Throwback Review: Mirror's Edge - Bottomless Pit
We all know that EA is... subversive, when it comes to evolution.

Well, with a heavy sigh of relief attached to it, 2018 is over.   Gaming-wise, when celebrities weren’t trying to be relate-able by mentioning Fortnite, the year was filled with all sorts of good games. In fact, one might go so far as to say it was better than 2017…

The Indie Investigation…

God, so many good games were released in 2018.   Alright, maybe not good. Unique at best. Alright, maybe not unique. Cynical at best… or just shit. Look, the point is that a lot of games were released as usual, and we haven’t had enough time or patience to…

Bugger it, let’s just be direct, enough with the metaphors.   Hello, this is an overall review of how Microsoft and their console, the Xbox One, performed in 2018. Here, we’ll be talking about how they attempted to dominate the market with their first-party exclusives, the sales figures of…

It’s everyone’s favorite publisher! Right? Okay, joking aside. . . I’m actually pretty concerned about Electronic Arts. I know they have terrible practices and whatnot, but their future looks quite grim. Their stock price went from nearly 149 dollars to below 80 dollars and it’s still dropping. Investors are…

I… I don’t even know where to start.   This might be a boring and overdone comparison, but do you know that bit in 2001: A Space Odyssey, where Bowman gets pulled into the vortex, and he sees all of these horrific visions? The really spooky music is playing in…

The MISSING Review…

Yeah, I’m not even going to put the entire name, that’s just insane.   SWERY is a man that needs more of a spotlight shed on him. He houses a mind that attempts to reveal the true human condition, and along with a lot of western influences, he manages…

I miss Left 4 Dead.   I mean, it hasn’t disappeared or anything, and you can certainly still play it with people, but I no longer have friends on hand like that, y’know? It’s the Halo nostalgia case once again, as everyone’s moved on to do bigger and better things. And all…

Ashen Review –…

Well, how’s this for an early Christmas gift? An objectively good game releasing on the Xbox Game Pass!   One thing I will say before anything is that Microsoft can eat a bag of sand for not even bothering to promote the sudden release of this title. Surprises are…
