October is the perfect month to dive into some great horror games, be it playing them yourself or watching a Let's Play from the comfort of your pillow fort. Halloween is all about the spookies, after all, and I wanted to draw attention to some of my favorite lesser-knowns in the genre to help spread … Continue reading Holiday Horrors: Detention
Back in December of 2015 -- well into the current generation of consoles -- The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel released on the PS3 and PlayStation Vita. Many folks championed the game as one of the best JRPGs on their respective consoles, but some, like myself, never got around to it until recently. … Continue reading [REVIEW] The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (PS4)

So What Are You Playing?
It's been a while since I've updated here, having fully transitioned into writing my reviews over at The Well-Red Mage last December. Mental health is a tricky mistress, though, and after taking a few months away from all of this to take care of my stupid brain and its chemical imbalance I just... lost the … Continue reading Well Hello, Strangers.
Without music, life would be a mistake. -Friedrich Nietzsche Check out my review of the Nintendo Switch version here at Wandersong (2018) [Switch] — The Well-Red Mage
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! Busy weekend for me, so I'll keep it short. Throughout the week I gave my Switch a lot of love and finished up Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (excellent), Minit (also excellent), and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP (equally excellent).
