There are some pretty bizarre games out there and Varagtp’s Cooking Witch may be one of those games. You are a witch. A hungry witch. Good thing someone’s throwing a party in a forest! It’s the perfect opportunity for you to fly around on your broom and crash the party for a little late-night snack!

The news also includes four new creatures, new music tracks, additional player character hair customization options, and a revised volcano. Other updates include adding full console-style gamepad functionality to the Steam version of the game, a welcome addition for ...[Read More]
Mages have a long history with video games. They are sometimes cast as villains and other times as members of the party. So, what makes magic fun? I had the chance to play Mages of Mystralia and now, I feel, that the question can finally be answered.
From 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea to The Hunt for Red October and even Down Periscope. There have been numerous submarine movies over the years, but far fewer games. With Diluvion, developer Arachnid Games aims to place a new entry in the pantheon of undersea adventure games.
Greetings Backloggers! While I struggle through thirty-five year old shareware classics, this week I also took on one of Dharker Studio’s Visual Novels. Highschool Possession is one of their earlier titles released in 2015, and has been in my backlog since February 2016.
Greetings Backloggers! A new month always means new freebies from various game services; to keep pace, I needed to finish three games this week to compensate for April’s Games With Gold offering. Appropriate then, that first up would be another Games With Gold acquisition: 2014 top down brawler Knight Squad.
Greetings Backloggers! Nearly thirty years before Flappy Bird tapped its way onto phones and tablets around the world, a different semi-flightless bird bounded her way through the world’s arcades. Starring a blue bird named Flicky trying to rescue her chicks from the predations of cats and lizards, the eponymous game would be ported to a number of systems including the SEGA Genesis.
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]
Greetings Backloggers! Thanks to some timely support from the team at Vysoko Anime Productions, I was able to resume and complete Invisible Apartment Zero this week! Huge props to them for diagnosing my game crash and giving me a workaround after seeing my post on the Steam community forums.
Some of the earliest first person shooters, and even games as a whole, I remember playing in my youth were Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake. Ever since Bethesda has taken over the old iD Software licenses, they’ve been slowly bringing the classics into the modern era with Wolfenstein: The New Order and DOOM. Now, it’s Quake’s turn with Quake Champions, a mulitplayer experience that’s focusing...[Read More]
Greetings Backloggers! It’s always interesting to me to see the history of how something has come to be. Fallout 4 wouldn’t be the game it was without Fallout 1 & 2, for example, nor would The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild be what it is without a history of Zelda games stretching back over twenty years and across every Nintendo platform.
Lego games have always been a staple of gaming in my house. They are so popular that my wife got her mom playing them. She’s much more thorough than I am. She has no problem attempting to get that 100% in a Lego Game. Me? I just don’t have the time. That being said there are games that have come out that I don’t need to dedicate a bunch of time to if I don’t want to. Minecraft is a great example o...[Read More]
