REVIEWS Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

Citizens of Earth Review
Do you like turn-based RPGs? Do you enjoy laughter? Does your hair contain enough product to qualify you to be VP of an entire planet? If so, then you'll enjoy playing Citizens of Earth.

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

What do these ratings mean?

I have an abusive relationship with this game.  Even though it treats me bad, and smacks me around, I come crawling back for more.

Because at it's core, this is a fun game.  You ride your extreme gear (aka Marty Mc Fly worthy hoverboard) through races while doing tricks and being like all extreme and stuff. (lol)  And it is a ton of fun to blast through the tracks at high speed, pulling off tricks and riding your opponents turbulence.  Now if only there was a friggin' easy mode! 

You see 9/10 times, the A.I controlled characters are a half a lap ahead of me and I rarely have a chance to win.  The computer goes for the throat every friggin' time with no mercy.  Personally, I know that I'll never (ever) beat the story mode the first time, so I know I'll never unlock the other characters, tracks, extreme gear (Rocket shoes (like in "Sonic Chaos") and Hover bikes) there's also a mission mode, where you have to accomplish certain goals to unlock more stuff, but again I'll never see it.

The graphics are great, the music is great, the controls are simple.  And it is a fun racing game.  Now If only it wasn't so hard.  But like I said, even though I rarely win, I have so much fun blistering through the tracks, that I still play it.  Sad.. I know.
