Popping and bopping through a voting queue for steam greenlight.

It’s queue time! I get to look through and find the games that catch my interest hidden among the games of Greenlight looking for votes. Of course I should point out that this isn’t the end all be all about the those games. It’s all based on my opinion and tastes vary so there will be some omissions and games you might not agree with.

This post covers the games of July 3 to 5, 2016.

Rules:

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • Reposted games that I’ve previously gone over  in old blog posts will not be included.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • There needs to be an understandable English translation for me to write about the games.
