The Division 2 – Geoff’s Thoughts

To be fair, after playing The Division 2 (henceforth “Div2“) private and public betas, I didn’t think I would shell out nearly $100 for the basic game package. I felt like I had probably done most of the things that one could do, including the PVP aspects. But then…I got bored, and i...

The Division 2 – Jaz’s Thoughts

I fell in love with The Division. Running around the empty city of New York, trudging through snow in the coolest of outfits and firing guns that felt so good. Seriously, if The Division did one thing right, it was how awesome the weapons felt. The Division 2 takes what its predecessor did well and adds a l...

Cat Lady

The one thing that Cat Lady had going for it right from the start (in my opinion) is its proclivity to name animals after things that they definitely are not. Case in point, my first dog would have been called “Bean Curd” were it not for my parents putting their foot down. I also called the neig...

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is a first-person, survival horror, shooter set in a post apocalyptic Russia, and is the third installment in the series. The Metro games are based on the series of Metro books by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky. I haven’t played the previous titles in the Metro series or read the books, so I ...

Far Cry New Dawn

Far Cry New Dawn kinda feels like it was originally going to be DLC and then Ubisoft was like, “what the hell, make it a full game!” You could say it’s $80 for “more of the same,” but let’s be honest, all Far Crys are just more of the same. Ubisoft is just really good at ...

Lost Sock

I’m no stranger to laundry. However, the way I play newly-released Lost Sock (iOS) by developer Moonstripes would suggest otherwise. In the game, you control the spins of a washing machine trying to get as many revolutions as possible without losing any socks. You st/rt off with a basic pair of socks....

What in the World is “Carmen Sandiego”?

Netflix’s recent release of Carmen Sandiego may trigger excitement in all those 80s babies who grew up with Brøderbund’s original release of the game. If you missed it, you also missed out on the 8-bit version of our red-headed villain and being called “gumshoe” by foreign strangers....

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls 3 came out in 2016. For those unfamiliar with the series, Dark Souls is a challenging action role-playing game made by the Japanese studio FromSoftware. It’s the brainchild of Hidetaki Miyazaki (no not that Miyazaki), a different genius) and a series I’ve invested many hours each titl...

Spider-Man: Silver Lining

Silver Lining starts off like the previous DLCs. You’re slowly introduced to the main storyline and all the side missions. Except this time, you know immediately that this is going to be better than Turf Wars. Hammerhead’s men have been nicking Sable’s stuff, and so Sable appears to take i...

Relive your childhood on the PlayStation Classic

When I first heard about the PlayStation Classic, I thought “Oh, hey, that’s pretty cool.” But I wasn’t sure if it was going to be worth getting and, to be honest, I didn’t think many people would be into it.  It just looks like a quick money grab. But when I saw me and my frie...

Old Man’s Journey: Vacation-Mode Activated

Suspended somewhere between the realm of “game” and “visual novel”, Old Man’s Journey delivers an experience that you’ll probably be expecting based on the title alone. Playing as an old man, your journey starts when a letter arrives. Donning a backpack, the old man’s encounter with places and things sparks...
