Chicory review

I see a blank door and I want to paint it pink When I played Wandersong in 2018, I was not expecting it to hit me as hard as it did. Emotionally it was a beautiful and meaningful tale, but it was one of those games that refused to limit its ambitions. Despite its emotional […]

Steam Nextfest 2021 Demo impressions

Another Game Fest, another endless stream of demos on both Xbox and Steam. Steam even gave their event a separate name this year, and hosted close to 700 demos; compared to Xbox, Steam did a good job at discoverability, but with the quantity of demos (and probable quality) I am bound to have missed a […]

Summer Game Fest Demos 2021 Xbox Demos

Another Game Fest, another endless stream of demos on both Xbox and Steam. Here is a list of the demos I played and what I thought of them. These were the ones I thought were the most interesting (for me) from Xbox’s list; their discoverability was not as good this year, so I probably missed […]

Why am I still playing Biomutant?

Besides the fact that I am weird. This is it. I am finally a GamerTM. There are so many games coming out, tons more being announced during the E3 period, and a heck of a lot more games/announcements coming later this year; yet I am playing a game that I am kind of enjoying and […]

Before Your Eyes game review

There is this line that keeps bouncing around the gaming communities – a line I often use myself, because a lot of the time it is true. “Gameplay is king”. You often see this line in reference to games with a bad story; yeah the story sucks, but the gameplay is great, so who cares? […]

Cozy grove game review

An alternative to Animal Crossing, where every difference is both for the best and for the worst. Animal Crossing was one of the franchises I desperately wanted to get into, after I fell in love with Stardew Valley; they are not that similar games, but it was a Nintendo franchise that had similar goals, and […]

The 1 to 5 on games: Rain on your parade

This format is a shorter, more to the point, off-shot of the normal review/op-eds I normally do. A ranking will be given at the end from a scale that starts at (from the lowest to the highest): Bad – meh – fine – good – great. Anything not appropriate for these “scores” will likely warrant […]

Ubisoft free to play plans

It’s been a few days since Ubisoft announced its intentions to forego the 3-4 AAA games per year model, in favor of FTP titles that will have longer life spans alongside their AAA stuff; as with everything, the community seems to have some “hot takes” on the matter. In this case, surprisingly, I am no […]

Trying to find the way to enjoy Outriders

Outriders is just one of those releases that just splits people and produces varying opinions; searching for the game online, you’re just as likely to find a scathing breakdown of all the game’s failures, and a praising critique of all the things it got right. Nothing exemplifies this more than the launch period, where the […]
