I'm a contributing writer who has way too many games to play and too many thoughts about them. So, I end up just playing Rocket League.

Movies Nintendo Switch

Will the Nintendo Switch Restore Nintendo Back to Its Former Glory? Nintendo finally unveiled its new hardware called the Nintendo Switch, a console/mobile hybrid device like many fans and critics were speculating. It sports a tablet-style screen with detachable controllers on both sides that can also dock into a station connected to a TV to […]

Movies Ratchet & Clank Cover Art

An interesting part of my reviews is that I often write them after the game has been released. This means that I get to see the critical and public reception as I’m playing that specific game and leverage my opinion with those viewpoints. For Ratchet & Clank, not a negative peep was made about it, […]

Movies Paragon Cover Art

Currently, there is no bigger risk than trying to enter the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) space, yet Epic Games are still forging forward with Paragon. Big leaders League of Legends, Dota 2, Smite and Heroes of the Storm make any attempt to fit into the genre a difficult task. As evidenced by failures in the past […]

Movies The Legend of Zelda Art

Over the past two or three years, I have almost unconsciously played a significant number of games in The Legend of Zelda series. In fact, I managed to play through all of the 3D games — aside from the bastardization that was The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword — and almost all of the main 2D games. […]

Movies Moon Hunters Cover Art

Moon Hunters is just on the cusp of being a great game. The concept of a cooperative, isometric hack-n-slasher where you create your own story line in a procedurally generated world sounds awesome on paper. In actuality, these ideas don’t come to fruition as much as I had hoped. A lack of meaningful content, polish […]

Movies Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 Cover Art

I thoroughly enjoyed Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare with its irresistible charm and unique, asymmetric multiplayer mode. Curiously enough, a sequel was created in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 (Garden Warfare 2) that promised a bigger and better experience, but at a higher price point. The addition of new classes, a single-player campaign and overhauled design […]

Movies XCOM 2 Cover Art

When we think of sequels to video games, we think of how they can build upon and improve their predecessor in meaningful ways. XCOM 2 fully adopts this mentality in creating a tactical turn-based experience that surpasses XCOM: Enemy Unknown in almost every way. Where XCOM 2 fails is in the overall polish of the […]

Movies Unravel Cover Art

Upon starting Unravel, a message from the developers comes across the screen. They thank me for buying Unravel and hope that I will enjoy their labor of love that is sure to bring an emotional journey my way. By the time the credits rolled, the only emotions that I had felt were frustration and boredom. It seemed […]

Movies The Witness Screen Shot

For the last week, The Witness has occupied every bit of my mind. When I’m not playing, I’m thinking about it, reading forums about theories behind the cryptic story and even having my eyes tricked in the real world by shapes that would look like puzzles in The Witness. At face value, it’s a puzzle […]
