Here's a quick question for ya: What kind of keyboard do you prefer and why? Mechanical (clicky), membrane (soft), or hybrid (both)? This year, I've gotten to know the difference between the two (I'll explain below). I kind of think I like the membrane (my Cynosa) more than my mechanical/hybrid (my Ornata). From what I've briefly read (mostly on the packaging), it seems "hardcore" gamers prefer mechanical keyboards. I'm not really sure why though. I think it has something to do w/ response time and being able to have a definite, hard feel of pressing a key, being sure that you press it. Since I'm not sure of this preference, perhaps someone here could fill me in,... Read All

Final Fantasy VIII is my ultimate, most favorite Final Fantasy of them all. I was introduced to it and the series about 20 years ago and I fell deeply in love with it. I don't know how many times I've completed this game, but I remember when I'd play it annually. Now, it's been remastered and the game looks beautiful! Check them embedded video that will show you the difference (between this and the original) to see for yourself. I haven't completed the game in this play through yet, but I feel like it deserves a strong recommendation (from one of FFVIII's biggest fans).

Aside from some upgraded and now beautiful textures, one slight difference between this and the... Read All

“DOOM” Eternal is a sequel to “DOOM” (2016). However, it doesn’t just add new content, but it also adds some new functionality. Platforming is still a part of the series and DOOM Eternal adds a bit more to getting around. Now there is a mod for the Super Shotgun called the Meat Hook. It will let you grapple onto a demon and shoot or punch it. The new Blood Punch melee attack does some serious damage. If you want to instantly kill a Pinky, Blood Punch it in the face. The gauge for this attack gets refilled when you perform Glory Kills.

One new way to get armor is by using the Flame Belch. It is a new piece of gear that puts demons on fire. While they’re lit, they’ll... Read All

DOOM (not to be confused with Doom apparently) is still a great game, four years later. However, one of my main complaints is the platforming. It’s kind of like a cross between Doom and Super Mario Bros. Still, I think it’s a great game. As someone who’s been playing Doom since the beginning (and even before with Wolfenstein 3D), DOOM is a great addition to the series. There wasn’t much of a story in the original Doom games. Doom 3 had more of a story, and so does this one.

DOOM is a great visual upgrade from the other games in the series. It looks great and apparently performs really well, too. You can play with the Vulkan API, which seems to be pretty awesome. I seem... Read All


Here's just a quick announcement about some very exciting news I found in a brief announcement from Studio Wildcard. Apparently, they've announced Ark 2, but haven't released a trailer or details. I believe I read that it's going to focus on Santiago's story (played by Vin Diesel). He's one of the characters you'll only find out about by reading Explorer Notes that are hidden throughout the game. These notes cover a few different characters, but Helena and Rockwell (David Tennant) seem to be the main characters, at least at the moment. They also showed a preview for Ark: The Animated series, which stars actors such as Russell Crow, Vin Diesel, David Tennant, Karl... Read All


When I heard Ghosts 'n Goblins was getting a reboot today I was happy. That's an odd thing to say considering I've never played a version of Ghost 'n Goblins I've enjoyed. That said, it's always been a game with a great art style and premise and Resurrection seems to take it in a very true to the games roots feel. The hard part about playing Ghosts 'n Goblins on NES is that it felt like you die more to game jank than it being "difficult but fair" and I hope this reboot fixes that.

"The beloved Ghosts ‘n Goblins series from Capcom makes a comeback on Nintendo Switch! Armor up as Arthur for an all-new adventure in Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection, releasing on 2/25!"

The Epic Games Store on PC is giving away 15 free PC games this year to help ring in the new year. So far I've netted well over 50 PC games free from Epic including Grand Theft Auto V, FTL and the entire Batman Arkham series. I'm not sure what other games Epic has hidden under the tree but we'll find out as they release one free game per day starting on December 17th!

In our first ever music review, we chat about Metallica's new release, S&M 2, and how it fits with the legacy of the original S&M and Metallica's catalog.


My 4 year old son Finley got a Pokeball with 3 packs of Pokemon cards as a Thanksgiving present from his Grandma. Since he's still quite young we don't really play the Pokemon card game as much as pretend to bring out cards and attack each other. It's quite silly and he wins a lot because, magically, the made up rules always seem to favor him. One thing I noticed in these new Pokemon card packs he got for Thanksgiving was that they contained a lot more cards than the ones we've picked up at the dollar store and also they come with a digital code to redeem a pack on the Pokemon digital card game. I've haven't played the Pokemon digital card game yet so I decided to... Read All


If you love all things Wololo then you need to watch this LGR Ages of Empires retrospective. Age of Empires is one of the more historically impactful RTS games of all time and as such has received quite a few modern remakes. Age of Empires III was the last game to get a definitive edition and at this point it's all up to Microsoft to launch the brand new Age of Empires IV. I hope Age of Empires IV can take us to some kind of high tech space Age but at this point we don't know a lot about what it will be yet.
