Late to the Party: Dark Souls 3

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

Developed by: Telltale Games

I’m a sucker for anything with dinosaurs in it. My unchecked passion has gotten me in trouble before, wooing me into buying Orion: Prelude and seeing Jurassic Park 3 in theaters. Other times, it allows me to take a risk and discover something wonderful, or at least enjoyable. In the case of Jurassic Park: The Game, I found a worthy sequel to Jurassic Park that was just as fun and flawed as the original movie, though in different ways. Continue reading

Late to the Party: Depth

Price I paid: Played it during a free weekend.

Available on: PC

My introduction to online PvP games was Alien Vs Predator. Two friends and I would take turns, switching to the next player upon death. I played the aliens almost exclusively, learning then that I loved man vs monster games, especially when I could be the monster. So when I saw Depth, a diver-eating simulator, was free to play for the weekend, I cleared a few gigs on my hard drive and gave it a shot. Continue reading

Late to the Party: Bound by Flame

Price I paid: $9.99

Available on: PC (reviewed), PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360.

Have you ever shared a plate of nachos with your friends only to find that while you were enjoying them everyone else was power-vomiting into a trash can? That’s how I feel about Bound by Flame. While the game had its problems, the good far outweighed the bad for me. Though according to a Wikipedia summary of the reviews, I found depth in places other people criticized it. Continue reading
