Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Finale Review: Twilight of the Apprentice

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Finale Review: Twilight of the Apprentice

As March came to a close, so too did the second season of Disney’s Star Wars: Rebels. Much like The Clone Wars, the second season of Rebels has been far superior to the show’s premier season. Between the exciting adventures, the character development (I can’t wait to see how Agent Kallus evolves in season 3) and some really jaw-dropping lore-related moments (I still get goosebumps thinking about the music that played when the crew made their way to Lasan, as well […]

The Flame in the Flood Review: Bayou Beware

The Flame in the Flood Review: Bayou Beware

The Flame in the Flood is a crafting-based survival game developed by The Molasses Flood that released in February. You can watch me experience the game through my 12-episode Let’s Play The Flame in the Flood series, or you can just stick around here for a bit and listen to me tell you why I didn’t really like this game. One thing that I did like, and it’s probably something you’ve just noticed if this is your first time seeing […]

Devil Daggers Video Review

Devil Daggers Video Review

Every second is a level. Devil Daggers is a new indie game that pits the player against an endless stream of demonic monstrosities. Luckily players get a magical dagger that can, oddly, shoot out other daggers. Learning how to dispatch enemies and utilize the daggers various mechanics the most efficiently is key to being able to survive in the game. After all, you only have one life, and even a slight bump into an enemy warrants an instantaneous death. The […]

The Body Changer Review: Still Growing

The Body Changer Review: Still Growing

The Body Changer is a new puzzle/shooter hybrid game from The Short And The Tall that just launched after a run on Steam Early Access. I’m not typically one for puzzle games, but I had some free time over the weekend and seeing as how it was the first game in my queue to check out, I decided to give The Body Changer a go. I played it for a couple hours, so my impressions below are from roughly the […]

Cradle Review: The Breaking Bough

Cradle Review: The Breaking Bough

Cradle is a first-person adventure game from Flying Cafe for Semianimals. Yes, that is their name. In Cradle players awaken in a state of amnesia, in a yurt somewhere in Mongolia. It’s the near-future, I believe the game said it was nearing 2080, and your yurt is filled with antique equipment…and a cyborg lady. The entire game takes place in the yurt, the few acres surrounding the yurt, and in a nearby abandoned theme park. The game is short enough […]

Submerged Review: Under Water, Above the Rest

Submerged Review: Under Water, Above the Rest

Submerged from Uppercut Games caught me completely off guard. I don’t know what exactly I was expecting when I first loaded into the game, but I certainly wasn’t expecting to beat the game in one sitting. Running at just around 4 hours, I completed Submerged last night, in one shot. I can’t think of another game that I’ve done that with, apart from the very short Dear Esther. I just could not put Submerged down. Submerged gave me everything I […]

Coffin Dodgers Review: Race For Your Life

Coffin Dodgers Review: Race For Your Life

Having worked in a grocery store throughout my high school and early college days, I am well aware of the danger that is an old person behind the wheel of an electric scooter. Nothing is safe once they toss their cane in the wire basket, shuffle their old legs onto the platform, and put the pedal to the metal. The dangerous mixture of failing vision, poor reflexes, and failing coordination, make these drivers some of the most wreckless around. While […]

Fort Meow Review: Purrfectly Secure

Fort Meow Review: Purrfectly Secure

As a kid, building forts was arguably the best thing to do on a rainy day. Grab some pillows, a blanket, anchor the blanket to the couch and drape it down to the pillows, and boom: makeshift living room tent. I always built the fort because it gave me a cool place to do homework, or to read a book, or play Pokemon Blue on my Game Boy Color. In Fort Meow, I was tasked with building a fort of […]

Tap Heroes Review: Tapped Out

Tap Heroes Review: Tapped Out

So I played Cookie Clicker back when that was a popular thing, I’ve been playing Tap Titans on my iPad as something to do when I need to kill some time, and just now I’ve sunk about a solid 45 minutes into Tap Heroes…just because. For those of you who don’t recognize any of those titles, all three of those games belong to this new wave of RPG-esque games where players must tap/click on an item many, many, many times […]

The Silent Age Review: Deja Vu

The Silent Age Review: Deja Vu

The Silent Age from developer House on Fire has me a bit conflicted for this review. The game’s completed story and gameplay experience was great, and I will remember it fondly. Unfortunately though, the dialog and disconnected puzzles all felt lacking, or weaker than they could be. Let me elaborate: The Silent Age begins with a series of images that tell the story of protagonist Joe’s life until the events of the game begin. He lived a solitary life, moving between unremarkable […]
