Citizens of Earth, Politics

The Tired Politics of Citizens of Earth

Citizens of Earth is, front and center, a game about its humor. Playing as the newly elected Vice President of Earth, you right wrongs, silence protesters, occasionally clear your besmirched name, and combat an alien invasion of the planet you now represent.

Super Smash Bros Losers Battle

7-Player Losers Bracket – GeekParty’s Super Smash Bros. Amiibo Tournament

With 14 amiibo players to work with, our tournament brackets got a little sloppy for the second round. So we decided to create a 7-person battle featuring all seven of the Round 1 losers and let the winner move on to Round 2. Sounds fair, right? … [Read More...]

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Opening Cinematic

Cutscenery: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

State of Decay was a surprise hit for many, but I always knew it had the chops to be something special. Not only is it my favorite zombie apocalypse survival sandbox sim, but it's one of the better XBLA games to come along since Shadow Complex made it a viable platform for showcasing incredible (debatably) smaller-tier games. … [Read More...]

Minecraft: A Love Letter to an Endless Game

Far Cry 4, Bengal Tiger vs Bear

In Far Cry 4, Wildlife Is out of Hand

In Far Cry 3, wildlife could be a bit dangerous. Maybe not as dangerous as the bears in Red Dead Redemption, but even so, a tiger attack could really mess up an otherwise good day. I feel like in Far Cry 4, Ubisoft cranked the wildlife knob up to 11. It's not that dangerous predators are especially difficult this time around, but I can hardly … [Read More...]
