Looooooot Craaaaaates.  

Since No Man’s Sky came out, I’ve been thinking about how much damage hype does to the video games we play, and our perception of them. No Man’s Sky is hardly an isolated case, but it’s definitely a good example to use, because by the time it was actually released, nobody was judging the game […]

No Man’s Sky has fizzled out for me now (and by now I mean last week sometime). While I spent some eight hours just exploring documenting my home planet, each successive planet captured my attention and imagination less and less as the seams of the engine running the game became more and more apparent. It […]

Just shove it in there

Uh… huh. Doesn’t Konami already have a survival horror franchise? Wouldn’t it have made more sense to take a shit there instead?

FYI

I am aware of the large handful of third party websites people can use to try and hook up with other Destiny players for in-game activities. I have no doubt they are an effective method of circumventing the game’s lack of tools for raidmatching in-game. My primary point, however, is in a game like Destiny […]

Expansion shmexpansion

August 17, 2016 by Tim

I really enjoyed Destiny when it came out. It was repetitive, a bit shallow and light on content, but damn if it didn’t feel good shooting stuff. Bungie did a great job making the weapons feel weighty and powerful, and it was fun to shoot, reload, and shoot. I stopped playing because eventually, even the […]

No Man’s Sky

August 12, 2016 by Tim

No Man’s Sky is not a very good video game. It is, however, a brilliant and enjoyable experience. I say it’s not a good game because once you dig down into it, there really isn’t much to it. You have a little bit of resource collection, a little bit of mostly-useless stuff to craft, and […]

Brutal

August 5, 2016 by Tim

I love Marvel and the Marvel cinematic universe. Getting to see all of the comic book characters I grew up with come to the big screen in such a way is a dream I never thought I’d see realized when I was a kid. My wife enjoys the films as well, and we’ve dressed up […]

Rimworld

by Tim

The game is Rimworld. And I’m hooked. It started simply enough; a group of three random fools crash-landed on a planet, trying to survive with only their basic skills and wits. Chop down some trees, build a little hut. Nothing fancy, four walls and a roof. Then a couple of beds, for sleeping and treating […]

Monster Negotiator

July 22, 2016 by Tim

I love me the Monster Huntering. I’d place it as one of my favorite game franchises/ridiculous time sinks. Top ten, easily. It is such a timesink, though, that you spend so much time hunting the same monsters over and over again to craft weapons and armor (the repetition is something I enjoy; learning a monster’s […]
