Impressions and reviews on a wide variety of G33kD0m

maxresdefaultThere has been hype building around this one since it was initially previewed in 2013. The

hype train of the gaming world is one of those things that is an animal unto itself, and the

fervor that has built and built over the past couple of years is one of those things that took

on a momentum all its own. Whenever that happens, the entire situation around the web

becomes heavily polarized. Now, rather than diving into that debate and taking sides with

good long look at what indie developed Hello Games has provided the gaming community

in No Man’s Sky. Continue reading

DARKSOUL_facebook_miniAs I have shown before, I am a fan of the work of FromSoftware. I wrote up the last entry of theirs a little while back, and now that the final installment of the Dark Souls series has been loosed into the wild, I figured I would take a short break from my time engrossed in it to give you all a little review. The Dark Souls series first hit systems back in 2011, and there have been a number of challenging and entertaining entries since then. Rather than run through the history of things, let’s look at the latest and final entry.

DC has done a solid job over the last few years with their direct to video animated features. Granted, there have been exceptions here and there and the stories just don’t work now and again, but Justice League vs. Teen Titans isn’t one of the exceptions.
