Xbox: Goodbye or Hello?

For the past several years, my household has started off each new year with the same question: Do we need a new console? Some years this has meant, do we need to replace a dying but still useful console?, such as an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. (As far as our library goes, these consoles…

Red Dead Redemption II: Second Impressions

It’s been seventy-seven days since Red Dead Redemption II was released, and one would likely gather that seventy-seven days would provide more than enough time in which to finish the game. Alas, in the case of my overly-saturated schedule between Halloween and New Year’s Day, one would be heartily wrong. That said, I am officially…

My Biggest Question Mark of 2019: Anthem

When Anthem was first announced in 2017, I immediately jumped on the “no way” bandwagon. At the time, while I continued to harbor mixed if mostly positive vibes for Mass Effect: Andromeda, I was mostly suffering from open-world fatigue. I just couldn’t see myself investing in yet another large scale and potential meandering space/adventure/combat game,…

Listmas 2018: Games I Didn’t Play This Year

Up next in our #Listmas rounds is a simple question: What games did you not play this year but wanted to? My game radar this year remained honed in on Red Dead Redemption II for most of it. But that doesn’t mean my head was in the sand otherwise. A number of awesome games presented…

Listmas 2018: The Devil in is the Details in Red Dead Redemption II

Setting aside my personal feelings about Red Dead Redemption II, the fact remains that Rockstar created a very different and very special game. While it doesn’t do everything perfectly game-wise, it contains some of the most incredible details I’ve ever encountered in a game. When small moments add up to something bigger and are able…
