South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Gaming Niches

At the start of the new year, I accomplished a minor feat — I finally completed the main story of South Park: The Fractured But Whole. In the immediate afterglow, I grabbed a notebook and jotted down a few thoughts on the game. There are as follows: Great story — totally absurd premise based in…

Four New Characters Announced for Soul Calibur VI

More and more details are trickling out about the newest entry in the Soul Calibur series now that the official announcement has been made. In the most recent announcement for the game, Bandai Namco revealed four more characters on the game’s initial roster and even introduced a series newcomer by the name of Grøh. He appears…

Resonance: Here We Are

Warning: This post contains spoilers for events that take place towards the end of the True Pacifist Route in Undertale…. Not so very long ago, I had the immense pleasure of playing Undertale, a game that made me feel a wide range of emotions.  I grew to deeply care about characters who had earlier tried…

Resonance: Everything Will Be Okay

Prey (2017) is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated games to release last year. There are several factors that likely contributed to that. It didn’t see that much in the way of marketing. Its beta, while quite enticing, may have revealed too much and unintentionally encouraged unreasonable expectations. The fact that this was…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #43

Greetings, friends! Thank you for joining us on this fine Friday to take a look back at our YouTube Highlights for the week. Lately we’ve been wrapping ourselves in the warm, cozy blanket of classic platformers and classic-er(?) games. They do seem like the perfect things when the weather turns chilly. So come on over…

Fable 4 is Happening…Maybe?

Last week the rumor mill churned out a new one: Microsoft, owner of the (overly)touted but beloved (by me, sometimes) franchise Fable, may have tapped Playground Games for a new entry into the RPG series. The UK-based game studio is responsible for the highly successfully Forza Horizon series of racing games. It seems that Playground…

My Time With Trico in the Last Guardian

It was thanks to a simple advertisement inside the case of Uncharted 4 that I first learned about The Last Guardian.  It was the majestic form of the massive beast called Trico that got my attention, and it was for that reason that I got the game some while later for the Christmas of 2017. …

Arriving in Morrowind By Way of Skyrim

While it would be a bit of an overstatement if I said that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was one of my favorite games, it would be completely fair to say that I caught the Skyrim bug along with everyone else in the months preceding and succeeding 11-11-2011. Like most of those players, Skyrim served…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #42

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining us today, as it’s time for some more YouTube Highlights! But before we get to all the fun (and oh, there is plenty!), we have a somber matter to discuss concerning our channel. Recently we received a number of distressingly inappropriate comments on a couple of our videos. We first…

Late to the Persona Party with Persona 3 Portable

When I randomly started played Persona 3 Portable (P3P) a couple months ago, I thought I might immediately start up another playthrough series here. Y’know, like we do. I thought I’d offer up regular updates on my progress, thoughts on the game itself, and reactions to whatever it happened to offer in the moment. But,…

Overwatch Adding New “Hero 27” Soon

It seems things are progressing quite smoothly in the development of Overwatch’s soon-to-be newest additions: the currently unnamed “Hero 27.” In an interview released last Friday, Jeff Kaplan talked at length about the Overwatch team’s hero development process. He took time to discuss how internal testing worked, how they decide when a hero is ready…
