Be a wiseguy in Guns, Gore & Cannoli

One of the most fun couch co-op games I have played recently has got to be ‘Guns, Gore & Cannoli’. Imagine an American mobster movie set in the roaring twenties. Now, just ad zombies!
Come on, zombies make everything better. (Except real life, zombies in real life would not make it better!)

In ‘Guns, Gore & Cannoli’ you play as Vinnie Cannoli, a mobster who is called over to Thugtown to find a goodfella who is gone missing. Once you arrive at the harbour, you can tell, the folks in Thugtown are weird. They … are … ZOMBIES! Fighting your way through a city overrun by zombies, you encounter the opposing mob family as well as some WW1 type soldiers. All this while you are trying to look for your lost pal and find answers for the zombie-outbreak. Along the way you unravel sneaky mafia ways and government conspiracy.



This game came out in fall 2015, but I still have a good time playing it. The 2d graphics and animations are hand drawn. This is nice and all, but the real seller is the action packed gameplay. This game is a solo campaign game. Screw that, just call over a buddy hand them an extra controller (up to 4 players), take out your tommy gun and wreak havoc upon the zombies! They are the most fun of the game, you have little drunk leprechaun zombies, with their feet tied to a balloon, burping deadly fumes, fat butcher zombies that explode when you kill them, guts all over your screen, and that is just naming two of them. There is a plethora of guns that you pick up in the game, even a flamethrower (which is my fave). If you are low on health just eat a cannoli and you are good to go.

Belgian developers Monkey Studios and Claeysbrothers made a fun game to play on game night. You know, as a break between the FPS and MOBA or that board game you keep losing at.

Guns, Gore & Cannoli is available on PC, Mac, Playstation 4 and Xbox One

Submachine: A Game Series for Adventurers

You are alone in a basement. And you need to get out. Simple, eh? Maybe not. What begun as just one entry by Mateusz Skutnik, became a fan-favourite series in the indie game scene, especially for the lovers of adventure games. The player needs to use items in an “escape room” environment to solve puzzles and find their way out of the basement they are trapped in. At the same time, despite the lack of other characters, you constantly have a feeling that you are not alone. Add to that the use of ambient music (à la “Myst” series), and you make this a game (and subsequent series) a timeless, atmospheric experience. The series started in  mid-00’s, and slowly the creator would release new entries every now and..

Bambi Meets Godzilla. Yes, Really.

When you think of classic animation, what comes to mind first? Probably, iconic movies such as The Lion King or Toy Story, right? But what about another animation classic, Bambi Meets Godzilla. Wait, what? In 1969, Marv Newland made this student film, while experimenting with animation. The plot is very simple: Bambi (yes, the deer) is just chilling, when suddenly he gets stepped by Godzilla. That’s it. The 90-second long clip is absurd, hilarious, but also innovative for its time. It has even been considered as worthy of preservation by the Academy Foundation (those people who hand out the Oscars), and received a couple of sequels too. Early animation was crazy. Marv Newland went on to make a lot more animated films and series (including some in the..

The World’s Most Expensive Game

There are many games on the Steam platform that can be quite expensive. Especially if you add DLC for skins, characters, and stages, the amount you need to spend might reach thousands of euro. But what is the price you need to pay if you are looking for Steam’s most expensive single, standalone game? Well, one of the newest games available on the platform, The Hidden and Unknown goes for a whooping 1.949,09€! No, your eyes are not deceiving you. The game was developed by ProX, a person or studio (we are not sure) famous for bringing you…eh…The Hidden and Unknown. That’s it. That is the only game they have ever released on Steam. We haven’t played the game (obviously), but there are some walkthroughs on YouTube about..
