Apoch Plays – Dungeon Highway

Posted by

It’s the return of the long absent “Five Minute to Kill” series. This time around, I take a look at the Steam version of the mobile title Dungeon Highway. The title is a freemium experience on mobile devices, but the PC version actually costs seven dollars (US). Is it worth it? Well, judge for yourself as I give this indie roguelike endless runner its five minutes.

On a recent visit to my itch.io account, I was greeted with a recomendation to try A Stranger Comes Calling from Oh, a Rock! Studios. The FMV point and click adventure game, which stands as the first entry into the Awkward Steve Legacy, was interesting enough in plot to grab my attention for a let’s play.

Available on a plethora of digital gaming marketplaces and indie sites, Clown House has now become a free download on the Steam marketplace. Of course, this is the first I’ve heard of this free to play (not freemium) title from Aslan Game Studio, creators of Be the Bell, Pawn of the Dead, and Learny Bird.

Earlier yesterday, the new Display of Decay album Dust of Existence happened to appear in my inbox. Given I had a lot to do, I opted to throw it on my media player and give it a spin while on the road. After a few play throughs through of course of this incredibly irritating span of twenty-four hours, I figured I’d throw some of my random thoughts about it into the mix whilest I continue to dig myself out of the mess that slammed during my involuntary downtime…

Blog – Critical Thoughts on Ahab’s ‘The Boats of the Glen Carrig’

Posted by

Back in 2012, I was given the opportunity to check out the then latest full-length album from Ahab. The Giant was a fantastic release that lived up to the group’s self-proclaimed “nautik doom metal” style, and was one of the most engrossing releases I had come across all year.
