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 »

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 »

Fallout versus Skyrim is the greatest video you’ll see today

I know, I know. I write entirely too many articles about Skyrim. But this article isn’t just about Skyrim! It’s also about Fallout! So obviously, this is something new, interesting, and different, right? Of course it is, don’t contradict me. I’m an Elven Princess, dammit. Look, the important thing is that this Fallout vs Skyrim more »

My favorite Pokemon game is fan-made

If you’re anything like me, you absolutely adore Pokemon. I’ve loved the game since the first time I played Blue, and I haven’t stopped loving it since.

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.

As you probably, hopefully, read a few hours ago, the Technology Tell Gaming Channel’s Citizens of Earth review went over all the reasons why Austin loved the game. It was pretty comprehensive, but it didn’t touch on one of the reasons why I loved the game. For me, Citizens of Earth was a delightful romp more »

For Nintendo in 2015, loyalty is everything

Nintendo has announced that its loyalty program, Club Nintendo, will be shutting down in the coming months. The company must be planning some sort of more robust successor, as it alluded to in its statement, because in 2015, Nintendo needs its loyal fans more than ever. To many, the American version of Club Nintendo never more »
