Lost Sock

I’m no stranger to laundry. However, the way I play newly-released Lost Sock (iOS) by developer Moonstripes would suggest otherwise. In the game, you control the spins of a washing machine trying to get as many revolutions as possible without losing any socks. You start off with a basic pair of socks....

What in the World is “Carmen Sandiego”?

Netflix’s recent release of Carmen Sandiego may trigger excitement in all those 80s babies who grew up with Brøderbund’s original release of the game. If you missed it, you also missed out on the 8-bit version of our red-headed villain and being called “gumshoe” by foreign strangers....

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls 3 came out in 2016. For those unfamiliar with the series, Dark Souls is a challenging action role-playing game made by the Japanese studio FromSoftware. It’s the brainchild of Hidetaki Miyazaki (no not that Miyazaki), a different genius) and a series I’ve invested many hours each titl...

Spider-Man: Silver Lining

Silver Lining starts off like the previous DLCs. You’re slowly introduced to the main storyline and all the side missions. Except this time, you know immediately that this is going to be better than Turf Wars. Hammerhead’s men have been nicking Sable’s stuff, and so Sable appears to take i...

Relive your childhood on the PlayStation Classic

When I first heard about the PlayStation Classic, I thought “Oh, hey, that’s pretty cool.” But I wasn’t sure if it was going to be worth getting and, to be honest, I didn’t think many people would be into it.  It just looks like a quick money grab. But when I saw me and my frie...

Old Man’s Journey: Vacation-Mode Activated

Suspended somewhere between the realm of “game” and “visual novel”, Old Man’s Journey delivers an experience that you’ll probably be expecting based on the title alone. Playing as an old man, your journey starts when a letter arrives. Donning a backpack, the old man’s encounter with places and things sparks...

Spider-Man: Turf Wars

I liked the first part of Spider-Man DLC The City That Never Sleeps. I liked it. It was more of the same but I liked it. I hoped the next parts would be better. This … this is not better. What made The Heist fun was the relationship between Black Cat and Spider-Man and how that affected Peter Parker’s...

Chimparty (PlayLink)

Co-op mode saves the day for Starlink: Battle For Atlas

It’s fair to say I was excited about getting my hands on Starlink: Battle For Atlas. What I found through a couple of weeks of gameplay was a good concept with some flaws in its execution that’s ultimately saved by its wildly fun co-op mode. Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an open-world, space-based action ad...
