Review: FNaF World

Right, I feel I’ll need to get this out of the way: as I’ve said before, I adore the Five Nights at Freddy’s games, which I think are probably the finest modern example of survival horror.  And on top of that, I love turn-based RPGs, so a turn-based RPG based on Five Nights at Freddy’s…

On “That Dragon, Cancer” and the Monetization of Grief

So, let’s talk about That Dragon, Cancer.  If you’re unaware, it’s a recently-released Steam game about a young boy named Joel Green and his four-year battle with cancer, as experienced by his family.  In terms of gameplay it’s a fairly standard “walking simulator” experience, much as I hate that term – a linear journey through…

I keep trying to come up with comparisons for Pony Island, which has in the three days since its release already become one of the most talked-about games of the year.  It’s a darker Frog Fractions.  It’s Undertale with better gameplay.  Nothing can quite communicate the wonderful, special weirdness that makes the game the first…

Just over 22 years on, and Doom is somehow still maintaining one of the biggest and best modding communities out there.  And even if you don’t read the Cacowards every year or keep up with the modding scene like I do, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Brutal Doom, the critical darling that captured…

We’re counting down the last 5 days of 2015 with New Year’s Resolutions for 5 major publishers to follow.  The odds of them listening are slim, but at least when they screw up again we can say “told you so.” [DAY 1] [DAY 2] [DAY 3] [DAY 4] [DAY 5] We’ve had a lot of…

With Christmas exactly one week from today, many gamers are wishful and hoping to expect that one game they’ve been dying to get their hands on all year inside their stocking, perhaps a new gaming console, or even new streaming gear so they can expand upon their Twitch streaming; hoping that it is stored and safely…

With the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens premiering tonight, many fans are exciting for one of the most popular sci-fi movies to finally be coming back on the big screen. In honor of the first of many Star Wars movies to becoming in the near future, here are our top 10 best…

Note: this article was written a week before this piece by TayNixter and scheduled for later publishing.  There are some obvious similarities between the two, but consider this article a counterpoint to that one…with a twist. Star Wars: Episode VII is released today, which means that if you want to avoid spoilers you should probably…

  The video game industry has been around as early as the 1970’s, with mainstream popularity first beginning during the Golden Age of the Arcade in the early 80’s. The industry has gone through a lot of changes throughout the decades, but is still proving more popular than ever with the advent of mobile gaming.…

2015 saw some of the biggest and most-anticipated triple-A releases in gaming, from Fallout 4 to Star Wars: Battlefront.  But surprisingly, it’s Undertale which (at time of writing) holds the title of highest-rated PC game of 2015.
