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

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

Gaming has evolved tremendously over the course of the past decade alone. There is a huge variety of games being offered now, and with that comes diversity in how a developer might choose to deliver their game.

Revisiting Halo Reach | A Bitter-Sweet Full-Circle Experience

The Halo series was on fire at the end of the first decade of the 2000s. It seemed like the series would stay at the top with Call of Duty for years to come, but that isn’t the way things played out.

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

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.

Mario Party Superstars Review

This is a little different from the usual stuff that I review for this blog, but my nostalgia couldn’t keep me away from writing about it. I have not bought a Mario Party game since Mario Party 2 for various reasons over the years, but the most recent reasons have been that the games just … Continue reading Mario Party Superstars Review
