Josh’s Top 10 Games of 2018

2018 was a year full of highly awaited sequels, anticipated new franchises and a surprising number of “battle royale” modes top publishers were trying to cash-in on due to Fortnite’s monstrous popularity. There have been let-downs, microtransaction debates and studios shutting down that have let franchises in limbo as well, but despite these topics of debate, 2018 saw one of the best years in gaming. All three consoles had stellar first party support and blockbuster multi-platform games such as Red […]

Alex’s Best of 2018

Alex’s Best of 2018

2018 was an interesting year for myself and gaming. To start the year, my apparently cheap self finally sprang for an external hard drive, ready to take on ALL THE GAMES… on just one console, because I didn’t buy two. But hey, I got the time!

Jordan’s Top 10 Games of 2018

The past several years in gaming have all felt like they’re trying to one-up each other. I keep expecting a crash, a year in which every developer just happens to be busy working on a new game that won’t come out until later, so we’re left with the dregs and have time to catch up on our backlogs.

Theresa’s Top 10 Games of 2018

It’s another year done and the games I played were not disappointing (except Sushi Striker). As a matter of fact, there are several surprisingly deep titles.

God of War and Grief

God of War and Grief

Grief is a monster you cannot kill. You have to find a way to live with it. I avoided God of War for a long time because I wasn’t ready to play a character that was so casual about death.

“Octopath Traveler” Review

“Octopath Traveler” Review

When “Project Octopath Traveler” was first unveiled at the Nintendo Switch Reveal Event in late 2016, its visual style left gamers with collective “Ooos and Ahhs.”  We knew it would be a title to look out for, but we didn’t know that it would turn out to be a feature title that would end up pioneering the Switch as a go-to destination for JRPGs down the road.

“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” Review

“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” Review

When it comes to the success of the Switch, we’ve always talked about how integral the Wii U Evacuation Plan is.  But when the latest Super Smash Bros. was announced, we didn’t know whether it would be a port of the Wii U game or a new experience entirely, and it ended up being the latter and so much more.

“Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” Review

“Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey” Review

The year off in 2016 for Assassin’s Creed was a much needed breath of fresh air as the series returned to reinvigorate the franchise into new and exciting directions.
