I live in the South. By which I mean the southern United States. I’m willing to bet that Ubisoft considered setting Far Cry 5 in my neck of the woods. I’ve lived in Arkansas for nearly 20 years now, but I’ve lived in North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee, and I’m originally from South Carolina. This […]Read more "Far Cry 5 — a video game review"
I’m not finished playing this game. I just want to put that out there up front. I’ve finished playing the campaign, which was fun and semi-fulfilling. I say “semi” because the beginning of the campaign was a little glitchy when I started playing (it’s feasible that there has been a fix since then) so that […]Read more "Assassin’s Creed: Origins — a video game review"
I just completed the main campaign in this video game, and just in time, too. You see, as I’m typing this my birthday is tomorrow. I’ve just about convinced myself that I need my wife to give me the new Spider-Man video game as a gift, but I didn’t have enough storage space on my […]Read more "Mad Max Video Game — a review"
I don’t care about multiplayer mode. In any game. I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. I have played video games since the 1980s. But, I’ve never found a multiplayer experience that I’ve truly enjoyed yet. I’ve raced against other players in racing games, and that was okay. I’ve also had other multiplayer […]Read more "Titanfall 2 — a video game review"
I’m going to admit up front that this is largely a review of the Iden Versio campaign in Star Wars Battlefront 2. I’m not a co-op type a guy, and I don’t expect that to change at this stage of my life. I have played some of the co-op offerings in this game, and […]Read more "Star Wars Battlefront 2 — a video game review"
This is a review of the Call of Duty: WWII campaign, which I recently wrapped up. I’m not a big multiplayer guy, and I haven’t tried the zombie Nazi mode (I will, at some point). I like campaigns. None of the Call of Duty campaigns have seemed very long to me, and this one […]Read more "Call of Duty: WWII — a video game review"
I’ve finished playing the Ubisoft video game Watch Dogs 2. I don’t mean that I’ve just finished playing the campaign. I completed that a couple of weeks ago. I mean, I’ve finished the game, earning all of its trophies, including the Platinum Trophy for earning all of the other trophies. This is my third platinum, […]Read more "Watch Dogs 2 — a video game review (Third Platinum Trophy!!)"
I can’t compare Just Cause 3, which I’m playing on the PS4, to either of the previous installments. I never played those. I will compare it to Far Cry 3, which is the game it initially reminded me of. I liked Far Cry 3 a lot. I loved the setting, with the mountains and […]Read more "Just Cause 3 – a video game review"
Oh. My. God. Am I allowed an OMG exclamation in the review of a video game? Not even an entire video game. Just the story-mode portion of a video game. I purchased Madden 18 because of its story mode, I’ll admit. I thought it was something different, though. I thought it was a kicked-up […]Read more "Madden 18: Longshot: single player story mode – video game review"
I’ve finished playing Mass Effect: Andromeda. I guess. I mean, I finished my first playthrough of the campaign, which I have been playing since the game was released. Not playing fanatically. I always take my time on a game, I feel I should point out. Plus, I’ve been switching off with at least four other […]Read more "Mass Effect: Andromeda — a video game review"
