The Mummy: Demastered Review

I expect better from you, WayForward.

I don’t know about you, but when I hear about an indie developed game sporting a pseudo-16-bit pixel aesthetic I find myself rolling my eyes. This goes double when said game is an action/exploration game (“Metroidvania” if you’re lazy). I just find these types of games to be played out. However, if you tell me that WayForward is working on the game you pique my interest enough to plunk down twenty bucks on The Mummy: Demastered, a game I hadn’t heard of. Was my curiosity rewarded? Ehhh…

Nerds Without Pants Episode 121: This One Gets a Bit (Digital) and Dicey

Come for the Digital and Dice guys. Stay for Angelo's colossal failure.

Welcome, welcome, to the biggest episode of Nerds Without Pants…EVER. No, really, we have all three of the guys from the Digital and Dice podcast, resulting in chaos, hilarity, and tons of conversation derailments as we talk about the most overrated games of all time. Look forward to Angelo’s number one…it’s a doozy! In Chrono Crossing, we go back to 1988 for an eclectic set of picks.

Metroid II: Return of Samus Review Rewind

Back for the first time

Nintendo is no stranger to making risky decisions that could have resulted in utter failure. After all, they released the Famicom\NES during a time when the consumer market shunned video games. Then there was that time in 2004 when most of us thought they were crazy when they announced the dual screen handheld DS. And many were skeptical when motion controls were introduced on the Wii console. Nonetheless, their decisions proved to be a significant success. Such was the case with the early Metroid series.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 114: Tropes vs NWP in Video Games

No, no, come back! We aren't talking about THOSE tropes...

It’s time for another episode of Nerds Without Pants, and for some reason Julian just can’t be bothered. Maybe it’s because he edited so hard for you last time. Maybe it’s because he’s getting ready for E3. Whatever the case, Angelo is there to take the lead for Stage Select, so let’s go!

Batman: A Telltale Games Series Review

Press X to Batman.

By now, we’re all aware of the joke: if you own an intellectual property of any import, Telltale will make a game based on it. Telltale adventure games are quickly becoming the Funko Pops of the video game world, but just like those big-headed collectibles, there is no denying their popularity. Enter Batman: The Telltale Series. Is this “just” another Telltale game? Well, yes, of course it is. That shouldn’t suggest that it isn’t worth your time, though.

Firewatch Review

Finally, a game starring a middle-aged schlub that I can identify with!

We’re in a unique situation with video games right now. While there is a perceived waning interest in big “triple-A” releases (for a variety of reasons), the industry has reached a place where smaller and more personal tales can be told. These games take a multitude of forms, and as I mentioned in my review for Virginia, a new “day in the life” genre has popped up recently. Firewatch is certainly one of those games, and it is one that came along at just the right time for me.
