Game Curious Mad Max – Literal Sand Box

I feel like I’ve been here before, but I’ve never actually been here. When something as influential as Mad Max takes decades off, its fans are going to fill in the gaps. There’s something about playing the real deal though, and Max has taken so many lessons from other great action games that he manages… Continue reading

Game Curious Turbo Curses ‘N Chaos – Thank You for Ghost Ham

I suppose I was asking for a challenge so I deserved the punch in the mouth that Curses ‘N Chaos dishes out right out of the gate. It’s pretty satisfying when you get back on your feet and punch back though. Just don’t rush me again, Grim Reaper, because after I figure this out I’m… Continue reading

Game Curious Turbo Fingered – Electric Index

I don’t think police lineups are long for this politically correct world. I feel like I need a shower after electrocuting multiple innocent people.

Fingered was released on Aug… Continue reading

It got me thinking about how popular the genre must be to hit that… Continue reading

There’s something wonderfully symbiotic about a robot trying to reach the sky by helping plants grow. It also makes it a lot safer for us humans who are scared of heights and can’t climb well. For me personally, the falls are just as entertaining as reaching new heights. My robot, B.U.D., may not agree. Grow… Continue reading

Game Curious Environmental Station Alpha – Should I Be Here?

Why do all powerless space stations want to kill me? Just once I’d like to find a derelict space station that is preserving happiness for the next explorer that shows up. Maybe it’s that drive to find my happy place in the remote reaches of the universe that makes me want to risk my life on jumps… Continue reading

Played Batman: Arkham Knight – Meaningless Car Metaphors

I kind of feel like a dick for how I’ve treated Arkham Knight. It has been subject to a lot of criticism from me throughout its development. That criticism comes from a positive place though. Arkham Asylum is one of my favorite games of all time, if not just my favorite superhero game. Stop and… Continue reading
