Fire Emblem: Awakening Will Bring Out the Tactician in YOU

Fire Emblem: Awakening

Fire Emblem: Awakening for the 3DS. Holy SHIT this game is good. It’s good enough to make me start this review off with a vague and generic adjective. Now, I’ve only played one other Fire Emblem game, so you veterans out there may already be scoffing at me and wondering what I could possibly tell […]

Don’t Starve, But Feel Free to Go Mad

Don't Starve

Lovecraftian survival horror? Sign me right up, please. I had been debating purchasing Don’t Starve in the Steam store for a while now, and I finally broke down and bought it. This crafting-based hardcore survival beast will not be slain very easily. As it says on the tin, there are no instructions, save for the […]

Orcs Must Die! 2, the Self-Explanatory Title

Orcs Must Die! 2

Orcs Must Die! 2 is an impure tower defense, meaning in this context that player characters can actively take part in the slaying of orcs alongside their defenses. Third person murder! It doesn’t deviate terribly from the TD forumula; spawn points lead to end points, orcs getting to end points cost Rift Points, zero Rift […]

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, ALL the Familiars

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

If you like Hayao Miyazaki movies and video games, I’m about to BLOW YOUR FREAKIN’ MIND. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is the new Studio Ghibi piece that most everyone is going to want to get. It’s a nostalgic adventure RPG with a familiar collection system reminiscent of Pokemon. The plot is […]

Faster Than Light, Right Into a Wall

Faster Than Light

Ten dollars isn’t bad for a roguelike spaceship simulator RPG. Faster Than Light is a fun game, but sadly lacks the necessary qualities to cause an addiction. “Something fun on occasion that tapers off due to lack of measurable progress,” perhaps. Piloting a crew across a warzone of a galaxy, battling rebel ships, alien lifeforms, […]

Downward Spiral Knights

Spiral Knights

Say I took a Medieval clockwork theme and slapped it onto Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, and accidentally spilled some annoying MMO elements all over the place. That’s Spiral Knights in a nutshell. A warning to MMO seekers out there: Free to play means “pay to actually enjoy” more often than not. In this case, […]

Yume Nikki, A Game of Depth

Yume Nikki

Attention all dreamers, existentialists, and abstract thinkers! I’ve found a magnificent new (quasi-new) indie game for you to indulge in. It’s called Yume Nikki, and I know it’s a 2004 release, but bear with me as I explain to you why you need to download it. Constructed on the RPG Maker 2003 engine, this delve […]

They Bleed Pixels Gotta Love Lovecraft

They Bleed Pixels

Surprise suprise, I’m playing a hardcore Meat Boy-esque combat-oriented action platformer. They Bleed Pixels is one of the games I got because I thought it looked good. Typically I try to avoid that kind of behavior, because… well, that goes without saying, but my point is that sometimes it pays off. Sometimes. Also, this is […]

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 […]

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, Misery Requires Company

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

As it turns out, I managed to find a couch buddy for Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, and thanks to that, I managed to worm my way further into the game. I’ve got some good news and bad news, most of which relates to the gameplay mechanics. The rest of the bad news is for you […]
