Around Thanksgiving of 2020, I was browsing the Nintendo and PlayStation stores for some great deals. One of the best was a 90% discount on a game called Abzu, which I got for $2 (its usual price is $20). If it wasn’t for the cheap price, I might not have bought this game because part of me worried it would be a tad boring. Relaxing, yes, but otherwise uninteresting. Fortunately, I was very wrong, and this post is going to cover both my review of the game and, as the title suggests, a personal tale of my own.Continue reading How Abzu Helped Me Overcome an Irrational Fear
Join us as we play through the relaxing and beautiful aquatic world of Abzu, where we get the chance to swim amongst countless real-life sea creatures, including those now extinct!

Ever since I have begun buying digital games, I have found no shortage of interesting, artsy looking options. Beautiful they may be, but more often than not, these games prove why you shouldn’t judge something based on looks alone. The most recent example of this is The Mooseman, an extremely intriguing looking game that is meant to explore the ancient mythology of Finno-Ugric culture.Continue reading The Mooseman: Beautiful, Eerie, Yet Unsatisfying
As I peruse the demos currently available on the PlayStation Store, I am bombarded with a staggering number of similar looking RPGs. Typically a genre that consumes a whole lot of one’s time, RPGs are kind of a big commitment, and so it makes sense to check out the demo first in order to decide if this is a game I want to spend a lot of time with. One such RPG that stood out to me was Earthlock.Continue reading Earthlock: Demo Review
One of the games I grew up with was The Lost Vikings for the SNES, where you would control three unique characters in order to solve puzzles and reach the exit alive. Recently, I downloaded a demo of a game called Trine 2: The Complete Story that feels somewhat similar. You control three characters, Amadeus the wizard, who can levitate objects and create blocks out of thin air, Pontius the knight, who is equipped with a sword and shield, and Zoya the thief, who is armed with her bow and trusty grappling hook.Continue reading Trine 2: Demo Review
Spelunky falls into a broad category of games that I have heard good things about, but have never actually played. Thanks to the trial version that I downloaded on the PS4, I finally had a chance to experience this game for myself. Though my initial impression was fairly neutral, I quickly grew to appreciate Spelunky for its high difficulty and randomly generated levels, where you never quite know what’s going to happen.Continue reading Spelunky: Demo Review
G’day, folks, in recent times, I have taken to downloading free demos as a means to experience a greater variety of games without having to pay for something I may not end up liking. (Y’know, the very reason demos exist.) Being someone who adores animals, especially those of the feline variety, it was no wonder that Cat Quest was my first choice, a bright and colorful RPG starring, well, little cartoon cats. Please note that this review is based on my experience with the demo only and not the full game.Continue reading Cat Quest: Demo Review
