Is Subnautica Worth The Hype?

December 25, 2016

“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…

April 13, 2016

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…

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is Wonderful

Title
December 9, 2015

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

Title
December 9, 2015

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. …

Giana Sisters: Dream Runners Review

November 18, 2015

3…2…1! The race begins! I frantically try to find the controls, searching for the way to move forward while the others leave me in the dust. I find the controls to be awkward for me at first, having the movement keys be arrow keys instead of WASD. They (meaning easy AI players, as I could not find any real people online) left me so far behind that I died from…

November 9, 2015

Holy crap. That’s the words that are left coming out of my mouth after finishing this game, but I truly mean that in the best way possible. When I think of SOMA after playing I am constantly reminded why Fractional Games is so well known for their talent of making amazing horror games. While this game does not exactly focus too much on scares, just the ideas and concepts put…

Hello dear readers!  I had a fun time getting stuck in a rainstorm a few weeks ago, and decided to take shelter in an arcade instead of driving in the craziness.  Rain makes desert dwellers crazy, believe me.  While there, I saw the previously mention  Time Crisis 5, which was an absolute surprise.  I also found another wonderful surprise: Angry Birds Arcade. A few months ago, I heard news that…

What the- Time Crisis 5?

Title
October 11, 2015

Hello dear readers! I have had an interesting Amiibo hunting week.  I hope you guys found some of your much wanted unicorns these past few days.  I found a Captain Falcon, and I couldn’t be happier.  I also saw Marths, Charizards, Dark Pits, Foxes, Little Macs, and some lonely Olimars.  It was magical. Three days ago, though, I couldn’t find anything but a few neglected Luigis.  Rumors were flying around…

Euclidean: The Five Stages of Grief in 45 Minutes

euclidean
October 7, 2015

WARNING : this might start off sounding like a review for a really bad game. That would be because its really hard to talk about Euclidean without spoiling the whole thing; so instead of ranking this thing like a game I will describe what it did to me. I got home from class at 8:00 2 days ago with an email from my boss accompanied by an apologetic note and…
