Resonance: Secunda

For no terribly good reason, I recently took a new trip through The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I played through the game only once when it was new(ish), and at the time, the experience didn’t leave much of a lasting impact. I couldn’t say what exactly brought on the inkling to pick up the game…

Observer: A Cyberpunk Experience from Bloober Team

The makers of “Layers of Fear” have announced a new game recently. The project is known as “Observer” and appears to be a horror game set in a cyberpunk style future. It looks promising, but question is whether or not Bloober Team has learned from past mistakes and criticisms.

A KH3 Release Date, Toy Story, and More

I’ve long since lost track of the number of years we’ve been waiting to hear this news.  But it’s finally confirmed…Kingdom Hearts 3 is indeed something that’s going to happen in our lifetimes!  It was announced at Disney’s D23 convention that this greatly anticipated game is scheduled for release in 2018.  When in 2018, I…

Pyre and Buying Based on Developer

Most of the time, buying a game based solely on who’s developing it is good way to set oneself up for disappointment. Heck, in this modern world of video game advertising it can be a bad idea to buy based off a demo (I’m looking at you vanilla Destiny).  There is still a short list…

Age Doesn’t Make a Game Dated

It was thanks to Cary’s recent post, Playing Games Past Their Prime, that I had a revelation concerning a few questions I had been asking as of late.  It largely boils down to: why do some old games feel dated, while others from the same era do not?  Furthermore, how is it that even new…

The Road Better Left Untaken

I love Crash but playing through the Crash Bandicoot N’ Sane Trilogy reminded me of just how infuriating the original game could be. It requires much greater levels of precision and endurance than its successors, and there no level that typifies this more than “The High Road’. I truly, absolutely, wholeheartedly, and unabashedly hate “The…

Sony announces new PS4 Pro bundle. Get hype?

It features a one terabyte white console, a matching white controller, a hard copy of the game, and a digital voucher for the expansion pass and extra DLC.

The service is currently in closed beta until July 24th, but once it launches it will offer users unlimited ad-free access to a…

Persona 5 and Rivers in the Desert

I know that I’m about three months late in saying this, but I gotta say it anyway: Persona 5 is excellent! I’d never played a Persona game before this one, so I went into it not really knowing what to expect. What I got was a game with a familiar-yet-new combat system, characters that I…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #17

Hello, everyone! It’s been quite a week, eh? Maybe you enjoyed a little extra time off thanks to the 4th of July holiday. Or maybe you slogged through the week knowing that there was surely a light — a great weekend — at the end of the tunnel. Either way, we’re glad that you stopped…
