The Fear of Losing One’s Memories

The idea of losing my mind is one of my worst fears. Not spiders. Not poverty. The idea that one day I could wake up and forget everyone […]

Roller Coaster Tycoon For The Switch…Good Thing or Shady Thing?

Recently, Atari announced that they will be crowd funding their popular Roller Coaster Tycoon series in order to port the game over to the Switch. Personally, I loved the Roller Coaster Tycoon series, and I was actually pretty excited about the prospect of playing these games on the Switch. Immediately nostalgia kicked in and I remembered the hours upon hours that I put into the original during summer breaks when I should have been outside. I spent many late nights trying to figure out why a ride continuously broke down or why my janitor felt it was necessary to cut the grass for the entire park instead of actually taking out the trash and cleaning vomit. While I was sitting […]

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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Arms Review

Arms is the kind of motion controlled boxing game that I can get behind. The fast pace combat, mixed with a pretty easy learning curve, makes this experience fun for anyone who would like to play a game that is challenging and enjoyable all at the same time. Growing up, I would have preferred exploring a dungeon or controlling the […]
