    It seems like I chose a good time to shut down my micro stories, as a pretty cool opportunity just fell into my lap. It’s likely going to devour a lot of my spare time, which is funny considering it’s reaching a point where I am writing about video games so much that I...

    Closing Time for Cover Band

    This is normally the day you would be reading one of my pieces of flash fiction. That’s not going to happen today, or likely any day soon. Largely, I haven’t been all that impressed with the work that I’ve been putting out for them lately. To be honest, they’ve been garbage for a while....

    Is anyone, anywhere, surprised by this? I tried to keep some things unspoiler-ish, but I could only do so much. When I think back, I know the exact moment the game stole my heart. It wasn’t when I found myself trying not to hurt evil carrots. It wasn’t when a talking rock gave me...

    Axiom Verge is a stunning masterpiece. Many games draw inspiration from Metroid, but Axiom Verge was the first that set out to surpass it in every single way. Exploration has been streamlined to perfection by carefully shaping the map and filling it with secrets to find. There are a variety of weapons that all...

    Odallus: The Dark Call is possessed of a sense of melancholy – a sorrow that permeates the land and action. Even though it’s an awesome game, there is this unshakeable sadness you feel as you play. The people and world are all twisted, with failure feeling like an inevitability. Part of you may want...

    Must Plays of 2015 – Her Story

    A big part of why I loved Her Story came just from marvelling at how it all worked.
