Jedi: Fallen Order and the benefits of the bare minimum

Let’s go ziplining! (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order/Respawn Entertainment/EA Inc.)

I hadn’t realized I’d sunk forty hours into Jedi: Fallen Order until I’d already done it.


Whoops, I wrote a thing that isn’t about a game I’ve owned for seven years.

This was the first time I used a meme-maker am I good at it yet.

One disadvantage to starting a blog about games you’ve owned for a long time is that you start to get a craving to write about all the games you play.

There’re wearing too many layers for being at the beach (FFXV/Square Enix)

44 hours, 28 minutes, and 49 seconds. That’s how long I played Final Fantasy XV before I finally sailed to the second continent.


Final Fantasy IV and the Glory of the Goofy

Look at all these characters to love (FFIV/square-enix-games.com)

Sometimes, nostalgia lets you down. Thankfully, Final Fantasy IV didn’t.


A brief review of the first Final Fantasy game

I don’t like this game but damn this is cool (Final Fantasy, Square Enix, finalfantasy.fandom.com)

Square released first Final Fantasy came out in 1987, the same year TSR, Inc. began development of the second edition of Dungeons and Dragons. This is a coincidence.

Under a yellow sky, the Martian landscape is covered in strange rock formations and a demonic church rising in the distance.

Mars seems fun, eh? (Doom/id Software/Bethesda/Steam)

There was very little for me to figure out with Doom, really.


Isolation, Perseverance, and Asking for Help in Dark Souls

A large blue knight with a scythe attacks the player character, also a knight but wielding a sword, in a large dark hall.

I don’t know who this is but they look cool as heck (Dark Souls/FromSoftware/Steam)

I’m going start off with a vital confession: I’m not that good at video games.
