The Rhythm of Gaming

noun a strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement or sound. During the last few months of my reintroduction and submersion back into gaming, I have found myself without really thinking about falling into a groove, a rhythm if you will. At first, this didn’t strike it as a detail that stood out even caught my…

Toxic Toxicity

In recent years, a new trend popped up on social media like Twitter for instance:Twitch streamer, predominantly female ones, post short clips of their play sessions, proclaim that “this is the reason i don’t play [insert game here]” and start a rant about the “toxic community”.These clips all have something in common:They all show interactions…

The Grind

I don’t have many friends but if you were to ask them about me, they would tell you a handful of concrete and solid facts about me that haven’t changed in nearly 2 decades about me. I am a tinker, I like the smallest of details when it comes to the things I enjoy, and…

Relics of the Past: Shareware compilations

I wonder if anyone remembers these anymore. Back in the day (early 90s), Internet access wasn’t readily available for personal use. I still went to a local computer shop (Schadt Computertechnik, at one point the third largest PC store chain in Germany, ceased existing a few years later, in 1998) to get up to date…

History of a Transformers Fan – Part 3 (Final)

Part 2 summed up my thoughts on the Unicron Trilogy, this one will cover the remaining time from then (Transformers: Cybertron aired in 2005, though I watched it in its Galaxy Force form) to now. The next series at the time was Transformers Animated, which I really liked after getting used to the art style….

Recently Beaten: Horizon: Zero Dawn

What can go wrong if you start a fight with a robotic creature bigger than you, equipped with mainly a spear and a bow with arrows, right? So recently I got around to playing Horizon: Zero Dawn, the surprise hit by Guerrilla Games (whose previous works consisted of mainly FPS games). While I was already…

Short Report: Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap (Remake)

Since I was a big fan of the original Wonder Boy: Dragon’s Trap on the Game Gear, the announcement of the remake in 2016 instantly got me interested. After it was released in 2017, I bought it pretty much as soon as it got on Steam (June 8th). Playtime summary I started playing the game…

Where has Reso been?

Far be it from me to break the 4th wall and address myself but given how I came on to this blog claiming to have some writing chops and I haven’t written anything in well over a few months. Even I have to start asking myself “What the hell happened?!” Boy oh boy is that…

Short Report: Disgaea 1 Complete

As a long time fan of the tactical RPG series Disgaea, of course I had to get the “Complete” version of the first game when it came out 😉 After all these years, the base game definitely shows its age, especially when you compare it to the later entries into the series, though even without…

After Avengers: Endgame – What Now?

Note: Given that the movie hasn’t been out for very long yet, I’ll keep the post spoiler free as much as possible. So Avengers: Endgame has been out now for some weeks and it has certainly been a smash hit at the box office and has mostly positive ratings all around. Does it warrant the…
