The Battlefield 1 Campaign has Huge Potential (Quickie)

The newest trailer for Battlefield 1’s single player campaign dropped recently and, suffice it to say, the game looks spectacular. The two-minute trailer was packed with high octane action sequences and a surprising amount of heart. The action looking spectacular is a given, this is a Battlefield game after all and one thing that modern first- person shooters can do […]

My World of Warcraft Impressions

  As I sit here writing this piece, I have World of Warcraft Alt+Tabbed behind me. The echoes of the beautiful score rippling into my headphones is filling me with a sense of nostalgia for a game that I actively disliked. This nostalgia is deceptive and I’m recognizing that, but I can’t help but feeling this enjoyment for a bygone […]

Why I love Dragon’s Dogma

After my long hiatus, I’m finally back and ready to talk about games. I thought I’d talk today about one of my favorite games: Dragon’s Dogma! Hope you enjoy! I’ve discussed many times the importance of a strong narrative in Video Games. When I say this I don’t mean that every game needs to have an epics worth of dialogue […]

Brut@l Review

I recently realized that I’ve devoted quite a few articles towards the roguelite genre. It’s a testament towards my love for the particular sub-genre. Roguelites and Roguelikes are interesting since they’re so abundant in the marketplace that Steam is absolutely over saturated with twenty roguelike games a day. That’s why when a truly impressive roguelike game is released, it deserves […]

5 hours with: Titanfall 2

The Titanfall 2 tech test was released earlier this week and like many of you, I eagerly downloaded my copy and prepared for a revolutionary step forward for first-person shooters. Alright, I’m exaggerating the last part a bit but either way, I can’t deny that I had some pretty damn high expectations for Titanfall 2 going into this tech demo. Now, the […]

Headlander Review

Metroidvania’s are a subgenre of gaming that spawned after the wildly massive success of both the Metroid series and the Castlevania series. This particular genre has spawned hundreds of games and has gone on to influence many others. It’s safe to say that the gaming landscape, and more specifically, what we began to expect from games was forever changed with these […]

5 hours with: No Man’s Sky

Disclaimer: I spent more than 5 hours with No Man’s Sky. I’ve probably spent closer to 20 hours with the game but looking as 5 hours with is the name of the series now and not just my actual playtime I’d want to clarify.  Every few years a game is released that absolutely captivates its audience with the promise of […]

Pigsodus Preview

Pigs are incredible animals aren’t they? They give me bacon, sausages, ribs, and, according to the people over at Psilocybe Games, protection from menacing frog demons promising the absolute destruction of the world. I’d have to argue that the sausage and bacon are of a greater importance than the latter but to each their own. I recently sat down with the demo […]

Beat Cop Preview

Video Games that focus on the daily grind of a police officers job, or any job for that matter, are few and far between. Instead, we foucs on the bombastic, guns blazing aspect of their job that doesn’t exist. The issue is that the day to day life of a cop is boring and mundane like the day to day of […]

5 hours with: We Happy Few

We Happy Few by Compulsion Games made quite the impression on me at E3 2016. I hadn’t even thought about it going in to the convention but it quickly worked it’s into one of my games of the show. It exuded a fascinating style, particularly reminiscent of the works of George Orwell. After seeing the game at E3 I hadn’t […]

Breached Review

Breached, the first game from developer Drama Drifters, is a harrowing tale of survival and isolation. This game taps on that instinct that is required to survive and the loneliness and isolation that accompanies it, all while the threat of impending doom lurks in the back of your mind. This takes the survival genre in a whole new, exciting direction; […]

SteamWorld Heist (Quickie)

I’ve mentioned in previous posts as to the difficult relationship I’ve had with strategy games. They can be boring and unexciting at the best of times and unplayable messes at the worst. Only a few strategy games have ever been able to chip past my stone wall of instant abject boredom and actually work with me, but when a strategy […]

The Creeps: Resident Evil VII

I’ve had a rather tumultuous history with the Resident Evil franchise. They’ve always been competent and interesting shooters with ridiculous stories and, most detrimental to me, cheap scares that border on non-existent on the spooky-o-meter. Resident Evil was also a series that lost it’s footing along the way. Does it want to be a lumbering, tank control game or a fast paced […]

5 hours with: Satellite Reign

The cyberpunk subgenre is one that I absolutely adore. I’ve read countless books and short stories, all of them leaving them with that bit of childlike glee after reading it. It’s actually really strange, I’m really attracted to this genre, with all of its weird quirks. Blade Runner is, aesthetically, one of the most visually enjoyable movies I have ever […]
