Pillars of Eternity reminds me of Ultima in all the best ways

I don’t have a great track record with isometric RPGs. I always think I like them, but then when I actually play them, I end up not liking them. I’m sure it’s me and not them, because this is even true of some of the gold standard isometric RPGs. The last one I played at more »

12 of the most useful Cities Skylines mods

Cities Skylines has been my latest obsession, which is surprising since I’m terrible at it unless I’ve got mods enabled. That’s the glory of the game though. Three mods come standard, and the Steam workshop provides a boat load more. With so many Cities Skylines mods to choose from, it can be tough to decide more »

Feast your eyes on Disney Infinity 2.0’s Falcon

All of the Avengers can finally assemble in Disney Infinity 2.0. I guess he had some things to take care of, maybe he was roosting, but that doesn’t matter. Falcon is here now and we’re glad of it. The group is complete and ready to be enjoyed. Besides, we can forgive a little tardiness when more »

Let’s look at the Disney Infinity 2.0’s Loki

Let’s look at the Disney Infinity 2.0’s Loki This has been a rather momentous week for anyone keeping up with Disney Infinity 2.0. The last two figures were released, meaning the hunt is finally over. It’s done. No more waiting. The Avengers set is complete. And, one might say it’s a good way to go, more »

Okay? is the next Desert Golfing

Last year, we ended up getting this great time sink for Android and iOS devices called Desert Golfing. It was great, as you’d endlessly hit a golf ball towards a hole on a sandy golf course, relying on proper angles to reach the goal. Now, earlier this month, we’ve gotten what seems to be its more »

Gen Con warns Indiana governor over controversial religion bill

On March 23, 2015, the CEO of Gen Con sent a letter (PDF) to Indiana governor Mike Pence, asking him not to sign SB 101, a law that would implement the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) into Indiana state law.

The rumored Batman Arkham Asylum and City remakes are stupid

Apparently, there’s a rumor going around that Batman Arkham Asylum and Batman Arkham City are going to get a remaster. I have no idea if the rumor is true or not, but with The Last Of Us Remastered making half of all the money, it wouldn’t surprise me. Here’s the problem, though. Those games are more »

Cities Skylines reminds me that I suck at sim games

How do I city? I mean, seriously. I’ve read plenty of beginner’s guides relating to Cities Skylines, and I still haven’t figured it out. The glory of Cities Skylines is that it tosses you into the deep end immediately. There are a few tutorials that will pop up when you first encounter a new section more »

Toad is both the best and worst Amiibo

The first Super Mario wave of Nintendo’s Amiibo figures just hit stores. Included in this batch is Toad, the worst one released so far. And also the best. Toad’s the worst because it doesn’t do much Toad is technically not the least compatible figure from a number-of-titles perspective (that honor goes to Villager, Pit, Diddy Kong, Little more »

Some instant noodles with your The Awakened Fate Ultimatum?

When playing The Awakened Fate Ultimatum you are given the choice to stay in a room with one of the two female leads. Jupiel is an angel, and is the player character’s “exclusively assigned angel”. Essentially she’s a glorified assistant/battle partner. The other lead is Ariael, a devil scientist who is being held captive by more »

Let’s narrate the Three Fourths Home Extended Edition

Earlier today, I reviewed Three Fourths Home Extended Edition. It’s an expanded version of a very experimental and moving visual novel from [bracket]games and Digerati Digital. The thing is, a big part of the game is trying to determine what part you focus on. Do you worriedly watch the road, hoping to see if anything more »

The Awakened Fate Ultimatum has a Christian Bale Batman issue

While playing The Awakened Fate Ultimatum, I couldn’t help but think that it was lacking a bit in the voice acting department. The three lead characters had pretty constant, monotonous voices, consequently making story moments feel rather dull. At least the protagonist, Shin Kamikaze, spoke in a relaxed, “normal” manner. The two female leads, Jupiel more »
