Why I Love Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (FINALE)

So the other day, Platinum Games announced that this year would mark its tenth anniversary.  Hard to believe that they’ve been around for that long, but they’ve got the games to prove it -- and some sick-ass art to...   0

While my mighty steed Swiffer and I have been touring the wonders of Cyrodil, apparently my cancer has been touring my body and exploring new sights and locations as well.  My biopsies came back and apparently my cance...   0

Why I Love Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Part 2)

So I have a question: how long are we going to hate Konami? Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not trying to play devil’s advocate here; the stuff Konami has pulled over the past year -- at a bare minimum -- has earned ...   0

Imagine -- if you will -- a volcano.   That volcano erupts.  The combination of ash and lava spewing from its seared crown creates a chain reaction in the atmosphere.  Terawatts of lightning crackle within...   0

Our "authentic self"

Much of the blogosphere speaks of our gender roles as being performative. We perform being male or female. We perform motherhood. We are "at work me" when in the workplace. We dress and act in ways that conform to societal ...   0

Bloodborne: Rise of Blackules

I’m an idiot. That should be blatantly obvious by now, because collectively I’ve blown about a hundred hours on the modern-day Final Fantasy games, and cleared one of its latest entries before I even touched Bl...   0

So after accidentally hiding my latest post for the past 20-ish hours, I've decided that I need to start using this quickpost feature. It'll probably save me some frustration in the long run. Sooooo, hey everybody! I'm writing something short for once!

In Search of Majestic Games

I’ve been thinking about Until Dawn recently, even though it’s been a few months since I finished it.  Part of the blame is on the recently announced VR installment, Rush of Blood.  I don’t know what to make...   0

So Who is Cloud Strife, Really?

Full disclosure: I didn’t see the recent Nintendo Direct live, so I heard about the biggest headline indirectly thanks to my brother and his phone. He had me guess who the new Smash Bros. character was, and my first (and o...   0

Dreams Don’t Die (AKA Voltech the Sellout)

Who Do You Want to Play As?

So a few months after everyone else plowed through it, I (finally) started playing The Witcher 3 -- and believe it or not, I actually like it. I like the exploration, I like the combat, I suspect I have the potential to deve...   0

DmC: Devil May Cry (feat. Kamen Rider Kiva)

Even though I haven’t played the previous game, there was something about Rise of the Tomb Raider that caught my interest. The announcement trailer showed off a Lara Croft in therapy -- which makes sense, given what she we...   0

Splatoon is secretly brilliant.

I wonder how much of Splatoon’s success comes from the proliferation of memes.  I mean, it’s been a top image gallery over on Know Your Meme for months now, and the phrase “you’re a kid now, you&...   0

In the first fifteen seconds of the game, you’re treated to a slow-motion shot of Bayonetta that -- of course -- pans straight down to her crotch.  Barely a minute later, you’re commandeering and piloti...   0
