Jim Sterling says it rather well in this week’s Jimquisition.

There is no Perfect Pasta Sauce. Only Perfect Pasta Sauces.

    Hey Gareth, this new Rpg that just released on steam greenlight, looks good.

    In case my link doesn’t work it’s called: Mars:War Logs.

    Cyberpunk on mars, I’m getting a witcher vibe from it. Seems interesting.

    Daniel, I’ve been keeping an eye on that one. Seems like it could be good.

    Let me know your first impressions, once you play it. 🙂

    My First Impressions: Mars:War Logs.

    If you’ve played Knights of the Old Republic, mix that with Red Faction, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of the games atmosphere.

    The combat is surprisingly good, it’s a bit like Dragon Age, but with an active evade mechanic. Pressing the evade button and then a direction/WSAD key, you roll out of the way.

    You can block manually, which I find a refreshing change. however your ranged weapon is only a action skill like thing, your main weapon is always some form of melee implement.

    The writing is nice, but I find it a tad dry. Theres definitely potential in this game.

    The factions are quite interesting.

    Theres a “cold-war” of sorts in that two city-states are fighting over the most precious resource on mars: Water.

    Abundance and Aurora.

    Aurorans name themselve with funny names like “Innocence” and “Wisdom”.

    A Jedi/Sith like Technomancers run both states.

    Starting off in a POW camp was quite cool, Had to stop a guy from being raped, by the local prison-fatso.

    All in all I think theres room for improvement, but I think it’s done well for an indie.
