Minecraft Is More Fun In Multiplayer

I’m a somewhat anti-social gamer. I don’t really enjoy multi-player games like Team Fortress 2 or any of the Call of Duty varieties. I tend to shy away from MMOs, because I feel as though having to involve other people in my gaming tends to degrade the experience. After all, you can’t reasonably expect human more »

Deciding between Alien: Isolation and Evil Within

October is brutal on gamers. Traditionally, October and November are the busiest months, as every company wants to have their game out in time for the holiday shopping season. Which means people often find themselves torn between two games, like Alien: Isolation and The Evil Within. In this particular circumstance, both games came to next more »

20 Years Later: Final Fantasy VI

Monday, October 20 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the US release of Final Fantasy VI (rebranded as ) for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. I’m going to go ahead and say it. I regard Final Fantasy VI as my favorite game of all time. The reasons are numerous. The characters, the themes, the setting, more »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Skylanders Trap Team has the best characters

Skylanders is one of those series that constantly amazes. Not because of the sales figures or that each year Activision manages to put out a new iteraction, like Skylanders Trap Team, that looks too good to resist. No, the real reason it’s so impressive is that each round of Skylanders manages to be better than more »
