Balrog's got punches like a truck, truck, truck

Well, this is surprising. I find myself playing Balrog a lot in Street Fighter V. I generally judge how well I'll perform by how efficient I can do their trials. I ended up doing terribly at Balrog's trials, but have had really good su...   read

Review: Tumblestone

I can't think of the last puzzle game that had a color/shape-matching mechanic that I've genuinely enjoyed. It might be none of them, actually. I just never felt satisfied after completing a puzzle. I'm more of a candy eater than a candy cr...   read

Review: Quadrilateral Cowboy

Well, it's finally here. After playing through the brief-yet-amazing Gravity Bone and Thirty Flights of Loving, the third game has arrived. Don't be fooled, though -- Quadrilateral Cowboy stands alone in what it accomplishes. Not only ...   read

Ibuki is no longer the character I fell in love with, but that's okay

Ibuki was one of the handful of characters I dabbled in while playing Street Fighter IV. The others were Hakan (my main), T. Hawk, Dan, Seth, and Makoto. Once I found out that Ibuki's neckbreaker slide was a lot like Hakan's belly slide, I ...   read

Brilliantly original puzzle game Tumblestone out now

I first played Tumblestone at last year's PAX East and was completely blown away. Ty Taylor's first game, The Bridge, is one of my favorite puzzle-platformers ever, so I expected good things from this next venture. I said it last year and I...   read

Review: Monster Hunter Generations

It occurred to me while writing this review that Monster Hunter is my Dark Souls. Yes yes, Monster Hunter predates the Souls games by quite some time, but that doesn't change the accuracy of the statement itself. People obses...   read

Review: Dark Fear

I am probably a horror game maker's favorite sort of person. I scare very easily when it comes to video games. Movies, not so much, but video games, man, they get me. Like, was Resident Evil 4 supposed to be super scary or is that...   read

PC Port Report: Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma

I'll admit, it feels a bit like heresy playing Zero Time Dilemma on a PC, especially considering, well, 999. I won't go into it any more than that for people who haven't played through the first game. I bought the original on a whim (o...   read

Review: Forced Showdown

Forced Showdown is a game that combines card collecting, deck building, enemy killing, and hero abilities all into one neat package. The problem with throwing so many ingredients together is that there are so many cliches associated wi...   read

Warframe is adding a Quidditch-looking sports mode

I don't know anything about Warframe, other than people really like it. I've been meaning to try it one day, but that day has yet to come. It's free-to-play nature, which is evidently not too intrusive, has garnered a rather big following a...   read

Mages of Mystralia allows you to create your own magic spells

The trailer for the upcoming Mages of Mystralia has made me a follower of the game. It's got a cute art style and a very promising premise. Players will be able to craft their own spells to solve problems and fight enemies in the world...   read
