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!

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
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! RIP October. RIPtober. 365 days until Halloween, not that I'm counting... Anyway, I guess we should kick November off properly, so what are you folks playing this weekend? It's crisp and cool here in South Carolina, which is a welcome change from the excruciating humidity we normally have. Naturally, I'll … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend!

Happy Halloween, folks! As many of you know, my gaming diet largely consists of JRPGs, point-and-click adventure games, and survival horror, so to celebrate my favorite holiday, I wanted to do a quick rundown of my top five favorite horror titles of ALL TIME. This type of list always seems easy in theory but narrowing … Continue reading My Top 5 Favorite Horror Games of ALL TIME!
Tomorrow is Halloween and, with that, the end of October as a whole. Boo hiss. I LOVE OCTOBER, DAMNIT! LET ME ENJOY THIS! Anyway, with tomorrow being the month's death knell and the fact that there are still some horror games I wanted to highlight, I figured a "grab bag" post of sorts with multiple … Continue reading Holiday Horrors: Grab Bag Time!
