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

Top Ten Third-Person Shooters

Before starting this list, I don’t think I have thought about third-person shooters much as being that important to my gaming experience. I had written them off as being all the same for the most part. I honestly don’t know what gave me that impression because this list is even more varied than the top … Continue reading Top Ten Third-Person Shooters

In Defence of the Series S

I have to be honest when Microsoft first announced its next-gen consoles, I was very confused. Why do they keep pulling a Nintendo with naming convention and making it so ridiculous to keep all the devices straight in our heads? At least Playstation keeps things numerical.  Well, after getting rid of my Xbox One back … Continue reading In Defence of the Series S

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. Bungie, the original developers of Halo, was planning on taking a stepping back … Continue reading Revisiting Halo Reach | A Bitter-Sweet Full-Circle Experience

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

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

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

Halo Infinite Campaign Review | A Sequel That Remembers Its Roots

It’s finally time. Halo Infinite has been released and the Master Chief’s story can continue once again. I can’t deny that I have been more than a little nervous about the release of this game. Through all the turbulent news that has been trickling out from insiders, the rocky gameplay reveal, and the developers’ own … Continue reading Halo Infinite Campaign Review | A Sequel That Remembers Its Roots
