++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 […]

++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 […]

Developer Dead Alien Cult Reveals Viking Ghost

I love PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. Probably more than I love the Smash Bros. franchise. Which means I found it particularly upsetting to discover that Sony had officially announced they would be discontinuing support for the game, cementing the roster as-is, and rolling out only one more balance patch, and possibly one more map pack. […]

First Styx: Master of Shadows Video Revealed

Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive have seen fit to bless us with the first video of Styx: Master of Shaodws. Taking place in the same world as Of Orcs and Men, Styx is the chronicle of the first Goblin, and his quest to do rotten, sneaky things to the humans… it’s actually a quest […]

++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 […]

Behold Studios Reveals 3 Chroma Squad TV Spots… Voiced ENTIRELY in Japanese!

In the game, you will “… manage an indie Sentai television studio, casting actors, purchasing equipment, crafting weapons and giant Mechas out of cardboard and glue to create your own Sentai […]

++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 […]
