Light Fairytale Episode 1: It's a JRPG

One of my favorite things to do these days is browse new release lists, keeping an eye out for hidden gems among the deluge of titles flooding the market every day. A couple months ago a small JRPG caught my eye. Made by a one man ind...

 
 
 
 
 

Just Let Me Pause the Damn Game

The pause button has pretty much been a ubiquitous feature in gaming since the medium evolved past it's arcade roots. Early gaming didn't have a pause menu because the games themselves were built for the arcade, a place where time is ...

 
 
 

Game Pass Musings: Dead Rising 4

I used to be a something of a fan of Dead rising back in the day. While I never quite got into the first game, the second was something special. Starting from the amazing Case Zero, I was hooked. Even the spin off game Off the Record was m...

 
 
 

Revisiting Mass Effect: Andromeda Part 2

After playing through and writing about the opening hours of Mass Effect: Andromeda a few days ago, I was tentatively excited to continue. I hadn't necessarily loved what I'd played up to that point, but I felt there was room for impr...

 
 
 

Revisiting Mass Effect: Andromeda

When Mass Effect: Andromeda first released back in 2017, it was fucked. There are no two ways around it. It was a buggy, ugly mess of a game. Backwards shooting guns, awful faces, terrible animations, broken cutscenes, crashes, etc. Y...

 
 
 

Kingdom Hearts 3: Duality and Dichotomy

Kingdom Hearts 3 is an impressively bizarre product. On one hand, it's basically a bad Shonen anime. On the other hand, it's a virtual Disney simulator. 2 sides of the same coin, both vastly different yet still in a sort of harmony. S...

 
 
 

Why am I still playing Fallout 76?

Got to level 55 and launched 3 nukes in Fallout 76. I pushed through despite the frustration and boredom because it's Fallout. That was a mistake. There is quite literally no endgame. After level 50 leveling up is meaningless as you ge...

 
 
 

Thoughts On: The Evil Within + DLC

I had it in my head this Halloween that I would replay my favorite Resident Evil games to sort of celebrate the season, but instead I opted to try something new. I told myself it would be good to branch out a bit instead of playing the...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Trials of the Blood Dragon

When Ubisoft announced and then released Trials of the Blood Dragon during E3 a couple years back, I'll admit that I was intrigued at the prospect. I'd never really played a Trials game before, but I loved the time I spent with Far Cry...

 
 
 

Review: Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite

I'm something of a latecomer to the world of Marvel vs. Capcom. I played MvC 2 a little bit when I was a kid but never with intention I just wanted to see the pretty colors pop on the screen. It wasn't until MvC 3 released that I reall...

 
 
 

Review: Destiny 2

Because the internet needs another opinion on Destiny 2!! Destiny had a rocky start when it launched in the fall of 2014. It was a bare bones product that hung it's hat on it's solid gameplay base. It didn't take long for many players ...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Mirror's Edge

I remember watching trailers way back in 2008 and being blown away by the look of Mirror's Edge. Parkour, melee combat, shooting, and chase sequences all in one first person package. Not only did the gameplay show promise, but the look...

 
 
 

Review: Sonic Mania

I've been hurt before. I think everyone knows the feeling, the weight of disappointment crushing all your hopes and dreams. Like Captain Ahab pursued his white whale, I too pursued something I could never hope to have. A great Sonic ga...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Wolfenstein: The New Order

Wolfenstein got it's start as a stealth series on early computers before transitioning into it's most recognizable form in Wolfenstein 3D. After popularizing the first person shooter genre, the series releases became sporadic. Flash fo...

 
 
 

Review: Tacoma

If I had played Gone Home when it released, I'm certain it would have been my game of the year in 2013. When I finally got around to playing it 2014, it blew me away. Gone Home was an experience unlike any other at the time. It was sti...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Watch_Dogs

Watch Dogs was supposed to be the first "true" next generation game for PS4 and Xbox One. When it was announced way back in 2012, it was accompanied by a mind blowing trailer that ended up being not so representative of the final produ...

 
 
 

Looking Back: Bioshock Infinite

This is a spoiler warning!! When Bioshock Infinite first came out, it was heavily praised for it's storytelling and it's signature "Irrational" twist. Years later, the games flaws have been heavily examined by the gaming community, an...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Outlast

Horror has to be the hardest genre to develop for. How many jump scares before the player stops caring? How long do you let the player wander before forcing down a path? How do you keep a player from breaking the immersion you so caref...

 
 
 

Looking Back: Call of Duty: World at War

This is a spoiler warning!! Often derided as a throwaway B-team effort, World at War is basically the red-headed stepchild of the franchise. The game was put in the unenviable position of being the follow up to Modern Warfare, and goi...

 
 
 

Injustice 2 Review

When NetherRealm Studios announced their next game after MKX would be Injustice 2, nobody was surprised. The first Injustice was a huge hit, one that built upon the MK formula in key ways but took a few liberties of it's own. Back to b...

 
 
 

Looking Back: Mass Effect 3

This is a spoiler warning!! About a month ago I finished a run through one of my all time favorite games, Mass Effect 2. To no ones surprise, it's still a damn masterpiece. It's not perfect, and their are plenty of things to nitpick, ...

 
 
 

Looking Back: Mass Effect 2

This is a spoiler warning!! About a year ago I took a look back at the Original Mass Effect. That playthrough confirmed to me that nostalgia goggles are in fact real, and the brains ability to mask negatives is truly astonishing. Now ...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Costume Quest 2

Let's get this out of the way, kids are not stupid. They can handle some complexity. There's a real thin line between a game built with an eye towards younger players and a game that's a complete snooze. Costume Quest 2 stradles that l...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Dishonored DE

The empire is in chaos. A plague carried across the land by vicious packs of rats is wreaking havoc. No one knows where these rats came from, but they multiply quickly and attack with single minded purpose. In the midst of this crisis,...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Halo 3: ODST

Halo 3: ODST is something of an anomaly in the Halo franchise. A smaller game that utilizes the same base mechanics the franchise is known for but places those mechanics in an unfamiliar shell. It's also the first Halo game where you d...

 
 
 

Backlog Review: Sleeping Dogs DE

Sleeping Dogs was a surprise hit when it landed on last gen consoles in August of 2012. It was a small miracle that it even made it to shelves. Activision had sloughed it off, stating it lacked the potential to be a top player in the ...

 
 
 

Wanna Bet? Fall 2015 Finale

In October last year I promised I would write this blog, and though it's a little later than I wanted it to be, I've finally found the time and inspiration to get it done. My "Wanna Bet?" series was supposed to be so much more when I conc...
