About

Andres Ruiz is an English major at Florida International University, but that's not nearly as fun as writing for Twinfinite. Some of his favorite series include The Legend of Zelda, Tekken, Katamari, and Bayonetta. When he's not writing about or playing games, he's probably bothering his lazy dog or trying to grow a beard.

Fan Remakes Resident Evil 2 with RE4 Mechanics

As some yearn for the olden days, some also groan at it. Unlike a fine wine, the first Resident Evil games for PlayStation 1 have not aged particularly well over the past few decades. The first game did receive its own remake back for the GameCube in 2002. While praised by critics, the franchise has since taken a very different creative turn over the years, starting with Resident Evil 4. Seeing as Resident Evil 2 never did get any kind [...]

The Next Fatal Frame Coming to Wii U, Nightmares Guaranteed

As recently announced in Famitsu, the video game world can look forward to the return of Fatal Frame, a franchise guaranteed to scare the piss out of you. The games are based around a general premise, make you explore eerie Japanese settings typically armed with only a camera. You are then encouraged to, as you can guess, take pictures of said ghosts for points. The only problem is concentrating on the ghosts while you sob in fear and think of [...]

Trial of Trails, the Free RPG You Bikeride Through

Over the past decade or so, fitness has really picked up as a strong factor in video game development, revolutionizing the way we play some games today, such as Dance Dance Revolution, Wii Boxing, Kinect Sports, and many more. Maybe you’re just not into any of those though. Maybe you want something more fantastical. Maybe you want something like Trial of Trails, the RPG you play with a stationary bike. It’s as odd as it is intriguing. Trial of Trails [...]

It’s happening, you guys. It’s really happening. Beyond Good & Evil 2 has been confirmed to be a thing for quite a while now, but any amount of information on the much-anticipated sequel is plenty to get fans nice and hyped. Most recently, the first concept art for the new design of protagonist Jade has appeared on Twitter. And, boy, does she look fab.

This weekend at PAX East, I got the chance to check out Distance, the spiritual successor to the free and fantastic Nitronic Rush, from Refract Studios.

Have a look and see if you’re just as excited about Distance as I am. You can pre-order and check out more [...]

PAX East – Orcs Must Die! Unchained Hands-On Impressions

There’s something especially satisfying about tower defense games as you watch your fortress grow and your enemies fall. Orcs Must Die! from Robot Entertainment made its debut as a single-player game pitting you against hordes of orcs armed with your own weapon and an arsenal traps to lure and ensnare your enemies. Naturally, the game has dwelt into multiplayer territory to have players from around the world to test their fortress siege skills against each other. As anticipated, the core gameplay [...]

PAX East – Lichdom: Battlemage Hands-On Impressions

I know I’m not alone when I say that playing as a mage in almost any game is just truckloads of fun. The only problem is that there has always been that little drawback to having cooldowns and a finite amount of “mana” to really unleash the pain and become the ultimate mage you know you’d love to be. Well, the developers of Lichdom: Battlemage sympathize and have sought to create that dream game where you can create and cast [...]

PAX East – World Zombination Hands-On Impressions

Zombies versus humans; it’s been done before, so it all comes down to making it something truly unique. From Proletariat comes a new faction-based strategy game that pits the living and the undead against each other in World Zombination. The general gameplay itself may not sound revolutionary, but it tweaks the standard strategy formula for an interesting new take on the zombie genre. In the demo I played, I got to try my hand at performing as the zombie horde. [...]

PAX East – Nosgoth Hands-On Impressions

I love animations. One of the greatest things about the technological advancements in video games over the past decade has been the ability to make characters move so much more fluidly in the middle of the action. Nosgoth, the latest title from Psyonix and Square-Enix breathes a lovely life into the world of third-person online games with motions that feel very natural, in spite of its otherworldly premise. Nosgoth is essentially a third-person, team-based, action title that features vampires versus some [...]
