Bidding Adieu to The Witcher 3

Upon last leaving The Witcher 3, Geralt and his crew (and me) had just recovered from an intense battle at Kaer Morhen, one which was brought to an end in an awful and unexpected explosion of magic brought on by none other than Ciri.  As terrifying as that was for everyone, it was not enough…

Outer Wilds: Groundhog Day Meets Outer Space

Outer Wilds is one of those video game masterpieces that most people have probably never even heard of.  To give you a little bit of background, this game is like an open-world mystery that takes place in outer space.  You explore a small, but complex, solar system, and your goal is to basically play the…

Cheeky Charlatans: Daxter

It seems to be a common theme that a lot of these “foolish” characters tend to not make the best first impression.  Take Daxter, for example.  Sure, you might remember him now as a goofy and likable character in Jak 2 and Jak 3, but when I first encountered him in the very first game…

Cheeky Charlatans: Claptrap

In terms of classic jokers (the ones who aren’t among Batman’s archenemies), a favorite has long been the characters who put up brave, happy faces in order to hide their inner cowardice. Yes, they love nothing more than to make light of a situation, making fun of anyone within their sphere of influences, which can…

Cheeky Charlatans: Sans

By now, I doubt anyone hasn’t heard of the incredibly popular indie game Undertale.  One of the most notable aspects of the game is the ability to complete it without killing a single enemy.  While you also have the option to do the complete opposite (AKA the Genocide Route), I don’t think I’d ever have…

Cheeky Charlatans: Sheogorath

My first meeting with Elder Scrolls’ “mad god” Sheogorath occurred in The Elder Scrolls Online. Upon innocently agreeing to retrieve a handful of magical books for the Mages Guild and discovering that there was more to said book than met the eye, my travels eventually landed me in Sheogorath’s lair on the Shivering Isles. Little…
