Black Mesa: The Half-Life Port We’ve All Craved

September 21, 2015

  I open the two large, red doors and take a breath, knowing that I, low on health, will certainly die if I enter here. I walk down the the dark, damp corridor. My heart is pounding, chest heaving, brain throbbing as I stalk the hallway, waiting for anything to go– BZZT-BZZT-BZZT! Three Vortigaunts appear out of nowhere, shooting me with their green spheres of doom. Moving right, I dodge…

Bang! The Dice Game: Bang Bang, You’re Dead

September 18, 2015

  One of the first college classes I took centered on the study of Westerns in film. The Searchers, Shane, and High Noon filled up the screen and … I fell asleep during most of them. It wasn’t that those movies are boring; on the contrary, those movies are really great. I was just so tired from PARTYING SO HARD, BRO. Those days are behind me, but now I’ve found…

September 15, 2015

Stray Cat Crossing is best described as an adventure-horror, indie game, made by developers Jurlo and Jetpackgone. According to their website, they were inspired by other adventure type RPGs such as The Witches House and Ib.

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…
