How I Went Through 7 Copies of Terraria

Terraria Explore! Sometimes, a guy just has to keep buying multiple copies of the games he loves. For example, I’ve purchased most of the Metal Gear Solid titles three times, and I have Minecraft on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

But my Terraria collection is getting close to Mel Gibson in Conspiracy Theory levels of crazy. I have “purchased” 7 copies of it now.

Dino D-Day Is Roaring Fun

From the pompous British lieutenant to the kamikaze compsognathus, Dino D-Day is wired to be silly. The premise is essentially “But what if the Nazis had dinosaurs,” and what ensues is something that’s a boatload of fun. Add some friends and some beer, and you have three well-spent hours gone from my life forever. [Read more...]

NeoTokyo: The Best Things in Life Are Free

You’ve probably heard of Black Mesa, but have you heard about NeoTokyo? Heavily inspired by the worlds of Akira and Masamune Shirow’s Ghost In The Shell, this gritty sci-fi shooter is woefully unrecognized by the gaming press. [Read more...]

No-One Has to Die Is the 999 of Browser Games

Zero Escape IIIMy landlord briefly shut off my water, which meant I had some time to kill this morning. I decided to spend that time playing a weird little browser game called No-One Has to Die. Its puzzles weren’t particularly interesting, and its characters weren’t that memorable, but it did have one thing in its favor:  it was reminiscent of the spectacular 999. [Read more...]

Whispering Willows’ Lighting Is Fantastic

I’m not one for waxing nostalgic about technical issues or minor design choices in games. I may mention how I like that a developer did his, or that, but I never make a big deal because really, it isn’t. Yet, despite all that, I can’t help but be mesmerized by Whispering Willows‘ lighting.

Seriously, have you seen this game? Look at this screenshot here, where Elena’s essence is astral projected across a starry sky.

No Man’s Sky Looks Like a Dream Of Creamy Goodness

The Fall: A Study in Perspective

At first, The Fall appears to be the tired old story of a pilot who is injured and crash lands onto an unknown planet. But in The Fall, the pilot is too injured, concussed, or dead to move, leaving the story with no hero.

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey will Always Remind me of James Blunt

006_imgI loved Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. The graphics weren’t the greatest, and it could be pretty cheesy, but I still played the shit out of it. It was, and still is, one of my favorite PC games. The storyline was intriguing, and the ability to play multiple characters in one game was somewhat new to me.

But while the game itself was one of the most brilliant things I’d ever seen, one of its positives ended up being a downfall. There’s a character named April Ryan, and I loved that. I can’t help but have an affinity for a character with the same name as me! However, April gets a lot of attention from one very creepy character. [Read more...]

Gods Will Be Watching Is Brutally Difficult, and I Absolutely Love It

Gods Will Be Watching begins with a simple plea. Although the game offers two difficulty levels — Original and Easy — the developers ask that players select the harder version. They warn that it may be painful, but insist that it’s how the game was meant to be played. [Read more...]

The Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture E3 Trailer Gives Me Goosebumps

EverybodysGonetotheRaptureThere’s something about a haunting, high-pitched, female voice singing a melancholic song that really punches me right in the heart muscle.

The Chinese Room is well-known for Dear Esther, and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. However, their most recent undertaking, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, has really caught our attention here at GeekParty. Our Senior Editor, Mandi, has already mentioned that it might be the game to convince her to buy a PS4. I have to wholeheartedly agree with her. [Read more...]
