Do you love exploring fantastical video game worlds, but hate interacting with strangers? Do you spend enough time pretending to like stupid people at work, and don't want to keep doing it whilst you're gaming? Do you just want to quietly roleplay in peace, without having angry neckbeards telling you to "get gud" until they... Continue Reading →
Monster Hunter World heralds a bright new future for the Monster Hunter franchise.
When I think back to my time spent playing Monster Hunter Tri on my 3DS until the small hours of the morning on a school night, never would I have imagined that my favourite franchise in the whole world would one day arrive on my PC. Yet, here we are. There is no greater joy in... Continue Reading →
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen – there’s more to a quality fantasy-RPG than dungeons and dragons.
As a kid, I always considered myself to be a “die-hard fantasy-RPG junkie.” What I meant by that, of course, was that I had pumped an unholy number of hours into Skyrim but had no interest in anything else the fantasy-RPG world had to offer. Tragic. Alas, I regret to say that I spent my... Continue Reading →
The 3DS era was the Golden Age of Fire Emblem, and you can’t change my mind.
The release of Fire Emblem: Three Houses on the Nintendo Switch was the first time that the Fire Emblem series ever truly went mainstream. Since its release in July 2019, almost three million copies of the game have sold and won multiple awards in the strategy and simulation categories. Despite being such a big hit,...

Evoland 2 is a deliciously nerdy parody of nearly every videogame ever made.
Evoland 2, another random video game I dredged up from the Humble Bundle “Humble Choice” collection for September.

From the outside, Evoland 2 looks to be another fairly... Continue Reading →
Pokemon Sword proves my predictions for Generation 8 were dead wrong. Hallelujah!
Pokemon Pearl was the first game I ever really “bought” myself. It was the first time I ever took my 7 year old ass to the shop, and purchased a game. Ever since that day in in 2007, I’ve been hooked on the Pokemon franchise. I’d watch the cartoon almost every day after school, and... Continue Reading →

Is the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt the Game of the Century?
Let me first address the elephant in the room. I am really late to the Witcher 3 craze. About 5 years late to be exact. And I acknowledge that there is absolutely nothing original or insightful left to say about this game, but damn it, that won’t stop me from trying! The amount of hype... Continue Reading →
Review: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
In August, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, originally released in 2012, is being remastered. I thought now would be a great time to share my thoughts on the title. I found this game in my husbands old PS3 collections, and it caught my attention enough for me to purchase my own copy to play on PC.... Continue Reading →
