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 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.

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

Game Curious Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – All I Need is Pipe

What a difference a year makes. I wasn’t sure I wanted more Wolfenstein last year, but now I can’t get enough. The Old Blood takes ol’ Willy Blazko back to his roots, er, cell in Castle Wolfenstein. There’s only one thing to do and we’re gonna take as many Nazi corpses with us as we… Continue reading

Arcade Challenge Report – Jungler

A bunch of snakes got stuck in a Pac-Man maze and started shooting at each other’s butts. Jungler was released by Konami in 1981. “The player controls a snake-like ship moving around a number of mazes chasing three similar computer controlled ships. Being hit by bullets reduces the length of the ships. Ships are destroyed either when… Continue reading

Played Bloodborne – Death Before Questions

Heavy narrative and slow character progression is for books, not video games. Video games are about exploring exciting and unfamiliar worlds and mashing buttons until everything explodes like a pinata filled with candy. Bloodborne is a video game. A video game filled with bloody pinatas. Video games are more than welcome to try their hands… Continue reading

Game Curious Kaiju-A-GoGo – Of Course We Have Eye Lasers

The idea of a giant monster attacking cities with reckless abandon will always get my attention because it’s simple and entertaining on its own. You give me a chance to control one of those monsters and I’m gonna jump. Kaiju-A-GoGo gives me the destruction I crave along with the monster progression to make me feel more… Continue reading

Game Curious Westerado: Double Barreled – A Fistful of Headwear

There are two things that seem to be for certain in the wild west: tales of vengeance and hats. It is with easy convincing that I stare down both barrels of Westerado: Double Barreled in search of my family’s killer. And hats. Along the way, I learn clues about the man who wronged me… like… Continue reading

Game Curious Ziggurat – Crawl Up In My Face

I’ve always wanted to run into a random dungeon with spells blazin’, but let’s face it that’s just never been a great option. Either the dungeon is too easy or your fantastical spells and weaponry are too weak. Ziggurat may have it figured out, though. It combines the polished dungeon crawler rogue-lite formula and successfully… Continue reading
