(Time to read: 9 minutes) Whenever I find myself in a conversation about street racing games, it’s always just a matter of time before someone brings up Midnight Club. Usually it’s either “what happened to that series?” or “Midnight Club LA/3 is my favorite game and I miss it.” I also played it back in… Read More »Midnight Club: Nostalgia Damaged Edition

Games are neat, and I have things to say about them. I’m not a reviewer, I don’t care about building relationships with game companies, I just want to express my opinions freely and honestly. Sometimes that may end up coming out as senseless rambling, but so be it.
Secretly this is an excuse for me to both work through my game backlog and practice writing at the same time, don’t tell nobody.

(Time to read: 3 minutes) What if you took Ace Combat, my favorite game series, turned up the arcadeness and made it a roguelite? You get Sky Rogue. Naturally, this quickly became one of my favorite games ever. The controls are smooth, simple, and super fun with true full 6DoF control, the planes all feel… Read More »Sky Rogue: A Stylish, Deceptively Simple Gem
(Time to read: 2 minutes) Crowtel Renovations is a charming little game. I have to be honest here, there were a lot of parts that left me feeling super frustrated, and there are a lot of flaws ever present throughout the game… but I was still smiling all the way. I have a similar problem… Read More »Crowtel Renovations is charming
(Time to read: 2 minutes) Pikuniku is a nice game. That’s basically all I have to say about it… it’s nice. I like it, it was a fun time to play through. Would recommend. It’s hard to write about a game like this because while I think it’s good, I also don’t know what to… Read More »Pikuniku is nice
(Time to read: 9 minutes) Indivisible is such a weird game. Never before have I encountered anything that strikes such a perfect balance between cool ideas and poor execution, expertly dancing on the tightrope of mediocrity above a pit of failure, never falling but also never reaching the destination of quality. I’ve also never played… Read More »Indivisible is Certainly a Game
(Time to read: 13 minutes) I like cars. I like video games. These two things are a match made in heaven… probably. Racing games seem to have stuck around more consistently than almost anything else since the very beginning, so obviously they’re doing something right and appealing to the right people. I guess it’s a… Read More »Tokyo Xtreme Racer: The Worst Best Racing Game Ever
(Time to read: 7 minutes) Nostalgia is dangerous. Never meet your heroes, they say. This game, like Ace Combat also did, appeared by random chance in my childhood for just long enough to make a lasting impression on me and then disappeared into the ether. Unlike Ace Combat, however, I never returned to it when… Read More »Crimson Skies: Nostalgic Road to Nowhere
(Time to read: 13 minutes) I… don’t know where to start with this one. I’ve been sitting in front of a blank page trying to write anything about this game for so long now. You must understand, I take notes when I play games so I can form more complete thoughts later, and I took… Read More »Excessive complaining about Need for Speed Heat
(Time to read: 27 minutes) Need for Speed is a series that needs no introduction. Everybody knows about it already, the name is ubiquitous with the racing game genre. Heck, I know some people who have never even played a video game, some well past retirement age, and even they know what it is. For… Read More »Need for Speed: The Golden Years
