Review: The 2D Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character

Awesome.  Need I say more? 2DAoROC begins with a bomb going off and scattering all of the baby octopi around the world.  It’s up to 2D Rotating Octopus Character to save the day!  The game is a two button mini …

Review: HOARD (PSP)

Review: Pac-Man Championship Edition DX

One of the first games I ever got for my old Sega Genesis was Ms. Pac-Man.  It was fun for awhile, but eventually, you can only play so much pac-man for so long.  I wasn’t sure what to expect from …
