So, Dark Souls, right? Everyone knows about it, it’s a hard series of games, and my opinions on it are too lengthy and unpopular to include in this article. My feelings on Dark Souls deserve their own thesis, but all I’ll say is that they are hard, and leave it entirely in the player’s hands to figure out what is so hard. I don’t necessarily think that Dark Souls should be what gamers imagine when the word “difficult” comes to mind, and I don’t really think that every hard game ever made is instantly a Dark Souls clone, but as I said, another article for another day.

Let me tell you a story, one that you are almost definitely familiar with in some fashion. It comes from 16th century China, and goes by the name of Journey to the West. The story tells the fictitiously augmented story of Xuanzang and his three companions with troubled pasts as they make their way across western China atop a white dragon to obtain sacred texts and return them home. These three companions may begin to ring a bell to you. (more…)
Rocket League is just over a month old after being released July 7th, 2015 for PC and PS4 and it has already made a huge name for itself. The game is growing so fast that a new map has already been released and caused a commotion about competitive play. Yes, that’s right it already has it’s own competitive scene set up, along with Psyonix, the game’s publisher, having a world championship in the works. There is even a dedicated Rocket League Twitch channel and this is just the start.
If you’ve ever had any degree of love for the television/pop-culture phenomenon that is South Park, you’d be hard pressed not to be enraptured by the newly released South Park: The Stick of Truth (more…)
Do you consider yourself a Gamer Nerd? Are you the type of gamer who chooses questing, leveling, headshotting, or resource mining over sleep? Well, we’ve got the place for you! (more…)
I’ve been dipping my fingers into a few “indie” titles recently. It is a term that we aren’t quite sure about. Sometimes an indie is a game actually developed by an independent studio or individual and sometimes the name is slapped on to just mean a shorter title produced by a big company.

As I was finishing my DuckTales Remastered review, I was surprised to see yet another old Disney game remake ready to be downloaded and waiting for my money budgeted for nostalgia. Castle of Illusion:Starring Mickey Mouse is a Sega game from back in the Genesis days that is largely well-remembered; it soon became a series, with Donald backing Mickey up in a few titles to make people who prefer the eternally-miffed foul (like me!). The original game is so loved that a 3DS spin-off, Power of Illusion, came out in 2012 to less-than-stellar reviews. (more…)
There is something about an empty house at night, regardless of how skeptical one is of the paranormal, that is eerie. There is something else about a house and the odds and ends that people keep in their junk drawers, atop their nightstands, and underneath their mattresses. (more…)
It feels like the time since DuckTales was originally available for the NES has gone by like a duck blur. Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself. So different from today, Disney games were some of the best games for the NES. (more…)
Sonic has not aged gracefully—an understatement at best. At first he was a pudgy, speeding hedgehog whose exploits on green hills, death eggs, and in trippy bonus stages made Sega a mainstay (more…)
The uncertain period—limbo, that time spent awaiting a resolution, a direction. For some it’s a spiritual status between heaven, hell, and the favor of God. For others it’s a state of being, or more accurately a state not being. (more…)
Its hard to believe the zombie genre has come this far since the days of George Romero. In Plants vs. Zombies HD, flesh hungry ghouls have turned into socially conscious vegetarians, and your house is the salad bar.
