Game Review: Gone Home

I’m one of those gamers that tends to explore as much as possible. I delve into every nook and cranny looking for loot. I’m also drawn to games with compelling stories. Oh, and I was 17 in 1995. Needless to say, Gone Home was a game that was looking right up my alley. With all that said, I was a little hesitant to get too excited about this game based on my not-so-awesome experience with Life is Strange.

Game Review: Rise of the Tomb Raider

Have we talked lately about how I feel about this franchise? You should say ‘yes’ unless you want me to go on ad nauseum about how much I love Tomb Raider.

Flashback Friday: Red Dead Redemption

I’m sad that I didn’t play this when it first came out. Back when I had more free time to get lost in more than one epic world per year (Fallout 4 has taken that energy up this year) I would’ve played this for hours and hours and hours. It is such a well done game that’s fun to play, it’s a shame that I’m having a hard time keeping more motivated to play it. I WANT to play it more and go get lost in this beautiful world, but with limited time available to play games, I’m not sure I want to invest it all in this. (more…)
