Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (Mission Platinum #1)

In this new series, I will detail the steps I took to achieve the Platinum Trophy for a certain game.

Dead Cells (Game Review)

Dead Cells takes the progression of a Metroidvania and integrates it into this procedurally generated action Roguelike that has you slowly chipping away at its steep difficulty….Just kidding. Dead Cells is a game that I’ve had my eyes on for quite a while now but haven’t picked it up because, typically, two things I don’t enjoyContinue reading “Dead Cells (Game Review)”

Best 4th Movie in a Series (Top 5 Friday)

Look, I know this is a weird topic idea but the only film that’s coming out this weekend is Endgame and I’ve already done Top 5 Marvel, Superhero, Comicbook, etc lists so let’s change it up: the best fourth movie in a series. Since Avengers 4 is here, let’s take a look at what other memorable seriesContinue reading “Best 4th Movie in a Series (Top 5 Friday)”

Avengers: Endgame (Very Vague Movie Review)

Well, my dreams came true last night. After 11 years of nearly-daily Marvel speculation, discussion, reviewing, and day-dreaming, the final chapter of the Infinity Saga is here. Since I’m not a terrible person, this review will be 100% spoiler-free which is only bad for one reason: I can’t talk about anything. Because of that, any details ofContinue reading “Avengers: Endgame (Very Vague Movie Review)”

The Story Of Your Life (Original Short Story)

Author’s Preface:  The Story of Your Life is on it’s 9th draft; beginning as a Creative Writing project my sophomore year of college, this story was nothing more than me poking fun at the rules we learned from the textbook. “A story has to be this and it has to have that but you can never do these,” et cetera. Over theContinue reading “The Story Of Your Life (Original Short Story)”

Devil May Cry (Game Series Review)

Last summer, I took on the daunting task of playing every Far Cry game that there is (aside from some ports and remakes) and write Progress Reviews; I’d do a slight pre-review, then write down my thoughts at 1, 5, 10, 15 etc hours of gameplay until completion, and end with a more polished review for eachContinue reading “Devil May Cry (Game Series Review)”

Love, Death, and Robots (Series Review)

(Spoiler-Free) Netflix recently released a new show titled Love, Death & Robots that calls itself an anthology series but really is a collection of short films with similar styles, themes, and genres (like a snack-size Black Mirror); so yeah, anthology.. All 18 shorts deal with science-fiction themes in some way, whether they fall on the spectrum of “slightlyContinue reading “Love, Death, and Robots (Series Review)”

Best Feel-Good Movies (Top 5 Friday)

This site has been fairly focused on the bombastic recently but this week, I thought we could slow things down a bit and look at the best feel-good movies. I have a list on Letterboxd simply titled Peliculas Sobre Personas to keep track of human-centric tales but I thought I’d go ahead and rank that list toContinue reading “Best Feel-Good Movies (Top 5 Friday)”

Game Journalists & Game Difficulty (Essay)

  Early this morning, I watched a YouTube video by HypeBreak titled “Sekiro Is Too Hard For Game Journalists,” under which I commented the following: I think the main problem is that the qualification for being a game journalist is mostly the ability to write. Passion for the medium is important… but proof of skill is not?Continue reading “Game Journalists & Game Difficulty (Essay)”
