  • Samurai Warriors 5 – Impressions

    My time with Samurai Warriors 5, the latest Musou/Warriors style game from Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force, has been a mostly enjoyable one. At the time of writing I’m 12 hours in, I’ve messed around with a few different modes and characters and completed 4 chapters of Nobunanga’s Path. One...

  • Star Wars Squadrons’ Refreshing Embrace of the Dark Side

    Back in 2017, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 left me bitterly disappointed. After the first game lacked a story mode, the sequel not only flaunted such a campaign but also promised to deliver a narrative from the imperial perspective. I even read the prequel novel following the prior exploits of...
  • The Last of Us Part III – Exploring Ideas
