I’m on vacation, but while I put off finishing the Higurashi conclusion, y’all should check out Mimpi, an absolutely adorable little platformer about a cute pupper trying to find their human. Everything about it is endearing, and it’s nice to see a game with a built-in hint system so all the puzzles are actually solvable. Check it out!

Bastion

Bastion is a hack-and-slash, button-mashy action RPG with very nice art and absolutely gorgeous music bogged down by mediocre gameplay and a story that ranges from boring to bizarre. And I don’t mean bizarre as in strange, I mean as in wtf were the writers thinking.

Spoilers inside for Braid, of all things, which is an excellent game you should go play.

I’d heard great things about this first game and the new trailer looked badass, so it went onto my list. Also you should watch the trailer because I am now SO EXCITED for this game. (more…)

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

This is a solid, solid wRPG that actually manages to do something different and interesting with a high-fantasy setting. The visuals are gorgeous as well. My biggest qualm with it is that it was really too easy, even on the highest difficultly.

This game had me at the very first line of the opening: “It all started when you died.”
