Kickstart-it: Extreme Gravity Rage

Kickstart-it is a brand new weekly segment where I’ll talk about new, creative projects on Kickstarter, popular projects or anything in between.

F-Zero. A racing series where going under the speed of sound will net you the infamous title of “casul”. A series, which, even though beloved by many, hasn’t seen a proper new entry since the GameCube days. The good ol’ folks over at Next Generation Games might just do what Nintendon’t™ .

Review: World’s Fastest Pizza

I know what you’re thinking. A serious review on this game? That is a recipe for disaster, kinda like electing Tony Abbott. ‘World’s Fastest Pizza’ is a high speed rogue-like comedy game about delivering pizza to the hungry customers of a sleazy fast-food restaurant. Developed by Oscar Brittain, you play as Tortoiseman, who also works under the alias of Cornelius Pretorius. Aside from winning the naming lottery, the game’s protagonist also has the prestige of working at fast-food restaurant in the outbacks of Australia. Continue reading “Review: World’s Fastest Pizza”

The Hungry Games

I know what you’re thinking. Another rushed early access game on steam = Skip. I must stop you right there. Although The Culling may look like a generic battle royale type game, once you delve deeper into the game, you realize that it is much more than that. ‘The Culling’ by Xaviant games is a stand alone entry into the battle royale genre. This is a great game for learning about friendship and betrayal. Nothing screams life lesson like the guy that you just helped turning around and stabbing you right in your heart. A great educational game for adults who want to find out what the corporate world is like. Continue reading “The Hungry Games”

Living life a quarter mile at a time

A couple days ago, the people over at the Humble Bundle finally dropped their monthly bundle. There were a few standout games that caught my eye but I will be honest, Switchcars was not one of those games. However, once I decided to load up this ‘vehicular rogue-like’ game, I was pleasantly surprised. It was like finding that elusive piece of pizza that had been sitting at the back of the fridge for days, sure I was hesitant to try it at first, but after going for it, I was glad I did.

Review: Helldivers

Whether I would enjoy Helldivers was a question that lasted the fifteen seconds it took me to deploy from my ship to a mission. I inexpertly chose to helldive in the middle of an objective – a SAM site I had to reactivate in order to help the war effort against the Bugs – and what that meant was the moment I came out of my pod I was swarmed by crawling insects, desperately trying to bludgeon and fire my way away from them before activating. I survived, because democracy must be brought to everyone. Continue reading “Review: Helldivers”

New, free expedition for exploring roguelike Renowned Explorers: International Society

Renowned Explorers: International Society [Official Site] is a game about being a mean dickwad to everyone you meet. I hear there are other ways of playing it, but I can’t see why’d anyone want to do that. I played and praised it when it first came out, and after a few months of bugfixing and balance updates the team at Abbey Games have prepared the first content DLC for it – and it’s free! Continue reading “New, free expedition for exploring roguelike Renowned Explorers: International Society”

Memoranda, where Haruki Murakami meets video games

There are few authors of recent times that have managed to enrapture me as much as Haruki Murakami has. The prolific Japanese writer has authored dozens of novels within multiple genres, but of my personal preference are his books of the magical realism sort. Self-proclaimed to be inspired by his works, Memoranda is a point & click adventure game about a girl who realizes she’s forgetting her name and must do something about it.
