Adios game review

A pig farmer who is paid by the mob to dispose bodies decides to stop working for them, despite knowing that it will mean his permanent retirement. That is the description of Adios the game, but it is also a description of a lot of self-contained scenes in larger crime movies; the juxtaposition of the […]

Minoria Review

Released in 2019, “Minoria” is a 2.5D action-metroidvania from Bombservice meant to act as a spiritual successor to the Momodoria series. Having no real experience with the Momodoria series, I cannot comment on how faithful it is to previous titles, but I can say that I really enjoyed “Minoria” and think it is GREAT. There […]

Review Extravaganza

Signs of the Sojourner, The Ambassador: Fractured Timelines, Midnight Scenes, Frog Detective 2, Tales from Off-Peak City Vol.1. Since the beginning of 2021, I seemed to have stumbled upon a schedule by accident; there is one article for both movies and games every Friday. I want to keep that schedule, so I decided (at least […]

The medium review

I love horror entertainment. I love horror movies, books, attractions, shows about the paranormal or the scary. Everything adjacent to horror, either by visual aesthetics or tone, I am immediately intrigued; when it comes to games though, that is a different beast altogether. I’ve tried many games in the genre and I always wuss out […]

The 1 to 5 on games: There is no game: Wrong Dimension

This format is a shorter, more to the point, off-shot of the normal review/op-eds I normally do. A ranking will be given at the end from a scale that starts at (from the lowest to the highest): Bad – meh – fine – good – great. Anything not appropriate for these “scores” will likely warrant […]

Going Under review

For as rotten as a year 2020 has been IRL, it has been as outstanding in video game releases; this is especially true for the rogue-like genre. From personal favorites like Neon Abyss to 1.0 releases of games like Risk of Rain 2 and everything in between, you could make a top 5 rogue-likes list […]

The most recent run based games I’ve played: West of Dead and Bloodroots

One of the things I enjoy most about entertainment in general, is how “genre pieces” can be so different from each other even by working/adhering to the same conventions as each other; take run-based games for instance. There are the obvious rogue-lites and rogue-likes, but beyond those there are score-based games, MetroidVania inspired games – […]
