The SpawnFirst Dominion


All Things Truly Wicked, Start from Innocence

If Mr. Hemingway didn’t already give it away, things are a’changing here at SpawnFirst, nay…evolving. SpawnFirst started out as a small game review and news site way back, and was being run all by my lonesome. Slowly but surely, some amazing writers and contributors started joining the fold, and helped turn the site into what it is today.

Out of the many things that separates SpawnFirst from the crowd are our reviews. Each review that we write, not only has a standard .1 decimal place score for categories and the overall score, but also has a “SpawnFirst Recommends…” metascore. To expound on that, our metascores tell you, as a consumer, our final recommendation on whether the game we review warrants a “Buy”, “Buy Cheap”, “Rent”, or should be “Avoided”, no matter what the overall score is. Giving you our final and trustworthy word on how to spend your hard-earned moolah. Oh, and clicking on the actual metascore will send you directly to a retail listing for that game, whether it be Amazon, Gamestop, Steam, Xbox Live, PSN, or even Gamefly (for renting). Check it out some time!

Now, we don’t just report on news and review games, we’ve spread out to writing frequent features, opinions on gaming and the game development world. We’ve been doing developer interviews, game impressions, videos, podcasts, we have an exclusive video game horror channel in collaboration with SlasherJPC – who’s just taken his channel in a brand new and exciting direction. We also collaborate with our affiliate sites like Gamer Horizon, Strategy Guide Reviews, iGame Responsibly, Play Effort, and others. And to cover just about every base, we’re deeply involved in our social feeds on Twitter, Facebook, and have an exclusive community page on Check out all that we have to offer below.

SpawnCastThe SpawnCast

The SpawnCast, with hosts Brian and Chris, has been a runaway hit, with different guests joining every week, and a boatload of viable and interesting topics on hand. Always ready to start off their ‘Casts with the most obscure of beers possible, and willing and able to shamelessly take cracks at each other, Brian and Chris are a joy to listen to on Monday nights, and they definitely start the week off on a high note for our visitors. Check them out on, follow them on their own Twitter feed, and, yes, they’re on iTunes as well!

SlasherJPC’s House of Gaming Horrors (for the Serious Horror Gamer), is our exclusive horror game channel for all the ghoulies and beasties among you.
