Played Out of This World – There’s No Going Back

I was Nintendo-less until 1995 or so, which means I didn’t have the Super Nintendo, which means my only contact with the somewhat unusual puzzle-platformer Out of this World was over at one of my buddy’s houses (although I now know it was released on Genesis, too). There was always some strange attraction to the… Continue reading

Played Child of Light – A Beautiful Little Journey

I’ve always been a fan of fairy tales and folklore. As a child, and even still, I’ve liked the idea that there were vast secret worlds hidden around us in plain sight. Worlds containing the sìdheans (fairy hills) within Celtic mythology or the silly “fairytales are real” plot behind the TV show Grimm. You could only… Continue reading

Played Rogue Legacy – Make this Roguelike-like Co-op-like

I owe my coworkers an apology. We wanted to find a game that was easy to pick-up-and-play single player but make progress overall as a group. Usually this means loading up a retro game with save states, but before we dug around for that I thought we’d try something more recent. Rogue Legacy seemed like a… Continue reading

Played Wolfenstein: The New Order – Why Wyatt?

I’ve always been familiar with Wolfenstein, but never too involved with the series. The jarring shout of a Nazi guard can get a reaction out of me, along with the bellowing “guten tag” from those big blue suckers wielding double mini-guns. I shudder thinking about it. I was liable to write off The New Order as… Continue reading

Hey! Play! Take a Selfie in Doom

  What’s one way to update a 20+ year-old game that really captures the essence of the 2010’s? If you thought Doomguy was missing a selfie stick, then what the hell is wrong with you? Also, I’d like to thank the creators of the InstaDoom mod for making that a reality because I immediately want to go do some… Continue reading

Played Mount Your Friends – Swing That D

Before I start, I just noticed that there’s an age gate to buy Mount Your Friends and while it’s justified, it’s also kind of hilarious. I remember watching a trailer for Mount Your Friends when Ethan wrote about it’s launch on the Xbox Live Indie Games store. It was ridiculous in amazing ways, but as… Continue reading

Strife: Veteran Edition Review: Creating Some Nostalgia

Unfortunately for those buying games this year on release day, or even release quarter, they are being rewarded with strange character glitches, impossible to finish side-quests and various other bugs. There is a better way friends and I’m here to help! For the best and most reliable gaming experience, take a play from my book… Continue reading

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

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
