ArcaniA: The Complete Tales: A Review

**So, I started writing this post almost a year ago, but never finished it. It's a game I really wanted to actually write a proper review for, so I'm finishing it now. It doesn't get all the details that I wanted to capture, fresh from playing it, but hey, you win some and you lose… Continue reading ArcaniA: The Complete Tales: A Review

There is no doubt--not a shadow, not a sliver, not an inkling--surrounding my excitement for the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda. I've been ready since it's announcement. Ever since I bawled my eyes out at the end of playing Mass Effect 3 (very late, granted, compared to the rest of the crowd, but still), I've been eagerly… Continue reading My Purposefully Ignorant Wait to Explore Andromeda

Mass Effect

WARNING: SPOILERS ABOUND (for entire trilogy, just not first game) AFTER THIS SENTENCE. READ AT YOUR OWN PERIL. I spent this afternoon frantically killing Saren/Sovereign before I had to go to work tonight. Last night, I stayed up until four in the morning, hyped up on adrenaline, as I fought in Virmire (dammit, Virmire). Even… Continue reading Mass Effect
