Frozen is now in Disney Club Penguin too

In Frozen is everywhere news, the Disney Club Penguin virtual world is now hosting a Frozen Party. Frankly, I’m surprised it’s taken this long. You know, since both are Disney and everything. You’d think the company would have wanted to capitalize on this right away, but nope! Here’s an icy adventure freezing up August. Granted, more »

Chess 2: The Sequel isn’t as crazy as it sounds

I’m going to be honest with you. This was going to be an opinions article where I was going to tear into the notion of game touting itself as Chess 2. Because Chess is Chess, and it’s the kind of classic game that shouldn’t need a sequel. It would be like saying next there should more »

Let’s Kickstart the Queen at Arms otome

Okay, so this is a Kickstarter project that really doesn’t need assistance anymore. Queen at Arms has already reached and passed its $2,500 funding goal. It’s past the $3,600 point, in fact, meaning it passed the Additional Sprites stretch goal and is nearing the Additional Romance Path $4,000 goal. Which is part of why we more »

The Sims 4: Missing a lot of features

I recently discovered a list of 89 things that will be missing from The Sims 4. It’s insane that the game will be missing so many of the features that made its predecessors great, and the scope of the things that are being left out is seemingly random. One case that I can make for more »

I wish Sierra’s King’s Quest reboot was point-and-click adventure

Sierra is known for its point-and-click adventure games. Think of the genre as the developer and publisher’s lifeblood. Which is why I’m currently heartbroken, because King’s Quest isn’t going to be a point-and-click series any more. The Odd Gentlemen, developer of the reboot, has said it’s just a general adventure game. Did your heart just more »

Casual Friday Casual Game Update for August 15, 2014

It’s a good day to relax with casual games, isn’t it? I mean, I’d recommend going out and enjoying the weekend weather, since summer will be ending soon, but if you do decide to stay in, there’s a lot to enjoy. Most notably is Edolie, a new RPG from Amaranth Games and Eridani Games. Still, more »

I’m skeptical of Overkill’s Walking Dead game

How many video games has The Walking Dead inspired. The answer is six, seven if we’re counting TellTale’s The Walking Dead seasons separately. Now, how many of those games have knocked our socks off? Exactly one, TellTale’s The Walking Dead. Which, again, could be two for those who count the and as separate games. This, more »

I have high hopes for Life is Strange

I have high hopes for Life is Strange. This is primarily because I believe in Dontnod. The developer takes chances in the hopes of providing video game experiences with unique narratives. Sure, didn’t exactly pan out. The idea was sound, and the prospect of tampering with peoples’ memories was promising. It opened a moral can more »

8 Sites with “good” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles media

Know what’s out in theaters today? That new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. (Yuck!) I think I speak for the majority of the internet when I say no thank you. That’s okay. We do not want this. Really. Which is why I propose we spend the day enjoying good, classic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles media more »

The case for one-handed RPGs continues

Playing The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky makes me want a new laptop. Mine can run it well; it’s just a huge, clunky beast of a machine and I want to play Trails in bed. I totally could, if I had one of those smaller, touch-based Windows 8 tablet-hybrid thingies. I’m using a more »
