Testing out Starbound Upbeat Giraffe

The Starbound Upbeat Giraffe update is here, as I mentioned yesterday. It’s a huge development, since it entirely changes aspects about the game. There’s a different start, new progression, additional gameplay elements, and feels completely different. Which is, of course, why I decided to do a brief Let’s Play video showing what it’s now like. more »

Videoball Preview: Do not play Videoball against Tim Rogers

Look, I get it. Videoball, the minimalist title from Action Button Entertainment, is a promising game, and you want to give it a try. And Tim Rogers, the main mind behind the game, is right there. But don’t give in to the temptation. Sure, you may have seen the game here and there over the more »

Tales of Aravorn: Seasons of the Wolf Price: $24.99 System(s): PC Release Date: November 15, 2014 Publisher (Developer): Winter Wolves (Winter Wolves) ESRB Rating: “Mature” for violence and suggestive themes I’m a huge fan of visual novel games.

Starbound receives first stable update since March 2014

Wow. It’s been almost a year, but Chucklefish has finally come through and delivered a stable update for Starbound, it’s interstellar exploration and adventure game. It’s a shock and awe kind of moment, am I right? Not that there haven’t been minor, unstable updates in the year since. But, the crux is that those updates more »

Dragon’s Dogma Online is coming to Japan this year

Capcom is adapting the Dragon’s Dogma IP into a free-to-play MMO, the company announced in a recent issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu. Thanks to Gematsu and Siliconera’s translation work, we know a bit more about the game than just its genre.  Dragon’s Dogma Online will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC, but only in Japan. Indeed, more »

JumpJet Rex Preview: A big head and little arms

In a time when a Borderlands Collector’s Edition can run you $400 and licensed games, specifically Alien: Isolation and Shadow of Mordor, are some of the best on the market, we can always find solace in at least one familiar constant. We’ll never run out of 2D indie platformers. The most recent addition to that list (that I’ve more »

Our game could be your life: Open-world games need to cut it out

Why bother playing a video game? That’s a very basic and more than slightly patronizing question, but one that nevertheless begs to be asked as video games seek to annex ever more colossal volumes of our lives. I’m not talking about the Candy Crushes and Threeses of the world, which constantly beckon us to distraction more »

Examining the Creative Mode and Munari Starbound mods

As you saw the other day, I went ahead and made my first Let’s Play video for Technology Tell’s Gaming Channel, because boredom and a holiday are powerful forces. Since I had more spare time after that, I decided to show the power of being OP with Starbound mods. After all, we’re pretty limited in more »

Sword of Asumi Review: Proving oneself

Sword of Asumi Price: $15.99 System(s): PC Release Date: January 8, 2015 Publisher (Developer): AJTilley.com (AJTilley.com) ESRB Rating: N/A. I’d say it’s okay for players ages 13 and up. More and more crowdfunded games are finding their way to market, and each one released is further proof that sometimes, it’s okay to take a chance more »

Dex Preview: Start exploring Harbor Prime

I was alone in a futuristic, gritty town. People shuffled along the street past me. Some seemed like victims of circumstance, others like they had purposely come to a place like Harbor Prime for a reason. Not a good one, either. There were no directions for me. No story pointing me in the right way more »

The Cat Lady makes you want to keep playing

It might be a weird thing to say, what with how many hours I’ve put into Skyrim and Long Live The Queen. Surely I’ve been excited to keep playing those games, right? Not so much. I have really bad ADHD, and it’s hard for anything, even a game I really enjoy, to keep me occupied more »
