Review: Signs of the Sojourner

Sometimes a video game comes along and is touted as the "[genre game] for people who hate [genre]." I think Signs of the Sojourner wants to be that game for deckbuilders. As someone who has been lukewarm on the genre as a whole, the id...

(Updated link) I never posted this, but here is the Ludum Dare entry my friend and I made a few weekends ago! It's called Ducky's Day Out and it's kind of like Lemmings: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/46/duckys-day-out


 
 
 

My friends and I are discussing our thoughts on Disco Elysium, if you wanna come listen here's the link! SPOILERS WILL BE TALKED ABOUT!! https://www.twitch.tv/senatorsweeps

 
 
 

Anyone else participating in Ludum Dare this weekend?? A buddy and I are going in for our second time!


 
 
 

After finishing both Outer Wilds and Half-Life: Alyx in the same week, I feel like I need a smoke. Both games are masterpieces in their own right, and I think Valve, at the top of their game, is unmatched. I can't see anything topping Alyx as my GOTY.

 
 
 
 

I get to teach from home for at least two weeks! So naturally, I'm going to use Twitch. What games should I stream to my students? Obviously anything M rated is out...

 
 
 

Has anyone made the joke yet that the emo boi Pokemon evolves into a Pokemon with a gun? No? Okay...

 
 
 

I feel obligated to tell people here that I now own Rainbow Six: Siege...

 
 
 

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...
