The Zen of Cat Goes Fishing

I wanted something simple to play before I’d fall asleep. A soothing sort of game, one where objectives were there, but didn’t really matter. They were trappings to ease one into the mechanics, but never forced the player down one route another. Something with no complications, that only required me to enjoy the ride. I more »

It’s hard to top Resident Evil 3

Recently, I got Resident Evil HD Remake, and I have been playing the ever loving crap out of it. This is because it’s a legitimately good game, and it deserves to be played. However, it takes me back to all the other Resident Evil games I’ve played, which is a majority of them. And I more »

Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition Made Me Regret Owning a Vita

I’ll admit it; I’m one of the irrational people who refuses to give up on the PlayStation Vita. It might have something to do with my love of tiny things. When I was a kid, I preferred Micro Machines to Matchbox Cars. And I spent an ungodly amount of money on an early Palmtop computer, more »

Swords & Soldiers II Preview: Meat again on the battlefield

How To: Easily FAT32 format SD and microSD cards

You have a 3DS or 3DS XL, and you’re running into a problem. You’ve got a 32GB SD card in there, or perhaps even a 32GB microSD card in its adapter, but are coming close to running out of space. However, FAT32 formatting a 64GB or higher card is a chore on a Windows PC. more »

Ys: Memories of Celceta and the Pitfalls of Sleep Mode

I love the Ys series. I first picked up the PlayStation 2 version of The Ark of Napishtim on a whim, and later tore through The Oath in Felghana over the course of a few days. One can imagine my excitement when Memories of Celceta was announced for the Vita. Life has a habit of getting in the way, more »

I don’t get Dragon Age Origins’ combat

Recently, because it was available for free, I got a hold of Dragon Age Origins. I’d heard it was an incredibly good RPG, and that well may be true. Certainly, it seems to have all the interesting parts that a good RPG should have. It has interesting stories, solid character creation, and you get to 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 »

Game & Watch handhelds are still magic

Sorry folks, but this is a bragging kind of post. Though, if you enjoy Nintendo-related nostalgia, you probably won’t mind. See, I happened to come across actual, real, in almost-perfect condition, Game & Watch handhelds. It was one of those special moments. It happened one Sunday evening. My friends and I were out for a more »

I love when Danganronpa lies to me

Quick! Why do you like games? You’re reading Technology Tell’s Gaming Channel, so you do like games, right? But why do you? I’m sorry; I’ve tricked you. I already know why you like games. It’s the same reason virtually anyone likes games, myself included. Games are the only form of mass media that give viewers control over more »

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 »
