Review: Risk of Rain 2

When I first jumped into the Early Access phase of Risk of Rain 2, I enjoyed my time but naturally wanted more. I haven't revisited it since, and have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of content the game has in its 1.0 release. A rog...

Review: Lost Wing

I’m something of a cheerleader for rail shooters. I feel the sub-genre has still gone largely untapped, and that it’s a formula the indie market could really make work. Lost Wing is something like that. However, I’m also a...

Review: Merchant of the Skies

I’ve been a merchant of a lot of things. The Elite series allowed me to be a space trader, Euro Truck Simulator let me try my hand at terrestrial trade, and Wall Street Kid had me trading stocks directly. Now it’s time for Merc...

I don't know why I keep doing this to myself. I don't know why I keep doing this to you. I wish I could see something as massively stupid as Pee War and ignore it like everyone else on the internet. ...but I just can't. I can't sit here and...
