About Samuel Guglielmo

I'm Sam. I have been playing video games since my parents brought home a PlayStation whenever that came out. Started writing for TechRaptor for 2016 and, somehow, they've yet to fire me. Instead, they promoted me to Reviews Editor, and now I edit all the reviews that show up on the site. It's a really neat job that I enjoy. Outside of TechRaptor, I also work for DreadXP, an indie horror games media site and publisher where I help edit scripts, do QA testing, and find new projects to publish. When I'm not at work I spend a lot of time reading and watching an unhealthy amount of really bad found footage horror movies. Bad Ben is my horror franchise of choice, and I refuse to ever change that point of view. The namesake of the Situational Awareness Mechanic in Bad Ben: The Game. That's not a joke.

Tails: The Backbone Preludes Review

While Tails: The Backbone Preludes feels like a step back in gameplay, it makes up for it with compelling characters, interesting stories, and lovely presentation.

The Callisto Protocol Review

The Callisto Protocol has occasional bouts of fun melee combat and fantastic graphics, but too much of the game is simply not fun to play to be worth it.

Bound by Blades Review

Bound by Blades tries to combine wholesome aesthetics with a fast-paced boss rush, but bad bosses and wonky mechanics prevent this from really going anywhere interesting.

Gungrave G.O.R.E Review

Gungrave G.O.R.E promises to shake you to your Gungrave core, but mostly ends up as a Gungrave chore. Before long I was Gungrave bored of the Gungrave lore and my trigger finger was Gungrave sore. Here's hoping they can fix things up if we see a Gungrave four.

In Sound Mind Review

In Sound Mind combines psychological horror and a soundtrack by The Living Tombstone. Is that enough to be worth going crazy over?

Weaving Tides is a wholesome adventure with a fun story and clever puzzles that's occasionally let down by repetitive combat.

It's always exciting when we get to see a new publisher take its first steps into gaming. Such is the case with Binary Haze Interactive, who was formed earlier this year. Now their first game, Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights, has been announced, and it's looking good.

Roguebook Header

Roguebook is the Latest Deckbuilding Roguelike and it Has Richard Garfield Backing it Up

During the Nacon Connect, we learned about an upcoming roguelike deckbuilder called Roguebook. The game, which is going to take place in the same universe as card strategy game Faeria, will have you take control of two heroes, made up of popular characters from Faeria, and explore a world that is randomly generated by the mysterious titular Roguebook. Since it's a roguelike, if you lose both of your heroes then you have to start over from the beginning of the game. The promise is that the game is procedurally generated every time you play, so you can't just memorize details to get better at it.
