Evochron Mercenary, Fun in the Great Outdoors

Evochron Mercenary

By outdoors I mean IN SPACE. Less trees and wildlife, more gravity hazards. For the longest time, I’ve been looking for a free-roam spaceship-type game. The second I finished Evochron Mercenary’s thorough, well-done (slightly wordy) tutorial, I promptly activated my fulcrum jump drives and rammed myself right into an asteroid. I was quite dead. That’s […]

Proteus is Your Brain on Musical Pixels

Proteus

Video games can do many things. They can train children to be competitive little assholes, provide relaxation after a long week, fry your brain and deprive you of sleep, or give you a pleasant and surreal world to escape to when things are rough. Proteus is one of those. Which one? Do some detective work […]

Skyrim Dragonborn DLC, Now with Tentacles

Skyrim Dragonborn

Before I bequeath to you my knowledge of the Skyrim Dragonborn DLC, I present to you an image. Imagine, if you will, an obelisk surrounded by NPCs stuck in the “animation not found” Jesus Christ on an invisible cross position, their mouths moving as they speak in droning voices about how their “idle hands will […]

Skyrim Hearthfire DLC, or Skyrim Cribs

Skyrim Hearthfire

Bethesda finally says “I love you” to all the pack rats and completionists of Skyrim with Hearthfire. This content-over-quest DLC pack gives you all the space you need to store your goodies while offering you slight (keyword) customization of how your home looks. I say slight because the final product of each wing/room always looks […]

Go to Town on Towns

Towns

Towns is one of them indie games, don’t you know. Greenlit by Steam, it still has a long way to go before I’d personally consider it playable. Although tagging it with “promising” tends to insinuate that it’s likely going to be cancelled down the road due to inadequate funding, I’d say that a little work […]

Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC: A Big Game Made Better

Skyrim: Dawnguard

I’m pretty sure Skyrim was my first review, and in that review I was pretty discontent with the excess of glitches. Much to my surprise, the Dawnguard DLC expansion has thus far been free of any noteworthy bugs. I’ve crashed to desktop a few times, but the triple autosave mechanic makes that completely forgivable. So let’s get on […]

Castlevania Harmony of Despair, or at the Very Least Slight Disappointment

Castlevania Harmony of Despair

Castlevania Harmony of Despair is the cooperative Super Smash Brothers of handheld Castlevania platforming games. That specific selection of games evolved from the early GameBoy edition, the one with no aerial control, slow whip animations, and fantastically obnoxious enemy placement. As the times changed, so did the means of winning. Movement and player statistics became […]

Dishonored… Ah, Rats

Dishonored

Not another over-hyped first person game published by Bethesda… Do any of you ever feel like you have to watch out for some game companies? Do you ever see certain logos smeared across the front of video game cases and say to yourself, “Ah, crap. Not these guys,” and subsequently avoid said games like the […]

Slender: The Eight Pages – He Just Wants Some Love

Slender: The Eight Pages

Ah, Slender: The Eight Pages. Nothing makes an evening quite as enjoyable as being scared to the point of staring until your eyes dry out. Was that black thing over there Slender? Was that tree Slender? Was that oh crap right behind you staaaatic. I’m pretty sure most everyone knows about the free to download […]

Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Chao Garden

Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

As seen on last week’s review, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle is back! Only this time, we’re not looking at the Sonic part… We’re looking at the cute little Chao-Chaos! Yeah! This is the secondary aspect of gameplay that will inevitably account for the prime of all replay value. Any Sonic fan would admit that much. […]
