  • Review: The Mind of Marlo

    Every time it seems like every storytelling format and every plot idea has been exhausted, a game like The Mind of Marlo comes along to remind us that there still are wildly clever and original stories waiting to be told. A traditional point-and-click adventure game […]

  • Book Review: Steal the Stars

    Adapted from a Tor Labs podcast series of the same name by Mac Rogers, Steal the Stars is a sci-fi love story full of drama and intrigue–a tale of forbidden romance, X-Files-esque extraterrestrial conspiracy, and an ill-advised heist, all wrapped up in a lingering sense […]

  • Review: JASEM: Just Another Shooter with Electronic Music

    Just Another Shooter with Electronic Music really is just another shooter with electronic music. It’s a relatively nondescript low-poly twin-stick shooter that’s pure action and no frills. By no frills I mean not a single one. JASEM puts you in control of a purple and […]

  • Collectible Review: Mass Effect: Andromeda Nomad ND1 Diecast Model

    EA and BioWare took an alternative approach to their collector’s edition offerings for the launch of Mass Effect: Andromeda earlier in the year. Rather than bundling the game with an array of fancy collectibles, they separated the collectible components and the game into individual entities. […]

  • Gear Review: Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station

    Anyone who owns a computer and/or high-end entertainment center for gaming and media consumption likely has at least one, if not two or three, power strips, to keep all devices plugged into one spot while also maintaining protection from potentially damaging electrical surges. The most […]

  • Review: The Invisible Hours

    The potential of virtual reality in video games is limited only by the imagination of what hasn’t been done before. What I have most enjoyed about playing games in VR is the fact that no one game feels like it has been copied directly from something […]
