Video Game Critic Simulator is good for a few laughs

My parents raised me to realize that sometimes you really need to just laugh at yourself. Sometimes making others happy at your expense is as good for you as it is for them. There’s a reason I always say “Hump Day!” at least once every Wednesday. I don’t care if people laugh at me, at more »

Screenshot fun with Backstage Pass

A few weeks ago, I did a preview for Sakevisual’s Backstage Pass. (Which happens to be on Steam’s Early Access, hint hint.) The first playthrough didn’t go so well for me, as Sian ended up alone forever. Which naturally meant going through the game a few more times for a better result. In so doing, more »

The Vigatar creator doesn’t understand how games work

Every once and a while, a crowdfunding endeavor comes up that makes you squint your eyes, furrow your brow, and furiously shake your head. “No, uh uh, nope, we don’t want or need this.” This, my friends, is how I feel about the Vigatar. (Which rhymes with minotaur, another thing we definitely can live without.) more »

I Guess Valve Steam Machines will be at Gamescom 2014

Ready for something not-entirely unexpected? It seems Valve Steam Machines will be at Gamescom 2014. I know, you’re not especially shocked. It is to be expected.

Here’s Your July 4, 2014 Indie Game Bundle Update

The indie game bundle update is back! Did you miss it? Sorry for the delay. It’s just there were a lot of E3 previews that needed to get done, and even though this indie game bundle update looks all neat and tidy to read, it actually takes a ridiculously long time to write up. But more »

E3 2014 Preview: I Couldn’t Walk Away from Long Take

I wanted to walk away from Long Take. Which is a horrible feeling to have when you’re a journalist at an event like E3 2014. I’m there to work, not indulge every passing fancy or desire. There’s a sense of duty. Almost everything must be experienced, and that includes the good, the bad, and the more »


Dreamfall Chapters is Now Episodic

Despite receiving $600,000 over its original $850,000 goal for Dreamfall Chapters on Kickstater, has run into some money issues. Don’t worry, the developer isn’t asking for more, per say. In a recent Kickstarter update, Red Thread revealed it would be releasing the game as an episodic piece. It’s something that was originally intended, but scrapped. more »
