Bloodborne Feature Gaming

Bloodborne

Ori Feature Gaming

Ori and the Blind Forest

Lasting First Impressions Ori and the Blind Forest was a game I knew I had to play when it debuted at an Xbox press conference sometime last year.  It is also the first game developed and released by Moon Studios, a collection of former AAA developers.  The experience of those who formed the studio is evident in this […]

The Order 1886 Feature Gaming

The Order 1886

Lasting First Impressions It was hard to ignore the announcement of The Order 1886 when it debuted during the PS4 announcement almost two years ago.

Hand of Fate Feature Gaming

Hand of Fate

Lasting First Impressions When a game developer boasts that they are going to make a game that is a hybrid of several different genres, the chances of such a game going horribly wrong are great. Fortunately, this can’t be said about Defiant Development‘s Hand of Fate, the Kickstarter funded hybrid Rogue-like/Action RPG/Tabletop/Deck Builder game. That […]

Lost Treasures I still find it amazing that after all the years that arcade games have been out that there are still true lost treasures lingering. Omega Race, the 1981 Midway arcade game is definitely one of those for a numb...

Lost Treasures If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then the cover of the PS2 game Dark Cloud has a lot of flattery for the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The boy with the green hat (who’s name is Toan) look...
