Are Loot Boxes A Form Of Gambling?

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 […]

Are Video Games Worth $60?

There is no denying that video games have come a long way. Some of the first video games that I played are now being produced for handheld systems at a fraction of the cost that my parents spent in order for me to enjoy the 16 bit masterpieces. As time presses on, technology doubles and triples in its capabilities to […]

Discussion: How Would You Survive?

You are in your bed, sound asleep, recharging your batteries for the next day. You wake up feeling remarkably refreshed, perhaps thinking that the new workout you did the night before caused you to sleep harder than you ever have. You reach over for your phone and check to see if you have any messages, when you notice that it will not turn on. A slight panic washes over you. Did I forget to plug in my phone again? How many calls have I missed? What time is it?  Because of cell phones, most people will forget that they actually had to tell time by looking at something called a clock.  Now fully awake, you throw the blankets off and […]

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 […]

Thoughts On Remasters and Remakes

With the release of Crash Bandicoot: N Sane Trilogy, rumors have begun making the rounds that more platforming games form the 90s will be making a return. For me, these games were easily 80% of the games that I played as a child. Games like Banjo-Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, and Spyro would take up most if not all of […]
