Playable Perplexities: FFXIII-2 Revisited.

I beat the game, I bought the first DLCs immediately and felt silly for spending 3 dollars on an outfit for Noel, but hey, he looked cool and I though it was pretty rad. Then I was pointed to what they are planning for as far as outfits for the next DLC. And I kind of wanted […]

It’s Not Psychonauts 2, but…

Earlier this week, the internet teased us all with the possibility of there being a sequel to the insanely popular cross platform adventure game, Psychonauts. The creator of Minecraft, over Twitter, messaged Tim Schafer and made him an offer. While it might have been turned down, the head of Double Fine Productions is already well […]

Youtube Interlude: Gamers

A themed collection of Youtube vids for your viewing pleasure! Or, if you prefer, a collection of things that are awesome or that made me laugh this week!   A very good parody video (based on another parody?).  If you aren’t familiar with the “Sh*t Girls Say” I’d recommend that too, but this one is […]

Episode 32: Archetype is Not a Dirty Word

Geekin' Out Podcast

When we enjoy a movie, TV episode, comic or video game we give most of the credit to the great characterization of the hero, villain and everything in-between. Without good characters, there are no good stories. But what makes these characters so great? Is it their actions, their struggles, or the fact that they kick […]

Late to the Party: Assassin’s Creed II

Waiting for a month to review a game is probably not the best move I’ve ever made. I don’t remember a lot of the specific parts of the plot that tie the game together, so I’m going to be referring to a lot of reference material. You were warned. Initially I wanted to finish the […]

Word Nerd: UpWords and SkyWords

I thought I’d try to do something different (again) with my Word Nerd article, as it’s both easier and harder to write than my Late to the Party reviews. This time, instead of complaining about people who can’t write properly or for praising particular words for their brilliance, I’m going to drag a game into […]

Shadows of the Damned: Grindhouse Gaming

I’m just going to jump right into this for a second, because something happened in this game that I think needs to be recounted in full.  There is a moment when you’re facing some tougher enemies, and some heavier artillery is required.  You’re skull-demon sidekick Johnson (who, it should be mentioned, transforms into a gun […]
