Review: Detroit: Become Human

Someone at my previous job who also played video games recommended Detroit: Become Human to me, and I put it on my list for further research. (I like to do research before I actually buy a game. Games are expensive. You don’t want to buy something that turns out not to be your kind of game.) The reviews for this game were good, and my favourite online retailer happened to have it as a Black Friday sale, so I decided to give it a chance. (Don’t get me started on how Black Friday really doesn’t need to be a thing here). I’m glad I made that particular decision.

Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Though I’d heard the title Horizon Zero Dawn come up a few times here and there on the internet after the game was released, I hadn’t really thought about buying and playing it after I finished God of War and saw some pictures on the internet of Kratos, Atreus and Aloy, and also of Geralt of Rivia and Aloy. I was intrigued, read some reviews and purchased the game.

Review: Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

I bought Uncharted: The Nathan Drake collection in a combination deal with my Playstation. The collection is comprised of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted: Among Thieves and Uncharted: Drake’s Deception. I finished the last game of the three on the 2nd of April. And what a ride it was.

Before I bought the games I didn’t really know anything about the Uncharted series except for the fact that it was about an explorer. I figured it was something like Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider. I was right, kinda.

Review: Dragon Age: Inquisition

I jumped into the Dragon Age franchise with Dragon Age: Inquisition, an action role-playing game. And, as usual, it’s the third game published. I jumped in without researching the preceding games, and in a way, you don’t really need to. All you need to understand is right there in the game itself. Sure, there must be tons of lore that went right over my head, but that didn’t hamper my enjoyment of the game at all.

Review: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine

I’m just going to come out and say it: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is my favourite game of all the games I’ve played so far since I got my PS4. I have the strange penchant to start with the third installment of game series (God of War, Diablo, Dragon Age), and this time it was no different. I never played the previous games, but I owned The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski, and I read that immediately after starting up the game. I bought this game at the end of 2015, beginning of 2016, and though I finished the main quest of Wild Hunt somewhere in 2017, it wasn’t until yesterday that I finished the last of the two DLC.

Researching laptops for writing

I’ve been thinking of replacing my laptop (which still works perfectly BTW), for a lighter one. I’ve been looking through lists of laptops which are great for writers and taking notes.

The perfect situation for me would be to have a more portable laptop I could use for writing and editing (at home or on the road) and frequent watching of tv shows/series, and a desktop computer for writing/gaming/everything else.

Review: The Last of Us – Left Behind

I finished The Last of Us in February, but it took me until last night to finish playing the single-player DLC Left Behind. I started it pretty enthusiastically, but because – as usual – I kept dying and dying and dying and dying in the most terrible of ways, I lost my appetite for it a little bit. I also got distracted by two The Witcher III expansion packs I bought, though that is a story (review) for another time.

Review: The Last of Us Remastered

I bought this game when buying my PS4 way back in 2015, because I’d heard good things about it and because I’d been following the ‘Teens React to Gaming’ series on YouTube where they played through this game. I was a bit worried that my enjoyment of the game would be lessened by the fact that I already knew most of what would happen, but those worries proved to be unfounded.

Review: Diablo III – Reaper of Souls

I initially bought this game because I was looking for co-op games, so I could play with my younger sister. I bought this one, Mortal Kombat X and got Rayman Legends for my birthday, but I ended up playing this game mostly on my own, because my little sister apparently doesn’t enjoy dungeon crawlers. I, however, do. A lot.
