Thumper in VR is scary and entrancing

Today I stopped by the PlayStation booth at PAX East to take a look at a rhythm-hell fever dream that I’ve much looked forward to: Thumper. You know your boy hopped directly into the opportunity to experience Drool’s nightmare r...   read

Look at all the fun we had at PAX Prime 2015!

Boy oh boy, we had a blast and a half at PAX Prime 2015. We played some games, saw old friends, and got very sick. Very, very sick. I am dying. Please send a gun with one bullet so I can escape this mucus hell of my own creation. Anyway, th...   read

Dragon Age: Inquisition's DLC epilogue is called Trespasser

I made a terrible Super Mario Maker level at PAX

Super Mario Maker is playable on the show floor at PAX, and it turns out Nintendo is giving players a rather generous amount of hands-on time with the game. If you're patient and don't have anything else to do (also if you're insa...   read

Fart on everyone and run away with Gassy Mob

Fart. Toot. Fluff. Pass gas. Flatulate. However polite you want to be while describing gas escaping from a butthole, it's still a pretty impolite thing to do in public. Impolite and funny (to me). Like this classic gem: Why do farts smell?...   read

RIVE was my favorite twin-stick shooter at PAX East

Anti-dads, claymores, and hotdogs in Dad by the Sword

Put your one true love back together in A.N.N.E

As someone who never got into non-linear Castlevania games and had never finished a Metroid, I've recently been really turned on by metroidvania games. Aroused, even. A.N.N.E takes the genre a step further and mixes it with a spa...   read
