Bacon Man: An Adventure Preview

Jul 24, 2014

When I read that Bacon Man: An Adventure was an action-platformer in the vein of Mega Man X, Rayman, and Earthworm Jim, I was all too willing to bite. Mega Man X is quite possibly one of the best games ever (and one of my personal favorites), so I was ready to dive into some slick running and gunning against equally matched foes. After playing the 15 minute...

Apr 18, 2014

Exploratory narrative, golf and steampunk are not words you would ever think to associate with one another, yet Vertiginous Golf wants to merge all of those strange terms into one very strange game. The world is a dreary landscape of never-ending rain and, thankfully, there is an escape in the rich virtual landscape of the Vertiginousphere, where you and your...

Is there a name for the “Minecraft-like” genre yet? Are they sandbox games, taking that term away from the GTAs of the world? That’s fine I guess, considering they are usually called open-world games anyway. It’s heartening to be involved in what is still the formative years of gaming, where new genres can still come out of nowhere and...

Although the portion of the game that I played was brief, I think it has given me a good idea of what to expect on March 21st....

Now we’re in the calm before the storm that is Titanfall, the next game from the architects of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and the current FPS boom. A lot about the game was kept extremely quiet before the beta began,...

The Elder Scrolls Online Preview

Feb 21, 2014

I have to admit—going into the beta, I didn’t expect much from The Elder Scrolls Online. Even as I’m a big fan of the franchise, I’ve never been particularly invested in MMORPGs. However, I was offered a chance to try out the game and since I had nothing better to do over the weekend, I decided to give it a chance. While the The Elder Scrolls...
