Archived Updates

May 19th, 2021
Last week, things were a little late as it took more work than usual to complete that week's review. This week, the reverse is true, as I've finished two short reviews and released them both. The two casual games being reviewed this week are Chuzzle Deluxe and Coloring Pixels, a Match 3 and a color by number game, respectively.
May 13th, 2021
Normally, I am to post reviews on Wednesdays. However, this week's review of Fallout: New Vegas ended up taking slightly longer than usual to complete. It's possibly one of the longest reviews I've ever posted, which likely explains why it took so long.
May 5th, 2021
Sometimes a series gets lucky and survives by switching to different systems. That's the takeaway from Shantae: Risky's Revenge, which is today's reviewed game.
April 28th, 2021
Today's review is of an older game that's still fairly popular (or at least, popular compared to most of the stuff I've reviewed). Killing Floor is a violent (but very fun) game about fighting mutant freaks in European settings.
April 21st, 2021
This week's review is of Kero Blaster, a "ribbiting" story of an amphibian janitor and their grime fighting adventures.
April 14th, 2021
In May 2020, I announced that the Resources for Parents section was going to get a massive overhaul. This turned into a much bigger project than I'd expected, and I'm pleased to announce that the new revision has FINALLY gone live! In addition, there are plans for more articles to be added in the future.

