Well this review comes in later than most, even if it is past due. My last Past Due Review was actually a year ago when I reviewed SUPERHOT. Then I decided to basically not play any games that came out in 2016 and instead opted to do nearly a years research of games from 2011…Read more You Sheep!
Well the headline says it, I love this game. "But why Scroo? We need to know." I hear none of you asking but I'm going to tell you anyway. Below is my review for yet another game I played and praise a lot. (more…)Read more You Sheep!
Way back in 2010 Vigil released Darksiders, a game that followed a Metroidvania style of play. I remember very clearly being totally enthralled by the atmosphere then and guys, it's still awesome. Stay with me and I'll tell you what I thought about this newest remaster from developers, Vigil Games and Kaiko and publisher, THQNordic.…Read more You Sheep!
I'm into ARPG's. From the isometrics like Diablo of the 90's, to the much more modern Path of Exile and the third person Darksiders from the 2000's, they've all entertained me and kept me in the hunt for newer and better gear just as they're designed to do.

Sometimes, a game comes along that does something extra-ordinary. Before you play it, you can't help but wonder if you're going to like it - exactly because of it's differences - but once you have played it, you see the world just a little bit differently. The game opens new possibilities, new vistas. Loom's story…Read more You Sheep!
Tragedy has struck America. Leonard Cohen is dead. What do you mean with “He was Canadian?” Was he? Well, guess everything is fine then in the US. Anyway, we at Twinstiq talk about videogames and I can’t think of any connection between him and those right now, so how about a very short review of…Read more You Sheep!
Hey. You guys ever play the Lost Planet games? I never played the first one but I did play the second. Heads up, it's aged like Melanie Griffith. But the third installment wasn't half bad. Stick around and I'll tell you why it could be worth going back to now. (more…)Read more You Sheep!
Recently we did a play through of Alan Wake for Twinstiq Game Club and after it was over I had an itch for a good fast paced shooter. I had played Doom not too long ago and as good as it was, I didn't want to start that over again quite yet. I Considered Rage:…Read more You Sheep!
Last week, we talked a little about Brothers and games very like it. These titles are often experiences more than they are games. You get into them and you direct a protagonist, but you don’t do much actual video gaming: there’s no one to kill, there’s no score to beat and – most tellingly, often,…Read more You Sheep!
Gaming is largely made up of two big landmasses. On the one hand, we have games that are truly games – with systems and high scores and scores of people to kill. On the other, there are experiences. The industry hasn’t been kind to these, calling them walking simulators and then writing them off, but…Read more You Sheep!
