GUNMETAL ARCADIA ZERO

Is this a game that has wizards in it? Yes. Can you be a wizard in this game? Yes. Final game score: 10/10 . . . Gunmetal Arcadia Zero is pretty much right my alley as far as awesome game stuff goes. It’s a retro style 2D exploration platformer. A Metroidvania if you will. Well… […]

1993 SPACE MACHINE – PEW! PEW! PEW!

I likes me a good shooter. Flying around in a little space ship blasting things is one of the most fundamental aspects of video games since pretty much forever. Spacewar! and Space Invaders being two of the earliest video games of note. All you really need are some cool graphics and some nice sound effects […]

COPOKA – MAGPIES LIKE THEIR BLING

Note: I received this as part of a Humble Monthly Bundle. In recent months they’ve added “Humble Original” games to the bundle. Which are games that are games that haven’t been released yet, and are often borderline experimental. This is one of those. I’m not sure you could actually buy it if you wanted. Visit […]

AVALANCHE 2: SUPER AVALANCHE – JUMPIN’ UP

There is a story to ‘Avalanche 2: SUPER Avalanche,’ and I assure you that it’s a super important story. It is a story about a wizard. And all stories about wizards are important. Why anyone would read a story or play a game or listen to some music that wasn’t about wizards, by wizards, and […]

Luke Sidewalker – An Ode to New York

Full Disclosure: I have no idea who this guy is. I kinda want to meet them and get really drunk though.   Sometimes you decide screw it, I’m going to pay the two bucks and see what’s in the box. I was first drawn to Luke Sidewalker by its promise of “featuring unGooglable music and a […]

Mana Spark – Freeview

FREEview:  Mana Spark FREEview is our weekly review of totally free shit.  All honey, no money! Lemme get this off my chest real quick:  I love rogue-likes.  It was the 199something Chocobo’s Dungeon 2 that cursed me to forever heed that genre’s call.  Probably more of a siren song really.  So basically I love to […]

Super Crate Box – FREEview

FREEview:  Super Crate Box FREEview is our weekly review of totally free shit.  All honey, no money! It is stupidly hard to review a game you can’t stop playing.  I boot it up and promise to only play for five more minutes.  I have a review to write after all!  Two fucking hours later, I […]

Replica – Yo Dawg …

… I heard you like plots in your plots and phones in your phones. (This joke is still completely relevant.) Full disclosure: I’ve met the developer of this title a few times, and so I’m probably now on a watchlist somewhere. I knew I should have worn sunglasses, too. I paid for my copy of […]

Illumine – Out of the Darkness

Full Disclosure: I personally know the developer of this game, but we were really drunk when we met so he may not (want to?) remember me. Also, I got this version of the game for free, but only because it was initially purchased on itch.io. Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/518650/     Okay, I’m going be honest, like brutally […]

Thumper – A Course On Emotion

Full disclosure #1: I know one of the developers of Thumper, but he doesn’t think I’m that cool. Honestly, he’ll probably think I am much less cool after writing this piece. Also, I bought the game, fair and square, even Stephanie, so no bias here. Nosiree Glob.  Full disclosure #2: I’m currently down 3 fingers […]
