Is Subnautica Worth The Hype?

“Approaching crush depth, please return to the surface ASAP” I hear my pda tell me. Despite its rather pertinent warning (Dying by being crushed is NOT a fate I am particuarly fond of), I am so close to my objective I have no intention of doing so. To prevent the destruction of my seamoth (a mini-submersible), I exit the submarine and immediately begin surveying the area. From the events of…


Things I Look Forward to in KSP 1.1

After a years wait, Squad is at last delivering on their promise of a KSP build using the Unity V engine. As part of that upgrade, Squad had to redesign their User Interface (UI) and rebuild many of the critical systems (such as the physics engine PhysX) from scratch. Thanks to all their time and hard work, the KSP 1.1 update will come with many changes for the better. Besides…


Amiibos Big and Small

Dear readers, I, like a few of you, collect Amiibos. They’re DLC that don’t feel like a complete ripoff, are well made, and have taken over my home. Storage has become my latest puzzle, but I didn’t have all the pieces before making a decision on a system. I couldn’t find any reliable information on the size of the toys themselves. The base is standard, sure, and Bowser is the…

Nightmare Forest: Dead Run

Kickstarter Review – Nightmare Forest: Dead Run

From the moment I got a review copy of Nightmare Forest: Dead Run in the mail, I was impressed. While it wasn’t the final copy, the cards in the game were printed professionally, the custom dice and counters looked amazing, and the manual was well-printed. I didn’t stop being impressed for the whole time I played it. I’m a big fan of “medium-light” board games, with games like guillatine and…


RNDMMeow’s Best of 2015

Hello dear readers!  I’m late to the party, but I’m almost always late for everything anyway.  Woo, me.  I’m doing my top 5 games from 2015!  Since this is my list, these are my rules: The game came out in 2015 and I loved it Or An iteration or expansion came out in 2015 and I still love it.

Kickstarter Interviews: Juul Arthur Ribe Rudihagen of Magination

Here at GFTN, we like to interview Kickstarter creators about their game and their game design process. I had the opportunity to interview Juul Arthur Ribe Rudihagen, CTO of Magination, a new game being funded on Kickstarter. What inspired you to create this game? The idea behind Magination started three years ago with Tobias playing with some coin magnets he got from an online store. Fascinated by the way they…


Full Time Job / Part Time Stream

It takes time and effort to form a stream that could be one day professional. So what does one do in the mean time? Well, if you are anything like Kieran, you work a full-time job by day, and try to give the best stream you can by night. Today on Behind the Streams, I’m chatting with Kieran, also known as KierzOfWar on Twitch.tv.   Full Time Job, Part Time Stream…


The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is Wonderful

Hello fair readers!  Sometimes life gives me an awesome gift.  Then, life kicks me in the face with shoes covered in the cold virus and runs away cackling.  Life is kind of a jerk.  However, thanks to said illness, I played an obscene amount of my favorite game, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and its newest expansion, Afterbirth. If you’ve played the first game, you know just how fun and…


Sword Coast Legends: Not My Bag of Dice

Hello again, fair readers!  A couple of years ago, I tried my hand at tabletop gaming for the first time.  Owen has a friend who is passionate about playing RPGs and had a game going with a couple of coworkers.  I was eventually sucked in despite my lack of experience.  Instead of paper and pencil, the sessions were run with laptops on a LAN, and had its perks and drawbacks. …
