I ended up reviewing Superbrothers, which you can read here … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP isn't very new by video game standards, but it just released on the Nintendo Switch at the end of last month -- and just so happened to be the first time I'd ever played it. What's been described as an interactive prog-rock album is a wonderful adventure heavily rooted in … Continue reading [REVIEW] Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
The original Nidhogg escaped me entirely, so I went into Messhof Games' sequel on the Nintendo Switch with zero expectations.

Friday Saturday! Video games! Let's talk! I missed out on yesterday's wrap-up post due to a gnarly migraine, but I'm feeling better today and figured it was better late than never. Aside from my daily Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia log-ins, I've been slowly chipping away at Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk and putting … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?