Today's update also brings my review of Cradle of Persia, the final tile-matching game in the Cradle Bundle.
April 7th, 2021
Howdy howdy howdy! It's the first Wednesday of April 2021, and I'm back and ready to resume posting on here again. I had hoped to have some upgrades and revamps for this site ready by today, but I'm just a few bits shy of reaching that mark. So it'll be maybe a week before they can go live. In the meantime, today does bring the release of my review of 20XX, a Mega Man / Roguelike hybrid.
February 24th, 2021
This morning's new review is for a Steam port of the classic game, PAC-MAN. On a less impressive note, I've decided to take a short hiatus from the weekly reviews. 2021 has been very difficult for me, and the self-imposed deadlines of weekly game reviews isn't helping. We'll return to regularly scheduled updates in April. See y'all then!
February 17th, 2021
This morning's update brings my review of Blasphemous, an action platformer that's as bloody and twisted as it is gothic. It's definitely not for everyone, as it shows what a Christianity without Salvation might look like.
February 10th, 2021
It's Wednesday, so it's time for another review to go live! This time I took a look at an old classic from the early days of home computing: Chip's Challenge. Extra fun fact: the Steam edition of this title is now freeware, so everyone can enjoy it!
February 3rd, 2021
This update comes in several flavors: first, I've taken the time to add several terms to the glossary. There's a lot more to do, so I'll try and keep up with that in the following weeks. Secondly, I've added an FTC Disclosure. This wasn't required, but I've had a few people tell me it might be a good idea, and I can see their logic. Lastly, I've added a review for what is possibly the most ridiculous game I've come across yet. Super 3-D Noah's Ark is a first person shooter with a Christian theme, and it's actually pretty fun.
January 27th, 2021
This Wednesday morning I've released my review of Fez, a somewhat mind-bending puzzle game where your perspective of the world literally changes things.
January 20th, 2021
This Wednesday, I decided to take a look at a rerelease of a few games from yesteryear. Mega Man X Legacy Collection, Volume 1 brings the first four Mega Man X games to your PC, allowing you to relive X and Zero's Maverick hunting adventures.
January 13th, 2021
Seeing as it's the 13th, aka the unluckiest day of the month, let's have a look at an indie horror game entitled Bendy and the Ink Machine.
January 6th, 2021
I've spent a large part of December trying to get things in order, and this included building up a little backlog of reviews. I'll be releasing them weekly, starting today, so that things can stay on schedule for as long as possible. Today I'm releasing the first of these reviews, which is for the surprisingly still popular classic, Wolfenstein 3D.
November 27th, 2020
2020 has continued to make life difficult for everyone, and for me, this has resulted in me spending most of November putting out fires and just trying to make it through another day. Unsurprisingly, this has not only prevented me from playing games, it's made it nearly impossible to write about them with any consistency. At this point, I'm settling for uploading what I have, which is a review for a neat little fighting game called ROBO OH, a time management game called Cooking Fever, and a handful of new glossary entries.
October 21st, 2020
It's been too long without an update, so today I've released not one, not two, but three new reviews to bring everything back up to speed! This week's reviews are for Captain Bible in the Dome of Darkness (an really good DOS Bible trivia / adventure game), Simon Tatham's Portable Puzzle Collection (a set of 39 logic puzzles for everyone to enjoy), and Super Star Path (a retro-styled puzzle-based alien shooter). And now, back to your weekly updates...
September 30th, 2020
This week's review takes a look at Robo Miner, an older mobile game that was ported to the PC.
September 23rd, 2020
This week's new review is for Gunman Clive, a unique platform shooter themed around the Wild West.
September 16th, 2020
Today's update features the release of my review for LOVE 2: Kuso, a real love letter to the simple computer games from long ago.
September 9th, 2020
This update is a bit later than planned, but that's not for lack of trying: I simply wasn't happy with what I'd written and wanted to take some more time to clean it up. Today's review is for a fun but extremely hard platformer known as N++.
August 26th, 2020
This week I've reviewed Stacking, though I can't say that I was impressed by it. There's a good idea there, but it just didn't hit the mark in my opinion. Feel free to disagree with me there.
August 19th, 2020
Today's update is a long-overdue follow up to a previous entry. It's the review for Serious Sam: The Second Encounter. Despite being a separate game, it's considered to be the second part of Sam "Serious" Stone's original adventure, not the second game in the series.
August 12th, 2020
And we're back from a hiatus that lasted just over a month. Today's update brings with it the review for the Treasures of Montezuma 4, a Match 3 game about two lovers lost in time.
July 8th, 2020
Another review has been added! This time, I've taken a look at the popular underwater adventure game Subnautica.
July 1st, 2020
Today's new review is for an old DOS game that's still somewhat popular. Mystic Towers is an isometric adventure game about exploring towers, slaying monsters, and finding treasure. It also has one of the best title themes of any DOS game I know about.
June 24th, 2020
Today's update brings the review for The Forest, a survival horror adventure that, while fun, also holds the record for the bloodiest game I've yet looked at.
June 17th, 2020
My review of Antichamber, a mindbending 3D puzzle game, has been published. Also, there have been a few cosmetic upgrades to the site's scripts; for example, the game review lists are now properly sorted in alphabetical order, even when the title starts with the word "The".
June 10th, 2020
Another Wednesday, another review is released! Today's review is for Katamari Damacy REROLL, a faithful remaster of a very popular (and very surreal) PlayStation 2 game.
June 3rd, 2020
Continuing the streak of an update every Wednesday, the review for the Red Strings Club has been published!
May 27th, 2020
A new review has been released, keeping the weekly update plan going for the third week straight. Today's review is for the Disney Afternoon Collection, a set of six classic NES games you can now legally play on your home PC.
May 20th, 2020
A twofer this week, as two game reviews have been released! These reviews are for a life simulation game called Chinese Parents and an old DOS game known as Hocus Pocus.
May 13th, 2020
This week's update brings with it a new review for Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope! I'd also like to alert readers to another change in progress: I'm going to revamp the Resources for Parents section in the near future, so pages in that section will probably be moved around or even discarded. If you have anything from that section bookmarked, be aware that those bookmarks might stop working when the revamped version goes live.
May 6th, 2020
A new review has been released today: Beat Hazard 2! This is also the start of a new plan for uploading; I'm going to aim for a weekly update schedule, with a new review or other content released every week.
April 11th, 2020
Although today's update doesn't include any reviews, it does include something I've been meaning to implement for some time: the revamped Glossary section! Everything is now neatly grouped into various categories for easier browsing!
March 30th, 2020
Some relatively minor updates today; I found and corrected a handful of bugs with various pages, and updated some others. The next update's going to be a bit of a doozy however, and will probably be ready in a week or two.
February 22nd, 2020
Another day, another update! Two new reviews have been added (Blocks that Matter, Glass Masquerade 2) and a new feature has been implemented. This is something a few visitors have requested for a while, I'm proud to announce that you can now sort the charts listing the reviews by any column! Just click the column's header and the chart will be updated.
February 7th, 2020
Two new reviews were added today: Hollow Knight and Race the Sun. Fans of Metroidvanias will definitely enjoy the former!
January 15th, 2020
Today's update brings a new review (Among the Sleep), a few general fixes, and a new feature for the Dark Mode: some images will switch themselves to conform to the theme you've chosen!
January 1st, 2020
This first update of the new year brings us reviews of DOOM (2016) and Super Meat Boy, as well as a handful of new glossary entries.
December 17th, 2019
Small update tonight: 10 new definitions were added to the glossary.
December 11th, 2019
After months of silence, this old site is ready for action once again! This update brings with it no new reviews or glossary entries, but instead, the entire website has been overhauled. This new layout works better on both desktops and mobile devices, while it also gives you the option of a Dark Mode theme. Behind the scenes, it lays the groundwork for the future of this site. Happy 2020, everyone!
May 23rd, 2019
Two more reviews have been redone to bring them up to the newer standard, and a long overdue review has been added.
May 8th, 2019
Lately, updates have been consisting of little more than rewrites of older content. Today's update continues this trend, but also includes a new review.
March 17th, 2019
This time around, no reviews have been added. Instead, this update involves the release of a new article that will hopefully put some fears to rest.
February 18th, 2019
Two long-awaited reviews have been added, along with a token amount of slang terms defined.
January 26th, 2019
It's been ages since the last update, but it's finally arrived with two new reviews. Here's hoping 2019 sees things get back on schedule. :)
October 28th, 2018
Things are moving along rather quickly, and as a result, two more reviews have been released!
October 23rd, 2018
Several more slang entries have been cleaned up, and one new review has been added.
October 12th, 2018
I've made some changes to try and help me be more productive, and the fruits of this effort are already beginning to be seen. Two more reviews have been added, and some of the existing slang entries (such as the entry for Creepypasta) have been rewritten to help introduce their topic.
September 28th, 2018
As September comes to a close, two new reviews and a small number of slang definitions have been added to the site's roster!
August 31st, 2018
Where does the time go? Although this month has flown by, one last update managed to sneak in under the wire. Three new reviews have been added, and one older review has been touched up to bring it up to current standards.
August 3rd, 2018
It's been a while since there was an update; this is mostly due to July being a rather busy month that didn't leave much time for writing. But, now it's time to catch up, as three new reviews have been added and a bunch of slang terms defined!
June 15th, 2018
Just a small update: one review has been added. Basically, I decided to publish what I had now, rather than wait for another page to be done. I've recently been sick, and thus I didn't get much done. Hopefully I can get a few more reviews out by the end of the month.
May 23rd, 2018
Two updates in one month? Wowza. I don't know how long I can keep this sort of thing going, but I'm going to try anyway. Today's update brings two new reviews to the site!
May 15th, 2018
After an unexpectedly long break, I'm back with three new reviews and several more in progress!
March 19th, 2018
Today gives us the first update since the new system was installed! Two new game reviews are up, and several new entries have been added to the glossary.
February 26th, 2018
This update has been planned for some time, and now that it's finally here, God Minded Gaming will be a much better site as a result. This time the update focuses on what's under the hood, so there isn't much in the way of new content to view. Instead, the rating system has been revised to clear out some confusion, old links have been updated or removed, and much of the code that runs the site has been heavily altered.

