This past week, I had the pleasure of being on the show floor of E3 and experiencing a vast array of content for the first time ever. Without wasting your time, these are all the titles I experienced, including a little first impression for each:     BIOMUTANT Developer:…

Nintendo Direct E3…

109
Well, that certainly spiced things up. At the end of a rather unexciting E3, Nintendo decided it was a good time to go all out this year, and boy did they bring the heat. In under an hour, Nintendo announced plenty of surprises and updates fans have been hungering…

Star Wars Jedi:…

It’s amazing how much a simple, fourteen-minute gameplay trailer can tell you about the latest upcoming title. Everybody is excited to have a legitimate Star Wars campaign to play through, and we’ll be examining what should be tickling our Star Wars bones and what should actually have us concerned…

What to Expect…

Inside the all-encompassing laboratory for capitalist media experimentation, no prospect holds a futuristic glint quite like the ability for a celebrity to upload their likeness in full to the digital realm, the chance for a figure to embolden a B-list IP with their ever marketable presence despite how superfluous…

Asagao Academy

Yeah, I’ll say it. I unironically adored Asagao Academy when it first came out. I played it on warm summer mornings, not long after I finished my junior year of high school. The music was perfect, the prose was gorgeous, and there was nothing I’d rather be doing while I waited…

Video Games, Counterpoint:…

A friend of mine here on the site recently posted an article entitled Video Games: A Purpose Forgotten. It’s a good article, I’d recommend reading it, but I personally disagree with his central thesis. In summary, he argued that with the rise of competitive video games like Overwatch, Rocket League, CS:GO, and other…

Like many other countries, unfortunately, The UK is going through a homeless epidemic.   According to a recent study made in November of 2018, housing charity Shelter claimed that there were over 320,000 homeless people living on the streets of England, Wales, and Scotland combined,y.

Remember the first time you played The Typing of The Dead? It’s an underrated feeling. That novelty of your first playthrough slowly being overtaken by genuine curiosity and wonder as the original comedic intentions turn into genuine intensity, and once you finish it? You go through it again and pray…
