Quipbox is Jackbox Games' Kickstarter Project

Every second week or so, I host a board-game night at my house. This has served as an excuse for me, personally, to break out of the video game routine and try something a little different. However, after the release of the Jackbox Party Pack (a collection of games from YDKJ makers Jackbox) it seems all anyone wants to play anymore is Drawful.

Toejam and Earl Resurrected on Kickstarter

If you were a gamer in the ‘90s, and owned a Sega Genesis, then the chances are pretty damn good that you were also a fan of Toejam and Earl. The Genesis saw two outings of the intrepid heroes and they became popular enough characters in their time that a lot of people saw them as the secondary mascots for the Genesis alongside Sonic the Hedgehog.

While an attempt to bring them back was made in the early 2000s (on the original Xbox) the series has been pretty much dead ever since.

Digital space in print: An exploration of narrative potential

Video games are pretty cool, guys. You know what else is cool? The things that video games can inspire, especially when that inspiration is realized in another medium.

This Month In Crowdfunding - January 2014 [Part 1]

It’s still too early to say if crowdfunding will be a major and lasting influence on the gaming industry. We have yet to see just how many of these games are actually going to be completed, and just what affect unfulfilled promises will have on backer confidence. For the moment however, crowdfunding is a pretty major force in the indie game scene.

In the interest of keeping you fine folks up to date with certain things, and to further show a project that the Shogun Gamer staff holds dear to their hearts, I thought I would give y’all a general update on the Kaiju Combat Kickstarter campaign

Energy Hook Debut Trailer Shows Intense Action and Thrills

Late last month a game was released that totally took me by surprise. No, I wasn’t taken aback by an obvious heavyweight like Dishonored as it was instead the small PlayStation Mobile game Sixty Second Shooter Deluxe that had me completely hooked in every regard.
