The Divine Right of Art

When one thinks of divine right, they may think of the excuse kings and monarchs made for their authority and power. That they have been chosen by God to have these rights as a monarch to rule as they wish. Anyone who questions them questions the will of God. Anyone who defies them defies God … Continue reading The Divine Right of Art

Cyberpunk 2077 (2020) review (in progress) part 1

Rated: >= 3 / 5 (assuming it gets properly patched) Wokeness: >= 3 / 5 Let me just state up front that I have never played any game on release day ever in my entire life. This is a first for me. And I knew this was going to be a bad idea, because 90% … Continue reading Cyberpunk 2077 (2020) review (in progress) part 1

Mass Effect 2 (2010) review

Rated: 2.5 / 5 Wokeness: 3 / 5 Review Well, I guess this review has been 3 years coming. The replay of this game was more of a struggle than I expected. Not because the game is more difficult than I remember, but because it's not as interesting as I remember. While it improves on … Continue reading Mass Effect 2 (2010) review

Elex (2017) review

https://www.gamesload.com/images/products/THQNordic/Elex_bg.jpg Rated: 4 / 5 Wokeness: 2 / 5 * Just got done doing a 50 hour spree playing a little hidden gem of an RPG called Elex, made by Piranha Bytes (guys who did the Gothic trilogy, of which only the first 2 games are good). Set in a partial sci-fi (via the Clerics … Continue reading Elex (2017) review

Halo 1, 2, 3, and Reach (2001-2007, 2010) review

Introduction (skip this) For a long while, I've been wondering if I outgrew first person shooters. In all fairness, there's been a large gap between the games I played from my childhood, the last recent modern shooter, and today's shooters. Regarding most recent memory, the last ones I recall playing were Bioshock, Bioshock 3, Wolfenstein: … Continue reading Halo 1, 2, 3, and Reach (2001-2007, 2010) review

XCOM 2 (2016) review (w/ expansion)

Rated: 3. 5 / 5 Now this is more like it.  Is it as good as the original X-COM from 1994?  Hell no, nothing is.  But it's definitely a better game than the previous attempt from 2012.  Especially with the War of the Chosen expansion. What improvements does this make compared to the last one?  … Continue reading XCOM 2 (2016) review (w/ expansion)

X-COM: UFO Defense (1994), XCOM: Enemy Unknown (2012) dual review

UFO Defense Rated: 5 / 5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhPDc1gbP5k When it comes to the original X-COM: UFO Defense game, I am terrified of playing it ever again.  Not because the game is too tense for me (though it does get tense as hell).  It's because when I finally sat down one morning at about 9am or so, … Continue reading X-COM: UFO Defense (1994), XCOM: Enemy Unknown (2012) dual review

Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (2004) review, and mod notes

Rated: 4 / 5 This is not a simple game to get into.  What I mean by that is, there's no way to play this game without modding it.  It would be too buggy otherwise.  So your experiences may differ depending on which version you get a hold of (and how you mod it).  You … Continue reading Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (2004) review, and mod notes

Dragon Age: Inquisition (2014) review

I spent 30 fucking dollars on this trash!  What the fuck!? Rated: 1.5 / 5 What you would like to do in an ideal setting is to take the most realistic objective standards of masculine and female beauty and apply them to the videogame.  You don't want realistic portrayals in that sense because you're actually … Continue reading Dragon Age: Inquisition (2014) review
