I love to write, and I love to game. So, I've combined those two hobbies into one! Some of my favorite games include Fire Emblem, Halo, The Elder Scrolls, and World of Warcraft. Sometimes I like to read the occasional fantasy novel, too!

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury Review

Review
My opinion from 2013 remains relatively unchanged—Super Mario 3D World is a fun and buttery smooth, if a bit generic experience as far as Mario games go.

Valheim Defies Odds as a Bug-Free Early Access Survival Game

Preview

HROT

HROT is a Feverish Slavic Shooter

Preview
If there's one thing I've learned from HROT, it's that Czechoslovakia was a weird place in the late 80s. In my time with the first episode of this Early Access shooter, I came across floating, projectile-shooting heads, teleporting, gas mask-clad soldiers, and a rocket-shooting gymnastics pommel horse out for blood. That's just some of the horrors you'll come across in this trip of a retro FPS.
