[Review] Shovel Knight

August 25th, 2014

This game. This freaking game… Shovel Knight is amazing. This game is what you get when you combine: The fantastic music and boss design of Mega Man The platforming challenge of Ninja Gaiden The artifact collection and combat of Zelda 2 The overworld features and map encounters of Super Mario Bros. 3 And the treasure-seeking […]

 I’m going to try something a little different today. That’s right, a tech review! As a gamer, I do enjoy many different gadgets as well (don’t worry there’s a tie-in to gaming for this anyhow) I got a Pebble Smart Watch last Christmas and I have been using it long enough to the point where […]

[Review] Rogue Legacy

September 30th, 2013

Rogue Legacy. Rogue freaking legacy. So, let me break this down, a 2D sidescrolling platformer roguelike action RPG with randomly-generated metroidvania castles and long-term upgrade progression of your skills, equipment, and character classes– of which you get to choose a new one each time you die. It’s a mouthful, and it’s amazing. I finally finished […]

So…Blizzard has been busy lately (they always are) but three major things have happened since I last mentioned them: 1) An expansion to Diablo 3 has finally been announced (thank goodness.) 2) The World of Warcraft TCG (formerly produced by Upper Deck, then by Cryptozoic) has been discontinued. and 3) Blizzard has debuted their own […]

  At GenCon this year, I had the pleasure of bumping into Michael Coe from Gamelyn Games to play the preview copy of his upcoming board game, Fantasy Frontier, designed by none other than Michael Coe himself, of Dungeon Heroes fame. Fantasy Frontier is a game of tile placement, worker placement, resource collection, and pattern recognition…all […]

The recently-shipped Kickstarter-success Castle Dice arrived on my doorstep not long ago, and I have been able to crack it open and play a couple of times so far and I wanted to review it as my primary fandom is of board games, so here goes! Castle Dice introduces a new kind of concept I […]

Greetings fellow gamers! I want to weigh in on two games that have been long overdue for a review, and I want to review them together because they share a similar theme, so let’s get right into it: EVOLAND Evoland began as an entry for LudumDare #24, and won. You can still play the original […]

[Fiction] Ready Player One

June 11th, 2013

 If you still haven’t seen or heard about it, Ready Player One is a novel by Ernest Cline. I just finished listening to the Audiobook which is read by none other than the legendary Wil Wheaton. And it was glorious. Here is a synopsis of the plot: The year is 2044 and the world is […]

Well, it happened. I fell off the wagon, thanks to my wife and her coworkers dragging me back kicking and screaming I’m back on World of Warcraft. The last time I played was in 2010 before we had our son Ethan. He’s almost 3 now and for some reason we thought it would be a […]

Final Fantasy Dimensions challenged the way I thought about mobile device purchases, and it did so before I even made the purchase. Even to the point where I might consider it a moral dilemma.  Let me explain: Final Fantasy Dimensions launched initially for iOS; the prologue chapter (about 1-2 hours of gameplay) was free, but […]
