Tossing an Hour to My Witcher

I was one of those who didn’t really pay The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt all that much attention when it first release in 2015. I initially wrote it off as yet another open-world game suffering from the same lack of depth as every other open world game at the time (and arguably since), but my…

Cary’s Top 10 Games of the Decade!

If you’ve not caught on already, this week at Virtual Bastion, we’ve been taking a look back at our favorite games of the 2010s (click here for Hatm0nster‘s and The Duck‘s picks), and we hope you’ve enjoyed our lists so far. The time has now come for me to produce my own inventory of favorite…

Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is Coming to the Switch

The most recent installment of the Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel series will be heading to the Switch sometime this spring, so I guess now’s the time to catch up if you’re keen to jump into this ongoing story. It seems Switch-owners will be getting a healthy helping of extra cosmetics too, though…

The Duck’s Top 10 Games of the Decade!

The last decade has seen the release of some pretty awesome games spanning indie titles, remakes of classic PS1 games, Nintendo’s comeback with the release of the Switch, and everything in between.  It’s now the Duck’s turn to honor my top ten games of the decade (not including remakes because that doesn’t quite seem fair). …

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…

Putting Yourself in the Game, or Not…or Never

Joining with masses, I recently took advantage of PlayStation’s holiday sale in picking up Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition. Outside of the online extras, it was a good deal, and it would finally allow my husband and I to play side-by-side in Los Santos. (Which we’ve been doing, hoo boy, it is ever…

Persona 5 Scramble's Opening Movie is Pretty Stylin'

It may still be a year away, but I’m actually kinda psyched for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. It’s not so much because I’m dying for yet another Dynasty Warriors-style beat-em-up game, but rather another helping of the world of Persona 5. I’m told this game takes place after the events of Persona 5…

Resonance: Astral Observatory

Out of all the games I’ve played, no game connects with me emotionally quite like Majora’s Mask.  My first exposure to the game was the short-lived playthrough Mother Duck started on our brand new Nintendo 64.  She only completed the beginning of the game, up until you get your ocarina back from Skull Kid.  Intimidated…
