Excellent new game: Hand of Fate. Card game + action game + rpg = surprisingly good.

17 posts in this topic

Just stumbled upon this new rpg game called Hand of Fate, released just recently.

Noooo, it has nothing to do with that hilariously bad movie.

The game's a hybrid of choose your own adventure game card game + action game + rpg. Basically the story is you're playing some kind of a card game against this hooded guy. He challenges you to beat 12 bosses based on the cards that he has. And the game is pretty damn good.

Just look at the gameplay video here to see what the game is like.

It's like a mix of Shadow of Mordor's/ Batman Arkham combat mechanic combined with a tabletop card game and a choose your own adventure game. It surprisingly works and the game is a lot of fun. Check it out, I recommend it.

Hm, is it right to put this in the other PC games section? Cause it's also for PS4.

Oh yes, it's so worth it. So many different cards and scenarios to collect! 2015 has been great so far with Darkest Dungeon, Dying Light and now this. Definitely a much better start than last year.

Yep, I review a lot of games, and sometimes movies, primarily because it helps me increase my english writing skills since I will have to do english tests with lots of writing, and making reports for my job. And of course to let you know games that are worth playing, both small and big name games.

Really amazing game, novel concept, everything is right here. They came out of early access with plenty of interest from lots of different types of players. Definitely not just a card game with some action elements, but has the right mechanics to get players very attached to the whole experience for a long time. Here is the Jack of Dust and some gameplay:

I see. Like that abomination of "House of 1000 doors" that you reviewed?

Stay the fuck away from that awful piece of shit. In fact, stay away from games on Steam that has "hidden object" on them. Those games are completely boring and just makes you dumb! Ride to Hell, Rambo and Drake of the 99 Dragons are infinitely better than those games. I know cause I played them.

It's actually one of those "so bad it's enjoyable" kind of games. Destiny is worse than this game.

Hmm I see, its great to see some reviewers here. Well, have you been seeking indie games, or mainstream industry ones? Aka Triple AAA industry.

This year I'm definitely looking forward to Witcher 3, MGSV Phantom Pain and Batman Arkham Knight. Since it's going to be a while before those games are released, I'll just see what games there are on Steam. So far Hand of Fate, Dying Light and Darkest Dungeon are really fun to play. Even played this PSP game called Dangan Ronpa which is amazing. Let's see what this year has in store. Hopefully it's not worse than last year.

Watched Jesse Cox play it for 45 minutes or so. Can't say I was terribly excited, but there's no harm in checking it out.

Lets just hope that. Although I somehow am afraid that the worst is yet to come. Have you checked Eternal Crusade? That W40K MMO they want to do? Because ever since Storm of Vengeance im on a "Burn the heretic" mood. As TotalBiscuit said, Storm of Vengeance was a sin against the God-Emperor of Man himself!

I was hearing a lot of good things even when it was first in early access.

Well it's a third person shooter mmo Warhammer game, looks ok. I can't play the game though cause my internet is not good. Last mmo I played was ArcheAge and.... let's just say that it took 3 seconds for an attack to land. Storm of Vengeance is at least a big improvement over Ride to Hell. From number 1 worst game to number 10, maybe next time they will make something surprisingly good?

 

 

 

Oh3 wait2, there was a pirate based game released just recently called Raven's Cry.

 

Looks like we have a candidate for worst game already!
