It's been a good while since I've written anything about video games, hasn't it? Here they are, then, my thoughts on the first episode of the 12-15 hour-long first paid DLC for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey! Some Spoilers for Hunted from this point onwards. Makedonia, one of the fourty or so regions in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey,... Continue Reading →
Hullo, everyone! For today, I don't have a book post for you all -- forgive me, I have failed the sacred bond of trust between us. I did, however, make a video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyIzAN3hGyQ It's about Darkness, and Dungeons, and the Darkest one among them!
Hullo, everyone, and welcome back to the recurring topic of this blog nowadays, which is indeed nothing less than the much-loved aphorism, #EverythingIsContent. This one is in video form! But if you've got preference for reading, after the embedded link, I'll also drop my script -- which is most of the vid but not all... Continue Reading →
What happens when you put EA in charge of a first-rate storyteller the likes of Bioware?! A recipe for...a surprisingly fun if riddled with tech issues game. Can't wait to find out how the microtransactions screw this one!

Nothing like a big-ass jRPG to strike a vein of inspiration, and so here I am, working on this brand new series of impressions, thoughts, and the occasional criticisms (if I find something I'm unhappy with). Octopath Traveler begins with... Continue Reading →

Another year, another set of E3 press conferences with all those entail - cringe-worthy moments, EA sports segments making you seriously reconsider a membership amongst the living on this wonderful blue orb of ours and, occasionally, games which look just promising enough they might be worth putting a mortgage on my house....

I played six hours of God of War with two of my closest friends, and I can't stop thinking about it. It's rare that I'll find a game lingering on my mind after I've put it down. Such games more often are those "just one more turn/game" strategy experiences, which can suck your life away... Continue Reading →
Hello and welcome back to my Dungeon Master's Diary, where I recollect the long and winded tale of my Dungeons&Dragons party, the Assholes. Some time has passed since I last posted about these venerable adventurers. Let's get straight to it! The problem with note-keeping is...sometimes you lose the notes.

Beginning a D&D campaign is a daunting experience, especially when your entire experience role-playing is in a few Pathfinder games. Dungeons&Dragons' latest edition is by no means an overly complex game. Most of the rules are explained in a clear, forthright way, and both the Player's Handbook(PHB) and Dungeon Master's Guide(DMG) are excellent books, introducing... Continue Reading →