Going forward, updates should be more commonplace, and new content should also have a higher quality. There is still much to be done, but now that this transition is complete, the hardest part is over.
January 12th, 2018
The first update of 2018 may contain only one review, but it's a review for a trilogy. Several jargon terms have also been added to the list of definitions.
December 30th, 2017
The last update for 2017 brings with it three new reviews, and a much needed revamp of the Useful Links page.
December 12th, 2017
Today's update brings us three new game reviews and a small sprinkling of new slang definitions to go with them.
November 28th, 2017
Today's update bring with it two new reviews, over a dozen new slang definitions, and a new article discussing the ESRB and their contributions to the gaming community.
November 10th, 2017
I had initially planned for this update to come out last month, but my ever-present attention deficit ohh shiney disorder kicked in and screwed with the schedule. But here we are. This update brings with it a fancy new layout, two new reviews, and two revamped reviews. There's more in the pipeline too!
October 11th, 2017
A small update this time around, though there will likely be a few more during the month of October. This update adds a few new slang definitions and two new reviews!
September 27th, 2017
Thanks to some unavoidable issues in real life, things ended up being delayed by several weeks. However, things are picking up steam again, and this update brings with it four new reviews!
July 3rd, 2017
Better late than never: I had planned on there being an update a few days ago, but things got in the way. So, while this is a few days late, today's update brings with it a new article, one new review, and a number of old reviews that have been cleaned up.
June 14th, 2017
While it's not the update I'd hoped to have, I've managed to make some serious progress on various parts of the website. For example, 23 new slang definitions have been added, a few bugs have been fixed, and a few other things have been cleaned up. Hopefully I'll have more progress to share by the end of the month.
April 14th, 2017
The next site update is here! While it's a little on the small side, one of the three new reviews have been some of the most difficult ones I've done to date. The plan for the next update involves work on the slang glossary and some fleshing out of other sections as well as some new reviews.
March 27th, 2017
Today's update brings with it a number of tweaks to the slang listing, several updated reviews, and new reviews for Alice: Madness Returns, Pony Island, and Nyxquest: Kindred Spirits!
March 1st, 2017
Some more major changes arrive with this update! I've been debating on how to include some new material for some time, and now that I've finally worked out how to do it, I've made some changes to the site's layout to prepare for the big stuff to come. Even better, the new layout doesn't change any of the URLs, so nothing will go missing.

