Seven Deadly Sins Represented in Video Games

I’ve been fielding questions about religion lately as a result of my daughter attending Catholic school. While she shares with me what she’s learned, I get to share information with her about how Jesus wasn’t actually white, or about how sometimes men love men and women love women and that’s just great. It’s fun. Anyway, this topic got me thinking, and it’s prompted me to do some deep research about religion. While looking at the Seven Deadly Sins, I thought [...]

Twinfinite’s Holiday Gift Guide for the Gamer on the Go

Note from Editor Yami: When you simply can’t stay home anymore (and are probably dragged out), mobile gaming will be your best friend.

I’d used all my bombs and ropes in a previous level, and thanks to an arrow and a surprise snake I have one heart left. I could use my bomb to blast an adjacent wall, but I might need it later. I could use my last [...]

La-Mulana Review – In These Ruins, No One Can Hear You Scream

Difficulty varies wildly in video games nowadays from the dramatically easy to the punishingly difficult. Still, you can beat most games of the current generation… except La-Mulana. Well, I couldn’t beat it, try as I might. There are games nowadays that hold your hand when you seem to have been lost for hours or have died a set number of times; La-Mulana is not one of those games. This game grabs your hand instead and breaks your thumb for fun, [...]
