We Review: Need for Speed

Need for Speed first appeared 21 years ago back in 1994 for DOS and the first generation Playstation (and two other consoles, for those information purists). The game did well enough to warrant a sequel in 1997, and there has since been a new Need for Speed game almost every single year after that. Sometimes we even got two, lucky us! Now in its 22nd iteration, the newest game in the series, titled simply Need for Speed, makes its debut on the current generation of consoles. I gear up, rev my engines, and go full throttle as I race and drift my way through this review to see what it’s about.

How to go to Space, Explained in Simple Words

XKCD and Minute Physics team up to create an informative video on how to go to space. Instead of throwing complex terms like gravity, escape velocity, and rockets at the viewer, they use ten hundred simple English words to break it down. You certainly don’t need to be a rocket scientist to understand how to get the fire-water filled up-goer into space. Check it out.

We Review: Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash

Chibi-Robo (which literally means “small robot”) is a 10cm small robot on a mission to save the Earth. His first appearance was ten years ago, in 2005 on the GameCube, helping a family with their various issues. Since then, he’s appeared in a few more games, but in this latest outing, he’s fighting off an alien menace. Let’s see what the diminutive droid is up to in his latest adventure!

Black Holes are Assholes

Black holes are like the most terrifying serial killers in the universe. You shouldn’t need reasons to stay away from black holes but if you’re looking for one, here’s a little animation for you.

In this artist rendering from NASA, a star passes a little too close to a black hole and experiences what is called a “tidal disruption”. The star is torn to pieces and the black hole wears the debris like a memento. Check it out below.

We Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri-Force Heroes

The newest game in the Legend of Zelda series, subtitled Tri-Force Heroes, is the eighteenth game in the series since its inception 29 years ago. Link has come a long way since that first adventure (well, they’re all different incarnations of Link, really), and now we have three Link characters all playing cooperatively together in the same adventure. Does it work well? I don my green Hylian garb, grab my bow, bombs, boomerangs, (Ed: And my axe!) and master sword, and head out into the Drablands to see what’s up.

We Review: Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water

Project Zero (called Fatal Frame in the US), is a survival horror game series based on the concept of exorcising ghosts by using a device called the Camera Obscura. Think Ghostbusters armed with ancient cameras, just WAY more terrifying. The series is almost fifteen years old now, and Maiden of Black Water is the 5th game in the main series. A number of years back, we got a chance to review the Wii version of Project Zero 2, so it’s interesting to see how far forward the series has come since then. And since it’s the month for scary things… come, take my disembodied hand and let me tell you a tale of spine-chilling terror.

We Review: The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone

When we reviewed the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt earlier this year, we proclaimed it one of the best RPGs in existence. We still stand by that opinion, but if you’ve drunk the last drops that the cup of the Witcher 3 can hold, and find you’re still not sated, then good news! There’s a nice, big expansion pack for the game out now called Hearts of Stone. Should you play it? Shouldn’t you? Well, I played it to find out.

We Review: Rebel Galaxy
