++Review: Fez

You can’t talk Fez without talking Phil Fish and his flash-in-the-pan tenure in the public eye. There, I mentioned him, and while I have a wide variety of opinions on the guy and some things he’s infamous for having said, this isn’t ++Good People. So, with that out of the way, let’s discuss the game, […]

RETROCITY – Skullgirls

Ah, Skullgirls. When the gaming media flipped the eff out over your announcement, I was stoic. When the tourney scene took to you like a fish to water, I was apathetic. When Steam decided to list you at $5.00 during a holiday sale… I couldn’t say “no.” Finding myself in the possession of one of […]

Retro Gaming with Max Webb – Shadow Warrior (1997)

Foreword: Ladies and gentlemen, meet Max Webb. I’ve known this guy since the day he was born and he’s presently a high school student that has joined our crew as an intern. He’s taken it upon himself to put together a few thoughts regarding the games he plays, giving us insight to young gamers who […]

++Review – Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

This is the age of the FPS. Whether you like it or not, it has become the staple genre in our humble hobby, and I can understand why. All stories require conflict, good stories require meaningful conflict, and good interactive stories require meaningful physical conflict. It’s just the way this industry has been molded. There’s […]

++Review: Starbound

It’s taken me a while to get this review out the door (about a month… sheesh), but it’s because of two very real, very valid reasons. First, I got sucked into Animal Crossing New Leaf. I never thought this would ever happen, having hated the first one so much, and also having kept away from […]

++Review – The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The holiday season has come, and the holiday season has gone; and while most of us have had to readjust back to our typical selves and into the doldrums that is our daily routines, I, for one, have changed forever. This isn’t a New Year’s resolution kind of thing, nor is it a lesson learned […]

++Review – AquaPazza: AquaPlus Dream Match

I had no idea what I was getting into with AquaPazza, I’ll admit it. What I saw was a new anime fighting game from Examu (Arcana Hearts) and ATLUS. The last time I saw a new anime fighting game from ATLUS, it was Persona 4: Arena, and I absolutely loved it (and while I’ve never […]

++Review: King Arthur’s Gold

In order to describe King Arthur’s Gold, I find myself having to resort to comparison for the simple fact that it incorporates so many concepts from other genres, it’s impossible not to. Worms, Fat Princess, Team Fortress 2, Terraria… it’s no wonder the game defies conventional categorization. It is, again, no wonder that the vast […]

++Review – Stick it to the Man!

The frequency with which I play my consoles has become more and more dependent on my reviews schedule. Recently, the XBOX has taken a backseat to all of the PS3 titles I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing. As I’ve been on the PS3 a lot more recently, it’ll come as no surprise that I have […]

++Review – Guided Fate Paradox

Rogue was one of the most important video games ever created. It popularized dungeon crawling as a video game trope, and influenced games the likes of  Hack, NetHack, Diablo, Champions of Norrath, Baldur’s Gate, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, Torchlight, D&D: Heroes/Daggerdale, and virtually every other game in the Action sub-genre we’ve come to know (and […]
