The First Tree is Something Truly Special

The First Tree is an interesting sort of game that I have to approach a bit differently than I would my usual game reviews.  The big difference here is…The First Tree is not really a video game.  It is, but it’s not.  It’s more like an interactive story than anything else.  So if it’s a…

Playing as a Two-Year Old in Among the Sleep

Going into Among the Sleep, I had no idea what to expect.  In fact, I was not even aware the game existed until I was searching for the release date for Little Nightmares 2.  Though my search was in vain, I was recommended several horror games, the most intriguing being Among the Sleep, which I…

Inmost Is As Beautiful As It Is Eerie

I first became aware of Inmost thanks to a trailer on YouTube.  I don’t recall even finishing the trailer because the first few moments had already piqued my interest.  The game’s surprisingly beautiful pixel art style and eerie atmosphere was what hooked me.  Oftentimes, it is unwise to judge a game based solely on such…

Uncanny Accounts: Undertale’s True Lab

One of my favorite games of all time is home to some surprisingly dark lore, including a mystery that remains unsolved to this very day.  I am talking about Undertale, folks, specifically the True Lab (which I talked about in this here Resonance post).  I would like to warn you about spoilers for the game’s…

Singing with Animals in Fe

Despite my stubborn love of physical games over digital, I have started to amass a small collection of digital games on the Switch (“amass” meaning about five games, which accounts for about 50% of my entire Switch collection, so…it’s all relative, I suppose).  This all started when I was perusing the Switch eShop out of…

Ranking Cuphead Bosses: Easiest to Hardest

Since Cuphead‘s release in 2017, the game has become known for two major things, its 1930’s art style and high difficulty.  Now that I, too, have suffered through the many challenging bosses of Cuphead, I thought it would be fun to rank all 19 from easiest to the ones that walloped me the most thoroughly. …

Cuphead: A Swell Time

When Cuphead was originally released in 2017, people just wouldn’t stop talking about it.  And based on the screenshots I had seen, the game looked cool enough with its 1930’s style graphics.  Nevertheless, I was never actually tempted to try it myself, but rather decided to watch a playthrough of the game on YouTube.  And…

Resonance: Greenpath

Music is a vital part of any gaming experience, as vital as the characters, story, and gameplay.  For me, and assuredly so many others, a game’s soundtrack can act as an emotional link between the player and the game, making a fictional world feel so much more real and alive.  While plenty of games are…

Hollow Knight Was an Unforgettable Experience

Having limited money to spend on games, the two main times when my gaming library is allowed to grow is my birthday and Christmas.  And so, by the time these special dates arrive, I have a selection of games already on my wish list.  I’ve been able to largely keep up with my gaming wants…
