    In late 2013, when the PS4 & Xbox One launched, the first game I played on my brand new PS4 was not Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. It was the second game I played but it is the one I want to talk about for reasons which should become...

  • Planets I Want to Explore in the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Sequel

    Star Wars video games give us the means to explore the amazing planets that the franchise has to offer in ways that the movies, and now TV series, never can. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a wonderful example of this and simply reconnoitering the environments of the game...

  • Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Confessions of a Shoot House 24/7 Addict

    2019’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare had been promised to be both a return to the boots-on-the-ground, classic style of the older games in the series and a much-needed evolution for the franchise. For the most part, I feel the game has succeeded at that tough task, in both...
