Written by Joe Ahart // Edited by Andrew Busch //  ***MILD SPOILERS AHEAD*** When people recall the 80’s, it is hard not to think about the countless popular franchises that spawned out of the era. Terminator, Nightmare on Elm Street, Back to the Future, and so many other movies from this era still hold cultural value to this day. Some are even […]

Eighth Grade Review

nsurprisingly, Burnam’s first film is both as tongue-and-cheek and as awkward as his stand-up routines, but it also contains some remarkably powerful moments.

Opinion: A Discussion on Video Game Violence

By: Nick Farinola There’s nothing quite like assassinating your targets with a hidden blade in the historically accurate settings of the Assassin’s Creed games, severing the limbs of Dead Space’s frightening necromorphs on the USG Ishimura spaceship, or mutilating space Nazis with combat axes and a weapon that fires self-detonating explosives in the Wolfenstein reboot series. Violence is a prevalent […]

A Selfish Opinion: What I Want From Halo: Infinite

By: Nick Farinola             Now that E3 happened some two months ago, it’s time to look back on some of the announcements that had a ton of people hyped for the upcoming months of new releases.

Why Infliction Might be the P.T. We Never Got

By: Nick Farinola   To say that I have a love-hate relationship with horror games would be an understatement. The horror genre in movies is a completely different story. I’m usually in the theater opening night with front row seats for every horror movie, whether it’d come out of Hollywood or some low-key indie director. I honestly can’t get enough […]

What if the Flood Found Refuge on Earth?

Written by Nick Farinola // Edited by Joe Ahart Innately, humans are a curious, highly intellectual species. We have an ability that stretches beyond all other species — a unique voice inside of each and every one of our noggins. We can think for ourselves, make assumptions and feel emotions. The power is intoxicating, yet we continue to show a […]

A Random Encounter

I share this anecdote as a public thank you letter to Conri, the GM and designer of the Stellar Age ablegame, and the rest of the Devil’s Luck Crew for enabling me to have this heartwarming interaction with a complete stranger. I consider it a privilege to be able to act as an agent of inclusivity, evangelizing the stream to anyone who will listen, especially since I know that there are people out there like this GameStop employee who need to know that it exists.

God of War PS4: More than Gore

God of War IV is the latest example of a welcome trend in the modern game industry, where an established gameplay model is used as a vehicle to tell a moving, emotional story. It works for Spec Ops: The Line (third person shooter), Horizon Zero Dawn (open world action/adventure), and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (hack’n’slash action) and it certainly works here.

Ruiner and/or Ruined

A certain kind of player will absolutely relish this challenge. You probably already know if you’re the kind of player I’m talking about–and if you are, by all means, buy this game.

Now, you’re probably wondering what about this game makes me so conflicted–since so far so good, right?

Getting Over It and Moving On

A YouTube search will show you rage video after rage video after rage video of people trying to get over the mountain, swearing like sailors as they try to claim that sweet, sweet reward. From a voyeur’s perspective, their pain is wildly entertaining. But I wanted to know what it felt like as the player.

Games & (He)art: Reviewing Finding Paradise

It doesn’t matter if Finding Paradise fundamentally needs to be a game— what’s important is that artists like Kan Gao are starting to tell more mature stories using the medium. There’s a real emotional heart to Finding Paradise, and it’s every bit as resonant a mediation on the human condition as any novel, film, play, or other form of “high art.”
