so there's no actual authentic world, it's just a bunch of overpowered characters smashing through everything; fail. Or play it single-player if you'd like..

Be a wizard that runs around casting spells.

Really hard to play, but because its gameplay is bad. A new game, but it looks and feels like a PlayStation 2 game. Get it if it's on sale for a laugh, otherwise don't bother with this one.

A tactics game so good it's worth buying a PlayStation 2 for. It got released on Steam so it's a game so good it's worth buying a PC for. :)

  • Properly titled Disgaea: Hour of Darkness
  • Disgaea guide
  • My notes began for the PlayStation 2 version but have been checked and updated for the Steam version.
