    Bury Me, My Love

    Bury Me, My Love

    Bury Me, My Love is an indie game that pushes a lot of boundaries. There’s a lot of text adventure games through many mediums, but this is the first one I’ve played based on a Syrian refugee. For a limited time, it was free for Switch Players but on other mediums, you can get the game for less than a fiver. I picked up the game not just because it was free, but because I found the concept and plot interesting.

I really like the game, but there’s some things I really love and some things I really don’t like so I decided to list them. These are all my personal opinion. I’ll start with the dislike then I’ll go with something I liked.

    NCAA Football Videogame Wishlist

    NCAA Football Videogame Wishlist

    I'm really jumping the gun here as it could still take until the Summer of 2022 for the NCAA Football Video Game Series to return given the current pace of the rule change allowing college athletes endorsements, but still there's no time like the present. And I can't deny my inspiration and motivation on this topic any longer. I was kind of wanting to finish the first season of my OU to the SEC NCAA Football 14 Series before I got into this, but at the same time with College Football on hiatus until Labor Day Weekend, unless you count the Spring Games which are fun but still, it's the time of year you could argue we need the game the most. So here we go in no particular order:

    My Predictions for The Last of Us II

    In May 2020, Naughy Dog is once again immersing us into the dark, dreary, and depressing world of The Last of Us. With the focus primarily on Ellie, now grown and full of rage, the highly anticipated follow-up is sure to be just as emotionally charged as the original. It is Naughty Dog, after all, a developer known for drawing raw emotion from its fanbase.

    Gaming as Art

    Gaming as Art

    I quite often feel that gaming is very often overlooked as an art form, even scoffed at by various groups of people as connoisseurs of art and I feel it is unfairly so. As a medium, I believe it can explore all the themes traditional art styles do and add interesting perspectives to them as they games allow players to experience them for themselves from a different perspective. Yes, there are games that are just silly fun, but there are plenty of games that explore a wide variety of subjects in interesting ways.

    10 Video Game Quotes That Hit Me Hard

    I’ve been playing video games since I was a kid, back when I was filled with anxiety and had a hard time with multiplayer games. I still do have a hard time playing PUBG, even though I paid the full $30 to have it on my computer. I’ve thought about Overwatch, knowing its ranking systems and awesome story beyond team-based online gameplay could maybe fit my style a bit better. But I think it’s just the way I am—I prefer story-based games that I can enjoy at my own pace, without having to rely on others.

    Perler Bead DIY: Extra Lives from 'Contra'

    "Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start:" the Konami Code that many of us recognize by heart. Contra was an NES game that I loved to play as a kid, and still do as an adult. In this article, I'm going to walk everyone through how to make extra lives from this run-and-gun game. Two months ago, I wrote a DIY article about teaching everyone how to make a block from Super Mario Bros. 3. It was the first time in almost 20 years that I've done any perler bead art. To me, doing this hobby is not only therapeutic, but exciting. You can check out that article here.

    Google Stadia Wows at E3

    Google Stadia Wows at E3

    As a gamer, I'm always looking for new things to check out, explore, etc. E3 normally one of those events that pique that curiosity for me every year. There's always a presentation that just has that 'it' factor going for it, whether it's a game, or a console release, or maybe another console competitor altogether. This year, Google decided to make themselves known by unveiling a truly ambitious vision for the future of gaming with the Google Stadia reveal. Console-free, Cloud-based gaming isn't a new idea. Back in the day, a service called OnLive had essentially the same kind of dream; before Google even thought about stepping out into these cloud gaming streets, the folks at OnLive had the bright idea to stream games of all types for a subscription price. Of course, this was in the very infancy of cloud computing, so the dream of cloud gaming was still kind of like an unexplored country of sorts. OnLive's time in the spotlight was short-lived, as the company was eventually bought out by Sony entertainment, but their early foray into the promise of cloud gaming was a glimpse into a truly different direction for gaming. Fast forward to over a decade later. We're seeing a re-birth to the concept of truly console-free gaming (and some say the return of the spirit of OnLive) with Google's announcement of their ambitious vision for gaming with Google Stadia. Google had already been seriously exploring the idea of streaming and containing games within their cloud infrastructure with the beta program Google Stream prior to Stadia's introduction at E3. Check out the Connect E3 presentation below:

    Portable 'Overwatch'? How Does Blizzard Switch It up from Console and PC?

