Knowing how to escape from a room, whether it’s a prison or a prison of your own inebriation, is a very important skill to have in your arsenal.

Just 5 More Minutes: State of Decay

State of Decay was released this past Friday through Steam Early Access, meaning that there are still some bugs and other issues being worked out.

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Of Cupcakes and Trauma, Papa’s CupCakeria

After playing Outlast most the evening yesterday, I really needed to get my mind into a much lighter and fluffier place.

Whether my nerves were still shot from the night… Continue reading

by with Comments Off on Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Zombies Should Look Both Ways Before Crossing Road of the Dead 2

So I apparently got the “nerd flu” while I was at Gamescom and am currently in the throes of a sickness that is not unlike the initial signs of zombie transformation. This had put me into a foul mood but has also forced me to imagine a world where I actually gave in to such… Continue reading
