Return NULL – Episode 1 (THE NOW)

Return NULL – Episode 1 (THE NOW)

And here I thought Steam would disappoint.  Nope – I got a sufficiently fascinating game for my money.  Lucky me. SPOILERS for the game follow:

RvB 13 – Episode 2: Capital Assets (THE NOW)

RvB 13 – Episode 2: Capital Assets (THE NOW)

While this season still appears to be setting up pieces of a larger puzzle, Capital Assets is more about addressing the lingering conflict and character dynamics coming out of Season 12.  So in that sense more is going on here than last episode – though there’s still room for levity in-between the world building scenes.

Call of Duty

Video Review: On the way… Written Review: When I think about how the first-person shooter has evolved, my first instinct is to turn to Call of Duty.  The little-remembered 2003 war epic turned a niche genre – the military shooter – into a full-blown phenomenon, earning millions for publisher Activision and resulting in an avalanche of […]

I’m only asking because every time I’ve actually tried an indie game, I’ve come away feeling like the $100 or so spent on various Call of Duties over the years was probably […]

Other games look to our nostalgia, our knowledge of the golden days of pop culture.  Poker Night 2 is the natural blend of these two ideas, while also being a damn fine simulation of poker. Developed by Telltale Games, Poker Night 2 expands on the premise of the […]
