Kingdom Hearts 3: Review

I have been a fan of the franchise ever since the release of Kingdom Hearts. I went through a very difficult time in my life when that game came out and it was my escape mechanism. When I got my hands on Kingdom Hearts II, I was amazed and it remains one of my favorite video games to the day. Keeping in mind that I haven’t played all of the spin-off games (which are actually relevant to the story, but we’ll cover that in a bit), I knew that going into KH3 I would need some sort of refresher. Two hours worth of lore videos later, I was ready to boot up that disc.

Far Cry New Dawn: Review

When Far Cry New Dawn was announced at The Game Awards, I was very intrigued to go back to Hope County about 20 years after the end of Far Cry 5. This was a chance for them to provide closure to an otherwise flat ending, as well as provide fans of the series more reason to enjoy the open-world action that Far Cry is known for.

Why it's OK to Play "Old" Games

How many times have you heard, “What? You mean you’ve never played XYZ game? That’s impossible!” or something along those lines. While I am guilty of saying that from time to time, it usually prompts an eye roll from me when said because it’s not realistic to have had access to every game while growing up.

Who Ya Got: Leon Kennedy vs. Claire Redfield

The remake of Resident Evil 2 is only a week away and the hype is almost too much to handle. After spending my brief 30 minutes with the “One-Shot Demo,” my only complaint about the game is that I couldn’t play more of it. As soon as I entered my first dark corridor I was immediately overcome with nostalgia, as the memories of playing the original game with my older brother in the basement of our childhood home came rushing back.

Tabletop Games Top Video Games on Kickstarter

This data that’s presented certainly gives some food for thought; why is it that people are more willing to back tabletop games rather than video games? Part of it stems from it being that when many tabletop projects launch on Kickstarter, they have usually already finished developing their game.
