Celebrating #Zelda35 in July!

Thirty-five years ago, Nintendo introduced an adventure RPG called The Legend of Zelda. It was a runaway hit in Japan then; and when it arrived in the United States a year later, it became the first Nintendo game in the states to reach one millions copies sold. After the original game, The Legend of Zelda…

Shadow of the Colossus: Ranking All Colossi

As the name suggests, Shadow of the Colossus has some of the biggest boss fights in gaming history.  In general, these sixteen colossi are, well, colossal, and today, I thought it would be fun to rank them all, from the most aggravating or otherwise disappointing to the most epic and downright awesome (the order in…

Top 5: Things I’m Loving in the “New” Mass Effect

Even though it felt like I had a pretty full gaming plate at the time Mass Effect Legendary Edition released, of course I had to dive in as soon as decent window of opportunity presented itself. I’m about two-thirds of the way through the “legendary” version of ME1 with my renegade engineer Lynn Shepard, and…

What’s the Scariest Little Nightmares Monster?

Now that Little Nightmares 2 has been released, I thought it might be fun to rank every monster from the first and second games in order of least frightening to most nightmare-inducing (with a number next to their name to signify from which game they originate).  This list will include the Secrets of the Maw…

Well, we’ve made it. 2020 is finally gone and 2021 is here at last. Will it be any better than its predecessor? Who knows? I hope so. At the very least there are many interesting games on the horizon, and these are the ones I’m most looking forward to!

Listmas 2020: Cary’s Most Anticipated Games of 2021

Know that we’ve kicked 2020 out the door for good (though, that’s still questionable, I guess), it’s time for me to take a look into that which may pepper my gaming landscape in 2021. Frankly, my biggest hope for this year is actually obtaining an XBX or a PS5, but neither my Xbox One nor…

To end off Listmas 2020, we’re going to talk about what games we’re most looking forward to in 2021!  In addition to new releases, I was going to list a few games I’d most like to see added to the Nintendo Switch Online service, as well.
