Rayman 2 Revisited

With Michel Ancel’s recent departure from the gaming industry and retreating to nature as is the most logical step for organic species, we can now turn our heads backwards to his first, and still best IMHO, foray into the world ...


Vigor: Everything a shooter doesn't have

Vigor has been an interesting and addicting game for not only me, Riku, but also Sil. I don’t normally play shooter games. The most you’ll see of them from me is during one of the rewards my viewers can redeem called ShootH...


What defines 'Games as a Service'?

Reading the discourse following the release of the Outriders demo has proven that the game is likely to be quite polarizing at launch. There seem to be an equal number of supporters and detractors on most gaming venues. What I find mos...


Band of Bloggers March 2021 Theme

Shog's Birth-month 2021 Gaming Journal

Recently, I found and started listening to audiobooks of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Unfortunately, the LotR audiobooks were taken off of youtube and maybe I should just subscribe to spotify, but I don’t like commitment...


Final Outriders Demo Impressions

[I've been here a while and never blogged so pardon the bare-bones page and blog formatting.]     Synopsis/TL;DR: Generic, derivative, dated, schizophrenic. Wait for a sale. The analogy I came up with last night was: It's th...


I Miss Dead Space

Raiders of the Ancient Backlog

After going through like 150 hours of JRPGs back to back at the end of last year, I was kinda tired of commitment, but I still wanted the satisfaction of getting games out of my backlog at a steady pace. So instead of my usual MO of al...


You Know What It Is

My first encounter with Zelda was my older cousin's copy of Ocarina of Time. I had cut my teeth on various NES and Genesis games growing up, but this was my first exposure to 3D. I still tear up sometimes when I watch the attract scre...
