If you really need more ’80s nostalgia, here’s The Videokid.  Yes, the The proves it’s The Videokid and not some imitation.  Pixel Trip Studios’s retro-ish romp through radical-ville is a scrolling skating game for points and big-bang glory.  Need I say more?

Gamevice Controller — God’s Gift to Gamers

Gaming on phones isn’t exactly ergonomical.  Quite painful sometimes.  But we gamers must game.  Sore shoulders and stiff wrists are the price we pay. Luckily, there’s the Gamevice Controller. Portable, light, fits right where it should be.  No protruding Xbox-esqe controller.  It’s natural, organic and works like the real thing. Been solid on iPhone 6. … Read More »

Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game Winter Trailer — Get your Lovecraftian fix

Ghost Recon Wildlands Gameplay Video — Operation Skydive Extraction

Ghost Recon was my go-to game back in the day.  I’m talking about the first Ghost Recon on the original Xbox.  Six guys, two teams and 49 bad guys.  Yup, 49.  You can count them (and their bodies).  No spawning endlessly like Ghost Recon 2.  That was the Ghost Recon that shouldn’t have changed. But… Read More »
