Impressions of Destiny 2: The Forsaken King

It has a ton of what I loved about Destiny, but also the same of what I couldn’t stand. Over the weekend, while I was still refusing to play anymore of Shadow of The Tomb Raider, I decided that I was going to go ahead and download the new expansion for Destiny 2. Now I have played every DLC and expansion since the launch of the first Destiny, but something changed with the release of Destiny 2 and the subsequent expansions that would follow. Though I was happy that they actually had something of a story in Destiny 2, I felt like the content just wasn’t there. I never had much of a desire to play PVP and the raid […]

Impressions of Spider-Man

What more can be said about this game that isn’t already being said? Being a fan of Spider-Man ever since I was five and allowed to have money, every source of media entertainment that has Spider-Man in the title usually takes my money. I have seen all of the movies, played all the games, and read just about any comic that I could get my hands on. So, when I say that this is by far, the best Spider-Man game that I have ever played and seen, that should say something. Story One of the best things that this game tackles is the complex and often heavy story. So much of the Spider-Man lore is driven around the tough choices […]

20 Hours Into Octopath Traveler…

Last week I shared my first saga with Octopath Traveler and my impressions on how the game feels to me. If you want, check it out here. Work has been a slog, and working long hours has made it difficult to actually put in some quality video game time. My routine has been something to the tune of mass confusion and panic, with just a hint of getting things done. If I can work out for an hour a day, I’m doing pretty good. That being said, I can say that I have gotten to a place in Octopath where I don’t have to invest a whole lot of time to get some enjoyment out of it. Steady Grind As […]

First 10 Hours of Octopath Traveler

I recently picked up my copy of Octopath Traveler, mainly because of the mass shortages of physical copies that every store was facing, but also because I needed something for a long road trip that me and my brother were about to take part in. Little bit of back story: My grandmother recently had a stroke and though she is recovering well and doing much better, my family decided that it was time to move her out to Mississippi with us. She has lived most of her life in Sylmar California and has always been reluctant to make the move, but after this incident, she finally came around and agreed that it would be best to be around family. We […]

Impressions of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

I should probably start of by saying that I have never played a Ys game before this one. Many of the podcasts that I listen too made mention of this port and usually had pretty amazing things to say about the series as a whole. Since the summer months are pretty slow when it comes to new releases, I decided that now might be the perfect time to pick this up and give it a try. Like many, I usually stick with what I know and what I enjoy. I will be the first one in line for a new Kingdom Hearts, but will usually let the dust settle for an off the wall series before I spend my money […]

Giving Sea of Thieves a Second Chance: Pretty Much No Man’s Sky But With Pirates

I really want to like this game. In theory, it should be something that grabbed me and that would have forced me to bug my friends into submission, but I just can’t get through it. I have been trying to get my friends to check this game out, but I could tell that it was going to take some convincing. How can I expect them to pay $60 for a game that I wasn’t even too sure about? Apparently, I’m pretty good at negotiations and was able to get my friends to try it out. (That and anyone can get a 14 day free trail to Xbox Game Pass, which allows you to play Sea of Thieves for free). Over […]

Impressions of Sea of Thieves

I heard all of the excitement surrounding Sea of Thieves and I felt as though this would be the game for me. I don’t know why, but I think my favorite aspect of Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag was the sailing. The idea that you can just be out in the water and discover new […]

Impressions of Xenoblade Chronicles 2

When I first played Xenoblade for the 3ds, I was not sure what to expect. I had read a couple of reviews and watched some videos in order to try and figure out what was going on. Most of it confused me, but I could kinda see where they were going with it. So with a job that offered me some down time, and some extra money burning a whole in my pocket, I decided to pick it up and give it a shot.  Hands down one of the better surprise games that I had ever played. I loved the combat, the art direction, the cast of characters, and the story. Pretty rare to find a game that can actually […]

Review of Uncharted: Lost Legacy

It has been a while since i have posted anything on my site. I have been working like crazy and trying to finish all of my wedding preparations. I love games and I love writing, but sometimes situations cause me to no longer have a choice in regards to what I am aloud to do with my time and unfortunately I do have to do adult stuff.  That being said, I did have few opportunities to play some pretty fun games and now that I have some time to kill, I’m going to post my reviews for said games starting with Uncharted: Lost Legacy.  Developer: Naughty Dog Platform: PlayStation 4 Release date: August 22, 2017 I have been a huge […]

Splatoon 2 Review

​Developer: Nintendo Release Date: July 21, 2017 Platform: Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 is a third person action shooter with a lot of charm and personality. I never had the opprotunity to play the first Splatoon but was always curious by it. I watched a few Twitch competitions and always liked the idea behind it. At the beginning of the month, I had the opprotunity to play the demo for this game and ended being pretty impressed with the little amount of time that the demo allowed. It drew me in with the colorful world, interesting characters, and pretty simple game mechanics. Beginning of the game You start the game with the same tutorial that you would have gotten if you […]

Impressions of Destiny 2 Beta

This past weekend, Bungie released their open beta for Destiny 2 and, after finding an hour duirng my hectic weekend, I was finally able to see what this game has to offer. I have a lot of good memories when it comes to the first Destiny. I remeber playing the opening beta with my friends and getting really excited for what the actual game will have to offer. We spent hours running around a run down version of Russia while fighting a slew of random enemies and exploring our Guardians abilities. When the final game came out, we still had a lot of fun, but the magic was fading. We spent a few months playing Destiny relgiously every weekend and […]

Impressions on Splatoon 2

Yesterday Nintendo released the final multiplayer demo for their upcoming third person shooter Splatoon 2. This demo was from 5PM to 9PM on Saturday and if you missed it, then you will just have to wait for the game to be released this Friday. I believe that having a four hour window on one day to try your new game […]
