About Kirk Hiner

Raised on Intellivision and Star Frontiers, I've been a gamer since I was old enough to say, "There's nothing on TV." There's still nothing on TV so I'm still playing games, and I likely will be until I'm able to retire to Wuhu Island.

Review: BurgerTime Party! (Nintendo Switch)

Review: Space Intervention (Nintendo 3DS)

Space Intervention once again has us fighting off an alien invasion with one lone pilot to save us. We’ve been fighting this alien menace pretty much since the first arcade games rolled into your local movie theaters and truck stops, so is it still worth fighting on your Nintendo 3DS?

Review: Vambrace: Cold Soul (Nintendo Switch)

Vambrace: Cold Soul is a hard game to review because it had no interest in whether I liked it. It has no interest in whether you’ll like it. It’s one of the meanest, most spiteful games I’ve ever played. Should it concern me, then, that I had fun with it anyway?

Vampyr comes to suck your blood on October 29th

Whether you prefer your vampires to be old, pasty, Europeans or teenagers who glisten in the sun, I think we can all agree they’re cooler when they spell “vampire” with a “y.” And this is why Switch owners can all look forward to the release of Vampyr on October 29th.
