Risk of Rain – Review

Risk of Rain is hands down one of my top 3 games of 2014. It is a relatively simple platformer with a twist and some roguelike elements thrown in for good measure.

The Cave – Review

At first glance The Cave did not seem particularly impressive but coming from Double Fine should at the very least make it an interesting game. As with most games I went ahead and jumped into it without any prior knowledge of what I was getting into. Luckily for me the overall experience was quite enjoyable, read on to watch and read my overall feelings regarding this adventure, puzzle-platformer based game.
