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)”

The Witness (Game Review)

There are some games you play because you want to have pure fun (Rocket League), experience a great story (God of War), explore a vast open world (Red Dead Redemption II), or make some heads explode like watermelons (Call of Duty). Then, there are games you play that you’re not really sure why you decidedContinue reading “The Witness (Game Review)”

Week In Review (2/4-2/10/19)

As I continue mopping up my low percentage PS4 games, I’m left feeling hollow from the focus on trophies at the (usual) expense of narrative. Just today I played through a game four times hunting for trophies, and I honestly couldn’t tell you much about the story. Granted, it pretty much changes every playthrough andContinue reading “Week In Review (2/4-2/10/19)”

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)”

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”

Play the Indies (Ignore Triple-A Gaming)

(Convoluted metaphor in 3…2…1…) Fireworks are celebrated not because of their irrepressible effervescence, or representative conception of the free world, but because of their rarity; you can enjoy the bombastic declarations because you know that after the sparks soar into the sky and shatter into spectral spheres, and the delayed “pops” reach your eardrums, youContinue reading “Play the Indies (Ignore Triple-A Gaming)”

Week In Review (2019 #1)

In this new segment, I’ll be rounding up what I read/played/watched this past week, and ranking them! I call it… my Weekend Week-End Week In Review Round Up or WWEWIRRU for short. This week’s Week In Review is almost exclusively games, as I spent some holiday money on dirt-cheap Indie games via PS Store) HereContinue reading “Week In Review (2019 #1)”

Xbox Achievements vs PlayStation Trophies

From age 6 to age 21, I was an Xbox player through and through. When it was time for me to get the new console, the Xbox One was the obvious choice for me because it was the follow-up to my favorite gaming console of all time (the 360). After a few months, I tradedContinue reading “Xbox Achievements vs PlayStation Trophies”

God of War: Series Review

Since I’ve gotten many people telling me to play the new God of War game, I have finally succumbed to the peer pressure. Of course, since I’m a connoisseur of narrative storytelling, I decided to play the previous six games as well since I’ve never played any God of War games in my life. So,Continue reading “God of War: Series Review”