Additionally, this update brings a new review and several rewritten reviews to the site. More will come in the near future!
February 13th, 2017
Just a small update: the reviews for MS Solitaire Collection and MS Jigsaw have been edited, and a number of small bugs have been fixed. For example, the Borderlands review should actually be readable now.
January 16th, 2017
The reviews for Borderlands, Peggle and the Mega Man Legacy Collection have been updated to be clearer and include a little more detail!
January 11th, 2017
A few months ago, I discovered that I haven't exactly been very objective when reviewing certain games. This has led to some odd ratings, among other problems. So, I've been working hard to edit the reviews as needed and correct other problems I can see with the way I've rated things. Today I've uploaded the first wave of changes, which includes some 30+ updated reviews, the new rating system, and other fixes.
October 11th, 2016
Four new reviews have been added! The big news though is that the slang glossary is getting a massive overhaul, and it's about three fourths done. Expect more reviews and the revised slang glossary to arrive before the end of the month!
September 16th, 2016
The first major update has arrived! I've heavily reworked the scripts that run the site as well as tweaked a few things about the rating system.

The biggest change is that I've made it clearer which games are recommended. Originally, recommended games received a GREAT rating while other quality games received a GOOD rating. Now, both are given the GOOD rating while the recommended games are also given a "seal of approval".
August 27th, 2016
Three new reviews have been added, and plans have been made to make September a month of useful updates!
August 7th, 2016
A total of five new reviews have been added!
July 9th, 2016
Things may not have gone as smoothly as I would have liked last month, but this time things are off to a good start as five new reviews have been added and a number of little things have been tweaked for the better.
June 6th, 2016
Just a small update: one review has been added. There are bigger things on the horizon.
May 21st, 2016
It took longer than expected, but the next three reviews have been added and two existing reviews updated!
May 6th, 2016
This update brings with it three new game reviews, with the promise of more to come in the near future.
April 23rd, 2016
It seems like it's been a long time coming, but four new reviews have been added and a few new games have been listed on the Future Review page.
April 11th, 2016
This week's update isn't so much new content as it is making some needed updates to the site's code. Long story short, it was brought to my attention that the way I coded the site wasn't well suited for screen readers and other types of assistive technologies. After looking things up, I've recoded almost everything to address this. Hopefully it helps!
April 1st, 2016
Pardon the long delay there; I ended up having to work on something that was unrelated to GMG and didn't have much time for anything else. I'm ready to resume updating regularly again now though.

