Far Cry 5: A Worrying Downhill Cartwheel

Oh Boy Another Ubisoft Game! I’ll admit i like FarCry. It doesn’t break any records, but it does enough well that it’s a series i can enjoy while relaxing or listening to podcasts and stuff. Of course it also has alot of strengths such as beautiful art direction, engaging villains, and multifaceted gameplay. But I’veContinue reading “Far Cry 5: A Worrying Downhill Cartwheel”

Risk of Rain 2: Bring an umbrella

Co-op was a hugely controversial feature less than a decade ago. It seemed every single game tried to emulate Halo and throw in co-op everywhere they could. I remember when games like Dead Space 3 added it in, much to everyone’s dismay. It completely killed the whole franchise due to the change from horror toContinue reading “Risk of Rain 2: Bring an umbrella”

Good Job: Another chair through the wall

In these trying times, I feel as if we need to inject some fun in our lives, whether it be through positive mediums like hiking, fishing, surfing, etc. or through less helpful mediums like binge-watching Gotham or challenging yourself to drink a 12 pack of Redbull at four in the morning. While there are goodContinue reading “Good Job: Another chair through the wall”

198X: Small town and even Smaller story

I feel as if I have the opposite of a Midas touch, as in every story based game I’ve played recently has ended up disappointing me. I was really looking forward to 198x, with its fantastic trailer and beautiful 80’s styling. I hoped it might make for a compelling, emotional drama that many people, myselfContinue reading “198X: Small town and even Smaller story”

Firewatch

I’ve been playing a lot of combat focused action games these past few weeks, and I’ve been craving something that really gets you in the feels, so I turned to a darkness, a deep force that no man can penetrate, the depths of which few have managed to come back from with their insanity intact:Continue reading “Firewatch”

Space Crew Review

One of my favorite real time strategy games on Steam, oddly enough, was a WWII bomber simulator called Bomber Crew. It was centered around logistics and planning, rather than real time dogfighting, and emphasized strategic use of abilities each crewmember had, from gunners, to radiomen, to engineers. It was all put together very well, andContinue reading “Space Crew Review”

Skirmish Line

The days of old school Flash Games are coming to an end, sadly. Long ago, places like Newgrounds, Addicting Games .com, and of course Miniclip, ruled the landscape as a free, easy way of playing different genres of games. I remember playing my first violent video game on Addicting games: the Thing-Thing. Unfortunately, those daysContinue reading “Skirmish Line”
