• Launch Failed: Too Many Launchers

    We probably could have seen it coming, but Bethesda confirmed this past week that Fallout 76 would launch exclusively on their Bethesda.net launcher. There are plenty of valid reasons why they would do this, like better analytics, and avoiding having to pay 30% to Steam for each sale. From...
  • Halo Is (Hopefully) Preparing For a Return to Form

    There’s a moment during the final boss in Dark Souls III when the fight takes on a more personal tone for longtime fans. At this moment, the music from the original fight with Gwyn plays, specifically the piano notes, and players just lose it to these “three simple notes.”...
  • Nostalgia and Legacy Can’t Make Dark Souls: Remastered a Good Game In 2018

    I need to be clear that I came to the Soulsborne series late. I dabbled in Demon’s Souls, killing a handful of bosses and did the same to a lesser extent in the original run of Dark Souls. It was around that time that I realized I wasn’t ready...
  • God of War’s Most Important Story Beat is a Tale of Father and Son

    There are a few things to be expected when you start playing a God of War game. God slaying, vengeance, brutal kills, and quick-time events increasingly in-depth combat. What I didn’t expect was for a God of War game to make me feel something other than awe. The series...
  • FarCry 5 Does More With Less

    A lot has been said about how FarCry 5 has handled its premise, and that is for good reason. There are too many opportunities to have done more and make this something special in a big way. Even still, Ubisoft did manage to deliver a few moments that really...

    We get it Sony. The PlayStation 4 is very popular and is bringing in a lot of money for your once struggling corporation. We understand that you still feel like you have something to prove after the PlayStation 3 that you’re back and the biggest name in games (though...
  • Shame No More: Fire Emblem Awakening

    Strategy video games make me anxious. Whether it is an RTS or a strategy RPG, losing units stresses me out. I guess I care too much? But the Fire Emblem series is always one that I have been interested in regardless of this. Most of it had to do...
  • Almost Three Years Later, I Found Somewhere I Haven’t Been in Bloodborne

    I played a lot of Bloodborne when it came out. It was the first game that was blatantly hard but scratched an itch I never knew needed scratching. While I originally purchased it purely because I wanted more exclusive stuff to play on my PS4, I was hooked from...
  • My Experience at a Boston Uprising Watch Party

    As a member of the Boston Uprising Discord, there was an announcement for a watch party at a barcade north of where I live for the final day of stage one competition, so I rounded up my wife and a couple of friends and headed up there. We got...
