I wrote about 1,500 words too many on The Last of Us. I hope you hate it. [OPINION] THE LAST OF US IS AN ENGAGING STORY, BUT I HATE IT
Spoiler Alert: I spoil the end of Tiny Echo in this post. Just a heads up. I’ve mentioned it before, but one of my favorite parts about scouring my backlog for new games to try is actually getting a chance to try games I didn’t even realize I had. See, a lot of the games I … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #16 – Tiny Echo”
So, it’s been about a year since I stopped buying games. I’ve mentioned this a few times, but that’s because I can’t help but mention it. After buying hundreds of games and not playing them, it blows my mind that I’ve gone so long just playing games on my backlog. I’ve averaged at least one … Continue reading “A Breaking My Backlog Addendum”
Over the past week, or so, I’ve played a number of games from my backlog that were either really short, or I just didn’t want to spend anymore time playing them. Unfortunately, that gives me very little material with which to write a full post. As such, I’ve decided to take a post to bang … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #15 – Mini-Reviews”
It’s a little late, but that’s because I am still trying to readjust to editorial deadlines and schedules while writing for another site. So, there’s that. Anyway, you can read my last article for my Halloween spooky gameplaying over at Rogue’s Portal.
Please Note: In this review, I spoil the ending of goose game. I know, by now, it’s pretty hard to spoil a game that has become a cultural phenomenon in the way that the goose game has, but here’s your warning: You are now warned. My journey to obtain the Untitled Goose Game was a … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #14 – The Untitled Goose Game (Halloween Special, Part 3 of 4)”
So, in an effort to do something special for the spookiest of all seasons, I decided to write a few pieces this month about a few of the horror games that currently litter my backlog. I started a bit back with Sanitarium, and since then, I have started Last of Us, Amnesia: The Dark Descent … Continue reading “A Brief on Horror Narrative and Amnesia (Halloween Special, Part 2 of 4)”
Writing about a game like Sanitarium is always an interesting prospect. It’s an old game, having come out 20 years ago. It’s a genre (adventure) that has fallen out of vogue considerably in that time. And it treats its subject matter (disability and deformity) in extremely problematic ways. Honestly, it’s possible that it’s a game best … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #13 – Sanitarium (Halloween Special, Part 1 of 4)”
Let’s continue this new tradition. It gives me a chance to talk about the things that have been spinning in my game systems lately, if for no other reason than to keep me focused in my writing over the next few weeks. As with last time, let’s start with games I’ve been playing and some … Continue reading “What Have I Been Playing Lately? (September 2019 Edition)”
Hi. I have some thoughts on Final Fantasy XV, and I’ve written them over here on Rogues Portal. Please go and read it. I hope you hate it.
