This episode is about games that sold because of demos. Not because of their own demos, but because they had demos of other games packed in.
The Agonizer is for all posts that don’t fit in any other category, including comic book reviews, book reports, editorials, rants, and more!
The Suspect reviews Super Mario 3D World, Nintendo’s sequel to Super Mario 3D Land.
With more and more computer-animated movies, and non-animated movies that rely heavily on CGI, does this mean that cartoons are now all striving for realism? …Joey doesn’t know, but here are his thoughts on “realism” in animation, anyway!
The Suspect takes a critical look at Beyond: Two Souls, the recently released psychological action thriller game for PS3 starring a mo-capped Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe.
Just in time for Halloween (if you’re in the continental US, and watching literally in the next few hours), Roland takes a sidelong look at Cold Fear, another Resident Evil ripoff in the vein of Blue Stinger, Dino Crisis, or Deep Fear (two of which are exactly the same game as this), and realizes his irrational hatred of Ubisoft was pretty rational after all.
Watch the horror of Joey’s crossover with undead music reviewer Soundbite! Together, they take a stab at Avenged Sevenfold and their animated music video featuring good ol’ mass murdering and necrophilia. Let the ghoul times roll!
It’s the biggest, baddest, buggiest MechWarrior game of all time! Part 4 of the MechWarrior retrospective continues with the standalone expansion pack to MechWarrior 2 called Mercenaries.
Roland played Grand Theft Auto V for more than a hundred hours, a handful of which contained actual gameplay! It’s flawed, rough around the edges, and rough around the middle, with many of GTA 4’s best mechanics run through the strainer of Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. By which we mean ruined.
And now, the Animated Heroine begins the final ten!
It’s the second and final part of Sofie’s list of her favorite anime shows!
It’s Deadly Premonition Part 2: Deadlier Premonition! Tom continues his walkthrough of the psychological horror game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that has just a bit too much in common with Twin Peaks.
Sofie covers a somewhat neglected subject here at the Agony Booth, and counts down her top ten favorite anime series.
The expansion pack to MechWarrior 2 was released in the same year, and adds a couple of things, most of which are broken. As you might be able to tell from this review, Roland’s not really a fan.
The Animated Heroine continues to count down her favorite animated films!
The Animated Heroine continues her countdown of her favorite animated films, with the next five movies on her list, including two entries from Studio Ghibli, an Oscar nominee, and more!
Ursa reviews a podcast posing as news, ads, and announcements for a fictional desert community where the sun is hot, the gay love interest is beautiful, and strange fangirlish notions pass through our heads as we try to sleep. Also, there’s a floating cat. Welcome to Night Vale…
Part two of Roland’s MechWarrior retrospective covers 1995’s MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat, the real codifier of the series and one of the best remembered, with good reason.
It’s the first of a five-part series, as the Animated Heroine counts down her favorite animated films of all time, starting with numbers 25 to 21.
Do you hear that, Zach? It’s season 2 kicking off! Tom does a walkthrough of the 2013 director’s cut of Deadly Premonition, the psychological horror game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that has just a bit too much in common with Twin Peaks.
In which Ursa sings, Sofie sings, a mysterious man in a mask sings, and also, we talk a bit about Phantom of the Opera. Because nothing says “Happy 75th Episode!” like The Plot, It Goeth Thusly: The Song!
