Game On

Paige FTW: The Hubris Of Man

Here’s a theme dominating our pop culture landscape at the moment — the idea that man has overreached, destroyed the balance of his earthly surroundings and paid a terrible price for it.

Game review: ‘Super Mega Baseball 2,’ a monster dinger

Baseball and PC gaming used to be the best of friends almost 30 years ago, but offerings in 2018 are incredibly sparse (apart from the sea of stat simulator baseball games).

Paige FTW: Diving In ‘Horizon: Zero Dawn’

I am by nature deeply slow and perpetually behind, so it’s hardly surprising that now, yes, only now, have I finally had the chance to dive into Horizon: Zero Dawn. I had heard nothing but acclaim for this PlayStation 4 exclusive, even if it was ultimately overshadowed by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Game review: ‘Light Fall’ is a light snack

The land of Numbra is bereft of light. It’s a land blanketed by nightfall. But nightfall threatens to turn into total darkness, as shadow hovers over the Kamloops tribe. Only an unnamed shadow can save the tribe and prevent the end of their world, but he’ll have to use every ounce of agility in his body.

Paige FTW: A History of Violence

Shadow of the Tomb Raider, due Sept. 14 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, promises to conclude Lara Croft’s origin reboot and show her final transformation into the titular raider of tombs.

The third game in the “Tomb Raider” reboot once again stars Camilla Luddington.

Paige FTW: The Death Of The Mother

The trope of father and child, alone in the wilderness, is not uncommon these days: Joel and Ellie of The Last of Us, battling through the zombie apocalypse to find catharsis based on lies; Logan’s reinterpretation of Wolverine and X-23 as unwilling father and daughter; and now God of War brings Kratos into the vein of unwilling fatherhood with Atreus.

For adults that may be reading this, it’s safe to say no one was the same person they once were when they were younger. Life changes, things happen, everyone meets people or experiences the kind of events that reshape their perspectives on life, society, and their outlook on existence.

Paige FTW: Games Within Games

The recent Kingdom Hearts III trailer showing off ­Game & Watch-style mini-games (which Sora, naturally, plays on a little handheld system) got me thinking about the best video game mini-games.

Game review: ‘The Council Episode One: The Mad Ones,’ genre evolution

Despite technical flaws, the Telltale formula has propelled the studio to the upper echelons of gaming, leading more developers to leap into the episodic adventure pond following their games’ success.
