Deathloop First Impressions

Fact is, I should have played Deathloop when I first picked up the game last year. It was right around the Christmas holiday, when I had a nice chunk of time off. And had I known, or rather, paid attention to what the game offered, I might have more strongly opted to play it then….

Stray – A Spoiler-Free Review

In 2020, my cat passed away after what we hope was an enjoyable nineteen years with us. We all know 2020 was a bad year; this made it personally one of the worst in recent memory. I thought I had come to terms with his loss over the past two years, but about five minutes…

This is Not a Post about Bloodborne

Let me be clear from the start – I may have played Bloodborne, but I did not play Bloodborne. Let me explain. What happened was that, a couple weekends ago, I had a moment after watching a number of Elden Ring videos in which I thought I could totally do that. I really don’t know…

Skyforge was Fine but Forgettable

In my ongoing quest to try out various free multiplayer games, I had heard of, even if only slightly, all the games on my list except one. Skyforge. Granted, I hadn’t gone out to research every MMO ever made, so maybe me being in the dark about this title was to be expected. I watched…

Ghostwire Tokyo is on its way and it seems that players are going to have a lot of choice when it comes to how they want to experience their game. As of today, Tango Gameworks has confirmed that the game will have six display modes when it launches on March 22.

Vampyr Looks Even Better (Spookier?) on PS5 and PS4 Pro Now

When it launched in 2018, Vampyr was already a decent-looking game. It wasn’t pushing the envelope of visuals, but it didn’t look bad either. If anything, its art style and visual fidelity actually served the overall feel of the game, that of hopelessness and melancholy in a completely exhausted and plague-ridden London. The game could…

I Definitely Don’t Need It, And Yet…

I like to think that I’m fairly resistant to the video game hype train these days. I’ve been in the gaming world for decades at this point, so I should have some sort of a resistance built up to it all by now. In practice though, I’m not so sure that’s true. I don’t pre-order…

A New Ratchet & Clank is Coming to the PS5

I tried to firmly tell myself that I wouldn’t be getting the PS5 for at least a year or two after its release.  Consoles are expensive, after all, and I can’t just keep…what’s that?  They’re making a new Ratchet & Clank? Dang it. Okay, so you might already be aware, but I’m a huge Ratchet…

A Few Thoughts on the PlayStation 5

Last week, Sony released an…unusual video detailing the PlayStation 5’s technical specifications. And by “unusual,” I mean plain ol’ odd and even a little unsettling, what with Lead System Architect Mark Cerny standing in a “theater” next to a stilted Powerpoint presentation. And by “detailed,” I mean d-e-t-a-i-l-e-d. The announcement dove straight into the depths…
