Bonkers Cat Stars In This Web-based Game

This article was originally posted on Vulcan Post.

So you have a cat, and for some annoying reason, your cat likes to wake you up at 3 AM in the morning. You’re sleep-deprived, frustrated, and annoyed at your stupid — or garbage — cat for making a mess out of your life. How do you cope with that?

Well, by making a game out of it, of course!

Screen Shot 2015-05-19 at 10.01.16 AM

My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up At 3am Every Day is a gift sent from the feline gods for cat lovers/haters everywhere, and is a dedication from Will Herring to his “garbage cat”. Controlling an innocent-looking cat, you can meow and yowl through the night, knead your owner as he sleeps heavily in his bed, and wreck his room by going left and right and jumping on anything you can get your paws on.

Mad Max: Fury Road- A lovely spectacle of carnage

It’s been 30 years since we last saw the character of Max Rockatansky on the big screen in 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Then Mel Gibson brought the character to life in director George Miller’s vision of post apocalyptic life, where tribes drove crazily designed vehicles across the Outback in search of supplies and gasoline. The 80s Max movies made Gibson an international film star and delivered some of the wildest vehicles stunts committed to celluloid, hitting their pinnacle with the second film in the trilogy The Road Warrior (1981). Gasoline tended to be the driving force in those films, as it was the source of power for both towns and vehicles. It gave us a glimpse of a savage society, one that would do whatever was necessary to survive...

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood- Fun B-movie inspired shooter

2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order proved to be one of that year’s best shooters, as Bethesda and Machine Games gave us a terrific alternate history tale featuring the heroics of soldier B.J. Blazkowicz. Focusing on a single player campaign, The New Order allowed for multiple ways to play through a level, letting players go loud and shoot everything in sight or take a quieter approach and stealthily eliminate your Nazi foes. Solid voice acting bolstered the story, and brought the Wolfenstein franchise to a new generation of consoles while reinvigorating the series. Now in 2015 Bethesda and Machine Games visit Blazkowicz once again, this time in the prequel Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. And once again, we were provided with a fun, though slightly uneven, outing.

Wolfenstein is split into two r...
