Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Heavy Bullets and The Secret World are both cheap on Steam, two games I've always wanted to check out (played TSW in beta and I liked it a little bit).

        TSW was fun. They had some fun new approaches to questing that made the game much more enjoyable to me.

        At some point they updated combat too because it was apparently awful before.

      What's a great turn based rogue like in the list? I like random stuff and loot.

          So is Hack & Slash

          I picked up Hero Siege and Delver.
          Both are pretty decent. Delver is kinda short though.
