This LSD: Dream Emulator Video Messed Me Up

LSD Dream EmulatorSo I was talking to my fellow GeekParty staffers the other day. We somehow ended up on the topic of drugs, and I was asked if I had ever played LSD: Dream Emulator. With a name like that, I had to look it up.

I couldn’t have predicted what I would find. I mean, how do you predict what an LSD emulator will look like? [Read more...]

Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Rob Zombie’s French Revolution

Assassin's Creed/Rob ZombieDespite my checkered past with the Assassin’s Creed series, I must admit that Assassin’s Creed: Unity looks really cool.

I am also a fan of Rob Zombie films. So when I heard he was presenting an animated Assassin’s Creed: Unity short with artwork  from Tony Moore I was really looking forward to seeing whatever these too guys were cooking  up. [Read more...]

I Feel Horrible About Wanting SoniPro

I have a Japanese 3DS LL, which I bought because those 10-20 games that aren’t being localized were just so worth it. You know, Girl’s RPG Cinderellife, Mansion Percussion, Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2, Assault the Cheating Boyfriend! Taiko no Tatsujin: Don to Katsu no Jikuu Daibouken, and so on.

The fact that I have one pretty much bestows upon me an obligation to keep up with the latest Japanese games we’re never, ever, ever going to get, and that’s how I stumbled upon SoniPro. [Read more...]

This Mother 4 Video Always Makes Me Smile

Mother 4I don’t know how to feel about Mother 4. Fan-made games have the potential to be fantastic, and in most cases, I’m more than willing to give them a try. After all, games like Psycho Waluigi have brought me hours of entertainment. [Read more...]

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Trailer: Kill, Rinse, Repeat

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate Feature PicHere we go again.

Although its title suggests otherwise, Warriors Orochi 3 is actually the third installment in the Warriors Orochi series. None of that matters, because all of these games look identical to me.

At first glance I thought, “Wow, another Dynasty Warriors game, in this day and age. Really?” Then I realized that it’s actually another Warriors Orichi game, in this day and age. Really?

I don’t mean to poke fun or dress down this game if it’s your cup of tea, but I just don’t see the allure of standing on a barren surface, hacking and slashing through waves of inept soldiers.

Apparently now there are Aerial Special Attacks, plus changing battle styles AND Triple Rush! Be still my beating heart. Add to that the True Musou Blast, and we’ve got ourselves a ballgame.

The period-appropriate music is another nice touch.

Look, if you like these games, then you’ll probably like this one too. Tecmo Koei didn’t even need to make a trailer. They could’ve just shown a still shot of the title for 20 seconds and a release date.

As far as a trailer quality goes, however, this is pretty average.

Release Kingdom Hearts III Already, Square Enix

KingdomHeartsIII

I remember playing the first two Kingdom Hearts games and absolutely loving them. Being able to rub elbows with some of Disney’s most famous characters was a ton of fun.

I especially liked worlds where Sora underwent a transformation. Romping around as a lion with Simba was great! And swimming through the sea as a merboy with the characters from The Little Mermaid was surprisingly enjoyable. [Read more...]

Assassin’s Creed: Unity Gameplay Trailer Televises the Revolution — In HD

Assassin's Creed: UnityThe Assassin’s Creed franchise and I have a checkered past. No matter how many times I hope for the best, I inevitably end up being disappointed by each new entry. With every new layer of disappointment, I swear to myself like a jilted lover: “Never again.” [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...]
