The 1 to 5 on games: Genesis Noir

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pendragon impressions

Although theoretically I’ve beaten Pendragon twice, I’ve barely scratched the surface of what the game has to offer, yet it is so distinctly clear what the game is, who it is aimed at, and what it does well (and what it doesn’t do as well), that I decided to write something about it and call […]

Signs of the Sojourner, The Ambassador: Fractured Timelines, Midnight Scenes, Frog Detective 2, Tales from Off-Peak City Vol.1. Since the beginning of 2021, I seemed to have stumbled upon a schedule by accident; there is one article for both movies and games every Friday.
