Worse Than Death…

469
One of the more philosophical questions here.   As we await for the endless void to consume us all, it makes us wonder what exists out there that makes us beg for the sweet release of death. Current world state jokes aside, there’s not much realistic in terms of…
Gameplay still from Observation, features NPC Jim floating from one chamber in the ship to the next

Observation Review —…

164
Nothing quite erodes the ego like bearing witness to utter isolation. A world comprised of limited parts that you still can’t grasp firm control of. The promise of an endless frontier and the barriers that confine it. Isolation is inseparable from any grounded space story, but Observation centers in…

Groundhog Day: Like…

169
If you ask just about anybody, they’ll tell you about Groundhog Day, an extremely popular movie from the early 1990s starring Bill Murray in one of his timeless roles. Tequila Works, the creators of Rime, took the movie and gave it a worthy sequel in the form of a…
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair Review

Yooka-Laylee and the…

613
Playtonic Games is back with another entry in the Yooka-Laylee series, because it is a series now. However, this time, instead of giving us another 3D platformer, they decided to shake it up and go 2.5D with a side-scrolling platformer. Was that really a good idea or did they…

World War Z…

282
You remember this film, right? Yeah, it’s somehow Brad Pitt’s highest-grossing film, yet nobody really knows why. I’ve never met a single person who goes beyond mild acceptance of its existence. If you wanna talk about placeholders, then the World War Z movie certainly fits in snugly as “Just another Zombie…

SPOOKTOBER 2019 Entry #1 – Next Entry: World War Z   It’s back! The 3rd installment of Spooktober!   The great jack- o’- lanterns in the sky know that I need this special occasion. All around me, people are more fascinated by the prospect of Christmas coming up than…

Borderlands 3 Review…

**SIDENOTE: This review of Borderlands 3 and its content is based entirely around a playthough with Moze. This may make an impact in whatever critiques I have to say about the gameplay.   Also, beware of minor/major spoilers. They’re necessary to talk about.**   This series that needs no introduction, I…

GreedFall Review –…

642
To say GreedFall is a bad game wouldn’t entirely be correct. It’s a cohesive world that matches perfectly with the U.I. and other small details show it was made with love. Developer Spiders isn’t very well known, with its previous two titles Bound By Flame and Technomancer not exactly…
Links Awakening Cover Art

The Legend of…

328
The original Link’s Awakening has a special place in the hearts of those who played it. Its surreal, Twin Peaks-inspired atmosphere and its character-driven story combined to create a unique Zelda experience that is still yet to be matched, even after a quarter of a century. After lying dormant…

The Sojourn Review…

242
Well, I’m sure we’ve done this rodeo… many, many times.   From Portal to Pneuma, Qube to Quantum Conundrum, Braid to The Bridge, blah blah blah, we have another one after so long. The ol’ narrative puzzle-platformer dance that’s been executed across many a universe, and many a pretension. Welcome to The Sojourn.   This is the debut title…
