I think it’s safe to say that Indie games are a hit or miss bunch. Love them or hate them, there is just as good of a chance that an “Indie” title will end up being a waste of time as there is that it will have any quality in its execution.

There comes a time that every reviewer wants to set aside their persona. To communicate something deeply personal about themselves or their beliefs with their audience.

You’ve gotta love the mafia. Sure they were a bunch of criminals who killed, bribed, and stole with a passion that was almost unbelievable, but at least they had style.

You know, there are some days when I’m sure that my good friend Tyto secretly hates me with a burning passion. One of these occurred right after he released his manliest review to date, Overcompensating with the Owl in the Rafters, and he proposed a rather... unique game for me to review based on the subject matter. That game: Muscle March. What. The. Eff.

It’s funny. There have been hundreds, perhaps even thousands of super heroes created for public consumption. From the straight forward heroism of Superman to the crazy antics of Deadpool, there has always been a character type for fans to latch onto and watch as they evolved through the medium of comics.

Wooooooo! This review marks one year since I first started writing for The Fan, with my first game review for the site about Devil Kings first being posted back on February third of last year.
