Thoughts On: Albino Lullaby

I have said in the past that I am not too fond of horror games in general, but I think the market has become oversaturated with horror experiences that are in the first-person. Sure, games like Outlast and Alien Isolation have shown the best ways to handle these kinds of games, but it seems like … Continue reading

Thoughts On: Games from SXSW Part 2

Here is part 2! If you have not seen part 1 of this series of articles, go here! Action Henk Since Sonic the Hedgehog has been doing pretty dang terrible, even with the success of Sonic Generation, it feels like we have to look at other games that can fulfill that need for fast arcade-style … Continue reading

Thoughts On: Games from SXSW Part 1

I honestly mean this from the bottom of my heart that 2015’s SXSW’s video game scene here in Austin, Texas was the best I have ever seen. I think it was because a majority of the games that were there were the indie games, which I really dig. Sure, big budget games are still a … Continue reading

Thoughts On: Armikrog

You know what? I love talking about Kickstarters. I mean, I love talking about the ones that cover video games. My love for these Kickstarters honestly started with one lone adventure game, Armikrog.

Kickstarter Shout-out: Witchmarsh

With downloadable games like Valiant Hearts: The Great War taking place in World War I, I think it is time that game developers start using different settings within the games they are creating.

Kickstarter Shout-out: The Way

Back during the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis days, the cinematic platformer was a unique genre for the gaming masses. You had games like Flashback, Out of this World, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, and Heart of Darkness: games designed with the focus less on storytelling, and more around enveloping you in the game’s world. Sadly, because … Continue reading

Kickstarter Shout-out: SUPERHOT

Since shooters are one of the biggest selling genres in gaming these days, the gaming market is flooded with them. Unfortunately, it is getting harder to say why your shooter is different from the others. Sometimes shooters make their identity with either unique gameplay mechanics or having the focus on storytelling and enveloping you in … Continue reading
