When Horizon Zero Dawn came out, the world was just a little busy with another open world game you may have heard of. Despite that, the game was successful both commercially and critically. I always thought it had a great setting and look, and I’m always down for a game starring a badass female lead.… Continue reading (PS4) Horizon Zero Dawn, A Review. (Mechanized Dumpster Diving)
When I was twelve my father tried out this game called Unreal Tournament 2003. He really enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as I did. I quickly fell in love with the fast paced competition, grew too good for the bots, and took my skills online, which became an addiction for years. During that… Continue reading Half-Life Review
My review went up a couple days ago of the 90’s FPS Quake II. It was a great game that I was able to burn through quite quickly, and as such I burned through writing about it such that I missed some key notes I wanted to talk about. For starters, this game has you… Continue reading On Quake II
Quake II was more known for its contribution to the online multiplayer scene. I never played its version of death match, though I’ve definitely played Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament, so you could call me an expert. It was fun multiplayer.

It was one of those cultural touchstones that new dads go to youtube for, leaving cringy comments in videos of Superman… Continue reading Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater (N64)

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a remake of the NES title Fire Emblem Gaiden released on the 3DS in the year 2017. This is almost one year away from when they released three versions of the same exact fucking game with Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, Birthright, and Resolution. I was very put off… Continue reading Fire Emblem Echoes Gaiden 3DS Critty. “Critty!” A Review.
The first fighting game series I loved was Mortal Kombat. Being a child of the 90s, I was obsessed with the brutality, the fatalities, and a yellow ninja named Scorpion. I rented Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 many times. I had dreams of waking up and seeing the game sitting in the slot of my Super… Continue reading Rank my Childhood!

When it comes to indie games, roguelikes and lites are my favorite genre in much of the same way people used to love going to the arcade. You see something with an aesthetic that meshes with your interests, it feels great to play, but it feels incredibly challenging such that one play session often becomes… Continue reading RANK THE ROGUE!
