Another ten indie games reviewed and another article talking about all the great stuff that makes the indie market what it is. But before you we get to that, you all know the drill. It’s time to talk about the indie games that I reviewed and see which ones were the best. Now there isn’t gonna be any YIIKs or We Happy Fews this time. Every game was a game I enjoyed. Yeah, some more than others, but there wasn’t a bad game this time, and thank goodness. But don’t worry, the next few will have some real stinkers. So let us see which games are the best and which are the least best.

This review is going to be… a bit harder to talk about. So I bought a game called Revolution 1979: Black Friday, a game that is based on the actual Black Friday of 1979 where thousands of protestors were shot and killed for protesting against their ruler. It was the darkest moment during the Iranian Revolution but is practically never discussed outside of the country. That is where 1979 Revolution comes to discuss matters.



1979 Revolution follows the experience of Reza Shirazi as he is interrogated for information on his involvement with the revolution and his connections to the groups...

Oh man, first 2064, now we’re talking about this game. I feel like the moment I was honest about my sexuality I started to notice homosexual games more and more, not that I’m complaining. I can, however, complain about the possible seedy practices that happened behind the scenes of this game, as mentioned in NikPiks, but…. Don’t focus on that right now. Let’s just talk about the game itself, and see if it manages to be good on it’s own. Let us talk about Dream Daddy.



Now you probably remember seeing this game all over the place a few years back. Every major let’s player was...

Have you ever played Dark Souls and went onto the PvP that the community creates? I layed Dark Souls III and tried out the PvP and had way more fun with it than literally anything that was put into the single player story. I really enjoyed it and wondered if there was any game with combat like this that was just PvP. And wouldn’t you know it, there was. Not with weapons, of course, but you take what you can get. So let us talk about Absolver



So Absolver is about… uh… monks with masks or… something… Hang on, let me pull up a Wikipedia page. Alright, so the game followed a group...

I never did play Octodad, a game that was said to be unique, if frustrating in its own way. Neither did I play I Am Bread, also frustrating with it’s gameplay. I never understood the appeal of games that try to anger you unless there is a unique spin to it or something good. And I think waiting for that paid off, because today, we’ll be talking about one of the funniest written indie games I’ve played, Manual Samuel



Manual Samuel follows the tale of Samuel obviously, a trust fund baby who has never had to work a day in his life and has had everything practically handed to him. That...

Time to jump on the trend and make my own top 20. Now I've played a fair amount of games and it was pretty difficult to get a solid 20 down but I think I've got what I need.

Before we begin, just gonna give a little honourable mention to ICO and The Shadow of The Colossus who, unfortunately didn't make the list.

Now then, let's begin!

#20-Super Mario World
Starting off the list is a fanfavourite and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna killed for it being this low but who cares. This is a very enjoyable game, even if you're not a fan of Mario. There's no real story other Peach being kidnapped but who cares...

Man, the fighting game community is lame. They make fun of Super Smash Bros Melee all the time, all they care about is some guy from an old fighting game called Fatal Furry, and they never shut up about the Arks System. Why would anyone care? What is this dumb indie game? Divekick? Sounds like a dumb move. Where’s the true indie game title, Up+Smash? That’s all I care about!- Where am I going with this joke again?



Divekick, an indie title made by fighting game fans for fighting game fans. And people who buy weird indie games cause they have dumb internet web series. What a coincidence....

Well here comes the briefest article of In-Indie I will probably ever write simply because of the game being very simplistic. Have you ever wanted to play indie games on your phone? Me neither and continuing to purge playing games on mobile from my general area, I decided to play this mobile classic once it came to Switch. And today, we will be talking about Reigns.



Reigns starts out in the year 1000. You are a king who is destined for great things, only though you come from a cursed lineage, a curse that will continue for a thousand years. During those thousand years, you are tasked with...

You know, through my time playing and reviewing all these indie titles, a thought came to me all of a sudden. It was buried deep down, like the knowledge was there, but I never truly noticed until now. But after today's game, I can say with 100% certainty… Indie games are fucking gay!



And I don’t mean gay as an insult like in teh early 2000s like, “What are you, gay?”. I mean like actually homosexual. Night in the Woods, Undertale, VA-11 HALL-A, Red Strings Club, Dream Daddy, all these games are huge gay and I am content with that. Being a connoisseur of the genders myself…....

Remember Top Gear? Well, I don’t. I never played it… I honestly don’t know the best way to start this review for In-Indie… Horizon Chase Turbo, everyone!



