Backlog Review | Songbird Symphony

8/19/2019
Have you ever tried to march to the beat of your own drum, only to be faced with sideways glances and the cold shoulder? Not everyone understands your musical joviality, you get that. What if I told you there’s a world where it’s denizens speak only in song? A world that’s so cute and fuzzy that the phrase “cold shoulder” couldn’t possibly exist, because they have soft down covered wings, not shoulders. Well my dear backloggers, I think you’ll fit right in, because this time around on The...

Backlog Review | The Coma: Recut

6/24/2019
Growing up can be hard, especially during those dog days of High School. There’s tests to take, pencils to sharpen and praying to the homework gods above that your dog didn’t eat that assignment you just worked hard on at the last possible moment! But what if you got more than a slap on the wrist for falling asleep in class? What if, instead you woke up in a dark and twisted otherworld filled with tentacles and dead things? A place where your deranged teacher wants nothing more than to...

Dashing to the Top Have you ever wanted to climb a mountain only to fall to your death approximately 4329 times? How about eating a handful of strawberries in a haunted hotel, run by an overbearing and slightly obsessive ghost?

Episode 4 | The Remake Rodeo

3/8/2019
Nostalgia is a force that drives many of us as gamers. We think fondly back on games from our childhood or even from just a few years ago and the great memories we had playing them. But what if you could not only replay the games you loved but also experience them for the first time again? That’s what many developers out there are trying to achieve by not just “remastering” those games but rebuilding them from the ground up. So you still get those warm and fuzzies with an added twist. On...

Episode 3 | Time to Accessorize

1/25/2019
We all know that the best part of video games is playing them. And the best way to do that is to use the controllers that are included in the box. But some companies out there don’t think that’s good enough. Some of them want to give you a more immersive experience, or a unique way to control the games we all love to play. Or maybe they just want you to be able to experience the games you’ve love in the past. And there’s no better way to do that than to accessorize. This month I talk about...
