Destiny 2 Beta- Thoughts So Far

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Today marked the beginning of the Destiny 2 early access beta playtest for Playstation gamers who pre-ordered the game and I've now done pretty much everything the beta currently has on offer with all the classes and subclasses currently available. Having logged Lord-only-knows how many hours on the first Destiny, I had mixed feelings about the prospect of Destiny 2. The original Destiny was a great first-person shooter but a mediocre MMO, and I wasn't sure how many of its issues would or could be addressed by a sequel.

Zodiac Age: Final Verdict

Thursday, July 13, 2017

You may remember that about a year ago I talked about playing the demo for Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. You might also remember that my feelings on the game were somewhat mixed and that I wondered why this, of all the Final Fantasy games, had been slated for remastering. Well, the game is here, I've logged enough hours to feel like I can talk about it fairly and intelligently, so now I'm going to try and do that.

Getting Back Into Space with Elite Dangerous

Thursday, July 6, 2017

It's been a while since I really made a commitment to learn the ins and outs of a space flight game. I suppose you could call Kerbal Space Program a space flight sim, so perhaps it hasn't been as long as I thought. The last Sci-Fi space sim I really got into was X: Reunion, a huge and complex game with tons of systems to explore and a huge wealth of options for players to explore and really make the game their own. In looking for a new game in the same idiom, I've found myself waffling between Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous but a recent Steam Summer Sale and reports of a fascinating alien presence in Elite Dangerous finally tipped the scales for me

Getting Pumped with VR

Tuesday, July 4, 2017

Gamers don’t have the most flattering stereotypes when it comes to physique. A known sedentary pursuit, gaming doesn’t often help its players stay svelte. There are exceptions of course, but the physically undemanding nature of games can’t honestly be denied. There are many examples of developers trying a variety of techniques to keep players moving and motivated by their entertainment.

The Latest Adventure For Dungeons and Dragons Goes back to its Roots

Thursday, June 22, 2017

If you ask any veteran D&D player about the most unforgiving or harrowing adventure they've had, you'll likely hear Tomb of Horrors mentioned more than once. Originally published in 1978, the Tomb of Horrors is one of the most well known dungeon written by D&D progenitor, Gary Gygax. It is an unforgiving labyrinth of traps and monsters that spelled the end of innumerable characters. It was feared by players, revered by DMs and known even by those who didn't play D&D. And now it is back again in two forms for 5th edition.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Our cup runneth over with new Dishonored games. There were a solid 4 years betwixt Dishonored (2012) and Dishonored 2 (2016), so it’s a bit of a surprise that we are seeing another standalone Dishonored game so soon after 2’s release late last year.
