Skyforge was Fine but Forgettable

In my ongoing quest to try out various free multiplayer games, I had heard of, even if only slightly, all the games on my list except one. Skyforge. Granted, I hadn’t gone out to research every MMO ever made, so maybe me being in the dark about this title was to be expected. I watched…

Skate Story Looks Transcendent!

With all of the nonsense that goes on in the games industry these days, it can be rather easy to lapse into resigned melancholy when thinking on its future. For me, I often can’t help but wonder if everything is going to wind up being subscription services like Xbox Game Pass and free-to-play cash grabs…

Lasting Impressions from a Big Week for Games

June 6th to the 14th was a big week for games. In lieu of E3, fans of video games received a plethora of different gaming panels, events, and reveals via various streams, from the familiar Summer Game Fest event hosted by the familiar Geoff Keighley, to the wild and crazy antics of Devolver Digital, to…

Maybe We Got P.T. After All

Do you remember P.T.? It’s been almost 8 years since Hideo Kojima released his concept for Silent Hill and took the gaming d by storm, and yet seemingly nothing ever materialized from it. Or, maybe something has. Thanks to the very public split of Konami and Kojima, we never got the full and true version…

Resonance: ‘Go Tell Aunt Rhody’

Usually when we talk about video game music, we talk about music that’s actually in the game and part of the soundtrack. I mean, typically it’s the only music that’s associated with a given game so it’s really the only option. There are special cases though, and Michael Levene’s version of “Go Tell Aunt Rhody”…

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…

Better Late than Cruddy

Recently, Bethesda announced that their two very highly-anticipated games: Starfield and Redfall, would be getting pushed back a bit to a 2023 release date. Their reasoning was simple: they felt that the games needed more time in the oven, and they didn’t want their projects to end up as the new Cyberpunk 2077. It’s pretty…

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…

Low-Level Multiplayer is the Best

A while back, I started playing the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game, and I’ve learned quiet a bit about it in the year or so that’s passed since then. First, I’ve learned that just about any trading card game is going to be expensive to participate in. It’s amazing just how much money it takes to put…

Soulsborne After Elden Ring

As frequenters of this blog may know, I wasn’t really a fan of the Soulsborne series until very recently. I’d tried a couple of the games before, but I just didn’t get hooked for whatever reason. After playing through Elden Ring though, that’s changed. Rather than looking at the series passively without much interest, I…
