Amazing VGM: Crystal Sewers (Penny Arcade Adventures: Episode Three)

Despite the fact that I don’t have many strong feelings one way or the other about Penny Arcade Adventures: Episode Three, this specific track sticks out. It seems like Zeboyd’s soundtracks often tend to strike that nostalgic note that will always stick with you, in spite of the fact that their games aren’t the most …

Standard Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 (PS3/360/Wii/PC/Ios/Android/OUYA)

I have always had a history with the Sonic the Hedgehog series. I grew up with both of the Sonic Adventure titles and I formed a connection with both of them early on. I also was nostalgic for the Genesis games seeing as how I played them through Sonic Mega Collection. I did enjoy games …

Standard Review: Actual Sunlight (PC/Vita/Switch)

CW: Depression, suicide. Just a quick warning to give to anyone thinking of playing this; this game is absurdly bleak. When I say this, I don’t even mean bleak as in it will make you cry or anything; I’m talking that this game can completely shatter your sense of hope. If you suffer from depression …

Standard Review: Clothing & Alterations (PC) (NSFW)

CW: Discussion of kinks and fetishes. Of the many statements I’ve made in my writing career, if I was told I had to choose one specific hill to die on, I’d probably choose the statement that queer people are better at writing erotica than cishet people. And no, this isn’t because I consider it the …

Impressions & Commentary: DeltaRune Chapters 1 & 2

Time for a short break from politics to talk about a game that I promised a piece about a while back, but took way too long to get to. Undertale is one of my favorite games of all time, somewhere in my top five at least, and yet it took this long to check out …

Amazing VGM: First Steps (Celeste)

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! The decision to make this piece was a bit of a last minute idea I had while listening to the soundtrack. It just hit me that this makes the PERFECT Holiday themed VGM for this series. And also, I’ve been meaning to get back into the habit of making these for …

Quick Review: Digital Seclusion (PC)

CW: Discussion of agoraphobia, depression, and suicide. I think it’s safe to assume that some of us, myself included, view games as more than just entertainment. The gaming medium has a near and dear place in my heart, and many of the games I’ve played have shaped who I am as a person. While I’ve …
