Firefly – The Unification War Part 1 Review

By Steven Seggerman Back in 2002 Firefly aired for the first time on TV, and viewers instantly fell in love.

Fell Seal Arbiter’s Mark Review

By Steven Seggerman Tactical RPGs are some of my favorite types of games. 6 Eyes Studios has admitted their biggest influence was Final Fantasy Tactics, and it’s a great game to model a project off of.

Vaporum Review

By Steven Seggerman Vaporum is a game that checks all the boxes for me. Tactical, strategic combat on a grid map with deep RPG elements? Shut up and take my money. However, right away I knew I was going to have a lot of mixed feelings about the game. The intro and storytelling are questionably…Read moreRead more

Generation Zero Review

By Steven Seggerman Generation Zero is a first-person survival game that takes place in ‘80s Sweden during a post-apocalyptic event. The “we made killer robots, and we’re surprised they’ve turned on us” variety of apocalypse we’ve all come to know and dread.

Elder Scrolls Blades Review

By Steven Seggerman After months of being teased by Bethesda, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is finally here! I got my Early Access pass, jumped in, and was immediately blown away by what I saw.

Operencia: The Stolen Sun Review

By Steven Seggerman Operencia: The Stolen Sun sounds like your typical run-of-the-mill RPG. At first glance, I didn’t see anything that stood out from the rest.

Yonder – The Cloud Catcher Chronicles Review

By Steven Seggerman Some games are no-holds-barred, adrenaline-filled thrill rides full of action and danger, and then there are games like Yonder. It has none of that; in fact, there is no combat whatsoever. At first, I found that mind-blowing, but after sinking a lot of time into it, I realized that it doesn’t need…Read moreRead more

The Anthem Review

By Steven Seggerman Some time ago I got into Anthem’s VIP beta, and like many of you, I was worried about the future of this game. To say that “I got into” the beta is referring to the times that it worked. When I got the chance to fly around It was a fantastic thrill…Read moreRead more

Toe Jam and Earl Back in the Groove Review

By Steven Seggerman If you never got the chance to play the original Toe Jam and Earl on the Sega Genesis, way back in 1991, don’t worry because most didn’t.

Video Game Review: Tyr Chains of Valhalla

By Steven Seggerman Tyr: Chains of Valhalla is a side-scrolling shooter much like that of Mega Man, except in all the worst ways possible. I want to get this out of the way now; I hated this game. I hated just about everything in regards to this game. If you are a fan of fun,…Read moreRead more

Life is Strange 2, Episode 2 Review: Rules

By Steven Seggerman Before we begin: Minor spoilers ahead! Life is Strange is a series near and dear to my heart.
