6 Cases of Terrible Fashion in Games


In truth, our fashion sense is eternally dictated by the laundry situation, so you know, we’re no Vogue, but we do have eyes and there often comes a point in fashion when that makes all the difference: Lucky for us, when it comes to video games, the same person who designs characters’ dresses also designs the same game’s chainsaw bloodhammers, so […]

The Mosts of 2014 in Gaming


  How’s about we look back at the year 2014 in gaming? Everyone else is doing it. Now, I haven’t played every game to come out last year so I can’t tell you what truly the best game of the year was (what does that even mean with games, as different as they all are?) but I […]

Wasteland 2 – 100 Hours Later


Wasteland 2 was once the most anticipated Kickstarter game on AlienLion.com, remember? Here’s the review, by Allen:     I offered to review Wasteland 2 around release, back when it was still a useful thing to do, but I ran into a problem. How do you criticize something that you want so badly to succeed? It’s not every […]

Here’s Why E3 2014 Was Disappointing


  It’s that time of the year again. Actually, it’s way past that time but there is a point to it. Read on for a slightly different E3 review from MaxImaz:     So, E3 2014 has come and gone and it was a weird one. Everyone, including Microsoft (!), actually did what they had […]

Valve Deserves The Hate


This is a quick one-off opinion piece by Mikee, who has contributed to the old Alien Lion Blog. Stand by for his standalone blog very soon.      It’s almost that time again and I’m not talking about the World Cup, but you didn’t even think I was, did you, nerd? Yes, E3 is just […]

What The Game ‘Journey’ Is Really About


This is a rather unusual piece by our returning guest writer, noBanana. We have no definite opinion here but the whole this is too bizarre not to feature!    Weird games have a weird effect on people. Normally, gamers can’t put together an Internet sentence without emanating some serious psycho vibes but games like Journey […]



As you may know, we like to keep up with some potentially awesome new games that may be a little off the general radar. This usually means Kickstarter, but today, we are happy to share some news, in form of actual in-game screenshots, from Deathfire: Ruins of Nethermore, an independent first-person RPG, helmed by Guideo Henkel.   […]

4 Reasons Why We Don’t Need Anymore Consoles


  It’s not like you need more reasons to love the 50’s, but that’s when man invented both video games and lasers. The decade is basically the guitar solo of human existence but I digress. Ever since gaming appeared, we have been trying to use whatever available technology to make it more awesome, from vector […]

6 Evil Facts About Nintendo


In all the recent outgushing of gaming news, Nintendo has remained as relevant as a pair of testicles on one of those Justin-Bieber-looking kids on Instagram. You couldn’t even tell they had a relatively new console out, which is quite crazy. I mean, it’s the freaking Nintendo! The name alone is synonymous with gaming. Everyone knows […]
