Kyle Scarboro

I am a 29th epic level gamer. My skills are not dying of dysentery, finding the princess in the first castle, learned the barrel roll at a young age, honorary Pokemon master (awarded by Google), wears knee guards for adventuring, and will never tell lies about any baked goods. Using my ultra turbo FX gaming abilities, I have dedicated my current life to games and defeating the forces of evil! (Enter song montage here) I am an audio major out of Seattle, WA and I like creating and working on game sounds and music. RPG's are my bread & butter, but I love all sorts of games. If it has an amazing soundtrack, you bet your @$$ I'll be playing it or have played it. I will be focusing on Indie, Rhythm, and RPG games mostly.

Is Mountain A Form Of Modernism Or Just Another Screensaver?

Is Mountain a form of modernism or a screensaver? On one hand, Mountain offers a serene landscape and a breathtaking view of a mountain. On the other hand, it ages and becomes its own identity.

ITS: Into The Stars

Word around the information super highway is that this little game, aptly named Into the Stars, is a hybrid of Star Trek Commander and FTL: Faster Than Light, but is it really? The people have spoken and the people are generally right. Into the Stars is filling the void of the lack of spaceship commander based games that are out there. With inspiration gathered from these games and mixing it with a collection of modern ideas and...

Kôna: Day One or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Canadia

Let me just say that out of the gate, Kôna Day One captures the idea and view I have of Canada: Ice Age. Heh, all joking aside, I really liked this game. I got to see a little of it at PAX Prime last year and I was intrigued with what they were going to do with it. This game is a multi-episodic game and Day One just refers to Episode One, so if you thought this was an...

Darkest Dungeon: “There Can Be No Bravery Without Madness!”

Darkest Dungeon is the birth child of indie game developers Chris Bourassa and Tyler Sigman with the help of their studio, Red Hook Studios.

Darkest Dungeon is a Kickstarter funded, Roguelike Gothic RPG, and was successfully funded back in February 2014 and earned over $300,000 when only asked for $75,000.

Celebrating 20 Years of Pokémon!

Want to feel old? This year marks the 20th anniversary of Pokémon. It is crazy how quickly twenty years have passed since Pikachu captured the hearts of so many children. (It does not look like he plans to give back your hearts anytime soon.) After twenty years, the Pokémon franchise is stronger than ever. Still releasing games, trading cards, new anime series, manga, and more. What do you do when you have such a huge fan base after...
