[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 […]

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 […]

A few months ago, my friend and local gamestore owner handed me a demo pack of a game he received called Iconica. Knowing I was a game designer, he wanted to know what I thought, because the designer of Iconica lives in the same city as I. I read through the rules and examined the […]

Let’s review: 1991 – Final Fantasy IV is released in the USA as Final Fantasy II. I was 7 years old. Sometime around 1995 or so I finally get my hands on this game and play the hell out of it…to the end. Circa 1996 – Emulation rises in popularity. I learn that I can […]

[Review] Fallout: New Vegas

November 16th, 2010

…is awesome. Go play it. Have a great week! Okay okay okay, I guess I need to do a little more than that, don’t I? If you haven’t been told yet (in which case, your friends are jerks) Fallout: New Vegas is the latest installment in the Fallout franchise; think of it as an aside […]

[Retro Review] Crystalis

June 28th, 2010

When I was but a wee lad, sometime in the early 90’s there was a new store that opened up in my hometown called Phar-Mor. It was not unlike your average Walgreens or CVS; a pharmacy with some essential grocery type goods. But Phar-Mor was something special. They had Nintendo rentals for 39 cents a […]

It isn’t often that I even want to make two consecutive posts about the same game, and it is even rarer that I actually do it. In fact, this may be the first–as far as I can recall. That said, I have been playing a lot more of Borderlands and since my last post was […]

A friend of mine told me told me via Twitter about this newfangled game called Borderlands that he’d been playing. He described it as “exactly what I expected from a game billed as first person Diablo. Loot, quests, and co-op play.” And, having grown up with this person and knowing that we grew up with […]

Review: Retro Game Challenge

March 16th, 2009

Imagine being a kid again in the 80’s, the golden era of NES/Famicom videogames. I remember it like it was yesterday. If you weren’t born yet in the 80’s, let me help you out, this is how everything went down: First you were kidnapped by an an evil Japanese man who digitizes himself and crowns […]

Opinions about Final Fantasy VII have floated from “Best RPG ever made” to “Worst RPG ever made” and everywhere in between. Despite my personal opinions about the game itself, I can’t deny that Yoshinori Kitase wrote a compelling story full of genuine emotion and set the stage for something much larger than just a game.