So Top Gear was a really popular game back in the day. Pretty big in America and Japan, but Brazil is where Top Gear really got it’s popularity. I don’t know what it is with Brazil and racing games, but they flock to those games. And so, a little indie company based in Brazil that goes by the name Aquiris Game Studio created Horizon Chase: World Tour in 2015. Three years later, they created a successor?... Remake?... Sequel?......

It seems that every few months, you always hear about that new indie title that is a true Dark Souls successor. Hollow Knight is the new Dark Souls, Blasphemous is the new Dark Souls, Cuphead is the new Dark Souls- Wait, what? But there was one game that went almost under everyone’s radar and was less discussed. Maybe it had a following, but compared to Hollow Knight, it was practically unheard of. And this game goes by Salt and Sanctuary



Taking place in a fictional kingdom with characters looking like they crawled out of a Newgrounds game, you find your character left on a deserted...

Another month, and another series of ten indie games to talk about. This time, we got no stinkers this time. Maybe a few games that could be seen as nothing to grand, but I assure you, all good indie titles, and all worth your time. No We Happy Fews or YIIKs here, ladies and gents. And we’re starting ourselves off with a real treat today, one of the best indie games out there. That’s right, it’s the one and only, Minecraft- Cuphead, yeah. That’s the one I meant



Cuphead and his pal, Mugman, they like to roll the dice. After stumbling upon a casino owned by the Devil, they wager...

Hello there! Welcome to a new series of mine where I take a good old gander at some classic games from my childhood. I'll say what I like, what I don't like, what you can do to beat the game, and how good the title is overall.

This is like a guide AND a review, so keep that in mind while reading. Hope you enjoy!

Also, since episode #1 of this series is one of the hardest goddamn games to exist on this side of the Earth, there will be profanity in this article.

Everywhere.

SO yeah, today's title is a Sega Genesis game by the name of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. Released on November 26, 1993...

Fuck



I’m sorry. I really didn’t want to have to talk about this game. I didn’t even beat it, and for good reason. It’s not a fun game to play. Coming from the guy who could beat YIIK and play a dozen matches on Morphies Law, I could barely get through the first of three stories and gave up around the second cause the game glitched out a necessary item and I just decided fuck it, what’s the point of prolonging my suffering. So...

Fuck the intro! Fuck the development discussion! Fuck all the jokes I had written for this article! Fuck all of it! Let’s talk about mother fucking Katana Zero!



Okay, so in all seriousness, before I get way too hyped, let’s actually discuss what Katana Zero is about. You play as a katana wielding samurai wannabe named Zero who works for a mysterious organization and does assassinations. Your goal is the ultimate destruction of a fictional drug by the name of Chronos, which is highly addictive, so addictive that anyone who uses Chronos will die from withdrawal, but it grants the user...

I think one of my favorite things about indie games (Aside from the sheer passion of creators that want to do their own thing) is the visuals they go for. From Hollow Knight’s charming dot eyed art to the amazing hand drawn movements of Skullgirls to the old 30s cartoon aesthetic of Cuphead, all of these games have an art style that drew me to them and made me want to play these games. But hey, a simple cel shading can also appeal to me. And that brings us to Lethal League Blaze



Starting out as a flash game called Lethal League (Which you can apparently play on the PS4 store now), Lethal...

Already, everyone, I’m gonna level with you. I haven’t been out of my house in three weeks. I haven’t seen the son, I only leave my room to eat or use the bathroom, and I’ve been glued to my chair for so long that it has left a permanent mark of my ass. And why is it that I have been in such a horrid state? Because I’ve been playing nothing but Slime Rancher.



Where do I even begin to talk about a game such as this. This is a game that feels so well crafted and so perfectly made that you can feel the developers love and care in it. They make updates frequently for the game and...

Let this indie title be a lesson to anyone wanting to review games, if you play a game weeks or even months in advance before you actually talk about it, always go back to it, especially if it’s an online title. Cause it may change things so much that it will also change your entire opinion, either for the worse or for the better. Thankfully, this is for the better.



So to elaborate, I am not a fan of online shooters. I played a bit of Team Fortress 2 back in the day, but never got too crazy into it, played online modes of CoD 4 and Halo, but not excited. And Overwatch makes me wanna...

A lot of video game characters have a lot of occupations. Much like real life. However, there are those video game characters who really suck at their jobs. So, today, I am going to talk about the ten video game characters who are not very good at their jobs. Now, the rules are simple. Only one game per franchise. However, for one game in particular, I am excluding my play before put rule, just so I can put it here. Now, with all that said, lets start the list.
