Freeware Reviews: Zineth and Seedling
Posted Oct 14, 2012, 2:34 PM by David KempeBack in September, I also reviewed the games Zineth and Seedling, and while the two have little in common, they do stem from a few influential series that I adore. Zineth has some incredible ties to Jet Set Radio, while Seedling features some great Legend of Zelda Gameplay. Here are my Gaming on the House reviews for each on Gaming Symmetry:
Posted Sep 12, 2012, 6:37 AM by David KempeA rare occasion for Gaming on the House, I reviewed a free-to-play game with Tribes: Ascend by Hi-Rez Studios. I wanted to review it partly to share my thoughts on how I don't consider it a "pay-to-win" game, and partly because I've been having so much fun playing it. While the game can be frustrating at times, the game gives off a terrific sense of personal accomplishment when you begin to understand how all the physics work. This is simply the best game of capture the flag I've played in years.
Year of the Solar System
Posted Sep 12, 2012, 6:29 AM by David KempeAugust was the final month in NASA's "Year of the Solar System," an educational venture that took place over the course of one martian year. Of course, this was also the month that we landed the Curiosity rover on the surface of Mars, so that was pretty exciting as well!Gaming on the House celebrated the success of the program by dedicating the month to the program's final listed theme of "Discovering New Worlds" by looking at a few space exploration games to be picked up for free - two of which were even made by NASA.Moonbase Alpha - a cooperative lunar colony repair simulatorMars Rover Landing - a step by step game for Kinect that simulates the rover's landingThe Desolate Hope - a deep space colony where humans sent robots to simulate how to best colonize the planet
Vanity Projects, Run-on Sentences, and the return of IWBTG
Posted Jul 27, 2012, 8:04 AM by David KempePlenty of exciting stuff over the past month. Our GameFAQs petition for Top 10 usage data was submitted for approval by site administration and hopefully will be implemented sooner than later on the site for everyone. We've also gotten personal over on Gaming Symmetry, to which I've joined Ali and Alice in posting my Top 12 Games. We also banded together to initiate a new "Author's Choice" feature which we hope to continue through a variety of topics; our first entry went up in mid-July on Overrated Games.Gaming on the House also continued, reviewing the game Run, which features an intriguing method of relaying the story to the player, as well as I Wanna Be The Guy: Gaiden, the first installment of what will be an episodic sequel/sidequest to the original. IWBTG:G comes at a special time for Gaming on the House, as the feature recently celebrated its 1 year anniversary along with the rest of Gaming Symmetry, and it just so happens that the game bookends the year nicely with the original IWBTG, which is where Gaming on the House got it's start back in July 2011!
