Day 20: Favorite Video Game Genre

Okay, so we’re two-thirds of the way through the 30 days’ worth of video game posts.  And I still haven’t found a more eloquent way of describing that.  Anyway, we’ve got another “what’s your favorite something-or-other” topic to discuss, my favorite game genre.  As usual, I find this to be a pretty difficult question indeed…

Feeling Cautiously Optimistic for The Division 2

When I bought the original Tom Clancy’s The Division at launch back in 2016, I thought I was going to get something to fill the Destiny-shaped hole in my gamer’s heart. I got that, but only for a couple of hours. It really didn’t take long to discover that The Division was a very hollow…

Artyom’s Nightmare Trailer Really Puts Him Through the Ringer

Okay, so this trailer is about a week old,  but I still wanted to point it out a bit. Even as someone who hasn’t played much of the previous entries in the series, I’m actually looking forward to Metro: Exodus. I might not get it right away, but am still looking forward to it. And…

Resonance: Galeem

I know I’ve been talking a heck of a lot about Super Smash Bros Ultimate lately, but darn it, it’s a great game!  I’ve already written posts about the characters, unforgettable moments in World of Light, and I’ve reviewed Ultimate as well as I possibly could, considering it’s such a massive game.  But one thing…

Kingdom Hearts’ Story is a Mess, and That’s Just Fine

Kingdom Hearts 3 is finally here and I absolutely cannot wait to play it. I was a bit hesitant to jump back into the series after years of side-stories and spin-offs turned the plot into an intimidating monstrosity, but I’ve been thinking about it and I’m actually okay with not knowing exactly what’s going on….

A Tribute to a Tribute – Mortal Kombat: The Album

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the release of one of my favorite game-inspired soundtracks – Mortal Kombat: The Album. This techno romp through the mid-90s world of this now-classic fighting game isn’t for everyone, but it’s lovingly feisty and novel enough for me. My tribute to it here first appeared on Geek Force…

Crackdown 3 Is Out Later This Month…Wow.

Crackdown 3 is out later this month, and…it’s kind of weird saying that. Games suddenly emerging from the bowels of development purgatory are nothing new, but after so many delays and so deadlines broken, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who thought the game would eventually wind up being vaporware. Obviously, I was wrong.
