Podcast Feed is Moving Before Games of the Year [UPDATED]

Podcasts are set to return soon, but this will be the last podcast on this feed. See below for updated subscription links. After 300 episodes and a long hiatus, it’s time to retire our old podcasts. The good news is that new episodes are on they way, starting with our Games of the Year episodes,… Continue reading

Axiom Verge – Games of 2015

Lust doesn’t cut it, but whatever the best word for that raw, dirty, and instantaneous form of love is the only one that can describe how I felt the first time I saw a screenshot of Axiom Verge. The connection I have to it is primal and impales the core of why I play games. Axiom… Continue reading

Just Cause 3 – Games of 2015

I missed out on the absurdity that was Just Cause 2 so when I saw Just Cause 3 demoed at E3 last summer, I said, “Holy shit, infinite C4?” Then I said, “I will not miss out again.” This isn’t the best game I’ve ever played. It isn’t the prettiest, it’s not the shooting-est, it’s… Continue reading

Helldivers – Games of 2015

It wasn’t unique to 2015, but 2015 deserves some credit for reminding me just how fun it is to shoot stuff while hanging out with your friends. Helldivers is the game that woke me up to the fact that I actually had a friends list on the PS4. Before its release I was isolating myself with… Continue reading

Invisible, Inc – Games of 2015

So what else is left for Klei Entertainment to master? Invisible, Inc. does for turn-based strategy games exactly what Mark of the Ninja did for me with stealth games. Seriously, you put these two games next to each other and its easy to tell that they came from the same developer, and I’m not talking… Continue reading

Game Curious Mad Max – Literal Sand Box

I feel like I’ve been here before, but I’ve never actually been here. When something as influential as Mad Max takes decades off, its fans are going to fill in the gaps. There’s something about playing the real deal though, and Max has taken so many lessons from other great action games that he manages… Continue reading

Played Pequod: So, You Made A Pixel Art Game

To my knowledge, we’ve never publicly aired our conversations about pixel art. More specifically, I don’t think we’ve ever shared the fact that most of the time, I think pixel art/NES-era game design is played out, hard to see, and generally just not something I want to play. For me to voluntarily pick up a… Continue reading

Game Curious Turbo Curses ‘N Chaos – Thank You for Ghost Ham

I suppose I was asking for a challenge so I deserved the punch in the mouth that Curses ‘N Chaos dishes out right out of the gate. It’s pretty satisfying when you get back on your feet and punch back though. Just don’t rush me again, Grim Reaper, because after I figure this out I’m… Continue reading

Game Curious Turbo Fingered – Electric Index

I don’t think police lineups are long for this politically correct world. I feel like I need a shower after electrocuting multiple innocent people. I swear it wasn’t my fault, I had bad information, or misinterpreted bad information. Or something. I don’t know, it just went horribly wrong and I’m sorry. Fingered was released on Aug… Continue reading

Super Gaming Best Friends #409 – Try Everything Once

Aaron eats cities while gathering resources on the moon. Jordan tries to find a way to hack the Batmobile. Justin plays soccer in space while observing zombie behavior. Plus Square Enix steals our game pitches and Spelunky is still ridiculous. Super Gaming Best Friends: the podcast where Horrible Night writers and friends get caught up on… Continue reading
