Completed – Trigger City

Recently we’ve sold quite a few copies of River City Ransom here at the store, so it has gotten me in the mood to play some side-scrolling brawlers. Games like River City Ransom and Mystical Ninja Goemon are the first two that come to my mind, but with my crazy busy schedule, I’m not able […]

Completed! Kingdom Rush for iOS and Chrome

Kingdom Rush by Ironhide Games is easily one of the most addictive games I have ever played. Not only that, it is the best tower defense game I have ever played. This pleasant surprise of a game has charmed and challenged it’s way into my heart like few other games have in a long while. […]

Completed! Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden (PC)

When inspiration hits, you have to grab hold and go with it. That’s what happened a few weeks ago with me and the last game I finished, Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. I first heard about it from the 1Up Show two years ago. I was sold on the game the moment I heard […]

PixelJunk Shooter – One Year in the Making!

“Dearest Aaron and Sarah, Remember that one time you heroically plunged into the depths of a foreign planet, pulverized a wide variety of strange creatures, accidentally slaughtered a few of my friends, and eventually saved me from the bowels of a giant robotic drilling machine that was hell bent on… drilling? Yeah, those were good […]

Limbo! — Complete

This Sunday Sarah and I sat down to blast through Limbo, the exciting and stylistic new puzzle/platformer for XBOX Live! Arcade. Having tried to read through Dante’s Divine Comedy in the 9th grade, I consider myself able to judge this purgatory of a videogame just as well as the next guy (who also tried to […]

Completed! Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (DS)

A few weeks ago, I finished Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney for the DS. In the fourth installment of the Ace Attorney series, a new main character is introduced and takes center stage in the court room- Apollo Justice. Apollo is enthusiastic and ready to prove his worth in court by putting his “chords of steel” […]

The Secret of Monkey Island – Special Edition

This 4th of July weekend, Sarah and I had the opportunity to watch some fireworks… just not the typical kind — you know, outdoors on a warm summer night. Nope, the fireworks we saw preceded the ending credits of LucasArts’ amazing remake of the Secret of Monkey Isand. My first introduction to the Monkey Island […]

What’cha Been Playing?! (Lots of stuff!)

Sorry it has been a little quiet here, but we’ve been playing a ton of games as of late. Personally, I’ve been doing quite a bit of catching up with Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS), and Apollo Justice (DS), revisiting games like PixelJunk Monsters (PS3), and playing recently discovered games like Babo Violent 2 (PC) […]

Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen (DS) – Completed!

Last night the world was saved by Hero (my character) and my plucky band of party members from the evil Psaro the Manslayer. Now now, no need to thank us- it’s all in a days work. Okay, well maybe not in “a days” work, it was more like 50 hours, but details details! All you […]

Castlevania – Order of Ecclesia

This past week I managed to finish off the 3rd DS Castlevania game – Order of Ecclesia.  All three games took a slightly (very slightly) different aproach to the “Metroid-vania” formula, but there’s just enough variety in each to make them stand out on their own. Order of Ecclesia learns some good leasons from each […]
