Zombie Incident | Review
I know that sometimes the term “old school” is thrown around a lot. Talk of any game that looks, plays and feels like it could have been released back in the days of the Nintendo Entertainment System brings that saying to the front.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask | Review
I’ll be honest. I never played the original Majora’s Mask. Way back when the game was released on the Nintendo 64, I never got around to playing it. I sank countless hours into the game that came before it, Ocarina of Time. But somehow I just never got around to this one. I had heard […]

The folks over at Jackbox Games – the developers of the absolutely hilarious You Don’t Know Jack series – are Kickstarting a brand new game called Quiplash.
The premise is pretty simple, a prompt appears on your television and two players (… or ten house cats if you’re lonely like me) answer within the time limit. Responses are then displayed on the TV and other people waiting to play locally (or viewers watching your Twitch stream) can answer on their own mobile devices. The player who gets the most votes is declared the winner of the round!
Jackbox Games has a rather ambitious schedule ahead of them as they are looking to ship the game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PS3 and PC by the end of this summer. They are seeking $15,000 in funding so that they can put some extra resources into the game and it out to the public super quick. As of the writing of this article they are more than halfway there – with over $8,000 in pledges! Read more »
