Xbox Game Pass is a Fantastic Inexpensive Service You Need NOW if You Game

In this article, I’ll show you how to get Xbox Game Pass on PC. If you thought that Xbox Game Pass was a console-only service, it’s actually available on Windows PCs too! I’ve been using Xbox Game Pass on PC for about a year now. Although I’ve paused my account a few times, it has been one of my top resources. Xbox Game Pass is a service from Microsoft’s Xbox that makes available… Read the rest

Village Monsters Will Make You Smile

Village Monsters is a solo dev project from Josh Bosser. It’s a pixel art town sim that departs from conventional titles with an alternative community of friendly monsters. The game plays on similar genre themes as Stardew Valley but the content goes into the outsider/quirk genre of games with its monster acceptance communicated in each character’s unconventional friendliness. It departs from too much comparison by offering a vast amount of exclusive unique story… Read the rest

Moonglow Bay is a Super Maritimes Themed Fishing Game

I’m a big fan of fishing in games, but even more so a good story involving it. Moonglow Bay has done it. It’s a story about a retired fisher getting back out there. It is also about settling a community’s superstitions and getting back to the foundation of their livelihood. The story takes place in a traditional Eastern Canadian seaboard fishing village in the 80s. It is otherwise perfectly afloat in its conventional… Read the rest

Moonlighter is a Much Better Game Than I Thought

Inked: A Tale of Love Is a New Hand-Drawn Game

Well, here I am, back to keep things fresh here with a showcase for Inked: A Tale of Love I have the privilege of receiving a review copy for what was originally a PC game, now out on Switch, Xbox, and Playstation. Today I tested out the Switch version on the handheld mode and made my way through the first couple of chapters to see how well the transition has been (plus promote… Read the rest

Greak is a Unique New Type of Game World

Amongst the trove of pale-skinned characters, glowing misty caverns, and punchy character abilities, this one might be new to you. Greak: Memories of Azur is similar to platformers like Hollow Knight and Undertale, perhaps even Ori or maybe Hoa, sure. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of any of those! What Greak offers is a borderline cozy adventure with very unique, engaging gameplay that is an experience of its own. Greak, Adara, and… Read the rest

The Gunk is the New Alien World Game On Game Pass

Discovered through Game Pass, I’m rather fond of this new title, The Gunk, from Image and Form/Thunderful Development, which just launched a few days ago. It fits neatly into the category of games I usually enjoy which are casual character development, soft sci-fi, and familiar mechanics of resource-collecting games. And this version of those styles is well presented here. While the game is really very straightforward without much need for introduction, a quality… Read the rest

We’re going back to Hogwarts in 2023, everybody, and it looks downright magical. Expecto Patronum!!!!! So far what we know is that this will be an open-world RPG. It will take place in and out of Hogwarts in the Wizarding… Read the rest

Power Rangers Battle for the Grid is a Morphin’ Good Time

The Power Rangers Battle for the Grid DLC packs showed up on Steam today. While the DLC’s don’t interest me yet, I did remember I have been eager and hopeful about the core game which is available on Xbox Gamepass, and I knew what I had to do, review the core game! It’s not accurate to sort Power Rangers into any category I decided. This is because it’s a phenomenon in and of… Read the rest

Learn about theoretical technologies as well as real ones and how they interplay in our future on Mars. Within this context, it is a game about exploration and survival! Surviving Mars:… Read the rest

Minecraft is The Best Game to Inspire Creativity Ever

Minecraft rocks. It blocks and rolls. I first played this game around I want to say 2009. People in my social circle were going bonkers for this game. Or “bonkies” as I now want to say, but that’s unrelated. I was really hesitant because it seemed to short-circuit my interest in sandbox gameplay with how I felt about low-res graphics. It’s basically still that way, but this is one of the most popular… Read the rest

Carto: Pieces of the Map is a Terrific Exploration Indie You Need to Try

Finally, my love of tile board games like Carcassonne has been revived. But it’s completely different mind you. Carto is a tile-placement puzzle released to much praise last year. My first impressions were very positive, but I set them aside until today. It’s a terrific game! While it’s probably the best adjective, I’m not really fond of describing games as cute anymore, because there are so many vocabularic adjectives for a game of… Read the rest

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is the Best LEGO Marvel Game

The subtitle “It’s All Here” says it all. I’ve tried a few Marvel games over the years, and I’ve seen a good handful of the movies. Never really delved into the comics, but I feel they are well represented in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. I went into this game thinking maybe it’d be isolated to Avengers characters without much divergence. There are PLENTY of Marvel Heroes in this game though, and you’ll… Read the rest

Slime Rancher, the Original Game, is the One That Started it All

You’re an adventurous protagonist named Beatrix who has settled down on her uncle’s ranch on an alien planet where the landscape is occupied by canyons of shiny cute blobs of a variety of species and value. Also some chickens. Which… some slimes eat. Moving on. Yer not from around here, are you? So, what is the point of this? Or the goal, to be a little more specific. Well, it’s basically a high-quality… Read the rest

The LEGO Harry Potter Game Is The Best LEGO Game

Welcome to Hogwarts! Okay, it usually takes a chapter to get there in the books, but the welcome is there. I’m about to tell you about one of the most fan-driven franchises you’ve ever heard of, “Harry Potter!” Oh, you’ve heard of that one…? Okay… Have you ever heard of “LEGO!” That one too? Okay, GOOD!? It’s time for my LEGO Harry Potter poetic ode. I’m not totally certain when it started, but… Read the rest
