The Gamer’s Lounge Crew has put together a list of what they are hoping to pick up for Black Friday. Along the way, they are mentioning the “must buy” deals for video games on Black Friday, as well as which store has the best deal for consoles or the new AAA games.

Denis Murphy writes- During my recent review of Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, I mentioned how I'm a huge fan of the classic point-and-click adventure titles. Though my main example during that review was Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars, I also really enjoyed virtually anything from LucasArts. Whether it was Sam & Max Hit the Road, The Secret of Monkey Island or Full Throttle: Hell on Wheels, everything LucasArts released back in the day was literally perfect.

I have a confession: Until recently I had never so much as even tried Minecraft. Now before the mob calls for my head and gathers their pitchforks allow me to explain. I wasn't actively avoiding Minecraft and I certainly haven't been living under a rock for the past few years. It's just one of those games I never got around to. Time and money dictate all, and unless you grew up in circumstances similar to that of a young Bruce Wayne, I'm sure there are a good number of games out there that yo...

Akiba's Trip is a silly game and if you don't know what 'otaku' is it's likely not for you. That's because this game is equal parts parody of and love letter to otaku (see: hardcore fan of anime, manga, and the trappings that go with it) culture.

During summer and before our estate hired a tractor to come and cut it, the grass grew incredibly high on that hill. Even if I stood next to it, it would almost be up to my shoulders at its maximum height. When we ...

The debate about if games should qualify as art has raged on for a good while and is likely to continue for some time. Recently I've been giving the question some thought and because GameGrep is kind enough to afford me a platform on which to do so, I've decided to share my musings with all of you.

In my personal opinion the whole debate about whether or not games should qualify as art is a big bunch of malarky. Because to ask that question implies A. That every book ever written, movie ev...

Natural Doctrine is an interesting strategy RPG. It takes a very different approach to the SRPG genre and in some ways it's good and in some ways its bad. But don't take the game to lightly because even if you are a seasoned SRPG player this game will chew you up and spit you out before you ever know what happened.
