Queuing with a new voting queue of games on steam greenlight.

It’s time for another dastardly ne’re-do-well queue of games that aren’t very ne’re-do-well at all., I just wanted to use the phrase. Anyway, I have a queue of games to look through and see what catches my interest. This post will cover the games of  August 20 to 22, 2016.

It bears repeating even though I try to make sure and say this every time I post about the games looking for votes on Steam Greenlight; this post is not meant to be the end all be all representative of what you should vote for. It is made up from my opinion and gaming tastes will differ all over the place. I encourage all readers to check out Greenlight for themselves because I also don’t write about all of the games that get put up there.

I have a few rules/guidelines to help me decide what to include and what not to:

  • Games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • Games must have a trailer to be included.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve gone over in a previous blog post will not be included in this one.
  • Finally, games must have an understandable English translation for me to write about them.

 

And we arrive at the part you probably skipped to in the first place, the Games:
