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: Yurukill: The Calumniation Games (Nintendo Switch)

I don’t know exactly how to talk about Yurukill: The Calumniation Games. It does so much, and caught me so completely off guard, that any approach to summarizing it seems inaccurate. The only thing I can say with certainty is that I really enjoyed playing it.

Review: Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising (Nintendo Switch)

If Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising proves anything, it’s that there’s something to be said for spunk. This action adventure game from 505 Games may serve as a precursor to the forthcoming JRPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, but it manages to stand pretty well on its own.
