Choosing My Own Adventure in Fallout 76

When I last wrote about Fallout 76 in November, I had given an “eh, so what?” to its newest mode, Fallout Worlds. Since then, I’ve only been back to Worlds (Private Worlds) once, cajoling my husband to formulate our own world and give it a go. That go lasted a single session, and we’ve not…

Ghostwire Tokyo Will Have 6 Different Graphical Modes

Ghostwire Tokyo is on its way and it seems that players are going to have a lot of choice when it comes to how they want to experience their game. As of today, Tango Gameworks has confirmed that the game will have six display modes when it launches on March 22.

Resonance – Pieces of the Past by way of the Phenandra Drifts

Though my gaming plate is pretty full, I recently decided to add in a heap of Fallout 3. I’m specifically after its DLC, and namely the one titled “Into the Pitt.” Why that one in particular? Because some time this year, Fallout 76’s newest expansion, The Pitt, is supposed to be released. It’s supposed to…

New Gameplay Shown for Ghostwire Tokyo

For those fortunate enough to have procured a PS5, there’s a really interesting new game coming out really soon called Ghostwire: Tokyo. It’s actually from the same studio that brought us the Evil Within series, and it even started development as The Evil Within 3, but it apparently took on a life of its own…

Resonance: Secunda [Revisited]

Despite all the games that I simply must finish (ahem *Metroid Dread* ahem), I’ve found myself back in the world of Skyrim. It’s a game that just calls, usually in moments of gaming stress (ahem *Metroid Dread* ahem), as something of a remedy. Indeed, it is, and it’s excellent soundtrack goes a long way in…

Listmas 2021: A Mascot for Your Thoughts?

In games, as in life, a picture can tell a thousand words. Sometimes, all one needs is merely the sight of a favorite character to know something great from their favorite company is on the horizon, if it isn’t already there. These character representations – these mascots – might seem frivolous, but they serve as…

Fallout Worlds is Fallout 76’s Rose-Tinted Glasses Mode

A couple months ago, when I opted into Fallout 1st, Fallout 76’s subscription service, its custom world-building mode call Fallout Worlds was on the verge of release. It was not why I subbed; I only wanted to try out the game privately with an actual “lone wanderer.” In this regard, my current replay is moving…

Spooptober: The Pumpkin House

Out in the corner of Fallout 76’s West Virginia map, right on a small stretch of Highway 66, is a most unusual sight. Well, could be that it’s not all that unusual for this time of year, but considering that it’s a year-round “attraction” in the game, it stands out a bit more than most….

Fallout 76: Year Two in Review

When this past August rolled around, I considered writing and update to my ESO/Fallout 76 from the same time last year. Only then, I remembered that I barely touched ESO over the past twelve months. I found far more comfort in Fallout 76, which sounds strange, because the game is far from comfortable. Looking back,…

Re-Opening the Gates of Oblivion

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is one of the most beloved of Bethesda games, so much so that many fans still celebrate it to this very day. I can’t count how many YouTube videos I’ve seen which sing the game’s praises; some even go so far as to say it’s superior to Skyrim! As someone who played…
