Chromatize me, Cap’n! First Impressions of Chroma Squad!

I’m going to preface this post with the following: I grew up with Power Rangers, and, as I grew into an adult, began to randomly pick up and watch other Tokusatsu shows (most recently, Gokaiger and Kamen Rider Wizard). Once I heard the premise of this game, I basically fangasmed and bought it the day…

Affordable Space Adventures: How Affordable Is It?

Hello again everyone! I decided to grace you all with another game review. This one of a “weekend” game I picked up hoping to get my wife to join in due to the gimmick: Affordable Space Adventures. Sadly, I couldn’t get her to actually play the game, but she did join me as I put…

Code Name S.T.E.A.M.: A Review

As some of you may remember, I wrote a little note about the game Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. a month ago, commenting on how they sneak in literary characters that may or may not inspire you to read the works they came from. Now that I’ve finally finished the game, I think a review is in…

Learning With Easter Eggs

Needing to take a break from the depression that is Majora’s Mask, I decided to pick up a copy of Codename: S.T.E.A.M. due to my love of steampunk and strategy games. I’ve only been able to put about 5 hours in so far (mostly during lunch breaks; even NPCs have to eat!), but it’s been…

Hands on with Overwatch

By Tim Minahan, 27 March 2015 A little delayed, but a couple weeks ago I had the great opportunity to be at PAX East. It was my very first PAX ever, and while I’ve been to New York Comic Con and Fan Expo, I was absolutely astonished by this convention. The highlight of my weekend…

By JimboSlice 26 March 2015 If you missed it, check out Part 1 here! and Part 2 here! When we last left off (yesterday) I had just successfully escaped Pittsburgh and was free on the open road again.  When I started playing this time, my initial hope was immediately doused by a grim reminder.  Only a few…

The Organ Trail Diaries: Part 2

By JimboSlice 25 March 2015 If you missed it, check out Part 1 here! Finally, the game was beginning in earnest.  I was on my own (well, with my three best friends great acquaintances good coworkers other people and one professional zombie slayer) to live or die by my own choices, no longer hampered by the stupidity of other…

The Organ Trail Diaries: Part 1

By JimboSlice 24 March 2015 For review in several parts this week, I decided to browse through my Steam library and pull out something I knew I’d like but that I hadn’t ever finished before (so that I’d still get to enjoy playing the game as a game).  I chose Organ Trail: The Director’s Cut,…
