  • Yazu13 posted a message on the post Middle-earth: Shadow Of War Review.

    Should've reviewed A Hat in Time instead, which came out today. This game appears to be another case of corporate bloat. A sequel doesn't need to be filled with things to do, it needs to be solid and ...

    Cuphead, a side-scrolling shooter with a focus on challenging boss encounters, is a beautiful, hand-written love letter to old-timey cartoons. Inspired by the ragtime and jazz fever-dream of early 20t...

    The Tales series has been a staple of JRPGs (Japanese Role-Playing Games) for a long time, and each installment has been its own story with some familiar series markings. Tales of Berseria feels true ...

    Life gets busy when you're an adult, so I don't have the same amount of free time that I had when I was a kid. Back then, I'd play a game multiple times without batting an eye, but now I have to min...

    When I transitioned from consoles to PC about 6 years ago, it opened my eyes to a lot of magic that I had been blind to. Indie games were still burgeoning at the time, but most of all, were nearly non...

    Gasping for Air

    They Breathe is a very short but disturbing dive into a world of nightmares. What appears innocent at first glance quickly evolves into a brutal and unsettling game of survival as you control a frog t...

    Imagine for a moment, that Lucifer was a game developer and that he made a game so he could steal people's souls. Now imagine that game is called Pony Island. This is the premise of a very clever litt...

  • Yazu13 posted a message in the forum topic Question for those that have played Valkyria Chronicles.... on the Games Discussion board

    The Valkyria Chronicles series ended at the first game for me. Everything after has been subpar, and in the case with Revolution, a blatant cash grab. Revolution is especially heinous because it isn't...

    Night in the Woods is pretty terrific. I ended up playing it twice just to see everything, which I almost never do. Very endearing game.Nier: Automata is pretty mainstream I guess, but it currently ...

    A gem with rough edges

    Scanner Sombre, while flawed, is a delightful experiment. In what it fumbles with in regards to its story execution, it makes up for with a wonderful new gameplay mechanic just begging to be copied by...

  • Yazu13 posted a message in the forum topic Where's the love?. on the Hollow Knight Board board

    PC Gamer finally reviewed it, and gave it a pretty high score. After spending a wonderful 23 hours with this gem, I was surprised it didn't absolutely explode with popularity. Even after all of that t...

  • Yazu13 posted a message in the forum topic Swearing and violent content in What Remains of Edith Finch?. on the PC/Mac/Linux Society board

    @secondlyduck: It never jumped out at me if there was bad language, and as for violence, nothing overt. The ESRB rating says there's blood in it, but it's just fish blood from the scene at the canner...

    It's been a number of years since my last blog on here. We're all a little older, and a little wiser. I still enjoy games like I used to as a kid, though participation in online communities like this ...

    Proteus is an experience that's different for everyone. It's a game that's hard to categorize but no less compelling because of it. The charm it exudes as you wander through it's fantastical world can...
