A trashfire most famous for a character creator, and for coming out the same year as Sonic Mania proving to the world that Sonic Team was still up to their old bullshit: making awkwardly playing 3D titles that cause more head scratching than fun. Forces was the latest (at time or writing) offering from Sonic… Continue reading Sonic Forces. “Create your own Trash!” A Review.

Throughout the various stages of my life I have gone through spells of obsession over the Mortal Kombat series. It was a huge favorite of my childhood. My favor returned once MK9 released in 2011. It has appeared every so often only to be extinguished quickly and today, it has come back in the form… Continue reading Mortal Kombat X Review
Hello Last Friday the remake of Resident Evil 2 finally came out. Resident Evil 2 was my first survival horror game. I rented the Nintendo 64 port several times, yet never beat the game. Still, it was a cherished moment playing that game in the dark with a friend and screaming whenever I went down… Continue reading Resident Evil 2 REmake. First Playthrough. “X Gonna Give It A Ten.” A Review, Part 1.
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 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

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. But today I finished the single player campaign. I originally owned the game… Continue reading (PC) Quake II Review

One Strike doesn’t feature combos, or complex commands for special moves. With six characters to choose from, you block, attack, and dodge.

The 90s. Everyone who played video games in the 90s played Tony Hawk Pro Skater, and I’m willing to bet most people around my age played it without having been heavily into video games. 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)
