I've been able to find a few moments in my busy academic schedule to take some time and write something for you to read about Anodyne, a relatively recent release by Sean Hogan and Jon Kittaka who call themselves Analgesic Productions. And no, I have no idea what the title of their studio is supposed to mean or if there is some sort of deep meaning behind it. But that doesn't matter, because I can talk about their game... so follow after the break to see what I think of this little indie game.
Before we begin the review proper I would like to share with you a brief e-mail message I am deeply considering sending to Telltale games. It goes as follows *ahem*:
Dear Telltale Games,
Screw you guys. I hate you. Well, I also love you... But NEVER MIND THAT! You have done two things for which I will be complaining about to you right now! First, you have placed me in an awkward position regarding a review I wrote less than a month ago! Some things I wrote have proved incorrect and now I am feeling both irritated and foolish. I hope you're pleased with yourself...
Secondly, and more importantly! I believe your game "The Walking Dead" is a example of some form of the cruellest and most horrible psychological warfare in the brief existence of our species. I will see you in some European High Court! Good DAY to you sirs!
P.s. I still love you though.
Of all the games out there to play, I have to admit that action RPGs are my favorite genre. So when Runic Games announced that they were going to make an action RPG named Torchlight, I was all over it. Three or four wins later with multiple classes and challenge runs, I was getting ready to have another version of Torchlight 2 when I remembered that there were mods. Then, after another year of playing Torchlight 1 with mods, I was finally ready for Torchlight 2.
Thankfully, it came out quite shortly after I was ready for it (though the delays were kind of annoying) in September 2012. I've been playing it off and on since release, though Guild Wars 2 was pretty distracting, and I recently finished my first full run through of the game. Let's talk, shall we?
Paradox Publishing has put together another wonderful game for us to play and review critically. Furthermore, they even made it a dwarven filled digging extravaganza! Naturally, I decided that I had to get a hold of this one, because it has dwarves... and digging... and holes in the ground. Not being a stranger to digging simulators (Dwarf Fortress, Mine Things, Delve Deeper, Gnomoria, etc), I decided to dig into this one! Let's see what muddy details we can uncover.
Because last week I uploaded the final episode of our Amnesia series I suddenly found myself at a loss of what to record next. I had initially been considering continuing my playthrough of indie horror Anna but if you have read the review you will know that I was less than impressed with the game and even after saying that I just wanted to finish the damn thing, I gave up because I simply did not want to play any more.
So I am here to announce MMGaming's current plans for videos in the next short while. We have got a few ideas for multiplayer videos including Borderlands 2, Guild Wars 2 and a horror beta of Survivors. As well as this we might be seeing some more Call of Cthulhu and FTL from Tim. I also have a few plans including perhaps some Amnesia custom stories or other horror game mods. Todat however I wish to welcome you to the start of something completely different! Check it out after the jump!
Well, whenever I open up a new indie game I wonder what I'm going to find... because some of the craziest games out there with the weirdest settings/ideas come from the indie developers. And... this was no exception, to be honest, though I enjoyed my experience here overall, I think.
If you're into Lovecraftian horror, this game may be worth checking out... however, even if you're not (which I tend not to be, honestly), I still think it's definitely worth taking a look at. So, in the spirit of those words, let's go ahead and open this 'box' up and see what we've got inside, no?
Hey folks! Yeah we're finally back after over two weeks of not posting we ought to be getting back into the game (pun intended). Seriously though the past few weeks have been a mixture of distractions, everyone being busy and most of us being lazy and so we haven't been posting, I know it's been ever longer than that since we've had some News, but hey... I was in holiday mode! Seriously though we ought to be getting back into the posting business properly round about now as we have all now settled into our respective Uni's and are ready to work on things both Work and Game wise. Just as importantly we are already getting some great videos onto Youtube for you to check out! And today we have a rather nice little selection of videos for you to check out.
Gary and Tim were lucky enough to start playing Torchlight 2, the top down RPG similar to Diablo 3, from Runic Games and have already created a number of cool little videos. Each video features a different encounter or a different challenge and most are conducted with the two of them mostly muddling their way through! So, short and sweet and you can check them out after the jump! Enjoy my friends! And remember to keep coming back for more!
