Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack Review

Written by Micah Messer

While Drinkbox studios is hard at work on their next title, Guacamelee, I thought I’d take the time to review their previous PS Vita game, Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack! I’m just gonna come out and say that if you own a Vita, Mutant Blobs Attack is a must buy. One part Katamari, and two parts platformer, this game has you rolling around as a mutant blob, completing puzzles, clearing obstacles and eating everything in sight. Its biggest downside is the length of the game, which sits at no more than 4 hours on your first playthrough, but the price is set at a reasonable $7.99

Yes.. that box does say Hipster Juice.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss Review

Written by Micah Messer

I never thought I’d see the day when an Uncharted game was released without the Playstation powerhouse developer, Naughty Dog, being the folks behind it. Well, that day has come. I went into Uncharted: Golden Abyss knowing full well that it just wouldn’t be able to compete with Naughty Dog’s level of polish. I was terrified that the new developer, Sony Bend, would tarnish the Uncharted name. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Although Uncharted: Golden Abyss doesn’t  keep up with the console titles, Sony Bend does a respectable job of bringing Nathan Drake over to a portable system.

You just couldn’t have an Uncharted game without Nolan North as Nathan Drake. Most of the other key points to the Uncharted experience are here as well, so you can expect top-notch voice acting, entertaining characters, cut scenes recorded through motion capture, clever dialogue and beautiful graphics. Speaking of graphics, holy shit! This game looks absolutely incredible. Notice that I didn’t say “for a handheld game.” No, this game just looks great, period.



Don’t mind if I do.
