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 »

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 »

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 »

Why is Skyrim updating all of a sudden?

As I think anyone who’s been reading this website for any length of time knows, I play a huge amount of Skyrim. I play it so often that I actually sometimes think an airplane flying over head is, in fact, a giant dragon that I might have to fight. I may have problems. In any more »

Pixels is a movie that exists, but shouldn’t

Sometimes, our lovely editor posts things on the company Facebook page in hopes that we’ll write articles about it. Amongst these things came a trailer for the movie Pixel. Here, watch. (But really, you shouldn’t.) If you didn’t or couldn’t see the trailer, I’ll try to summarize it for you as best I can. Aliens more »

Watch how easy it is to win in Card City Nights

You know what day it is. It’s Friday, which means I tap into my Steam backlog to play a game for the first time while you watch. This Card City Nights play session will be part of a long and hallowed, 3 or 4 week tradition. Yup, it’s a sacred sort of trust. Card City more »

The saddest Skyrim story ever told

Remember that time when my daughter in Skyrim wound up adopting a pet bunny? It followed her around and somehow survived for a really long time? Well, once again I decided to bring my daughter adventuring with me. We joined the Imperial Legion and were assigned to the Pale. She had adopted another pet, a more »

GameStop is accepting used PS2s again, and that’s great

Apparently, GameStop has decided that they really do want your used PS2s, even though they stopped accepting them back in 2013. It never made sense to me why they’d stop accepting them. There’s always people who want to buy a used system, and even when it’s an older system, people will want it. And quite more »

SteamLeft lets you know how long you need to play

I recently discovered a website called SteamLeft. What it does is calculate how long it would take you to finish playing all the games in your Steam library. After doing so it presents the time needed, accompanied by a fun time related fact. Take my result for example. It would take me 14 days, one more »

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 »

Quality Time with Level 257

Nobody goes to Level 257 alone. The thought struck me as I walked toward Namco Entertainment’s entertainment hub in Schaumburg, IL’s Woodfield Mall. Even though it was one of the Beta Tester nights, prior to the official March 2, 2015 launch, the lot was full and groups of people were flowing in. Some, like me, more »
