The Sims 4, or, What the Heck am I Doing and Why am I Doing it

As proof that the universe works in mysterious ways, I have made the potentially questionable choice to dive into some personally uncharted gaming waters and play…a Sims game. The Sims 4, to be exact, and not just because it was a free PS Plus game last month. But…okay, mostly because of that, but for another…

Trials of Osiris Returns in Destiny 2 – Season of the Worthy

They finally did it. After what feels like an eternity of waiting, Bungie is finally bringing Trials of Osiris back to Destiny. I don’t really get why it took so incredibly long for them to implement it since it only took four months for the mode’s original iteration to show up in Destiny 1 but…

Resonance: Greenpath

Music is a vital part of any gaming experience, as vital as the characters, story, and gameplay.  For me, and assuredly so many others, a game’s soundtrack can act as an emotional link between the player and the game, making a fictional world feel so much more real and alive.  While plenty of games are…

A Few Thoughts on the Xbox Series X

With the next gen looming, and while Sony has kept things close to the chest with the PS5, earlier this week Microsoft released some new bits of information about its latest flagship console, the Xbox Series X. In an Xbox Wire post titled What You Can Expect From the Next Generation of Gaming, Phil Spencer…

Two Point Hospital Launches For All Consoles

The healthcare simulator with a comedic edge known as Two Point Hospital has finally made it to the major consoles, so now I guess there’s no excuse not to finally live out all one’s hospital administrator fantasies. Will it always be successful? Maybe not, but it will certainly always be entertaining.

Hollow Knight Was an Unforgettable Experience

Having limited money to spend on games, the two main times when my gaming library is allowed to grow is my birthday and Christmas.  And so, by the time these special dates arrive, I have a selection of games already on my wish list.  I’ve been able to largely keep up with my gaming wants…

Resonance: The Spirit Dias

I’m honestly not sure how the overall soundtrack stacks up against the rest of the Fire Emblem series since I’ve only played two other games so far. Even so, I can at least say that this is personal favorite since so many of its songs are still bouncing around in my noggin. As I mentioned…

GTA Online: Choose Your Own Adventure

On paper, Grand Theft Auto Online was a game I long found unappealing. Between its lack of story, general grind, and players’ apparent propensity for causing mayhem, it just didn’t sound like much of a good time. Well, after a couple months of playing the title (on the PlayStation 4) fairly regularly, it’s safe to…

Top 4 Worst Challenges in Spyro: Year of the Dragon

I’ve already discussed the top six worst challenges in Spyro 2, so it would only be fair if I complained a bit about the more aggravating parts of Spyro: Year of the Dragon.  Though I only have four items in this list, two of them are a doozy.  As before, I’m only counting challenges that…
