Throwback Review: Mirror's Edge - Bottomless Pit
We all know that EA is... subversive, when it comes to evolution.

 

A publisher known for being seemingly suicidal when it comes to new IPs, and dedicated to

Shape of The World Review - Epiphany Fields
Hello. How are you? Your err... hands smell nice?

 

Excuse the formalities, but I feel like maybe I've been a bit too much of a Negative Nancy lately. Here I am,

Pankapu Review –…

474
I think I’m turning pretentious. I mean, even MORE pretentious.   Between all of the crap I’ve been playing in-between sessions of Black Ops 3 and Rainbow Six: Siege, they all share a similar theme: All art, basic gameplay, no value. A trinity that equates to half of the indie game marketplace, and even moreso on…

The Metronomicon Review…

There’s a hell of a lot of music-based games coming out recently:   Crypt of The Necrodancer, Thumper, Masquerada, and Rez Infinite, just to name a few of the thousand. Soon we’ll see a resurgence in the mainstream, like Guitar Hero mixed with Tetris. I was going to say Final Fantasy but that’s already the subject on the…

Songbringer Review –…

454
I don’t even know about this one.   This is Songbringer, from the one-man army Nathanael Weiss, better known as Wizard Fu. Longringer is a game that does not want to show its hand immediately. It’s a rougelike not with a twist, but with an aura around it. One that I can’t fully…

Surf World Series…

You ever seen Point Break?   Stupid question actually, it’s an essential for anyone whether they’re a fan of surfing or of Gary Busey’s weird face. That was the film that introduced me to the concept of surfing, and seeing Patrick Swayze balance himself like a bronzed god on the…

The Indie Investigation…

903
Thank Christ August is ending.   I’ll be honest, I looked forward to this month. Xbox One’s Summer Spotlight rolled out in full force along with its newly added Creator’s Collection, and all I got was shovelware, asset flips, and boredom. Screw it, if Microsoft isn’t going to play…

PAX East 2019: Wunderling
