    Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

    Incredible from start to finish.

    Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

    There are many more review "buzz words" I could use to describe A Plague Tale, but I will spare you from...

    Review: Close to the Sun (PC)

    Come out to the Helios, we'll get together, have a few laughs…


    Close to the Sun is the latest offering in the genre mashup that blends horror with a story driven narrative experience. It is developed by Storm in a Teacup and published by Wired Productions. This particular review focuses on the PC version of the game, but will be coming later this year to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It should be noted that the PC release looks to be an Epic Games Store exclusive. I maybe wouldn't hold my breath on seeing it appear on other PC storefronts, at least not any time soon....

    Review: Ultralite DT Blue Light Filtering Glasses from Eagle Eyes


    I spy, with my filtered eye, something that is…

    Today, we are going to be reviewing something a little bit outside of the usual. Usually, we typically just review video games or even the occasional piece of hardware for TGN, but a review for glasses? Well, it's certainly a new one for us.

    These are not any old pair of glasses though. These are the Ultralite DT from Eagle Eyes. What sets them apart from other glasses is the promise that they will protect your eyes from blue light that blasts your eyes from any number of digital screens. Eagle Eyes has a nice write-up that talks about some of the ways in which blocking out blue light can help ease the strain on your eyes. The Science of Blue Light FiltersNaturally, you don't have to take their word for it. There have been a number of articles that talk about how staring at computer screens or phones can cause added strain. The ...

    Gaming's Biggest Disappointments 2018


    2018 sure was a long decade. Let us forego the boring introduction and just get into gaming's biggest disappointments of 2018. The games seen here are only games that I played, with the exception of one of them. I am sure there are other terrible games, but I probably did not play them.


    The Quiet Man
    The Quiet Man is just straight up trash with no redeeming qualities. This game has quickly taken the title of "the worst game I have ever played in my life." The action was pathetic. The controls were garbage. The character animation was abysmal. The live-action...

    Review: Last Year: The Nightmare (PC)


    A solid asymmetrical survival-horror game that's light on content.

    Asymmetrical multiplayer games have been going steady for the past few years now. Some of the biggest games in that particular genre include the long departed Evolve, the still ongoing Dead by Daylight, and even Friday the 13th if you're into that sort of thing. You can now add in Last Year: The Nightmare to the mix as it combines 5 versus 1 multiplayer with elements of survival-horror. As with those other titles, Last Year places one player in the shoes of a bloodthirsty murderer while the rest of the players play as one of five teenagers trying to survive and escape. What it delivers is a well-crafted gameplay experience that ultimately comes up short on content. Last Year: The Nightmare relies on a number of tried and true horror movie clichés. The group of teenagers include the nerdy kid, the popular girl, a stereotypical jock, and m...

    Review: Call of Cthulhu (PC)

    Choices matter?
    Call of Cthulhu places you in the shoes of Edward Pierce, a private investigator that falls firmly in the overused trope of being one drink away from full blown alcoholism. Pierce is a man with a mysterious past and, apparently, a pre-destined future. A future that finds him headed towards Darkwater Island in an attempt to get some concrete answers as to what really happened to the Hawkins family. Was it a simple accident that consumed the lives of a mother, father, and their child, or was it something far more sinister? Darkwater is as much of a character in Call of Cthulhu as Pierce or the other island inhabitants. It's as inviting to outsiders as a slap across the face, but serves as the perfect setting for a story that involves the eldritch monster Cthulhu. Darkwater seems almost lost in time, shrouded in what seems like a perpetual green gloom and mist th...

    Review: EWinRacing Flash XL Gaming Chair


    When it comes to "gaming" chairs, it is obvious that the opinions are as varied as the ever-growing number of brands in the market. Some companies push for the quick buck with products that are very clearly inferior in one way or another. These companies tend not to last long. Really, that's true for any industry. It's just common sense.

    I was never super into the whole "gaming" aesthetic. I am still not. However, I was offered a chance to review a gaming chair from a company I had never heard of before called EWinRacing. I had no idea who they are. I had no idea if they were one of those companies that just wanted a quick buck at the cost of quality or not. Nevertheless, I went ahead and accepted their offer to review one of their chairs for gaming. Even now, I do not know much about EWin except that I now know they make a quality, comfy chair. I was allowed to choose one chair to review and decided upon one of the Flash XL chairs, specifically the "FLB" model. I went with this one be...

    Review: Strange Brigade (PC)


    It's the 1930s and you are one of four (five if you pre-ordered) unique individuals that make up the very fine, yet very bizarre, group known as the Strange Brigade. It's up to you to save the world from dastardly devils, unruly undead, and a bevy of bigger than life bosses. Just how do you accomplish this, you may ask? It's simple! You shoot, you loot, explore, and then you shoot and loot some more.

