Dishonored: The Death of the Outsider | Backlog Review

To finish out stealth month, I visit a game that I had no idea even existed, Dishonored: The Death of the Outsider. I had heard something along the lines that the Dishonored franchise had really fun DLC but I didn’t know the latest one was its own expansion.  As you can imagine, I was pretty … Continue reading Dishonored: The Death of the Outsider | Backlog Review

Dishonored 2 | Backlog Review

If you asked me in 2013 if I liked Dishonored, I would have said, yeah, it was a lot of fun. It was the first game that I had played that made me think and scout out an area before making my decision to move in and take out my target. However, I soon forgot … Continue reading Dishonored 2 | Backlog Review

Doom Eternal | Backlog Review

The first time that I had ever played a Doom game was with the 2016 reboot, and I loved every moment of it. The fast-paced metal music combined with the glory kill mechanic and traditional run and gun gameplay of the franchise all lent themselves to a very cohesive experience. It left a strong impression … Continue reading Doom Eternal | Backlog Review

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order | Backlog Review

I have come to the conclusion in recent years that I have a love-hate relationship with the Star Wars franchise. It’s a series with some highs that even Cloud City can’t see and some lows that lie beneath even the Sarlacc’s pit. While the movies might be fairly split down the middle for me, I … Continue reading Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order | Backlog Review

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus | Backlog Review

I was pleasantly surprised by Wolfenstein: The New Order. The gunplay was fast-paced and arcadey, the levels were varied and interesting, and the plot and characters were a lot more detailed than I thought they would be. Of course, I had my issues with the first, like the heavy-handed symbolism and monologues or the headquarters … Continue reading Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus | Backlog Review

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood | Backlog Review

Continuing on my Wolfenstein adventure, I’m onto the smaller games to have released in MachineGames’ lineup. The Old Blood was released between The New Order and The New Colossus but is set before the events of The New Order, so that means that we are traveling back to the past and WW2.  I honestly didn’t … Continue reading Wolfenstein: The Old Blood | Backlog Review

What Remains of Edith Finch | Backlog Review

I remember when this game was blowing up, and everyone was going wild over its storytelling.  Unfortunately, it was right at the time when I had to sell a lot of my gaming stuff in order to afford books for school. I restrained myself at the time and kept away from knowing much of anything … Continue reading What Remains of Edith Finch | Backlog Review

Sable Review

Sable is one of those games where I became hooked the moment I saw it. I didn’t even need to see gameplay to know that I was going to play it when it released. The game takes direct inspiration from artist Moebius, and it’s breathtaking to look at. Moebius’ surreal otherworldly aesthetic translates perfectly to … Continue reading Sable Review

Wolfenstein: The New Order | Backlog Review

Shooting Nazis is a gaming pastime for many of us, and Wolfenstein set the bar back in the day. But the recent games have been trying to make the franchise fun for modern audiences, and The New Order is one of the standouts of those attempts.  I honestly don’t know how I missed this one. … Continue reading Wolfenstein: The New Order | Backlog Review

Elden Ring Review | A Game That Captures Your Imagination

There are those games where you count down every day until release. Watching as more and more promotional material is released showing off more of the game. And with every screenshot, trailer, and interview that confirms your wildest beliefs, it feels like the game will never come out. I’ve had this experience a lot as … Continue reading Elden Ring Review | A Game That Captures Your Imagination
