  I’ve played two of these games but I would also recommend Broken Age and Faster Than Light. I like Broken Age a bit more because Faster Than Light is so random that it can get downright frustrating but both games are amazing fun in their own way. I keep hearing good things about the …

Super Smash Flash 2 – Release Date and Updates Coming to You Directly

I really can’t believe that Super Smash Flash is still a thing, but I guess if you can’t wait for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U this is the next best thing. Not only that, but it has a bunch of characters we know would never make it in to Smash Bros officially, …

Prodigy – A Collectible Game That Brings Your Figurines to Life

So this game…looks freakin’ cool. White I’m not particularly a fan of the Skylanders/Disney Infinity style of buy toys and put them into the game world, this though feels like it’s worth it.
