Having played through Virginia and having time to properly digest its plot, I definitely disagree with a few of the reviews that talk about how incredibly disjointed the game feels and how the story (if there is a story to them) is too convoluted to understand. Personally, I think there not only

“Pankapu” Brings Dreams to Life w/ Beautiful Visuals!

Pankapu is a new action-adventure platformer (quite the mouthful!) from Too Kind Studios that released on September 21, 2016.

Item Hunting & More in “Zelda: ALTTP” Episode 2!

The second episode here of my retro playthrough of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is a good bit shorter than the first one because it’s essentially a bridge between dungeons. Last time, we left off with having completed the Eastern Palace dungeon and receiving the Pegasus Boots from

Be Sure to Visit the “Valley!”

If you haven’t heard of the Valley before, you may end up thanking me after you read this post because it’s an amazing PC adventure that released on August 24 that probably flew a bit under most people’s radars. It’s a game that intrigued me ever since I first started getting press

Until this past weekend I had no idea what Inkarnate was, but out of sheer luck while searching for a specific map of Hyrule I happened to stumble upon it. I wish I had actually found this application some time ago because it would have been really helpful. A while back I
