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…

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…

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…

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…

Sony, what are you doing?

So when I read the news about the details that Sony released about the upcoming PlayStation 5, I was a bit pleasantly surprised that my expectations of the coming hardware upgrade to that next generation seemed to be surpassed. Little did I know in that moment that something else was making the rounds about Sony…

Roadtrip!: Final Fantasy XV! (5ish hours in)

 Let me preface this entire piece with an acknowledgment that many people who have come to hate this game do so because of Squares implementation of DLC, and the numerous patches with bits and pieces of content thrown in. Yes, A game should release in a 100% percent finished state. Yes, DLC should not stand…

PSN Name Change – what’s the point?

So today Sony has announced that users can finaly change their PSN online IDs (might not be available in your region just yet, but they are in the process of rolling it out). But just like in the beta announcements, significant caveats remain. Only PS4 games published after April 1, 2018 even officially support the…

Short Report: Edna & Harvey – The Breakout

So after several years of having this game “incomplete” (got to somewhere around one third of the game), last weekend I FINALLY completed it. And boy is this game a trip especially towards the end. On the cover, the game looks innocent enough, with its cartoony artstyle, the funnily written characters and the main character…

Google Stadia – Some Thoughts

So last week Google announced their new gaming platform “Stadia”. Basically it is a game streaming service that allows you to play games on all devices with a Chrome Browser. For the few details they have announced you can go here. “A platform for everyone” Well how do I put it… I don’t believe that…
