Engage All the Learning

HIGH Pulling off a complex series of environment manipulations without a hitch the first time.

LOW Knowing just enough of a puzzle solution's to solve it wrong. For hours.

WTF Some of the photographs have to be taken before the player is taught the photograph song.

Finally!

HIGH The Amazon's jumping animation.

LOW The incredibly finicky "shield" sidequest in the Wizard's Tower.

WTF None of the playable male characters show an inch of skin. (And the Dwarf's chest hidden underneath all that beard doesn't count!)

Postmortem: State of Decay

State of Decay Screenshot

It's no secret that State of Decay from Undead Labs has been one of my favorite games this year. Despite a lot of lackluster zombie-themed stuff overcrowding the market, these folks managed to bring an original vision and a brand-new twist to material that most people had already written off. Now that the dust has settled and the game has been out for a while, I figured it was the perfect time to check back in and do a little (har har) post-mortem Q&A on this groundbreaking survival title.

Muramasa Rebirth Review

Hack and Snooze

HIGH Saving courtesans from the clutches of evil.

LOW Not skipping the long and mostly pointless tutorial.

WTF Did I just do a 37-hit combo with two button presses?

Don't Starve Review

The First (But Not Only) Rule of Survival

Don't Starve Screenshot

HIGH Exploring a dangerous world, learning its mysteries, and succeeding where you've failed before.

LOW Dying and restarting a life that was going so well only moments ago.

WTF Purple tentacles grow from the ground and smack you in the face.

Capcom Arcade Cabinet Review

Mainlining Nostalgia

HIGH Black Tiger.

LOW Trojan.

WTF Who thought it was a good idea to include 3 versions of 1942?

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review

A Shift in Perspective

HIGH "Would you rather…"

LOW Wyatt's lightweight story.

WTF We don't see any of what happened after the stories but before the epilogue?

Seattle Retro Gaming Expo 2013

Seattle Retro Gaming Expo 2013

On July 13th and 14th, the Seattle Retro Gaming Expo was held at the Northwest Rooms on the grounds of the Seattle Center. Although I've attended the Portland gathering before, this was my first time checking out the scene in my own backyard, and it was a great time.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review

Call of Juarez: Humdinger

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Screenshot

HIGH Getting a high combo streak and topping it off by swerving out of the path of an otherwise fatal gunshot.

LOW The dueling is standard fare, and not much fun.

WTF According to Silas, he's crossed paths with nearly every notable figure from that time period.
