Swing Copters is not the next Flappy Bird

So-difficult-it’s-practically-impossible has become its own game genre, thanks to mobile gamers. They elevated these ridiculously difficult titles, which provide five minutes of play at best for even the most skilled, to a commercially viable property. Flappy Bird is heralded is the “king” of this cluster, but I feel Swing Copters will be the impossible games’ more »

The Sims 4: Missing a lot of features

I recently discovered a list of 89 things that will be missing from The Sims 4. It’s insane that the game will be missing so many of the features that made its predecessors great, and the scope of the things that are being left out is seemingly random. One case that I can make for more »

Vanguard V coming to a Virtual Boy near you?

Ready for a surprise? Let’s ease you into it. An indie game by the name of Vanguard V has been accepting pledges via Kickstarter. The game is being developed entirely for virtual reality platforms. Of course, Oculus Rift, and Project Morpheus are two of the most mainstream ports that the game is hoping to be more »

Alice in the Heart is a tragedy

Alice in the Hearts is a tragedy Quinrose makes amazing otome games. That is, dating sims for girls. Alice in the Country of Hearts is among their best, so it should have been a triumph when the PSP version was localized and ported to iOS and Android devices as Alice in the Hearts. Alas, instead more »

It’s a good day to relax with casual games, isn’t it? I mean, I’d recommend going out and enjoying the weekend weather, since summer will be ending soon, but if you do decide to stay in, there’s a lot to enjoy. Most notably is Edolie, a new RPG from Amaranth Games and Eridani Games. Still, more »

Newer Ouya is better

I love to talk about all kinds of Android games during the weekly Android Amusements updates, but I also like to talk about systems. To be more specific, the Ouya. A lot of times I won’t mention it, but I am side-loading games onto my old, launch run Ouya for good times. I know the more »

Tangram Attack: More about stylus skills than tangrams

For those who need a little reminding, tangrams originated from China, and are essentially pictures that are formed from basic shapes like triangles, and squares. I remember having a math teacher in elementary school that liked to torture us with these. I always sucked at tangrams. There was something about the fact that it makes more »

Woolfe console releases confirmed

Some may find this news not exactly news-worthy, but I find it incredibly important. Allow me to explain. Woolfe, the Red Riding Hood inspired platformer from developer GRIN, will be released on consoles. The game was originally only confirmed for PC back when it first found its way on my radar during E3 2014. But more »

Important Importables Review: Girls RPG: Cinderellife

Girls RPG: Cinderellife is weird. It’s nothing like you’d expect from an RPG. Really, it’s more of a life simulation. I mean, a player does get to level up various parameters, usually by spending money on various clothes, hairstyles, and accessories. There are missions too, and an overarching story. Really though, it’s about experiencing life more »

You get caught up with other work and events like E3, and before you realize it, months have gone by without an update. But Important Importables has returned (for realsies) and today’s update is one of jubilation. Because more »
