Mad Max – Games of 2015

One of the benefits to growing up in small towns in the midwest is that you don’t have to drive very far to get away from it all. When I was stressed out, I used to just pick a direction and a new CD and drive until the album was done (gas was a bit… Continue reading

Dying Light – Games of 2015

Not all zombies are created equal. It’s actually kind of crazy that we now live in a time where pop culture can quickly identify the differences between zombies from different franchises. Dying Light’s zombies don’t mess around. They are oppressive, hungry, strong, and way too fast. It’s actually the first time that the hopelessness of a… Continue reading

Evolve – Games of 2015

The premise worked. Four versus one. Five friends playing one vicious game of hide and seek, except this time the person hiding wants to destroy the planet. Evolve nailed it. After every battle the voice chat would be filled with stories. The team would be going on and on about the mistakes they made or the… Continue reading

Game Curious Mad Max – Literal Sand Box

I feel like I’ve been here before, but I’ve never actually been here. When something as influential as Mad Max takes decades off, its fans are going to fill in the gaps. There’s something about playing the real deal though, and Max has taken so many lessons from other great action games that he manages… Continue reading

Played Batman: Arkham Knight – Meaningless Car Metaphors

I kind of feel like a dick for how I’ve treated Arkham Knight. It has been subject to a lot of criticism from me throughout its development. That criticism comes from a positive place though. Arkham Asylum is one of my favorite games of all time, if not just my favorite superhero game. Stop and… 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 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

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
