Pokemon Shuffle is Still Evil

Title
September 11, 2015

Pokémon Shuffle, now with more cash grabs!  Just what we always wanted! Hello, fair readers!  A while ago, I did a review on Pokémon Shuffle for the 3DS.  Nintendo’s foray into Freemium Land felt more like utter betrayal.  It was an abuse of the audience’s nostalgia (a very common practice) with a free-to-play model that wielded the demand for money like a fine whip.  It was horrible, manipulative, and I…

August 30, 2015

In a stunning and ballsy announcement today, ArenaNet has decided to release their game Guild Wars 2 for all to play for free.  It sounds like they are banking on their new expansion, Heart of Thorns, to be enticing enough for players to open their wallets. Don’t get too excited, spammers, and don’t get very nervous, veterans.  It sounds like ArenaNet has put a lot of thought into this action…

Nintendo’s Coming for Your Wallet

Title
August 24, 2015

If you’re a fan of Nintendo, you might have had to change your pants earlier today.  Nintendo released a handy little graphic explaining some of their key game releases from now until the holiday season.  Part of me screams with excitement, part of me sulks because I’m probably going to stand outside for hours with strangers for blobs of plastic.  Such is the life of this crazed video game collector…

Courier of the Crypts – Cursed Crustacean Cousins!

Title
August 22, 2015

Hello, fair readers, and happy Saturday!  I have been playing an interesting little indie game, and battling with my new kitten, Saxton.  Both are tests of my patience, and I’ll explain why in a moment. *A bit of a disclosure first.  I was given a copy of this game by the developer for review.  This is no way affects my opinion of the game.  I will be just as much…

Angry Birds 2! Yay?

Title
August 3, 2015

Hello, fair readers, and apologies for being late!  I’ve been a little conflicted about how to write this.  Rovio has released a sequel to its 2009 smash hit, Angry Birds.  Thirteen (13!) spinoffs, license collaborations, and repackaged iterations later, Angry Birds 2 has finally come out, and it’s wonderful.  It’s like being handed a tray of delicious cookies. The Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie Rovio has really made a wonderful, solid…

Pigeon Lovin’! – Hatoful Boyfriend

Title
July 25, 2015

On a whim, and a sale, I bought Hatoful Boyfriend during the Steam Sale. I have played dating sims in the past, and had low expectations for one with such a strange premise. Seduce birds for you entertainment! It seemed shallow from the start, banking solely on the hopes of weird for sales. Hell, though, why not? Who am I to judge? I started up the game and immediately noticed…

Good evening, dear readers, and a happy weekend to all!  To our United States readers, happy 4th of July!  To our non-US readers, happy Saturday!  Both are worth celebrating, and why not celebrate with games?  Something that’s really caught my attention lately is Bethesda’s latest game, Fallout Shelter. In Fallout Shelter, you play as the Overseer of your own vault. You welcome people from the wastelands looking for shelter and…

Arcade Weirdness – Dizzy Chicken

Title
June 21, 2015

I have always had a passion for arcade games. Fancy fighting games, flamboyant rhythm games, gimmicky ticket games, they are all my loves. There’s a great energy that’s hard to beat when you’re surrounded by bright lights, happy noises, and excited people of all ages. Unfortunately, when my old home lost its last large arcade, the established community faded and interest was dead. The only thing remaining was a couple…
