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

Torment: Tides of Numenera review

Rated: 4 / 5 I've tried to get through a few RPGs in the past, and failed.  Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy IX, Diablo, Diablo II, and Baldur's Gate.  Basically amounted to just losing the will to continue in those games.  It had to do with the monotony of combat, grinding, lack of interest in … Continue reading Torment: Tides of Numenera review

Shadow Tactics: Blade of the Shogun (2016) review

Rated: 3.5 / 5 I question how much I actually enjoy stealth games.  Aside from Thief I and II, I don't normally go out of my way to play these sorts of games.  On the other hand, certain RPGs like Deus Ex, while not primarily a stealth game yet can be played as one, do … Continue reading Shadow Tactics: Blade of the Shogun (2016) review

System Shock (1994) and Quake (1996) review

So in celebration of cocksucking California passing bullet legislation, I figure I'd talk about the best defining first-person-shooters ever made, outside of Doom (made after Doom). Surely everyone has heard of Doom being the first major defining first person shooter game, which is still awesome to this day.  True, Wolfenstein came before it, and was … Continue reading System Shock (1994) and Quake (1996) review
