Game Sho — Quest for Infamy

Game Sho — Quest for Infamy
I had never really played an adventure game before. I'm fairly young, so that genre had fallen out of the mainstream before I ever got the chance to play them. So, with no prior experience, I dove into Quest for Infamy.

The Alpha Gamer #4: Running the Distance with Melody’s Escape
Imagine, if you will, a game that was conceived when Miku Hatsune, Audiosurf, and Dance Dance Revolution got together and made a baby. That’s probably the most accurate way to describe Melody’s Escape, a parkour/running game that uses the player’s music library to dictate the gameplay.

The Alpha Gamer #2: Entering the Danger Zone with Starwhal: Just the Tip
Remember that really awesome song from Weebl’s Stuff that proclaims that narwhals “have a kick-ass facial horn, they’re the Jedi of the sea,” and “they stop Cthulhu eating ye”? This month, the Alpha Gamer has found a game that lets players take control of these beautiful creatures IN SPACE. It’s called Starwhal: Just the Tip and it is a fantastic game to bring to a party and possibly ruin friendships with.

Siege Spots – JetGetters
Imagine this: you're in the middle of a high-speed dogfight, your ally ahead of you taking on heavy fire. Thinking quickly, you leap from your own cockpit, sending out your grappling-arm to latch on and zoom toward your ally's jet, climbing atop it and shooting. This is just one amazing scenario that could happen in any given match of the Kickstarter project, JetGetters.
