Unless you have been living under a rock, you know what Minecraft is, for better or for worse. Either it’s that game that you can just mindlessly play for hours, the game you can use like digital legs, or it’s that stupid section of F.Y.E. or Walmart where children obsess over the game they waste their lives with.

Bulletstorm was a game that I hadn’t heard of back in 2011. I had visited this local gaming store and saw the box art for it and had noticed Epic Games was behind it, of which I am a huge fan of the Gears of War series. Why hadn’t I known about this game then? Well it seems the game was only going to cost me about $4, so I bought it, of course. Initially, I didn’t have my expectations too high due...[Read More]
In recent years there has been a wave of new games that are preying on the sense of nostalgia. 8-bit graphics, retro difficulty, throwbacks and references to your youth are plentiful. While the indie game scene has had some gems, there hasn’t been a game that truly captures the nostalgic feel of a bygone era. Yooka-Laylee seeks to find its place as the successor to those past games.
After spending most of this month obsessing over the latest entry into the massively loved Legend of Zelda series, I can no honestly give my thoughts about Breath of the Wild. This was the game that solidified my want of the Nintendo Switch, especially since I could take the experience wherever I happen to be.
