Game Review: Obamacare

covered-california

You’ve probably already heard about this new puzzle game that is sweeping the country. Maybe you’ve already played it! It seems like people either love it or hate it, like with a lot of genre-breaking or re-imaging games. I’ve finally jumped on the Obamacare bandwagon! As usual, I’m late to the party. I do generally […]

What Facebook will do with Oculus Rift

oculustomodom

How can you blame Oculus for selling out to Facebook? It was a lot of money. A LOT. I can’t even wrap my head around how much money that was. Sure, maybe Zuckerburg will help them make it a great gaming platform with all of the funds and talent they could ever want. My dream […]

tomo

Ballpoint Universe Infinite is a little indie game I found on Steam. Sure, there are other, bigger, flashier games out there to review, but this one captured my imagination because of the quirky graphics. All the images in the game are ballpoint pen drawings!

What Video Game Box Art Really Says

Ever find yourself browsing games at the local Gamestop or on Steam and looking at the cover art and thinking, “What the heck is this game about?” Sometimes video game box art is just odd, and doesn’t really say anything about the game that it’s representing, even though it’s usually the first thing we see.

The Neverhood Retro Game Video Review

metit1

When I was a kid my best friend and I played this game together. We talked about it all the time and solved the puzzles together and we even made little clay sculptures and environments inspired by the game world! It was pretty great. I really wish there were more really odd games out there […]
