As with any normal person I view my time as precious and as such I do not go out of my way to find terrible games. This is why my “Worst Game of the Year” is often scaled back to worst game I’ve played compared to the others.Now, since I tend to only play games I consider good/great this can leave even good games as…
G’day TAY. So our current challenge is to write about our worst games of 2017 and I looked at it and though: did I play a bad game this year? 2017 was an amazing year especially at the Nintendo side of things. So what did I play anyway? Since I keep to one game a month this should be easy:
2017: the year full of excellent releases in video games. 2017: not every game that came out was perfect because that’d be ridiculous, much harder on our wallets, and we don’t all share blanket collective opinions and likes on what’s good or not. So! Guess what we’ll be talking about for our next theme week?
This may come as a shock to some of you but I really did not like this game. Before I tell what game it is I would first like to preface this with the fact that I love the series that both worked to make this game be a thing. I am a long time fan of them both so why couldn’t I enjoy this spin off? I don’t know but the…
From Gaia to a killing game. From London to the Farplane. From the meditative hunting of 900 korok seeds to the quiet expanses of space—video game worlds serve as places to reflect on life in ways we’re not expecting, and engage in thrilling, creative fantasy.
London has hosted my travel adventures on three occasions. Well, 10 times really, if we’re counting the ones I went on with the good Professor Layton, Luke, and Katrielle.
For a lot of gamers, the perfect video game world is probably big, colorful, and full of things to do. Things come to mind like Hyrule’s Castle Town or a hub city in an MMO. However, for me, my perfect video game level is a cramp, grey, and at times empty of things to do. My perfect video game world is the Normandy.
Last week, I covered three of my favorite places in Xenoblade Chronicles. The short write-up got a great response, and there’s always more gorgeous environments to talk about in a game like this one. Without much further ado, let’s take another brief look at some of this game’s best areas.
Spira, the world of Final Fantasy X is very much like an old fairy tale. Bright colors bleed across the landscape from far and wide. But at its core, it’s rotten; and in the case of Spira, it’s rotten in every sense of the word.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could live a peaceful existence in our favorite game world? Unless, of course, it has tons of random encounters and tricky platforming levels.
Xenoblade Chronicles takes place on two massive gods, two titans locked in a mortal struggle between nature and machine. The world is built entirely for the story of the games, and it includes some stunning reveals. Let’s take a look at some of the most amazing places in one of the most amazing worlds in games.
The Autumnal Theme Week is upon us, and the request is to talk about your perfect video game world. I pondered for a bit about this. Running through my list of favourite games, remembering any world that really jumped out at me. The one that stood out? Gaia, the world from Final Fantasy IX.
Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy was an early release for the PlayStation 2 in 2001. Its impact was huge, with the game (and sequels) dictating how platforming adventures would develop throughout the PlayStation 2 and Xbox era. It redefined the formula which platforming games had taken in the PSX era, with the…
Recently, a lot of stuff has been going on that’s made things very difficult. A student at my school took his own life, and while I never personally knew him, seeing people I love being so affected by this has been incredibly difficult. My girlfriend and I got into the largest fight we’ve ever had, and I don’t know if…
Summer’s approaching and thoughts of the oncoming videogame drought are filling our heads.
After pouring over video game releases dating back to the turn of century, I’ve come to the following conclusion: The idea of a “summer video game drought” ‘tis but a myth!
Last Summer, I went from inhaling power-ups and being a shape-shifting, cutesy mecha nightmare as Kirby in Planet Robobot to keeping the company of questionable, spirited friends. I’d like to continue the tradition of the latter once the warm clutches of 2017's Summer take hold. Yo-kai Watch 2, here I come.
Never in my life have I ever experienced a “new video game” drought. By this I mean lamenting that there aren’t any new games coming out for a long period. I could barely wrap my head around the concept and I think that has to do with my upbringing. Warning: This piece is going to consist of my thoughts as they come.…
As we move into the summer months and finally put the winter behind us things in the gaming world tend to slow down as those in the real world pick up. For many is is a bad thing, for myself this year. Ya not so much. Why, because it gives everyone time to sit back and finally play all those games over the past six…
