Nantucket First Impressions: Now Hiring

Are you a seasoned harpooner with a steady hand and no next of kin with means to pursue future litigation? Ishmael, legendary Captain of the quaint and barely rotten Melville, is looking for YOU! Become part of a rough-and-tumble crew with just enough experience to ensure that you probably won’t die at sea like the…

Back’s Benlog: Tekken 7

Today’s Title: Tekken 7 (Minor plot spoilers) The fighting games I’ve enjoyed over the years would probably not be considered the most advanced by bigger fans of the genre. I grew up preferring games like Soul Calibur and Mortal Kombat in comparison to something like Street Fighter. For me, what will often decide how much…

Back’s Benlog: Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Today’s Title: Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun (As it was with Hellblade, any story spoilers aren’t intentional but may come about due to how elements of plot effect the mechanics of the game. Read on at your own risk.) There are very few “tactical” games that I’ve gotten into in my life. Whether it…

Back’s Benlog: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

In an effort to chip away at what has become a massive backlog of games, NJoystic is slightly dismayed to present what will be a reoccurring feature, “Back’s Benlog.” This will be an absolutely not brief, way too god damn long look at some of the many games Ben has bought but took forever to…

Steve’s Top Five Games of 2017!

Twenty-seventeen provided an interesting, if somewhat awkward, lineup of games for me to play. It was certainly a great year for releases, but only about half of the games I played were new. Much of my list consisted of really wonderful games that, until I bought a Playstation 4 last Spring, I did not have…

Ben’s 2017 Top 10 Part 2: Re: Top 5 Dream Drops By Sleep

Well, here we are. The big five. The top cheese. The crème de la crème. I’m proud to present my five favorite sports uniforms of all time. Hell yeah, baby! Let’s get up on this! 5. San Diego Clippers Roa- Wait, they’re telling me this is supposed to be the second part of my video…

Ben’s 2017 Top 10 Part 1 x 365/2 Days ReMix: (10-6)

Before we begin, I would liked to note that some very popular games won’t be on this list. For as many games as I played this year, there were many more that I missed out on and will have to catch up to starting next year. I’m sure there are some very good games that…

Steve’s 2017 Year-In-Review: Games of A Year

As we approach the last few pages of our edifying (verb. [ed-uh-fahy] ) word of the day calendars, it’s tempting to look back and honor the best of the best that 2017 has to offer. The problem is, I’ve only played a few of those games, so my ‘Game of the Year’ lists would basically…

Ben’s 2017 Year in Review: Not My Top 10 Games

As usual, I am planning on doing a Top 10 list for the year. I know it is a played-out format that some people really dislike, but I enjoy the competition behind the thought-process. Some will say that it should be enough that there are 10 games that stood out above all the others in…

Steve’s 2017 Year-in-Review: To Be Continued

If backlogs were a physical thing, I’d have enough to build a scale-replica of Abe Lincolns’ cabin. Currently, there are four very good games released in 2017 of which I’ve made varying degrees of progress in. My hope is that these games will be complete before the flood of February and March releases hit. The…
