Once upon a time, he wrote for oprainfall. Now, he's scraping off the rust to get back into writing about the games he loves.

And then along came Residual from Orangepixel, blending platformer, survival, and even some light puzzling. I can’t say that I’ve…

Rogue-like Deckbuilder Inscryption Thrills and Chills

Inscryption Preview: Wait, a Deckbuilder AND an Escape Room Game?   Deckbuilders. They’re my weakness. I can’t get enough of them. You can thank Slay the Spire for my ever-growing addiction to this genre. So the opportunity to give the demo of Devolver Digital and Daniel Mullins Games’ Inscryption…

SkateBIRD Review (Switch)

SkateBIRD Review: This One’s For the Birds   My experience with skating games is… limited, to say the least. In fact, I don’t think that I’ve played a skater since the days of Tony Hawk on the N64. And, to be embarrassingly honest, I was absolutely, definitively not good,…
