ECHO Review | Voices of Eternity

“Ugh, Jc, aren't you supposed to review some single-A games that we have never heard of?” Shut up, I finished Echo yesterday, I have to capitalize on that! Especially when it tricked me into playing a stealth-puzzle game. T...

 
 
 

I Am Mad About Future Imperial Guard Codex

Back in June, Warhammer 40K finally received the 8th edition of its ruleset. A new edition means new army lists – or Codexes by Hams parlance. And while there are chances that orks are going to get shafted again and not receive a...

 
 
 

Distrust Review | Eating Uncooked Ramen Noodles

One of the biggest themes in John Carpenter's The Thing – and the much inferior game that followed it – is mistrust. Who can you rely on when any of your colleagues might be infected and taken over by alien body horrors? So...

 
 
 

Starsector Preview | My God, it's full of assholes!

While space is 3D, it doesn't mean that we can't have great 2D games about flying through the black void and shooting whoever we meet along way. And as far as space exploration and maraudery games go, Starsector can hardly be beat. It'...

 
 
 

Did we learn from Dawn of War and Company of Heroes?

Dawn of War III was announced with one of the coolest cinematic trailers of the recent years. Unfortunately, the game itself turned out to be a sack of tumorous growths, lurching blindly on its misshapen legs of Starcraft and MOBA elem...

 
 
 
 

Beholder Review | Peeping Tom The Patriot

“Papers, Please” carved out a small niche for games; I guess you could call them “totalitarianism simulators,” only instead of being the dictator, you're one of the regular people on the ground level who have to...

 
 
 

Games I Played In October: A Brief Overview

Guess who got laid off in October? THIS GUY! Among other things, it gave me time to paint Space Marines and play video games.  Come to think of it, there were no "other things", as playing video games and bitching about minia...

 
 
 
 
 

Heart and Slash Review | Robots Upon Robots

In the future, there will be robots. Clumsy, boxy robots. Some will actually have monitors instead of faces. Others will be simple flying rigs carrying optical sensors and a gun. The future is kinda silly, you see. That's why you ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

System Shock Reboot | I Am Hype

Yes, I am so hyped about the upcoming reboot, I'm dropping letters from words. And I'm not the hype-getting kind. I simply have been writing about videogames for far too long to have such things as "hopes" and "expectations". The only ...

 
 
 
 

Planar Conquest Review | No Fun For Anyone

4X fantasy genre is not that barren when you think about it. You have your solid, old school leaders in Age of Wonders and Heroes of Might and Magic. You have Baby's First 4X with the Warlock series. If you want something different, yo...

 
 
 
 

Steamworld Heist Review | Steam, Space, Guns

I have had dreams of being a big, scary cyborg, but never about being a robot. And I have definitely never wanted to be a steam-driven android that's plundering spaceships near the cracked remains of planet Earth. However, this is...

 
 
 
 

Nuclear Bombs Are Lame And Space Marines Rule The Day

A long, long time ago, certain internet people independently made certain claims about a trope that oft appears in comic books and videogames. They said that super soldier programs are stupid, because super soldiers are made obsolete b...

 
 
 

Wargame: Red Dragon review | Best Korean Navy

The Cold War going hot would have reduced the world to so much irradiated ash in about three days or so, and we're extremely happy that it didn't happen. However, it left a lot people who are interested in military history fighting ove...

 
 
 

3D Modeling Dingoes Ate My Baby

What kept me up at night, that long Japanese night a year ago? Why, those were the visions, the visions of a wonderful 3D printed future. My 3D printed future, to be precise. Way back then, Battlefront, the designers of the most popula...

 
 
 

Modding Warlock 2 And Why It's Fun Not To Do It

The more you talk about the project, the bigger the chances that you're not actually going to do it, because talking about it already feels like working on it. I think that's how the reasoning goes as far as to explain why all the...

Shitposter-senpai has noticed you!

I don't like long walks on the beach, but I'm partial to bicycles, beers, sci-fi and action movies, historical, sci-fi and fantasy literature, cats, my little lady and writing (shitposting).
