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 […]

Shadows of Adam Review

Platforms: Windows (reviewed), Mac, and Linux It’s been tough to find the time to go back to some of my favorite JRPG from my youth.

Platforms: Steam, PlayStation 4 (reviewed), and Xbox One The word necropolis should bring fear, dread, or any number of other frightening thoughts to mind when you hear it. I mean, it does translate to “city of the dead.” Unfortunately for Necropolis, the game, it neither lives up to its name nor the games it is […]

Oceanhorn Coming To Playstation 4 And Xbox One September 7th

Looks like FDG Entertainment is making that hope come true as Oceanhorn is coming to Playstation 4 and Xbox One as a digital release on September 7th.

The Magic Circle: Gold Edition Review

Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux, Playstation 4 and Xbox One (reviewed) I’ve toyed with the idea of making my own game. Most of us that play video games always have some sense that we could do as much. I dabbled in RPG Maker back in 2001 on the Playstation and after a memory card corruption wiping […]
