Lost Ark – Month and a Half On

Personally? I’ve still been playing. Still struggling to find the time to slot in posts between playing probably excessive amounts of both Lost Ark and Elden Ring. Reading has taken a fairly severe backseat...

Elden Ring – A Game of Two Parts

Elden Ring is a difficult game to talk about. Not least of which, because there is a very heightened sense of concern for spoilers for any content so much as breathing the game’s name....

Thrown for a Loop

I went into the weekend assuming I would be playing Valheim. Like everyone else is. I’d even setup some time to play with a friend. Maybe there was going to be a bit of...

Animal Crossing Just Might Not Be for Me

And that is something of a disappointment. As seems to be the case with Switch exclusives — it wasn’t really one on my personal gaming radar. I had no intent to pick it up...
