Published on June 22, 2016 by in Review

There’s a budding number of games that are less traditional experiences and tend to think outside the box.  Think of it as the “art film” of the video game world.  These games have unique concepts or they simply provide a unique experience.  Breached is that type of game except that it doesn’t let go of the roots

Coffin Dodgers Review

Published on May 10, 2016 by in Review

The concept of Coffin Dodgers was so simple that you want to play it on general principle.  With a name like “Coffin Dodgers” – a slang term for an elderly person overstaying their welcome on Earth – the dark comedy seems inherent to the game’s identity.  I was thinking that even in a simple form this running gag
