As a parent I’m always on the lookout for games my children find interesting that offer something beneficial to them (in my eyes). Games like Minecraft, for example, are incredible examples of fun activities that cultivate the creative spirit in all of us. Many parents who let their children play Minecraft report that it has… Read More »

Let RNG be your guide in the first expansion for Hearthstone! If you are wondering where that RNG (Random Number Generation) will take you so am I, but the journey is too fun to pass up. Before we look at the randomness offered in the expansion we should instead look at what we get from… Read More »

Review: Hearthstone

[, , , ]

Traditional and tabletop games have recently started to hit critical mass. The wildly successful cult-hit Settlers of Catan, for example, isn’t just for isolated college dorms anymore but is openly played at bars and coffee shops. This continual mainstream appeal of board games has permeated into video games, with Blizzard’s free to play deck building… Read More »

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: Foodimal Frenzy is a puzzle-match game based on the sequel to the 2009 hit family film. Yes, it’s a mobile game.

My wife and I were pretty tired from a long day but we wanted to play something together. I didn’t feel like booting a console up, and despite my love for cerebral tabletop games I just couldn’t muster the brainpower for a rousing game of Puerto Rico. I needed something simple, something short, and something… Read More »

Review: Injustice: Gods Among Us

Perfect for those moments when you are waiting in line or during a commercial on TV. It does exactly what a mobile game should do. Provide you with quick entertainment for those breaks throughout the day, provide you with something to keep coming back for with the collectible card game and the leveling up of the characters, and serve to help market the other versions of the game by allowing you to link your WB ID and unlock console items by playing. The best part is, it’s free.

If you have an iPad 2, you should have The Room. Released a couple months ago by indie developer Fireproof Studios, the game has quickly built a solid following of fans and press accolades. And for very good reason. While the title is essentially nothing more than a room with a table occupied by one single… Read More »

Review: Disney Fairy Fashion Boutique

Disney Fairy Fashion Boutique is a game targeted towards younger gamers who are beginning to build management skills. The game’s surprising depth will suck those gamers in for hours without them realizing it. The “Just one more order” mechanic will keep gamers coming back and keep them from leaving. This is an excellent freemium game.

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m usually a little leery whenever I hear about any new release from Adult Swim Games. After all, we’re talking about Adult Swim here … the same channel that cracks me up weekly with shows like The Venture Bros. and Robot Chicken, while simultaneously making me switch the TV to anything… Read More »
