The Gunk Review | It Could Have Been so Much More

Nothing gets me like a good action-adventure platformer, especially one with a realized and beautiful world. So seeing The Gunk recently hyped up on social media, I needed to go out and try it. Luckily, it’s available on Game Pass, so I was able to snag it up easily.  However, how does this tale of … Continue reading The Gunk Review | It Could Have Been so Much More

The Outer Worlds on Switch | Backlog Review

The moment that The Outer Worlds was announced, I was hooked. A sci-fi RPG where you explore different planets and space stations and run into cooky characters that may or may not try to get you to try some corporate fish in a can? It seems to combine No Man’s Sky with the Fallout series … Continue reading The Outer Worlds on Switch | Backlog Review

The Artful Escape | Backlog Review

There are times that I will download a game with the full intention of only grabbing all the achievements and turning it off again. I had every intention of The Artful Escape being a quick once-and-done achievement run but the game surprised me in more ways than one. It was a rock opera coming-of-age story … Continue reading The Artful Escape | Backlog Review

Revisiting Pokemon Snap | An Overlooked Gem of the ’90s

I remember going to Blockbuster as a kid and seeing the N64 they had in their lobby. Often, I would try and get a few rounds of something in before I was carted back home and sent to bed so my parents could watch a movie without me. However, one day it all became Pokemon … Continue reading Revisiting Pokemon Snap | An Overlooked Gem of the ’90s

Revisiting Super Mario 64 | Not as Super as I Remember

I never owned Mario 64 as a kid. I could only play snippets whenever I visited my uncle, so it took quite a while to get a full playthrough completed. I remember running through the fields of Bob-Omb Battlefield and shooting myself through the canon, and having a great time. It was such an immersive … Continue reading Revisiting Super Mario 64 | Not as Super as I Remember

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard | Backlog Review

Resident Evil 6 left a sour taste in a lot of people’s mouths, and besides a few ports and handheld spin-offs, the series had been quiet for a long time. That is until Capcom announced the next iteration in the iconic series with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. A Resident Evil they claimed was returning to … Continue reading Resident Evil 7: Biohazard | Backlog Review

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

Revisiting Dishonored | A Great Introduction to Stealth

There are few games that can capture that feeling of being a predator stalking its prey, quite like Dishonored. While not my first experience with stealth games, it was the first one that made me see how open-ended they could be when they were done correctly. Experimentation, trial and error, and exploration should be key … Continue reading Revisiting Dishonored | A Great Introduction to Stealth

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
