Welcome to BGH:HQ - BlueGunstarHero HeadQuarters! This site chronicles my somewhat eclectic ramblings about games and the gaming industry.
Game discussions, reviews, top 10 lists, and more can be found in the archived subsections below, but if you want to get right into the content, feel free to try out my own version of the dice palace. Squares are updated over time, so you never know what you may come across!



Recent Announcements

  • October is for Horror Games
    This October, Gaming on the House will be reviewing some recent horror games every week until Halloween. I'll be updating this entry as new reviews go up.

  • Freeware Reviews: Zineth and Seedling
    Back 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:

  • Tribes: Ascend
    A 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
    August 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 simulator
    Mars Rover Landing - a step by step game for Kinect that simulates the rover's landing
    The 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
    Plenty 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!
