I don’t write much about current events because usually I don’t care, but here I go. Recently, Valve has made some decisions concerning the sale of certain games on Steam, and I’m sure you can find out details on your own. But the important part is what it means for the sale of PC games… Continue reading Valve and Why I Don’t Pay For (most) Games

Who Is PlayerUnknown? Solving the Greatest Mystery of Our Time.

There are questions that, with enough time and enough lack of answers, become embedded in the human psyche. The collective consciousness of mankind still asks themselves every day about the functionality of magnets, or whether someone shot and killed John F. Kennedy, or if his head just did that. There’s been one specific question on… Continue reading Who Is PlayerUnknown? Solving the Greatest Mystery of Our Time.

Loom

Do you have a moment to talk about Loom? Loom is an 1990 Lucasarts Lucasfilm Games point-and-click adventure game made for DOS. Despite this incredibly specific genre category, it’s almost nothing like Maniac Mansion or The Secret of Monkey Island. I’ll spare the summary, since it’s more worthwhile for you to play the extremely short… Continue reading Loom

The Year in Review: Video Games 2017

2017 was a year in which video games were released, I think. Much better than all those years where video games were not released. Anyways, I did make an article like this last year.

Firstly – Nathan Grayson, go fuck yourself. I have been working in the journalism industry for half a decade, and I have been around journalism and the products thereof for my entire life.

Parasite Eve

This time of year, everyone has the same argument with the same people: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Sure, it takes place during Christmastime, and there is quite a lot of references to the holiday, but is that what makes it so? At the end of the day, it’s still an enjoyable, well-made film… Continue reading Parasite Eve

The Top 5 Things I Learned From Watching All Of The “Death Stranding” Trailers On Hard Drugs

Hideo Kojima. Where do I even start? An absolute visionary in his field, and one of the most clear-cut examples of why anyone should even take the “video games are art” discourse remotely seriously. Kojima is best known for his work on the Metal Gear Solid series, and some other stuff too, I think. I… Continue reading The Top 5 Things I Learned From Watching All Of The “Death Stranding” Trailers On Hard Drugs

Games Don’t Need To Be Shorter

But they shouldn’t be longer either. What do you think when someone tells you a game is 100 hours long? Chances are you don’t get excited; I wouldn’t. Experience shows that a game that long is going to have lots of padding, and most of that time is spent unsatisfied. There’s a point in any… Continue reading Games Don’t Need To Be Shorter

Spooktober: Kid Dracula

Kid Dracula is a Castlevania spinoff released in 1993 for the Gameboy. It’s a sequel/remake of an earlier, inferior Japan-only NES game. You play as Dracula’s son, on a quest to save the castle or something, the story was neither clear nor important. The game doesn’t really play similar to Castlevania as you might expect,… Continue reading Spooktober: Kid Dracula
