Nintendo Wins the Kawaii War

I've been spending some quality time with my 2DS lately and there's something that I really like about it. I feels like a Nintendo console, with that distinct fun feel to it. It's a toy-like game system, but not toy-like enough to be a ga...

Review: The PS4

So everyone is raving about Polygon's PS4 review and how beautiful it is. I saw it, however, and though "Big whoop! I can do that better AND make it more beautiful!" The only problem is that I haven't actually played a PlayStation 4 or to...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Review: Madden (some kind of number)

So a bunch of people have asked me to review another game I have never played, so I decided to go with a game that everyone tells me is popular (I've never heard of it) Madden.  I went to YouTube today to watch some gameplay videos, and ...

Evil: Make Me Want It

So I finished the first episode of The Wolf Among Us today, and I was very impressed. Not only did it make me feel bad for David Cage, it also made me question myself a lot. I went into the game thinking I was going to play the nice guy ...

 
 
 
 

Holy Shit I Made a Game! (kind of)

With my mind delirious from overwork and too little sleep, but unable to relax because I pumped it so full of caffeine and sugar, I decided to give this "Twine" program a spin and make my own "choose-your-own-adventure" type game. So, afte...

 
 
 
 

The 7 Most Disturbing Moments in "Harvester"

By the time the 90s came around, people weren't so big on the suburbs any more. We had movies like "The Stepford Wives," "Blue Velvet," "Terrorvision," and "The People Under the Stairs" portray the suburbs in a less than stellar light. In...

Froggy Review: Tetrobot and Co.

At first glance, Tetrobot and Co. appears to be an adventure game with charming industrial vibe, similar to Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey, but under the surface it's purely a puzzle game, which isn't a bad thing. In Tetrobot and Co., you're ...

Have a Bad Day

I my last post I discussed what I called "un-games." Games that used minimal gameplay to convey a story or theme. In the case of one of the first un-games, it was used to present artwork and music. That game is Bad Day on the Midway. From...

About Benny Discoone of us since 9:53 AM on 03.24.2013

My name is Benny. I work full time in a freak show eating live chickens, and I work part time as Brendan Fraser's scrotum cleanser.

I play video games sometimes, but most of the time I'm too poor and don't have enough free time. I still like talking about them though.
