Review: Risk of Rain 2

When I first jumped into the Early Access phase of Risk of Rain 2, I enjoyed my time but naturally wanted more. I haven't revisited it since, and have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of content the game has in its 1.0 release. A rog...

Review: Necrobarista

I can't say I'm big into the visual novel scene. I love me a good story, but it's rare that I actually play visual novels. I do thoroughly enjoy what have been deemed "walking simulators," though, so please don't think of me as someone who ...

 
 
 
 
 

Where are my Path of Exile friends at? New league drops on Friday and I've been theory-crafting hot garbage all day!

Review: Signs of the Sojourner

Sometimes a video game comes along and is touted as the "[genre game] for people who hate [genre]." I think Signs of the Sojourner wants to be that game for deckbuilders. As someone who has been lukewarm on the genre as a whole, the id...

(Updated link) I never posted this, but here is the Ludum Dare entry my friend and I made a few weekends ago! It's called Ducky's Day Out and it's kind of like Lemmings: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/46/duckys-day-out


 
 
 

My friends and I are discussing our thoughts on Disco Elysium, if you wanna come listen here's the link! SPOILERS WILL BE TALKED ABOUT!! https://www.twitch.tv/senatorsweeps

 
 
 

Anyone else participating in Ludum Dare this weekend?? A buddy and I are going in for our second time!


 
 
 

After finishing both Outer Wilds and Half-Life: Alyx in the same week, I feel like I need a smoke. Both games are masterpieces in their own right, and I think Valve, at the top of their game, is unmatched. I can't see anything topping Alyx as my GOTY.

 
 
 
 

I get to teach from home for at least two weeks! So naturally, I'm going to use Twitch. What games should I stream to my students? Obviously anything M rated is out...

 
 
 

Has anyone made the joke yet that the emo boi Pokemon evolves into a Pokemon with a gun? No? Okay...

 
 
 

I feel obligated to tell people here that I now own Rainbow Six: Siege...

 
 
 

Another gift from my student! I saw her drawing Klonoa so I told her about some lesser-known mascots. Later that day I found an amazing Cool Spot on my desk!!!


 
 
 
 

Just got my stats midterm score -- 99%! I couldn't have done it without my (allowed) cheat sheet. Not the info on it, but the picture. I asked a student of mine to draw me an inspirational image in the corner and told her to "get creative." SO AMAZING!!!

Review: Greedfall

I've never played a Spiders game before. People always say they're "rough around the edges" or use the term "Euro-jank" to describe them. These games tend to fulfill that B-level game that seems to be so elusive these days (outside of Japan...

Review: Blair Witch

I have a special place in my heart for the Blair Witch films. Well, the first two at least. I completely forgot there was a third from 2016 and I've never seen it. But after completing the Blair Witch game, I've done a lot of thinking ...
