Now this game looks like my cup of tea, but since my friend Leroy is the Steam PC expert, I had him review this one, too. I just might have to make a trip to his house sometime to play it (or I could download it myself). You know you want to read a review about a game starring a goat, right? Yeah, you do!
Soundodger+ from Adult Swim Games is a mix of 2-D shooter and music game genres. It’s available to download on Steam for PC, so I had my Steam expert friend Leroy take a stab at reviewing it. Check out his take on the game here.
Ready to get your retro-fix on? Legend of Dungeon is an old-school pixel styled randomized dungeon crawler for one or two players. But is it any good? I had my good friend Leroy take it for a spin, so check out his take on it and find out for yourself!
If you’re a fan of intense twin stick shooters like Robotron or Smash TV, then you’re in luck! My good friend Leroy has a preview of an upcoming PC title called Assault Android Cactus! I played it over at his house and it’s shaping up to be quite an awesome game. Check out his preview here!
If you love old-school arcade action 2-D platformers such as Rastan, you’ll want to check out this article by my friend Leroy. He reviewed a downloadable PC game on Steam called Völgarr the Viking from Adult Swim Games. It’s a tribute to all 2-D action platformers starring barbarians.

If you like super hard 2-D platformers, then you’ll jump for joy for this new downloadable PC game. I had Leroy, a good friend of mine; review Electronic Super Joy for me since he was a better fit for this kind of game than I was. So click and read on for his take on this one.
One of Marvel Comic’s most wisecracking, insanely silly (literally) anti-heroes now has his own game! Play as The Merc With a Mouth, Deadpool, in this third-person action brawler shooter game for PS3, 360, and PC (PS3 version reviewed here). Shoot and slash your way through all manner of bad guys, interact with other popular Marvel characters, and enjoy the off the wall raucous humor that Deadpool fans will love! Speaking of fans, my brother Jeff’s favorite Marvel character IS Deadpool, so I decided to let him take a stab at reviewing this one.
Get ready for a totally tubular, radical blast from the past with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. It’s an expansion for Far Cry 3, but you don’t need the original game to play it. Just take every staple from any cheesy 80’s action movie, mix in a large dose of humor, and you get Blood Dragon. Since it seemed like something more up my brother Jeff’s alley, I had him guest review it (360 version reviewed here).
The Mystery Dungeon series of games have a long running history in Japan and even here in the US, too! Also called Rogue-likes (because they’re a lot like an old PC title by the same name), these games have you exploring randomly generated dungeon mazes with tricks, traps, and enemies every step of the way. It’s your job to nab as many useful treasures as you can and make it to the exit alive so you can keep your stash. Many Mystery Dungeon titles use popular characters from other games, like Torneko and Yangus from Dragon Quest, Pokemon, and even an old Namco arcade game called The Tower of Druaga! My brother Jeff loved The Nightmare of Druaga so much as a kid that he even asked for a birthday cake of it (I do have a picture of that). So since Jeff loves Mystery Dungeon games AND Pokemon, I thought he’d be a perfect fit for this review.
