Obduction Review

Played on Windows
Also Available on macOS and PlayStation 4.

25 years ago, in 1993, Cyan released Myst and it was unique, impressive, and something truly different for a video game. It’s an experience where the player could explore a number of unique worlds and had to solve puzzles to advance a story and open up new locations It was so successful it spawned a number of sequels turning into a very powerful franchise. 25 years later, I’m playing Obduction, also from Cyan, which came out a couple of years ago. So how is it?

Yakuza 0 Review

Played on Windows
Also available on PlayStation 4, (Playstation 3 in Japan Only)

I’ve been very excited to write this review for quite a while. The Yakuza series has been on my radar since I played Yakuza 4 in 2016. I liked the experience but I had some reservations about that game. It was a solid experience, but there were four characters which was a bit much, however, the game itself shined and the gameplay was enjoyable. I just wanted to see another game in that same style. However, time, money, and switching to PC/Steam made it hard to return to the series. So I waited and hoped for another opportunity. Earlier this year Sega finally gave me what I was asking for. Yakuza finally came to PC and Steam with Yakuza 0. I bought it on launch and after having put in 70 hours into the game I’m here to tell you what I thought of it.

Exapunks review

Played on Windows
Early Access

Zachtronics is my spirit animal of the video game industry. There’s something about Zach Barth’s games that make me really excited to play them. I’ve owned every game he’s put out on Steam. I still remember when EXAPUNKS was announced, I saw just the letters “Zach” based and got excited, so was that excitement warranted?

Humble Monthly Bundle Early Unlock Wrap Up for September 2018

Hello again,

Welcome to my wrap up of the Humble Monthly Bundle for September 2018.

This month there were three games again in the Early Unlock system. However there was a little twist, in that a previous month’s game (October 2017) I’ve reviewed the three games, Staxel, Sniper Elite 4, and Tales of Berseria as you can see below and will discuss Rise of the Tomb Raider as well. You can read the reviews through these links, as well as see the videos below. If you prefer videos consider subscribing to the Youtube channel, as that’s the fastest way to learn about next month’s Humble Monthly Bundle Reviews as well as anything else I’m playing.

Tales of Berseria Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on PlayStation 4 (PlayStation 3 JP only)

So we finally end the Humble Monthly Bundle for September 2018, with one of the longest games I’ve ever played. This is Tales of Berseria.

So I published a review of Tales of Zesteria on May 5th, 2018 and I was a bit savage. It was a good game and I recommended it, but it had so many flaws that I pointed most of them out. Tales of Berseria is a follow up to it and was published the following year, only about 18 months after Zesteria, and for such a large game that should be a big warning sign. Yet, that’s what Bandai Namco did, so it’ up to me to find out if it paid off?
