Finding the Stars: A Review of the Starfinder RPG

Pathfinder is one of my favorite tabletop RPGs. It has a really rich and deep setting with tons of evolving content and options for building your games. Paizo, the publisher, does a really good job with it. I’m also a huge Star Trek fan, so when I found out Paizo was making “Pathfinder in Space” I immediately pre-ordered everything that was available. I pulled together a group of friends and scheduled our first game of

Efficacy of Exclusivity in Gaming

Why in the actual heck are exclusive titles still being released in the gaming world? Having exclusive titles is not a new concept, but it is, in many ways, quite archaic. It made sense in 1997 when development studios on opposite sides of the world had limited means of communication or collaboration and no simple method of porting their games across platforms, but it’s now twenty-freaking-eighteen. If you can find hacked ports and emulators on

Gaming in a Galaxy Far Far Away

star wars 1313

There's no doubt that the potential for content and development for Star Wars is at an all-time high. With new movie, TV, book, cartoon, and comic announcements being released every other day, the currently known number of games forecasted in this vast universe seems a bit underwhelming. Let’s take a look at what we do know and maybe speculate a bit about what we don’t. Aside from the continuation of Lego and The Old Republic Online,

A Friend In Need… Of A Little Ambition | Kirby Star Allies Review

  So, this is Kirby, but I’m sure you already knew that. The repeat savior of Dreamland with an insatiable appetite has been around for years, traveling on adventures through different worlds and across genres, from action platformers to high-speed racing to endless rollers. Regardless of play style, the Kirby series prides itself on simple and straightforward gameplay with an “easy to play, difficult to master” philosophy. I’ve personally always been a Kirby fan since the

Investigating IGN’s Top 100 Games of All Time

ign top 100 games

Recently, IGN released their Top 100 Video Games of All Time list. Given that IGN is widely considered an authority, if not THE authority, on the subject of video games, I’d like to take a closer look. I won’t be picking apart the list or countering their opinions with my own, rather, I’m going to dive in and search for any correlations between the games and what lends to their success. First off, let me

Beat Saber | Early Access Impressions

As a fairly casual Star Wars fan, I've always loved the idea of the lightsaber, a beam of pure plasma energy capable of cutting through almost anything. At the same time, I've always felt something vital was missing from the series. All this time and it took until 2018 for someone to finally ask the question we've all been wondering. What if, instead of fighting each other head-on, the Sith Lords and Jedi Masters settled

Skin It To Win It | Monster Hunter: World Review

“Choose your target, track it down. Quickly, now, pick up the pace. Bash it, slash it, break its crown. And wear the pieces on your face.”   That, my friends, is the Monster Hunter series in a nutshell. The general flow of the franchise consists of racing the clock to track down a vicious beast and engage in a long, exciting battle. Victory rewards you with items, typically broken or skinned off your prey, to fashion new

Ubisoft Giveth and Ubisoft Taketh Away | A Review of Far Cry 5

far cry 5 review

Ubisoft Giveth and Ubisoft Taketh Away: A Review of Far Cry 5 I have a love-hate relationship with the Far Cry series.  I didn’t much care for the first one; I skipped the second one; I actually really enjoyed the frat bro to Rambo story of the third one; I enjoyed 75 percent of the fourth one, until I realized I was pretty much playing the same game with a slightly better antagonist; I skipped the
