There’s […]

++Review: Disney Infinity

Disney Infinity is an absolute disappointment. I was excited beyond measure when it was announced. Being a huge Skylanders supporter and fan, hearing that a similar franchise was emerging, but with the Disney characters, worlds, and brands, my hair stood on end with electric anticipation. What I got was, instead of a fun, wonderous romp […]

Hangin’ in the Neverhood – A Pencil Test Studios Interview, Pt. 1

ARMIKROG KICKSTARTER This is a story I’ll tell anyone who cares to listen. It’s brief, so just shut up and deal with it. E3 is a magical place. I had the pleasure of experiencing my very first go ’round this year, in fact. I expected to be floored with sights, sounds, and indecision (which happened); […]

E3 2013 – And the Winner Is:

We are. Gamers are the winners of E3. When Sony and Microsoft first revealed their next generation consoles a few months ago, I was right there with everyone else: vomiting negativity and incredulity. I was aghast at how Microsoft could make an attempt to control the used games market, and I was echoing conspiracy theories […]

++Good Games Podcast – E3 2012 Outtakes

E3 might not have had much to speak on past the opening press conferences, but we love to hear our own voices, and the record button had already been pressed!
