Risk of Rain? More Like Risk of Rain 2

First of all I’d like to say hello, I haven’t written an article in a while, and to be honest I have no real reason for it. Second, what is up with this new editor? Everything looks different and I’m scared. Anyways, Risk of Rain is a game that came out in 2013 and Risk […]

My 2018 In Video Games

Because I lack any humor I once had, I don’t want to do elaborate awards this year. Instead, I’ll give my thoughts on some games I explored or rediscovered this year. At the end, I comment about some things potentially coming in 2019. The Alliance Alive The little 3DS is so proud of its success, […]

Tsugunai – Atonement

Think about your favorite town in a JRPG. Anyone who’s played a JRPG has a favorite, and usually a different one from everyone else. Why you like the town varies: maybe it’s from one of the first games you’ve played, or it reminds you of your home town, you really like the setting or stories, […]

Uplink

Seemingly the entire PC simulation game genre has a tendency to give the player immediate head-first immersion. That immersion is in both senses of the word: complete theming of all audio/visual elements of the game, and complete detachment from guiding the player, forcing them to make mistakes and learn from them. Uplink, a 2001 game […]

Ape Escape

If there’s one thing I love most about video games, it’s controls. I’m more likely to forgive a game’s flaws if it tries to use controls in a unique way, and many of my favorite games (like MGS 2 and Katamari) use unique controls well. So when the development team for Ape Escape saw what […]

Kero Blaster

Kero Blaster is a game by Daisuke Amaya, or Pixel, the same guy who made Cave Story. It’s almost impossible not to mention and compare Cave Story when talking about Kero Blaster, despite the games sharing few similarities. The influence of Cave Story basically redefining the indie game industry, and leading to the overabundance of […]

Valve and Why I Don’t Pay For (most) Games

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 […]

Parasite Eve Retrospective Review
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 […]

WHY writes about Games Don't Need To Be Shorter
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 […]

May 2017 – Death and Rebirth

This month in video games played with what few emotions I have left. Mostly contained in two, completely unrelated events, about the availability of two unique but flawed third person shooters which initially released exclusively on 7th gen consoles. I’m talking about Alan Wake and Vanquish. tl;dr: I recommend both of them, but they aren’t […]

The Tale of the Cracker Connoisseur

Once upon a time there was a cracker connoisseur who was named William Henry York or something like that. He had eaten crackers all his life, and soon came to realize there was more to crackers than being simply a salty snack. Lately, he was in search of a more sophisticated cracker. He had always […]
