Gamers, Not Always 100%ers

A gamer once told me that 100% completion was the only way to be called a gamer. This is my retort. Video games are meant to be enjoyed. The video game industry has blossomed in the last few years, leaving behind a legacy of what the gaming industry can be. Barring a few dark spots […]

The Hidden Story: Body Language in Video Games

Video games have been telling stories since their advent in the 20th century, but it was not until graphics began to evolve into three-dimensional space that the capacity for nuanced body language was created. Storytelling could open up into the subtle world of non-verbal storytelling and the recent God of War and DOOM reboots truly […]

Life is Strange 2 Episode 1: Review

I’m not ashamed to admit that every now and then I’ll stare at a cup with my hand stretched out, hoping to see it move or shake. Alas, my telekinetic ability is still latent, instead of my mind moving the cup, my girlfriend takes pity on me and hands it to me instead. But I […]

An Interview with Greg Lobanov, Creator of Wandersong

Interview: “I love bards. Their role and skills are silly” You play as a walking musical instrument! You can run, jump, and sing anytime you want. Different things respond to your music in different ways. You use your song to solve puzzles and help characters while playing as a bard who finds out he can […]

Message in a Bottle: A Gamer’s Review of Battle for Azeroth

It was a hot summer evening as I walked across campus, glistening with sweat. As I stopped for a moment’s respite, I sat on a bench at the edge of a lake. Tired, stressed, and yearning for my computer back home, I found myself lost in thought. It was then that I noticed the glint […]

Interview: “like all artistic endeavours, there is no guarantee of stable income” Just imagine someone creating his game at home all by himself. He works alone and has no financial security himself. At the end it will never be sure if the bill can be paid, while he works full time. Well – Video game […]

Minit Review: A Mini Majora’s Mask

If you only had one minute to live what would you do? This is the question Minit raises. In most games, dying is the main thing you are trying to avoid on your quest to complete objectives. However, Minit does not give you the option to stray from death. This is a unique adventure game […]

It’s Raining Indies

With Gamescom 2018 only a day away it seems that no one can really wait to reveal their new goodies in tech and gaming to the public. We’ve already seen Nvidia reveal a new graphics card that will figuratively and quite literally (depending on which underground market you go to) cost you an arm and […]

Slam Land Review: A Fighting Game Without Combat?

Once in a blue moon a game comes down the pipe that completely changes the landscape of gaming and redefines a genre, like Super Mario 64 did for 3D Platformers or World of Warcraft for MMORPGs, but sadly in the case of Bread Machine Games’ Slam Land, the lack of any sort of unlockables and […]

It All Looks So Big From Down Here

I recently had a revelation that may have changed my life for better or worse. What if the bugs you see aren’t actually bugs? Before you immediately assume this revelation was brought on by some experimenting with the fabled “Devil’s Lettuce”, I assure you I was of clear mind, body and soul at the time […]
