Hello, I'm a newly minted Grim Dawn fan, and I'd like to take a minute to talk about Grim Dawn - specifically it being A Good Action-Roleplaying-Game™ It's an appropriately mournful take on the genre, set in a pos...

 
 
 
 

Metal Gear Solid V and its lost identity

Big Ti-Oh I'm sorry I was typing while reading and didnt see you there. I usually reserve my writing about video games until the end of the year and get it done in bulk , but I feel this is something worth writing about atleast while all th...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Renew Review: Alan Wake

Stephen King once said "The road to hell is paved with adverbs." Stunningly, this dryly-worded quote spectaculalry fails to make an appearance in Alan Wake, though just about everything else King wrote in novels and short stories does. But ...

RETROSPECTIVE: Metal Gear Solid (PS1/PSN)

It took me a long time to love Metal Gear Solid. Back when I purchased my first Sony PlayStation I couldn’t really appreciate the slower-paced stealthy gameplay and found the whole thing to be much too difficult for my impatient youn...

 
 
 
 

Endless Legend - Shadows Review

Like a harsh Aurigan winter, the last DLC offering for Endless Legend left me feeling cold. Guardians was fine. Just that really. The extra content was nice but the asymmetry and depth found in the base game just wasn't ther...

 
 
 
 

Wario Land 4: My Favorite GBA Game

When most people talk about the best GBA games, they usually talk about stuff like Pokemon or the ports of SNES games it had. Whenever I'm asked that question, I go with Wario Land 4 without any hesitation. Not only did I grow up with this...

From Dusk

David Cage fucking drives me nuts.  Don't get me wrong, I love Quantic Dream and I have mostly enjoyed playing their games, what with their ever evolving take on "cinematic" gameplay. But the problem is Mr. Cage doesn't quite have the ...

 
 
 
 

REVIEW: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (PS4)

Lately I’ve been in the mood to play a so called “walking simulator”, something like Ether One, but I tried that game and found it to be an ugly and empty experience (I might revisit it again but it’s unlikely). Rec...

Devouring Fran Bow, piece by piece

Presenting PC point-and-click horror story Fran Bow in any sort of bite-sized chunk does a disservice to its complexity. With a grace note of Alice in Wonderland and the mysterious half-real flavor of Shutter Island, this indie showcases s...

 
 
 
 

REVIEW: The Order 1886 (PS4)

After a somewhat stagnant 2014, where much of the games I was looking forward to were pushed back, 2015 has been a killer-year for videogames so far, at least for me.  Behemoths like Bloodborne and The Witcher III: Wild Hunt had been ...

Game Review - Xeodrifter Trademark (PC)
