The First Time: Spyro

Christmas 1998 was a big one for my family. Sure, it wasn’t snowing, and I wasn’t old enough to drink yet, but this was the year that we got a PlayStation. My only console experience before this was with my original recipe GameBoy and a few…

Monster Hunter World Review

There’s a lot to be said for games that don’t hold your hand every step of the way. Honestly, I prefer them over the majority of modern games, with their endless tutorials for the most basic of tasks. Monster Hunter as a series has never…

Stardew Valley Review

So hey, why have I played over 100 hours of a farming simulator since December? I mean, I never liked Harvest Moon. I got bored with Animal Crossing after a while. Minecraft and Terraria held my attention for, quite literally, a single…

Knack 2 review

There’s a lot to love in Knack 2. Nobody asked for it, nobody wanted it, but they’ve done some good stuff and there’s a charm here that was sorely lacking in the original; great level design, tricky puzzles, nice graphics, and a concept…

Destiny 2 review

I went in to Destiny 2 almost completely blind; I never played the first installment, and had briefly looked up the general plot shortly before my copy arrived. My first impression after playing the sequel? Man, I wish I had played the…
