    Ghostbusters Video Game Remastered

    Ghostbusters Video Game Remastered Promo Art

    Nobody asked for a Ghostbusters Video Game Remastered review in 2021, it's sure to be overshadowed by the mega Afterlife release coverage, but maybe, just maybe, you weren't sure who to call. So, that's where I spawn my digital specter presence and declare, "No, Mr. Parker, no I ain't 'fraid of no ghosts." I'm not sure if there's anybody on the planet who has never seen Ghostbusters, so to those who want to know more, let me indulge you in this review of an updated Switch version of a game that revived a great continuation of the Ghostbusters universe.

    Power Rangers Battle for the Grid: Review

    power rangers battle for the grid title screen fightet

    I'm not sure why the Power Rangers Battle for the Grid DLC packs showed up on Steam today. While the DLC's don't interest me yet, I did remember I have been eager and hopeful about the core game which is available on Xbox Gamepass, and I knew what I had to do, review the core game! It's not accurate to sort Power Rangers into any category I decided. This is because it's a phenomenon in and of itself. As a millennial, I was raised on Zordon and Tommy. So, I knew I could check this out without extending my spirit…

    Planet Zoo: Lions, and Tigers, and Bears!

    Personal revelation: I love animals! Always have, always will. When I travel, one of my first attractions is usually a zoo, aquarium, or natural history museum. Not to mention beaches, refuges, and forests. And while we’re at it, throw some vegetarian restaurants into the mix. That is one reason today I’ll be reviewing Planet Zoo. Unfortunately, haven’t been able to go much of anywhere in a while due to you know what. It’s a subject which is turning video games less into a way to relax into a fully blown way to experience things. And that’s how it used to…

    Minecraft Fans Dream Of 64-Bit Sheep

    minecraft 100% pure popular video game survival craft

    Minecraft rocks. It blocks and rolls. I first played this game around I want to say 2009. People in my social circle were going bonkers for this game. Or “bonkies” as I now want to say, but that’s unrelated. I was really hesitant because it seemed to short circuit my interest in sandbox gameplay with how I felt about low res graphics. It’s basically still that way, but this is one of the most popular games ever, so I return to it frequently. Chop Down Trees With Ya’ Bare Fists! Ah, yes, a glorious sunrise in Minecraft valley amongst the…

    Yoshi’s Crafted World: Review

    yoshi's crafted world fun family friendly nintendo game

    I had to remember how to play this game, but once I did I remembered how care free it is to play this game, a nice array of forgiving obstacles and a high attention to detail in its very particular artistic style. I meant to write something about it a while ago, but I kept overthinking it. Today I have some video, screenshots, and seasoned thoughts on Yoshi’s Crafted World.

    Star Wars Episode I: Racer (A Re-released N64 Classic!)

    star wars n64 pod racer switch released game revi

    Look no further, 'tis I Jedi Master Mr. Dave Pizza with an encoded message from the Tatooine system where there is sand everywhere. I've been wanting to do a piece on Star Wars for ages now. When the Skywalker Saga concluded last year, I felt like a muted voice in an ocean of opinions. This blog didn't even exist then, but everybody was all ""MEH" STARMWARMS, WAT!" The tide is falling back though, and I want to take a moment to talk to you about Star Wars Episode I: Pod Racer and how Star Wars has affected me over the…

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2: It’s All Here

    lego marvel super heroes 2 gameplay review

    The subtitle “It’s All Here” says it all. I’ve tried a few Marvel games over the years, and I’ve seen a good handful of the movies. Never really delved into the comics, but I feel they are well represented in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. I went into this game thinking maybe it’d be isolated to Avengers characters without much divergence. There are PLENTY of Marvel Heroes in this game though, and you’ll have no trouble finding them. Within the first couple of chapters of game I played or interacted with the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor, She-Hulk, Wasp, Gwenpool…

    The Sims 4: A Viable Substitute for Reality!

    sims 4 title screen

    The Sims had a demo for Windows 98 that I found as a teenager. My sister and I both were absolutely enthralled with it. I made a Japanese shoji house with a lawn made of swimming pools and carpeted sidewalks between the rooms. I made a bachelor pad with a dance club in the attic. I made my sims drink juice and blow bubbles for days. Oh yeah, it's The Sims!

    Super Mario 3D All Stars: It’sa me! It’sa me! It’sa me! Ad Infinitum!

    super mario 3d all stars title

    Super Mario 3D All Stars for all parties interested, is a special release from Nintendo this year for the Switch which contains three classic Mario games spruced up for HD and available for a limited time offer in physical as well as digital form. They're serious about the limited time too, which has some scratching their heads but it is what it is. I don't sign on as Dave Ubercollector Pizza instead of Dave Pizza, but I believe this is what is called a chase. Or something.

    Animal Crossing: Getting Started

    animal crossing new horizons ver. 1.5.1 scoot umbrella title

    This game is for Nintendo Switch only! I should have mentioned that. In fact, this game is essentially the major reason I now have a Nintendo Switch. There are so many good games for Switch that are perfectly mindful and low stress, but the media circling around how wonderful this game actually did sell me in a moment of post-materialistic rebellion that I actually don’t really regret. This game took me to a new realm of peaceful gameplaying.
