Bargain Gaming – Lollipop Chainsaw
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. A desire for them to reach beyond the veil of separation and show the reader what they truly value and care about. That, for perhaps one fleeting moment, they might share a piece of themselves with their audience so that both they and their readers can grow from the experience.

Bargain Gaming – Journey
There is a question that I hear fairly frequently that bothers me more than it rightly should. I understand the intent behind the query, but the way it is phrased is so poorly thought out and foolish sounding that it makes me roll my eyes just out of reflex.

That game: Muscle March. What. The. Eff.

Bargain Gaming Special Review – Arkham City
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.

As an avid enjoyer of Receattear: An Item Shop's Tale, I was naturally intrigued by Carpe Fulgur's next project, Chantlise: A Tale Of Two Sisters. Naturally, I purchased, played, and am now reviewing it. Does it set a new record of I am just fishing up trash?
