GoNNER Review –…

This Saturday was awful.   Here I am, October a month away, and I’m trying to write all of these horror pieces, but then I hear about how good Bad North is. Then I hear about Nefarious being worse than finding out your mother knew a relative of Hitler. Then I start playing…

Immortal: Unchained Review…

Don’t do it, Sam, don’t compare this to Dark Souls throughout the entire review. Okay...   Y’know, I think the world, ideas, and the begrudging charm of Warhammer 40k needs a bigger representation in video games, and I’m not talking about the unbelievably overpriced games like Inquisitor. The appeal and nature of it is still…

ADIOS Amigos Review…

1353
I’ll be honest, I don’t like these infinitely-expanding space exploration games.   Maybe it’s the daunting tasks building up to it, the slow burn that requires you to get a decent upkeep and standard. No Man’s Sky, Elite: Dangerous, FTL: Faster Than Light, the original Elite on Commodore 64, with the latter being…
