Review: Super C

I posted a couple months ago about the release of the Contra Anniversary Collection. Since that time, my oldest son and I have been playing through these games together. Last month, I posted my review of the original Contra, a true classic from the NES era. It was a game I enjoyed immensely as a …

Review: Bloodstained – Ritual of the Night

This is a game review that I’ve been waiting almost four years to write. As a lifelong fan of Castlevania, I still remember the excitement I felt when Koji Igarashi (former developer of Castlevania) announced he was creating his own gaming studio and his first project was going to be none other than a spiritual …

Next up on the spooky game list is a title that I’ve had sitting in my Steam library for awhile. Slender – The Arrival. Now, before playing this game I actually knew very little about the “Slenderman” phenomena. I knew that the character of Slenderman was born from some creepy Internet meme,  but I was …

Review: Wolfenstein – The New Order

I don’t always get the chance to review games when they are brand new. But I knew that Wolfenstein would be an exception. After playing it, I’m glad that I put everything else on the back burner for a bit. The game was better than I expected. The New Order continues the story that started …

Review: Thief (2014)

This review took a bit longer to put together than I anticipated. My total playtime through the newest entry in the Thief franchise was just over 35 hours, so forgive me for taking a while to get this review posted. However, I’m happy to report that despite many of the dismal reviews out there on …
