Battle Brothers is a brutal game, to the degree that it took me four different attempts to review it off and on for the span of an entire year. That’s because I simply couldn’t progress far enough to properly review it. The game continually handed me my own ass, even on the lowest difficulty.
Since this cycle has been focused on the Guardians of the Galaxy. You may have expected Mantis to be the next hero, surprise it’s Venom! He is a bit of an odd choice for a couple of reasons. It’s definitely canon to the comics, but I would bet my bottom dollar that when most people think of Venom, they picture Eddie Brock’s version.
Team Fight Manager is a wholesome take on the E-sports scene that puts you in the role of coaching a team in an arena-style hero game. I say wholesome because none of the toxicity or drama that follows titles such as Overwatch or League of Legends is present in Team Fight Manager. Even the streamer chat is hilariously polite when your players stream during downtime. The game focuses more on the mechanics than the drama, and that’s probably for the best.
This is the kind of review I hate writing the most. I’d rather praise games than crap on them, especially ones that are as dear to me as Ark is. I have more hours into Ark as a whole than any other game. It’s not even close. Heck, I’ve moved on from Genesis 2, but I’m still playing on another map right now.
