A curious little game. Don’t feel bad if you’ve never played this game, or even heard of it outside of any of the Smash Bros. games. Earthbound is in the unique position of being a game that got nowhere commercially when it was initially released in the U.S. in 1995, and was even panned critically […]Read more "Grading Earthbound"
I don’t hate them, but they’re not my thing. Here’s why. Much like how I somewhat knew what to expect from the game itself, when I penned my review for What Remains of Edith Finch I had a rough idea of what the reaction would be.

And wouldn’t you know it, it’s coming out later this year too! They really know how to make a Smash fan happy […]Read more "I Have Words On Smash Bros. Characters I Want"
Silly, silly government. I’m going to be bundling two different topics into this one blog, but they both revolve around government legislation (or interference, as I prefer to call it) on video games. It seems this beloved game industry cannot stay out of the government’s crosshairs over the last few months between loot boxes and […]Read more "I Have Words On Video Games and Government Legislation"
