The holidays are taking over and some video games still are out there searching for votes.

The holiday season will soon or is already taking over at least in the United States of America and thus everything that isn’t on sale might not get much attention. I however feel free to ignore everything and anything so I’m looking through the latest games that have hopped aboard Steam Greenlight hoping to be voted through so that the can be sold on Steam itself.

And with these posts goes a bunch of useless information that I always feel necessary to put down. First is the fact that this little blog post will cover the games from November 21 to 23, 2016. Then there is the list itself it is made from my opinion and will not include all of the games looking for votes. You may ask why I do this. For one thing everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games which includes myself. I set this list up to give people a look at some of the interesting games that caught my attention and maybe you potentially vote for them. That’s it.

I have a set of rules to help me narrow down the games I include:

  • Games must look ready for Greenlight to be included.
  • Reposted games that I’ve gone over in a previous blog post will not be included.
  • Games must have an understandable English description so that I can write about them and include them.
  • All games must have a trailer to be included.

 

And now the Games:

With that we come to another sad end of queuing games. Or maybe it is happy and I never bothered to find out. Either way it is the end and I must thank you for visiting, so thank you. And just to throw this out there I apprecaite comments, questions, follows, and likes you might decide to leave. They do help me, kind of, to figure out what I’m doing right and wrong.
