Disgaea Is My Comfort Food

I remember the first time I bought Disgaea. I was 13 at the time and games were life. So,  I walked into the Game Plaza on 116th and Lex, and planned on buying something new. I didn’t know what but I had $50 to spend and I was going to walk out of there with something. Enter Disgaea. All I saw was the cover with no background knowledge of what it was – just the cover. I bought it on a whim and to this day I don’t regret that decision.

Creator’s Intent: How We Are Meant to Play

Screenshot from Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
Hellblade delivers an exciting experience but misleads players along the way.

If you’re like me, then you play almost every game on normal. In my opinion, this is how the experience is meant to be enjoyed. Once I’m done, I venture into playing on a higher difficulty. While many consider themselves try-hards, I’m more inclined to finish a game the way the creator intended. The base experience has more to offer me than soul-crushing difficulty.

Enhanced Consoles: Good or Bad Idea?

Sony's enhanced console, the PS4 Pro.
Are you upgrading for 4K resolution?
The PS4 Pro just dropped, and next year the Xbox One’s Scorpio is set to release. I don’t know how to feel about these enhanced consoles yet. They are cool in concept, but do they bring enough to the table to justify replacing your current machine? Continue reading Enhanced Consoles: Good or Bad Idea?

The Mass Effect Anomaly

Mass Effect Andromeda is different, and sometimes not in a good way.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is a weird game. I’m not saying that I don’t enjoy it but playing it just feels strange, like something is off, and it’s not the animations. Keep in mind that I’ve only had enough time to complete a majority of the missions on planet EOS, so I still have a large portion of the game to get through. With that said, a few aspects stick out, shaping my early impressions of what the rest of it might be like.  Continue reading The Mass Effect Anomaly

Renegade Plays: Injustice 2 – Black Canary vs. Atrocitus

Late night playing the Injustice 2 beta. Practicing my Black Canary. I managed to squeeze a few wins in before this guy started handing me my ass again. Black Canary is an interesting character to play as in Injustice 2. She is great for closing the distance and her Canary Cry works wonders at full range.

Good news everyone! I have a YouTube Channel. It’s nothing much right now. I have three videos uploaded from my plays with the For Honor and Injustice 2 betas. However, I’m hoping to add more every weekend. I’m getting some more gaming done on the weekends and want to share it with everyone!

So far, every video is just gameplay but I’m working on adding commentary in the future. For now, bear with me and I hope you enjoy. Let me know what games you want to see me play and share in the future.

Renegade’s Radar: Sundered

Well, since Nintendo refuses to do anything Metroid (or even acknowledge the classic’s 30th anniversary),  I often find myself looking for my fix elsewhere. And with luck, I do find games that tackle the Metroidvania style of gameplay pretty well. On the horizon is a new game called Sundered, from the makers of the critically acclaimed Jotun. A game with such promise, that it reached its Kickstarter goal of $19,091 in a mere 6 hours. As of now, the game has raised $69,353 with 16 days to go.

Color me excited for the prospect of this one. When other companies make Metroidvania style games, they tend to add their own little twist. I like the idea of procedurally generated dungeons and the consequence of becoming more powerful. Also, as a plus, the art is beautiful. You still have a couple of days to back this project if you are interested in the benefits. While I usually stay away from backing Kickstarters (I’ve been burned before), this one looks to come out pretty soon and Thunder Lotus Games has a good track record.
