Title
September 26, 2015

Hello dear readers! Sometimes I look at a game and think “Wow, no thanks.”  It’s crude, judgmental, and a frequent part of my game picking regimen.  Every once in a while, though, the universe decides to toss me a cupcake with “Suck It Up” scrawled across it, and this review is about just that.  A couple of weeks ago, I was told to review Cute Things Dying Violently, and my…

Pokemon Shuffle is Still Evil

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…

Do you think the current state of free to play gaming reflects the average gamers’ idea of what video games should be? Continually I find myself let down trying to find the right free to play game. These so called “video games” operate under the guise of a fulfilling game just one more micro-purchase away. Instead, they offer unbalanced game play structured so that those who pay more have a…
