Salt and Sanctuary: Would you like Salt with your tears?

It’s good these days to be a Dark soul’s fan, what with the recent rerelease of Demon Soul’s, a game that was feared lost to the void of copyright law, and the ever so encouraging prospect of Bloodborne 2 being a possibility. It’s good that these types of difficult games are coming back into theContinue reading “Salt and Sanctuary: Would you like Salt with your tears?”

Good Job: Another chair through the wall

In these trying times, I feel as if we need to inject some fun in our lives, whether it be through positive mediums like hiking, fishing, surfing, etc. or through less helpful mediums like binge-watching Gotham or challenging yourself to drink a 12 pack of Redbull at four in the morning. While there are goodContinue reading “Good Job: Another chair through the wall”

198X: Small town and even Smaller story

I feel as if I have the opposite of a Midas touch, as in every story based game I’ve played recently has ended up disappointing me. I was really looking forward to 198x, with its fantastic trailer and beautiful 80’s styling. I hoped it might make for a compelling, emotional drama that many people, myselfContinue reading “198X: Small town and even Smaller story”

Firewatch

I’ve been playing a lot of combat focused action games these past few weeks, and I’ve been craving something that really gets you in the feels, so I turned to a darkness, a deep force that no man can penetrate, the depths of which few have managed to come back from with their insanity intact:Continue reading “Firewatch”

Hellsign: Come Hell or High Water

If you ask me what my dream job would be it’d be a monster hunter in a heartbeat. I’ve long been fascinated with monsters and cryptozoology. Sadly, I’m often dissatisfied with monster hunting games on the market. Monster Hunter World just wasn’t my cup of pterodactyl flavored tea, and the Witcher series is decent enough,Continue reading “Hellsign: Come Hell or High Water”

Space Crew Review

One of my favorite real time strategy games on Steam, oddly enough, was a WWII bomber simulator called Bomber Crew. It was centered around logistics and planning, rather than real time dogfighting, and emphasized strategic use of abilities each crewmember had, from gunners, to radiomen, to engineers. It was all put together very well, andContinue reading “Space Crew Review”

Space Haven: Home Away From Home

While the idea of building a space colony hasn’t been trod upon quite as much from other genres, such as roguelikes or old school fps, it still is a popular genre that anybody who wants to break into needs to set themselves apart from, be it interesting new gameplay styles that are the invert ofContinue reading “Space Haven: Home Away From Home”

Skirmish Line

The days of old school Flash Games are coming to an end, sadly. Long ago, places like Newgrounds, Addicting Games .com, and of course Miniclip, ruled the landscape as a free, easy way of playing different genres of games. I remember playing my first violent video game on Addicting games: the Thing-Thing. Unfortunately, those daysContinue reading “Skirmish Line”

Assassins Creed Unity: The Fall of a Titan

With the recent trough of Ubisoft sandboxes such as Watchdogs Legion and Ghost Recon Breakpoint, I’m feeling the same tiredness towards sandbox games. Not all are necessarily bad per se, but they do tend to lack variety despite many of their games covering vastly different genres. The Ubisoft Sandbox is a pillar of the gameContinue reading “Assassins Creed Unity: The Fall of a Titan”
