REVIEW! Double Action Boogaloo

Over the years, third person shooters have always been a hit or miss for me. Games like Resident Evil 4, Max Payne, Dead Space, Gears of War, and any Tom Clancy games, help to shape and define a generation of third person shooters.

Yakuza 0 and the Omnipresent Dialogue

As a person who enjoys character-driven games, Yakuza 0 definitely satisfies that love. This is my introduction to the series, and the biggest surprise was amount of lengthy dialogue you sit through. It’s both a blessing and a curse (although those opposite sides of the spectrum may be too extreme). It’s both fun and boring.

First Impressions of Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV sets the tone with a not-so-serious approach.

Noctis, Gladiolus, Ignis, and Prompto come back from a bachelor’s vacation when their Regalia convertible breaks down in the middle of the desert. The player is prompted to push the car forward.
