On June 23, 2020, Crytivo and Sparky Tail Games announced and launched a Kickstarter campaign for Undercat, a retro-styled, 2D action platformer. In just under a week, the campaign has managed to surpass $3,500 out of its $15,000 goal. If the game gets funded beyond that, there are even…

So, earlier this year, EA announced that they like money (no surprises there) and that they’re extremely interested in profiting off our nostalgia by remastering several beloved games from their back catalogue. Without missing a beat, players gleefully interpreted this little kernel of news as ‘a remastered Mass Effect…

Dread Nautical Review…

“My mind’s an endless storm out in the cold unknown.”   My relationship with X-Com is one of unrequited love and passionate hatred. Even though I got into the turn-based party quite late with Firaxis’ 2012 version of Enemy Unknown, I still found myself absorbed in an adventure that…

“Looking down into the water, it’s hard to make out your face.”   You know, it’s crazy how in all of this advancement into making games fun and educational hasn’t led into the two meeting each other for younger audiences. I highly doubt you’re going to find a pre-teen…

“Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky, that’s where I’m gunna go when I die.”   Just once I’d like to see a journey through the universe’s vast unknown go without a hitch in the plan. According to every piece of media not invented by Gene…

“You sound real good and you play the part well, but the energy you givin’ off is so unfamiliar — I don’t feel ya.”   Man alive, 2020 is an absolute mess, isn’t it? That bloody virus, our stupid leaders powering the economy with our dusty bones, like there’s…

When the original Saints Row launched in 2006 you would be hard-pressed to name something it excelled at. It wasn’t necessarily a bad game, but it seemed like a pale imitation of the Grand Theft Auto series that so heavily inspired it. It wasn’t until Saints Row II when…

“Man, I keep that heat up off for who got beef with me.”   This is an odd redemption story, to say the least. Cut to a decade back, and Silver Dollar Games was synonymous with some of the worst meme titles in the now-defunct Xbox Live Indie Games…
