Portland Nostalgia Exp… I Mean, Portland Retro Gaming Expo

October 21, 2015. The day Marty Mclfy arrived in the delorean with Doc Brown to save his kids from going to jail. Also in October of 2015 is the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, a place that will make you feel like you’ve been sent back to 1985. With all the pinball machines and booths selling old Nintendo and Atari games, and music like David Bowie and Europe playing through the convention center, I had to retrace my steps in my...

First Look: Drawn to Death

Free to play games usually come with some kind of catch. You have to pay real money later or it just takes forever to get anything accomplished. Luckily, David Jaffe and the rest of his crew over at The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency have a different definition of free to play. They believe that their game should just be free. No gimmicks or tricks, just free. A full game with no handicaps that make the game more...

Konami’s Sinking Ship

Konami took itself off the NYSE last Friday after they realized there was a very low volume of stocks being traded on the American market. Konami is maintaining its stocks in the Tokyo and London markets, but it seems the good ol’ U.S. of A. isn’t having it anymore. As a long time lover of Konami games, I found the news of Hideo Kojima leaving Konami quite disheartening. This might have something to do with why they...

Maybe You Missed It: South Park: The Stick of Truth

If you’ve had the itch to play an old school, turn-based rpg, then look no further. Its time to see who missed out on the gem that is The Stick of Truth! The turn-based gameplay I’m sure turned a lot of people off in the beginning, but this game definitely delivers. Action packed cut scenes bring all the antics you expect from South Park, putting the game together like one long episode. With cameos from just about every...

Clutch Con 2015: Dive In!

Opening day of Clutch Con experienced its fair share of problems. Actually, it was only one problem; the network went down and no one could seem to get it working again. Gamers made due with the time they’re not spending playing CS:GO and League of Legends. There were drinks and bags (or cornhole if you’re dumb) going on and some gamers had resorted to setting up their own LAN on the long tables to “get the party...

First Thoughts: Dragonball Xenoverse

I recently picked up a copy of Dragonball Xenoverse after hearing they had redone the play mechanics specifically for this game. After checking every store in a 5 mile radius from my house, I finally found a copy, instilling a sense that i had just picked up a fantastic game. Overall, I¬†was not blown away, but it’s beautiful and for an rpg fighting game with as many character customization options, it does just fine. Out the...

Maybe You Missed It: Zone of the Enders HD Collection

With all the HD remakes coming out for games that were already released in HD, I figured someone needed to bring up something a little older. Zone of the Enders: HD Collection was way overdue for its HD re-release in October of 2012, but it was definitely not one to be missed, and if you did, maybe its time to go back and check it out.   The first game in the bundle, Zone of the Enders, is probably one of those games that still...
