Radio Waves for 02/22/13

A typical year in video games tends to be lopsided in terms of big name releases. Slow in the beginning, but everyone is swimming in AAA titles by the holidays. What happens as those big titles get completed? I’ve chosen to reach shoulder-deep into the dirtier side of gaming and  play two poorly-received games, hoping… Continue reading

Zen Studios Brings Star Wars Pinball to Pretty Much Everything Starting Feb 26th

Zen Studios broke through in a big way with us last year, even taking home a Grimmy in the process. I had written off digital pinball, but it’s is hard to argue with quality table designs in any form. Next week though, digital pinball is set to get an even wider audience to pay attention….

Radio Waves for 02/08/13

I never thought I would be considering rehab. First, let me explain that I’ve got a problem. It’s not a “real” problem like being trapped in a gauntlet of traps run by a puppet, but is a problem nonetheless. When I first started gaming, it was an affair that required a computer, a monitor and… Continue reading

In Defense of iOS Games – The Cursed Checkpoint #201

Ethan and Matthew discuss the importance of iOS titles in their gaming diet and why the supposed “time killers” have made their lives more pleasurable. The Cursed Checkpoint is a topical video game podcast focused on discussions and interviews about a single video game, genre, news headline, or industry story. It features a rotating cast of… Continue reading

Horrible Times #403: The Nice Spartans

Video games took a beating last week. Same old story exacerbated by an idiotic publisher, so it was nice to be reminded by Bungie that this is an industry full of good people. Bungie’s team went out of its way to cheer up a child who had just endured a liver transplant. The pictures are… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: 10,000,000 Makes Me Panic

I’d like to believe I’d be the type of guy that stayed calm when a high pressure situation arose. I always imagined that should a bomb need defused or a plane have to be diverted for an emergency landing, people would look towards me for help. The truth of the matter is, I’m absolutely horrible… Continue reading

The Walking Dead Review: The Dead Can Feel

A game seldom comes along which strikes a chord deeper than just being entertained. The Walking Dead by Telltale Games delivers on a one-of-a-kind experience by reaching into your personal morality and advocates a new level of interactive storytelling. Episodic games are some of the more difficult games to master, and this holds especially true when it… Continue reading

Molyneux’s Curiosity for iOS and Android Releases November 7

This has to be one of the most perplexing games I’ve heard about in recent memory. The game’s name is Curiosity. It’s going to be released on iOS and Android for free on November 7, and I still have no clue what the hell the game really is about. I’m even wondering if one could… Continue reading

Radio Waves for 10/12/12

It’s a big release week for games. Even the people under rocks know that games came out this week and people want them. There’s quite a variety as the releases range from alien-domination sims to 8-bit retro action. Also Pokemon, but maybe that’s just my thing. Until my self-started husky-drawn taco delivery wagon idea becomes… Continue reading

Hey! Buy! Pinball Duo Accessory Adds Plunger and Flipper Control to iPad

Somewhere in the last year, digital pinball has inexplicably fascinated more than a few of the Horrible Night contributors. At first, it seemed all innocent until Josh mentioned that he was actively working on an arcade controller mod to have a more authentic experience. Thankfully, those pinball fans not interested in breaking out a soldering… Continue reading

Radio Waves for 9/28/12

It’s among us, my friends. Apple has pushed its iPhone 5 into all of the sweatiest, stickiest and liquid-soapiest hands of the planet Earth just one week ago. If you’re thinking that’s why there was no Radio Waves last week as Aaron was too busy crying tears of joy over getting a new smartphone or… Continue reading
