What I'm Playing: 3/24
Murdered: Soul Suspect I loved this game. I had really low expectations going in. Reviews mentioned a terrible stealth aspect, which seemed like the sort of frustrating gating element that makes me give up on a game. In practice, the stealth wasn’t horrifyi...

What I'm Playing - 2/17
Forza Horizon 2 I was never able to write about one of my favorite games, the 2012 SSX reboot for Xbox360/PS3. The furthest I got was a single link to Tom Chick’s review and a link to this song from the soundtrack. The only sentence I wrote was, and I quote...

I

Flappy Bird & Clones

Puzzles and Dragons - A History
It's impossible to talk about many mechanics present in the App Store today without talking about Puzzles and Dragons. As far as I can tell, this is the prototypical monster collection + fusion game.   P&D launched in February 2012 and according to the deve...

Runers
I'm  on the record as being interested in procedural content ,   b ut like  a  lot of  things, procedural content is hard to do well, and when it falls short, it falls very short.  Run ers  is a top-down  twin-stick shooter. It's a  " roguelike ", which in ...
