QCF: Dropsy

he adventure game scene has seen somewhat of a resurgence lately. With new games like Telltale’s Walking Dead, and ports of lost classics like Grim Fandango there’s never been a better time for fans of point and click extravaganzas. Dropsy is in part a tribute to the latter, which brings up a set of small problems. While the feel and story of those old games still stand up, the puzzles and somewhat frustrating logic somewhat spoil them today.

So in this generation, can a very old school point and click adventure game survive when it takes cues from titles that largely get a pass due to the time they were made in? Can charm itself hold up a whole experience? These are both questions that I’ll aim to address in the following review, but perhaps the most important question is the silliest. Do you like hugs?

PPR Games Club: The Walking Dead

ell it’s the new year, you know, the big twenty-thirteen, and what better way to move on then to do a Games Club on our Golden Zonkey awarded Game of The Year title, The Walking Dead. Telltale was able to create a tale of misery and emotion in five episodes, and beyond all of the zombie madness, we learned what it truly is to protect what you love, no matter what the cost. Join us for this latest Games Club with Andrew, George, and special guest Dana, as we test our humanity (or in some cases, cast it aside) in this three hour spanning show where we cover all five episodes from start to finish. Come joins us and keep a box of Kleenex nearby so you can relive the trauma all over again with your favorite podcast, (or not, just listen to the show already!)
