This is my goddamn show!

89 – Catchy Propoganda

Jason Arriola, John Lucero, and Vanessa Cahill talk about Ness’ adventures in the wonderful world of the Switch, Geralt’s adventures in The Withcer III, and Jason’s love of the combat in Dragon’s Dogma. Mini rundown on the Nintendo Direct Mini! And… Labo is as Nintendo as Nintendo gets. We know you like us, so you should like us […]

Jason Arriola’s Favorite Podcasts of 2017

If you’re looking for some podcasts to listen to, I’ve got a few suggestions for you. These are a few of my favorites that I either started listening to last year, they started last year, or I felt they really came into their own last year. You know, some sort of qualification tying it to […]

Jason Arriola’s Top Ten (Mostly) Game Albums of the Year

    We put up John’s favorite albums from 2017 earlier this week. To jump on the bandwagon, these are my favorite game-related albums from last year. Most of them are direct soundtracks, but some are fan made remixes that stuck with me throughout the year.   Honorable Mentions: Shadows of Adam – Tyler Mire, Blossom Tales: […]

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 […]
