Review: Dandara

Dandara is a metroidvania with a unique method of movement. It may not set the world on fire, but it certainly has an audience. The story revolves around a woman named Dandara who must fight some evil guys because they’re being jerks....

 
 
 
 

Look, I know y'all already know I like Celeste, but some of the fanart for it is amazing. I've been listening to the soundtrack religiously for the past week as well. Even outside of the game, it still stands out as fucking incredible.

Darkest Dungeon attempted to crush my soul on the Switch

I got a chance to get my grubby little hands on the newest port of Darkest Dungeon for the Switch. The game is here in all of its unforgiving glory. It throws some text at you during the opening scenes, teaching you the basics of survi...

 
 
 

If you guys wanted to see me jerk off, all you had to do was ask. That's what we're talking about, right?

 
 
 

You people must realize that this is all a ruse, so Wes can finally have more followers than me. I hope you're happy. I will never hear the end of this....

Review: Celeste

If you’re even remotely interested in this game, this review is a huge waste of your time. It’s good. It’s very fucking good. You should just go ahead and buy it. Celeste is one of those rare games where I knew it was spec...

 
 
 

Lawman helped me setup my Steam Community profile yesterday, and then he sneak attack gifted me Iconoclasts!!!! I AM SO FREAKING HYPE!!! About to start it up tonight and see what all the fuss is about! (Seriously, thank you so fucking much, Law....)

The evolution of Super Meat Boy Forever

I had the chance to speak with Tommy Refenes, one of the co-founders of Team Meat, and he gave me a much clearer understanding of just how much Super Meat Boy Forever has changed over the years.  As an adamant fan of the original title...

 
 
 

I don't typically get down with tournament fighters, but the Dragon Ball FighterZ beta was pretty damn cool! I really like how all the characters are chibi-ed out in the lobby too.

An easy way to find a box of Super Mario Cereal

The Super Mario Cereal, complete with amiibo functionality, released on December 11, 2017. However, until today, I hadn’t actually seen a single box on store shelves, despite searching obsessively. Sure, it’s kind of a dumb, poi...

 
 
 

I GOT A SNES CLASSIC AND MARIO CEREAL!!!! (Tip for finding Mario cereal in comments!)


 
 
 

Someone made a ROM hack of Super Mario World that has Cappy! Haven't played it yet, but it looks pretty damn great!

Kevin Mersereau's Top Five Games of 2017

It’s officially the year 2018 and not a whole lot has changed so far. I’m still a bald, broke, and excessively sweaty college student with an unhealthy obsession for video games. Luckily, that means I actually took the time to p...

 
 
 

I stare in horror as Shimoneta successfully consumes my every thought. It's better than I ever could have prepared myself for. This is love... It's fucking beautiful.

Review: Floor Kids

There’s nothing else out there quite like this game. Floor Kids attempts to meld the free-flowing body squirming of breakdancing with the much-loved rhythm genre, succeeding surprisingly well. It’s a project created by an artist...

 
 
 

Swamp Dogg is one of the greatest funk/soul musicians to ever hit planet Earth. This album was recorded at Muscle Shoals back when that still meant something. The whole album is a goddamn psychedelic masterpiece.



 
 
 

My secret santa, Lewness, got me Shovel Knight on the Switch!!! Fuck yeah!!!! Merry Christmas everyone!


 
 
 

If you like old school funky love songs, this is one of the best there is. It recently appeared on Purple Snow, a tribute to Prince and the local scene he helped foster in Minneapolis before he made it big. Basically, it's super fucking dope.

Enter the Gungeon and the Switch are a match made in heaven

When I first experienced Enter the Gungeon on the PS4, I couldn’t help but think of how great the game would play on a portable system. Today, that dream finally comes true, and it’s everything I could have hoped for. While it d...

 
 
 

You people have piqued my interest. I'm going to attempt to write a review of Doki Doki Literature Club for the site....


 
 
 

Anybody else playing the new Zelda DLC? I love the new horse armor [insert Oblivion DLC joke here], but I'm a bit disappointed with the actual story content as of the first few missions. Still great to have an excuse to revisit Hyrule though!

Review: Wuppo

The story of Wuppo revolves around a little, ball-shaped creature known as a Wum who gets kicked out of their home after making a huge mess while eating some ice cream. There’s a bit of lore drip fed through collectible film strips, b...

 
 
 

Huge shoutout to Mix for the new avatar! It's beginning to look a lot like motherfucking Christmas!


 
 
 

Would anyone be willing to Christmas up my avatar? My photoshop skills are failing me miserably haha...
