Neverending Nightmares - Now Bloody Playing

Oh look, it's Neverending Nightmares, that creepy looking adventure game Jonathan talked about the other day. It's only got a few hours left on its Kickstarter, and this video probably won't help it. We can only cross our fingers! Anyway, I played the demo. You can watch me play it, if you want.    more

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is funny, gloriously shameless, and solid in the action department. It is also, unfortunately, kind of broken in unforgivable ways, and if you get caught in its terrible traps, you could ruin your entire game.  I wish I could just be showing off how much fun this game is. I can't though. Now I'm sad in my face.    more

Review: Alien Rage

I didn't get very far into Alien Rage, I'm going to admit that right off the bat. It was not, however, for the want of trying. There are parts in Alien Rage where the game decides that working properly is for losers, so it do...   more

Rhymedown Spectacular: Press X

This week, Yahtzee details that growing videogame tradition, the need to press "X" in order to do anything and everything. Meanwhile, your buddy Jim Sterling pays tribute to one of the finest actors ever born, Dean "Once Was Superman For A Bit" Cain.  Oh, Dean Cain. You're so beautiful.   more

Alien Rage - Now Bloody Playing

In today's little carnival of misery, I try to contain my internal juices as I play Motion Sickness: The Game and fire my squirty gun at the Genericons. Yeah, Alien Rage isn't very good.  A full review is coming later today, where I further eviscerate this complete waste of time and money.   more

Race The Sun - Now Bloody Playing

People have been buzzing about Race The Sun lately, and so I decided to check it out for your sensual enjoyment. I'm not very good at it, but I'm having a laugh with it, and that's what matters. At the end of the day, that's what bloody matters.  So yeah, watch this video if you like! Oh, and Race The Sun can be voted for on its Greenlight page right here.   more

Jimquisition: To Play The Villain

Some gamers are skipping Grand Theft Auto V, unwilling to play the role of a thief, a gangbanger, or a psychopath. While others may shy away from being the villain, Jim Sterling actively revels in it. Indeed, to play the villain can not only be fun, it can be downright fascinating.   more

Outlast - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 5

Your good pal Jim Sterling returns to Mount Massive Asylum for another descent into madness. This time, we see yet more naked butts, faff about with three fuses, get chased by the big'un again, and have an encounter with a pair of old, nude, friends.  There. You got another Outlast video. Satisfied? Satisfied, now that you got, finally, your cheesy balls?    more

Doorways - Now Bloody Playing

Discovered a new horror game on Steam last night, so I decided to record myself playing it for your ridiculous entertainment. It's called Doorways, it bills itself as a survival horror game, but it kind of isn't. It's interesting, though! Why not watch the video and see if you, too, find it interesting? Maybe you don't. That's okay too.   more

Shelter - Now Bloody Playing

Time for some more stupid gameplay video stupidity for you to swallow into your gawking eyes. Why not watch me play Shelter for a minute? I'm going to wander around and drop onion things in front of little baby badgers.  Well then, that's fun isn't it? Yes. That's fun.   more

Delver - Now Bloody Playing

Today I am playing Delver, a roguelike-esque first-person adventure recommended to me after I played Paranautical Activity. For those of you who weren't so hot on that latter game, methinks this one is far more your speed.  We will have more Outlast for you this week, that much is certain, I just felt like trying new things. I may give Shelter a go next. Then it's back to the scarytimes!   more
