Tony Plays: Viscera Cleanup Detail

I remember catching this game on stream at work and going…”Hold up. Are they on the Event Horizon?” I had to know what that game was. A chance to explore that awesome ship? I’m always curious when I’m watching a sci-fi movie. They try not to show too much, which is good, it helps create an atmosphere, but I can’t help but think: “Man, i wanna see what’s in that room….lemme mess with some knobs and shit!” This game kinda affords that...

Artist Spotlight: Tommy Harbour

Tommy Harbour…AKA “Spooky Boy”….AKA “Oregano Tommy”….AKA “This Fuckin’ Guy”. I’ve know this dude for…..over a decade or so? Jesus Christ.    Tommy surrounds himself with toys, posters, comics, movies, video games…..NERD CLUTTER. He is ALL UP IN all that stuff. He tattoos nerdy things upon himself. He probably has nightmares about being in an empty room while wearing khaki pants. Tommy doesn’t only enjoy the...

Review: Dropsy (PC)

I saw a preview for this game a few months back and I was intrigued by the art, with its creepy 90’s look, and got even more excited when I realized it was a point-and-click adventure, cause that’s my shit. I told Richard (King Glitchslap) about this game, and that I was gonna review it, to which he replied: “You’re so weird. I love it.” Is it weird? To be into games about clowns? Yeah, that’s….pretty weird. Fair enough, Richard....

Angry Birds 2: An Exercise in Patience

My first Angry Birds 2 gaming session was in the most appropriate setting for this particular series:  The Shitter. I initially went into this planning to shit all over it, but ya know what, let’s give this a fair shot. The art looks nice. The production shows improvement from past Angry Birds games that I’ve played and they seem to have stepped it up on the bells and whistles. Angry Birds made 10.7 million dollars in...

Maybe You Missed It: Mission: Impossible (NES)

I’ve mentioned this game to a few people, but none of them seem to remember it. As a child, I HAD this game. I don’t recall how I obtained it, but I do remember excitedly describing the box to my dad and proclaiming: *gruff voice* “You gotta pick the right man for the mission!” This game whooped my ass for years as a kid. Now I’m grown and I’m ready to take on this beast again. I fire it up, the first level begins, and I immediately...

Free For Playstation Plus Members In July: rain (PS3)

rain is free for Playstation Plus members this month. Good news for me, as I’m still a Playstation 3 player and I’ve been a tad bit let down by recent offerings. Not to say there haven’t been some good games up for grabs, it’s simply been stuff I’ve played already. So, when I saw a game with an “indie feel”, I lit up. rain isn’t necessarily an indie game, as it was developed by SCE Japan...

New on Steam This Week: The Bug Butcher

The Bug Butcher, courtesy of Austria based Awfully Nice Studios, is new to Steam this week. Awfully Nice consists of former Blizzard co-workers:  Till Aschwanden and Rainer Zoettl. This is the only game listed on their website, so I assume this is their first release. This game bears an obvious resemblance to the Capcom classic Buster Bros., which featured gameplay where you shoot balls in the air with a harpoon gun, each shot...

Yeah, I Nibble

I turn on Nibbles and, right away, my senses are assaulted. It’s like the intro to Enter the Void or Funny Games, but even worse! It’s overwhelming. If I follow the red dots with my eyes, I am able to temporarily cling to my sanity, but if I falter for even a moment, I enter a world of chaos within my own mind…..but I must press on. 4-way controls? I’m not a virtuoso. Left and right are what I’m accustomed to. I’ll give it a whirl,...
