Perception Review: The Sound of Madness

June 16th, 2017 -

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be blind? Let’s be honest, you can close your eyes and walk around your house bumping into shit and get a really good idea of what it’s like. Perception has come along to show us that being blind may not be that bad. The game follows a young woman named Cassie, who happens to be blind and on a journey to explore a mansion that has plagued her with nightmares.

Luckily, Cassie has a form of echo location, similar to dolphins or Marvel Comic’s Daredevil, so she can kind of see where she is. This doesn’t explain how the hell she found this mansion across the country – I couldn’t do this while having all of my senses. I am assuming she’s psychic, but the game never really clarifies this.

Everspace Review: Space Odyssey

June 16th, 2017 -

When I was handed Everspace for review, I was honestly terrified. In the past, I have avoided flight sim games like the plague. While I am perfectly fine playing Call of Duty or Destiny for hours on end without getting motion sick, flight sims make me want to throw up immediately. Ever since the space battle from Halo Reach, I haven’t been able to handle anything that remotely involves simulated flight; I would have to have my wife tap in to play. Go ahead, laugh, get it out of your system. Read More »

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: A Telltale Series Episode 2 Review

June 14th, 2017 -

As someone who grew up in a dysfunctional family, the Guardians of the Galaxy hold a special place in my heart. While the team all consists of random misfits who would never cut it with the Justice League or The Avengers, they interact like a family of squabbling siblings. This has proven to be an interesting dynamic in both the comic book series, as well as both of James Gunn’s movie adaptations. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series tries to mimic the same interactions and relationships that the movies featured, with varying degrees of success. Read More »

Kholat Review: Dead in the Snow

June 8th, 2017 -

It takes a special game to teach the player valuable life skills. I actually had to Google how to use a compass to play this game, not because I really wanted to know or anything, but because Kholat literally gives the player no direction whatsoever. You begin your journey exploring the Kholat mountain region of Russia, searching for answers to what happened to a group of students that went missing in 1959. Based on true events, the students were found with strange injuries and to this day, the causes of death are a mystery. Creepy, eh? Read More »

The Walking Dead – A New Frontier Review: New Beginnings

June 5th, 2017 -

Do you have an escape plan in place for the impending zombie apocalypse? If you don’t, you really should; even the CDC does, which can be found here if you don’t believe me. I personally have 1,326 of them, and 1,325 begin with tripping my mother-in-law. If you need help starting yours, or want to see how your partner, friends or family stack up, Telltale’s The Walking Dead series is a great place to start. Read More »
