While I love huge epic games with realistic graphics, I’ve always had a soft spot for simple adventure and platformer games. Being born in the late 80’s, I was exposed to all of the first gaming systems on the market. My first console was a Sega Genesis, where I was hooked on games like Sonic […]

PAX South 2020: Hands-On With EVERSPACE 2

Everspace 2 is another game that got me really excited for PAX South. The first Everspace slipped past me when it was released, but I am so happy that I discovered and tested the sequel. I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi and starship combat games, and Everspace 2 hit ALL the right buttons. This […]

Posted: January 30, 2020 at 4:22 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

Posted: January 28, 2020 at 9:07 am   /   Videogame Reviews

Let me start by saying Ghostrunner is an extreme exercise in patience and strategy. This cyberpunk parkour game is a test of wits and will, all wrapped up in a beautiful sci-fi package. From the combination of One More Level Games, All In! Games, and 3D Realms, this game made a huge impact on the […]

Developed by Error 404 Game Studios and published by Blowfish Studios, Obey Me is labeled a cooperative “holy-punk brawler”. From the description and trailer, it seemed like a stylish modern version of Diablo. Being a huge fan of Diablo III and the quasi-religious setting in general, I was quick to add this to my list […]
