I’d heard great things about Fat City. I liked the plot, I liked the look and I liked the fact that it was a bit of a brain teaser. Leading a team of special ops personnel on some highly audacious heists sounded like heaven to me, ensuring that I’d need to use a bit of grey matter as opposed to my waning reflexes.
Telltale's CEO and co-founder Kevin Bruner recently told The Hollywood Reporter, “When we initially announced the series in 2013, we let everyone know this would be a multi-title, multiyear partnership with HBO. After this week's finale, I'm pleased to officially confirm that there will be a second season of Telltale's Game of Thrones series, and that it's currently in development.
Planned for release on PS4 and Vita Spring 2016, Darkest Dungeon challenges players with assembling a party of class-specific characters to battle wicked horrors in turn-based combat while managing stress levels, the effects of permadeath, and other brutal maladies.

"In this modern gaming world, it's rare to see a genre not as well represented as the others. Even if you have to dig a little, there is always something for everyone, whether your looking for horror, platformers, or even simulation games. There is one genre, however, that seems to be a dying breed, a genre that is struggling to find it's place in this day and age. That genre is the point and click style of games."
One Upon Light is a new indie top down puzzle/suspense game that puts you in the shoes of a scientist that, due to a series of unfortunate events, finds himself unable to set foot in light, and must slink through the shadows to get back to his lab to figure out what happened and how to reverse it. Ryan Johnson of The Gamer's Lounge helps you decide whether to let this one slink back into the shadows or shine some light on it, though those two descriptions may be backwards from what you think...
Corpse Party: Blood Drive is the third installment in the Corpse Party series. It comes after Corpse Party: Book of Shadows and the ending of that game is quickly summarized in the beginning of this one. It’s best to be familiar with the series before jumping into this 3D chibi anime style survival/horror game.
"The DJ Max games helped to put Nurijoy on the map with rhythm fans in the past, and SUPERBEAT: XONiC is an enjoyable addition to the genre. Everything from the fun songs to the colorful visuals that create an experience that is immediately familiar, but still fresh enough to be entertaining."
"What we’ve discovered up to this point is that this adventure with Rhys and Fiona could be the best of the Telltale Games series. With very few lowlights and a load of unforgettable highlights, can the series finish on a high by providing a solid finale in The Vault of the Traveler, befitting of the greatness that has gone before it?"
"The recent deluge of visual novels has me very excited. It is not necessarily one of my favorite genres, but it has been so under represented here in the west for far too long. Norn 9: Var Commons was actually a PSP title that never made its way over here, but now it finds new life on the PlayStation Vita, and the game works wonderfully."
Naughty Dog has taken the spotlight recently due to gaming marvel, The Last Of Us, The Nathan Drake collection and the upcoming (and much anticipated) release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. With all the praise and excitement received on behalf of these unquestionably awesome titles, it is almost as if we’ve forgotten that some time ago now, The Naughty Dog team presented us players with the greatest, most memorable platformer of all time, Crash Bandicoot.
The game’s aim was all but a simpl...
"Corpse Party: Blood Drive is one of those titles that will undoubtedly get sold short because of its middling visuals and sometimes slow pacing. However, that would be selling short the generally excellent writing and sense of tension that permeates the atmosphere throughout."
This weeks the gang is all here to talk about the Sony Paris press conference, Destiny, Yoshi’s Wooly World, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Life is Strange, Tales From The Borderlands, Minecraft, Rocket League, Rock Band 4, Guitar Hero Live, Uncharted Drake's Fortune, Metal Gear Solid Phantom Pain, Divinity: Original Sin, Nintendo NX, Star Wars and more!
"Many were skeptical when Persona 4: Dancing All Night was announced. Without a doubt, Persona 4 has proven to be the most marketable game in the long-running series to date, as evidenced by some of the chances taken with it. The original game was a hit (and awesome). However, Persona 4 Arena and Ultimax proved that the likable cast of characters could carry the series beyond just its RPG roots. Dancing All Night simply reinforces that notion."
"Nostalgia is huge in the gaming community right now, and The Men Who Wear Many Hats have tapped into that with their recent release of Organ Trail Complete Edition. I was one of those fortunate youths who use to play Oregon Trail on their Apple IIe and I loved that game."
Corpse Party: Blood Drive, the latest offering in the supernatural series, sacrifices originality for the sake of marginal improvements. Despite my enthusiasm for more paranormal sightings and deceased teens, my intolerance for technical flaws tarnished the game’s appeal. Blood Drive should be the sequel that followers thirsted for, with characters returning to the murder-happy Heavenly Host Elementary in three dimensions. I expected larger environments, more detailed heroes and horrors, and ...
