2015 in Video Games

Since it’s now {{ current year | yy }} I supposed it’s best to continue the tradition of a wrap-up for the last year’s worth of video games. I briefly contemplated doing another award crest, but I ran out of ideas for categories. Instead, I’m just going to note an arbitrary number of games that I played this year that I felt very strongly positive about, which were also released this year. I won’t put any unfinished/unreleased games on my list, and none of them are good anyway so it works out perfectly. Continue reading

Life is Strange (Tea Tales)

I needed a break from the Sunday session. The sun was getting in my eye, which I wouldn’t have minded so much had I’ve not been staring at the window.

Life is Strange is an episodic graphic adventure video game developed by Dontnod Entertainment and published by Square Enix. As to things that you couldn’t actually just google, I played it.

I don’t write with a script though so who knows by the end. Most of the things I say will be pertaining to the official game’s narrative and how it stands and falls by itself and when poised against its predecessor. Continue reading

Harmful Opinions

It’s been a long bloody time.

Everything I’ve been doing is awfully pretentious but that’s something for another day. What I am here to touch on, however, is politics. Specifically American-centric politics. Of course I could talk about Canadian politics too but Canada is boring, and their elections have finished already. Continue reading

GTA V (Tea tales)

I never originally planned to write this, but since I finally got around to finishing the game after overcoming a myriad of bugs and other hindrances, and the fact that I’ve nothing else planned for the night, here it is. Now, I did the vast majority of the game’s mission, which took me some thirty hours. This was due to numerous crashes and problems with control schemes (which I will get to later), but there’s your disclaimer. Continue reading