3 new reviews have been added, and two existing reviews were updated to reflect some features that have been added since I reviewed them.
March 10th, 2016
While this update isn't terribly big, it's been surprisingly difficult to do. I've reworked a few pages as planned, with the biggest rewrites being the page about the Avoid tag and the page talking about whether or not Christians should be playing video games at all. In the case of the latter, it's been completely redone, and it's far from the thesis paper it originally was.
February 23rd, 2016
This update doesn't add any reviews or slang terms. Instead, it's a revision of some existing pages and an addition of a new page that provides useful links to other resources online. More revisions are going to be coming in the near future.
February 12th, 2016
Four new reviews have been added, and several pages were given a facelift. This is the start of a big upgrade to the site's design, which should prove helpful and be easier to work with.
January 18th, 2016
3 new reviews have been added. I'm moving a bit slow at the moment, as I'm working on improving a few pages and playing through some longer games. There are a few more reviews being drafted already, so it's not going to be that much longer before more content is posted.
December 22nd, 2015
4 new reviews have been added, and I corrected a mistake where some slang entries had been added but not marked as published. They should be viewable by everyone now!
December 11th, 2015
This update adds four new game reviews, three of which are good for a little frightful fun! New slang definitions and a new resource page have also been added, with more to come later on.

But particularly nifty is the brand-new God Minded Gaming Tumblr! Go follow it for gaming humor, posts about what I'm working on next and occasionally some wise words about ourselves and our Lord! You can also use Tumblr's ask, submit and messaging systems to contact me if you have questions or are just have something to say.
November 28, 2015
Well, things got a bit busy and the "big surprise" didn't come about this round. But, it's still a work in progress, so hopefully it'll appear before the next big update!

This update adds five new reviews, including a review of the hot new indie game, Undertale!

Additionally, a handful of slang definitions have been added to the glossary.
November 9th, 2015
This update adds three new reviews, defines several slang terms and adds a new feature: you can now track the site's updates using your favorite RSS reader!

Just point it at to follow along and be automatically notified of new updates!

Additionally, there is something else big coming down the pipeline, so keep your eyes open for something special!
October 22nd, 2015
It's been an unexpectedly rocky month; I had hoped to bundle more into the next update, but it just didn't turn out that way. This next update adds one review, revamped about section, a little more detail with existing reviews and a handful of newly defined slang terms.
September 29th, 2015
Just cutting it under the wire, but I've finished five more reviews and uploaded a handful of slang definitions. Specifically, I discovered some pages that were missing and filled them in. I'm not sure why they disappeared, but it's taken care of now.
September 21st, 2015
Preparing the next update ended up taking longer than originally expected. Part of this was because I've redone some of the site's code in antisipation of some future reviews, and to make some things a bit more friendly (for example, the note section now appears on the review pages as well as the listings). Included in this update are three new reviews and some slightly touched up images. If all goes well, there will be another update before the end of September.
September 1st, 2015
Now that the site has just over 30 reviews, I noticed that some things were either redundant or not very helpful. So, I've taken some time to revamp the rating system in an effort to simplify things. This also meant rewriting or otherwise editing the reviews to fit with the new system, but it's all finally done. A few other pages were also given facelifts. But overall, things should return to normal now!
July 9th, 2015
Six more reviews have been added, and some random little bugs were corrected. It's probable that nobody else even noticed these bugs even existed, but I don't like leaving anything unfixed.
July 2nd, 2015
Largely just a touch up update; correcting a few things, filling out some tables and adding a few new definitions.
June 19th, 2015
Over a dozen slang terms have been given definitions, and a few pages were rewritten to be a little clearer or a little less pompus.
June 8th, 2015
Seven reviews have been added, as well as a few slang definitions.
May 23rd, 2015
Another batch of slang definitions has been uploaded.
May 15th, 2015
Three new reviews and a handful of slang definitions have been added!
May 9th, 2015
Tweaks are nearly done, and most of the new scripts are now online.
May 6th, 2015
Four new reviews have been added; it was going to be a larger update, but I noticed more time had passed than I really wanted to go between updates.
April 24th, 2015
Three new reviews are up. I'm also focusing on making some tweaks elsewhere on the site, so it's slowing me down a little.
April 18th, 2015
Added a page on future reviews.
April 17th, 2015
The rating system has been revamped in response to some useful feedback, so it should be clearer for everyone now.
April 14th, 2015
Five new reviews have been added, along with a handful of new slang definitions. Some of the scripts were also redone, so things should be easier to manage in the future. Specifically, the slang glossary was completely overhauled into a nice three column layout rather than the massive and intimidating list. I've also spotted a way to decrease some file sizes, which will make everything load faster.
April 7th, 2015
Site launches with three reviews, a bunch of slang terms defined, nine articles and many plans for the future!
