In my last post (it’s been a while), I wrote a glowing recommendation for Persona 5. With its bold, stylish design, deep combat system, and living, breathing interactive world, it has captured my heart and put itself on my list of best games of 2017. While I do love Persona 5, no game is perfect. … More Cut the Crap: Game Length and the Modern Gamer
Holy smokes, Persona 5 is out of this world. To be fully transparent, I’m 70 hours into this masterpiece and have yet to finish. Although I’m only about two-thirds of the way through (I’ve heard many have finished around the 110 hour mark), I can confidently recommend this game to anyone looking for a unique, deep, and unabashedly creative JRPG. Frankly, I haven’t been this obsessed with a game since Witcher 3, and I doubt any other game released this year will top it. Simply put, it’s divine. … More Recommended: Persona 5
Oh E3 press events. We wait all year for you to come, and in the blink of an eye, you’re gone. Some years you overload us with excitement, and others you leave us utterly disappointed. Unfortunately, E3 2017 falls closer to the latter. Although there were some exciting announcements (Beyond Good and Evil 2!) and details revealed on anticipated games, there wasn’t too much to jump for joy about. … More E3 2017 Press Events: The Good, The Bad, and The Disappointing
Because of the recent hype surrounding Tekken 7 and Injustice 2, I’ve been thinking about the fighting games I’ve played throughout my life and which have left a lasting impression on me. Moreover, I’ve been reminiscing on the ones I particularly enjoyed that didn’t get as much praise as they should have. These are the games that have been overshadowed by the Street Fighters, Mortal Kombats, and Soul Calibers of the world. These are the most underrated fighting games of all time. … More 5 Most Underrated Fighting Games Ever Made
The other day, I was enjoying an Overwatch session where I was laying the smackdown with McCree. Right as I was fanning the hammer in some poor Genji’s face, it occurred to me that the last Western-themed video game I played was Red Dead Redemption… SEVEN YEARS AGO. … More Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?
When I think of great multiplayer experiences, most of the games that pop in my head are first-person shooters. This made me wonder about all of the third-person multiplayer shooters I’ve played in the past, and which ones I was particularly infatuated with. Read on to see my five favorite third-person multiplayer games. … More My 5 Favorite 3rd-Person Multiplayer Shooters
I’m going to be honest with you. When Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was announced, I didn’t really give a fuck. I didn’t make time to read any articles, watch any videos, or even ask any of my friends about it. After being greatly let down by just about every title the franchise released since Resident Evil 4 (except Revelations… those games are lit), I figured I’d wait a year until it dropped to under $20 and play it then. … More Recommended – Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
I’ll come out and say it: The Last of Us is my favorite game of all time. No other title rivals its intense, brutal combat sequences, beautifully crafted post-apocalyptic environments, and heart-wrenching narrative about a jaded old man and an audacious young girl fighting their way across the country to save humankind from a deadly virus. … More Being Grounded Never Felt So Right
There is no greater triumph than standing over the fallen, disintegrating body of a Souls boss. Nothing provides a better boost to the ego than seeing your foe collapse to the ground while the words “You Defeated”, “Victory Achieved”, “Heir of Fire Destroyed”, etc. appear across the screen. If you’ve never felt this glorious feeling, … More Ranking the Souls Games
