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. According to the Purple Prose introduction narrated by the most pathetic grunt in the Water War, there’s a war on and […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

What if you worked at Death Inc. and it was your job to start the apocalypse?

The first thing I thought of when I saw Ambient Studios announce Death Inc. a PC (and MAC) game coming out this summer was that is reminds me of Black & White (Lionhead Studios). No, I do not think it looks like a knock off. I think it embodies the same brilliance and unique balance that makes the player not […]

Zombie I Scream (iOS)

I saw an episode of Doomsday Preppers the other day where the family didn’t believe in weapons. One of the guys says, “If bandits come I’ll invite them in and either poison them or cut their throats in their sleep.” HUWAT!? Yes. I like you. Also, I’ve found the perfect game for you. Zombie I […]

Post-Apocalyptic kickstarters.

Recently, my favourite gaming magazine did an article on kickstarter funded games. There were a surprising number of post-apocalyptic games on there, which made me happy. The one I’m am most looking forward to is Wastleand 2. It’s not the only post apocalyptic thing on kickstarter, though it is one of the best funded. This […]

There won’t be any video games.

So, my life is so utterly dull right now it’s untrue. I wake up, I study some, I look for a job, I write some fiction, I go to bed. Sometimes I go on a run (I am really excited for the release of Zombies Run! for android, because I’m pathetic) or do some weights. […]

Dead Island – Game of the Year Edition

Deep Silver must be proud of Dead Island. Why? Because they’re giving it a fully loaded Game of the Year Edition. Sure that doesn’t actually mean it’s won or even been nominated for anything but it’s nice to be recognized—even if it is by yourself. Dead Island – Game of the Year Edition isn’t really, […]

Review: Bastion (XBLA)

“There’s like a kid who wakes up and everyone’s dead and the world is gone.” That was how my husband described Bastion to me. “Ew.” Was my response. “That sounds terrible and sad and not like a game at all.” “I guess I can see that. It is pretty sad… Meh, try it,” he said, handing me […]
