I am Bread Preview: Toasty

I am Bread is no joke. It may seem like one, with its QWOP controls. Plus, it is from Bossa Studios, creator of . No, this is a strangely compelling, strategic kind of game. There will be laughs along the way, but you’ll also be in for quite the challenge. The basic concept in I more »

What’s going on with Winged Cloud’s The Guardian Spell? (Update 2)

If you enjoy otome games, you’re bound to look into independent projects. It’s the best way to find visual novel dating sims in English, and trolling websites searching for official translations, fan translations, and original projects is the best way to find something new to play. Unfortunately, people who backed Winged Cloud’s The Guardian Spell more »


Valve had a right to pull Hatred

I’m quite certain everyone remembers the trailer for Hatred, which is quite literally the revenge porn game. I’m not going to talk much about my opinion on the game, because let’s face it. People are allowed to make whatever kind of game they want. This is the free market at work. Producers produce a product, more »

Wait for a sale for Xeodrifter

I have good news and bad news about Renegade Kid’s Xeodrifter. The good news is, it’s a lot better than the abysmal Planet Crashers it released in 2012. The bad news is, it isn’t as great as the now iconic and multiplatform Mutant Mudds. Yes, Xeodrifter is one of “those” games. It’s middling. It has more »

Elegy for a Dead World: Ghost Writer

Elegy for a Dead World is a video game with the most accurately self-descriptive title since 2009’s Bikini Samurai Squad. The opening scene introduces you as an astronaut jetting through the vacuum of space in a suit with a bubble helmet that only shows your profile in silhouette. You float past the debris of a destroyed spaceship more »

Get out there and Don’t Starve Together

Here’s an Early Access surprise. Don’t Starve Together has launched on Steam. What better way to enjoy the holidays and boost those social links with friends and family than by facing the wilderness and unknown as a team. Nothing, if you ask me. Though, not everyone should consider buying Don’t Starve Together, now that it’s more »

Be cautiously optimistic about Starbound Winter Update

Starbound broke my heart. I know, it was Early Access and things happen, but there were certain expectations. They weren’t met, and we went months without official updates. It wasn’t until December that we finally heard word about progress and started seeing new, unstable releases. Now, there’s a Starbound Winter Update trailer of what should more »

I don’t know why I don’t like Convoy as much as FTL

FTL: Faster Than Light is a game where you go from point to point, and random interactions happen. Maybe you’ll find random loot. Maybe you’ll have to fight a pirate ship. Maybe you’ll have to play diplomat. The goal is to get to the end of the game and fight the rebel flagship. Convoy is more »

Apple’s censoring of Papers, Please is stupid

If you’ve never played Papers, Please!, it’s a stress management game in which you play a guard at a government checkpoint of a fictional country. Your job is to check people’s various papers, make sure it’s all in order, and either deny them, or wave them through. It’s one of those games where you will more »

Cats dig Octodad

This is Octodad. He’s the star of Octodad: Dadliest Catch. You can find it on the PC, PS4, and eventually even the Vita. But this particular Octodad is one I purchased at the PlayStation Experience this past weekend. He was supposed to be my souvenir. You know, a little something special. Especially since I didn’t more »
