Kaiju-A-GoGo

A tl;dr Haiku City-smashing game That feels like Early Access It still needs some work.   Forget raindrops on roses, my favorite things are more localized in destroying cities with giant mechanized dinosaurs and taking over the world. Kaiju-A-GoGo is an indie action game from Kerberos Productions Inc. for the PC that put me on a path to take over the world one monster-ravaged city at a time. But, while often fun, Kaiju hits some major snags in playability due to bugs, awkward design, and a lingering feeling like everything just isn’t there yet.   The Meat Gameplay is simple. I’m a giant robot and I make things dead. Well, to be nitpicky, I’m a mad scientist. I point the giant robot, henceforth Kaiju – because authenticity, in the general area of things I want dead, and am allowed creative input in the process via complete control of Kaiju’s (probably ...

The Train Wreck Podcast – Ep 05 – Just the Two of Us

Rory and Samm are back for another episode of The Train Wreck Podcast.  This week we discuss quite a bit, amazing what can actually be accomplished with two people instead of Dan interrupting the show all the time.  Rory gives a brief review of the Netflix/Marvel series Daredevil after he binge watched it Saturday/Sunday (only breaking to sleep and eat Samm’s delicious dinners).  Samm forgets every name in the comic world and the two are constantly having to look things up on the Google.  Continuing the discussion of Marvel’s MCU, Avengers 2 and Antman are on the plate, discussing the four new clips from Marvel for Avengers 2 released during the world premiere of the movie.  Tune into the end of the show to hear about the Atlantic City Boardwalk Con.  As usual sit back, if you’re at work grab yourself a nice cup of coffee and give a listen ...

Pillars of Eternity

A tl;dr Haiku Stop time to plan moves. Still get blown up by a mage. Reload, kill him first. Pillars of Eternity is an isometric RPG for the PC by Obsidian Entertainment. The buzz-worthy detail about it is that it’s a Triple A title that was funded by over seventy thousand people through Kickstarter. So if this does well, we can expect a future where we give big companies money to produce a product which we will proceed to give them more money for. Neat. But if the games are good, it’s gonna be worth it, right? Gameplay Fighting battles in Pillars of Eternity bounces from interesting and engaging to frustrating and stupid. This mostly has to do with the A.I., if in combat, being incapable of finding a walking path for a character that’s anything other than a perfectly straight line. List of things that completely befuddle the A.I.: ...

Yea… Bout That… and Zomiibo Interview

We had the chance to have a conversation with the creators of “Yea… Bout That…” web comic while at The Great Philadelphia Comic Con. Both Adam and Benny are awesome guys to talk to, we quickly made friends with them because of our love for Amiibos.  Adam is the creator of the ever famous Zomiibo Peach, as well as some other famous customs I am sure you have seen around the web like, the Danky Kang, as well as the Jason Vorhees villager which Adam mentions in the video interview below.
