A Very Late Look At: Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell

On a whim, I decided to give Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell a try. I loved Saints Row: the Third, I liked Saints Row 2 whenever it worked but I didn’t like Saints Row 4. I thought maybe Gat Out of Hell might be a bit of improvement. I don’t know. It’s all just… strange. I mean, right off the bat, you’re not playing as the Boss. You’re playing as Johnny Gat, the Boss’s long time best buddy who got killed off in Saints Row 3 and written back to life in Saints Row 4. Or you can play… [Continue Reading]

Pacific Rim: Uprising – Review!

As a pre-birthday treat, I got to see Pacific Rim: Uprising with the family on the 31st. And it was a good movie. Genuinely a bit of fun. The story follows on from the previous Pacific Rim, being set 10 or so years later after the big victory. They’re still using Jaegars for various bits and pieces, mainly just policing but only seem to have like 5 of them total. And there’s enough scrapyards everywhere that some random kid manages to build a small, single-pilot one. Anyway, there’s been no activity but they’re still training people just in case and… [Continue Reading]

The Black Panther Movie – A Kinda Late Review

So I saw the Black Panther movie. There was none of that nonsense about going to ‘x-only’ screenings or anything like that (same with literally any other movie here) because I live on a tiny little island and the demographic who want to see this film simply don’t care and just want to watch a movie. But it’s a Marvel movie and my brother was desperate to see it, so we went on cheap Tuesday to watch it. Basically? It’s a good movie. Not groundbreaking. Not mind-blowing. Not racist or in your face or insensitive or anything like that. It’s… [Continue Reading]

RIP My Anker Gaming Mouse

After just under three years, my beloved Anker Gaming Mouse died. Really, it’s a bit late to do a review of this mouse since they’re no longer being sold, but fuck it, my poor mouse deserves a decent eulogy after it was unceremoniously thrown into a bin due to it not really being recyclable locally. My mouse died a sudden death, with the wiring going, the thumb buttons breaking and the scroll wheel becoming inoperable all within a couple of days. I shall now sing praises for my mouse. The mouse, bought on Amazon and no longer available, either from… [Continue Reading]

Surviving the Internet…

The fourth Jack Box Party Pack is an interesting one. A very mixed bag of games, many of which honestly go on for way too fucking long. The five games are a little all over the place. Although for a while for us there were only four games because Civic Doodle didn’t work for some stupid reason. I’ve been playing these with the siblings, the parents and some friends and it’s just mixed everywhere. Mostly. Fibbage 3 is just like Fibbage 1 and 2, it isn’t amazingly new or anything even if the art is kinda nice. There’s a new… [Continue Reading]

Flipping Tables, Uno Decks and Exploding Kittens – Tabletop Simulator

My siblings have been begging me to play Tabletop Simulator for ages. I never understood why because we have a large amount of board games at home already, as well as multiple decks of cards. We have Cards against Humanity, the basic pack, and I’m considering buying some expansion packs because of how much awful fun we’ve had playing that game. Tabletop Simulator seems like the sort of thing one would try if all your friends lived in a different country and you desperately wanted to play games together. That’s exactly what it is. Tabletop Simulator is a way to… [Continue Reading]

Doki Doki Literature Club review

Notice: If you haven’t played Doki Doki Literature Club, you really should before you read this article.  I openly admit that there are more relevant modern titles I should be reviewing before Doki Doki Literature Club, but sadly I haven’t played very many newly-released games. Most of my favorites are legacy franchises with infinite replayability, like Payday, Overwatch, and Left 4 Dead. But I couldn’t play any of these games when I spent winter break at my parents for the holidays since I had to leave my desktop in Santa Clara. Luckily this gave me a chance to try a… [Continue Reading]

Battlefield 1 – Turning Tides Review

Hi, this is aabicus with the SPUF of Legend! Battlefield 1 came out with the second half of the Turning Tides DLC earlier this month, and I’m loving every single part of it. Now I need to mention a few qualifiers just to be fair: I didn’t try out any of the new guns because they take a lot of time to unlock and I’m playing on a friend’s account (speaking of which, special thanks to Yessirreebirb for letting me use his account again), where was I oh yeah he’s saving up his warbonds for something else so I mostly… [Continue Reading]

A Story About My Uncle

After playing Just Cause 2, I had a bit of a grappling hook addiction. It was ended by Mannpower Mode in TF2, but before that I was still looking for games to scratch that grappling hook itch. I can’t remembered how I first came across this game. I got it as a gift from my IRL friend for Christmas (I think, it’s been some time), and I spent a fair bit of time playing around when I got it. Recently, I saw it again while looking through my Steam library for something to play (I know I know, first world… [Continue Reading]

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

I actually got to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi on its premiere here where I live. At five in the afternoon on a Thursday though, the theater was half empty and there were almost no kids around. Interesting. Anyway, I saw the movie. I think it was worth €9 for a ticket. There’s no need to see it twice though. I wouldn’t say that Star Wars: The Last Jedi was mind-blowing or anything like that. It was a good action flick with some drama and better dialogue than most other Star Wars films. There’s also a LOT going on… [Continue Reading]
