Training hard to be the master once more Now, Nintendo has gone a step further. Recently, they announced that they … [Read more...]

super mario maker wii u

Three years ago, Nintendo launched the Wii U. It was the sequel to the Nintendo Wii, part of its next generations of consoles (its last most popular console being the Nintendo GameCube). The Wii U had one of the strangest controllers anywhere. The controller had an embedded touchscreen.

People did not need the integrated display. … [Read more...]

Spinning a Yarn with Barn Yarn


Recently, we had the joy of playing a game called Barn Yarn, from a publisher called Gametop. Of course, we expected something like a farming game that involves the planting and subsequent harvest of different kinds of crops. Oh how wrong we were. Unlike all of these endless games that populate this particular niche, this one is definitely one of a kind. It is many things, but it is not a farming game, that’s for sure. It starts off by introducing you to the barn; a new addition to the farm that is not in the best shape … [Read more...]

This is the setting for the new Indie game: The Flock. It is a horror game with a sick twist. While this is expected of a horror game, the twist is something you would never expect. The game dies.
