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

Revisiting Dark Souls | A Clunky Masterpiece

The first time I played Dark Souls, I was a senior in high school and I thought I was the best when it came to every video game (that wasn’t League of Legends). Dark Souls taught me a little humility. I struggled and spent hours upon hours trying to understand how to be better at … Continue reading Revisiting Dark Souls | A Clunky Masterpiece

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

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Review | The Best Pokemon Game in Years

Pokemon was the first game series that captured my imagination. I didn’t even need to really play the game to enjoy it. I played Silver version before I could even read, so my first playthrough was just me battling Sentrets with my Cyndaquil for months. I just liked spending time with my little fire echidna.  … Continue reading Pokemon Legends: Arceus Review | The Best Pokemon Game in Years

Dark Souls 3 | Backlog Review

I have always had a love-hate relationship with the Souls games. The emphasis on challenge, exploration, and experimentation is something that I am really drawn toward. However, as someone who was balancing school and a career, it became really difficult to actually put the time in the series required to give it a fair shot … Continue reading Dark Souls 3 | Backlog Review

Halo Wars 2 | Backlog Review

The original Halo Wars was a the first time that the Halo series was taking the chance and providing a different experience from its traditional FPS form. Much like the original Halo, it was taking a risk by delving into a genre that most people preferred to play on PC.  Most RTS games were not … Continue reading Halo Wars 2 | Backlog Review

Unpacking Review

As someone who recently moved into a new city, I saw Unpacking as reliving the nightmare that had been my move. However, the simple idea of a game revolving around the puzzle of finding the appropriate stuff in your home was something that I couldn’t not try. It was so mundane, yet it felt like … Continue reading Unpacking Review
