  • Ironcast is Coming to Consoles

    26 Mar 2015

    The self-proclaimed Puzzlequest meets FTL game Ironcast launched today on Steam, and is planned for release in the near future on PS3, PS4, and X1. Hopefully you like alternate histories, as this one takes place in the 1880s of England (no, this isn’t The Order) with inspiration from H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. The game […]

  • Grab and Go with Grabbles

    19 Mar 2015

    Are you looking for a multiplayer-heavy game for your Xbox One? Are there times when you are alone but still want to play a game? Do you like 2D platformers in the vein of Super Meat Boy, or controls that are limited to twin sticks and a trigger? Well, have I got a game for […]

  • Bringing Stop-Motion to Life with Armikrog

    06 Mar 2015

    Pencil Test Studios is special to me because of their history. If you don’t know them by name, perhaps you will when you hear some of the games the co-founders worked on: Disney’s Alladin, Earthworm Jim, and The Neverhood. If you haven’t played any of those, then you have my condolences. In any case, their […]

  • Dropping the Bombshell

    02 Mar 2015

    Do you like isometric games? How about action games? What about both of those combined? Well, have we got the game for you… you may remember when 3D Realms announced this back when they rose from the grave, but did you know this game was being kicked around back in ’98?!

  • Kickstart: Edge of Eternity

    17 Feb 2015

    It’s common to hear people complaining that there aren’t any RPGs that utilize Turn-Based combat anymore. Rather, most have gone the way of Real-Time Combat. And while that’s fine, there’s something special about ATB/Turn-Based – perhaps it’s because that’s how the genre started out and what many people first experienced – it’s always been a […]

  • A Tale of Social Anxiety Disorder

    11 Feb 2015

    Sym is an upcoming puzzle-platformer from ATRAX Games that explores social anxiety from the perspective of Josh. Josh is a teenage boy, and you’ll be traversing his perception of reality and the world he built to avoid his fears. Interested yet?

  • Persona 5 Trailer

    05 Feb 2015

    I’m not sure I can adequately express the excitement this trailer brought me. Persona is one of my favorite RPG series ever, and is easily in my top 3 of all time. If you’ve never played one of these yet, allow me to give some backstory.

  • Where Has Chris Been?

    31 Jan 2015

    Hello all! I just wanted to post a brief update as to what I have been doing other than FFoP over the last 6 or so months. First off though, I would like to apologize for my extended absence from the blog. In short, life happened. Fall semester at my college began and while I […]

  • Where’s my FFoP?

    29 Jan 2015

    Hey guys, sorry about the long hiatus in regards to articles/content in general. I was finishing up my degree in December and have since been on the hunt for financial stability (and there have been quite a few personal matters to attend to as well) – while I still haven’t found a job (there’s one […]

  • Double Fine’s PS Experience

    08 Dec 2014

    This weekend yielded a ton of great news for PlayStation owners, with Yakuza 5 finally being localized for the US and EU, Persona 5 being officially announced for regions outside of Japan, and Suikoden II coming to the PSN after years of fans asking for it. Several new games were shown off, and Uncharted 4 […]

  • Acting Out Aggressively

    06 Dec 2014

    If you’re a fan of RTS games, you’ve no doubt heard of Eugen Systems. If you don’t recognize them by name, perhaps you’ll recognize their games: Act of War, RUSE, and the Wargame franchise. In addition to two other unannounced RTS titles, Act of Aggression has burst out of the gates and is looking at […]

  • Game Music Bundle 8

    04 Dec 2014

    Are you a fan of video game music? I’ve loved the soundtracks since I first heard Manami Matsumae’s work on the Mega Man series before I could even read. Since then, I’ve grown to love music of many forms, and video games span so many genres and hold so many emotions that it’s hard not […]

  • QA for R8Games

    01 Nov 2014

    Have you always wanted to work in the field of video games? Are you immune to previous QA workers saying game testing is awful? Have an interest in the Wipeout series (not the wacky physical humor tv show made into a game)? Do you have Facebook and fancy yourself lucky? If your answer is yes […]

  • Simon Says Check this Update

    Did you ever play ASA: A Space Adventure? It was released in January of 2013, and has since been greenlit on Steam. Due to the issues with the original release, Simon has teamed up with Andrea Rinaldi, another indie developer, to recreate the game in a new engine. The ASA: Remastered Edition will be available […]
