Untitled Goose Game: Di’s Game of the Year thus far

I’ve never had a picnic of stolen goods before. Looking down at my picnic rug complete with overturned thermos and sandwiches chucked on the ground, I’m actually pretty proud of myself…and so it begins. Who knew that being a goose could be so much fun? But then again, I’m not just ha...

Yuri

From the gorgeous hand-drawn graphics to the cute “toy instrument” soundtrack to storytelling that leaves it open to interpretation, there is nothing about Yuri that doesn’t say “indie”. Created by brothers Ange and Aurélien Potier, this platformer takes you on a journey guidin...

E3 2019: Di’s Arbitrary Indie Awards

E3 is often about the pomp and circumstance of some of the biggest and most hyped games to come. But if you’re a hipster-gamer like me, read on, dear one. Based on Kinda Funny Games’ 2019 E3 indie showcase, I present to you my very own arbitrary awards ceremony for the indie games that caught my...

The Gardens Between

It always makes me happy when you crack open a new game and the first thing you see is, “Best with headphones.” What it tells me is that the experience I’m about to have comes from people who love their product enough to bring you the finer details. And that is precisely how I would descri...

A Hat in Time is well worth your time

I’ve been wanting to play this game since before it came out, but I never got around to buying it. Then Di, my wonderful fellow PMGer, bought it for me for Christmas! And so I binged that bad boy over the next couple of days. Wow, it was a rollercoaster. A Hat in Time is obviously a kid’s game. ...

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...

The Jackbox Party Pack 5

I squealed when I saw that this was going to be released. It was a little embarrassing because I was in a room full of people minding their own business. Needless to say, I am a big fan of the games. However, if you’re a Jackbox virgin, let me just quickly lay out what’s in store: 1) Learning st...

Sonic Mania Plus

I forgot how hard Sonic is. Or how bad I am at Sonic. Actually, remembering back to the mid 90s, being a NES kid, I remember being pretty rubbish at Sega games in general. Alex The Kidd always saw me being killed by ghosts way too early in the game, losing Paper, Scissors, Rock, and marveling at the fact th...

LEGO Incredibles

Nothing will ever beat the experience that was the first LEGO Star Wars game. That’s why, though still good, every other LEGO game succeeding it was still somehow slightly disappointing. LEGO Incredibles is the same, however I reckon it comes the closest to the glory of LEGO Star Wars. The one thing I...

Super Mario Odyssey!

Okay, I’m going to be straight up with you. The only other Mario game I’ve ever played is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Mario for me was always some other console’s Crash Bandicoot (hey, I’m young, and I only played PlayStation as a kid). But Super Mario Odyssey almost made me feel...
