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

Game Curious Titan Souls – Trial by Titans

The feeling of defeating a monolithic adversary is exhilarating. Shadow of the Colossus totally ran with this concept back in 2005 and the more recent Souls games by From Software have given unique worlds overflowing with trials and tribulations a strong resurgence. Ever the glutton for a challenge, I jumped into this month’s release of Titan Souls for… 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

Livestream Event – Evolve HoNight Game Night 2/12 930pm EST – Monster Don’t Care

Alright. This has gone on long enough. HoNight Game Night wants to come out to play and with it Horrible Night starts livestreaming on a weekly basis again. Before we get there though, let’s start with this week. Coop and I will be live this Thursday (2/12) at 930pm EDT on Twitch.tv/HorribleNight. We will be playing… 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

Played Game of Thrones Episode One – This Will End Well

I’m a late fan of the Telltale game series. It wasn’t until after the first season of The Walking Dead was complete that I discovered its awesomeness. I completely missed the announcement that they were working on Game of Thrones, but after seeing the first trailer (below) I couldn’t have been more excited. As soon… Continue reading

Played Super Pole Riders – Show Me Yours

Ever since we first discovered the browser version of Pole Riders 3 years ago, it has been hands down my favorite local multiplayer game. Better more polished games have come sense, but nothing matches the balance of sheer competitiveness with hilarious physics quite like Super Pole Riders. As evidenced here when we closed out a… Continue reading
