Ironcast [Review]

Ironcast

It took me some time to come up with this review, which was to include a review video to bring new life to the YouTube channel. After a lot of screwing around, the website has finally gotten back on the game review horse with this look at Ironcast, a British indie game that looks like a classier alternative to HuniePop in a few ways (I may or may not review it). At first, I couldn’t keep gnawing at its faults, but I’ve since had so much fun with it that I had to bump its score up a bit. (more…)

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number [Impressions]

thumbnail_hotline-miami-2-wrong-number

It’s rare for me to await the release of a game right on day one; I’ve only done that for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm and Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- in recent years, as far as I can remember. This is one of the titles I was looking forward to this year because I love the first game, so I had to cover this game every step of the way. Therefore, here are my impressions of Hotline Miami 2 after playing it for around 3 hours or so. (more…)

Puzzle Forge 2 [Review]

Most of the games I ever play on mobile are either strategy or puzzle games in various forms. For the longest time, SpellTower was the only game on my phone, and I also liked Rymdkapsel. When I bought a new phone, it looked like I wasn’t installing a game on it anymore. But when I heard of Puzzle Forge 2 in a podcast, I had to try it out. From what I’ve seen, my time was certainly not wasted. (more…)

Serena [Review]

I’ve played a few adventure games before, with titles like Post Mortem ranking high on my personal list. There is also Indigo Prophecy that I liked at first, then grew to despise as I got to near the end of its story. Adventure games are all about the story, and this is a short and bittersweet one.

Flappy Bird (Mobile) [Review]

Take note that this is what made me learn that the written review MUST NOT wait for the video. I was making a video for this, with the voice-overs and footage already done, but the editing took longer than expected and kept getting hung up by happenings in daily life. I’ve posted this now, even though it’s a month late, since I didn’t want to waste the work put into writing this. Perhaps it’s also good that the fad has passed by so that the game can be assessed more objectively. (more…)

Damnation [Review]

It’s not often when I get myself to play singleplayer in FPS anymore, but this game came two years before the travesty that was Homefront. It only took me less than half an hour of gameplay to pass judgment on it, which may have been too quick. However, it really does deserve it, so I’m not sorry. (more…)

Rymdkapsel (Mobile) [Review]

This game had been out for the PS Vita for quite some time, but I waited for the release of the iOS and Android versions to play it with a touch screen. The simplistic visuals belies the deep gameplay that all mobile gamers should experience at least once. But then again, it’s not easy to play only once. (more…)

Ballistics [Review]

Perhaps one of the fastest games you’ll ever play, along with some other racing games, old school FPS titles, and maybe Sonic the Hedgehog, Ballistics is all about breaking the speed barrier in your PC. Unfortunately, not a lot of people know about this game. (more…)

Surgeon Simulator 2013 (Free) [Review]

This is a rather fun game that can get frustrating fast. It’s about testing your coordination, focus, and patience. Oh man, you better have patience in this game since it will make your hands itch and you screaming for vengeance. You then kill the patient by making him bleed out, and then you try again. (more…)

[FIRST LOOK] Path of Exile

Here’s Path of Exile, which has recently commenced its open beta phase. So far, it’s looking pretty good, and the feeling of wonderment is already beyond what I felt when I first played Diablo III. It’s one of those passion projects, and the players are responding with high expectations (more…)

The Typing of the Dead [Review]

Here’s a retro game review of what I feel is perhaps one of the best games I’ve ever played, especially since I type for a living. The Typing of the Dead is an unusual game for many, but I see it as a form of training and therapy that has helped me with both my occupation and my state of mind. Yes, it really does go that deep for me. Also included here is my first official review video. (more…)
