In hindsight, 2009 was a great year to be a gamer. Several definitive I.P.’s had their first installment, a few superb sequels were released, and most studios were not afraid to get experimental with their games.

Fallout 76 First Impressions: Shockingly Fun!

I went into Fallout 76 sure I would hate it. I mean, instead of taking the effort to actually develop a proper story with actual characters, towns, and factions, it seemed like Bethesda just pushed something out with as little work as possible. “Every character is a real person” sounded like marketing garbage and an epic fail.

Google’s Project Stream: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Impressions

About three weeks ago I read about Google’s new closed beta (United States only, sadly) game streaming technology.

INSOMNIA: The Ark First Impressions

So…where should I start? Right, INSOMNIA: The Ark is not a good game, not a complete disaster but damn the game feels outdated. Of course this is not a Triple-A game, the goal on Kickstarter was seventy thousand US dollars and that was a couple years ago. Mono Studio are the developers behind the game and if I am not mistaken this is their first game. Published by Hero Craft which mostly publishes video games for mobile phones; honestly this feels like a mobile game and plays like a mobile game. Did I mention the game costs thirty dollars? No I didn’t because it sounds ridiculous. No one should pay more than ten dollars, at least as it is now. I am not saying this is the worst game ever but usually unfinished games do not cost more than ten dollars.
