How Nintendo Saved My Life
Growing up as a child, I was always fascinated with Nintendo, specifically the Legend of Zelda franchise. I've always loved the storyline behind video game plots. In my childlike mind, I used to compare it to a high-quality movie that you could control. I started gaming out young, sitting beside my mother as she would play different games on our good ole trustworthy GameCube such as Harvest Moon, Final Fantasy, and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. I loved watching my mom play her video games in the late quiet of the night.
'Loop Hero' is the Perfect Game for a Post-Covid World
While the title of this sophomore release from indie studio Four Quarters is appropriate, albeit bromide, I find it unfortunate that "Oblivion" is already a shopworn gaming trademark, because that is the word that keeps coming to mind as I loop my way closer and closer to 100 hours of game time.
Animal Crossing & Depression
Ever since I was a child, I have been obsessed with video games. It didn’t matter what the genre was; I played a little bit of everything. RPGs, Racing games, horror survival, 2D platforms, you name it, I was dabbling with it at one point or another. The first video game console my siblings and I were introduced to was the NES or Nintendo Entertainment System released on July 15th, 1983. My eldest brother actually had an Atari 2600 before coming into money to buy his first gaming system, which was the NES. By the time he purchased a Turbo Graffix 16, he had donated the previous console to us in the middle 90s.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is the way the game was always meant to be played
Last week, just a day or two after League of Legends: Wild Rift, launched on iOS, I made this tweet: And you know what? I stand by it. After spending a week with Wild Rift, I can confidently say it's the most fun I've had on a mobile game in a long time. Not only that, but Wild Rift plays better on mobile, and is in fact superior to the original game.

Outriders Demo: Will it Be Another Anthem or Pure Gold?
Having defeated the Outriders Demo in both Single-Player and Multiplayer, there is a lot to say about the game. The game has many positives and some negatives that I'm hoping are fixed at launch. The good outweighs the bad for this demo, and I'm hoping it stays that way. The gaming community was promised so much with Anthem. Still, it all fell short, giving me concern about ALL demos that gain my interest.
Stardew Valley changed my life
The global pandemic has forced all of us to rethink our daily lives, re-evaluate what we hold dear and what we crave in our entertainment. It has affected me in ways I didn't think were possible. For one, the boredom and loneliness had me thinking about trying a cutesy farming RPG with ancient graphics. Little did I know that it would change my life and cause me to change the way I see retro gaming.
Over the years there have been many gaming movies released based on the top selling or most popular games at the time. One of my early favorite was TRON, released in July of 1982 starring Jeff Bridges about a computer programmer who was zapped into the TRON video game and then has to beat different levels to escape. Then back in 2010 the sequel to TRON, TRON Legacy was released with the return of Jeff Bridges 28 years later and Garrett Hedlund as his son. But, these are not the movies I wish to talk to you about.

How To Build an Imperial Commissar in The Pathfinder RPG
There are few sights as awe-inspiring, or as outright terrifying, as that of an imperial commissar. In their iconic peaked caps and greatcoats, it is their job to motivate the troops... through whatever means necessary. Sometimes that means charging the guns of the enemy with sword in hand, bolt pistol barking. Sometimes it means executing those who falter in their duty, making it clear to every guardsman that no matter the terror before them it cannot be worse than the officer at their backs.
Thoughts on OMORI
I have never written a video game review before, this will be my first time. That's how much I have to say about OMOCAT'S first and--at the moment--only game, OMORI. On Steam it is tagged as "psychological horror"--which seemed strange to me, as the screencaps previewed on Steam seem very innocuous--adorable, even!
Game Review: Outriders
Outriders made a bit of a splash when it first was announced back at E3 2019. While it was overshadowed for a time, Outriders came back into a spotlight with a beta demo that seemingly showcased what was to come in a very positive light. The mechanics were solid, the graphics were decent, and you even got to keep whatever progress you made if you purchased the game after it released. With promises of cross-platform compatibility and a development team that promised a finished, functional product at launch, it seemed like Outriders was shaping up to be a hit. So ... what went wrong?

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the make of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.” Washington Irving.
