I Dream I’m a Fairy on a Broomstick

The night of 11/21/20, I had another very interesting set of dreams that included another weird visit to Disneyland and a flight through a virtual world.  In the first dream, there was a special event in Disneyland, and each ride had this checklist of sorts.  If you managed to complete every item on the list, you would either receive or get a chance to win a special prize for that particular ride.  Well, as is often the case in such dreams, I never have much time at Disneyland because the time goes by so quickly.  So I decided I had to at least visit my favorite ride, the Haunted Mansion, of course.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time We Got a Crash Game This Good

Though I was many years behind when it came to experiencing the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy (and even then, it was the N. Sane Trilogy on the PS4), I am pleased to say there is finally a Crash game that I got the opportunity to play not so very long after its release date.  Yes, I’m talking about Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, a game I really loved despite some mixed feelings concerning the difficulty level….

Crash Bandicoot 4 Playthrough on Virtual Bastion

I decided to start writing little status updates whenever we start a new gameplay series over on our Virtual Bastion YouTube channel.  I’m a few days late, but I wanted to let you guys know that we recently started a playthrough of the recently released Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time!  Come check it out if you’re interested!

The First Tree is Something Truly Special

The First Tree is an interesting sort of game that I have to approach a bit differently than I would my usual game reviews.  The big difference here is…The First Tree is not really a video game.  It is, but it’s not.  It’s more like an interactive story than anything else.  So if it’s a traditional game you’re after, you might want to pass this one up.  But if you’re interested in something a bit different, then by all means, read on.

Playing as a Two-Year Old in Among the Sleep

Going into Among the Sleep, I had no idea what to expect.  In fact, I was not even aware the game existed until I was searching for the release date for Little Nightmares 2.  Though my search was in vain, I was recommended several horror games, the most intriguing being Among the Sleep, which I held onto for many months in anticipation of recording the game for our Virtual Bastion YouTube channel (shameless advertising is shameless, I know…but the playlist can be found here).  I had heard good things about the game, but ultimately, I had no idea what to expect aside from one simple detail.  The game is played entirely from the perspective of a two-year old.

Inmost Is As Beautiful As It Is Eerie

I first became aware of Inmost thanks to a trailer on YouTube.  I don’t recall even finishing the trailer because the first few moments had already piqued my interest.  The game’s surprisingly beautiful pixel art style and eerie atmosphere was what hooked me.  Oftentimes, it is unwise to judge a game based solely on such shallow details, but I am happy to say that Inmost was one poorly-researched game that paid off.  Having recently published my playthrough of the game over on our Virtual Bastion YouTube channel, I thought it was about time I wrote a review so you, my dear readers, can decide for yourself if Inmost is worth your time.
