A Different Point of Review: Hyper Light Drifter

hld

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

a different point of review shadow of mordor

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.

Is It Worth $12? A Humble Monthly Preview

When all the hype dies down, all the patches are finished, and time has let the game settle into its place, I want to answer one simple question about the game: Is it worth $12?

Is It Worth $12? is a fresh video review of the early unlock game Humble Monthly offers so you can decide if the game is worth $12.

I’ll be doing one each month for several months, putting the review up 1-2 weeks after the Humble Monthly is available. This gives you plenty of time to decide if you want to spend the $12 dollars this month or not.

The first one is up: Pillars of Eternity for August 2017 Humble Monthly. Which if you’re still uncertain about purchasing, you have two more days to decide.

Late to the Party: Dark Souls 3

darksoul3

Reviewed on: PC (Steam)

I’m a huge Dark Souls fan. It is easily one of my favorite games ever. I was immensely disappointed by Dark Souls 2. The subpar gameplay, worse than expected graphics, boring characters, and how they handled Scholar of the First Sin all left me unsatisfied and feeling used. So I had very mixed feelings about Dark Souls 3. A war of the hopefulness of what could be and bitterness of what happened last time pulled at my heart every time I thought about it. I wanted it to be good, but I wasn’t sure they could recreate the things I really loved about the first game in a way that made it seem familiar and new at the same time.

After it launched, I paid close attention to make sure there wasn’t a repeat of the events of Dark Souls 2. When Dark Souls 3 did the remarkable thing of being the same game they pitched, I broke down and got it. I bought new parts to upgrade my computer and paid full price for the game just a few weeks after launch. Continue reading
