Today on Steam you can promise fifteen dollars to Ubisoft in exchange for the potential demonstrated in the Far Cry: Blood Dragon trailer. I have never clicked so hard on something. Seriously, I’m pretty sure that I just mashed a hole in my mouse. As we’ve discussed before, I’m really, really into Far Cry 3…. Read More »

You Should Have Played This: Sim Tower

Sim City is pretty much dead and buried (save for the parts where it seems to work now), so I’d rather not start with an extended metaphor on the botched launch or series of lies that have been told to consumers about the product. Instead I want to talk about making a terrible place to… Read More »

PAX Impressions: Day 3

Comments Off

Few things are like that feeling as three days of madness wind down into fatigue, sleep, and general apathy at a PAX. Hordes diminish to throngs, streetpasses are ignored, and chairs are filled up by exhausted, smelly, sleepy nerds. The vibe is almost infectious; I think I’d be tired today even if I had slept… Read More »

Our podcast: We gave away things! It was awesome seeing friends, family and a bunch of new folks stopping by to listen to Chris and Kelly, and get the pile of free stuff we were giving away. It was a good, pizza-fueled time. Sorcery is a….game?: Meeting the guys from Peter Jackson’s Sorcery was a… Read More »

Its been an insane day and I’m about to stay up until two making poor decisions at tabletop freeplay, so here’s a whole bunch of impressions from PAX Day 1, in no particular order: Elder Scrolls Online: /dance, /lute (your dude has infinite lutes) and /drunk all work. Sometimes in creative combinations. The game itself… Read More »

Why You Should Play Games Like Etrian Odyssey

Written by (@phneri) on March 13, 2013 in Opinion

Comments Off

I’ve been playing a lot of Etrian Odyssey IV lately. Which is to say I’ve been getting mauled to death by wallabees. And butterflies. Then losing an hour of progress while I weep silently in the corner. Etrian Odyssey is kind of a mean game. It’s still a necessary kind of game, though. As much… Read More »

Hey guys, a new Starcraft game is coming out! So let’s talk about a space RTS from 2002. Homeworld was one of the last great franchises from Sierra before it was closed and absorbed into the heaping monolith that is now Activision, and developed by Relic (who have a…storied career of being attached to closed… Read More »

Not every game I want to talk about is a perfect, unblemished gem that’s been hidden in the sands of time. You Should Have Played This is, at its core, me telling you what I thought was rad when I was growing up. These are the experiences that shaped me as a gamer, and as… Read More »
