Backlog Burner Episode 24 :: Deep Rock Galactic

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 2 March 2019, 4:36 pm
I am of the humble opinion that almost everything in life is better enjoyed with a friend or two. Now now, don’t get your snarky replies up and insert foreveralone.jpeg. You know what I’m talking about. Whether it’s movies, music, games or pot, having a friend along for the ride makes the experience much more […]

Backlog Burner Episode 23 :: Yakuza 0

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 16 February 2019, 6:30 pm
Let’s start this featurette with an unpopular opinion. Japenese culture is overrated. Nor am  I a big fan of anything that has anything to do with the said thing. That goes for anime, manga, and whatever the kids enjoy these days. I might very well be wrong but I like to stand uncorrected. That being […]

Backlog Burner Episode 22 :: Mad Max

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 2 February 2019, 6:17 pm
Mad Max and Jay go back a long way. So long in fact that it’s one of the first Hollywood films he ever saw on a rented VCR (wew, remember those days?). He didn’t understand English, let alone know what post-apocalypse stood for. Did it stop him from enjoying the film? Of course not. “They […]

Backlog Burner Episode 21 :: Ryse- Son of Rome

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 19 January 2019, 6:48 pm
Crytek is known for two things- creating games that make you go “hot damn! This looks good!” and making a play on words with the letter Y. I mean just look at it: Far CrY, CrYsis, RYse and even CrYEngine. What’s next, TrYing Too Hard? There was a time when gamers worldwide hailed Crytek as the Messiah of […]

Backlog Burner Episode 20 :: Dragon Age Inquisition

by IndianNoobon Saturday, 12 January 2019, 1:31 am
There are 2 reasons that I did not play Dragon Age Inquisition when it first came out: I was already playing the Witcher 3, and I only have space for 1 RPG in my life at any point in time. The game was not available in India either physically or in the digital store. 3 […]

Backlog Burner Episode 19 :: Sunset Overdrive

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 29 December 2018, 5:54 pm
Open world games and I are not on good terms these days. Rewind time to 2012 and you’ll find a 19-year-old who just couldn’t get enough of open world shenanigans. So what happened between us two? Maybe I grew out of that phase like a person getting past his fear of spiders. Wait…I don’t think that’s […]

Backlog Burner Episode 18 :: Elex

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 15 December 2018, 6:16 pm
We’re all fanboys of one thing or another, especially when it comes to video games. Admit it or not, there will always be a special place in our heart for that one particular video game or video game developers whether it is outright apparent or not (in the case of the so-called intellectuals). Pretty much […]

Backlog Burner Episode 16 :: Mafia III

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 10 November 2018, 6:43 pm
I’ve had a protracted fascination with the American city of New Orleans, thanks in no small part to entertainment media and literature. The Murder of the Crows level in Hitman: Blood Money, the creepy first season of True Detective and a terrible television film called The Librarian managed to arouse the appeal of The City That […]

Backlog Burner Episode 15 :: Just Cause 3

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 3 November 2018, 6:02 pm
Witnessing the smash success of  Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in the mid-2000’s, it’s no wonder why every other developer out there wanted their slice of the pie. EA, Activision, Eidos, THQ, all jumped into the bandwagon to bask in the glory of open-world free roam games. Sure, a lot of them succeeded in their […]

Backlog Burner Episode 14 :: Shadow Warrior (2013)

by Jay Krishnanon Saturday, 20 October 2018, 7:37 pm
If there’s one thing I love more than a retro shooter is a retro shooter which doesn’t take itself seriously. It’s one of the main reasons I fell in love with Shadow Warrior, the second title in the holy trinity of Build Engine games. Starring Chinese badass Lo Wang, the game is choke-full of racist […]
