Rack N Ruin

Rack N Ruin’s Protagonist Is an Evil Little Bastard

The folks at LifeSpark Entertainment were kind enough to let me into their newest game, Rack N Ruin, a tad bit before launch. In case you haven't heard of it, Rack N Ruin is a crazy mashup between old-school RPG, dungeon crawler, and shmup (I feel giddy just getting to type that combination of old school goodness), and it's coming to PC and PS4 … [Read More...]

Grand Theft Auto V on PS4 Looks Even Better than I Hoped

The moment I started up Grand Theft Auto V on my new PS4, I knew I'd entered a different Los Santos. Yes, I realize it's the same game world I hung around in on my Xbox 360, but the higher resolution and graphical prowess made it feel like a brand new city. After porting over my online hooligan, I set out into the world. Heists were forgotten … [Read More...]

Minecraft on the PS Vita Is a Smaller Portion, But Just as Filling

At the time, we knew that the pack would include three other characters, one of which would be another guest character. It turns out we didn't have to wait long for the second guest character to be revealed, because one week … [Read More...]


Panel of the Week – Raiders, Robot Brains, and Rita Hayworth

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, She-Hulk looked at cat pictures. This week, Kraven is on Twitter. I could take or leave pop culture references in comics. For every line that makes me guffaw, there's another that makes me groan. Still, I'm a sucker for a well-placed, subtle nod to something I … [Read More...]

I’ll Have a Side of Structure with My Sandbox, Please

I've never been the biggest fan of sandbox titles. When I have the ability to do everything I want, I quickly lose the motivation to do anything at all. There's no challenge to be met, no core structure holding things up; just a box of stuff that, developers tell me, is incredibly fun. Fun for some, perhaps, but not for me. Maybe I'm just … [Read More...]
