Another gift from my student! I saw her drawing Klonoa so I told her about some lesser-known mascots. Later that day I found an amazing Cool Spot on my desk!!!


 
 
 
 

Just got my stats midterm score -- 99%! I couldn't have done it without my (allowed) cheat sheet. Not the info on it, but the picture. I asked a student of mine to draw me an inspirational image in the corner and told her to "get creative." SO AMAZING!!!

Review: Greedfall

I've never played a Spiders game before. People always say they're "rough around the edges" or use the term "Euro-jank" to describe them. These games tend to fulfill that B-level game that seems to be so elusive these days (outside of Japan...

Review: Blair Witch

I have a special place in my heart for the Blair Witch films. Well, the first two at least. I completely forgot there was a third from 2016 and I've never seen it. But after completing the Blair Witch game, I've done a lot of thinking ...

Review in Progress: Greedfall

You know, I've never played a Spiders game. I've been interested in a couple, like Technomancer, but never got around to actually buying or playing them. They've mostly received lukewarm reviews with plenty of uses of the word "jank." Greed...

Review: Heave Ho

If you're like me, you're always looking to add more titles to the list of "local multiplayer games to bust out when friends come over." Heave Ho has our back.

Review: Dicey Dungeons

Terry Cavanagh has created three major releases now. The first was VVVVVV and it was incredible. Then, he followed it up with Super Hexagon and guess what -- it blew everyone away. With a team helping him this time around, is it all bu...

Review: The Blackout Club

I don't think I've ever wanted to love a game more than The Blackout Club. It's just...the game feels as if it's doing its best to push me away at every moment.

Review: The Council: Episode 5: Checkmate

For those who have not been following along on the community side of things, Destructoid user Soulbow has been consistently pestering me, for over a year now, to keep writing these reviews for The Council. I mean, this episode came out...

Indie games in cars getting emotional

Do you ever want to play games where you're just....driving? Soaking in the environment, having conversations, and listening to whatever pops on the radio? Well, I've got three games lined up based on that premise on this week's episode of ...

PC Port Report: Octopath Traveler

While Octopath Traveler may not be a perfect game by any means, it was an awesome addition to the JRPG genre. As with any game, it's always a bummer to see something released on a single system – console or PC. While I under...

Review: Void Bastards

Jonathan Chey, one of the brilliant minds responsible System Shock 2, is behind Void Bastards. That's a huge deal for many people, myself included. Someone with that sort of development mind created a first-person shooter roguelike? Co...

Children of Morta needs to release, like, yesterday

I had the lovely opportunity to play Children of Morta back in 2016, and holy cow I didn't realize it was that long ago. I also put it on my "Indies of 2017 to Look Forward To" list. 2017, heh. But now it's slated to release this year!...

Review: Mordhau

When I first saw Mordhau, I assumed it was the next game from the Chivalry developers. Nope! It was just a Kickstarted passion project that was inspired by the aforementioned hack and slash. Either way, it's got some great Chivalry&nbs...

Early Access Review: Risk of Rain 2

When Risk of Rain 2 was announced to be in 3D instead of 2D, I wasn't sure what to think. I loved that the developers were going in a new direction with the IP, but was worried it wouldn't quite have the same panache. I was so freaking...
