As of writing this, I've played about 11-hours of Fallout 4 so far, and felt like sharing some of my early thoughts.
Already, I can say that this game is awesome.
I may get excited about a lot of things, and many games, but this game truly is awesome!. Read More...
I gotta say, that I’m very impressed with the Nintendo 3DS. Even without buying any of the launch games, I’ve found a lot of entertainment built right into the device.
First off, I wasn’t really impressed with any of the launch games, so that played a factor in not getting any of the games. I already have plenty of regular DS games to play on the new system. I’ve played enough super monkey ball. Street fighter isn’t my cup of tea and I have the iPhone version anyway. I’m not a cat person and already have Nintendogs. Etc etc. I’m disappointed there wasn’t a mega win launch game, but I’m fine with waiting for Mario or Zelda.
Most people (myself included) would first want to know how are the 3D cameras? Or how well does the system actually show 3D? Read More...
So, I’m minding my own business, with nothing interesting going on. Then I see a tweet from @MysteryGuitarM saying he’s looking for someone to play Portal 2 co-op with. So I tweet out my steam name and try to figure out his steam name to add him. Read More...

Saints Row IV just came out on Tuesday, available for most consoles, and Windows. (Steam link: http://store.steampowered.com/app/206420/ )
Last summer, on a whim, I picked up Saints Row: The Third and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I had never played the first two games, so wasn’t sure what to expect.
It’s a very silly game. Tons of customization, tons of exploration, tons of killing anything you feel like killing, going anywhere you want to go, doing anything in any order, lots of satire of other games / popular things / anything, and MUCH sophomoric humor (I could elaborate, but I’d rather not. :P ) Read More...
First up is “Gone Home” by The Fullbright Company (Link to Steam page, for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux.)
This was a VERY short game. Took me 3 hours to get through, although likely could be completely in much less time.
The entirety of the game takes place in a large house. You can pick up objects, rotate them, and put them back. Read More...
Sometimes a game can be as simple as clicking a single button.
No other requirement. No strategy. No challenge. No winning. No Losing.
Just click the button. Read More...
Luckily for me, September is a slow month when it comes to new games. I’ll be able to keep catching up on some other games.
So many games on my current backlog, and I lose track of my ‘extended backlog’ :P Read More...
This game has completely captivated my game-playing time this week. I’m about 8 hours into the game, and just… I’m finding it difficult to stop thinking about it.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the MYST series. Based on screenshots of this game alone, it’s easy to compare the game to MYST.
You’re on an island. Given no information to start with about what to do. You don’t know why you’re there, how you got there. Read More...
It’s been awhile since my last update. Been busy with work, and too many games.
Much of my game time has been occupied by Grand Theft Auto 5, as I’m sure many other people have been doing the same.
I was never able to get into the previous GTA games. They just didn’t appeal to me. However, over the last few years I’ve been more interested in the more free-form, open-world games such as Just Cause 2, Borderlands 1 and 2, Batman Arkham trilogy, Fallout 3, Prototype 2, Far Cry 2/3, etc.
And of course, this new one was meant to be the “definitive open world game” type thing. And I fall too easily into the hype for new games, so I picked it up. Read More...
($10 for WIndows)
Influx was a game that seemed to come out of nowhere. I hadn’t heard of it until I found a coupon to buy it. I’m definitely glad I bought it. Read More...
I first saw this game during E3 a few years back, and it didn't really interest me.
(If you read my review on Factorio, you probably already can tell where this is going).
Last week, I was given a copy of the game by a friend, so I felt it fair to give the game a fair try, to see how it was.
I had seen some fairly average reviews for the game, so I did not have high expectations for it.
Well, long story short (too late!), I ended up really enjoying this! Read More...
Oh hey there! Been awhile, I know.
I have a lot of posts that I've been meaning to write, but been too distracted by other things, such as work and games.
Seriously, Overwatch is pretty spectacular.
Blizzard games always tend to have that added special touch that really makes them stand out, and Overwatch continues that trend. Read More...
I really intended to write this like two month ago.
Oh well, here I am now.
I never played any of the previous DOOM games. I didn't really see them as being something I'd like. So when DOOM 2016 was first announced, I thought nothing of it. The previews didn't do anything to interest me.
However, somewhere along the way, I figured, you know what? I really like Bethesda games, so I might as well give it a try.
I'm glad I did. Read More...
This is another game I played several months ago, and forgot to write about!
INSIDE is the follow-up game from the studio behind LIMBO. If you never played LIMBO, that's ok. This game doesn't have anything to do with that game, other than similar character design, and horizontal nature of the game.
A lot of playing INSIDE is about experiencing the game. It is hard to explain.
It is a puzzle game, but the puzzles are not necessarily difficult. (although I was pretty stuck at one specific part near the end, but after setting the game down for a while and coming back, I was able to then continue)
And then the ending was shocking. And probably left me more confused than anything.
So while I wasn't personally satisfied with the ending, I did appreciate the game as a whole.
And I strongly recommend checking it out!
Yesterday, I lost track of time, because practically all day I was playing this game.
I really like this game! Everything just works well together.
Your goal is to prevent the murder of various guests of this mansion.

Massively Multiplayer Online games. Primarily the MMORPG (Role-Playing Game).
Oh boy, this is going to be a long post.
For a long time, I looked down on the concept of a MMO game. For several reasons.
First, I simply preferred single-player games. I like to play at my own speed, and not have to worry about whether other players will help or hurt my progress.
Second, I had disdain for the concept of paying a monthly subscription for a game, and having to maintain that subscription, otherwise I would no longer have access to the game, and all of my progress.
This is going to be a long post! Read More...
