Top 5: 8th Generation Disappointments

With the ongoing craziness surrounding CD Projekt Red and Cyberpunk 2077, I could help but think of all the other times I’ve been disappointed by video games. In fact, it seems every console generation has its share of disappointments. Some are downright awful. Some are just bad, and some of aren’t necessarily bad at all….

Listmas 2020: Making a Merry In-Game Christmas

Video game Christmas events come in all kinds of flavors. Some are sweet and savory, dripping in fun and Christmas cheer. Others though…others are bland and chalky, putting forth the barest effort and only marginally acknowledging that there’s something to celebrate. While there’s definitely no single recipe for a great Christmas event, I believe there…

8th Generation Memories

Even though the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are now here and the first few games are already out in the wild, the now-current generation still doesn’t feel real for me. I still see games coming out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and frankly it’s going to be hard to get one of…

Uncanny Accounts – Destiny’s Paracausal Nightmare

Hello all and welcome back to another Uncanny Account! Last week I dipped into Hollow Knight’s lore and we explored the inevitable horror of the Infection. Try as they might, there was nothing the bugs of Hallownest could do to escape their fate. It’s a pretty scary thing to think about, but what if the…

Well, Guess I’m Back on the Destiny 2 Wagon

Recently, I wrote about how I miss the days of the first Destiny and how I haven’t really been able to get into Destiny 2 despite its progress. I do still feel that way about Destiny 2. I want to get into it and enjoy the game like I did the original, but I’m still…

Exciting Things are Coming in the Destiny Universe

Earlier this week, Bungie revealed what’s coming next for Destiny 2, and it’s actually pretty interesting. I mean yeah, the gameplay additions, new locations and new loot sounds really cool, but what I’m psyched about is what’s going on with the lore!

Bungie Reveals What’s Next for Destiny 2!

Recently, I made a post talking about what were basically the glory days of Destiny as I see them. For me, Destiny’s best days have been in the past with Destiny 1. I’ve often been excited about Destiny 2 and expansions like Forsaken, but I’ve never been able to make an investment similar to that…

Looking Back at Destiny

“Nothing lasts forever” and “all good things must come to an end.” These two phrases are perhaps the most universal of all the proverbs floating around out there. Time is always progressing, and in no other context is that more apparent than in the world of video games. As we move closer and closer to…

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…

Hatmonster’s Top 10 Games of the Decade!

Well, here we are in the 2020’s. It was inevitable, but somehow I just didn’t think it was ever going to get here. Regardless, the 2010’s were a wild ride for us gamers, weren’t they? So much has happened and so many excellent games came out that it really was difficult to keep track of…
