Melody’s Escape – A Game Review

Melody’s Escape – A Game Review

So I recently downloaded this game off of Steam, it was 50% off and it intrigued me as all games of this genre tend to do. It’s a rhythm based music game that uses your own song library from your computer to create these obstacle course-like tracks. Obviously this isn’t the first game to do this, but it’s the first one I’ve played that actually does it well. The surprising thing about it is that it’s in early access, so it’s not even fully complete. Continue reading “Melody’s Escape – A Game Review”

Shameless Self-Promotion: Rocket League, Big Pharma and Basement; or, What I’ve Been Up To Lately: Ulcerative Colitis, Short Stories and YouTube Videos

I haven’t posted on here in a while, but don’t think that means I’m not doing anything. First of all, I’ve been working hard to maintain my digestive system that I talked about in this post. Which, by the way, I discovered the best way to fight off Ulcerative Colitis is through DIET! Like, hello? Why do doctors say that diet has nothing to do with it when it basically has everything to do with it? I’ve cut out grains and gluten, all processed sugar (I only eat honey to sweeten things) and all corn products (including corn itself).

Seven Days to Die
Lots of fun playing with friends
Not so much solo

It’s Showtime!: A Video Game Review and a Short Story

I recently purchased a game on Steam called “Showtime!” It’s pretty fun. Basically you’re the head of a movie studio and you’re in charge of hiring script writers, actors, directors, etc. and making sure all the movies and sets and stuff are within your budget. You have to manage expenses and try to stay in the green. Some movies will do well, some movies won’t, but above all, try to at least make your money back.

Game Reviews: “Always Sometimes Monsters” and “The Forest”

I know I haven’t written a blog post in a while and I apologise. You see, I graduated from university with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and since then I’ve basically been working a lot. But when I’m not working I’m mostly playing video games.

I’ve gotten into this whole “indie game” and “alpha game” fad on Steam. Lately I’ve been going crazy just downloading a bunch of indie games and alpha games (I’m downloading “Project Zomboid” as I write this). The two latest ones I’ve been playing are: a “life simulator” called “Always Sometimes Monsters” and an open-world horror/survival game called “The Forest”.

Now here are my reviews. Continue reading “Game Reviews: “Always Sometimes Monsters” and “The Forest””
