Baby Steps: A Reivew of Among The Sleep

Baby Steps: A Reivew of Among The Sleep 

I know that I can really get into horror games, so after my first playthrough I was curious to try out Among the Sleep on some friends. I had ‘em over, we set up the projector, and we waited until it was dark. The game doesn’t have enough content to …

The New Fez: A Review of Full Bore

The New Fez: A Review of Full Bore 

I’ve been putting off this review, because I don’t like reviewing a game before I’ve finished my playthrough. However, I just can’t bring myself to rush through it–and honestly, I don’t think I’d be able to if I tried (some puzzles are insane). But to be succinct, I love Full …

Glitchhikers: Interview with Silverstring Media

Glitchhikers: Interview with Silverstring Media 

I played through the beta for Glitchhikers a bunch of times, each time slightly different from the last and each time somehow relaxing yet unsettling. It’s an interesting game, and to describe it in too much detail would be to rob you of some of the experience.
I’ll compromise by telling …

Google Pokémon Challenge

Happy April Fools’ Day, and I would even pay a monthly subscription fee if the Google Pokémon Challenge were real.

Seriously – AR w/ Pokémon? HELLS FREAKING YEAH.
Okay, so the actual alternate reality stuff in the trailer seems to be fake; as it is, you can pull up Google Maps on your smartphone, click …

RPG Club Plays Skyrim: Week 4 Finale

As the month comes to a close, so too does our time with Skyrim. After a long time playing, we all have basically arrived at the conclusion that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has little-to-no replayability. Mike and Ethan reflect on that, while Caitlin gets distracted by over-analyzing the Daedra.

RPG Club Plays Skyrim: Week 3 

Another week, another RPG Club post! This marks the second-to-last week on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Ethan is unimpressed, and the other RPG-ers reflect on music, alchemy, and the Dawnguard DLC.

Not As Fun As The Name Implies

Not As Fun As The Name Implies 

WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.01 is a mess.
The interface is clean and intuitive, the art is gorgeous to the point of breathtaking, and the music is enjoyable and appropriate for the situation (when it’s there). All of these things really appealed to me. The story is interesting, too – the author has …

RPG Club Plays Skyrim: Week 2

RPG Club Plays Skyrim: Week 2 

RPG Club continues through Tamriel, kicking ass and taking names. However, for Caitlin and Reid it’s the second playthrough, and they have different opinions on how that affects the game. Mike and Ethan both seem a little wary of what the game offers.
