Total War: Warhammer – Impressions

This is not a review. There will be one, in depth, when I have had enough time with the game, but this is just my first impression after a weekend with it. Perhaps the most telling thing is that I had to tear myself away from Total War: Warhammer in order to submit this in time. It is big, it is fun, and it is a breath of fresh air for the Total War franchise. Total War has always been separated i...[Read More]

Overwatch: Blizzards Next Step

Long ago I considered myself a rather big fan of the monolith that is Blizzard, back when the Warcraft series existed without the “World of” and the company themselves had a reputation as crafters of great, well told, contained experiences within the then younger games medium. Today however I’ve drifted from the title of fan and often sit back with little more than a nod of appreciation and ...[Read More]

Video Games That Should Definitely Be Made Into Films

For almost as long as video games have existed, there have been games based off popular movies. Atari’s 1982 E.T game was bad, rushed for Christmas release, and set the tone for decades of mediocrity for games based off films. Unfortunately, this translation of beloved entertainment into bland pointlessness is a two way street, and the past is littered with terrible movies looking to make a quick ...[Read More]

Game Vivisection: Why Didn’t They Just Call It Monster Hunt-oh wait

A short while ago I felt a yearning. My life had been ruled by an endless repeat of shooting aliens and grabbing blue hexagonal prisms as I replayed Destiny in order to properly assess its value after almost a year off in rehab. Now I can safely say it was a mistake. So burnt out I was, with the Cryptarch’s stupid giggles as I bought him another engram and he laughed at my dejected face when it tu...[Read More]

Monster Hunter Generations for the West

A new Monster Hunter is on the way to the west, and for once in a long time, it’s not an ultimate edition! Monster Hunter Generations, or Monster Hunter Cross in Japan, has just been announced for perhaps the quickest release internationally Monster Hunter has seen to date. Ironically I feel divided about this long desired news, we finally get to have our cake and eat it the same as Japan, now wit...[Read More]

Game Vivisection: Destined for Disappointment

Yes, I know, I missed last week. I have a special rant here as recompense. Don’t kill me please. What’s this big, special rant about you ask? Ever cautious as you fire up the whipper-snipper for possible flensing. Well, back in 2013 E3 had me hooked on one particular offering, the sci-fi space opera sure to be 10/10 then known as Destiny. Of course, the promise of limitless exploration, awesome gu...[Read More]

Pokémon Sun & Moon – New Starter Pokémon

Details about the eagerly awaited new Pokémon game, Sun and Moon, came out of hiding today as we got a look at some first time gameplay, new locations and the announcement of the new starter Pokémon along with the respective Sun and Moon Legendaries. I admit I was pretty excited for this during the initial reveal, but enough time has passed that I’ve settled back into a calmer interest for what’s ...[Read More]

Just a Thought: Dark Souls 3 is Secretly Terrible

There is a fable by Hans Christian Andersen called The Emperor’s New Clothes, I’m sure you’ve heard of it. The story is that two weavers promise to make the emperor a garment that is invisible to anyone who is stupid or unfit for their position. The problem is not that everyone is convinced he is actually wearing the magical garb, but that it has an in-built defense mechanism, so anyone who points...[Read More]

Diary of a Gamer Girl: Tomb Raider (2013)

I will level with you all here – after I had binge watched my way through Real Housewives of Orange County and Beverly Hills – maybe also a little bit of Vanderpump Rules – don’t judge me! They are practically documentaries #learnedgamer – I asked Jas what game I should play. I attempted Super Mario Bros but to be honest those pieces of shit can be really infuriating! The next suggestion was...[Read More]

Persona 5 Release Date Announced

Last night the long taunting countdown clock on Atlus’s Persona 5 home page crawled to its inevitable fate at zero, and with it brought us a live stream and a whole boatload of information. The live stream itself was a mix of live action and game footage, as a reporter stood outside the famous Tokyo Tower while the cast of Persona 5 were supposedly conducting a heist during the stream. It was a co...[Read More]
