This week, on Mystery Steam Reviews, The Weekspot boys come across some parents, a war against hamsters and they get jokes about pirates. How well do you know your water-based / underwater video games? Do you know your BioShock from your Soma? Let us know how many you get right in the comments.

Mystery Steam Reviews is a video game quiz we do every Monday on our weekly video podcast, The PC Gaming Weekspot. It was originally only meant to last for around 5-10 minutes on each show, but it’s grown into a monster. A PC game quiz monster that we think you’ll enjoy, so we’ve decided to start clipping it out of each show for your viewing pleasure.
The rules are simple — it’s a video games quiz where we have to guess games from their Steam reviews — but let’s make them sound convoluted, anyway:
Colm and Matthew both bring three Steam reviews to the MSR arena (yes, arena), but they omit the name of the game attached to each review. Their opponent must correctly guess the game attached to each review. One correct answer = one point.
While both combatants (yes, combatants) have 90 seconds on each Mystery Steam Review, they also have help in the form of three lifelines. These can be used at any stage during battle (it’s serious business, alright?) and also pause the 90 second timer. Each lifeline can only be used once.
Question allows the hotseat-haver to ask a simple yes or no question, as long as the question isn’t, “is the name of the game [insert name of the game here]. When Second Opinion is used, the man in the warm chair will get to hear a second Steam review of the same game. And when Genre is activated, the genre of the game is revealed to the man with the fiery arse.
