I’m a drifter, a pilgrim that knew nothing of this place or its people. Though I do not require such things to know what happened here long ago. Structures remain only half standing. Vine-covered artillery offers no threat beyond their image. Deadly waters and cliff faces encroach on the walkable land. The corpses of monstrous machines stretch up from the waters and mountainsides, but they harm no more. The turmoil of this broken land and warring people remain a frozen portrait of the tragedy that came. The scars and aftermath litter the land, offering a silent and thoughtful look at the devastation of war. Continue reading “A Different Point of Review: Hyper Light Drifter”
I managed to post this everywhere except on my website. While it’s too late to buy the September Humble Monthly, here’s a video review of Killing Floor 2! That still might matter to you!
Have I seen the ranger? Ha! I done killed ‘im. Twice. Know a dozen orcs like myself who killed ‘im at least once. Bugger always comes back, though. Each time I killed ‘im, I got myself a promotion. Then I fought my way up higher. That’s how I got to bossin’ you ‘round, maggot, and how I got this here armor. Every promotion shows off how much stronger I’ become. But I ain’t the only one shufflin’ around the ranks and gettin’ stronger when one of the boys kill the ranger. Seems like every orc worth a name fights to fill in the new positions when the ranger kills one of us, and we all fights our way to the top. Continue reading “A Different Point of reView”
I like trying new things.
A Different Point of reView is a video game review in the form of a short story. The aim is to engage and interest the reader with a good story while capturing the tone and spirit of the game in the style and content of the text. The story itself will convey the necessary components of a review while telling a story through the eyes of a character within the game.
A Different Point of reView will pop up around once a month, and the first one will be available within a few days. This is separate from my video review Is It Worth $12? Without a paying outlet, it’s something I can only do in my free time. Thus, around once a month is my best estimation.
Thanks for being awesome! I look forward to dropping these for you.

It’s a humbling experience when I start raving about something only to change my tune before it’s over. It’s the same feeling I suspect new parents have after two months of insufficient sleep from a crying newborn. Understandably, you might think that you know what I’m going to say about Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and stop reading now, but don’t. It’s not because I get paid when you click to read the full review (because I don’t get paid anything for this), but because there was so much the game did right. Despite my wavering feelings for it after twenty-some hours, you may find it to your liking. Continue reading “Late to the Party: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning”

I love enjoyably bad things. Things like cheesy fantasy movies with grand ideas and a $15 budget or melodramas that have no talent on display can be wildly entertaining. This is true of games as well. Army of Two and Gears of War 2 are truly bad games to me, but I had a blast playing the campaign mode with friends. Resident Evil 6 fails and succeeds at so many different things, I’m not sure I could categorize it as good or bad. But there is one label that does fit: fun.
