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

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

The Last Door Chapter 2 – Memories Reflex Review: Better and Weirder Than I Remembered

If you’ll recall, I stumbled across The Last Door in what can best be described as a “happy accident” while attempting to find a game for my weekly Cheap and Dirty Gamer series. I was immediately taken aback by the impact a seemingly simple point and click adventure game had on me, and as a… Continue reading

Gunpoint Review: These Pants are Made for Jumping

I don’t remember exactly when I purchased Gunpoint but for one reason or another it sat uninstalled in my Steam queue for at least a month. After growing tired of my recent Fallout: New Vegas and Skyrim runs, I needed something different and by happenstance, stumbled across the game sitting there like a neglected child….

Spelunky Reflex Review: Loving Torture

Spelunky is a game that is far outside my level of skill, so much so that I’m quite confident I will never see it through to its conclusion. For most games, that would be  enough reason to set down your controller, take a deep breath and settle on something else from your library, something that… Continue reading

If he ever stops shooting his own troops, he may learn just how satisfying it can feel to crumble an actual castle.

Survivor Squad Video Reflex Review: Lacking the Will

When I first saw Survivor Squad, I was pretty excited about what the team from FF56 were trying to do. I’ve played a number of zombie games in the last few years, but very few of them featured squad based combat. This excited me because having a team makes an apocalyptic world that much easier… Continue reading

Gun Monkeys Game Curious Video: Aggravated Power Company Employees

Justin and Coop, deathmatch aficionados, take to the Gun Monkeys arena to see just how competitive platforming primates can be when given crazy weapons, bombs, and the insatiable desire for more power. This video is intended for a mature audience as our commentary is not kid-friendly: For more Game Curious and video content from Horrible… Continue reading

Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep DLC Review: It’s About Time

While I’ve felt pretty good about being an early adopter of the Borderlands 2 season pass, I’ve not exactly been overwhelmed by extra content that’s been made available since the game’s release. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth out of the package, the last 3 pieces of DLC played it a bit too safe for… Continue reading
