While I am always discussing retro games and streaming them on Twitch, its not often I get to actually review retro games here on Marooners’ Rock. That’s the main reason I jumped at the offer to cover this classic Harvest Moon game that has just been made available on PS4 not too long ago. How does Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life Special Edition hold up in the modern era?
Riding off of what made the original so interesting, Toukiden 2 takes the formula into something more unique with some great features for this genre. Similar in setup to Capcom’s Monster Hunter, Toukiden 2 puts the player against powerful Oni inspired by Japanese mythology, using crazy weapons and the powers of the Mitama spirits. All of this frantic combat is held together by a fairly inter...[Read More]

Bulletstorm was a game that I hadn’t heard of back in 2011. I had visited this local gaming store and saw the box art for it and had noticed Epic Games was behind it, of which I am a huge fan of the Gears of War series. Why hadn’t I known about this game then? Well it seems the game was only going to cost me about $4, so I bought it, of course. Initially, I didn’t have my expectations too high due...[Read More]

In recent years there has been a wave of new games that are preying on the sense of nostalgia. 8-bit graphics, retro difficulty, throwbacks and references to your youth are plentiful. While the indie game scene has had some gems, there hasn’t been a game that truly captures the nostalgic feel of a bygone era. Yooka-Laylee seeks to find its place as the successor to those past games.

Well we all knew a sequel was inevitable for the extremely popular Destiny. It’s funny looking back at its rocky and controversial launch back in 2014. A lot of us, myself included, were severely disappointed with the product we originally received. I heavily emphasize the word “disappointed,” because while I was a little let down, there was no denying we had something pretty special here. I...[Read More]
To this day, I still remember picking up Bulletstorm. I’ll be honest and say the game did not interest me when I first heard about it. Quite frankly, I didn’t even really know much about it until it actually came out. Well one day at this local gaming store I live by, I picked it up for literally $5. After a week or so of playing this balls to the wall action campaign, I thought to myself, “...[Read More]
I got the opportunity to sit down and play Serial Cleaner, developed by Digital Fun and iFun4all, at PAX East. I didn’t know what to expect when I was told the concept by the developers, which is, “Fargo meets Hotline Miami,” but I did know that was enough to intrigue me. Serial Cleaner is a stealth action title in the veins of games like Party Hard, and yes, Hotline Miami. Judging by the title, y...[Read More]
