Revisiting Yooka-Laylee Four Years Later

Years ago, I wrote a review for the original Yooka-Laylee, which I had played shortly after its release. Looking back, I’m surprised at how kind I was because…my true opinion of the game was a lot harsher than what was seen in that review. I think I felt bad complaining about the game too much…

Getting Familiar With Japan’s Arcade Music Games

Ever since I moved here last year, I’ve made a point of getting out and doing things rather than just holing up in my room. It was rather intimidating at first since everything is so different, but iit got easier as time went on. One of the things I really wanted to do was try…

Here, There, and Everywhere in The Witcher 3

Considering that my last update on my playthrough of The Witcher 3 was in November of 2020, one might think that I would be done with Geralt’s adventures some four months later.

Giving Thanks for Gaming My Own Way

There’s no getting around the fact that 2020 has been a rough year. We’ve all taken different avenues through which to weather its storm, and, for many of us, a significant path was paved by video games. We all play for different reasons. In recent times, my compulsion to play has revolved around a desire…

I’m Grateful For: A Sense of Normalcy

The season of giving thanks is upon us once more, and it is time to once again discuss what we’re thankful for when it comes to our favorite hobby.  My whole life has been consumed by one drastic change after another, but never before has this been more apparent than now, when the entire world…
