Afterparty Review

Developer: Night School Studio
Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One

Night School Studio, featuring former developers from the defunct-but-now-resurrected Telltale Games, have brought us once again another story-driven side-scrolling adventure akin to a “walk and talk” simulator. I know that’s not necessarily a sub-genre yet, but for the purpose of this review, that’s what we’re going to call it!

Is Video Game Violence a Problem?

Video Game Violence Argument

Unfortunately, here in America, we have fallen victim to another wave of deadly mass shootings, this time two happening in the same weekend; El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, leaving 32 people dead and over 50 wounded. A senseless tragedy that did not need to happen. 

In the wake of every large mass shooting event, the country grieves and then begins to ask why. Unfortunately this becomes a political debate as opposed to a “humanity” debate, as we continually disagree with ways we can combat gun violence in this country.

Blog – A Video Game Stay-Cation

Confused by the title? First, let me define what a stay-cation actually means.

Have off of work, or school? Not planning on going anywhere or doing anything in that time? Well, you’re staying home on your vacation then, and not doing a damn thing. In our busy society where there’s ALWAYS a project, always something to do, always somewhere to go, it’s nice to just wake up one day and say “I got nothing to do this whole week.” Unfortunately, if you’re a homeowner like myself, there’s ALWAYS something needs to get done, but that’s par for the course.

I only bring this up because I scheduled a week off this last week in February, and I had nothing planned. Nothing. Sure I bumbled around the house, doing this and that, but for the most part I was excited about all the games I could potentially play and get to. Fortunately for myself, the video game Anthem came out and it affords me a lot of time to get into that one, a game that requires a good portion of your time in order to really enjoy it.

Resident Evil 2 ReMake Review

Developer : Capcom
Platform : PS4, Xbox One, PC

This is a disclaimer; Resident Evil 2 is one of my most favorite games of all time. It obviously is my favorite Resident Evil game in the entire series, so my bias may be REAL strong in this review. However, as with other remasters and remakes, they have been known to polarize a dedicated fan-base that does not want ANYTHING in their beloved series to change. I’m open to change and improvement, and when I found out one of my favorite games of all time was being remade from the ground up, I jumped for joy, but sat in bated breath, hoping that it wouldn’t demolish what made the original so good in the first place.
