The Messenger: An Indie Darling You Need to Play (Game Night!)

There are tons of retro-style Indie games that I adore. 'Shovel Knight' and its numerous expansions rank among my favorite games of all time. 'Stardew Valley' is my go-to game for relaxing. 'Crawl' is one of my favorite multiplayer experiences of all time.

Evoland: A Good Idea Gone to Waste (Game Night!)

Here's an indie game I bet you don't remember. Evoland was never a grand indie gem. It didn't take the world by storm, like Shovel Knight or The Messenger. But I always had a nostalgic soft spot for it. And I believe I mentioned earlier this week that I've been on a trip through memory… Continue reading Evoland: A Good Idea Gone to Waste (Game Night!)

Pokemon Direct 6/5/19: Two Good Boys (Game Night)

How did they make me more excited for this game than I already was? Two days ago, we finally got more details on the upcoming Pokemon games: 'Pokemon Sword' and 'Pokemon Shield' versions. It did give us what we expected, at least for the most part: new Pokemon, the new story-focused legendary Pokemon, and a… Continue reading Pokemon Direct 6/5/19: Two Good Boys (Game Night)

Anime That Should Be Video Games (Game Night!)

Recently, I picked up a certain game. It's a decently popular fighting game, one that will be on the floor for this year's EVO. As I played through it, I started to think. I couldn't help but think: "Hey! This story would be a lot better if it were an anime!" Naturally, this realization led to… Continue reading Anime That Should Be Video Games (Game Night!)
