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 […]

The Binding of Isaac: Of Sin, Hellfire, and Meat

The Binding of Isaac

The Binding of Isaac plays like the original Legend of Zelda would if it had no surface world and contained grotesque monsters reminiscent of Super Meat Boy plus the lower circles of Hell.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, Canvas the Castle

While I may speak very positively of Requiem: Memento Mori, I must inform you here and now that free accounts generally do not […]

Dead Island Smells

Dead Island

I mean that in a metaphorical sense. The game stinks. Don’t get me wrong, it has its draws (maybe), but overall, it’ll probably leave you feeling pretty disappointed. I present to you an initial list of negative aspects: Most of not all characters are fugly. That matters to some people. Bad character/weapon to enemy difficulty […]
