VIDEOCAST – Zomborg

Zomborg is an overhead action game in which the player shoots zombies… in case the name Zomborg was confusing. We kept dying right at the end of a beginning level but eventually persevere and make it through. But after annoying die several times in a row, we call it quits. Enjoy the stream: Description of …

VIDEOCAST – Nightingale Downs

Gillman and Squall play through the beginning a Nightingale Downs, an indie PC RPG with an 8/16-bit visual style. There are some obvious issues with balance and grinding but playing as a deer in a forest has to account for something. Also, this game is only $1.99 full price on Steam. Eventually we submit to …

BLOG – You Know What Sucks… Collector Editions Need to be Better

Stopping Taking Fans For Granted In my latest edition of “You Know What Sucks…” series of articles, I wanted to bitch about the lack of effort put forth regarding “bonus” editions of games. Whether it is a “limited edition,” “collector’s edition,” or even a “launch edition,” many of these unique versions of games are putting …

VIDEOCAST – Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel

Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel has to be one of the longest, and most difficult to pronounce game titles of all time. Since Gillman and Squall are not that phonetically correct, they simply refer to this as “Rosen 2” or “the game.” For more on the original Rosenkreuzstilette, check out the review and original stream here.

VIDEOCAST – Vostok Inc.

A couple weeks ago, Nosebleed Interactive and BadLand Games sent us a Steam code for Vostok Inc. Even though we never heard of this game before, we decided to fire it up and see what the deal is. To our surprise, the RPG twin-stick gameplay is actually not so bad. Sure, the pop-up dialog box …

VIDEOCAST – Lode Runner Legacy PC

Lode Runner Legacy is the latest version of this long running series. Besides the cubey old-but-new visual style, Legacy is unique because of the included level and character editor. With the ability to share creations online, players can spend hours just tinnkering around, if you are into that sort of thing. For us, however, we …
