Until here recently, I had never played through any of the Dead Space games. Almost immediately after finishing Dead Space 2, the news comes out that Visceral Games had been closed down. Even at that moment, as a new fan of this phenomenal (well, mostly) franchise I was crushed at the thought that this series probably wasn’t coming back anytime soon.

The Sega Dreamcast, although it was a flop, did have so many bright moments. Say what you want, but that is where Sonic games truly shined in my opinion. Yes, they are dated and at times ridiculous, but Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 are both classics in my book. Part of this is because of how wonderful the music was; whether it was from the opening hooks of Open Your Heart, to the greatest opening lev...[Read More]
‘Tis the season for gifts! Many companies are starting their pre-Black Friday sales, gearing up for Black Friday, or even just annual Winter Sales. Ubisoft wanted to jump into the Holiday spirit early and strong. While they could have done a game giveaway, or a holiday event, Ubisoft wanted to up the ante.
Despite my loathing for it starting the shitstorm that is loot boxes, I have rather enjoyed spending evenings just playing Overwatch with my buddies. Since Sombra, every time a new hero comes out I find myself pulled right back into that game. I can’t really call myself a fan of the game, but damn if its not fun socially! Moira is the next hero to join the roster, bringing a mix of sorcery a...[Read More]
After releasing three successful games, the studio that most recently brought us Hob is shutting its doors. This makes the second gaming studio to close its doors recently, as Visceral Games was also recently closed by EA. What was left behind though was not only a handful of amazing games that will live on in gaming history, but a bond was formed between those people. Runic Games called it a fami...[Read More]
