Home Review | Indie Game Review

video
Hey everyone, Cinnamon730 here, and we’ve got a pretty spoopy indie game to review for you today. The game that I’ve reviewed for this month is called Home: a unique horror adventure. It was developed by Benjamin Rivers Inc. What’s really interesting is that this game is available on the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita, Steam, and iOS. With...

Indie Game Review – Life is Strange

video
Hey everyone, Cinnmon730 here with another Indie Game Review! This week, we’re going to take a look at Life is Strange. Life is Strange is a decision based RPG, but with a bit of a twist. Most decision based RPGs have you decide on something, and when you see that you don’t like the outcome, you restart the level. This...

Stardew Valley Review | Indie Game Review

video
Stardew Valley is a farming RPG in which you leave the tortures of modern life and escape to your grandfather’s old farm. Think Harvest Moon, except with actual quests and dungeons. One thing that sets this farming game apart from others is that you really don’t have to be a farmer. You can survive by not growing any crops at...

Dyscourse Review- Indie Review #2 (IndieBox)

video
At PAX East 2016, we came across a booth for a monthly subscription called IndieBox. Every month, they send out a "Collector's Box" of top indie games that include a digital and physical copy of the game along with other collectible goodies from the game itself. The box only costs about $25 a month.   The second IndieBox we received was for...

Books v. Movies: A Series of Unfortunate Events

Hello, and welcome to this week's edition of Books v. Movies! This week, I will be going over "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events." I read the series way back in the fifth grade, and remember being really excited when the movie came out. I don't remember being particularly annoyed with any parts of it. Even watching it again, I...

Book Review: The Fallen Series

Hey guys! This week, I'll be reviewing the entire "Fallen" series by Lauren Kate. Why the whole series and not just one book? Well, after reading the entire series, the details get jumbled and it's still one very large story line. That being said, let's get started. Warning: Spoilers ahead! There are four books in the series- five if you count the little "Fallen...

Book Review: Fathers & Other Strangers

Here we go with the cheesy romance novels."Fathers & Other Strangers" is considered to be a "harlequin superromance." That being on the cover alone is enough to make anyone groan at the idea of reading it. And yet, as soon as I picked it up, I was sucked into the world that Evelyn A. Crowe created on the pages....

Books vs. Movies: The Host

I am sure that most people cringe at the thought of another Stephanie Meyer book. After all, the "Twilight" books and movies, were thought to be targeted to teenage girls. In retrospect, I do admit that the first two books were absolutely horridly written. The first two movies were terrible as well. But, if you pay attention, you notice that the...

Book Review: Tricks by Ellen Hopkins

I must say, I honestly didn't expect to like any of Ellen Hopkins' books. When you first open the book and leaf through the pages, it looks really simple. While all of her books are simple to read, the content is anything but.  Her book "Tricks" is no exception. Warning! Spoilers and mature content ahead. There are five main characters in "Tricks," all of...
