Alien: Isolation Review

Written by

The "Alien" franchise is one that needs no introduction for most. Featuring the strong willed Riply as she fought tooth and nail against one of cinema's most badass and beloved horror icons, it quickly gained a following and lies in the hearts of many. Because of this, the series has seen its fair share of game adaptations  over the years, some good, some terrible. Where does the newly released Alien: Isolation lie?

Teamwork: The Link and Zelda Story

Written by

The Legend of Zelda has to be one of most known game series in modern history. So, why is the title so misleading? Let’s think about this for a moment. What does a Zelda game usually encompass? A grand adventure, an evil villain plotting on taking over the world, big dungeons, huge monsters, treasure, a legendary sword and a young boy named Link. But wait, a boy named Link? Where’s Zelda? You would figure in such a blatant title that we would be playing as the titular character but no. Why are we playing as a boy named Link? Where is Zelda in all of this? Why is Link deemed to be the hero of Hyrule?

This week, enigma talks about Digital Devil Saga 2 and his thoughts on the game.

Destiny Review

Written by

Destiny is a very strange game, though only for the experience. Promising to live up to the fame of the Halo franchise, Bungie has created what they feel to be an open world MMO for console players, but with an fps style much in the same vain as Borderlands 2. What we are greeted with is something far less than anticipated. Destiny fumbles from the start, and continues this clumsy pace for a good majority of its runtime. The overall execution is underwhelming at best and downright frustrating at worst.

Does it lean more towards the hardcore fast paced intensity of Melee, or does it keep it slow, floaty, and fun like Brawl. Well let’s dive in and find out.

Sef's Obscure Game Gallery: No One Can Stop Mr. Domino

Written by

Normally when I start a “Sef's Obscure Game Gallery” piece, I weave a story that summarizes the opening of the game in creative fashion. These have ranged from my detailed openings found in Snatcher and the Myst series to the more unique games such as Ronald McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure and the Mario Education games. However, for the first time in my series, I have hit a game that has no story to speak of. To top it all off, this game is so obscure and so nonsensical, that I am willing to do my best to capture the soul and heart of it. Bare with me folks, because this is my own story for this week's game: No One Can Stop Mr. Domino!

The Roost: The History of Super Smash Brothers

Written by

I apologise for my lack of content lately. This was originally going to be an article about whether or not Smash on 3DS and Wii U were competitively viable. Which is why I took the past few weeks to research and learn more about the competitive scene and what made Brawl so bad for it, and in doing so I realised how little I actually care about competitive Smash and the glitches and bugs people exploit in order to play Melee competitively. So instead I decided to do something I love for the fighting franchise I hold so dear to me. The history of Super Smash Brothers!

The Roost: What is a "Gamer"?

Written by

Hello all and welcome once again to The Roost. Shortly before posting my last article on the site I ran into a certain picture on Facebook. It was a very nice picture that I liked made by a very talented artist. What I didn’t like about it was the captioning someone had put over it. It read “Oh you’re a gamer? Repost and name 28 games other than Minecraft and Angry Birds”. So today on The Roost, we’ll be discussing a question I came up with after seeing this. What exactly is a “gamer”?
