Duel Otters Review + GIVEAWAY! [CLOSED]

Growing up with a brother and a sister but only one console between the three of us meant that much of my childhood was spent in never-ending three way tournaments of Doctor Mario or tag-teaming Bubble Bobble.

Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork Review

Full Disclosure: While I did receive a copy of the game for review purposes, all opinions expressed are my own. Some of you might remember Glorkian Warrior from Nerd Burger’s awesome review of the comic Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza. Well, wouldn’t you know it, but Alex from Pixeljam Studios contacted me recently to see if I was interested in reviewing their new game, Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork, which was they made in conjunction with Glorkian cartoonist James Kolchalka.…
