Never Alone – A unique must-play experience

Never Alone is one of those games that I saw at PAX Prime earlier this year which looked interesting but had such a long line that I never actually got to try. I’m certainly glad we received a review key for it and I’m also a bit sad that I hadn’t

World of Warcraft – I Thought I Missed You

With the upcoming 10th anniversary of World of Warcraft coming up this month as well as this week’s release of the new expansion, Warlords of Draenor, it seemed like a good time to make a return to Azeroth after years away. My subscription had officially ended back in 2011, though

13th Age Contest: The White and the Wizard King

I only recently discovered the Iconic Podcast, a show dedicated to my favorite edition of D&D: 13th Age. Not only do they interview the big players in the 13th Age scene including the game’s co-creator Rob Heinsoo, but it’s refreshing to hear a gaming podcast really drill down into the mechanics of a particular game in

Guillotine: Decapitation for Fun and Profit

A few weeks ago I blogged about Lunch Money, a favorite card game of mine and one of the single-deck games that weaned me from my Magic: the Gathering addiction. Today I’d like to introduce another of those single-deck games that’s easier to play and only slightly less morbid: Guillotine. Guillotine was originally released by Magic wranglers

Take a trip back in time with The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified was released back in August 2013, but I finally got my hands on it recently due to an awesome sale on Steam. The game got only meh reviews when it came out, but I had a chance to play it briefly back at PAX 13 and it

Evolve – Thoughts on the Big Alpha

I spent some time over this weekend playing the Evolve Big Alpha. I’m not sure how many hours (Steam has made that so simple…) I spent playing, but I certainly have quite a few opinions about that time. It’s a cool concept and visually awesome, but it just didn’t resonate

Sneaky Sneaky – Cute and stabby!

Have you heard of Sneaky Sneaky? I sure hadn’t until I got a preview key for it. I was told that it was a turn-based stealth adventure game and it seemed to involve a rogue or thief, so that was good enough for me. I happen to like being stealthy,

Review: Lunch Money

Lunch Money taps into that inner Catholic schoolgirl revenge fantasy inside all of us… My progression with cards and card games was mostly an economic one. I started out collecting baseball cards, which was fun when I also went to baseball games. In high school I stopped going to games and

Gabriel Knight Sins of the Fathers – The Game I Remembered

We’ve talked a few times on the Dorkadia Podcast about what was your first game that really gave you a thirst for more, and I could easily talk for hours on how awesome Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers was back in the day. My brother came home with a stack of floppy

Rocking the old school Zelda games

After being on AAA-title overload for the last few weeks, it seemed like a great time to get back to basics. My wife and I had recently sat down and gone back through the original Legend of Zelda during my Destiny addiction, so for an encore we figured this was
