Space Pirates and Zombies 2 Announced with Extra Beef and Trailer

I really liked Space Pirates and Zombies, so much so that I decided I’d harass the creators for one of the first interviews I did on our site. What I found out was that not only were they incredible developers, they were extremely nice guys as well, providing us with some Steam codes for SPAZ to… Continue reading

The Wolf Among Us – Faith Review and Gamethrough: Big Bad Ass Detective Work

It has been a fun ride on the Telltale train the last few years. Full of ups, downs, and even a game of the year. I assumed Telltale had peaked. I was convinced that Telltale’s true test would be branching to a new franchise. It did not take long for Telltale to announce that the comic… Continue reading

Contre Jour Reflex Review: A Game Designed for Mobile

While I enjoy tablet and smartphone gaming, a lot of the time it feels like the games weren’t designed for touch. It feels more like the game went through the development process and and at the end they threw in the touch interface. It’s either that or they’re simple, but fun, games like Temple Run… Continue reading

Gorky 17 Retro Review: Worth Some Time Travel

I can’t exactly explain what prompted me to purchase Gorky 17 this past week. While a low price is always attractive, I didn’t really have room in my queue for a game that was first released back in 1999. It’d be one thing if I’d done it for nostalgia related reasons, but I’d never heard… Continue reading

Flashback Review: What’s Old is… Still Kind of Old. Again.

There’s a legitimate argument to be made that rebooting a classic game franchise isn’t the valueless, naked cash grab we have with Hollywood (seriously, Sony Pictures? Spider-Man?). In addition to massive graphics improvement, controls have gotten better in both form factor and performance, sound is immeasurably improved, and you have the internet to explain to… Continue reading

SteamWorld Dig Review: Pick of the Litter

There existed a time where video game stories were just simple launch-off points for the player’s personal fun and imagination. SteamWorld Dig is a Western about steam-punk robots living above a sprawling mine full of riches and mysteries. Returning to town after the possibly untimely demise of his uncle Joe (not sure if robot deaths are… Continue reading

Ys 1 Review: Pronounced with Speed

Going back to play an old game can be an exercise in patience. More often than not, the outdated gameplay mechanics coupled with crappy graphics (by today’s standards) can be off-putting. This is especially the case when it comes to old school Japanese RPG’s. Sitting through 10 minutes of scrolling dialog boxes will probably mean… Continue reading

Ticket to Ride Reflex Review: Mobile Achievement Puncher

Family trips when I was a kid meant loading up a backpack full of books, CDs, magazines, and those magnetic travel versions of board games. They came in all varieties from checkers to Sorry. You’d be bouncing around in the back seat, praying that the magnets held as you declared “king me!” With tablets, we… Continue reading

Outlast Review: Can’t Keep It Up

I was unbelievably nervous the entire day before Outlast’s release and my subsequent livestream of the game. From everything I’d heard, it was being heralded as a GOAT in the horror genre which meant it had the capacity to scare the poop directly out of an unsuspecting player’s bowels and ruin both their reputations and… Continue reading
