Played Mount Your Friends – Swing That D

Before I start, I just noticed that there’s an age gate to buy Mount Your Friends and while it’s justified, it’s also kind of hilarious. I remember watching a trailer for Mount Your Friends when Ethan wrote about it’s launch on the Xbox Live Indie Games store. It was ridiculous in amazing ways, but as… Continue reading

Played Dragon Age: Inquisition – I Am the One Who Decides the Decisions

Despite my good intentions, I’ve never really given Dragon Age much time. My BioWare time was monopolized by my Mass Effect addiction and the multiple awesome playthroughs that caused. For all its greatness, Mass Effect kind of broke the way I played RPGs. Paragon or Renegade, make your choice. Even if I was eventually given… Continue reading

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 1 Gamethrough Review – Con Me In

I’m not going to pretend that you can judge an episodic game by its first episode, but Tales from the Borderlands: Zer0 Sum is the most fun I’ve had with the first episode of a Telltale game. I’m not sure of how you can really judge a first episode, but my mind is racing nonetheless. I’ve… Continue reading

Played Crossy Road – Such Mascots. Very Hop.

I’ve talked quite a bit about the weekly arcade challenges I have in my office. We’ve played close to 100 classic and modern arcade games for high score supremacy. We’ve started replaying a few of our favorites, but the one game I know we won’t even attempt again is Frogger. For a variety of reasons… Continue reading

Played Kingdom Rush – Like Me!

Admit it, you have genre prejudice, too. I don’t know what it is about tower defense games, but I can never seem to get over the hump. My perfectionist playstyle makes me hate it when a single enemy gets through. Most of the time in these games a single enemy doesn’t even cause you to lose, but that… Continue reading

Played Super Pole Riders – Show Me Yours

Ever since we first discovered the browser version of Pole Riders 3 years ago, it has been hands down my favorite local multiplayer game. Better more polished games have come sense, but nothing matches the balance of sheer competitiveness with hilarious physics quite like Super Pole Riders. As evidenced here when we closed out a… Continue reading

Played Civilization: Beyond Earth – Read Your Space Instructions

I’ve had the itch to play Civ for quite a while. Right when I hit my breaking point Civilization: Beyond Earth was announced so I ended up holding out until the game actually came out. Apparently, that’s too long to wait to play Civilization because my first session did not go well. I completely forgot… Continue reading

News and… Dracula’s SNES

Looking at the photos of this ridiculous custom SNES, I couldn’t figure out how/if the console worked underneath all of that intricate Castlevania goodness. After checking out the artist’s (Vadu Amka) in progress video though, I’m just wishing I could turn my console on using a skull. That should come standard in all consoles really. Digging… Continue reading
