Game Warp Podcast: Tales From the Borderlands – Game Review

Its time for the episode to wrap up 2017 for Game Warp Podcast!

We discuss some of the mechanics and how Telltale Games has changed from earlier games to the more recent ones. Tales from the Borderlands is a spinoff from the Borderlands game franchise. The story and characters are two important things that we take a look at as well.

Black Friday Haul!

Happy Saturday!! Apologies for the late post! Its been a busy day of many errands including putting up the Christmas Tree and decorating.

Black Friday recently just passed. But let’s face it, its more of a weekend event that runs into Cyber Monday nowadays.

Its a perfect time to get a Black Friday Haul post for the weekend. Of course, I’m also very much into online shopping so not a whole lot of this is actually in my possession yet. I probably mentioned in previous haul posts but I’ve been doing an overhaul so buying less books and movies, like physical forms of them and also investing more on games as I’d like to have the content for Game Warp for reviews and such. If you see a huge amount of games, that’s the reason.

Let’s go!


  • Resident Evil 7
  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Playstation 4 games have gotten so expensive that we always need to wait for sales before we pick them up. These two games are two of the most anticipated for us and they had a pretty great deal, especially Resident Evil 7 being only $20CAD. In the quest to catch up frantically with the 2017 titles, this fits our goals perfectly.

Google Play

  • The Villainess
  • Layton’s Mystery Journey

I’ve been resorting to the Play Store for a lot of more recent rentals as they have like 99 cent rentals every now and again for selected movies. They actually had one for Black Friday and I ended up renting 47 Meters Down. I love shark movies so while there are million other titles I could have picked, its one I’ve been wanting to catch up with. Black Friday also saw some great deals. For games, Layton’s Mystery Journey had a 60% discount. I love the Professor Layton games. I actually own all of them on Nintendo DS and look forward to catching up with the 3DS titles eventually since they seem to be available on mobile also. The latest game is Layton’s Mystery Journey and for those familiar with Nintendo, games tend to be costly so the deal was pretty sweet. To be honest, Play Store might have had some of the more impressive deals this year so I also got a 50% off coupon for a movie and of course, I went for the rare foreign film and got the highly praised The Villainess which I missed at Fantasia because its an opening movie and my pass didn’t grant me entrance so the tickets were sold out super fast as well.


  • Last Day of June

Fanatical is the new name for what used to called Bundle Stars and its honestly a great spot to check for discounted games. They even give out free game deals every once in a while. Its older titles but sometimes, there are some cool stuff. Plus, I don’t say no to free games. They had a pretty neat way for Black Friday called Black Friday Flash Deals which they released discounted titles one per hour and each game had 24 hours to be at that price. Of course, my eyes was on the 2017 indie titles so Last Day of June popped up and also was cheaper than the discount on Steam so I had to pick it up. This game is right up my alley. Its really hard to say no.

Indigo Books

  • Neil Gaiman Box Set
  • Snowflakes & Morning Frost – Poured Glass Candle

The story behind Indigo purchase is actually a little more out of the fact that I went to the actual store to check out their deals and there was so many people and what I wanted ended up being all available online and what I wanted physically there, the buy 2 graphic novels and get the 3rd free, didn’t have the books I was looking for. Plus, they had a better online discount than the actual price for one of them and I know that during the year, that book should drop in price on a sale even more. Being selective, I went home and thought about it and just couldn’t get my mind off the candle which smelled delectable and the fact that I’ve been wanting to check out Neil Gaiman books but never found them at a good price and at $12.50 for 4 books, that’s a pretty awesome deal.

Steam Fall Sale

Steam Fall Sale

Finally, we come to the Steam Fall Sale which wasn’t exactly called a Black Friday sale but was centered in that time frame so I batched it in here. Not a ton of new games per se. Trust me when I say that the deals started on Thursday night (I think) and I mulled over it for 2 nights before finalizing the choices. Some of these titles will be featured games on Game Warp and others are just games I’ll review on my own because I’ve heard about it or the premise interests me.

La Buche

The final thing I got was really just a household thing but since I do share about it, I’ll add it on here. We burn wood during the winter to help lower actual heating costs and we just love it however, ever since we’ve moved it, we discovered these ecological logs which burn longer and better for the environment. The company we finally bought the most time with is La Buche (and we’re not sponsored although I wish we were..haha). Its a pretty sweet deal if you are in the Montreal area and burn firewood in the winter. Thought I’d share that in case anyone was interested.

That’s it for the Black Friday Haul!!

While I didn’t think that there were any spectacular deals, the stuff I got came at a pretty awesome price so I didn’t actually spend that much money overall.
What about you? Did you find any sweet deals on Black Friday?

Podcast: Game Warp Reviews Firewatch (2016)

Game Warp’s August featured game was Campo Santo Game’s debut title, Firewatch.

Firewatch is a first person mystery adventure set in the forests of Wyoming. We play Henry, a man who has suffered emotionally due to personal issues and has taken up a job as a summer ranger to help look out and prevent fires while maintaining the safety in the forest to hopefully forget about his problems. However, things take a mysterious turn when  certain events start happening. With the help of fellow lookout companion, Delilah via their walkie-talkie, they get through the summer. Maps, hiking and a few story arc is what Firewatch is all about. Its been highly praised last year and has been nominated and received many awards.

Here’s our thoughts and whether it met our expectations!

That’s it for this episode! Hope you enjoyed!
