[WEEKEND GAMING] Steampunk JRPGs, Dangerous Jewelry, and Chatting With Friendos!

I started the week off by diving into a brand new JRPG, being Sega's soft reboot of Sakura Wars on PS4. I'm familiar with the series, having imported one of the games on the Saturn and Dreamcast, though purely for collection purposes. I played a friend's copy of the Wii game for a few hours … Continue reading [WEEKEND GAMING] Steampunk JRPGs, Dangerous Jewelry, and Chatting With Friendos!

[WEEKEND GAMING] Prehistoric Caveboys, PS5 Reveal, and Tip-toeing Around The Shadows!

Wait, why isn't this called "It's the Freakin Weekend" anymore? Well, I'll tell you. It's an R. Kelly quote from his song "Ignition" and the dude is a huge piece of shit. So here we are. Most of my free time has been split between leveling a new Half-orc Barbarian in Neverwinter with the girlfriend's … Continue reading [WEEKEND GAMING] Prehistoric Caveboys, PS5 Reveal, and Tip-toeing Around The Shadows!

It’s the Freakin Weekend! What Are You Playing?

My girlfriend and I managed to finish Maneater last night, which wasn't as fun as we were hoping. The humor was genuinely funny and the locales were unique (bravo to that since the game is underwater), but we were both super frustrated by the controls and erratic camera that seriously got in the way of … Continue reading It’s the Freakin Weekend!

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! What Are You Playing?

With SeaBed out of the way (and reviewed here *nudge nudge*), my free time has been absolutely consumed by two different JRPGs. Langrisser I & II (PS4) This remastered collection of the first two games in the strategy RPG Langrisser series (the first was released in English under the name Warsong on the Sega Genesis!) … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend!

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

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). I ended up reviewing Superbrothers, which you can read here … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! With Thanksgiving holiday travel done and dusted, it's finally time to resume my regularly scheduled weekend wrap-ups. Woo! My girlfriend and I are still working our way back through The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but we haven't had much time to play due to the aforementioned holiday stuff and getting … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I have a few reviews I'll be writing up this weekend, namely Home Sweet Home and Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk. I just published one for Disgaea 1 Complete earlier today, which felt nice. I haven't been writing a lot lately due to illness and genuinely being busy outside … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

Friday Saturday! Video games! Let's talk! I missed out on yesterday's wrap-up post due to a gnarly migraine, but I'm feeling better today and figured it was better late than never. Aside from my daily Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia log-ins, I've been slowly chipping away at Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk and putting … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I've been feeling a bit under the weather for a week or so, which explains the absence of last week's wrap-up post. I'm feeling better though so this weekend will be all about playing review catch-up. While I was dealing with headaches and whatnot, I got heavily into Dissidia Final … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! Last night I finished my playthrough and review of NIS America's dungeon crawler RPG, The Lost Child. In a nutshell, it's a solid introduction to the genre for anyone looking to get their feet wet but likely lacks the depth and challenge hardcore fans are looking for. I had a … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend, So What Are You Playing?
