Review: Legend of Grimrock

As generations of videogame consoles come and go we see vast improvements in many categories: graphics get a huge overhaul, the complexities of gameplay increases, and entire genres are redone to take advantage of each new system’s capabilities. A few casualties are left behind in this transition  like the point-and-click adventure game, 2D platformers, and dungeon crawling role-playing games. However each generation has a select few titles that stubbornly stick to the old formula and emulate the magic of games past, which is the case with Legend of Grimrock for the PC. A difficult, retro style RPG, Legend of Grimrock challenges players to fight for their freedom and escape from Mount Grimrock or be left to rot like countless others.

Review: Yesterday

Can you tell me everything you did yesterday? And I do mean everything: did you eat two slices of pizza for dinner or three? Did you wear a blue shirt or a white shirt? Did you jump off a silo and crash through the window of a building?

Yesterday is a point-and-click adventure game that’s full of mystery, murder, and one man’s resolve to find out who he really is. It’s not too often you see this style of game nowadays, but Yesterday does give players a unique experience, even if it’s one that’s far too short.

The Humble Indie Bundle and Why You Should Buy It

As the holiday season is already in full swing and Christmas is right around the corner, I have been in a spirited mood as of late. No doubt many people like the holidays because of the gifts they’ll receive (I know love it for that reason), but an equal or greater number of people like to give more than receive. As 2011 comes to an end, we as gamers can help out those that really need it this holiday season, and we can score some truly amazing games in the process.

Review: The Binding of Isaac

What do you get when you mix The Legend of Zelda and Robotron with a dash of randomly generated dungeons? Not a super violent top-down Zelda game, but the super violent top-down dungeon crawler from Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl of the team behind brutal indie puzzler Super Meat Boy. Based off the biblical story of the same name, The Binding of Isaac is a “roguelike” top-down shooter that mixes several elements from other games with a grotesquely disturbing setting that works well. The Binding of Isaac is truly the stuff of nightmares and is not for the easily offended.

Only two downloaded titles come through this week as new purchases. The first is The Binding of Isaac, an indie title released on Steam from part of the creative team behind Super Meat Boy. The second is a PSN exclusive adventure-shooter Rochard, that I can only describe as the PS3’s Shadow Complex with more puzzles.
