I hate Pitiri 1977 – watch and see why

Traditionally, Fridays are slow days in the world of video games. Especially prior to events like GDC 2015. It’s why I take the time to record myself briefly playing games for your enlightenment and amusement. Today’s game is Pitiri 1977, a recent acquisition from Groupee’s Remute’s Hipster Orgy Bundle. It doesn’t go well. Which might more »

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires is great for building harems

I’m an otome game fan is. That is, I enjoy dating sims for women, where a player has a harem of men around to meet every possible need. Perhaps it’s because I grew up on shoujo (girl’s) manga and anime, I don’t know. All I know is, if it’s possible to attempt a recreation of more »

The Skyrim Redone creator releases Perkus Maximus

I’ve talked in the past about Skyrim Redone, a perk adjustment mod that changes up exactly how the various perks work and how you gain them. It’s a fun Skyrim mod, because it gives you a slightly different feeling to the entire experience. It’s not my favorite, however, because it feels like you have to more »

Crossy Road is the right way to free-to-play

Have you played Crossy Road yet? Given it’s a free-to-play game available on both Android and iOS, it seems quite likely. Especially since it’s a fun and entertaining take on the whole Frogger formula. Why did the chicken, basket ball player, zombie, whale, or unicorn cross the road? Because if they didn’t keep crossing forever, more »

5 Things I Love about the New 3DS XL

The New 3DS XL is quite a delightful upgrade. Sure, it sucks that Nintendo did feel like it had to do this, rather than a full, new handheld, but still. The New 3DS XL is still a rather delightful machine and, after almost two weeks with it, I’ve noticed a few things that really make more »

Civil War Overhaul Skyrim mod makes for a more robust civil war

One of the downsides of the Civil War questline in Skyrim is that it’s sort of straight forward and not very interesting. There’s a few radiant quests, but ultimately, it’s a matter of killing a bunch of dudes in a fort several times, and then running amok in either Windhelm or Solitude and calling it more »

The Long Dark Needs To Reprogram Their Wolves

The Long Dark promises to be an open world wilderness survival game, and for the most part, it delivers. There’s a great attention to detail, and where there’s something that doesn’t quite line up with the real world and real wilderness survival, they’re generally up front about that. For example, they mention in text before more »

TwitchCon could be better for Let’s Play “stars” than attendees

Game steaming has become a viable method of entertainment media. League of Legends finals draw over 30 million viewers, there were 9.4 million Awesome Games Done Quick unique viewers this year, and in 2014 Twitch had over 100 million unique, monthly viewers.
