Review: BOOR

by Febronia Armiaon March 11, 2017
BOOR is a puzzle oriented platformer, that seems to draw inspiration from games like Limbo and Ori & The Blind forest for its environment design and is reminiscent of some of games like Braid in terms of the mechanics. BOOR takes place on Eden, a colony for humans where things seem to be going alright until they […]

Review: Copy Kitty

by Febronia Armiaon September 19, 2016
Copy Kitty is a platforming action mess of an indie game. I mean that in the best way. Copy Kitty looks like the kind of game you approach because you have few dollars left in your wallet only to be surprised by the degree of depth it has to offer. A child-appropriate exterior covers for […]

Review: Inversus

by Febronia Armiaon September 3, 2016
If you’re looking for an action strategy type arcade shooter in the vein of geometry wars minus the colors, Inversus is your one stop shop for that. The highly addictive, controller compatible, indie game hasn’t been released for too long and already has an active community dominating leaderboards. With what seems to be a dedicated […]

Review: Headlander

by Febronia Armiaon August 16, 2016
Double Fine are a great studio, none of their games seem to be anything like the other, yet they consistently maintain pretty sweet standards. I’m a big fan of their stuff and Tim Schafer. I loved Brutal Legend, Grim Fandango, The Cave, Broken Age and basically anything I’ve tried for them. Then I heard about […]

Review: Muv-Luv

by Febronia Armiaon July 31, 2016
My entire run-in with romance-centric sims basically revolves around marrying the dude with the nicest house in the Sims or juggling as many casual dates as I could to help my highly unspecialized stats in Persona 3 FES. All my other experiences with romance in video games have been side-stuff in RPGS for the sake […]

Review: Tick’s Takes: Up All Knight

by Febronia Armiaon June 27, 2016
Point and click games are very generally a hit or miss. There are good games that entirely miss their mark because the right audience wasn’t playing them and then there are games that are pretty sub par that end up garnering some decent reviews because the stars aligned, allowing some nonsense element of the game […]

Review: Koihime Enbu

by Febronia Armiaon June 5, 2016
I don’t know if this is a common thing that tends to happen, but I for one have this avid refusal to play male characters in a fighting game if there are female characters available. This itch prevails even if the male characters are in a higher abundance or allow for a better play style suitable […]

Preview: The Kindred

by Febronia Armiaon May 1, 2016
It’s really no secret that colony management or base survival games are a ton of fun and they’re very clearly becoming more and more popular. I would say that is pretty evident in the fact that RPGs are even starting to include that aspect as part of the bigger game (See Fallout 4 and the […]

Review: Blood Alloy Reborn

by Febronia Armiaon March 16, 2016
Firstly, let me start by saying this: you tell me there’s a game with a female protagonist that involves you hacking and slashing through various robots in a cyberpunk-esque inspired environment, you’re basically singing my song so obviously it’s needless to say after a glance at what Blood Alloy: Reborn has to offer on their […]

Sexism in Gaming: When Sexy becomes Sexist

by Febronia Armiaon July 23, 2013
Being a gamer located in the Middle East means that some of the stereotypes that I have to endure are somewhat different than what the global community has to face, including the insane focus this region seems to have on Call of Duty instead of a variety of other excellent FPSs available on just about […]
