    Edward McMillen's contraction of Zelda and Spiritual Abuse is sheer brilliance.

    Team Meat is not one to shy from utilizing outrageous themes to embellish their games with. Perhaps, even those who have observed the founders of Team Meat for some time may have the impression that t...

    I've been playing Binding of Isaac with and without the DLC and it is possibly one of the most addicting game I've played in quite some time. At first glance it doesn't look much better than any other...

    Binding of Isaac is an unique adventure for those willing to die a lot.

    Rated on August 16, 2012 by Thortheus

    Binding of Isaac is a dungeon crawler that is completely random. You can get better at the game, but to beat it, you need some dumb luck. The most amazing thing is the variety of gameplay for such a...

    Just perfect!

    Rated on October 01, 2011 by neolink_854

    THIS is something you don't see every day! A perfect addictive game that follows the theme of Abraham and Isaac and STILL feels right and wrong. Don't get me wrong though. When i mean wrong it's...
