Dicey Dungeons Review

The Roguelike genre continues to evolve thanks to pairing Roguelike elements with other game styles. Moonlighter essentially turned The Legend of Zelda into a Roguelike. Into the Breach was a Roguelike twist on Advance Wars that added infinite replayability. Slay the Spire drew from the deck-building genre of tabletop games and applied the Roguelike template to it to create a wildly-addicting game I couldn’t put down for 100+ hours.

Showing the world that the Roguelike still has a lot of room to grow, Dicey Dungeons draws from the world of dice games for yet another new take on the genre.

Among Us: The Hottest Game in the World is Quite the Handful to Play in an Ideal Setting

Though the game was first released in 2018, Among Us has really blown up in 2020. A sizable chunk of that credit goes to streamers who have help to spread the word about its existence. But beyond simply showcasing the game, they’ve also showcased the best (and most difficult) way to play. I get the sense that most players are having a considerably worse experience than their favourite streamers.

Florence Review (Nintendo Switch Version)

The story of two hearts colliding is one that’s explored to great effect in virtually every medium. Except gaming. For numerous reasons, the medium has been slow to create experiences around the themes of love and romance beyond more juvenile dating simulators or bolting on elements of romantic relationships into established genres. As much as I love headshots, juggle combos, and stacking blocks, I’ve always felt like there was a whole world of possibilities that could arise when combining the interactive elements of gaming with the themes of love and romance.

Originally released on mobile in 2018, Florence takes a clever approach to bringing a love story to life within the boundaries of gaming. Though I meant to play it at the time, I didn’t get around to it until it was released on the Nintendo Switch in February 2020. The experience of playing through it has weighed heavily on my heart ever since.

Reminiscing on the Good Old Days of HQ Trivia

“Have you heard of HQ Trivia?”

It was the fall of 2017 and my former coworker was selling me on the virtues of this hot new mobile game he’d discovered. “You can play for free and you have the opportunity to win real cash!”

A few days later, during the middle of the workday, we stepped aside to play a few minutes of HQ Trivia. Those first few minutes would form the start of a ritual that carried on for quite some time.
