  • Ultimate Boss: Lord Braska's Final Aeon (A Personal Narrative)

  • Backlog Challenge- Valiant Hearts: The Great War

    Like many others, I crack jokes about Ubisoft’s homogenization of their AAA installments. Bland “open-worlds” better described as open-spaces with busy work, tower climbing, fortress liberation, and collectathons. You can find all of... More
