The Outer Worlds (PC, 2019)

After two playthroughs, I am ready to pass final judgment on The Outer Worlds - and move on. The Outer Worlds is the latest RPG from Obsidian Entertainment. Of the entire Fallout series, their turn with Fallout: New Vegas is likely my favorite. The Outer Worlds stands on its own, but it shares similar gameplay … Continue reading The Outer Worlds (PC, 2019)

Ghost Giant (PSVR, 2019)

In a recent group chat with close friends, the question was asked, “Which Pay-Per-View would sell better: Batman versus Captain America or Goku versus Superman?” Of the four of us, we were evenly split and equally set in our reasons why.  For me, I voted Batman versus Captain America because, to borrow from wrestling, Goku … Continue reading Ghost Giant (PSVR, 2019)

Setting PSVR up optimally is not for the weak willed and is a frustrating experience most of the time. The screen resolution prevents games … Continue reading The P in PSVR Stands for Passion

Mincing Minions in MMOs

I know World of Warcraft deserves much of the blame for popularizing and expanding it, at the very least. Many of you may love them, but I would sincerely pay … Continue reading Mincing Minions in MMOs

Unfinalized Fantasies

I uninstalled Slay the Spire and have free time again! Well, had. After going on a productive run and finishing a few games in January and February, I decided the MMO itch was too string and briefly journeyed back to 1999 on an emulated server for EverQuest. Despite having fun, that only got me wanting … Continue reading Unfinalized Fantasies

I have seen a few discussions pop up on Twitter recently regarding games as social spaces. While I haven’t followed those conversations directly, what I have read makes a lot of sense. If games are social spaces and that’s what draws so many of us to them, then why are MMORPGs, a genre that is … Continue reading /hail %t
