Uncharted 4: Chapters 12 – 15

Watch as I play chapters twelve through fifteen of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. My thoughts from day four: Naughty Dog managed to create both the best written and best looking game this generation. To me, this is the new measuring stick against which all Triple A games should be compared. Check back tomorrow 5/14/16 as I will be streaming the remainder of the game, and come back next week for my final review.

Uncharted 4: Chapters 7 – 11

Watch as I play chapters seven through eleven of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. My thoughts from day three: I’m glad I didn’t seek out the second half of the E3 Demo so the best action sequence of the series wasn’t spoiled for me. The real standout sequence actually came right afterwards, however, with Drake and Elena’s emotional exchange in the hotel room. Check back tomorrow 5/13/16 as I will be streaming the next few chapters, and come back next week for my final review.

Uncharted 4: Chapters 4-6

Watch as I play chapters four through six of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. My thoughts from day two: It’s a little slower to get into the action than I’m used to, but that’s a small price to pay for the tremendous character development we’re getting.  The Last of Us influences are clear, and Uncharted 4 is better for it. Check back tomorrow 5/12/16 as I will be streaming the next few chapters, and come back next week for my final review.

Uncharted 4: Chapters 1-3

Watch as I play the first three chapters of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. My initial thoughts: It’s the most visually impressive game I’ve ever played, and it’s fun as hell. Check back tomorrow 5/11/16 as I will be streaming the next few chapters, and come back next week for my final review.

Retro Rehab: WWF Royal Rumble

Step 4: WWF Royal Rumble

Forgive me readers for I have sinned. It’s been four weeks since my last rehab session. As you might have guessed, I’ve fallen off the wagon. I can’t shake my Destiny addiction and my rehab is suffering. In an attempt to get back on the wagon, I’ve temporarily skipped steps 2 and 3 in favor of step 4, the quicker-to-beat WWF Royal Rumble. It might be a cop out, but what do you expect from an addict?

Retro Rehab: A Link to the Past

I have a confession: I was a deprived as a child. I wasn’t deprived of food or shelter, but of video games. Though I begged my parents ever since the moment I could first speak for a Super Nintendo to call my very own, they refused to break. In fact, I think they derived just a little bit of enjoyment out of watching me suffer through a childhood without a SNES to keep me company. And though I finally broke my parents by the Christmas of 1997, the Super Nintendo had all but faded into irrelevance. My parents were seduced by the allure of 3D, and though I loved my new Nintendo 64, I’ve been chasing the dragon that is the Super Nintendo ever since. With the love and support of my bros, I’ve admitted myself into the Retro Rehab 10-Step Program:
