I have a Skyrim stalker

Skyrim has a lot of fun sandbox tidbits. Amongst those is the ability to invite certain adventurers along. They follow you, carry your stuff, attack your enemies, and are capable of doing a few other things depending on who they are. The only downside to this is that the game decides who is and isn’t more »

The Sacred Tears TRUE Review: The Underdog

Title: The Sacred Tears TRUE Price: $9.99 System(s): Windows Release Date: September 25, 2014 Publisher (Developer): Nyu Media (AlphaNuts) ESRB Rating: N/A, but I’d say it’s appropriate for an Everyone 10+ kind of audience. The Sacred Tears TRUE is the kind of game that tugs at my heart. It’s the underdog. September, October, and November more »

I’m pretty sure I’m a terrible Skyrim parent

Skyrim is an amazing sandbox, letting you do a number of things that don’t impact gameplay, but are hilariously fun to do. Amongst those things is adopting children. There’s not a lot you can do with the children, of course. They live in your house, call you mama or papa, and occasionally ask for money. more »

Alien: Isolation Review: Haunting

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 »

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 »
