Hello. How are you? Your err... hands smell nice?

 

Excuse the formalities, but I feel like maybe I've been a bit too much of a Negative Nancy lately. Here I am,

“Do you think God stays in heaven because he fears what he’s created here on Earth?”   The infamous line from Spy Kids 2 has resonated with me for years, all the way back when I was a little tyke watching those stupid films. I’m a nihilistic person at heart, and…

This week was a bit awful, I’ll admit.   Summer Spotlight trundled out in full force as per, with the promise of interesting titles galore. But after some time, that promise slowly decayed into an evening of disappointment for your debonair host. The Long Dark was looking to be an interesting…

Maybe presentation doesn’t matter in video games as much as it used to.   About a year ago, I used to judge media on the cover, which lead to some.. Questionable purchases. I’d say there was a 30% chance of success with every game, and for someone who owns…

Speed isn’t a factor in video games as much as it used to be.   I still find it incredibly hilarious that the infamous Doomguy barrelled through Doom 1 at a speed faster than Usain Bolt, and then Doom 3 happened. And all that disappeared in favour of making System Shock but with Cacodemons. Even…

Remember when Minecraft came to public attention?   God, what a storm. Every man, woman, child and bacterial cell came out of the woodwork to praise its sheer scope of creativity and like always, the imitators arrived in full force, looking to make a quick dollar. Castleminer Z, Terraria, No Man’s Sky,…
