Another Friday in self-isolation, yeah? What's on your plate this weekend? For me... SeaBed (Switch) This immaculately-written visual novel has become my current obsession. It focuses on the life of a woman experiencing hallucinations of her former lover, who mysteriously disappeared during a vacation overseas. The story is told nonchronologically, so it's a treat piecing … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! What Are You Playing?
Barring a handful of games, I was admittedly distant from the Nintendo 3DS library -- even more so once the Switch released. Even as a fan of JRPGs, the handheld's bread and butter, I barely paid attention to it since I was already buried under the backlog of my PlayStation Vita. So it goes without … Continue reading [REVIEW] The Alliance Alive HD Remastered
With all of the coronavirus stuff going on, it's safe to say this weekend will be spent self-isolated and playing lots of Ye Olde Video Games. Well, not old video games. I just finished up Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout for the Nintendo Switch and had a blast with it. It was … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What Are You Playing?
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! For starters, I finished L.A. Noire! Woo! It's the first Rockstar game I've finished since The Warriors released on PS2 way back when. Usually, their games don't jive with me for whatever reason, but I got sucked into the seedy underbelly of crime and politics with this one. Even all … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What Are You Playing?
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I was out of town last Friday, but I'm oddly available this Thanksgiving weekend. Funny how things work out like that. My plan was actually to make another long road trip to Maryland and spend the holiday with my grandmother and uncle, but my mom is sick so my girlfriend … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What Are You Playing?
Friday... er, Saturday? Video games? Let's talk? I didn't get a chance to put this together yesterday, but we're only a few hours into Saturday so it still counts. Hah! Since I subscribed to Game Pass I've really only been playing my Xbox. I gave up on both Mutant Year Zero and We Happy Few … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What Are You Playing?
During their college graduation party, two long-time friends Milo and Lola notice something is... off. They're dead. And after being swept away into the fiery depths of hell, they discover that the only way out is to out-party the devil himself. Awesome. Night School Studio struck gold in January of 2016 when they released their … Continue reading Let’s Talk About ‘Afterparty’
When it comes to describing horror games, the term "Lovecraftian" gets thrown around whenever it's time to talk about gross monsters, loss of sanity, and a general fear of the unknown. I mean, H.P. Lovecraft's name is synonymous with horror (and racism and xenophobia) and plenty of writers are inspired by his earlier works, but … Continue reading Let’s Talk About ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game’
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! What do you do when your backlog is daunting and you have plenty of things you SHOULD be finishing up? You subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, I guess. I haven't really used my Xbox One much this year, to which I blame the sheer lack of JRPGs, but I … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What Are You Playing?
Horror-themed RPGs are too few and far between for my liking, especially when it comes to home consoles, but last year the developers behind Life is Strange delivered a bloody brilliant original I.P. in Vampyr that I really didn't appreciate my first time around. A few weeks ago I started rewatching Buffy the Vampire Slayer … Continue reading [REVIEW] Vampyr
