Oh…sir is a game that you might have guessed involves crafting the finest of british insults in order to humiliate and defeat your opponent, however it’s not quite as easy as you might believe as there is a limited pool of terms in the center for both players to grab from in order to craft a fine insult against their opponent, so some strategy is involved in deciding what to take and what to leave along with when to trigger your insult as if you fail to craft an insult you will stumble while your opponent capitalises, and the finer the insult the more points you deduct from your opponents health.

There are a few additional nuances along with having a small hand of 2 personal terms to add to your insult, which can be refreshed once per turn by drinking some tea, at the risk of losing something useable to end up with something which can cause you to lose the game, though at times you can find special ending insults with an ! on the end in order to maximise the insult inflicted.

Finally there are a few more intricacies thrown in for good measure such as pushing a point where you repeat a term every play so as to create a combo multiplier (for example constantly pushing yo momma jokes) it starts to grate on your opponent so the combo creates more score deduction the further you push a point, so it might be tactical to grab a repeated term or deny your opponent one over crafting the greatest insult just to get this combo sorted, also finding your opponents weakness and pushing this can also grant a lot of points due to vulnerabilities, for example pushing on an issue of fashion with someone finely dressed might touch a nerve and really insult them, so finding the insults which work effectively against each individual character could be the path to victory.

With online play as well as a single player storyline as well as potential twitch interaction where your viewers can score your insults to determine who crafted the best insult and rate their effectiveness there’s a lot of fun to be had within the game for it’s pricetag, and often during sales it gets reduced to a price that you surely must grab the title for because it’s simply so much fun for next to nothing. The silliness and memes and getting to create such great insults especially against friends or online is just too much fun to miss out on for such a low price.

There is also a sequel for oh… sir the Hollywood roast available at https://store.steampowered.com/app/575330/OhSir_The_Hollywood_Roast/?snr=1_1056_ajaxgetfilteredrecommendations_&curator_clanid=6860437 with added youtuber dlc and a variety of famous faces.

Frederic The resurrection of music is a rhythm based game with a similar mechanic to guitar hero games where you have to press the appropriate key on your keyboard (or the on screen keys with a mouse) at the right times to play the tunes as the notes come down the screen towards you, and as a result play the tunes of a variety of genre’s defeating many well known artists caricatures along the way through a hybrid of familiar but remixed and twisted tunes in a more classical chopin style.

The storyline alongside the game is also pretty funny told through a series of voiced artistic cartoon panels telling the story of Frederic chopin having been revived in the modern age on his journey around the world looking for his heart. Whilst the game itself is a fairly simplistic notion as a rhythm music game the music can be pretty challenging to pull of yet fun to play, and the storyline is an added bonus adding a little extra spice into the mix making it more than simply playing tunes on a keyboard to the rhythm.

The series often gets reduced pretty cheap and it’s a really fun title regardless of it’s simplicity because the premise is done well. You can also earn bonuses by pressing keys off the standard keyboard range, and often triggering meme like musical attacks on your opponents when you’re outplaying them, and always ending in a musicality as a mortal kombat pun so there is a lot of silliness and fun to be had, and considering this is always very cheap in sales it’s a lot of cheap fun to be had with both titles, and potentially any future sequels to the Frederic series where I expect the memes to take off to a humongous degree based upon the increase from the first to the second title.

Party hard 2 is a casual game from pinokl games and tiny build where your mission is to eliminate noisy party members in order to get a decent nights sleep, except things might not be entirely as they seem as there is a plot behind the gameplay as well as a tonne of different objectives to achieve, through whatever means necessary from taking out specific targets to completely wiping out all inhabitants and witnesses in order to make your way through the game.

The difficulty of the game can vary depending on what challenges you want to undertake, and whilst most levels are fairly straightforward should you choose to take the easiest objectives others especially those that require stealth or have a vary collection of partygoers together which results in the police hunting you down can present a much more challenging time which will result in a number of attempts before you’re able to successfully complete the levels.

There are two very unique boss levels included in the game each with their own particular method to be defeated which isn’t overtly publicised for you but is laid out in a method for you to discover through experimentation in order to succeed and whilst proving challenging they’re not impossible to overcome and add variety to the levels as well as a sense of completion having a final boss in particular to defeat in order to complete the game. The final boss also has aspects which fit into the plotline as well as proving a unique problem to overcome which adds to the reasons the game has been well designed and thought-out rather than simply being a collection of levels and challenges to overcome as you do feel like you’re progressing forward with some purpose and some path and meaning to the levels you work your way through.

Each level has a variety of tasks from the ones overtly shown to you through hidden secret objectives which you have to discover for yourself through experimentation or by completing certain tasks within the levels which unveil further tasks to perform within the levels, and there are four varieties of tasks which exist within the universe from the stealth and carnage paths to the mystic (secret objectives) and I forget what the other type is but attempting to fill or minimise these paths adds challenges you can choose to fulfil in your playthrough as well as playing with each of the 4 available characters to unlock all with their own playstyles and skills.

While the playstyle is easy to pickup there’s plenty of nuance in the methods you choose to achieve the tasks through the use of items and in game props you can trigger in order to achieve your goals, along with simply dancing to avoid suspicion and detection (though not everyone will like your dance moves and this can lead to further trouble than you’re intending) The mix of challenge and variety of techniques you can choose to play through the game as well as the openness to play however you wish to play all adds to the fun and enjoyment of the game as you really are free to mess around and experiment and just have a good time with it, and if all goes wrong and the police are called it’s not all over until you’re caught and you’re free to go on a rampage whilst trying to run and hide through the specifically designed escape routes until the police inevitably giveup as things become more effort than they’re worth to capture you.

I have 14 hours of gameplay across 14 levels each ranging in difficulty and challenge, note that however I only have a 50% completion and more difficult challenges as well as the newly added community created content and levels would vastly increase the playtime of the game, and as the game is very enjoyable it’s definitely a worthwhile and recommended purchase.
