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.

(To be fair, they were right on that,…

Gaming Impressions: Undertale

Believe it or not, I don’t sign on very often for the whole “indie game” experience. I see nothing wrong with them obviously, different strokes for different folks and that’s great. But take it from me, more times than not when new indie game comes out I very rarely if ever the first, second or…

Revisiting: Final Fantasy IX

   When I was younger, my mom used to take me to Blockbuster to rent something every friday. A time-honored tradition to most 90’s and even 80’s kids we would usually pick a video game. I distinctly remember finding the newest Final Fantasy at the time on the shelf and I instantly knew I had to…

Gaming Memories: Golden Sun

All things considered, there are only a handful of times where there was a game I absolutely HAD to have when I finally had the console I wanted
