11 alternate universes we’d rather be living in

Considering the current state of the world’s affairs, gaming offers many alternate universes that could be so much better. Below are some of our top picks for worlds we would rather exist in at the moment. 1. The Nintendogs+cats Universe There’s this very real and totally not made up law in the universe called “Ash’s law”.

Lost Gaming Gem: Road Trip Adventure

I think we all have that one game which we love regardless of its faults. If I’m brutally honest the game I am going to be discussing today is not mechanically strong at all. Japanese indie dev E-Game’s Road Trip Adventure was an RPG like no other at the time. Even by today’s standards it stands out as being a truly unique experience. Road Trip … Continue reading Lost Gaming Gem: Road Trip Adventure

Awesome Unknown: The Cave

The last thing I expected to happen when buying this game was to be taught morals by an omnipotent crevice.

Set … Continue reading Awesome Unknown: NieR

Sure a few games have tried to explain that war is bad and you should be ashamed of yourself if you think otherwise, but I believe that no game has shown that war is hell as realistically as Valiant Hearts: The Great War. Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, Valiant Hearts is set in 1914, as war breaks out throughout … Continue reading Awesome Unknown – Valiant Hearts: The Great War

Lost gaming gem: Resonance of Fate

Gaming has many hidden gems and Resonance of Fate is one of them. Resonance of Fate is a JRPG that is criminally underrated and was overshadowed by JRPG giant Final Fantasy. When the game came out, Final Fantasy XIII had already been out a couple of weeks and Resonance of Fate fell off the radar. Yet, Final Fantasy XIII was most definitely not the best … Continue reading Lost gaming gem: Resonance of Fate
