First (and Maybe Last) Impressions of DC Universe Online

In my household’s ongoing quest to find enjoyable multiplayer outings, we’ve found plenty of fodder. But lately, continued interest on both our parts has taken a dive. It Takes Two was a great thing, but not one to revisit; Bethesda’s offerings of ESO and Fallout 76 haven’t drawn either of us in lately (despite my…

Cyberpunk 2077: The Good, The Bad, and The So-So (So Far)

After spending some quality time with Firewatch and Unpacking, my gaming game plan look some like this: try out revamped GTA V on the PS5 (check – it is prettier, and that’s about all), head back into Fallout 76 to obtain a few more Tadpole/Possum badges for my raider Darlene (check), play and record Ori…

God of War and the Completion Conundrum

It’s done. It’s over. My time with God of War (2018) is complete…at least for now, as I always say. I left a ton of its world unexplored, but I saw through this first story of Kratos and his son Atreus, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. It was utterly fantastic, and…

Choosing My Own Adventure in Fallout 76

When I last wrote about Fallout 76 in November, I had given an “eh, so what?” to its newest mode, Fallout Worlds. Since then, I’ve only been back to Worlds (Private Worlds) once, cajoling my husband to formulate our own world and give it a go. That go lasted a single session, and we’ve not…

God of War is Good Enough to Make Me Forget About Dragon Age

Believe me when I say that I take my playthroughs of BioWare game very seriously. This means that once I get it in my head to replay any of either the Mass Effect or Dragon Age games in succession, nothing – and I mean nothing – gets in my way. Once I start a replay,…

Cary’s Most Anticipated Games of 2022

Bidding a final farewell to the year that was, it’s that time of the new year to look forward and consider the game we look forward to playing, or simply materializing, in 2022. This year claims the release of many significant titles, from new IPs to sequels to the new class of remakes and reboots;…

The Duck’s 2021 Game of the Year

It’s now the Duck’s turn to cover my game of the year!  While I didn’t exactly play a lot of games released in 2021, the few that I did were quite memorable indeed.  After perusing my choices, however, the most logical pick would have to be Psychonauts 2 thanks to its creativity and unique premise.

First Impressions of Grand Theft Auto III: The Definitive Edition

As of writing, I’m about 15 missions into Grand Theft Auto III from the Xbox version of *inhales* Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. *exhales.* Yes, it’s a mouthful of a title for this compilation, but it fits. Within this title are three remasters of Rockstar’s classic open-world adventures: GTA III, GTA:…

Fallout Worlds is Fallout 76’s Rose-Tinted Glasses Mode

A couple months ago, when I opted into Fallout 1st, Fallout 76’s subscription service, its custom world-building mode call Fallout Worlds was on the verge of release. It was not why I subbed; I only wanted to try out the game privately with an actual “lone wanderer.” In this regard, my current replay is moving…
