Valkyria Chronicles

Valkyria Chronicles Digital war is hell, man. Both of my grandpas served in World War II, and I occasionally picked their brains about their service as officers before the Air Force became its own branch. For the most part, they were open about their roles since they never (to the best of my knowledge) experienced frontline combat. One of my

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake I, uh, guess we’re going to be here for a while… Testing. Testing. Is this thing on? The domain seems to be updated. SSL was recertified. Hey, I even see some comments! Huh. Everything seems to be working properly. Guess we can take the tarp off this site. 2020 turned into quite the ordeal. Suffice it

Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3 That feeling you have when the other reviewers were right. It was probably obvious in my review of the Resident Evil 2 Remake that I’ve always loved the Resident Evil series. While 4 is my favorite, 2 (or the remake in this case) is my second favorite. That leaves 3, which has always sort of been in

South Park The Fractured But Whole

South Park The Fractured But Whole Spoiler Alert: Sparked joy is related to how much you like South Park. (I know. Shocking.) South Park is so culturally relevant that it is appropriate to say most people have a favorite memory. The show premiered when I was just starting seventh grade, so of course I found stuff like a talking piece

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter When the backlog becomes intimidating, make someone else play a game for you! Mark’s Note: This guest review is part of a potential series in which I commission games I own to friends who have played them because I probably will never get around to doing so. This first review is by Day Devereux. We

Suikoden V

Kretzschmarmark/ April 20, 2020/ Uncategorized/ 3 comments

Suikoden V A retrospective of the last true Suikoden game. What happens when the tedium of quarantine and nostalgia collide? If you’re like me, you fall back on one of your trap games. You know the kind of game I’m referring to. A game that you’ve played at least five times, yet you can’t help yourself and inevitably replay it

Ace Combat 7

Kretzschmarmark/ April 10, 2020/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Ace Combat 7 Fly the Angry Skies! Covid-19 has impacted all aspects of our lives, including how we work, socialize, prioritize responsibilities, and even exercise (working out from home has taught me that my endurance was nowhere near as good as I believed, so that’s the one good thing I will take from this experience). However, since my last post,

Punch Club

Kretzschmarmark/ January 3, 2020/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Punch Club It’s certainly a genre-melder, but some mechanics prevent it from being fun for long stretches. This year’s already off to a complicated start, isn’t it? I’ve always been skeptical about resolutions, but one of mine in 2020 is to make a dent in my game library. On top of everything else I must do this year, it’s a
