A Plea for RPGs

So, I'm a pretty huge gamer. RPGs, specifically. I've pretty much sold pieces of my soul to BioWare and Bethesda, particularly, and I'm totally okay with that. The games that they create makes that totally worth it. The characters who I fall in love with, the worlds that are immersive and vast and let me… Continue reading A Plea for RPGs

E3 Reponse From the Casually Obsessed Gamer

So, E3 finally happened. I wasn't lucky enough to go (who has that kind of money?) and that's probably a good thing, because I saw pictures of some of the swag that was there and oh boy, my bank account does not need that kind of temptation put in front of me. I watched most… Continue reading E3 Reponse From the Casually Obsessed Gamer

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

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

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

Falling Back In Love With Television

To some, I'm sure the idea that I lost interest in both watching television seems absurd (just wait until you hear my reasons), but that has definitely been the case...for years. When I moved out and went to college, Netflix and I were tight-knit as you could be. That was my main hobby; binging TV… Continue reading Falling Back In Love With Television

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
