Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

I can honestly say this is the first Resident Evil game that I’ve found to be worth playing since the travesty that was Operation Raccoon City.  In fact, Operation Racoon City tore me away from the franchise altogether; I never cared for the movies, but the games had always been fairly entertaining up until that…

Arkham Horror

Are you feeling good about yourself?  Do you think you’re on top of the world?  Is everything coming up roses?  Are you pissing off everyone around you with your happy go-lucky attitude and optimistic outlook on life? Then Arkham Horror is for you!  Because nothing takes the wind out of over-puffed sails like spending four…

A Touch of Evil

Neither myself nor the Bruddha had ever played this particular game before, though he is a fan of Fortune & Glory, a Flying Frog game which I have not yet had the pleasure of trying out.  The Manimal was a bit leery, as he felt the packaging and the inclusion of a CD to add…

Knock-Knock

I actually feel guilty giving this one this sort of score, since it’s (a) an indie game that was funded on Kickstarter and (b) this is the first less-than-good score I’ve dished out for a game.  It’s not a horrible game. In fact, it’s quite visually engaging… I guess that’s my problem with it, in…

Diablo III

It was a brief conversation with the Bruddah that reminded me that I hadn’t done a review of this game on the site as of yet. Bruddah:  “Have you played Diablo?” Yours Truly:  “I did – but I can never remember if it was the first one or the second one I played.  I don’t…

Firefly: The Game

I am a huge – HUGE – fan of the short-lived television series Firefly (as well as the movie, Serenity, and all Firefly things).  If you’re not familiar with Firefly, then I’m going to need you to sign off of here, get your ass on Netflix, and watch every single episode back-to-back.  Stat. I’m not…

Betrayal at House on the Hill

This may have been one of the first tabletop games I played as an adult.  The Bruddha is very much into tabletop gaming and he’d just flown from the nest at the time; I hadn’t been to see his new apartment, so we merged the two activities into one: get the grand tour of the…

Torchlight II

Somehow this game slipped right past me!  I played the first one back in 2009 and liked it quite a lot… But I’m the sort of player who enjoys a good story – I’ll struggle through a game with shitty mechanics provided it has a decent plot – and the original dungeon-crawling Torchlight just didn’t…

Neverwinter

I’m a Gen X-er, so I was right there in the mid-1980s to experience some of the industry’s biggest growth spurts and accompanying growing pains.  I went to private and fairly progressive schools all over the place, each of which already had a computer lab set up for elementary-aged kids (whereas most of my contemporary…
