Sometimes we can’t be bothered to put the work into making a video so we commit our thoughts to text and try and pass them off as actual journalisms.

Destiny 2 is a fantastic video game. It took Bungie a while to figure out how to give Destiny a soul beyond the constant grind for loot and Destiny 2 definitely nailed it.
Not only does it have a great main story running through it with interesting missions, it has a cast of characters that are actually enjoyable to listen to and interact with.
I do have one problem with Destiny 2 though. For such a connected experience, it can be pretty dam lonely to play.
Loneliness is an unusual feeling for someone who spends the majority of his time playing…Read More
All the gaming world seems to be talking about right now is loot boxes and microtransactions.
Middle Earth: Shadow of War decided to destroy of all the good will the first game created by letting you spend real money to buy friendly orcs… yes, that’s a real sentence that gaming in 2017 allows you to write, and now it looks like Star Wars Battlefront 2 is going to suffer the same fate.

This list includes a large portion of games that have been in early access for a long time. Games like Rust, which have been in early access since 2013.
Lately these games have been getting a lot of heat for never having a full release or for adding DLC to a game that hasn’t even come out yet. But what if it is better for these games to stay in early access…Read More
Twenty years ago the world lost a great man: Gunpei Yokoi. Gunpei Yokoi was the designer of the original Gameboy and a key piece in Nintendo’s early success.

Besides the Gameboy he also had a number of other notable achievements, as well as helping Nintendo to become a household name.
Nearly ten years before the Gameboy, Gunpei Yokoi created the Game & Watch, which was Nintendo’s first handheld console. The Game…Read More
What with the brilliant TV adaptation of American Gods and an impressive return to the small rural town of Twin Peaks, this has been a great year for televised magical realism.
This has got me thinking: what about video games?
What role does the genre of magical realism have in gaming, and why isn’t there more of it? Before answering this question, however, it might be sensible to offer some form of a definition for this hazy and often contested genre.
What is Magical Realism?
Broadly speaking, magical realism is a subgenre of fantasy that refers to works of literature and films where fantastical…Read More

The PlayStation 3 is a relatively new console so there isn’t a lot of information regarding rare games on the system. Most of the lists I’ve found just annoyed me because they included special editions which were meant to be limited releases in the first place.

I’ve also had to split this list into 3 parts as it…Read More
