I Really Don’t Like Wolfenstein: Youngblood
If you have been following my blog the past few months, you know that I have been making my way through the most recent entries in the Wolfenstein franchise. For the most part, I have been really enjoying my time through this weird dystopian series. It has its highs and lows for sure, but each … Continue reading I Really Don’t Like Wolfenstein: Youngblood
Why Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Is the Best Star Wars Property of the Disney Era
I wouldn’t say that I am a die-hard Star Wars fan, but I have seen all the films and have enjoyed each one at least to some degree. That being said, I have a lot of issues when it comes to Disney’s latest Skywalker trilogy, and even the two spinoffs weren’t perfect. Star Wars has … Continue reading Why Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Is the Best Star Wars Property of the Disney Era
In Defence of the Series S
I have to be honest when Microsoft first announced its next-gen consoles, I was very confused. Why do they keep pulling a Nintendo with naming convention and making it so ridiculous to keep all the devices straight in our heads? At least Playstation keeps things numerical. Well, after getting rid of my Xbox One back … Continue reading In Defence of the Series S
The Best Pokemon to Have on Your Team in Pokemon Legends: Arceus
Starting a new Pokemon game always brings up the question: What kind of team should I go for?

We Need to Move Past This One-Size-Fits-All Mentality with Game Design
Console wars have been a time-honored tradition going back to the second generation of consoles but made infamous by the Sega and Nintendo console race of the nineties. The battle between Mario and Sonic created allegiances to brands that bordered on the romantic. People would defend their choice in hardware to the bitter end, and … Continue reading We Need to Move Past This One-Size-Fits-All Mentality with Game Design
Dead Space is Making a Return!
Finally, after almost a decade of radio silence, EA announced that Dead Space would be making a return. At the EA Play’s Live event, all the big upcoming EA titles and updates were shown, like Battlefield and the next Apex legend, but it wasn’t until the final minutes of the presentation that things got juicy. … Continue reading Dead Space is Making a Return!
Did the Pandemic Help Microsoft?
I was always planning on waiting to get my next-gen console. It’s what I do now, as I never see a reason to be an early adopter for systems that have few games to begin with and I always have games I need to play anyway. However, this time has been different. I wanted to … Continue reading Did the Pandemic Help Microsoft?
Whatever Happened to Ape Escape?
The 90s and early aughts were filled to the brim with 3D platformers, so it can be easy to forget some of them through the years. Ape Escape is always on that list for me of forgotten platforming legends. With its array of gameplay gadgets and spunky monkeys, Ape Escape set itself apart from other … Continue reading Whatever Happened to Ape Escape?
