I’m Really Hyped for Metro Exodus and Here’s Why

Of all the games on my ludicrously expensive Steam wishlist, the one I’m looking forward to most is Metro Exodus. The E3 reveal was breathtaking, to say the least, and I was literally clapping my hands in excitement from my desk. I typically don’t like shooters, but Metro undoubtedly is one of my favourite series. […]

Party Hard 2: first impressions and feelings

Party Hard is now over 3 years old, so it comes as of no surprise that there will be a sequel soon. Especially given how good and popular that game is. Addictive, hard-to-master gameplay, distinctive art style, and a kick-ass soundtrack have ensured its success. As Party Hard 2 is coming out at October 25, […]

Welcome back to another Music Monday, I hope you have had a pleasant weekend. Today I want to discuss a story told almost as much by the music as by the gameplay.

STEP BACK AND TAKE A LISTEN – MUSIC IN GAMES #5

Another Monday, another music blog. I hope everyone has had a splendid week! I have spoken at length about how instrumentation matters in a composition and I can think of no better example of this in a video game than Click Clock Wood from Banjo-Kazooie. Four seasons each play a variation of the main theme […]

Speedy Saturday: A Speedrunner’s Review – Axiom Verge

Happy weekend! I started writing this and it turned into something a little different than the intended Throwback Thursday, sorry I’m a few days late with this blog. Today is going to be a little self serving, and I will try to keep the bias to a minimum, but this game is a modern classic […]

We haven’t spent any time talking about Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and while I personally think that it fell short compared to the other Primes, it has some exceptional music. One of my […]

Destiny 2 (Story) Review.

Reviewed on PlayStation 4 With the wild popularity of Bungie’s Destiny (2014), it comes as no surprise that Destiny 2 came out of the corner swinging. During my approximately twelve hours of vanilla game play (as the hunter class) there was never a dull moment, which is a warm welcome considering the original game and […]
