E3 Bethesda showcase did NOT answer the most important Fallout 4 questions.

Sure, the showcase told us a lot. Fallout 4 is in a lot of ways a completely different game from 3 and NV. The wasteland is wide and varied, the crafting has been completely overhauled to create a hopefully satisfying and robust experience, and I personally will have a chance to build my own post-apocalyptic… Read More »

A slightly unhinged letter to Bethesda, regarding Fallout 4

Here are some random thoughts, theories, desires and wishes relating to Fallout 4, in no particular order. OK, we get a dog right? The video shows a dog. If I don’t actually get a dog in game I will be sad. Do we actually get to visit that house in the announcement video? It looks… Read More »

PAX East 2014 | Organic Panic

Organic Panic is a  puzzle-platformer about a Protein vs Produce apocalypse. Technically the protein (Meats and Cheeses) have already won and the Produce are living in fear while they’re hunted for sport. LastLimb, created by brother David and Anatole Branch, funded Organic Panic through a kickstarter campaign and got greenlit on Steam Greenlight. Obviously this game… Read More »

PAX East 2014 | Borderlands the Pre-Sequel

Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2 (see how it’s both a prequel and sequel?) and takes place on the moon of Pandora. (Because 2K Australia was behind getting this game out, everyone on the moon is Australian.) I died a little when I heard there would be another Borderlands game AND it would be staring Claptrap! Well, Claptrap… Read More »

First Impressions: MARS: War Logs

MARS: War Logs is set in the war-torn, waterless future of Mars. Surprise, you colonized Mars and its supply of one gallon of water didn’t last to sustain a whole planet full of people.

The Maw is the Most Adorable Apocalypse Ever

Most apocalyptic video games are bleak and depressing. They’re set during a time where things are going or went horribly wrong. Twisted Pixel managed to take those aspects, cover them is pink frosting and sunshine, tie it up in a bow and deliver The Maw. A similar yet very different kind of game about the… Read More »

Math Apocalypse is every student’s worst nightmare

If the only way to save the world is for me to do basic math, we’re all going to die. Math Apocalypse is an Android app game that tasks you with the tremendous pressure of solving math problems to defeat aliens invading earth. Seems pretty straight forward and totally plausible to me. Aliens walk in… Read More »

Beautiful Borderlands 2 Makeup Tutorial by MadeULook

Borderlands 2  was one of my favorite games. It still is. Every aspect of it was awesome, from local co-op to single-player to the story to the dialogue to the art. So much squee. I’ve always said that art can make or break a good story in comics, film, or video games. Borderlands 2 was beautiful.… Read More »

Why Didn’t I play Crackdown 2 years ago!?

Crackdown 2 came out in July 2010 from Ruffian Games and Microsoft Game Studios and I never bought it. I played Crackdown and enjoyed it but didn’t feel a second game would offer me much more. Recently, I started to feel there was nothing new I wanted to buy or replay. So, while visiting a… Read More »

Dying Light gameplay walkthrough

Dying Light is post-apocalyptic video game with zombies by Techland and Warner Bros.. It’s slated for release in 2014 on most major platforms and it’s looking pretty good if I do say so my self. However, it also looks a lot like Dead Island but not on a tropical island. There’s even a guy at… Read More »

Gods vs Humans is… an interesting mobile game?

So I get the objective of Gods vs Humans but it just doesn’t feel fair or clear as soon as I started playing. I want to destroy the tower but no hurt the people because I need them to worship me so I can have the power to destroy their tower… Le Sigh. Here’s how… Read More »

Hellraid is a lot like other games… Not sure if that’s good yet.

Hellraid sounds kind of like Hungry, Hungry Hippos at the end of the world… kind of. If the marbles were enemies and trying to kill you as well as points. Also, your fellow hippos had malicious intentions when it comes to your survival… Techland has formally announced Hellraid, a first-person co-op slasher that offers two games in one:… Read More »

The Evil Within might be hell on Earth or maybe just a dream…

Survival Horror is an exciting genre that makes me feel like a kitten wandering through a zoo with faulty locks. The Evil Within from Bethesda Softworks and Tango Gameworks will be no different. With a release scheduled for mid-late 2014 The Evil Within plans to keep that feeling alive and terrifying. The game features the… Read More »
