Review: Hector: Badge of Carnage – Ep 1


“If you’re someone who complains about point-and-click adventures being slow, plodding ordeals filled with uninteresting puzzles and boring characters, you might have to rethink your argument after playing Telltale Games’ first foray into adult oriented adventure-gaming fare. The debut episode of Hector: Badge of Carnage–adorned with the snarky subtitle “We Negotiate With Terrorists”–is something else entirely. And whether or not you have the stomach for this demented detective tale depends on your threshold for often naughty and utterly warped humor. Fishing around inside a feces-ridden toilet with a used condom, parlaying favors from morbidly obese hookers, and peddling fake drugs to young rave partygoers are only a few of the many seedy tasks you must undertake in the name of justice. Gross situations and intermittent lewdness may be the norm, but it’s the creative puzzles and memorable characters that make this adventure worthwhile.”

Review: Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 1 – Launch of the Screaming Narwhal

“The early 90s can easily be considered theĀ  golden age of PC adventure games, thanks in-part to the development efforts of a handful of game designers at LucasArts. Games like Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road, and The Secret of Monkey Island are among some of the best adventure titles of that time. Old-school PC gamers may recall with great fondness the humor-infused piratical shenanigans of the Monkey Island series in particular. Though many years have passes since the last island exploits of Guybrush Threepwood, a new Monkey Island adventure is finally upon us. It’s well worth the wait.”
