Ori and the Blind Forest: Aggravating, Yet Amazing

Yet another game on my backlog, I had never before heard of Ori and the Blind Forest until someone had requested we play it on our Youtube channel.  Cary ended up taking on the responsibility of recording her playthrough of this amazing game, and as I watched her progress, I knew that this was a…

Metamorphosis: Demo Review

I remember taking a world literature class in high school many years ago, and one of the most intriguing stories was Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, where a young man named Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning to find he has changed into a bug.  There is no explanation for why this has happened, and the…

Shady Part of Me: A Girl and Her Shadow Unite

Shady Part of Me is a unique puzzle-platformer where a girl and her shadow work together to solve puzzles and progress through a watercolor landscape. The two main characters are opposites. The girl is afraid of light and must hide in the shadows, while her shadow must remain in the light and uses shadows as…

Subnautica: A “Broken” Masterpiece

Always on the lookout for good sales on digital games, easily the best deal I ever got was when I downloaded Subnautica for free, thanks to PlayStation’s whole “Play at Home” program.  Having already seen Youtuber 8-BitRyan play the game online, I never really intended on playing Subnautica for myself, as awesome as it looked. …

Goofing Off in Subnautica is Far Too Addicting

Subnautica is one of many games that I have heard good things about, but seeing as I had already watched a playthrough online, I saw no reason to play it for myself.  That all changed when I was perusing the PlayStation Store, only to notice that Subnautica was available for…free?  Was I seeing this right? …

Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memories: Demo Review

Any long-time fan of Kingdom Hearts will know that the series has gotten rather difficult to follow over the years.  And I’m not just talking about the overly complicated plot.  The main, numbered games in the series started on the PS2, and it makes sense that the eventual sequel would find its way onto the…

Limbo: Does It Live Up to Its Successor?

In the past, I reviewed an amazing indie horror game called Inside.  Before this game blessed us with its eerie presence, Playdead released another game you may have heard of by the name of Limbo.  Limbo seemed to be a big deal at the time, though after watching a brief playthrough of the first chunk…

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger: Another Platformer from a Bygone Era

There was something truly special about the platformers released during the late 90’s and early 2000’s.  Banjo-Kazooie, Jak and Daxter, and Sly Cooper were just a few series that were absolutely spectacular, but which, unfortunately, didn’t really survive beyond that golden age of platforming goodness.  Considering my love for these types of games, a friend…

Earthlock: Demo Review

As I peruse the demos currently available on the PlayStation Store, I am bombarded with a staggering number of similar looking RPGs.  Typically a genre that consumes a whole lot of one’s time, RPGs are kind of a big commitment, and so it makes sense to check out the demo first in order to decide…

The Mooseman: Beautiful, Eerie, Yet Unsatisfying

Ever since I have begun buying digital games, I have found no shortage of interesting, artsy looking options.  Beautiful they may be, but more often than not, these games prove why you shouldn’t judge something based on looks alone.  The most recent example of this is The Mooseman, an extremely intriguing looking game that is…
