Games I Have Somehow Yet to Play

Recently I picked up Valkyria Chronicles Remastered for PS4 via the Humble Bundle. The tactical/strategy RPG from the PS3 era was always on my radar, and the positive reception the game garnered made me think, “Yeah, I’ll play that someday.” And then someday became hopefully this year. This year became this console. Then this console became an old console, and I never got around to it. This is the case all too frequently with me: I really want to play some game, but for one reason or another, they slip through the cracks. While there are tons of games I want to play, there are a few that I actually do want to play and never get around to them. Even better case in point: I’ve wanted to make a post such as this for awhile now, but never got around to it! So let’s discuss today in no particular order ten games I really wanted to play, but never actually have.

Top Games of 2017: Honorable Mentions

The year of 2017 has come and gone and with it many excellent games. Over the past month, I’ve recapped six of the best games I played released in 2017. Going through the games of last year, some stood out as great, but not superb enough to warrant a top spot for the year. Also, last year I didn’t just play new games, but also ones released earlier. I didn’t find it appropriate to include these in a true Game of the Year post, but here are a few others video games that stood out to me in 2017. (more…)

Top Games of 2017: Persona 5

The year of 2017 will go down as one of the best in all of gaming. From the release of Nintendo’s Switch console to the abundant amount of triple A titles worth your time released this calendar year, it’s hard to find any other time it’s been this great to be a gamer. As the year wraps up I wanted to look back at some of the games that shaped the past 12 months for me. While there were many games I played this year, only a select few stand out as truly awesome. This is one of them. (more…)

Skyrim is a Testament to Open World RPGs

With the re-release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I’ve finally gotten a chance to play what many call the greatest Western RPG of all time. It is strange that I somehow played the previous title, Oblivion, multiple times, and actually owned the original Skyrim on Xbox 360, but never played Skyrim until this re-release. Regardless, I can say without a doubt after having spent dozens of hours scouring the land of Skyrim that this game is all kinds of fun! (more…)

Rocket League Stretches it’s Legs with Rumble

When Rocket League first burst onto the PlayStation 4 scene back in 2015, it kind of went under my personal radar for quite some time. Even after downloading the game for free through PS Plus it just sort of sat there for several months before my friends and I started it randomly one night. Since then we moved up the ranks into the “Pro” status level, earned tons of new decals and antennas, and yet still managed to feel incredibly inadequate at the game skill-wise. After a couple fun-filled months, I thought we were kind of done with Car Soccer Rocket League. That is until the most recent Rumble update added an entirely new and fun mode to the mix.  (more…)

Sunday Roundup: 9/18/16

The City Wide garage sale was this weekend, and while I picked up a good haul of games, most of them were for reselling later (including a copy of Parasite Eve on PS1 for just $2!). There were, however, a couple of games I grabbed from a Craigslist seller I simply couldn’t believe were still available. And then the Dragon Quest VII  port finally released on 3DS this week, so there are a ton of games to go over. Let’s get right into it! (more…)
