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

Played Halo: The Master Chief Collection – Finish the Fight Forever

If you have an Xbox One console and you didn’t pick up Halo: The Master Chief Collection, you’re wrong. To be clear: it’s Halo CE through Halo 4, with CE & 2 made extra pretty. Oh, and all of the multiplayer maps. For $62. In a haphazard approach necessitated because of an insane 4th Quarter at… Continue reading

Backlog Commando Kenny Played The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

I try not to gush too much, but if you listened to the podcast, I gushed all over A Link Between Worlds. I love Zelda, but the last few outings haven’t really done it for me. Skyward Sword was slow, plodding, and held back by motion controls; Twilight Princess was… well, just totally expected. Listen to… 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

Backlog Commando Cole Played The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The saying “familiarity breeds contempt” often holds true when sequels don’t expand much on the predecessor, but that couldn’t be further from the truth with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. After enough time, familiarity can turns into nostalgia and little callbacks to the original game lead to knowing smiles. A Link Between Worlds… Continue reading

Played Game of Thrones Episode One – This Will End Well

I’m a late fan of the Telltale game series. It wasn’t until after the first season of The Walking Dead was complete that I discovered its awesomeness. I completely missed the announcement that they were working on Game of Thrones, but after seeing the first trailer (below) I couldn’t have been more excited. As soon… 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

Nimble Quest Review: Get in Line, Hero

Nimble Quest has been my goto few-minutes-to-kill mobile game for over a year now. A game developed by NimbleBit, creators of Tiny Towers and the short lived Star Wars: Tiny Death Star. It’s a snake type game where you move an ever growing train of heroes with the flick of a finger. You can move… Continue reading
