I try to do one update a month but both my computers have been down the last few weeks and I just got my desktop up and running again. I had a couple reviews planned but they turned out not to really have much to review. I’m going to start playing a couple new gamesContinue reading “August Update Delayed”

The Sinking City: Investigate the Horrors beneath Oakmont
The Sinking City is a game I had been dying to play for a while now and, though it’s not perfect, it was tons of fun. The variety of monsters is a bit lacking (there’s only really four types that you encounter over and over again), but this is one of the few games thatContinue reading “The Sinking City: Investigate the Horrors beneath Oakmont”
Control: Warp Reality and take back Control
I had heard of this game and was interested in playing it, though I didn’t know much about it. You play as a young woman named Jessie who has gone to the Bureau of Control, a government agency that investigates paranormal items and events, to find out information about her missing brother. Once inside theContinue reading “Control: Warp Reality and take back Control”
Life is Strange 2: Storytelling or just Virtue Signaling
Let’s make one thing clear, despite it’s wokeness, I liked Life is Strange, Season 1. The characters were interesting and three dimensional, no one was a stereotype, everyone had reasons behind their attitudes and their actions. The plot was creepy and compelling, each episode left you wanting more. Season 2 on the other hand, is,Continue reading “Life is Strange 2: Storytelling or just Virtue Signaling”
Borderlands 3: The Ultimate Looter-Shooter has Returned!
Despite what you may think given my previous entries, I am not a huge fan of shooters. Something must really grab me about a shooter to make me want to play it. I have been a fan of Borderlands since the original. The combination of colorful characters, sarcastic humor, and non-stop action really got toContinue reading “Borderlands 3: The Ultimate Looter-Shooter has Returned!”
Far Cry 5: Redneck Preppers fight Doomsday Cultists!
I hadn’t played much of the Far Cry series before this but I had been told that this game pissed off a lot of “woke” progressives for its portrayal of rednecks as “being normal people who weren’t all racists” so of course I had to give it a try! Sexuality: 1 out of 5. SexualityContinue reading “Far Cry 5: Redneck Preppers fight Doomsday Cultists!”
A Plague Tale, Innocence:Teenagers vs the Inquisition. Also rats.
I’ve known about this game for a bit but it wasn’t until watching Razorfist’s twitch play that made me want to try it out. It’s the story of a young French girl named Amicia who is trying to get her young brother, Hugo, to safety through the plagued lands of France, being chased byContinue reading “A Plague Tale, Innocence:Teenagers vs the Inquisition. Also rats.”
Greedfall: How Diversity Should be Done!
Greedfall is a game by Spiders that I had heard about a few times and was interested in trying out. The game is set in the exploration era of a world that’s not quite ours, but close. It looks like ours and has a lot of the same traits but is, of course, different. TheContinue reading “Greedfall: How Diversity Should be Done!”
Vampyr: Balancing Morals in 1917 London
Warning: This review contains minor spoilers of some side quests. Vampyr is a game by DONTNOD, the creators of Life is Strange and Remember Me, where you play as, of course, a vampire in 1917 London during the Spanish Flu epidemic. You play a surgeon named Jonathon Reid who wakes up in a massContinue reading “Vampyr: Balancing Morals in 1917 London”
The Outer Worlds: Fallout in SPAAAACE
Warning: This review contains minor spoilers for several side quests. I’ve been looking forward to Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds since I learned about it earlier this year. I’m a huge fan of the classics Fallout 1 and 2 and I loved what Obsidian did with Fallout New Vegas. While I’m sad to see howContinue reading “The Outer Worlds: Fallout in SPAAAACE”
