My Top 5(ish) Games I Played in 2015

I was never intending to post a blog on this topic, but I had some inspiration (or perhaps a revelation), and found myself coming up with this. That said, I'm going to have to cheat a bit here, as I haven't really played...

 
 
 

I Love Shadow of the Colossus!

[This is an essay I wrote a while ago for my college work. It wasn't for a formal assignment, but instead just a practice piece that we were allowed to pick any topic for. So I decided to gush about SotC. I've been sitting on it for ag...

 
 
 
 
 

On Finishing Games and Why Backlogs Aren't Evil

Although it may not be something that's been in game news particularly recently, the issue of backlogs and finishing games is still a point of contention that a lot of people seem to place a significant amount of value on. It's almost unive...

 
 
 

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is the final chapter in the quasi-trilogy of the Lords of Shadow games. In this entry you play as Dracula himself. Much like the other games in the series, it is flawed, but is overall a satisfying experience ...

 
 
 

The Sorry State of the Racing Genre

If you've read my posts in these blogs before, you'll probably know I'm a big fan of racing games. Outside of gaming I'm a bit of a car guy too, so I love being able to indulge in both of these hobbies in one place. But as I've been looking...

 
 
 
 

Castlevania: LoS - A Close Look at a Flawed Gem

I recently finished Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. It was a very interesting game, and I found it gave me a lot to talk about. While this could be taken as a review, I'm approaching this more as an in depth critique, covering everything I th...

 
 
 

Forza 5 vs. Xbox One

The announcement of the Xbox One, or "Xbone" as some people are calling it (it's a better name at least), has put me in the most conflicted position I've ever been in regarding games. I've never had any love for the Xbox itself. It's been F...

 
 
 

Games are Terrible at Telling Stories

Since I've hopefully grabbed your attention with my wildly sensationalised and misleading title, I perhaps owe it to you to explain what I mean. I don't actually mean that games are terrible at telling stories outright, but I think there i...

 
 
 

Musings on the Gameplay of Bioshock Infinite

This morning I realised something about Infinite that I think is actually a pretty big flaw, especially compared to the previous games of the series. I was listening to the Gamestation podcast yesterday and they were talking about Infinite...

 
 
 

It's Not a Game, But That's Okay

There have been a lot of games recently that have been getting a lot of attention for their unique and untraditional approach, often focusing around narrative or atmosphere instead of action or a test of skill. Games like Proteus, The Walki...

 
 
 

Zone of the Enders HD Review: Unique and Exhilarating

[Preface: So this is my first contribution to the c-blogs. This isn't what I was expecting my first submission to be, but I thought it was worth sharing. In the future I may do more reviews, but it's more likely I'll be doing something more...

 
 

About Scrustleone of us since 2:06 PM on 04.27.2012

Hello all, I'm Scrustle. I've had a strong love for games for most of my life. The original Pokemon games and Zelda: Majora's Mask are what first got me in to gaming, but I didn't branch out much beyond that until the generation after.

Favourite genres are action adventure games in the vein of Zelda, racing games, RPGs, and action games like DMC etc., but I enjoy plenty of other genres from time to time as well.
