PlayStation 1 REVIEWS: The List

It came, it saw, and it sure as hell bloody conquered. With its entry into the console race, the electronic giant, Sony, was a pro athlete competing against high school kids. Not only did Sony convincingly "win" the 5th generation cons...


Game In Progress: January, February, March 2021

Well, it's been three months, but I still have no new updates on this game. I was slowly chipping away at it, but work and life get in the way. You know it be like that sometimes. Funny thing though, I did sort of start a new project ...


Animal Crossing: New Horizons review

Trying to review Animal Crossing is like reviewing a local diner that's reworked part of its menu: There are some new flavours and features, but you're no stranger to the rest. If you're familiar with Animal Crossing, then you know tha...



The PlayStation 1 had such a massive library of games that it is impossible to do it justice with a simple top 100 games list. As such, I decided to supplement my usual review of a top 100 games list (this time, I used the top 100 PS1 ...


Narita Boy Review: A Bygone Journey

Ghost of Tsushima (PS4) Review

Over the past ten years, few genres have taken grip of the games industry quite like open-world games. A big contributor to this boom is Ubisoft and their popularization of the checkbox open-world formula, which is a style of open-wor...


A Rant on Sony and “The Future” of Gaming

Mole Mania: The Great Lost Nintendo Game

Here's a question: why in Super Smash Bros. Brawl does Captain Olimar get to commit Pikmin genocide in his fight against Solid Snake while Chibi-Robo (seen below) can't free himself from his coin-shaped prison?     Let the d...


Exber's 2021 First Quarter Games

Last year these blog series suddenly died after some personal things I had to go through, and when I remember about it, it was time for some other blogs. This year, however, that is something I don't want to see happening. 2021 is goin...


PS1 REVIEWS: SaGa Frontier 2

Seeing the recent remaster of SaGa Frontier anyone might think that it's obviously both a better game and a more regarded title. That can also seem the case if you consider the vast amount of love for the first game compared to a relat...


How to fix Evangelion 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon A Time

Evangelion 3.0+1.0 was a mixed bag for most people. While it was nowhere near as bad as Eva 3.0, it still suffered from a lack of a clear vision. Most of what was shown, such as Hikari and Toji being married and Misato and Kaji's offsp...
