Review: Path of Exile: Ultimatum

Somehow, Path of Exile is simultaneously in its best and worst state. Every league, it just gets more bloated as Grinding Gear Games (GGG) adds previous league mechanics into the "core" game. As someone who has played in a pretty serio...


you may not like it, but this is what peak teaching perfection looks like


*looks around* is.....is the Council stuff over??? Can I come out now?


About to complete the final chapter of Final Fantasy VII: Remake for the first time. I have NO idea what to expect and I'm scared!!! Spoilery reaction in the comments after I beat it...

Content Warning: This game, and thus the review, contains depictions and descriptions of depression, anxiety, and suicide. Having been Kickstarted in 2014, Omori seems to have gone under many people's radar, myself included. While at a...

Y'all think I'm so handsome, so come watch me and my friends discuss/review Control! Spoilers, obviously. https://www.twitch.tv/senatorsweeps


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!


Friends and I will be discussing STRAFE *and* Blasphemous today for our "Gameclub" session! Tune in here to hear us ramble :) https://www.twitch.tv/senatorsweeps
