RIP Vine, died sucking its own dick

Twitter is shutting down Vine, the video-sharing app it paid $30 million for in October of 2012, just four months after Vine was founded. It was a good app, sometimes.   read

Review: Earth's Dawn

Take a pinch of Odin Sphere's art and gameplay, toss in some Monster Hunter loot-grinding, and repetition, and add a smidgen of Gears of War for flavor. Let simmer and serve both digitally and in retail to the select few who didn't just buy...   read

Review: King's Quest: The Good Knight

King's Quest has had a good run over the course of its five-episode spread. As an overlooked adventure series from the minds of developer The Odd Gentlemen, I think part of the reason it's been off so many radars is because the first c...   read

Review: Corpse Party

Yes, we're reviewing Corpse Party. We already did it back on the PSP. Not much has changed since then, but sometimes a game is so interesting and so unlike anything else on the market that it deserves a second look.   read

Review: Skylanders Imaginators

Just when I think they're out of ideas, they pull me back in. Skylanders has been one of the most consistent series Activision has been pumping out in recent years. I mean, it has no business clearing that goal in a way, as the entire ...   read

Review: Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~

When Cing closed its doors in 2010, it was pretty devastating. It was a great developer, using Nintendo's gimmicks without distracting the player from well-written, heartfelt stories. Its best work will always be the Kyle Hyde mysteries - H...   read

Review: Yomawari: Night Alone

There is only one proper way to play a horror video game, just as there is only one proper way to watch a horror movie: with the lights off. In order for horror to work, you have to invest yourself in it. You have allow yourself to be scare...   read

Review: DoDonPachi Resurrection

I've talked in the past about game preservation, and I can't stress enough how important it is. While many pine for "the old days," and are somewhat blinded by impartial nostalgia, there are a lot of incredible works in our past that need t...   read

Maize's chatty corn and Russian teddy bear left me wanting more

Cornfields are an underrated pick for places that have the potential for bad and/or otherwise weird shit to happen. Sure, they aren't as ubiquitously ominous as abandoned hospitals or decrepit mansions, but cornfields have a long history of...   read

Review: Here They Lie

The VR space is already rife with jump-scare games. And how easy is it to jump with a helmet on your head when creepy house sounds blend together with the illusion put forth by something intended to frighten you? Very. Here They Lie at...   read

Review: Super Mario Adventures

In 1992, I was three years old. Apparently, some of you old farts were reading Nintendo Power at that time and were treated to installments of Super Mario Adventures. The magazine ran a chapter of the story each month of the year, and now t...   read

Review: Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary Edition World Tour

I'd be hard pressed to find a game I have more history with than Duke Nukem 3D. Although there had been several projects before it that so heartily embraced the mod community, it was the first time I had really connected with that scene. I ...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider's VR mode is great for fans, okay for everyone else

Gears of War 4, Dishonored 2, and Hamilton (for some reason)

Look, I didn't want this episode to be about the smash hit Broadway musical Hamilton. I thought it would be a fun thing to briefly mention it as a show with good lyrics and an interesting premise. You can probably guess which of the core Po...   read
