The Hunt #2: A Sucessor to Earthbound? And OCD Guild Management.

Published: January 26, 2015 2:00 PM /



In this weeks episode of the Hunt, we've got a bunch of games that I took a look at. A couple of them came from the card game Humble Bundle that is going on for another week (at the time of the printing of this article), but the rest of them came from the innards of Steam's library.

The games this week vary from a game which you play as the vice president and order around a bunch of different people to do your bidding, which may be a surprise game for most in terms of quality. Of course, you have your obligatory steam port for a game that was made in 2008, which hasn't aged well and has no business being on the platform. And for those who love micromanaging things, a guild simulator in which you manage heroes and try to save the world. The biggest title this week is Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, which is more of the same from the franchise, but included this time is a wonderful musical section. A variety of games hit the plate this week, and in the description of the YouTube video is more information if you need it for any particular game.

Included this week is also a list of some of the upcoming games in the next week, at the suggestion of a viewer (to that viewer, thank you!). This will include games that I may not play on the Hunt typically, but more so for information. I'll try to highlight the ones that are interesting in some way, or at least drew my attention. While most of the games highlighted so far have been on the PC platform, that doesn't mean console/DS games can't be included as well (if the time is right).

So, does any game on this hunt look interesting to you? Personally, I've been addicted to Citizens of Earth, and will be playing it for weeks to come, but I'm curious if anyone is reminded of Earthbound while watching the footage. Any feedback on the segment is appreciated, as I will be evolving the segment more and more over the upcoming weeks.
