This Was Unexpected

Well, I’ve finished Control’s last DLC add-on: AWE. As expected, it only lasted a few hours, but it took some twists and turns that I didn’t really expect. It’s strange; I kind of got what I wanted in it, got a piece of news I never expected and still walked away feeling a little disappointed….

Alan Wake is Back in Control, And I’m Psyched!

I finally got around to trying out the DLC for Control, and I have to say that I’m really enjoying it. The first portion, The Foundation, was interesting enough. It added a new sector and gave new insight into the origins of The Bureau and their relationship with The Board. Control thrives on giving its…

Off to a Good Start with The Witcher 3

When I sat down unencumbered and ready to finally and fully enjoy The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt a couple weeks ago, I was…nervous? Yes, nervous. And intimidated. Before me lain no mere game. Rather, it was an RPG masterpiece that had received countless awards, industry-wide acclaim, and praise from game site large and small. And…

I Just Don’t FEEL Like it…

Tell me if this feels at all familiar: I’ve been sitting here for the past couple of weeks trying to figure out what to play next. I’ve dabbled in games here and there, stuff like Fall Guys and Destiny 2, but I haven’t yet found a game that I really want to play. Meanwhile, I’ve…

My Dragon Age 4 Wishlist

Of all the amazing next gen games that we’ve gotten glimpses of this year, none have me more excited than the next Dragon Age title. BioWare’s been tight-lipped about the game’s promise, but a couple weeks ago, at Gamescom 2020, they finally opened up, just a little, about what may be in store in the…

I Think I’m Done with New Paper Mario Games

There was a time when Paper Mario was one of my absolute favorite series. I loved just about everything about them. I loved the aesthetic; I loved the characters; I loved the writing, the combat system, and the way they made Mario’s world feel bigger than the same old Mushroom Kingdom we’ve seen time and…

Going Back in Time With Animal Crossing (On N64!)

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a landmark release for the series in a number of ways, one of which was to catapult it from a niche following to mainstream interest. For me, it got me thinking about past Animal Crossing games, the very first one in particular. I’ve always had a warm place in…

The Talos Principle Proves that I Still Have A Lot to Learn

In Jim’s Henson’s movie Labyrinth, there’s a scene where the protagonist (who is stuck in said labyrinth) is told that a solid rock wall contains an opening. After visually inspecting the wall and believing that if it looks like a wall, it is a wall (onscreen, it does look like a solid wall), she’s told…

Fall Guys -Ultimate Knockout- is a Silly, Fun Time

Ever since I saw the first trailer for Fall Guys -Ultimate Knockout- back during E3 2019 (I think that’s when it was anyway), I’ve been quietly looking forward to it. I wasn’t super-psyched for it, and I wasn’t feeling the hype. Rather, I’d find myself thinking that it looked like a very charming game offering…
