“You either like it, or you don’t”; I’m tired of hearing this explanation of Death Stranding’s appeal, so I decided to write about why I love it.
I’ve been finding that I’ve been oddly focused with my gaming time lately, and have knocked a few things off my backlog. This is pretty uncharacteristic for me, because I feel like I’m pretty resistant to just closing the door on things; I’ll usually pick up new RPGs impulsively, and with each one of them […]
I always find it fascinating when the release of something coincides with a general cultural need. With the COVID-19 quarantine still going on, it was pretty great to see Animal Crossing: New Horizons come out right at a time when anxiety is high and people need something to do.
Spoiler alert Warning: While I don’t go into any specific story spoilers in this post, there are some images from the game that might be considered spoilers. I’ve probably started this blog three or four times now, and for some reason, nothing really seems to stick. I mean, how do you sum up a series […]

Battle Royale games make me feel old.
I’ve been playing a lot of Slay the Spire lately.

Ironically, I wish I could be doing this with […]
It feels like forever since I wrote about Artifact, the Valve-produced card game set in the world of Dota 2. Since then, the game was kind of this specter that hung over Dota fans, since they didn’t really know what to expect from it. We saw personalities and people we looked up to rumbling behind-the-scenes […]
RPGs are my favorite genre, and I wanted to write about them from a more zoomed-out perspective than just dealing with their stories. Also, I wanted an excuse to post the “Rich Rump” picture. I’ve become more cognizant of what people call “gameplay loops” lately. They’re pretty simple: you figure out what the main cycle […]
