Games as Heart Vol IV: Undertale

Don't kill, and don't be killed, alright? As the generation draws to a close, I want to give a send-off to my favorite games from these past few years. Not exactly a review, but it could still work like one if you have never played the...

 
 
 
 

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 27: Elegy

Songs much like masks were a very fun, but seldom used mechanic with only a select few that really mattered or had use beyond a couple of encounters or very specific situations. It’s a shame because some of them are really cool. ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Where does the Epic Games Store go from here?

Epic's Game Store certainly got off to quite the rocky start back in 2019. I certainly haven't forgotten the time they snatched up numerous Steam games just to make them arbitrary exclusives, nor have I forgotten the rage that ensued o...

Game In Progress: September 2020

Short one again. But, hey - progress is progress, no matter how small. Last time, I was researching if it was possible to load a shape and control it from one script rather than create a script for each individual object. I was leanin...

 
 
 
 

Me as an author? It's more likely than you think!

This is the most important blog I've ever written. All the other ones I've done here are but puddles of piss next to this mighty ocean of... lemonade or whatever. While everything else was fun to write and helped me engage with this de...

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 22: Temples

A look back at Far Cry 1

2004's Far Cry certainly stands out nowadays as one of the more unique entries in the series. It was the first game Crytek had ever worked on, and it certainly was quite a leap in tech compared to its competition. Yet despite how much ...

 
 
 
 

Hades Review: Making Repetition Fun

The hook of rogue style games is their replayability, constantly shifting dungeon designs, upgrade choices, and the quest to get just a little farther in each subsequent run.  Hades takes elements from these games, and blends the...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

31 Days 2020 Edition Day 19: Guardian

Surprises are a difficult thing to pull off properly in games. Poor execution can make it predictable which ruins the surprise or the event itself is unfitting and not fun. Thankfully From Software has a lot of experience in this kind ...
