So Styx, takes the sneaky parts of games like Assassin's Creed & Hitman and turn it into a full fledged gaming experience. If you enjoyed that aspect, of being in the shadows, not being seen, you will love this game. You play as a short little goblin, that is working his way through city of humans. Trying to get to a "world" tree type deal. You can sneak under tables, climb through roof rafters. Throw sand to put out torches, have a decoy run around to distract. My favorite is poisoning the guards food or drinks. 

Though this game is all about sneaking around, I still can't help the urge to kill every one I see. Maybe I have problems lol. But, I enjoy timing it just right for the kill then hiding the bodies away. I love to just murder everyone on the entire level. Though they give no achievements for that, unlike in hitman. 

All in all, the game is very fun. Though remember to save very very often. There are a few puzzles here and there that get frustrating, just go to your good friend google for help if you get to stuck. Game Link

So swordy appears to be a gladiator style Arena game that you can play short burst matches with friends. I love these types of games really, anything that doesn't take an hour up of my life just to play is amazing in my eyes. Seems the controls a bit awkward to get use to at first, But with a little practice you will be killing in no time at all. I do suggest, trying it with friends. and you will need controllers! So anyone else out there give this game a try? leave a comment and tell everyone what you think. 

So, was glancing around online to see what i could discover as far as playing games in the browser. Since last time I checked was maybe 4 years ago. I saw "crystal saga" and thought of a game from my childhood days. So gave it a shoot, It certainly was nothing like what I had in my mind. Its very colorful, super animated Japanese style game play. You know the games where they do lots of swirling around during attacks. Though this look right away made me want to just close the window, I gave it a 5 minute try. 

Now, 5 minutes usually will tell me if the game is worth playing or not. So whats the verdict?

- Clunky Controls... no wasd, but diable style mouse clicking to move.

- to much on the screen, a bit overwhelming for someone new

- a bit confusing

- a bit boring

I would say its a 4 out of a 10, and it only gets 4 stars cause it does look pretty decent.
