Every Wii U owner should be happy to add Hyrule Warriors to their collection. It mixes gameplay from several favorites including Zelda and Dynasty Warriors to form a unique combat-intensive battler.
Welcome Time Wasters! I was into yet another deep game this week with Abyss (Deep game. Abyss. Chasm. Yeah, I’m not as funny as I think I am.), a browser-based game that puts players in the role of a bird in a volcano. There’s not much in the way of story to Abyss. A small opening cutscene shows several birds sitting around an open hole in the ground and one of them jumping in. It’s not established why the birds jumped into the hole, but it turns out to be a volcano. It would be way too easy to just fly […]
Welcome Time Wasters! This week I checked out an early version of a game called Chasm. Chasm is a Kickstarter game that has been successfully funded and is now available for pre-order. Chasm puts players in the role of a weary warrior that is making his way home. On his journey, he reaches a small mining town that has run into a unique problem; they can’t leave the town and all the miners are missing. The miner chief enlists the help of the warrior to figure out what is going on in the mines and put it right. Chasm is a […]

Welcome Time Wasters! Can I just start this off by saying we live in a unique time as gamers. The indie scene has blown up over the last few years and it’s great to see developers getting their games released without publishers. We’re also seeing developers takes genres we know and love and mix them together to create new, interesting titles. This includes games like Destiny, League of Legend and Cannon Brawl. Just in case the title of this article didn’t make it obvious, Cannon Brawl is the game I spent my time with this week. It was just released on Steam […]
The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 5: No Turning Back ends the second season of the excellent video game series. Who lives? Who dies? And where in the heck will the series go from here?
This week Billy checks out a free multiplayer game on Steam called Gear Up that has him building tanks to fight other players. Should you give it a look?
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky took ten years to come to America, and then it was a PSP game. Now it makes the jump to the PC, and our resident JRPG loving reviewer, Billy White, is there to play it through. Is this one lost in translation, or a valuable find?
Welcome Time Wasters! This week my search for a time waster lead me around the internet until I discovered a neat little game called HYDRA. HYDRA is a hack-n-slash game viewed from the side that pits the players against a deadly hydra. There isn’t really a story as to why the player has to fight the hydra, it’s just there and needs to be killed. The only problem is that it can’t be. HYDRA is a high-score game that challenges players to cut off as many heads of the hydra as they can. Each head destroyed counts as a single […]
