Pillars of Eternity (PC, 2015)

For a very long time, I have doubted the truth of my golden years in terms of cRPGs. I have long heralded Planescape: Torment as one of my favorite games of all time, but was that a mere mirage? I prefer Fallout 1 and 2 to anything Bethesda has ever done with the series and… Continue reading Pillars of Eternity (PC, 2015)

Overwatch (PC, 2016)

Overwatch took the gaming world by storm in May. I cannot blame anyone for liking it either. Blizzard created a fun game with a distinct cast. I originally had no intention of buying it, but after careful consideration and the peer pressure of a few close friends, I could not hold off. After a few… Continue reading Overwatch (PC, 2016)

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir (PS4, 2016)

I remember when Odin Sphere first came out. I had several friends who were totally into it, but I managed to miss it entirely. When I heard it was going a HD remake for Playstation 4, I was instantly interested. A close friend decided to preorder Odin Sphere for the art book ahead of actually… Continue reading Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir (PS4, 2016)

Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth (PS4, 2016)

Binding of Isaac: Rebirth stands as one of my favorite games of all time. It has surpassed the original, a game I also loved, in every conceivable way. I favor playing Rebirth on my Playstation 4 (the controls are better and my bed is more comfortable than any office chair). When the first ever expansion… Continue reading Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth (PS4, 2016)

Mighty No. 9 (PS4, 2016)

Mighty No. 9 has to be one of the most challenging video games I have ever tried to review. When it launched late last month, it was received with the most venom I have seen for a game in a long time. I am included in that bunch. Not only was the game delayed multiple times, but… Continue reading Mighty No. 9 (PS4, 2016)

Leap of Fate (PC, 2016)

Binding of Isaac: Rebirth reigns as one of my favorite games of all time. Its predecessor, and games like FTL, made me a fan of roguelikes for life. While I do not seek out roguelikes all the time, I always have an eye open for new ones to try. After hearing about Leap of Fate,… Continue reading Leap of Fate (PC, 2016)

The Martian (Book, 2014)

It was almost immediate that The Martian began to bore me. It didn't even hesitate. Within moments, the initial action that left an American astronaut stranded alone on Mars left me alone with him too. I trudged on. Despite the jargon and despite the focus on science I continued. There was something towing me along.… Continue reading The Martian (Book, 2014)
