Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

Prelude I actually found Alwa’s Awakening while requesting a review key for another game about a month or so ago. I was immediately drawn by two things: the art direction and the tag “Metroidvania” attached to the game’s description. Intrigued, I requested a key.

@thecraftingdm review Leave a Comment

One great way to kick a game of Star Wars Imperial Assault or Star Wars: Destiny up a notch is through customization. It is truly awesome how something as small as a token or a door placed on the board can revolutionize your game’s aesthetics. Currently, there are a lot of great outfits with a lot of great custom pieces …

Review – ModMic 5

Rob Kalajian review Leave a Comment

I’m fairly new to the whole video/streaming world and up until recently, I’ve just been recording using my phone or computer’s built-in microphone. Obviously, this isn’t an ideal situation. I had been looking up microphones for a while, debating which one would be best for my needs when I received a press release from Antlion Audio. Antlion’s new ModMic, the …
