I like the idea of the Skyrim Frostfall mod More than the reality

A while back, I wrote about doing what I called “hardcore travel” Skyrim. The idea was that I would turn off all fast traveling abilities and use the Skyrim Frostfall mod, which simulated realistic cold weather situations. If you ran around without wearing enough clothes, you’d get colder and colder until you eventually froze to more »

I Am Bread? Is this really where we’re at?

I’m not going to lie, I enjoyed the concept and the execution of Bossa Studio’s . While I’m not the biggest fan of simulator games, I think it was a great idea to make a game where your job was to save a life, and surgery is definitely a situation where you’d need precise hand/eye more »

Skyrim’s Lady of the Lake should give out a better sword

If you’re not familiar with what I’m talking about, there’s a specific pool of water in Skyrim. The pool of water is near Whiterun, easily found on the way to the Silent Moons Camp. If you go there, you will find a skeletal hand sticking out, and it will be holding a leveled, one handed more »

Google Nexus Player is another microconsole we don’t want

I like the idea of Android microconsoles. I have an Ouya that I play at least once a week, and I love its portability, the ease with which I can sideload apps, and the different gaming experiences I have on it as opposed to my PS4 and Wii U. Despite that love, I know how more »

Kingdom Hearts’ keyblade isn’t really a blade

I’m certain I’m not the only person who’s pointed this out. I’m probably not even the only person who’s pointed this out this week. Still, with Kingdom Hearts 3 on the horizon, I feel as though I must bring it up again. Because some things are important enough to state multiple times. The isn’t a more »

Glasnost This: Reagan Gorbachev is a new Ouya game

Ouya is a platform designed to let creators make any game they choose with no restrictions. It has yielded some gems, including Fist Puncher, a love letter to 80s brawlers. Team 2Bit, the minds behind Fist Puncher, have another crazy 80s throwback of a game coming. Reagan Gorbachev is a co-op stealth game set in the more »

I like that Alien: Isolation won’t let you hide

That title isn’t exactly clear. You can hide in Alien: Isolation. It’s encouraged, in fact, as it can provide a chance to evade a xenomorph that is getting smarter by the second. The thing is, The Creative Assembly and Sega crafted this game in such a way that you can’t hide away forever. I learned more »

Become a Bard is a fantastic Skyrim mod

Most of the Skyrim mods I use come from Nexus Mods, due to their amazing Mod Manager program. But, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some mods from other places that aren’t equally amazing. Case in point, one of my absolute favorite Skyrim mods comes from the Steam Workshop. It’s a mod that lets you become more »

Wednsday deserves her own Addams Family game

Here in the mystical glade, I don’t own a television. Instead, I focus all my Elven magic on ensuring a solid internet connection. That means that instead of TV shows, I watch a lot of YouTube series. Amongst my favorites are certain video game themed shows, like The Completionist, and of course, Adult Wednesday Addams, more »

DriveClub continues trend of underwhelming current gen offerings

The great irony of console launches is how long it takes our brand new machines to justify our significant investment. So many of the games we were excited about playing, the ones that would show why we need more powerful consoles, have met with delays. I have both the PS4 and Xbox One both because more »

Super Smash Bros. Diary: I can win using only Bowsers specials

With most Super Smash Bros. characters, success requires a variety of moves. You have to know when to use neutral, smash, and special attacks, as well as when to dodge, shield, or go for that Final Smash. It’s a delicate dance. You’ll only be the best if you know the right reaction to any situation. more »
