Apoch Plays – Insane Decay of Mind (Spoilers)

Posted by

I recently picked up the horror labyrinthian adventure/survival title Insane Decay of Mind on Steam, and have been putting a fair amount of time combing the barren halls for the slightest idea of what to possibly do next. With over two hours under my belt, I decided to go ahead and capture some footage for a slightly different Apoch Plays video, in which I give an impromptu review as I navigate the third level. What was going to be a quick five minute effort became an inadvertent finale. Spoiler alert, I reach the end, and it’s, well, something…

Bandcamp Breakdown – Suggestions for the Week of April 19th

Posted by

I know I normally present at least five releases with this series, but, truthfully, I just didn’t really come across all that much worthwhile since the last time I did a breakdown of Bandcamp. So, this week, there’s only three, but they’re well worth checking out, I sweat! Sadly, there’s no free downloads, but hey, we’re talking quality here as opposed to instant gratification. It’s substance over abundance this week, so buckle down and prepare to discover three new releases you otherwise would have overlooked. And, as always, if you know something I don’t, feel free to shoot me a message at apoch@apochs.net with the subject “BANDCAMP BREAKDOWN” for consideration in the next round!

Bandcamp Breakdown – Suggestions for the Week of March 22nd

We all know the drill by now, and if not, here’s a quick recap: Every day there’s a number of new releases hitting the digital market powerhouse that is Bandcamp, and I stop by and plow through the daily releases, quickly skimming until I pick up on something that sparks my interest. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen last week given the recent job hunt my fiancee is going through, and my being the driver to each and every single one of the interviews. Sorry about that. But, I’m back, and here’s some new stuff that you, much like I, probably overlooked that is well worth checking out! So, if there’s an older one I might have missed out on, comment below with the link and why you think people should check it out! I could really use the suggestions because, seriously, I forgot how exhausting job hunting can be and can always use some more metal.

Bandcamp Breakdown – Suggestions for the Week of March 8th

Every day there’s a number of new releases hitting the digital market powerhouse that is Bandcamp. So much so that most of the benefits to its easy-to-use interface for creators and wanderers often makes it impossible to find anything of remote interest, burying a great deal of potential. In fact, in the metal world alone, the amount of new material dropping is completely overwhelming. However, I do stop by and plow through the daily releases quite often, quickly skimming until I pick up on something that sparks my interest. So, I decided to go ahead and start a weekly series that highlights five recordings I found on there that I think is worth checking out, or at the very least is from a band with plenty of potential. This won’t be limited to strictly new releases, though, for the most part, the day they hit the service is when I’ll mostly be judging them. However, if there’s an older one you want me to check out that you think would be worth some extra attention, shoot me the link to apoch@apochs.net and I’ll give it a quick once over and see. But, for now, here’s this weeks choices, and I hope you like them.

Review – Where’s My Mommy? (Apoch Plays)

Posted by

If you’ve grown tired of crappy endless runners hitting the Steam marketplace, well, rejoice, as there’s now one centered around feces. Where’s My Mommy? is the tale of young Poopey in search of his mother after a terrible “earthquake” pulls the two apart. In his quest he travels through the colon in hopes of rescuing her before passing through the hole that no life has ever been seen from once it passes through, all the while avoiding a plethora of obstacles and memes along the way. But is this title worth the nearly six dollars US currency, or does it’s Binding of Isaac/Newgrounds style of artwork in the trailer stand as the only aspect of the game worth noting?
