Doom multiplayer is kinda meh.

The Doom open beta finished up this past weekend after several days of minimal fanfare. I don’t have the actual numbers of participants, but the majority of my personal friends weren’t aware that it was happening. With its time now […]

Destiny Crimson Days – Why do I do this to myself?

This week is a very special week in Destiny. The newest bit of micro-content has gone live in the form of Crimson Days. It’s like Bungie’s very own vicious valentine to the player base that still remains in their flagship […]

Temporal abyss – My latest time killing mobile obsessions

I haven’t been doing a whole lot of big gaming recently. Anything I have been doing, I’ve also been streaming over on the DorkadiaPlays channel over on Twitch. While there will certainly be more reviews for those games as I […]

Destiny Kart – The Sparrow Racing League

Okay, maybe Destiny Kart isn’t as accurate as Wipeout without guns. In either case, I’ve been checking out Destiny‘s latest limited time event, the Sparrow Racing League. It’s certainly an entertaining distraction from the normal grind of raids or pvp […]

Crawling out through the Fallout

As of this morning, Steam tells me that I’ve played 144 hours of Fallout 4. Since the game was released just over three weeks ago, that means I’ve been spending as much (or more) playing it as I do going […]

Is 20XX the next Mega Man?

Diving into early access titles on Steam can often be a mixed bag. Games still in development run the gamut from nearly finished to having more bugs than the disgusting innards of Oogie Boogie. Luckily, 20XX is more the former than the latter. […]

Destiny surprises me again!

Destiny has been a bit of a mixed bag for me from the start. I loved the shiny space epic, but then I learned to hate the PvP. I improved enough in PvP to earn Thorn, but now it’s best […]

Assault Android Cactus – Bring on the bad guys!

From time to time I like to push myself to the limits of my ability to comprehend what’s actually happening on screen in a game. Lately, I’ve been doing that with a frenetic little game called Assault Android Cactus from indie studio […]

Show me to your (Taken) King

We are only a few days from the release of Destiny‘s latest expansion, The Taken King and I have been spending a lot of time getting my characters prepared. I’ll admit that I had been excited about House of Wolves almost solely […]

PAX Prime 2015 – Darkest Dungeon, The Cove

I wish I wasn’t so predictable. Those with media badges get special early access to the expo floor on the first day of PAX. Wide open and filled with glittering lights, walking onto the floor during that first hour of exclusive access is like […]

PAX Prime 2015 – Indie Highlights Day 2

I’m not going to waste any time jumping into the rest of my indie game picks from PAX Prime 2015. The more time I spend in this wonderful air conditioned room chilling out without shoes on the less time I have for […]

PAX Prime 2015 – Indie Highlights Day 1

I’ve come to terms with my taste in video games in the year and a half that’s passed since I’ve last written for Dorkadia. I used to think that one needed to have a universal appreciation for all genres and titles in […]

Gryphon Knight Epic – A charming mustachioed shooter

I’ve spent my spare time over the last few days digging into Gryphon Knight Epic, an awesome arcade style shooter from indie studio Cyber Rhino Studios. With all of the RPGs and adventure games that I’ve been playing lately, it […]

A Witcher 3 Postmortem

I finally finished (the main story of) Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt! Good Old Games tells me that I’ve logged 123.5 hours on it since it came out back on May 18th. Slow and steady, right? I’m sure less than […]

Odallus: The Dark Call – Retro like I remember

I’m old enough to have played a lot of NES games back when they were first released. There’s a certain kind of nostalgia filter that colors memories of how good those games actually were. Going back and playing them now on […]

The problematic plot of Batman: Arkham Knight

*Warning: This article contains numerous spoilers for the plot of Batman: Arkham Knight. I really enjoyed the stories in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City so naturally I was excited to see what Rocksteady was going to do with Arkham Knight. […]

Some spoiler-free Arkham Knight opinions.

I’ve been talking about wanting to play Batman: Arkham Knight  on the podcast for a long time. I was a big fan of the first two games in the series and I was quite eager for Rocksteady to take the […]

Fallout Shelter or Where Did My Life Go?

A few days ago, during their E3 conference, Bethesda announced a stand alone mobile game for the Fallout universe called Fallout Shelter. Since then, I haven’t been able to leave my phone alone for more than a few minutes at […]

Preview: Through the Woods

I just finished playing through the demo of Through the Woods from indie studio Antagonist and it’s the best atmospheric horror game that has yet to be made. I jumped more times than I’m comfortable admitting over the course of the fifteen minute […]

Early Impressions of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

If you listened to this week’s podcast (and you should), then you’re aware that I’m not a veteran player of the Witcher games. I had heard of them, certainly, but I had never found the time to fit another long RPG […]
