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

Sonic Generations (2011) and Sonic Mania (2017) review

Sonic Generations Rated: 3 / 5 (good, but may be a while before I play it again, if ever) So I haven't played a Sonic the Hedgehog game ever since Sonic Heroes (2003) on the Nintendo Gamecube (GCN).  Up until that point, I enjoyed virtually all the games found on the Sega Genesis, which is … Continue reading Sonic Generations (2011) and Sonic Mania (2017) review

The Witcher 3 (2015) review

Rated: 4.5 / 5 Exhausted.  Weary.  Done.  Finished.  I first played this game when it first came out; finished my first playthrough after roughly 80 hours.  I enjoyed the experience, though I was glad to see it end.  3 years later, I got back into it again, knowing that there were expansions to play, updates … Continue reading The Witcher 3 (2015) review

Resident Evil 7 (2017) review

Rated: 2.5-3 / 5 (depending on my mood) Completely Tangent Intro So I was playing through The Witcher 3, with all the DLC installed.  And after, I don't know, between 50-60 hours of playing, as good as that game is, all I could think was, "Goddamnit, isn't this fucking game over yet?  How fucking long … Continue reading Resident Evil 7 (2017) review

The Witcher (2007) review

Rated: 3.5 / 5 Note: I have only played this game with the Full Combat Rebalance (FCR) mod. Any input I provide based on the combat gameplay will be a reflection of this, as this mod does give the game a significant overhaul. Yep, regressed from the 2nd game into the first one. Why? Because … Continue reading The Witcher (2007) review

The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings review

Rated: 5/5 Yep, a game review.  And with that rating, you can rightfully expect that this will be a glowing review with praises and hugs and kisses.  And sex and violence.  And mods.  And modded sex and violence.  It's going to be one of those reviews, so I'm putting up the warning signs. Anyway, this … Continue reading The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings review

Grand Theft Auto V review

Rated: 4/5* * = with some caveats and warnings that must be brought up So, first confession, I initially played this a few years ago on the PS3. At the time, I thought it was the best GTA game ever made. Granted, one could think that with any newly released GTA game, but I thought … Continue reading Grand Theft Auto V review

Wing Commander review

Rated: 2/5 So this PC version is from GOG.com, and uses DosBox.  Well, this is a game that certainly shows its age from 1990, coming out 3 years before Doom, that had 360 degree movement.  So in some respects, Doom is actually a step back in terms of gameplay compared to this game, but on … Continue reading Wing Commander review

Revisiting the Sensitive Censorship Issue in Board Gaming.

Some of you may remember in an earlier blog post how I was outraged at the alteration of card art for a game I backed on kickstarter.                     Outraged because I was under the impression that the art was changed due to Tristan Hall (the creator … Continue reading Revisiting the Sensitive Censorship Issue in Board Gaming.

Obduction review

Rated: 4/5 I helped fund the kickstarter campaign, and I'm late to the party in reviewing it. I wanted to make a gameplay video first, showing my runthrough, but apparently it's never that simple. I used the Nvidia Geforce Experience Shadowplay Recorder. It tends to split the clips up into 15-20 minute increments, which didn't … Continue reading Obduction review
