SwapQuest Review –…

For the ever-living forgiveness of Christ, why does every indie game need a gimmick?   Oh, it’s not enough to create an absolutely riveting story and fine-tune every single end of your loose ends, you’ve got to create a control scheme or gameplay mechanic akin to playing Guitar Heros’ Expert +…

I thought the Portal clone died already, you know.   When The Turing Test came out, offering intermediate puzzles, and a philosophical and understandable story of what it truly means to be human, I figured that was it. There was no going uphill from here, Bulkhead have created the quintessential follow-up to Valve’s…

Rhythm.   Rhythm and song are quintessential to life: it’s what brings you brevity, emotion, and uplifting enlightenment. You have to subject yourself to it, give in to the beat and just let the music take over you. It’ll either lead you to the equivalent of a contact high,…

You’d think more developers would make game adaptations of books nowadays.   With the advent of Telltale making millions from tie-ins and what we grudgingly accept as “video games”, you would imagine libraries flooding with publishers looking for the easiest source material to make money off of. Strangely though,…

Circuit Breakers Review…

Insanity. The same thing. Again and again.   Repetition leads to perfection. Perfection of craft, of genre and life itself. You cannot say you succeeded without trying more than once, that’s just a passage of life. Gaming has seen this exact same principle, with its solitary exception being Tetris because, it’s Tetris after…