    I've been a regular player of Overwatch since mid-2017 and I've racked up over 1000 hours during my many triumphs and even more failures. Since the game is over three years old, and has arguably been losing popularity over the last year, along with Blizzard's recent controversy over the Hong Kong protests, the transition of Overwatch into the world of handheld gaming couldn't have been at a more inopportune time.

    PS4 Exclusives that Crushed the Xbox One

    PS4 Exclusives that Crushed the Xbox One

    As we enter the final greatest hits era of the current-gen consoles, I think it's fair to say we've seen some magnificent titles over the last five years. And that even goes out to Microsoft, too. Because as much as I'd like to fangirl over the idea that Sony produces the superior exclusives, I can also vouch for Xbox and some of their golden titles, too. But sadly, as I look back over the years and try to shove back the biased opinion over the two consoles, I still always manage to come to the same conclusion. And that is that Playstation just has better games overall. I'm sorry if that offends certain players, and I bloody know it more than likely will.Yes, I've played Forza. Yes, I've played Gears of War. But do those two or three good experiences make up for the handfuls of stunning journeys I've encountered with the PS4 exclusives? No, I'm afraid not. Because Sony knows how to make a good game, and once they produce gold, they strike it and milk that mine for all it's worth.So let's take a look at some of the most memorable and successful PS4 exclusives to date, and should you be in a position to choose between consoles, perhaps this will whet your appetite for the better choice! *wink wink*It's not too late to switch sides, Microsoft fans. There's plenty of PS Exclusives for you to get your hands on. And when the time finally arrives where you can pick up current-gen consoles for bargain prices, hopefully, you'll know what to do.Allow me to enlighten you.I present to you, PS4 EXCLUSIVES THAT CRUSHED THE XBOX ONE.

    Top 5 Masks in 'Majora's Mask'

    Top 5 Masks in 'Majora's Mask'

    I know I’ve spoken at length before about Majora’s Mask, but most of those discussions have been centred around how dark the game is or how mysterious so many elements of Termina are. Today, I want to take a look back at Link’s strangest adventure, but actually take a look at the masks that Link obtains throughout the game. Now, as one may easily deduce, masks are an integral part of the game. Link can get a grand total of 24 masks throughout Termina, each of which serve him in a different way. Of course, it is not compulsory to get every single mask in the game to finish it, but there is a certain reward for obtaining all the masks in the form of the Fierce Deity Mask, one of the Transformation Masks (which, by the way, will not be featured on this list for reasons I shall explain shortly). In this list, I’m going to be going over my Top 5 masks from the game. How I will be ranking them depends on utility, aesthetic and personal enjoyment, and as such, the list will be subjective, so if you have a different list or if you disagree, that’s totally fine! I would love to have a discussion with you if you don’t agree, because learning different points of view is always a plus.

    How To Build The Winter Soldier in The Pathfinder RPG

    How To Build The Winter Soldier in The Pathfinder RPG

    The Winter Soldier is an old spook story in the world of international espionage. A vicious killer who comes out of the shadows, destroys his target, and then vanishes without a trace. The man behind the mystique is, of course, Sergeant James Barnes. Captured by the enemy, and experimented on during the reign of the Nazis, Bucky fell back into the hands of Hydra's Soviet branch after the war was over. His mind and body were altered, turning him into a brainwashed, cybernetic killing machine who, when he wasn't in the field, was kept in suspended animation as little more than a weapon in cold storage. If that's the sort of character you'd like to bring to your Pathfinder table, then this handy guide should get you started.

    Super Nintendo or Playstation 2?

    When it comes to what was the best system of all time, it usually comes down to 2. There is the Super Nintendo and the Playstation 2 (though a lot of people would argue n64 should be on the list). Both are great systems that deserve the title but we are here to pick one. I will give my vote at the end but let me know what you think. And for your vote you cannot include PS 1 games on the backwards compatible PS 2. It has to be based solely on Playstation 2 titles (but don't worry there are a lot of them).
