Crumbling Infrastructure Is The Real Monster – A Review of “Days Gone” (2019)

It's hard to review Days Gone without somewhat of a bias. After all, the entire experience is based in Central Oregon, where I've spent the last several years of my life. In fact, Bend Studio is right down the road from me, and I was neighbors with one of the employees who was, ostensibly, working … Continue reading Crumbling Infrastructure Is The Real Monster – A Review of “Days Gone” (2019)

Yoshi's Crafted World is the latest in Nintendo's dark horse platformer franchise - a series that I'd argue is slight more maintained than Donkey … Continue reading One Man’s Trash Is A Yoshi’s Treasure – A Review of “Yoshi’s Crafted World” (2019)

Entitlement In Fandom, Or Something

Sekiro: Shadows Die Out came out recently. I'm enjoying it quite a bit! The gameplay is a fascinating evolution of Souls combat, infused with overt Tenchu influences, resulting in what is likely the most compelling stealth-action hybrid I've played. There's also an interesting compromise between From's signature in-world storytelling and cinematic ambitions, making the narrative fun to watch and to immerse one's self … Continue reading Entitlement In Fandom, Or Something
