If you follow gaming rumors at all, you’ve almost certainly heard about the possible Nintendo Direct hitting in the coming weeks. Personally, I don’t think any of the “leaks” are real, but I do think they’re popping up now because a Direct being right around the corner makes a lot of sense. There’s almost always one in either January or February, and since we didn’t get one in January, it makes sense that we can expect one very soon.
Dead Space (Remake) is a science fiction survival horror game. The original game was released in October of 2008. It has been 15 years and now they have brought it back this year upgraded and looking great! The story/gameplay mostly takes place in space on the USG Ishimura. Ishimura is a world cracking ship that’s stopped digging. You play as an engineer on a small team that was sent for what they thought was a repair job. Once the teams ship, named USG Kellion, is docked with Ishimura, it becomes clear that something is going majorly wrong. If you enjoy a stress inducing gory nightmare then read on.
When I decided to bring back the feature “How About That Direct?”, I assumed that the first post would be about a Nintendo Direct. After all, there usually is one around this time of the year, and they’re by far the presentations I get the most excited about, outside of E3 anyway. But no, Xbox decided to put on a show today, and they even used the “Direct” name, so of course, I had to watch it and I want to talk about it.
My history with Fire Emblem is pretty short, if you’ve been reading the blog you’ve pretty much seen all of it. Like a lot us, I didn’t even know the series existed until Marth and Roy were included in Super Smash Bros. Melee. But in the last few years, I played through all of Fire Emblem Awakening, Three Houses would end up being my game of the year in 2019, Fire Emblem Heroes is still the only mobile game to really get it’s hooks in me, and of course, spin-off game Tokyo Mirage Sessions would end up being one of my favorite gams of all time. All this is to say, that I was really looking forward to Fire Emblem Engage.
It’s a new year, and with that comes new plans for the blog. The last few years, I’ve really fallen off of regularly writing new posts. I’m hoping to correct that this year. This will be a really quick post, I just want to go over what I’m planning to do.
You wouldn’t know it by reading this blog, but I played quite a few games this year. I also liked quite a few games this year. So, as is tradition, it’s time to discuss my ten favorite games of 2022. This is a very similar first paragraph to the previous game of the year list, and that’s pretty depressing. Oh well.
So many games that I’ve loved have come out in 2022, all of which I should have written about. That new Kirby? Might be the best Kirby of all time. Elden Ring? I’ve never been able to get into a Soulslike but that one actually held my attention. Xenoblade Chronicles 3? One of the best JRPGs I’ve ever played. But none of those were able to get my lazy ass to sit down and actually write about them. Maybe I will some day. But you know what did? Capcom put out a demo for Resident Evil Village. It’s the same demo they put out before, but now you can play in third person. Let’s talk about it. Continue reading
How is it June already? It feels like just yesterday I was writing my top 10 games of the year list. But I guess that’s what happens when you do a terrible job of keeping up on your blog. But enough about that, it’s E3 Season! There may not be an actual E3 this year, but when has that stopped me from posting E3 predictions?
2021 was not a great year for me writing about video games. As I write this, I see that last year’s top ten list is only six posts down from this one. But, even though I struggled to write about them, I did still manage to play a good amount of games, which means I can still tell you about my ten favorite ones.Continue reading
Hey, it’s been awhile. Last thing I wrote was my predictions for E3 2021. I didn’t even write anything for E3 itself. I don’t really have an excuse for that, but I’m going to try to jump back in. So first, here’s a quick catch up on the almost half a year that I didn’t say anything.
