  • Super Comboman: C-c-c-combo Breaker!

    20 Jul 2014

    I’ve played my fair share of brawlers over the years, starting out with stuff like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Battletoads, followed by the likes of Final Fight and Streets of Rage. The modern day brawlers in my mind would be along the lines of DMC and God of War. Sure, they have puzzles, but […]

  • Divinity Original Sin Review: A Transcendent Journey

    09 Jul 2014

    I’ve played my share of isometric RPGs over the years, be it on PC or console. Of course, some are much better than others, and some adhere to gameplay elements that I prefer over their competitors. To be sure, what I think of when I think cRPG is along the lines of Diablo, Baldur’s Gate, […]

  • Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake Review: Sweet and Moist

    02 Jul 2014

    When I first got a look at Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake, I wasn’t really clamoring to play it. It looked cute, don’t get me wrong, but I wasn’t sold on it. Call me judgmental, as I clearly wasn’t in my right mind. This game is an absolute delight – be it the puzzle solving, […]

  • Blue Estate Review: Drunken Tranquility

    26 Jun 2014

    I grew up playing Duck Hunt on the NES with a light gun, and have been intrigued by light gun games since. Some of my favorite games to play at the arcade would be anything involving them – something about shooting and reloading with a physical gun was just thrilling. It felt more real than […]

  • Among the Sleep Review: Restless Nights

    30 May 2014

    Do you remember what it’s like to be a little kid, wandering around the house and being alone? What about being afraid of the dark? Maybe you thought there were monsters in the closet or under the bed… Among the Sleep puts you back into that perspective, and takes a look at how the world […]

  • Whispering Willows Review: The Life Beyond

    27 May 2014

    You wake up lost without your father and realize you’re stuck within collapsing catacombs. While escaping, you come across the ability to astral project yourself and speak with the souls of the beyond. You must now use this newfound ability to discover the whereabouts of your father. That’s the premise of Night Light Interactive’s new […]

  • Monochroma Review: Colorless

    26 May 2014

    If you’ve never heard of Monochroma, it’s been pitched as Limbo meets Ico. To put that in more descriptive terms, it’s a side-scrolling puzzle platformer that has you escorting your younger brother through a monochromatic world. The game has no dialogue, minimal controls, and plenty of puzzles as you discover the story.

  • Full Bore Review: Can You Dig It?

    18 May 2014

    At first glance Full Bore seems to be some sort of mash-up between Dig Dug and Braid, but digging deeper you find complex action based puzzles, heartwarming visuals and an overall understanding that this game knows what it wants to accomplish.

  • Chilie Review: It’s Spicy

    10 May 2014

    At a glance, this is one of the better looking games you’ll get a chance to play on your phone. As some of you know, I’m an animator and love to see the work of others – a unique art style is enough to warrant my interest in a movie or game. So when I […]

  • Stick It to the Man Review: The Spotless Mind

    03 May 2014

    Stick It to the Man is by no means a new title – it came out at the end of 2013 for PC, PS3, and PS Vita, and is now available on Wii U as well. However, here we are at the beginning of May, and the title is about to be free for PS […]

  • ibb and obb Review

    04 Aug 2013

    During our trip to E3 in 2011, Chris and I stumbled across a very clever platformer. As we made our way through the Indiecade, we kept coming back to this cooperative puzzle platformer known as ibb and obb. After E3 we continued to follow the progress of this game, and we even got the distinct […]

  • (R) God of War: Ascension (Single Player) (PS3)

    23 Apr 2013

    Back when God of War III came out, FFoP Ryan gave the game a raving review and a score of “Buy It”. By raving review, I of course refer to the definition of “Epic” posted from the dictionary. If I were to choose a word from the dictionary for this game though, it would be…

  • (R) Dear Esther (PC)

    03 Jun 2012

      Every so often a game comes along that just makes you stop and think. Only this title isn’t technically a game. More of a story disguised as a game.

  • (R) Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 (PS3)

    20 Dec 2011

    Another Lego game is upon us (or has been rather), which means another review from yours truly. I do apologize about the lateness of this review, but I’ve only just returned from my holiday in Tamriel. Hit the jump to see what I think about this game. I’m sure most of you know my verdict […]
