Dreaming Up: A Great 007 Game

In this edition of Dreaming Up, the new series I just created when I typed it into the title, we’re going to look at 007 video games and how a great Bond game would look today. GoldenEye 007 is largely considered not only the best first person shooter of the Nintendo 64 era, but also one ofContinue reading “Dreaming Up: A Great 007 Game”

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)”

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)”

Week In Review (Week 4, 1/20-1/27)

I’ve decided to make a slight change to this Week-In Review series by simply adding “favorite songs of the week” to it. This way, even if I work on the same book all week or play the same game without finishing either, I’ll still have something to write down and share with you. Therefore, thisContinue reading “Week In Review (Week 4, 1/20-1/27)”

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”

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)”

My 2018 In Review

2018 was a great year for me: I graduated from college, moved across the States, and expanded my entertainment horizons. Instead of just focusing on movies, I decided to divert much of my attention towards shows, games, music, and books as well, which have really made an impact on my life as a whole. IContinue reading “My 2018 In Review”

Dear Parents of Video-Gaming Kids

Around 2011, I made a PowerPoint presentation for my parents as a persuasive method to get them to understand why video games were awesome, and why they were so much more than what they remember them being. Video games have, historically, been simply a pastime; a “waste of time,” even. From Pong to Donkey Kong, video games were enjoyableContinue reading “Dear Parents of Video-Gaming Kids”
