Ty the Tasmanian Tiger: Another Platformer from a Bygone Era

There was something truly special about the platformers released during the late 90’s and early 2000’s.  Banjo-Kazooie, Jak and Daxter, and Sly Cooper were just a few series that were absolutely spectacular, but which, unfortunately, didn’t really survive beyond that golden age of platforming goodness.  Considering my love for these types of games, a friend…

The Sims 4: Saying Goodbye

This is the final post about my experience playing The Sims 4 for the first time. For previous posts in the series, see here (part 1), here (part 2), here (part 3), and here (part 4). Upon venturing into Peeps’ senior years in The Sims 4, one of the first things I did was to…

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…

Why Games Made From Movies Make Me Sad

Is it just me, or are video games made from movies and books usually not very good? I don’t know, maybe I just pick bad games, but I have learned over the years to never play a game based off of something else, and I have since placed nearly every game I own from this…
