Grow Home – Games of 2015

BUD is endearing from the second you hit the start button. The world of Grow Home is a strange but beautiful combination nature and technology. I got lost for a minute just looking around to try to figure out how everything went together. The moment I started climbing up the bean stalk though, all of… Continue reading

Game Curious Grow Home – Wanna Get High, BUD?

There’s something wonderfully symbiotic about a robot trying to reach the sky by helping plants grow. It also makes it a lot safer for us humans who are scared of heights and can’t climb well. For me personally, the falls are just as entertaining as reaching new heights. My robot, B.U.D., may not agree. Grow… Continue reading

Power Rankings: The Assassin’s Creed Series

I’ve been riding alongside the assassins since the beginning. I’ve grown accustomed to the iconic look of Altair’s signature assassin garb as the series hurdled its way toward the modern age. Whenever someone mentions templars, I can’t help but look into an invisible camera and mutter that I hate those guys. With last year’s releases of… 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

Plus corgis, kittens, bears, and a lot of other things that Epic would rather support. Top Video Game Podcast – Gaming topics worth talking about according… Continue reading

Played Trials Fusion – Not Safe

Trials Fusion came out a while ago but I only recently purchased the game on Labor Day weekend. I love the Trials series and this one looks better than ever. I’ve only played a few of the courses so far but it has already brought back the unhealthy competitive nature that you need to play… Continue reading

Flashback Review: What’s Old is… Still Kind of Old. Again.

There’s a legitimate argument to be made that rebooting a classic game franchise isn’t the valueless, naked cash grab we have with Hollywood (seriously, Sony Pictures? Spider-Man?). In addition to massive graphics improvement, controls have gotten better in both form factor and performance, sound is immeasurably improved, and you have the internet to explain to… Continue reading

E3 13: A Different Kind of Apocalypse in The Division

I don’t tend to get too excited when I see the name Tom Clancy attached to things, but The Division has sparked my interest. It’s a massively multiplayer, third person shooter with RPG elements set in a New York City ravaged by a pandemic of some sort. Not to worry, however as this is not… Continue reading

Mega Headlines: One Exclusive Not-Pinball Episode

Exclusivity be damned. Actually, we all know it is just temporary and Dust is the latest beneficiary of that fact. I’m really excited to see what Zen Studios is capable of off of the pinball table as CastleStorm is looking pretty sharp. Zeboyd has finished the latest episode of Penny Arcade and I hope there… Continue reading
