Sombra in Action! Jett Plays Overwatch

D.Va is forever my Overwatch bae, but I’m continuing to expand my horizons to see what works for me from a gameplay perspective! This time, I put an extended period of time into Sombra! I like her rapid-fire sub-machine gun, as well as the way she can undermine her opponents’ tactics with her hacking ability! My Mercy also makes a cameo appearance in what I thought was an inspired performance!

Hollow Knight Review

Throughout the course of my history as a gamer, there are two game franchises that are my kryptonite: Dark Souls and Metroid. The former brutalized me with its unforgiving combat and its need for players to really study the nuances of it all in order to scrape by. The latter exploits my inability to memorize directions. To this day, I’ve still never beaten a Metroid game for that reason, even though I own most of them.

Hollow Knight is the twisted child of those games mashed together. With a labyrinthian cave to explore with limited navigation guides, methodical combat that will punish button-mashing, and a limited save system that will regularly cause you to lose many minutes of play by virtue of not being able to locate the next save point in time, I initially had no plans to play this one at all. Never say never I guess, as the rave reviews and a sizable discount inspired me to give this one a go.

Spider-Man, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and My Approach to Tackling Multiple Hot New Releases

With the busy season for video game releases in high gear, it’s inevitable that you’ll run into a scenario where you’ll end up with multiple games you want to play at about the same time. Generally speaking, this is awesome! For me, I got Spider-Man and Shadow of the Tomb Raider within a week of each other. But how do I split my time between a number of games at once? I don’t.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes Impressions

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a cheeky take on one of the most horrifying tasks one can perform. With the aid of a few friends an a 23-page manual that exists outside of the game, you’re tasked with diffusing every bomb placed in front of you. Can you all keep your cool under pressure and solve each ticking time bomb before they blow up in your face?

Acer Predator Thronos and my Frivolous Gaming-Related Purchases

At IFA 2018, Acer revealed what might be the most insane gaming chair of all-time. The Predator Thronos is an elaborate gaming chair that supports up to three 27″ monitors, has a kick-out leg rest, lights, vibrates along with the games, and is motorized so that the whole apparatus can rotate 140 degrees if you feel like playing while lying down. Before we even talk about the chair’s weight (400lbs!) or its price tag ($1,399 USD!!!), the very conceit of this chair is certainly above and beyond a more “reasonable” gaming expense.

I may not have spent $1,400 on a chair, but I have spent my money on gaming-related items that were frivolous in nature. Here are a few of them!
