Show and Tell: A look at Claire (PC)

It’s time once again for us all to gather together and enjoy a game. In this week’s Show and Tell, April and I decided to play a little horror game by the name of Claire. Fun fact, this is actually our second take on this game. Technical difficulties meant an episode I recorded with Graham more »

The Mysterious Shadows of Skullshadow Island: A Brothers Coleman Mystery

You don’t have to have seen westerns to like Blazing Saddles, disaster movies to like Airplane!, or blacksploitation movies to like I’m Gonna Git You Sucka.

The Kirby Amiibo is adorable. The Meta Knight Amiibo is badass, and also kind of adorable. The King Dedede Amiibo, which I was lucky enough to pick up yesterday, is also freakin’ adorable. I’m gushing. I love these things. I even took a nice picture of them, because they’re the focus of this post. I’m more »

Saints Row IV’s Super Knockback upgrade takes the fun out of exploding cars

One of my absolute favorite things to do with cars in Saints Row IV is to blow them up by shooting them. Hey, don’t judge me, you probably do worse. In any case, one of the best guns to use to blow them up was the pump action shot gun. It would only take two more »

I won’t go into all the issues I have with early access, and instead say that since I got my preview copy a few months ago, Hinterland Studios Inc. has done a good job of putting out regular updates.
