Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle First Impressions

In hindsight, I’m not sure if I picked the best or worst time to play Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch, 2017). When I got it a few weeks ago, I knew that Mass Effect Legendary Edition was in the wings, and I was already headlong into my Mass Effect: Andromeda replay. As well, Neverwinter…

More Details Arise for The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

Despite the mixed reception The Dark Pictures Anthology has received thus far, Supermassive games is dutifully moving forward with the next entry: House of Ashes. Little has been revealed of the game outside of an extremely short teaser, but that’s finally changing. The developer finally put out some more info earlier this week, with a…

Cat Quest: Demo Review

G’day, folks, in recent times, I have taken to downloading free demos as a means to experience a greater variety of games without having to pay for something I may not end up liking.  (Y’know, the very reason demos exist.)  Being someone who adores animals, especially those of the feline variety, it was no wonder…

Resident Evil Village is a Decent Action/Horror Hybrid

After finally getting around to playing Resident Evil 7, I was very much looking forward to seeing what Capcom would do with Resident Evil 8. I absolutely loved the tension-filled corridors of the Baker house in the previous game, so I was initially disappointed when it was announced that Village would be more like Resident…

Picking up where you left off, or starting over?

It was during a small lull recently that I decided to pop back into Neverwinter, a game that garnered my full attention between the turn of 2018 and 2019. I still followed the game’s happenings somewhat regularly and was aware that it had received a handful of updates since I had last played it. So…

Looks like QuakeCon is Going to be Digital-Only Again

Another day, another convention announcing that they’ll be “online-only” again in 2021. This time the convention in question is QuakeCon, the convention for fans of classic shooters, ID and of course Quake. The announcement came a couple of weeks ago, with the organizers basically saying that they’re doing this in the interest of staff and…

Hatoful Boyfriend: When Dating Birds Takes a Dark Turn

Hatoful Boyfriend is one of those weird games that seems like more myth than reality.  Made as an April Fool’s joke, this dating sim has the player pursuing relationships with…birds, who are portrayed as photos over illustrated backgrounds.  Like many before me, I bought this game out of sheer curiosity (it was on sale for…

On the Borderline: DOOM (2016)

Maybe this is just me but for I don’t know how many years now, there has existed a certain subset of games in my collection. These are games that I bought fully intending to play, but just can never find the right time to play. They are interesting enough to buy, but I’ll consistently prioritize…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #200

Up this week: Hatoful Boyfriend – even pigeons need love, which we quickly discover in this unusual (to say the least!) dating sim. Outer Wilds – we’re off to solve a time-looped mystery that’s as big as a solar system (and takes place in one, too) in this amazing and award-winning game! Nostalgic Notions –…
