Pine is an action adventure game from developer Twirlbound. The game has been in production for a couple of years and recently hit the Steam Greenlight community. They also have a Kickstarter going currently that looks like it will absolutely hit the goal set. One of the cool things about this game, aside from the fact that it looks amazing, is how the game recognies the way you play and fight and how the creatures and the world will adapt to YOU. I personally am pretty excited to watch how this game evolves leading up to release. Check out my gameplay of their short but sweet pre-alpha demo here:

I played through the first part of the game in this YouTube video if you’d like to check it out before you buy it.
On May 24th Blizzard released Overwatch, a multiplayer first person shooter. If you’ve known me for more than a minute you’ll know that first person shooter games aren’t my thing. I’ve never logged much time with them, and when I have tried I’ve gotten so frustrated that I flat out gave up. So far I’ve logged more than fourty hours of Overwatch and have no plan to stop playing anytime soon. With 21 different characters, there is one for pretty much every type of player…even self-proclaimed FPS haters such as myself. Check out the video footage of my first Twitch stream with this game that I cannot seem to stop playing:
So the big question many of my friends have had is what exactly is it about Overwatch that got me to check out the game. For those who don’t know, I am a HUGE fan of Blizzard games. I’ve logged more hours than I will ever admit on World of Warcraft, played through Diablo III once or twice, dabbled a bit with Heroes of the Storm, and attempted to get through the tutorial of Hearthstone. Basically if it’s something Blizzard put out, I’m going to try it because they consistently put out games that I enjoy. The release date also happened to align with summer break, and my fourteen year old son is a major FPS lover. At the very least, I hoped Overwatch would be a game we could play together and have some fun with over the summer.
What has kept me playing every single day is a little more difficult to explain. I’m not GREAT at the game, but every time I play I feel like I’m getting a better grasp on the maps, my favorite characters abilites, and in all honesty…it’s just a fun game to play with friends. I’ve logged the bulk of my playtime with Mei, a hero who uses ice walls, blizzards and frosty blasts to defeat the opposing team. You can read her full story on the Blizzard site here. While I’m sure that I could probably get better with some other characters after playing them for nearly forty hours, I like being able to hop in a game and feel confident and comfortable with one character for now. Each of the characters have their own special abilites and stories and it’s fun even just listening to their interactions that hint at what seems to be a fairly vague and ever expanding story line.
I’d love to talk more about Overwatch, but right now I’d really like to get back to playing. The obsession is strong. Have you played Overwatch? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below. If you’d like to hop in and play sometime on XboxOne make sure to follow TheMommyGamers Twitch channel at www.Twitch.Tv/TheMommyGamers for when the stream goes live.
The Mommy Gamers community got early access to check out Arkshot, a game best described as arena shooter meets party game. Getting started with Arkshot is pretty simple. You select your color, bow, mask and taunt then team up with three friends for five different modes on fourteen maps. Out of the four of us who played, we had mixed thoughts on the game. Two of us loved it, one of us was kind of impartial, and the fourth player asked me if I hated him as a person because I asked him to play such a horrible game. Personally I had fun, but could have done without certain aspects of the game. I giggled like a teenager for a second when I saw the bow named “The Boner” and realized there were penis, orgasm and fart taunts. Maybe that’s the demograpic Arkshot is trying to appeal to, but I wasn’t the only one who agreed that the potty humor could have been left out.
Check out our Twitch stream footage with our first impressions on Arkshot, and leave your thoughts in the comments below. Does Arkshot look like a game you’d like to play?
Arkshot released on May 19, 2016 and is available on the Steam shop here, currently priced at $7.99. It is also worth noting that Arkshot is purely multiplayer, so you’ll want to convince three of your friends to also pick up a copy. The Mommy Gamers were provided keys to play and share with our Twitch community.

Finding myself without a date on Valentine’s Day, I decided that playing a horror game would be better than sitting around watching chick flicks and guzzling wine. Enlisting the aid of my teenage son to assist me through this M for Mature rated game…because I am a responsible parent, we braced ourselves for what we hoped would be an enjoyable and unsettling experience. Layers of Fear rose to the challenge and left us literally screaming for more.
Layers of Fear is a psychedelic horror game that allows players to get inside the mind of an insane painter. In an effort to ensure that our community shared in the fun, I Twitch streamed my adventures through the halls of an ever-changing Victorian-era mansion. We survived, and this playlist is the result of many hours of terror, laughs and a whole lot of fun.
While I believe that the more than four hours of gameplay speaks for itself I do want to wrap this post up nicely and say that I would absolutely reccomend this game to anyone who loves horror games. There are multiple endings, 18 Steam achievements and lots of items to collect that I missed on my first run through, making the replayability factor pretty great.
