“Pankapu” Brings Dreams to Life w/ Beautiful Visuals!

Pankapu is a new action-adventure platformer (quite the mouthful!) from Too Kind Studios that released on September 21, 2016. The name is indeed strange, but that strangeness is very befitting of the dream world in which the game takes place. Omnia, the world of dreams, is the setting for this wonderful

Item Hunting & More in “Zelda: ALTTP” Episode 2!

The second episode here of my retro playthrough of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is a good bit shorter than the first one because it’s essentially a bridge between dungeons. Last time, we left off with having completed the Eastern Palace dungeon and receiving the Pegasus Boots from

“The Descendant: Episode 1” Full Playthrough!

The Descendant is an episodic post-apocalyptic PC adventure game from Gaming Corps AB that I was turned onto by this site’s own Jeremy Stratton. Each episode seems to be fairly short so far (around an hour or less), so this lends itself to easy recording because each episode of the game

On a recent visit to Microsoft’s website in order to download the latest “Windows Essentials” package (for Movie Maker, which I still use for simple things) gave me a bit of a surprise: Windows Essentials 2012 will no longer be supported after January 10, 2017. By extension, this means that

Be Sure to Visit the “Valley!”

If you haven’t heard of the Valley before, you may end up thanking me after you read this post because it’s an amazing PC adventure that released on August 24 that probably flew a bit under most people’s radars. It’s a game that intrigued me ever since I first started getting press

Bring Your Worlds to Life with “Inkarnate!”

Until this past weekend I had no idea what Inkarnate was, but out of sheer luck while searching for a specific map of Hyrule I happened to stumble upon it. I wish I had actually found this application some time ago because it would have been really helpful. A while back I

“Mega Man Sunrise” Offers Game Boy Nostalgia!

When it comes to fan-game design, DJ Coco is a person of many talents. In the past, I’ve enjoyed Coco’s Super Mario Country and Paper Mario 3D Land, and so when I discovered that they took a crack at making their own Mega Man title I was very excited. What also made this

“Behind the Curtain” — Sept. 2016 CB&MR Article!
