Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (PS5) Review
Video Version

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was announced last year on June 11th during the PlayStation 5 showcase. Alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, I was extremely excited for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. The title showcased the power of the PS5, instantly going from one dimension to another. The reveal of a new playable lombax, who will soon be known as Rivet, also had me excited for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Her inclusion within the story keeps things interesting. Gameplay wise, it looked like the most refined Ratchet & Clank title…

It Takes Two by Hazelight Studios (Game Review)
Video Version

Key Art for It Takes Two.

It Takes Two is a co-operative action-adventure platformer from Hazelight Studios.

Their previous work, 2018’s A Way Out, impressed me on the basis of creating a co-operative required experience while having a compelling story and variety of third-person over-the-shoulder gameplay. A Way Out is still one of my favorite games from that year because of its co-operative required nature. The gameplay and story are good but a forced co-op experience is almost unheard of, even for today.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game — Complete Edition has been released to the masses after being gone from digital stores since 2014. Based on the graphic novel titled Scott Pilgrim, the game was released in the Summer of 2010 as a tie-in release with the movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010). All versions of Scott Pilgrim follow the similar plot line of defeating the seven evil exes of Ramona Flowers, so Scott and her can date. During the game’s release, it was enjoyed by fans of retro style beat’em ups and Scott Pilgrim fans. The…

With the year coming to a close, let’s look back on my Top 10 Best Games of 2020. I don’t think I have to reiterate this but this year has been insane with everything that’s been going on. For gaming, this year has been a bit hectic too with the controversial release of The Last of Us Part II and the most recent mess that was Cyberpunk 2077. The ten games I’m going to discuss are my personal favorite games from the year. I wasn’t able to play…

Marvel’s Spider-Man on the PS4 recently got a remaster upgrade for the PlayStation 5. Only available through Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ Ultimate Edition, the remaster comes packaged in as a voucher code. Once redeemed, you’re able to experience the remaster with all of its visual upgrades and fully see the new Peter Parker model in action. After playing through this game once again on the PS5, how good are the visual bumps?

The story and gameplay is still the same from the PS4 version (full spoiler review for story & gameplay thoughts). The…

The next generation of gaming is finally upon us. The Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 have been released as the newest and hottest items for this holiday season. With the PS5, we saw the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales from Insomniac Games. Revealed earlier this year during the PS5 event in June, this announcement had many Spidey fans excited for a solo Miles Morales experience. I was hyped to see the return of Insomniac’s Spider-Man since it’s my favorite game on the PS4. This title’s intention is to explore Miles’ character further after a full…

With the next generation of gaming upon us, it’s appropriate to look back on the defining games of this generation. Today, I’m going to be ranking the best PlayStation 4 console exclusives. Some of these games are available on PC due to later releases but they’re all PS4 console exclusive at the end of the day. I’m going to be starting from my #1 and going down to my #10 since I think a lot of my audience knows what my favorite PS4 game of all time is. …

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time was leaked earlier this year in June, showing off the box art to the game’s release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We later saw an official reveal trailer days after the leaks. I have been waiting for a brand new Crash Bandicoot game in this classic style of gameplay since Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy’s release in 2017. The title was financially and critically successful. Activision first gave the N. Sane Trilogy treatment to the Spyro trilogy and Crash Team Racing before surprisingly dropping a new Crash Bandicoot game on us…

More than one way to organize Gameboy games? How are NES & PS1 related?

YouTube Video Version

Part of being a video game collector, you need to figure out ways to store and organize your collection. Here are some tips for organizing your game collection:

My Ikea BILLY Bookcase

First tip is kind of obvious and self explanatory. Shelves are going to be your best friend if you want to display your collection. Bookcases, Multi-media storage, or custom shelves is the method I would go personally. Bookcases may not fit your games to their exact dimensions but you can put figurines and collectibles in…
