  • 2016 Gaming Update 2

    I’m going to try to be better about blogging, and writing reviews/gaming. I am having a little issue with DirectTV (ie, the hard drive on my box imploded and the new box they sent isn’t working, so watching TV is a bit of a challenge). With... More
  • One-Hit Wonders: Psi-Ops

    Not every one-hit wonder game is terrible, nor is it by the hands of one company whom we'll never hear of again. Contrary, Psi-Ops was awesome! It's rare that I've played a game that had mediocre firefights, bland levels, a bland protagonist... More
  • Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X

    (Originally posted to my blog: ) Xenoblade Chronicles X (XCX) is one of great potential for sure, but did it succeed in meeting up with the high expectations and hype flowing from Xenoblade Chronicles (XC)? Personally,... More
  • "Damsels" of Zelda 101: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

    I have something embarrassing to admit. I’ve never actually beaten Zelda II: The Adventure of Link because when I was little I thought that you couldn’t go off of the path. Because of this, I never even made it to the first dungeon, just the... More
  • The Witness Review

    The Witness feels like the kind of game that we're sadly seeing fewer and fewer of, and I think that's due in part to the fact that it just feels like gamers are distancing themselves from. And what I mean by that is that we get so caught up in... More
  • Game Club - FF7 part 1: Escape Midgar

    I first played FF7 my senior year of college in 2005/2006. My brother gave me his PS2 and when my friend saw I had one he said I had to get this game called Final Fantasy VII. So I found the PS1 4 disk game on ebay. My friend and I would play it together... More
  • What I Want From: Life Is Strange 2

    Life Is Strange is a game that completely took me by surprise a few weeks ago. I had played episode 1 right after it released and felt very underwhelmed by the game, I had no idea what it was building up to. After episode 2, I was hooked. Characters that... More
  • Monster in the House // Resident Evil 4's Regenerator

    It's well-known that most games aren't exactly pacifistic: in some form or another many games see players fighting against or in conflict with some sort of adversarial force. As such, the quality of that adversary can sometimes make or break the... More
  • One-Hit Wonders: Evolve

    Evolve is one of those games that blew its load too quickly, then shot blanks when it was time to keep the momentum going. It was a great game...for a while. For a game that was insanely hyped up to be THE next hot online shooter, it sure fizzled out... More
  • Community Writing Challenge: Relating to Firewatch

    Firewatch, one of the most beautiful games I've ever seen and one of my most anticipated games this year Games have told gamers amazing stories, but the ones that gamers cling to the most are ones they can relate to. Most commonly, we empathize with... More
  • Now Playing - Alien: Isolation

    I've been working my way through Alien: Isolation lately. I think work is a good word to use because it's felt like that at some points. This game has been challenging so far, but that's part of why I'm enjoying it. I got this game back... More

    Despite losing Jack to a case of crippling mouth pain, Jeremy and Daniel soldier on through episode eleven to talk about Insomniac Games' finale to the Resistance trilogy. Though it released to mixed reviews and some heated opinions regarding its... More
