Mass Effect: Andromeda

Hold onto your omni-tools, friends. We got some things to discuss. So, if you've read any of my previous reviews of the games in this franchise (which can be found here or here), you know I'm a bit of a fan. Maybe even a bit more than "just" a fan. I love these games. I got so invested… Continue reading Mass Effect: Andromeda

For Honor: A Review

I usually talk about it as if it were real life, because to me, it usually feels that way. I wouldn't call myself a "serious" gamer. I haven't played all of… Continue reading Make My Gamer’s Heart Accelerate

Mass Effect 3: A Response

I know, I know, I'm really behind. Needless to say, my tardiness in playing this series did not hinder my intense reaction that is very similar to the initial onslaught the game caused after it first came out and the world started playing it; and, upon ending it, quickly erupted into cries of anger and… Continue reading Mass Effect 3: A Response
