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)”

Far Cry: New Dawn (Game Review)

Last summer, I played through all of the Far Cry games (Far Cry: Classic, 2, 3, Blood Dragon, 4, Primal, and 5) with a great appreciation and joyful experiences from most of them. Far Cry New Dawn is the first game in the series that directly follows the events of any other title, and was sort of a “surprise sequel” inContinue reading “Far Cry: New Dawn (Game Review)”

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (Game Review)

Rarely in life can we subjectively experience something that transports us into another world, allowing us to see life through the eyes of another and genuinely feel love for that individual. Movies, books, and games that attempt to do this are easy to find, but often will fail in their mission due to some lackContinue reading “Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (Game Review)”

My First 25 Platinum Trophies (Discussion 2/4)

Between the end of July and the beginning of December, I was quite the trophy hunter and had a goal of 25 Platinums by the end of the year. However, I wanted that 25th Platinum to be something I worked really hard for. Red Dead Redemption II and Hollow Knight were both prospects but some trophies were just aContinue reading “My First 25 Platinum Trophies (Discussion 2/4)”

Weekly Trophy Round-Up (1/21-1/27)

Most of my gaming-focus this week was on finishing the Pantheon of the Knight in Hollow Knight, and while I came so close numerous times, I did not get that trophy. So, I took a break and went through a few FPS’s that I’ve been meaning to play for awhile now. Here are the games I played,Continue reading “Weekly Trophy Round-Up (1/21-1/27)”

Weekly PS4 Trophy Round-Up (#1)

Dislaimer: This new series was going to be titled “Weekly Platinum” but Hollow Knight is still kicking my butt and I really didn’t want to settle and have my 25th plat be something I’m not extremely proud of. Even though the Hollow Knight Platinum is just two trophies away, I feel as though it may be someContinue reading “Weekly PS4 Trophy Round-Up (#1)”

Top 5 Friday (#1) Game Series That Deserve HD Remasters

Recently, HD Remasters of classic game series such as Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Hitman, and the first Resident Evil(s) have hit shelves to largely positive responses. Taking these hits as inspiration, I thought I’d go through some “older” (and/or less relevant) games that also deserve HD remasters. And no, I don’t simply mean “HD” ports toContinue reading “Top 5 Friday (#1) Game Series That Deserve HD Remasters”

On Balancing Entertainment Medium Intake

Over the summer, I wrote a post about the differences between movies, games, and books as far as audience involvement goes (passive vs active interactions), but today I had an idea to bounce off of that; a prequel, if you will. The whole reason I decided to switch things up and focus on gaming andContinue reading “On Balancing Entertainment Medium Intake”

Silent Night, Hollow Knight

As mentioned in my previous post, I simply had to share my thoughts on Hollow Knight in its own essay; condensing them into a paragraph would’ve been cruel thievery since there’s just so much to talk about. While I waited to post this, I am still writing it before I planned to. I wanted toContinue reading “Silent Night, Hollow Knight”
