I Definitely Don’t Need It, And Yet…

I like to think that I’m fairly resistant to the video game hype train these days. I’ve been in the gaming world for decades at this point, so I should have some sort of a resistance built up to it all by now. In practice though, I’m not so sure that’s true. I don’t pre-order…

Waiting For Night City

If all goes well, we’ll finally have the chance to play Cyberpunk 2077 next month. We’re only a little over a month away now, or at least I hope we are. It’s been eight years now since the game was announced back in May 2012. We’ve played through an entire console generation in that time,…

Is it Finally Time to Go Back?

Recently, BioWare (or rather the EA studio calling itself BioWare) announced Mass Effect Legendary Edition. As of spring 2021, fans will be able to enjoy remastered versions of all three games on current-gen consoles. It’s something that many fans have been asking for for a long time, and I’m happy they’ll be able to enjoy…

Uncanny Accounts – History Recurses Forever in Transistor

One of my all-time favorite games is Supergiant Games’ Transistor. I love how the combat works. I love the art style. I love the characters, the world and the overall plot. Cloudbank is a beautiful world, one that was seemingly a joy to live in before the Fall. However, not everyone thought that way, which…

Uncanny Accounts – Destiny’s Paracausal Nightmare

Hello all and welcome back to another Uncanny Account! Last week I dipped into Hollow Knight’s lore and we explored the inevitable horror of the Infection. Try as they might, there was nothing the bugs of Hallownest could do to escape their fate. It’s a pretty scary thing to think about, but what if the…

Nier Replicant Launches April 23

Okay, so this isn’t exactly breaking news, but I’m still feeling pretty excited about this announcement. It was a pretty pleasant surprise when Square Enix announced that they would be bringing the original Nier back with upgraded visuals (and more?), so it’s going to be kind of a hard wait until Nier Replicant launches in…

Uncanny Accounts: The Purpose of the Shadow Temple

This month of Uncanny Accounts is all about video games and the creepy, spooky, odd or downright strange stories in and around them. While there are lesser-known tales to regale you all with, I figured the best way to kickoff a month of terrifying virtual tales is with the story behind a truly classic dungeon:…

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…