    Such is the nature of Strange Brigade from Rebellion, the development studio that brought us the Sniper Elite franchise. Strange Brigade is a third-person action-adventure title that finds you and up to three additional friends making their way through vast levels located throughout Egypt. You will utilize an arsenal of weaponry and mystic powers to overcome foes brought back from the dead because the Witch Queen Seteki has returned after 4,000 years and wants to take over the world. Oh, that whacky Seteki. When will she...

    Review: Yakuza Kiwami 2 (PS4)

    The best Yakuza game to date.
    Since January of 2017, I've had the good fortune to be able to review every Yakuza release that has come out on the PlayStation 4. It started with Yakuza 0, followed by Yakuza Kiwami, and then Yakuza 6 just a few months back. I have seen the beginning and the emotional end to this franchise. I have played it across two different game engines. Every entry has offered up something new and unique to experience while still maintaining a certain alluring appeal that kept me hooked through dozens upon dozens of gameplay hours.

    Fast-forward slightly and we arrive here at the present day with the Western release of Yakuza Kiwami 2, a remake of the 2006 PlayStation 2 game, Yakuza 2. It runs on the all-new Dragon Engine that we first saw with Yakuza 6. It also adds on a heaping helping of additional story content on top of the original title. It also somehow manages...

    Final Review: We Happy Few

    A fleeting Joy.
    The other week, I put up a review in progress for We Happy Few. For the sake of simplicity, I left that intact below this "final" review section up top here. So, how did We Happy Few fare given the extra time I spent with it? Not well. Not well at all. As the hours continued on, the love affair I had with the game started to chip away. At first it was just a minor annoyance when I would run into issues like poor A.I., but it became harder and harder to ignore. There are only so many times where you could just write off seeing an NPC become stuck on world geometry and walk in place. There are only so many times where it stops being surprising to see NPCs appear and disappear on the exact second of sunrise and sunset. I lost track of how many NPCs I have seen "sitting" in the air, a ways away from any actual chair. Sadly, these were all experiences encountered after a massive patch for the game that came out shortly after release. A mechanic in the game finds you consuming Joy...

    Review: Vampyr (PC)


    Interview with a vampire.
    Please do not adjust your monitors or television sets. I did not misspell "Vampire" for the title. The game is actually entitled Vampyr and it is a legitimate spelling of the name given to the undead blood suckers we have all come to know and sometimes even love. Vampyr, the game, is a new entry in the sometimes too saturated action-RPG genre. And while it does indeed share a lot of similarities with other games in the genre like Bloodborne, , and even The Witcher, Vampyr manages to be a stand out experience. To say that Vampyr is a flawed masterpiece would not be a lie. In a lot of ways, Vampyr really pushes the action RPG genre forward while still having a few cumbersome issues that hold it back from true greatness. On the action side, we have a combat system that immediately made me think of Bloodborne, featuring f...

    Review: Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (PS4)

    How far would you go for family?
    For the past year now, the Yakuza series has been burning brightly on the PlayStation 4. We had the fantastic Yakuza 0 make its way to Western audiences early in 2017, followed up by the ever so slightly inferior but still amazing Yakuza Kiwami a few months later. Despite these games existing for more than a decade across three different console generations, these PS4 releases are the first time many of us have ever gotten to experience the amazing character of Kazuma Kiryu and his world. And now in early 2018 we have the release of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, the final chapter in old man Kiryu's tale. Cast any worries you have aside because Sega says farewell to Kazuma "The Dragon of Dojima" Kiryu in grand fashion. The biggest draw of the Yakuza games has been and will always continue to be the fantastic storylines; these include the storylines contained in the bite-sized sub-mission...

    Review: Kingdom Come: Deliverance (PC)

    I don't remember history being this buggy.
    If there is one area that video games come up short in, it's when they attempt to tackle real-life history. Specifically, games come up well short in being historically accurate without also including a healthy dose of embellishment or suspension of disbelief. In nearly all of the games that focus on real-world history, you almost always play as some overpowered jack-of-all-trades. Yes, this includes games and franchises such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, Total War, Civilization, and even Assassin's Creed.

    Thankfully, we have a game like Kingdom Come: Deliverance that comes along to not only embrace the idea of a "historically accurate" game but to completely redefine what the genre should be striving to achieve. Kingdom Come is set in 15th century Bohemia and no, you aren't some all-powerful character that somehow knows how to fight like a God and tank hits like your body was made of solid steel. You start out as a nobody named...
