Watch Dogs Legion: My biggest disappointment of 2020

One of my favorite articles I’ve written was about Rage 2 and how the two studios you would want in charge of shooting mechanics (ID software) and open world design (Avalanche Studios) being brought together, led to each studio’s vision of what the game should be to cancel each other out; WD Legion is even […]

How to talk about a game that demands going in blind using Buddy Simulator 1984 as an example

I bet you’ve seen this sentiment before: “Just go in blind; read nothing, see nothing, this is a thing that is best experienced without any foreknowledge; trust me, go in blind and you’ll like it.” I’ve done it casually and as part of reviews, but is any good? To me, it is the equivalent of […]

Outriders demo impressions

I like a good loot-based game; I liked Victor Vran, Grim of Dawn, Book of Demons, and other indie darlings of the genre, but also some of the more well-known games like the Borderlands series and Warframe. I am always on the lookout for a good loot game and Outriders seemed really promising; its made […]

An attempt to talk about Kentucky Route Zero

It’s been almost 4 months since the final installment of Kentucky Route Zero, ACT V, was released, and since I was a huge fan, I decided to replay each act again to lead me into the last one; it has been over a month since I have done that, and since then I’ve written this […]

Seven Game awards event demos that I tried

As far as award shows go, I’m not a fan, but The Game Awards are, admittedly, fun to watch; I don’t really care about the actual awards, but Geoff Keighley has managed to always put together a surprising and entertaining show with reveals and premieres. He’s also doing some great work “digitalizing” industry events with […]

Borderlands 3: How to make a better sequel frustrating

I’ve put hundreds of hours into Borderlands 2 and as I finally started my journey with the long awaited sequel, I started thinking back on it and remembering my time with it; the memorable characters and solid jokes, the interesting villain that was Handsome Jack, and the fantastic, loot-oriented gameplay loop that had me hooked, […]

The sequel to Her Story is bigger, better, and worst as a whole

Video game sequels are usually all about doing what you liked from the original bigger and better; Halo, Gears of War, Uncharted, DOOM Eternal, etc. A lot of the time this works and it is why most successful sequels are generally regarded as better games than their predecessors, but there are the exceptions to this […]

Neon Abyss is my Michael Bay of rogue-likes.

When you enjoy something very much and consider it your hobby, you usually start considering why you enjoy it, so that you can make more informed decision about how to spend your time in a more satisfying and entertaining way; I love most forms of entertainment and my time is very limited, which means I […]

A great idea stretched thin, but was there any other way?

If you read any of my articles, you would have understood that I have a lot of love for AA and indie studios. I often excuse and forgive many negatives from their offerings, because they are often overshadowed by many of their inherent positives. For a while now, I’ve been meaning to talk about a […]
