BIOTA is a One of A Kind Retro Game Made by Expert Indie Lovers REVIEW

I’m going to try something new here. I have been known to review demos in the past, but they get kind of buried under other projects. I really want to dedicate time to as many as I’d like to. All things relevant, I made a post on Twitter about needing to play for Game Boy-style indies. I got a great tip from cshPinecone of Indie Game Collective about the game BIOTA from “small… Read the rest

Bebop and Rocksteady Make a Terrific & Toxic Duo REVIEW

Well, I guess this review is going to be a trial attempt at an idea I’ve had, one to take on the legendary TMNT duo Bebop and Rocksteady. It takes me days to churn out a full-volume review, which I don’t really mind or anything, but it’s nice to just pick something up for about the length it takes me to create solo dev showcases. Anyway, whatever, so today I’m taking a look… Read the rest

Ninja Turtles Funko T-Shirt and Ghostbusters DVD

I read in the news that shipping bottlenecks are uncomfortably poignant this year. It’s like every time we get some new way to make things faster, the system gets flooded by shoppers. I wondered even if I should order anything at all. In the process of doing some gift shopping, however, I saw I could get some more stuff for free shipping. So, I picked up this Funko Pop Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles… Read the rest

Ghostbusters are Back and Even Better in Their New Game REVIEW

Nobody asked for a Ghostbusters Video Game Remastered review in 2021, especially from a guy who reviews indie games. It’s sure to be overshadowed by the mega Afterlife release coverage, but maybe, just maybe, you weren’t sure who to call. So, that’s where I spawn my digital specter presence and declare, “No, Mr. Parker, no I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts.” I’m not sure if there’s anybody on the planet who has never… Read the rest

Quantum Leap – Last Call at Al’s: A Tribute to Dean Stockwell

One of the best actors in Hollywood passed away in the past couple of days at age 85. Dean Stockwell, the actor/artist/environmentalist/cigar-enthusiast, is notably remembered for his role as Al Calavicci in the ’80s/’90s TV time travel show Quantum Leap. I had always intended to talk about Quantum Leap here somewhere since it is one of the most influential productions I have ever spent time with, “within my own lifetime.” With the news… Read the rest

“Cyberpunk” as a Genre And Not Just 2077

It’s everywhere now. It’s downloaded into your cortex. Drips off the neon katakana of your tube hotel vacancy sign. It’s hidden in the channel tuned to static on your peripheral, cyphered, cybernetic headset. It provides the foundation as well as the motivation for things high above its paygrade, but it is still only a literary genre–beyond video games. “Cyberpunk.” I’m talking sim stim, black mesa stuff here, not Grand Theft Hovercar. It’s very… Read the rest
