Review: No Man's Sky (NEXT - PC)

No Man's Sky. Chances are just reading that brings up some sort of emotion within you. For what it's worth, I completely agreed with Chris' original review of the game. It was a good game that became all too transparent with its systems. I ...

With Yakuza 0 (PC), Monster Hunter: World, updates to No Man's Sky, Overwatch, and Sea of Thieves, I am just so happy to be a gamer (on summer vacation)!

Review: Mothergunship

You know how in "The Cartridge Family" (season 9, episode 5 of The Simpsons), Moe shows off how "with a few minor adjustments" he turns five guns into one gun?  That's Mothergunship.

How do I get better at Fortnite?

This is an honest and genuine question. I have only now started to play Fortnite with the advent of Season 5. I haven't even played many battle royale games at all, really. I've played some Fortnite in squads back when it was new ...

Am I the only one who thinks the Runner games have gotten exponentially worse with each iteration? Playing the third one now and there's almost nothing to enjoy about it anymore...

Review: The Council - Episode 2: Hide and Seek

Back in high school, my buddies and I used to always play a "hide and seek" map in Counter-Strike 1.6. It's a darker map set on just a single street of a neighborhood. Looking back, I'm not sure how we got so many enjoyable hours out o...

Review: Moonlighter

I once read an article that some teachers are feeling forced to moonlight and take second jobs to supplement their low teaching salaries. As a teacher, it made me a bit sad to read, especially since I know other professions are in the same ...

Review: Laser League

Honestly, if the description of multiplayer competitive Jezzball doesn't already have you intrigued, I'm not sure anything I write here will help.

Review: Frostpunk

Here are some thoughts that popped into my head while playing Frostpunk: These damn cripples are useless! Why is the work day so short? I need to do something about this. If you don't like working a 24-hour shift, maybe you'd like to head ...

Review: The Council - Episode 1: The Mad Ones

As soon as I began playing The Council, I was immediately reminded of Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None on the Wii. I doubt others will have this moment in their head, but bear with me. The atmosphere felt incredibly similar as...

Final Fantasy XV's PC port is straight up impressive

Final Fantasy XV's PC version was delayed to make it the best PC version it could be. If you've been playing games on PC for long enough, you've heard this song and dance before. Square Enix has had a good track record recently with their P...

Review: Into the Breach

How do you follow up a game like FTL? The game became such a huge hit in 2012 and showed what a successful Kickstarter could look like. Many people fondly look back at the countless hours lost in space, watching crew members and s...

Review: Brass Tactics

I wouldn't expect for an RTS game to make its way into VR and work as well as it does in Brass Tactics. I also didn't expect the RTS genre to work so well with a controller, but then Tooth and Tail came in and blew me away. I guess the...

 
 
 

Now that the Switch is one year old, here's a photomerged image of my girlfriend's Zelda BOTW journey that I made (and framed) for her birthday last week! It was a complete pain to make, but it came out awesome!!!
