Squirreltopia Review: Twitchy Fun

Squirreltopia Price: $3.99 System(s): PC Release Date: January 12, 2015 Publisher (Developer): Surreal Distractions (Surreal Distractions) ESRB Rating: N/A Squirrels are twitchy, tricky creatures. It’s actually quite odd that they haven’t really starred in many games until now, aside from say Acorn Assault, because they’re a natural protagonist. Especially for gut-reaction, muscle memory platformers. Cue more »

The Evil Within is incredibly cheap on Steam this weekend

This weekend, Steam users will be able to purchase Shinji Mikami’s newest horror game, The Evil Within, for 66% off its usual price. Or, in simpler terms, $20.40. Or, in practical terms, two packs of cigarettes in the state of New York. Or, I guess you could even consider it to be equivalent to 10 more »

Here’s that Bud Light Pac-Man commercial

People put a lot of effort into Superbowl commercials. They know it’s the one time people will go out of their way to pay attention to every ad, and sometimes even go online to watch and rewatch what will hopefully become viral sensations. In the case of one, the company isn’t waiting until Super Bowl more »

Punch-Out!! on Wii U is great, with one exception

When Nintendo announced digital Wii games on the Wii U eShop, I was pretty excited. Mostly because Punch-Out!!, one of the Wii’s low-key greats, was on its way for a great price. Next Level Games has done great work every time it had a Nintendo property to play with, and Punch-Out!! is no exception. The more »

Criminal Girls immediately encourages “motivation”

You all may be going on and on about HuniePop, and maybe even Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque, but there’s another risque game you should have on your radar. It’s Criminal Girls: Invite Only, a game many are surprised NIS America took a risk on releasing outside of Japan. We here at Technology Tell’s Gaming Channel more »

Seasons of the Wolf pretty, but simplistic

Tales of Aravorn: Seasons of the Wolf is a game right up my alley. It’s a classic RPG combined with a visual novel game. If you like the two, it’s definitely worth taking a look. Because the foundation of the game is a visual novel, the graphics, art style, and writing of the game are more »
