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

Game Curious Brutal Doom v20 – Giddy with Gore

The Doom mod community is ridiculous. Best encapsulated by the fact that there are now 20 versions of Brutal Doom which is the only recent mod I’ve played and therefore my favorite. The addition of death throes, dismemberments, modern weapons, and modern FPS controls make Doom feel like new again. So much fun my face… Continue reading

Just Playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Jenny O’ the Woods

Monster contracts have been my favorite quests so far in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Mainly because I just want an excuse to explore the world and discover something new. Preferably that something new is a hideous new creature or foe that I’ve never had the pleasure of fighting before. It’s time to get to… Continue reading

Game Curious Sproggiwood – Step By Step

I had a friend once. His name was Sproggi and he got me into all sorts of trouble. Staying straight-edge was near impossible when Sproggi’s antics included imprisoning me in his realm and sending me on suicide missions over and over. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the discovery of new items… Continue reading

Played Splatoon – You Are What You Ink

Leave it to Nintendo to tackle the multiplayer scene with one of the strangest takes on online shooters since the warfare between plants and zombies. Splatoon, a new joint from the Big N, pits teams of squid-kid hybrids (called inklings) against each other in skirmishes less about mindless murder and more about territorial vandalism. It’s quite… Continue reading

Game Curious Splatoon – You’ve Got Ink On You

It’s been a while since I was actually interested in a multiplayer game with random strangers from the start. Usually I’ll warm up with some friends and if I like it enough, I’ll go public. Nintendo had my best interests in mind with Splatoon because it turns out that playing a fun game with other… Continue reading

Game Curious Heavy Bullets – And Megaton Bombs

Here I am, making yet another trip to reset the security mainframe. I’ve navigated through this maze several times now with nothing but my wits and a handful of bullets of questionable weight. I’m told they’re Heavy Bullets, but they always seem to hop around as if lighter than usual… or possibly drunk. As for me, I… Continue reading
