https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmeaQEjD6f8&feature=youtu.be Early Access is so often little more than a grift, a calculated money grab intent on screwing the players over little more than a promising idea – but that has not been the case with Klei Entertainment’s previous games, and it certainly isn’t with the developer’s latest. Griftlands is an excellent roguelike deck builder... Continue Reading →
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdPKs3XdKC0 The Butcher’s Circus offers one thing I never thought to see in the Darkest Dungeon – a PvP mode! I could hardly believe it when I first saw the announcement. But curiosity won out in the end, and here I am, sharing with you my impressions – short as they are. The narrator makes...

https://youtu.be/ptYrGucGVFc In stark contrast to my semi-frequent updates on Hades' development in Early Access, I thought I'd try my hand at delving into a build guide for one of Zagreus' blade aspects, Excalibur! This one relies on two key boons by Zag's Olympian relatives -- Demeter's Crystal Beam upgrade for your Cast ability, and Athena's... Continue Reading →
Here it is, my latest gaming review/essay on Doom Eternal's design!

https://youtu.be/nLfQAKglKrA A Plague Tale: Innocence is a remarkable third-person narrative game, telling the story of Amicia and Hugo de Rune as they evade the Inquisition during the peak of the bubonic plague in France. I am IN LOVE with the characters and horrified by the world; I think, you will be, too.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAAouRT4V80 The Outer Worlds was one of the games I was most excited about in 2019 - so why did it take me this long to finish it? It's got a lot going for it - the great dialogue, the memorable characters who don't get nearly enough screen-time, and the...okay...gameplay? No, that doesn't sound right... Continue Reading →
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgDoV76A3RI I don't necessarily have the best opinion of content I've worked on in the past but I had a friend over this last Friday and I happened to show her the trailer of the recently announced Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 (it looks great, you can see it here) and she'd never heard of the...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_Lfllgq2FM Afterparty, the latest game by Oxenfree developers Night School Studio, swaps suspense for crude, crude humour, while holding onto the good old-fashioned interpersonal drama that might be familiar to you from their previous title! Does it work? You'd be surprised. Several factors help Afterparty along, foremost among which is the fact that Milo and... Continue Reading →
https://youtu.be/G-GXGOUHup0 The Outer Worlds: Edgewater Is An Excellent Intro for every fan of RPG gaming - it taps into that old RPG magic, introducing compelling characters and giving the player agency and freedom of choice! Well worth the price of a dollar/euro/pound...if you have an access to Xbox's Pass for PC service, that is.
