OPUS: The Day We Found Earth Taught Me Robots are Beautiful REVIEW

I think I recently made a comment that, as I get older, the more I make the heartbreaking conclusion that mankind will never explore the galaxy due to physics and entropy. What a bummer. What if we had explored it though? And what if we went so far that we couldn’t find our way back? That’s what’s going on in OPUS: The Day We Found Earth. OPUS: Data Briefing This game is now… Read the rest

The Beggar’s Ride is a Terrific Old Indie You Should Know About REVIEW

But for the purpose of a true proper treatise on the subject, Iโ€™ll expand.ย  So, thereโ€™s not a ton of backstory in the beginning, not sure if thereโ€™s more later on, but youโ€™re just this little professor dude wandering through… Read the rest

Nintendo Switch Review: Is it Worth It?

I read a headline today that said that, this holiday season, the Nintendo Switch outsold XBox and Playstation 4-1. The Switch is a nice candidate for such a purchase, since it is about $200 cheaper than the next gen console alternatives, but there are some other advantages as well besides price. Recently, I talked about how the Wii U made me re-enter the world of gaming and this site earlier this year. What… Read the rest
