This War of Mine: review

Nov 20, 2014

Early impressions of This War of Mine were that the game had a lot to show off and was very interesting. And interesting it is; but it most certainly doesn’t hand out your garden variety type of fun that games are required to serve by law.

Randal’s Monday – Review

Nov 11, 2014

Randal’s Monday is a semi-humorous old school point and click adventure game that is all about remembering TV and films you grew up with, as well as pretty much any remotely popular game that’s ever existed. Do you remember [insert TV show/film/game name here]? Well Randal’s Monday sure does and it won’t let you forget that fact. Look at background...
