As we get closer to PAX East this weekend we continue to learn about new titles that will be at the show. One such new title is Dead Cells, a Castlevania style action-platformer making use of pixelized graphics. If I had to pick a generation Dead Cells fit best, I would have to pick Neo Geo pseudo 24-Bit. Read more »

Expeditions Vikings Brings Valhalla to Worthy Gamers
When you mention historical anything to most gamers you probably receive a blank stare. This is partly because words like historical bring back memories of “edutainment” where gamers are treated like idiots trying to learn math and such via colorful graphics and horrible gameplay. Expeditions Vikings is not edutainment but it still holds historical elements […]

Make Hexa on Android Review, ZTE ZMAX 2 Device
I am a huge fan of just a few genres of gaming. Brawlers (Final Fight, Streets of Rage, etc), Full Motion Video (stop laughing) and puzzle games (Tetris, Columns, Tetris Attack, etc) are all at the top of my gaming go to genres. I discovered hex puzzles when I had an old Nokia smart phone […]

Well, the good news is that Northdgard will be on display at this year’s PAX East event on March 10th. The even better news, Northgard will feature new, until now unseen, content. Read more »
Lara Croft GO is one of those “chances” that companies sometimes take on franchises. Starting out as a 3D third person adventure game starring Lara Croft, Tomb Raider set new interest in gaming. It could be that the main character was a female and the developers made sure she was scantily clad – maybe to entice the mostly male gaming audience of the mid 90’s into buying it. The character, Lara Croft, has transcended her role as eye candy to something more akin to the action characters she was fashioned after. Square Enix have not kept her tied up with 3D third person action games either. Read more »
Anyone that has played games for any decent length of time has experienced more than one tactical strategy game featuring soldiers. These games often have some semblance of realism built in, at least they want you to think that. Spy DNA is another tactical strategy game featuring soldiers and real world based weapons and armor. Things go a bit farther than the competition here though as in game items follow real world physics. Closely. Read more »

It seems that Comcast is dead set on making customers mad on a regular basis. This is never more evident than how they treat their customers that use the Comcast mobile apps. Take the XFINITY app for instance. While not loved, it was serviceable. That apparently is too much serviceability for Comcast to stand as they made some major changes to that app and now it is called the XFINITY Stream. Slighty disclaimer here – I am a Comcast home Internet customer but this article is completely of my accord. Read more »
The Other 99, for those that don’t know already, is a first-person action-survival game. You wake up on a mysterious island and have no clue how you got here. Nearby you is a note that simply reads, “The only way off the island is through The Other 99.” Eerie doesn’t even begin to describe your situation. Read more »
I have a confession to make, I am a huge fan of Civilization, still play the second game a lot (including the new fan port to the Commodore 64). Probably more than I should. I got seriously addicted to the third game in the series (got that handy “Game of the Year Edition” or whatever it was called). After getting over that slight addiction (I have articles to write) I thought the worst was behind me. Then I get an e-mail from the PR rep for Northgard and have a sinking feeling that I have another addiction in my near future. Read more »
