Rogue Legacy Review  

Rogue Legacy Review

Do you have a unique family member? Maybe one who is fond of castles and smashing furniture with a sword? Rogue Legacy is not your typical retro throwback, “I want to be one of the cool kids” type of games. Yes it has a 16-bit style, yes it’s a “metroidvania” style game. Yes you smash the baddies in exchange for mana and gold coins. But there are much deeper elements beneath everything. Rogue Legacy is an amazing game. Starting Rogue [...]

Prepare to Feel Gross: The Evil Within Trailer  

Prepare to Feel Gross: The Evil Within Trailer

It seems that the current theme for game developers is horror. “Yea let’s throw as many zombies and severed limbs and bloody snake-badgers at the player as possible, that will make for a great game”. At first this model worked well, and we loved it (I say we because I obviously speak for every gamer in the world). Unfortunately if you are like me, you are over this whole zombie monster space scary attack chainsaw death murder blood fest. Don’t [...]

That Dragon, Cancer and SXSW

That Dragon, Cancer and SXSW

In March I attended the SXSW Gaming conference in Austin Texas. I had the pleasure of meeting so many, insanely talented people. I also got to meet up with a few friends (thanks Wonderfling, we are still waiting or KR-17). There were so many great games it was overwhelming. So many new things to add to our list of stuff we need to play with. There was one game that really stood out, one developer that is really doing something that [...]

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Review  

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Review

If you grew-up in the 80’s, you should remember at least one game that made you smash your controller on the ground. Mega-man made you hate your life. Ninja Gaiden was the realization that birds are the Devil’s assassins. Ninja Turtles introduced you to the dreaded seaweed. In general the Nintendo generation has been raised to appreciate violently difficult gaming. At some point the difficulty faded into the mist and the gaming culture was left with content that catered to [...]

$60 for a Level 90 in World of Warcraft

$60 for a Level 90 in World of Warcraft

Tuesday is one of those days that just kind of stinks. It’s right after Monday and you still have 3 more days until the weekend. Now if you play World of Warcraft than Tuesday is especially crap. Tuesday is the day that everything changes, nobody is ever happy. This day is called “Patch Tuesday”. Normally WoW players get to deal with class rebalancing or changes to loot tables, not this patch. This is the patch that has/will make old school [...]

Descent is on Steam

Descent is on Steam

…And screaming for my inner child to come out and play. Growing up in the early 90′s I loved Nintendo and Sega equally. I loved games like Turtles in Time, Sonic the Hedgehog, X-men, Kid Chameleon, Strider, and Earthworm Jim. Platforming was the only game genre I was aware existed. This all ended one day when my dad’s best friend came over to the house. Why Didn’t I Have A Computer Too? We were late adopters of the personal home [...]
