Dread Rush Review

Dread Rush Review

Dread Rush is a side scrolling 2-D platformer where you play as a small blue-shirted man who is running for his life away from a random spinning blade wall of death. Now lets take a breath and start this thing. Loading the game up, the launch screen is of deceptively good quality, compared to the game that it veils. Beyond the large play button lies our characters imminent doom. Now, there is absolutely zero story to speak of here. the game [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Flappin’ Off: A Guide To All Games Flappy

Flappin’ Off: A Guide To All Games Flappy

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month… You know what If you have been living under a rock for the past month, congratulations. You were probably doing more important things with your life, instead of playing Flappy Bird. Or talking about Flappy Bird. Or hating Flappy Bird. Or ironically liking Flappy Bird. Or genuinely liking Flappy Bird because you’ve convinced yourself that anything popular must be worthy of your attention. I’m under a lot of pressure. [...]

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review

It was about thirty minutes into Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, when I realized that I wanted to write a love letter, err…”review” for this “far-fetched romp through the history of the Wild Wild West”. That last quote–pretty snappy huh? When preparing for a review, I like to keep a notepad handy, so I can write down all the witty back-of-the-box quotes and hyperboles I think up while playing. This is often more fun than actually playing the game. Here are [...]

Retro Review: Haunted House (Atari 2600)

Retro Review: Haunted House (Atari 2600)

What better game to review then the most cliché thing on Halloween: This review will probably be shorter than normal. Reviewing an Atari game doesn’t take much describing because of the simplicity and lack of in depth stories.  However I have so many fond memories of playing this game.  As a young kid I’ve played this game many times and into my adult years as well.  The game being simple and all left a lot up to my imagination, and [...]

The Wolf Among Us Episode One (Faith) Review

Telltalle games recently scored a knock out hit with their “Walking Dead” game series. Hot on the heels of the ending of Walking Dead’s first season and DLC comes “The Wolf Among Us”. This new game is a prequel to the famous comic story Fables written by Bill Willingham. With only one episode released so far, the series has come out of the gate swinging and is already one of the most excited adventure games released this year. The series [...]

Metroid Review

Metroid Review

  Seeing how it’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed anything I figured I should get right on it.  With upcoming events such as Piper and I playing a bunch of wrestling games and the Halloween podcast things will get quiet busy.  Since I’ve already done Mega Man and Kid Icarus I thought I might as well do another game that kicked off an incredible series…..     Story: The only real story we get is after the title screen, an [...]
