I don't have time to play each new release in gaming, but in some rare cases I'll make the time and Rage 2 is one of those games I'm gonna make time for. The open world trailer dropped tonight during The Game Awards and I was happy enough to watch it and then nab the link on YouTube to share with you here. The game looks even better than what they previously showed and the artistry shown in how the trailer is cut is superb. My only question is how much like the real game is this? If they can deliver on most of what we see here this game is going to be bloody great.

Oh and the Russo Brothers just came out at The Game Awards making a finger snap joke and delivered the... Read All


Psychonauts 2 is an upcoming game by Double Fine and just today received a new official trailer! Rasputin is back and this time he's not at Summer Camp anymore and much of the game seems to take place in Psychonauts headquarters! The trailer is big on plot mystery which makes the anticipation for the final game all the more fun. One thing I've come to love about Double Fine is the game narratives are always top notch. The last Double Fine game I loved my way through was Broken Age and I felt like the second half was way too obtuse puzzle wise but the story was great and I wanted to finish the game simply to see how things turned out. I wasn't disappointed in Broken... Read All

The second Captain Marvel trailer just dropped on the Internet and I wanted to share it here for you to watch and comment on. Captain Marvel takes place in the 90's as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel heads back to Earth for reasons unknown with some incredible super powers.

MCU Lore Because Why Not?

I'm not gonna pretend i'm the person with the most Marvel knowledge but it seems Captain Marvel's Kree connection is a huge focus on this trailer and I remembered something about the Kree from past MCU films so I looked it up.

Yondu had a line from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 about being enslaved by the Kree.

Yondu: "I was a Kree battle slave for twenty years when Stakar freed... Read All

I thought Anodyne was one of the coolest Indie games to come out in 2013 and was happy to hear Anodyne 2 is in development. Recently developers Analgesic Productions have released more details of the game and one big one featured in the linked video above, is the ability to switch between 3D and 2D game modes. The 2D game graphics are in the style of the original game and the 3D looks very reminiscent of early Playstation or Nintendo 64 games.

"Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is coming early 2019 for Windows and Mac OSX. Much like Final Fantasy, there's no need to play Anodyne 1 to understand Anodyne 2's story, but longtime fans will find connections to Anodyne 1! It's also... Read All

Bethesda recently tweeted that Elder Scrolls Blades isn't going to launch this year and that it's coming early in 2019. Elder Scrolls Blades is one of my most anticipated games (it looks awesome) and it's a bit unfortunate to hear it's pushing out a bit but if the game is better for it then why not?

"The Elder Scrolls: Blades will release in Early 2019 for iOS and Android devices. We are incredibly excited for you to play Blades and you can still sign up for Early Access at http://PlayBlades.com ."

If you frequent this site you know I love watching speedruns. I think a great speedrunner is not only skilled at the game they are playing but can also explain the history of the run as well as how certain strategies were discovered. Certain YouTube channels do breakdowns of Speedruns and their history and Summoning Salt is one of the best. Check out the historical breakdown of the Super Mario Bros. 3 100% Speedrun above and learn about Mitch Flower Power and the rest of amazing runners that have traded the world record over the years.

If this speedrun historical breakdown isn't enough for you, strap in because in a couple days i'm going to post my final 2018 GDQ... Read All


Half-life is a classic PC game that I bought to play Counter-Strike. I knew it was a fun game, but discovered that later after playing a ton of Counter-Strike. Truth be told I was never really good at LAN Counter-Strike but I was pretty good at Half-life as it was one of the first first person shooter games to blend puzzle solving with a first class sci-fi story.

"Few games have made an immediate impact quite like Half-Life. From the narrative, to the level design, to the numerous spin-offs and mods! The original 1998 PC gaming classic is well worth revisiting."
