Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse Nintendo Switch Review: Paris in the Fall

[Disclosure: A review copy was provided for the contents of this article]

Nostalgia can be a dangerous thing, especially where video games are concerned. When it was first released in December of 2013, Broken Sword 5 was intended to be a nostalgic throwback to what made the original Broken Sword one of the most popular and well loved point and click adventures of the 1990’s. I still remember picking up a copy of it on the PlayStation and being enthralled with its story, its incredible painterly graphics and its likable, human characters.

One Three Zero

When the trailer to One Zero Three came out last month, I refrained from talking about it until a later date simply because I didn’t have very much to say although I did have much to say. I’m sure you’ll understand my plight. Continue reading “What ARE You, One Zero Three?”

Corona Black

Definitely not a new brand of beer, Corona Black is in fact much more ludicrous.

This is the story of one Dominic Shade. The ex-gangster apparently has more than your average turf war to contend with it seems, as he struggles with being a family man and the soul-piercing grip of an existential crisis. Continue reading “Help a Gangster Cook Eggs, Battle Mecha on Corona Black”
