There are few titles that stand out when I think back on truly memorable games. One of those titles is Homeworld and its sequel. First released way back in 1999, Homeworld featured true 3D navigation (X, Y and Z axis), detailed animations, unique ship types, an emotionally engaging epic story and a kick ass soundtrack. […]
When Contra first came out, it was clear to those old enough to realize that it was a sort of play on beloved action movies such as Predator and Rambo. You playfully named the “blue guy” and “red guy” after the famed heroes with little to no regard as to what their names actually were. […]
In case you missed it, I was actually a part of the NAVGTR Nominations: Whip Caucus panel during Pax South. It was an interactive panel where I announced nominees alongside other National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers members and then joined the audience as they participated in a caucus vote.

It was only natural that we found our way to the poker table during Pax South. Texas Twist™ Poker will change the way you typically think about playing poker. It’s not played with chips and cards on a traditional poker table. Instead, Texas Twist Poker is a mobile puzzle game where players try to get the […]
Wandering through the Expo Hall of Pax South, we came across the 2D platformer/puzzle game called Klaus currently being developed by the folks at La Cosa. We got a chance to sit down and play with this unique platformer that is coming soon to the PS4 and Playstation Vita.
Pax South invaded San Antonio, Texas this past weekend. Every Pax is a unique opportunity for gaming fans to interact directly with developers, Twitch streamers and even podcasters. Pax South brought on a strong roster of indie games that caught our attention. Today, we are trying something new and sharing our Instagram feed which featured lots of video game related cosplay as well as some things we have seen around the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center during Pax South 2015.
