    Digital Down-Low for 02/23/24: Fate is in the cards

    Okay, there's a Direct that's airing in the middle of me writing this thread, so *for ocne* I feel like I won't be blindsided by a surprise release after the fact. We're kicking off with not one, but two Deck Building Roguelites this week, and, both alphabetically and by release date, that...

    Digital Down-Low for 02/16/2024: This Peace Is What All Warriors Strive For!

    Ahh, it's Valumtimes Week, a time when little archer-babies are blasting people with arrows so people fall in love with them through brute-forced Munchhausen syndrome. So, whether you've got the wuv of your l'il sweetiedumplin, or the aaaaromantic love you'd have for a big bowl of popcorn...

    Digital Down-Low for 01/26/2024: I'm Going on an Adventure!

    Take it from an expert, it's not as easy as it looks to eat an entire fire hydrant. Screeching to a halt outside your house and screaming "Get in the car, loser!" this week is Lil Guardsman, which is a point and clicky talk-em-up style adventure game, inspired by the likes of Papers Please...

    Digital Down-Low for 01/19/2024: Corporate Psynergy

    No matter what lies your parents taught you, I can not stress this enough, snails are simply *not good at jumping*. We're starting off with the Nintendo Switch Online release! It's a release for the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion pass, which costs more than the regular pass but it has far...

    The Digital Down-Low MERRY SQUISHMAS WINTERTAINMENT-STRAVAGANZA 2023

    Ho Ho Ho, Merry Middle of December, when new video game releases largely dry up until the middle of January. So fill yourself with some mustarded' up crumbs of cheese and sell all your hair for chains you can fight off hairy mountain hermits with. That's the true meaning of Squishmas. Jumping...

    Digital Down-Low for 12/08/2023: An Inauspicious Pumpkin

    Du-Wop-bop-a-doo-wop-do-wop-bam-boom Skittering out from under your cupboard to snatch a few crumbs from a cookie jar this week is a surprise release from last week! Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion, a gussied up and slightly re-squiggled up remaster of, you guessed it, Turok 3: Shadows of Oblivion...

    Digital Down-Low for 12/01/2023: I Want You To Tell Your Friends to Mine For Me

    You can really tell how close the Beastie Boys are from the way they finish each others sentences. Showing up, like, a half hour before you expected them to come and just sitting on your couch eating your snacks while you're in the bathroom this week is Gothic II: Complete Classic, and would...

    Digital Down-Low for 11/24/2023: Recursive Polarities

    Do you ever think that some games are a little *too* video? So we're going to kick things off with something that actually got a surprise release two weeks ago, and which I neglected to include last week because that week was particularly dense; can't nobody say that Octo never does his due...

    Digital Down-Low for 11/17/2023: Like the moon over / the day my genius and brawn /are lost on these fools

    I don't care how sharp its teeth are; a venus fly trap simply can not survive the weight of a full grown Italian man jumping on to it from any height. Sneaking in to your house late at night and turning all your TVs to rubber hose cartoons like the Babadook this week is Karmazoo, a...

    Digital Down-Low for 11/10/2023: Harrier? I Barely Know 'er!

    Are... are venus flytraps delicious? Kicking their legs in the air and yelling "I'm booooooored" during the opening text crawl of a Star Wars movie this week is... a game I have no idea was supposed to exist; Nickelodeon Allstar Brawl 2, the sequel to the Smash Brothers alternative that nobody...

    Digital Down-Low for 11/04/2023: There's more of Gravy than of Grave about you!

    Digital Down-Low for 10/27/2023: ❗

    "Snake, have you ever heard of a *Super* Mario Brother?" "Hrrrm, I heard rumor's that the Italian army was working on a means to double the size of their soldiers, but..." "They aren't rumor's any more; after the Berlin Wall fell, the Italian army perfected the technology, and sold it to the...

    Digital Down-Low for 10/20/2023: Red vs. Blue

    I’ve got half a mind to go down to the train yard, find an engine and just eat it, piece by piece So, as noted in the thread title, there’s a tendency among this weeks games to focus on the conflict between the two colours with the most animosity towards each other, red and blue. And so, in the...

    Digital Down-Low for 10/13/2023: You Played Them Before, Now Play Them Again

    Woah, did you see that cat? Partying in through your front door like a guy made of Disco this week is Long Gone Days, and BOY, was that an inaccurate introductory statement this week. This here is an RPG about a guy conscripted into a clandestine military force who, a little late in the game...

    Digital Down-Low for 10/06/2023: A War, Advanced

    Kids today don't appreciate what Real Music even is! Breaking into a highly secure bankvault with a controlled demolition charge and leaving with millions of dollars worth of bearer bonds this week is Silent Hope, an action RPG that informs us that "One day, a terrible calamity struck a...

    Digital Down-Low for 09/29/2023: Planting Bullets and Planting Seeds

    The weather report today is "Everything outside my house kind of smells like farts", so let's talk about video games instead! We're kicking things off with no fewer than three different flavours of Starman Farm Game this week; Paleo Pines is one where you have t-rexes instead of cows, Harvest...

    Digital Down-Low for 09/21/2023: Good bye, Gloomy Doomsday

    I don't know if Super Mario knows his times tables, you know? I just don't know. So kicking off with a SECRET SURPRISE release from last week, and it was a much appreciated *doozy*; the latest in Nintendo adapting one of its old games to Battle Royale format; F-Zero 99. Because the one thing...

    Digital Down-Low for 09/15/2023: KOMBORTAL MORTBAT!

    The fact that it doesn't doesn't have one of those disclaimers that its a work of fiction and any similarities to any people places etc is a coincidence must mean that Pac-Man really happened. Well I skipped last week, since the release list was kind of thin, and so, we're starting by playing...

    Digital Down-Low for 09/02/2023: Prepare your body for ASTRO TERROR!

    Personally, I don't think you're going to find a better example of a way to illuminate a room than a lightbulb. Candles? You're on notice. Starting off with a break from tradition as I generally just cover what's in the eShop, but this week has Starfield, a video game known for having a Very...

    Digital Down-Low for 08/25/2023: No Gods, No Kings, But, like... a dozen Divine Empresses

    Hey, do the other stooges even *like* Moe? Why did they hang out with him? Normally I stick with eShop releases for raw convenience sake (there's a lot of overlap regardless), but I'd be doing myself a disservice if I didn't mention what is arguably the biggest release of the week; one with...
