Cheeky Charlatans: Calypso

Even though I never played much Twisted Metal, the series’ main villain is nonetheless the epitome of cheekiness to me. Calypso has the power to literally anything, and he uses that power to put on crazy vehicular death death tournaments starring only the worst of the worst. These guys are all competing to have Calypso…

Cheeky Charlatans: Insult Bot

Picture this. It’s 25 years after humanity has been obliterated, and you emerge, somewhat bleary-eyed, from the safety of your underground vault into the West Virginia wilderness. With nothing in your possession but your C.A.M.P, a few meds, and a party hat, you spot some weapons and ammo clutched in the arms of a nearby…

Cheeky Charlatans: Swaine

I’ve actually written about Swaine before on my own blog, but when we decided on the topic of “playfully mischievous characters” for the month of April, I couldn’t help but revisit my favorite character from Ni no Kuni, the snarky thief Swaine.  Funnily enough, my original feelings for Swaine were actually far from positive because,…

Cheeky Charlatans: Crazy Redd

When first started discussing gaming’s greatest mischief makers, Redd the Fox was one of the first characters to pop into my mind. It’s not so much that he’s done anything terribly bad (that we know of), but rather his obvious shifty attitude. This is a dude who runs his business out of back alleys, tents…

Cheeky Charlatans: Sera

In Dragon Age: Inquisition’s DLC, Trespasser, provided she and your inquisitor are friends, there is a scene that defines the elven rogue Sera more than any other. Upon the two meeting on the eve of the Exalted Council – something of a United Nations, but much smaller and more religious — Sera invites the inquisitor…

Sony Closing PlayStation Store for PS3, PSP and PS Vita on July 2nd

Well, it’s finally happening. PlayStation Store services are finally being brought to an end for PSP, PS Vita and PlayStation 3. It was only a matter of time, and indeed this is something practically every knew was coming eventually, but it’s still kind of amazing. Once this hits, there are going to be a lot…

Revisiting Yooka-Laylee Four Years Later

Years ago, I wrote a review for the original Yooka-Laylee, which I had played shortly after its release. Looking back, I’m surprised at how kind I was because…my true opinion of the game was a lot harsher than what was seen in that review. I think I felt bad complaining about the game too much…

Discovery Isn’t What it Used to Be

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been really digging-into The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I’ve had good time with it, and I’ve had some not so good time with it. I’ve got plenty to say about the former, but all I’ll say about the latter is that I now fully understand why everyone who’s…
