Pete Reviews – Abzu

Baasvik is here to take a steaming crap on Abzu and tell you why this isn’t necessarily the proper use of the video game medium. There are some skits, and some boring stuff about video games. But there are skits.

‘Pony Island’ Review

2016 is off and running and of course I’m playing a game about ponies, the devil, and messaging systems. I really feel like this is going to be the year of the in-game instant messenger. It’s about time. This may be the only one, however, which has the IM chats be between you and demons.…

‘Fallout 4’ Review

I don’t often revisit games from my younger years. I often avoid them for a reason. It is not unlikely that in all of the years that have gone by I have become influenced by a wider-eyed version of me who found the years of 2007-2010 the most interesting in all of gaming. One of…

’80 Days’ Review

There has always been something magical about choose-your-own adventure books. My first exposure was with the “Give Yourself Goosebumps” series and I remember flipping back pages because I had died in the story. The whole choose-your-own adventure thing had gone by the wayside as media advanced. There was a small niche of video games that…

‘Castle’ Review

Turns out building castles is insanely difficult. If you had a chance to check out our Indie Taste Test of ‘Castle’, you probably were thinking castle-building was a task for children. Mere mortals build castles. Why should I build castles? I’m half-god! Well you’re wrong on so many levels. Because castle-building can be next to…

‘A Bird Story’ Review

With open arms and a cold-heart, I embraced ‘To the Moon‘, which was my first exposure to storyteller Kan Gao, of Freebird Games, and his mystical way of telling heartfelt tales through pixel art. ‘To the Moon’ was a swift and well-designed effort to humanize video game characters, without having them murdering everything in sight on…

‘Artisan Going Home Again’ Review

As far as weirdest games that I could be playing at any moment in time, ‘Artisan Going Home Again’ ranks among the weirdest. ‘Artisan’ is not inherently weird, but me playing it is probably a peculiar sight. However, regardless of what me playing ‘Artisan’ looks like, there are some really solid elements that make for…

‘Coin Crypt’ Review

When it came out in 2009, Dominion redefined most of what I knew about board games. I was playing tons of Magic:The Gathering at the time, but was sick of the crazy money sink I would have to put into a draft each week. $15 a week is a ton of money, especially when you’re not…

‘Bayonetta 2’ Review

I don’t smile all that often. I try to stay somber as much as possible because it’s a fine way to keep people’s expectations low. Unfortunately, ‘Bayonetta 2’ came out and I couldn’t help but smile for 9 hours or so. ‘Bayonetta 2’ was shocking to me, because it was very low on my radar in…

‘Race the Sun’ Review

A long time ago I was writing budget gaming articles for Indie Game Mag. During that time I called out to developers producing anything budget-minded or free to put in the feature. One of those developers was this rapscallion duo of brothers producing something called ‘Race the Sun’. The game was a free game on…

‘Destiny’ Review

If you listen to our podcast at all, you know that at one point I was skeptical of ‘Destiny’, and then bought it and remained confused by the product package. Let’s list what we’re looking at here. Sci-fi, Bungie, shooter, MMO, RPG, everything you ever dreamed of, and the best game of 2014 award it…

‘Dark Souls 2’ Review- You Defeated

Every task you begin in life has some level of challenge, dedication, and investment needed to complete. Regardless of what you do you are working towards some level of accomplishment. Occasionally, it feels as though the rewards were not worth the investment, that countless hours of input warranted little output. Unfortunately, that is a common…

‘Intake’ Review

Let me prepare you for ‘Intake’ with two quick words: WUB WUB! That’s right my friends, you’re about to go Dubsteppy. Nope, it’s not the Dubpocalypse, it is just ‘Intake’, an at first unassuming arcade effort from he dudes and ladies at Cipher Prime. They’re the people who made ‘Splice‘ and ‘Fractal‘, two fantastic games. Needless…

‘InFlux’ Review

A few weeks ago I received a copy of ‘InFlux‘.  I had been craving a puzzle game for a while, so I dove right in.  What I found was a unique mix of environmental platformer and puzzler that left me confused about my feelings, my expectations, and a host of other things.  This confusion stuck…

‘Heroes of Loot’ Review

Dungeon games used to be a grim affair. They were dark, scary, and intensely challenging. Games such as ‘Baldur’s Gate’, a hallmark in early PC dungeon crawling, come to mind. In the modern day, however, dungeons have taken on a lighter feel. Now dungeons aren’t so horrifying! They can even include a sense of humor,…

‘Super Hexagon’ Gets Reviewed (PC/Mac Version)

The Steam release of ‘Super Hexagon’ today is not the first release of the arcade title. In fact, it was released awhile ago in past times to some pretty rave reviews. Unfortunately, for beings such as myself with only a PC and Windows Phone, it was only seen for iPhone, which is some dastardly device…

‘Kairo’ Review

Not all too often does a game dictate my mood. They often make me joyous, but can also seriously upset me. The great games make me think, while the bad ones treat me like I neither know nor need anything. ‘Kairo’ definitely made me think, but it left me in a middle ground emotionally, wondering…
