Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark Review: Stealthy Bastard

Posted on: August 20th, 2013 by Nick Bristow No Comments

Stealth Inc, or by its cleverer original name Stealth Bastard, is one of those indie games that seems like it was made specifically for me. While not completely lacking in story, it’s really not that important. You play a clone, assumedly, stuck in some kind of facility that is designed to test your stealthing abilities. Throughout […]


Hotline Miami PS3/Vita Review

Posted on: July 10th, 2013 by Michael DiMauro No Comments

If you didn’t play Hotline Miami when it came out on PC, then you missed an incredible game. From the second you turn on the game, you will know that you are in for an experience that you haven’t had before. The graphics are lo-fi and just feel grungy and weird. The title screen is […]


The Last of Us Review

Posted on: July 9th, 2013 by Michael DiMauro No Comments

Naughty Dog’s latest game, The Last of Us, is the story of a grizzled survivor (Joel) who thinks he has lost everything, and a young girl (Ellie) who has been hardened by a world gone horribly wrong. 20 years earlier, a fungal infection wiped out most of Earth’s population, and transformed the victims into mindless killing machines. You know […]


Dead Island Riptide Review – Hello, Darkness My Old Friend.

Posted on: July 1st, 2013 by Tim Lanning No Comments

I loved the original Dead Island . Its gameplay, much of it borrowed from Skyrim, fits right into the bleak zombie apocalypse environment. The ability to create your own personal zombie killing machine made it work well both as a single and multiplayer title. Add in features like weapon crafting and hundreds of quests and […]


Stealth Bastard Deluxe Review – Sneaky Sneaky, Jumpy Jumpy

Posted on: May 16th, 2013 by Michael Dao No Comments

By: Michael Dao Independent games can be fantastic, and in an age of where most of the titles that are released from the big publishers are either sequels, prequels, remakes, reboots, or make the use of licensed material, indie developers are a great way to play games that are refreshingly unique and that sometimes push […]


Battleblock Theater Review – Block Party

Posted on: May 13th, 2013 by Nick Bristow No Comments

We’ve come so far in terms of gaming. We have huge expansive worlds with amazing graphics, incredibly complex gameplay, but nothing quite compares to an extremely polished 2D platformer. It is one of the oldest genres of gaming and I am astonished by how much fun they can still be. If you’re a fan of […]


Star Command Review – More Like Snooze Command

Posted on: May 4th, 2013 by Michael Dao No Comments

By: Michael Dao Guys, Star Command is finally here. The story of Star Command is an interesting one, it managed to successfully fund not one but two Kickstarters, one for the mobile release and another for PC/Mac. The developers are well known for being, outspoken, shall we say, and the game was delayed a lot of times. Seriously. […]


Monaco Review – Redistributing Wealth

Posted on: April 24th, 2013 by Michael Dao No Comments

By: Michael Dao Monaco has to be one of the most eagerly awaited independent games in recent memory. In 2010, it won the Seumus McNally Grand Prize and the Excellence in Design award at the Independent Games Festival, and took Destructoid’s PAX Prime Must. Play. Award in 2012. Upon seeing it for the first time […]


Bioshock Infinite Review – Emotional Response

Posted on: April 9th, 2013 by Michael Dao No Comments

By: Michael Dao Bioshock Infinite is the third game in the Bioshock franchise. The first was a critical and financial success, known for its unique setting in the underwater city of Rapture, and was considered to be one of the finest examples of storytelling in modern interactive media. The second title, Bioshock 2, brought us […]


Guacamelee! Review – Pound it, Hombre

Posted on: April 9th, 2013 by Miranda Sanchez 2 Comments

What starts as a basic platformer button masher grows into a strategic, combo-dependent fighting game full of strategy and culture. DrinkBox Studio’s new platformer, Guacamelee! is a charming nod to the Mexican culture that is worth well more than it’s $15 price tag. The journey begins with Juan, a tequila-loving farmer who dreams of joining […]
