BOUND

I’d pondered getting this game when I saw it on STEAM but never got around to picking it up. But when I reviewed the free games for November on Playstation Plus, I found it shining amongst a plethora of… less good games. The game begins with your avatar, the Princess, being told by the Queen that a monster is destroying her kingdom and that you must bring an end to it. As you move to the door that’s revealed to you on the far side of the throne room, you notice something. The Princess doesn’t walk but dances. Every movement,… [Continue Reading]

Yooka-Laylee

I’d been meaning to play this game for a long time but with multiplayer and co-op grabbing my attention so thoroughly it got left by the wayside for a very long time. But then- It continued to get left by the wayside for even longer because the prior statement didn’t change. But THEN, a massive thunderstorm came along, very cross with my inability to focus on diminishing my single-player backlog and zapped my internet provider so hard they exploded! Although I can’t confirm the validity of this story, I do remember my internet being gone for about a month so… [Continue Reading]

Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee free on GOG.com

There’s a free game currently available in GOG’s big sale. There have been a few games for free lately and you should probably go have a look.

Ever felt like becoming a colon and travelling back in time to discover the origins of the written word and the future of typography? Of course you haven’t, because that would be insane. But if you’ve ever wanted to accomplish such a feat while also being in the guise of a platformer, then boy, do I have an oddly specific game for you… You should probably see a therapist. All the levels are based on fonts that were famous during their respective time period. You roll, jump and rotate around levels constructed out of individual letters, grabbing the letters of… [Continue Reading]

Mute Crimson-

It says something about the state this game left me in when I bought it in 2015 and finished it in 2017. The thing is, when I returned to it, I couldn’t remember why I’d originally stopped playing. Repressed memories are a funny (and slightly terrifying) thing. But before we get to that, let’s cover the basics. Mute Crimson+┬áis a hard as nails platformer bringing something akin of the original Ninja Gaiden to the modern-day with significantly less cheap BS. but maintaining the level of difficulty that had established its reputation. Seeing this and identifying it as a challenge, I… [Continue Reading]

I Am The Ultimate Raccoon

I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but I’m a liar. I have fooled all of you. I am not a wolf, but a raccoon. Not only that, but I am the ultimate raccoon. Well, at least according to Ultimate Chicken Horse, which I’m sure you smart folks already know is a plentiful and unending fountain of credible scientific data. I’ve learnt so much already, such as all the many athletic capabilities of my friends and I, the many contraptions that may harm us during our friendly races, oh… And that we’re cursed with immortality within a realm run… [Continue Reading]
