Quote of the week #11

“Come on, Karen. Don’t act all hurt. It’s too late. Where were you when I broke my leg when I was 13?

Where were you?”- Sean, Life is Strange 2, 2018-2019Continue reading “Quote of the week #11”

The problem with Shane- Stardew Valley

Hey, Gamers! So, this week we will be talking about Stardew Valley, focusing mainly on Shane. Shane is a datable character who is… not the nicest to you when you first move in.

Can you play Persona 5 Strikers without playing the original game?

Hey, Gamers! So this week we’re tackling this question because I know a lot of not-JRPG fans like the look of Strikers. The combat is a lot more mainstream and they think it looks better overall. So, as a Persona 5 expert, I’m here to dive into this and answer honestly. DISCLAIMER: Although I haveContinue reading “Can you play Persona 5 Strikers without playing the original game?”

Stardew Valley has taken over my life…

Hey, Gamers! So this week we are talking about Stardew Valley, a game that is available on pretty much anything.

Things my partner has said while gaming that I never thought I’d ever hear anyone say

Hey, Gamers! So this post has been a long time in the making, and I wasn’t going to post it yet but there’s a lot here so I figured I might do a part 2 when it comes to it.

Why do you feel differently about Goro Akechi depending on whether you’re playing Persona 5 or Persona 5 Royal?

Hey, Gamers! This week we’re making the well needed return to Persona 5 Royal.. and the original. For those who don’t know… I write about these games a lot because they take up about 70% of my thinking time each day, if not more.

Should Trigger Warnings be used in Video Games?

Hey, Gamers. This post is a little heavy and therefore I recommend making sure you’re in the right headspace before reading.

I will also be talking a little bit about my experience with theContinue reading “Should Trigger Warnings be used in Video Games?”

I will never rely on dialogue again…- Brothers: A tale of two sons

Hey, Gamers! Now, I know that this game is old, but I only recently played it. I was actually interested in it when I first got back into gaming, back when Josh (my partner) was trying to get me into games that weren’t Life Is Strange. I try not to research into games I haven’tContinue reading “I will never rely on dialogue again…- Brothers: A tale of two sons”

Gaming Quote of the Week #10

So this one is kind of corny but I feel like it’s important to keep in mind. If you haven’t played ‘To The Moon’ (I haven’t either but that’s going to change very soon- I have read loads about it though), I recommend it. Personal touch, but I’m in my last year of University. I’veContinue reading “Gaming Quote of the Week #10”
