Zero Escape: The Nonary Games – Let’s Begin

Okay, so first off, I never played any of the original Zero Escape games. I may have tried the demo for Virtue’s Last Reward on 3DS but that’s as far as my experience with this series goes. What this means is I’m not in the best place to make any sort of comparisons...

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight Review – So Close

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight Review – So Close

Truth be told, I wasn’t even aware that Momodora was a series until I started looking up developer and publisher info for tags to add to this review. I’m saying this upfront because I have no clue how fans of the series might receive Momodora: Reverie Under the...

Horizon: Zero Dawn Review – All of My Yes

Horizon: Zero Dawn Review – All of My Yes

As with anyone who likes video games, I have a tendency to place more importance on some elements than others. It’s a good day when I get to play something that ticks two or three boxes on my list of Stuff Rob Thinks is The Best ™, and there have been way more...

The Last Guardian Review – Ico of the Colossus

The Last Guardian Review – Ico of the Colossus

Going in, I knew it would be impossible for The Last Guardian to meet expectations. This is a game that’s meant to stand with fan favorites Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, which is no small task even for a project that hasn’t been in development (hell) for close to a...

Lara Croft GO Review – A Ponderous Port

Lara Croft GO Review – A Ponderous Port

Son of a… okay, okay, first thing’s first. Lara Croft Go is a good game at its core. A great game, in fact. I beat it in its entirety when it first came out on mobile devices, and I was happy to see how it might do on a bigger (I mean physically larger) system....

Farming Simulator 17 Review: Incremental Agriculture

Farming Simulator 17 Review: Incremental Agriculture

Farming Simulator is the sort of series that I never understood until I was finally able to play it for the first time a couple of years back. I still don’t understand the fervor behind brand-name farm equipment or the interest anyone has in buying DLC packs that add...

XCOM 2: Welcome Back, Commander

XCOM 2: Welcome Back, Commander

The original XCOM – I’m talking about Enemy Unknown in this case, not UFO Defense – was a spectacular reimagining of my all time favorite strategy game that cut out all the unnecessary bits and polished up all the awesome stuff to make, arguably, another...

Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains Review

Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains Review

At first I was reluctant when everybody kept telling me to check out Attack on Titan. Then a friend made me sit down and watch the first episode and I just didn’t get it. After a while I decided to give the series another shot, and I’m glad I did because, as it turns...

Flame Over, I Love You

Flame Over, I Love You

Dear Flame Over, I’m writing to let you know that you drive me nuts, crazy, insane, freaking mental, and other similar expressions. You’re so cute, cartoony, and unassuming, but I know the real you. Beneath that goofy exterior is a monstrously difficult roguelike. It...
