84 – After Golf Story

Jason Arriola and John Lucero have a lot of ground to cover since they last podcasted together. Evil Within 2, Golf Story, Jason’s purchases, Cuphead sells a million, loot boxes, Blade Runner 2049, and the second season of Attack on Titan get more than a strafing run. There’s extra music in this one to help take the sting out of how much Jason didn’t […]

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Review

Platforms: PlayStation 4 (reviewed), Vita, and Windows Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana is the latest entry in the now 30 year old series. If you’re unfamiliar, Ys is an action-RPG series that’s largely known for its snappy combat and kickass soundtracks. While this is Ys’ first step into 3D, Falcom has had experience in making […]

Observer Review

Platforms: Playstation 4, Windows, and Xbox One (reviewed) Observer is a sci-fi horror game that takes inspiration from Bloober Team’s previous effort, Layers of Fear, and adds in the dirty, futuristic feel of Blade Runner. Its attempt to make a connection with the sci-fi classic becomes apparent as soon as you learn that the Rutger […]

GAJ Game Night – Valkyria Revolution and The Long Dark

First up, we were trying to play the Final Fantasy XV multiplayer beta, but some server issues killed that idea. We ended up going with Valkyria Revolution, a Musou game that has you mashing on buttons to skip the cutscenes more than actually attacking. A couple of days later, we decided to check out the The Long Dark. […]

The Possible Realities Of A Nintendo 64 Classic

I feel like we’re partially responsible for this, willing it into an early existence, having talked about the possibility of a Nintendo 64 Classic on the latest podcast. If you haven’t heard, Nintendo filed a trademark for the Nintendo 64 controller image.   It seems more an inevitability than a “what if”, so I started […]

Cladun Returns: This Is Sengoku! Review

Platforms: Playstation 4 (reviewed), Playstation Vita (reviewed), and Windows Grinding in RPG’s is so entrenched in the genre that, at this point, it almost feels like near impossible for it to divorce itself from it. Hell, it’s such a part of the genre that a subgenre of them relishes in the grind, letting those of […]

Drifting Lands – See You Space Cowboy

Drifting Lands is a side-scrolling shooter after my heart. It takes a side-scrolling shooter and adds in RPG and rogue-like elements and that should keep me coming back far longer than pattern recognition does. I stepped into it a few days ago and found myself backing away from it before I even got a chance […]

Apple iOS 11 Is Going To Kill Some Games

When Games and Junk first started, putting classic video games on the iPhone seemed absurd. The screen on the iPhone 4 seemed too small to be able to properly enjoy Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, and even the original Final Fantasy. I could only imagine playing these inferior ports turning people off them. All it really took to […]

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Coming To Playstation 4 In 2018

It’s been an odd haul for the until-now arcade-only Dissidia Final Fantasy. The fighting game was built on modified Playstation 4 hardware, but it wasn’t until today that Square Enix announced that it will be coming to the Playstation 4 in 2018 as Dissidia Final Fantasy NT (which is somehow not the most unwieldy title in the […]

Cladun Returns: This Is Sengoku Now Available

If you’re in the mood for an action RPG with an old school feel and tons of customization, then Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku! is right up your alley. Just released today for Playstation 4, Vita, and Windows via Steam platforms, Cladun Returns has a ton of features that got more than a bit of my attention. You […]
