Orphan: A Ninny Pickpocket’s Review – Being a pickpocket to survive in London

If you are looking to steal away a few minutes of time for a light bit of fun, then Pixel Jum’s mini-game Orphan is perfect for you.  You play as an unnamed street urchin looking to reallocate funds from the wealthy to yourself in a pixelated Dickensian London.  The game is extremely simple, you just need to scrap together enough money stolen from people for food for the day avoiding cops, thugs, and starvation.

Borderlands the Pre-Sequel Review: Great IP that doesn’t run very well

Borderlands is a well established gaming franchise, focusing on first person shooting with some RPG elements. It uses the cell shading that it’s well known for, along with quirky humor. When it was announced several months ago that it was being ported over to Android, on Nvidia hardware to be specific, I was thrilled, having enjoyed both the original as well as the sequel. This game is easily as good as the others, though my experience playing it wasn’t.

Half-Life 2 Review: A classic shooter that still holds up today

Released by Valve, Half-Life 2 is an icon of voodoo gaming as a whole, not just its genre of First-Person Shooting. The game is available for weekday I believe is anything running Nvidia’s SOC, and outright requires a controller to play. Never having played a Half-Life game before, I was quite excited at the opportunity. I’ve spent the part few weeks playing through this game, and this is my review.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes – This is Not the RPG You Are Looking For

As fans the world over await the December 18th release of Episode VII with feverish anticipation (myself included), many have turned to the recent onslaught of media offerings to get their interim Star Wars fix. With a slew of new EU novels, multiple Marvel comic books, a new animated series and the blockbuster release of Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars fans have been fed a continuous stream of Star Wars content over the past year. But what of those Star Wars fans that are more inclined to consume content on their mobile devices? Electronic Arts sought to leave no stone un-turned in that regard, but after having spent some time with their recent mobile “RPG,” Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, I am of the mind that this was a stone best left undisturbed.

Fearless Fantasy Review: A stripped down RPG that’s quite fun

Fearless Fantasy is an RPG game, with a few quirks that make it unique. Judging by the name, one might assume that it’s a clone of Final Fantasy. While that would seem logical as it is a JRPG with a somewhat similar battle system where units on both sides take turns, and they line up on opposite sides of the screens, in actuality the two games may have more differences than similarities. When I first played the game, I was slightly disappointed by this fact. As I played through the game though, I came to see it for what it was, and appreciate that this game is distinct and unique in its own ways.
