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 »

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.

Seasons of the Wolf pretty, but simplistic

Tales of Aravorn: Seasons of the Wolf is a game right up my alley. It’s a classic RPG combined with a visual novel game. If you like the two, it’s definitely worth taking a look. Because the foundation of the game is a visual novel, the graphics, art style, and writing of the game are 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. I’m not going to lie, my favorite pokemon is Butterfree, followed closely by Gardevoire. But oddly enough, my favorite version of Pokemon is actually one off the internet. more »

I’m not talking about the Candy Crushes and Threeses of the world, which constantly beckon us to distraction more »

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 »
