Wonderpod Episode 133

This weeks Wonderpod is full of tricks and treats. Okay so mostly tricks, but we had the closest thing to zombie we could find. Namely glasenator on almost no sleep. On top of that we discussed Halloween and scary stuff. Oh yeah and of course those darn old video games

Sleeping Dogs

General Overview Imagine if you had a game that combined elements of Saints Row, True Crime, Batman Arkham Asylum, Max Payne, and Assassin’s Creed. Imagine if that same game was a sprawling action RPG hybrid being fronted by Square Enix. Sounds too good to be true, right? Strangely enough, Sleeping Dogs seems to combine all […]

Lego City Undercover Trailer

I loved what I saw of Lego City Undercover at E3. It was a game that made me far more interested in the Wii U than I was before E3. Of course, there is the chance the game itself won’t be as good as the trailers. Let’s hope that is not true with this game. […]

Windows 8 Doom and Gloom

By now you may have heard that some game developers are freaking out over the soon to be released Windows 8. If you haven’t, go here for to get general idea of the concerns. We have already talked about this once or twice briefly on Wonderpod. I still felt I like there was more to […]

Risen 2 – Dark Waters

General Overview Is it a pirate’s life for ye? If so, ye needn’t look much further than this one. Sure, it’s got graphical glitches, the controls could be better, the voice acting is just okay, the animations are wonky at best, and the game gets borderline offensive with some stuff, but that aside it’s easily […]

The sheer amount of craziness and mayhem you can enact with this title is enough to get any […]

Hand Holding Vs. Being Totally Lost

Sometimes moderation really is best, as is the case in hand holding vs. being totally lost. What the hell am I even talking about? We’ve all been there. “I know I move the joystick to go forward, thanks. Yes, I’m pretty sure the jump button still makes me jump. Way to go, I never would’ve […]

TCR Comix: Google Plus

Lately, the Internet is all abuzz over the newest “Big Thing,” Google Plus. For the uninitiated, Google Plus is Google’s Pepsi to Facebook’s Coke.  The catch is, right now anyway, it’s pretty exclusive; you need to be invited in order to use it.  On top of all of this, for a little while, Google had […]

RPG of the Year – 2007

Surprisingly, there weren’t as many games this year, but all the same this year was AWESOME. There are 39 games. This was actually a tough year as far as deciding #4 and #5, though the top 3 was obvious even from the get-go. Let’s do this!

RPG of the Year – 2006

Holy shit damn, what a huge year! 57 games! And yes, there was a Sega Genesis game released this year. This is also one of those awkward years where a lot of developers were jumping to the new systems while other ones were still very unsure and wanting to develop stuff on the PS2, GBA, […]
